The Lil King-S was Wayne's idea to create an amp that was never made during this era, a single channel 25-30 watt amp but not as bulky or heavy as say a Deluxe or Vibrolux Reverb. The other, to take a stock Lil King and see how far he could push it without changing the "inefficient" Phase Inverter found in the original circuit.  Tonally think louder and tighter Princeton Reverb.  Still not as bright as a typical Blackface style amp in this wattage range, the theory was to create a higher powered version with more headroom and bottom end definition, but when over-driven would retain some of the classic small amp character.  The amp also accepts 6V6 (approx. 20 watts) or EL34 power tubes with a simple re-bias.  If you love the Princeton Reverb sound but wish it was a little louder with better bottom end definition, this may be the amp for you!  What does the "S" stand for...Stage, Souped up, or Lil' King on Steroids...
