Don’t let the diminutive size fool you. The King Baby boasts full-size tube amp tone in small package. It weighs just 6.5 lbs and comes in a portable 11 (W) x 6 (H) x 7.25 (D) cabinet.
The pre-amp, based on the King Daddy, features two 12AX7 gain stages, Volume, Bass, Treble and Middle. Power is provided by a single EL84 pentode.
The 5W output makes it a great practice or recording amp. Hook it up to your favorite cab for big overdriven sound without blowing out your ears. But it’s not just a great low power amp. The King Baby can also function as pre-amp by connecting the Slave Out to the input of another amp, or turn it into a tube overdrive by using it in conjunction with a looper pedal.
We’ve done a couple things to make it play nicely with other gear: when the speaker is unplugged, a dummy load is switched in. This means you can connect the Slave Out to other gear while leaving the King Baby silent. We’ve also included ground loop defeating circuitry to eliminate the potential for hum.
