The Tone King Metropolitan is the latest creation to find its way out of master amp builder, Mark Bartel's brain and heart. It's immediately obvious when you play through the Tone King Metropolitan, that Mr. Bartel has put some serious years of circuit design, chassis design and woodworking skills inside this marvelous amplifier. This most outstanding feature about these amps is that Mark literally builds the Metropolitan Amps himself, one at a time, in his personal shop in Baltimore, MD. From start to finish this amp is all Mark and he stands proud, as he should, behind his skills as a top notch master amplifier builder.

The Rhythm Channel on the Tone King Metropolitan lands somewhere between the typical "blackface" and "tweed" preamp tone but with a wider range than either of those classic preamps; this allows for a wide variety of tones that can fit into any situation. The Lead Channel features a "Mid-Bite" control that is unique to Tone King Amplifiers. With just a turn of a knob the Mid-Bite can take the Lead Channel anywhere from sweet "tweed" to "chunky" rock crunch and provides tons of tonal space to sculpt your sound. Lastly, this amp features Tone King's Phase-4 circuit which determines the actual power produced by the Metropolitan's power tubes. This allows the Metropolitan to literally run anywhere between .1 watt and the full 40 watts. This feature is labeled as Output Level and is provided for both channels.
