Best valves for Tone King Imperial MKII

The Tone King Imperial Mark 2 amplifier (and the rarer Mark 1 and 20th Anniversary models) use 8 valves to achieve their amazing sound:

  • 3 x ECC83 (also called 12AX7) preamp valves.
  • 1 x Balanced ECC83 for the phase inverter position V5.
  • 1 x ECC81 (12AT7) which goes in position V3.
  • 2 x 6V6S matched power valves/power tubes.
  • 1 x GZ34S (5AR4) rectifier valve.

Over time your valves will lose their tone and their power. A brand new set of valves will get your amp sounding better than ever.

We always recommend JJ valves for this amplifier. This is because they guarantee you get awesome tone and long life and they don’t cost a fortune.

Originally, this amp was fitted with Sovtek 7025 12AX7WA preamp valves and we also have these available if you prefer them.

What Tone King say about this amp:

“From a spanky blackface-style voice to ‘50s-era tweed grit, you’ll find all of the most iconic American tube tones residing in this 1 x 12”, 20-watt combo. And with modern appointments, such as an onboard Ironman II power attenuator, and tube-driven effects, the Imperial MKII is the perfect old-school platform for modern players.
