Tone King brings you a fresh take on vintage British style tone with the new Royalist amplifiers.

The Royalist captures the best of authentic vintage British sound by combining vintage "JTM45" girth and sweetness with the aggression and harmonic complexity of a vintage "Plexi", all rendered with the sparkling clarity and lush dimension that Tone King amps are known for.

A custom-voiced Ironman precision attenuator and specially tuned speaker cabinets deliver the "raging stack" experience - both tone and feel - at any volume, down to true bedroom level. A tube-buffered effects loop helps you get the most out of your effects devices while maintaining signal purity.

Value: $2,995

This 1964 Vibrolux Reverb arrived in all-original condition, right down to a two-prong power cord and a death cap wired to the ground switch. The author’s well-worn Strat is the perfect companion.

How our columnist’s risky purchase turned out to be a dusty pre-CBS jewel.

Fat tones from a sweet niche where Les Paul, Gretsch, and Telecaster share the limelight.

Copious, unexpected tones. Cool, useful bass contour control. Very nice build quality. Excellent value.

If you only pay casual attention to Reverend guitars, it’s easy to overlook how different their instruments can be. Some of that may be due to the way Reverends look. There are longstanding styling themes and strong family likenesses among models that can make differentiation a challenge for uninitiated guitar spotters. For instance, the Flatroc reviewed here has more or less the same body as the Charger, Buckshot, and Double Agent OG (which has an entirely different body than the more Jazzmaster-like Double Agent W). If you don’t have an experienced Reverend enthusiast at your side, it can all be a bit mind bending.
