Neural DSP Releases the Tone King Imperial MKII Suite

An official plugin collaboration modeling Tone King’s vintage-flavored amp.


The 20w tube combo amp is at the core of this plugin, featuring Rhythm and Lead channels, as well as built-in Spring Reverb and bias-modulated Tremolo. In addition, you’ll find a selection of stomp-boxes commonly found in Neural’s plugin suites, including a MIDI-assignable wah pedal, two overdrives, and a compressor.

“Balancing iconic vintage characteristics and innovation is a paradox very few can reconcile. Tone King is one of the most remarkable examples of this in the world of tube amplifiers. It is packed with gorgeous clean and crunch tones reminiscent of the most iconic era. However, it also comprises unique features like its built-in reactive attenuator – all of which we’ve painstakingly modeled to replicate every sonic nuance,” says Neural CEO Douglas Castro.

Chorus and Stereo Delay have been modeled to provide the warm Bucket Brigade (BBD) sound, and the Reverb covers a wide range, from subtle ambience to almost infinite soundscapes.
