Description & Specs

There is nothing quite like the sounds of a cranked-up blackface or tweed-era guitar amplifier; but getting those tones at reduced volume levels has been increasingly difficult — until now. Introducing the Tone King Gremlin 5-watt all-tube head. Whether you’re picking at home or keeping up with a drummer, the Gremlin dishes out enough vintage-vibe to inspire. The amp’s two inputs and simple control layout make finding your tone an intuitive process. Plug into the Rhythm channel for a more blackface tone with bell-like highs and increased headroom. Or maybe the Lead input’s tweed-style drive is more your flavor. Thanks to the built-in Ironman II power attenuator, you’re able to enjoy the saturated tone of a maxed-out power tube at a level that won’t wake the neighbors. If you’re drawn to the American side of cranked vintage amps, your tone is in the Gremlin.

VINTAGE U.S. AMP TONES.
The variety of tones you’ll get from this unassuming tube amp is brilliant. Whether you prefer cleaner tones as a pedal platform, or live for pushing your amp into sweet-sounding overdrive, the Gremlin’s got it. Plug in any standard A/B/Y footswitch and make both channels yours on-demand.

ONBOARD IRONMAN II ATTENUATOR.
Even at 5-watts, the Gremlin is powerful and enough to keep up with most drummers. The onboard Ironman reactive load power attenuator delivers that same sweet tube drive at bedroom levels. Experience the genuine tone you crave, at any volume you choose.

ALL TUBES, ALL VINTAGE.
For the Gremlin Head, Tone King has selected two 12AX7 preamp tubes and a 5881 power tube. The 5881 tube provides greater headroom, making it better suited to match with YOUR cabinet. Connect this head to a 4×12 cab and hear just how BIG this little Gremlin sounds.

BUILT FOR TONE, BUILT TO LAST.
From the tolex to the wiring, every Tone King amplifier is constructed with a passion for tone and reliability, right here in the US. We use only premium baltic birch in the construction of our cabinets and amp shells. And every amp is meticulously hand-wired to deliver top-notch tone every time you plug in.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
