The Supro Blues King 12 combo amplifier captures the vintage Supro amp tone
The “single-ended” Class-A tube power amp found in the Blues King provides the raw tonal characteristics and remarkable touch sensitivity of these mid-century combos, while delivering a full 15 watts of 6L6 tube power. MAP price of $599 USD.
Front-end gain in the Blues King is supplied by a 12AX7 tube preamp and a FET-driven, fat boost function. In addition, the amp’s high-gain mode uses a series of cascaded FETs to achieve face-melting levels of distortion and sustain. 3-band EQ and Master Volume controls join the footswitchable boost and gain functions to provide multiple layers of stackable overdrive for gigging, recording and home practice.
