Tone King / Metropolitan / 2012 / Brown/Cream / Amp
The Metropolitan is a truly magical guitar amplifier with a sound all its own. The lightweight, resonant speaker cabinet is tuned and voiced as if it were a musical instrument unto itself, producing the perfect balance of warm, woody resonance and elastic feel, as well as power and punch. The ultra-pure signal path and automatically balanced and calibrated phase inverter give you an unusually effortless sustain, even on perfectly clean notes, and a bell-like clarity.
The Metropolitan has two distinct preamp channels - the Rhythm Channel and the Lead Channel. You can select between the two with either the front panel channel switch or the footswitch.
Input Gain Switch
The input gain switch controls the gain of the 1st stage of both preamps. This switch helps to tailor the overall gain of the amp to match the gain of the amp to the output level of your guitar's pickups.
The Rhythm channel includes a 2-position "bright" switch as well as Volume, Treble, and Bass controls.
The Lead Channel includes Volume, Tone, and Mid-Bite controls.
The Metropolitan's all new single-knob reverb circuit has been meticulously tuned to be the best sounding reverb circuit of all Tone King models. The reverb control on the front panel sets the reverb level for both preamp channels. In addition, the reverb may be turned on and off with the footswitch.
Output Power Controls
Two output power controls are included on the front panel - one for each preamp channel. They allow adjustment of the output power from 0.1W to 40W, continuously. Having separate power controls for each channel allows you to set the amp for a clean tone with lots of headroom on the Rhythm channel, and an overdriven tone on the Lead channel, while matching the volume level when you switch between channels.
