Tone King Falcon Grande Guitar Combo Amplifier (20 Watts, 1x12")

Vintage vibe meets modern versatility. This amp can get tweed-era to blackface-era tones while keeping the volume down with the onboard attenuator.
The Falcon Grande 20-watt, 1x12" combo sings with the voice of a vintage American tube amp... 3 of them, actually. Even with its straight-forward tone stack -- consisting of an interactive volume and single tone control -- there is a surprising amount of flexibility hiding in this amp. The front panel's 3-position voicing switch offers the clear and spanky Rhythm setting, a warm and compressed Tweed option, and a Lead tone that brings on a singing overdrive. Add in the lush reverb and onboard Ironman II reactive load power attenuator, and you have a rootsy-sounding tube amp that is as ready for the arena as it is the living room.

Three voices from one easy-to-use amp

The Falcon Grande utilizes three knobs to take you on a journey through the best parts of vintage American tube amplification. The volume control and tone knob are highly interactive. With the 3-position voicing switch, you just may have all the tones you'll ever need.

Ironman II reactive attenuation

As if the Falcon Grande wasn't flexible enough, Tone King graciously included their Ironman II power attenuator. Now you can bring your Falcon Grande's maxed power tones to band- or home-friendly level.

This amp has the best tone I've ever heard naturally from an amp, except for the Fender Vibro-King. I had a Vibro-king and Super Reverb. The problem with those amps is that you have to be at 7 before the cool break up occurs. They are too loud for most venues. And, they both are more weighty than the Tone King. The Falcon is 20 watts, but has better headroom than you'd expect. The amp is fat in tone and is versatile for all genres. I got rid of my Super Reverb and haven't regretted it once. Not to mention, but the amp has a really cool retro look that has people coming up to check it out every time out. I recommend this amp to anyone
