The Lil' King is the flagship amp from Headstrong, we can certainly see why! We are very exited to be carrying these amps, and are more excited about how amazing they sound. They are also made locally in Asheville, NC. The Lil' King Reverb is a true recreation of a 1964 Princeton reverb, but this one features a 1x12 speaker. The tube reverb and tremolo sound three-dimensional. If you're looking the some of the best blackface tones available, this is the amp for you!
Since its introduction in 2004 the Lil King Reverb has become the go to amp in homes, studios and stages throughout the world. Regularly used by many household names who own and can easily afford multiple vintage models.
It was and still is the world's first replica of the 1964 Princeton Reverb.
We have painstakingly re-created one of the best small gig/rehearsal/recording amps of all time. Whether you are looking for a practice amp or a portable gig amp to take on the go, the Lil King fits the bill. The original came with an inefficient 10" speaker, which we also replicate for the die-hard purist using the Eminence GA10-SC64 20 watt speaker.
Our most popular model is outfitted with a 12" 40 watt Eminence GA-SC64 ceramic speaker. This helps with more direct projection of the sound as well as boosting low end for a more defined bottom end.
Don't let the small size fool you, The Lil King packs big Blackface tone!
