Supro announce three new tube amplifiers

US amp manufacturer Supro have announced three new-all tube amp combos. 

The Supro Titan, a 50 watt 1x10 combo with reverb and tremolo, the Jupiter 1x12 combo with three position rectifier, and Rhythm Master a 1x15 combo with reverb and tremolo, have all joined their ever-growing stable of classic valve amp designs.

 

Titan (1642RT)


The Supro Titan (£1229) is a 50 Watt, 1x10" tube combo that features the Class-A Supro sound. Intended for the gigging guitarist who needs a small size, yet high-power, the Titan is a vintage flavored amp tube that can handle the output from a massive pedal board full of fuzz, delay and other stomp-boxes, without the need for an effects loop. 

Combining the traditional, cathode-biased, 6L6 power section found in the high power Supro amps of the 60’s with the cabinet dimensions of Supro's award-winning Tremo-Verb model (with HP10 driver), the Titan delivers unrivaled definition and projection in a remarkably compact, gig friendly package. Never sterile or clinical sounding, the Titan has a huge, warm, full bodied sound with enough volume to play any size venue. 

Tube driven six-spring reverb and output tube tremolo add depth and dimension to the Titan’s glorious sound. As with all Supro reverb amps, the tremolo is found after the reverb, creating a haunting, vintage-correct modulated reverb effect that is unique to the Supro range.

Supro Jupiter (1668RT)


The Supro Jupiter (£1329) is a top-of-the-line amp intended for the performing guitarist who needs a vintage sound that handles the output from a complex pedal rig. The Jupiter amplifier offers headroom punch and stage volume without sacrificing the fundamental dynamics and tonal characteristics that have made Supro amps famous.

The Jupiter model features Supro’s unique switchable rectifier topology, allowing musicians to select 35-Watts (Class A) or 45 / 60 watts (Class AB) to suit the gig at hand. The 35 watt cathode bias mode uses the legendary Thunderbolt power amp topology for a harmonically saturated, tube-rectified sound that combines wonderfully with this 1x12” platform. The 45 and 60 watt grid bias modes provide more volume and headroom as well as the faster transient response associated with Class AB power amps.

The switchable power amp topology of the Jupiter not only allows for players to change the texture and output volume of the amp but it also provides two very different, all-tube tremolo effects depending on whether Class A (cathode bias) or Class AB (grid bias) mode is selected. The cathode bias tremolo is vintage Valco/Supro all the way, where the overall depth of the effect changes along with the dynamics of your playing. The grid bias tremolo is gives a much deeper, stronger and more pronounced throbbing effect. Since the tremolo is performed by modulating the bias of the output tubes, the reverb necessarily comes before the tremolo effect, for a mesmerizing combination of pure tube reverb and tremolo when both effects are combined.

Supro Rhythm Master (1675RT)


The 1675RT Rhythm Master offers the huge, bold sound of the 1x15” Thunderbolt amp, but need a lush, all-tube reverb to fill out their sound.  Rooted in Supro tradition, this vintage inspired model is loaded with independent bass and treble controls, six-spring long pan reverb, output tube tremolo and switchable Class A / Class AB power amp wiring for 35, 45 or 60 watts of vintage American tone. 

The Rhythm Master’s USA made custom 15” driver is the most accurate and true sounding 15” guitar speaker on the market, with a full, broadband sound that is never muddy. To create this signature speaker, Supro worked with Eminence to combine the best elements of classic 15” speakers with modern construction methods and materials to achieve a vintage voiced driver with superior power handling and juicy bottom end. 

The unique power amp topology of the Rhythm Master not only allows for players to change the texture and output volume of the amp but it also provides two very different, all-tube tremolo effects depending on whether Class A (cathode bias) or Class AB (grid bias) mode is selected. The cathode bias tremolo is vintage Valco/Supro all the way, where the overall depth of the effect changes along with the dynamics of your playing. The grid bias tremolo is gives a much deeper, stronger and more pronounced throbbing effect. Since the tremolo is performed by modulating the bias of the output tubes, the reverb necessarily comes before the tremolo effect,   for a mesmerizing combination of pure tube reverb and tremolo when both effects are combined.
