Vintage Tone, Pedal Friendly

Building on the revival of its guitar tone legacy, Supro USA has released three new combo amplifiers: the 1642RT Titan, 1668RT Jupiter and 1675RT Rhythm Master. All three of these new high-power models are intended for guitarists looking for vintage tone and all-tube reverb, with enough headroom to accommodate effects pedals.

The 1642RT Titan is a compact 1×10″ combo with 50 watts of Class A 6L6 power, all-tube reverb and output-tube tremolo. An all-new HP10 hemp cone speaker handles the power even when the amp is cranked to full power. Street price: $1499 USD

The 1668RT Jupiter is a modern masterpiece. This top-of-the-line 1×12″ Supro (featuring a custom HP12 hemp cone speaker) is intended for the performing guitarist who needs a high power, vintage-sounding amp with reverb that can gracefully handle any pedal-based rig. The manufacturer claims that the Jupiter amplifier excels at rock, funk, fusion, jazz and electronic music genres, providing the necessary headroom punch and stage volume without sacrificing the fundamental dynamics and tonal characteristics that have made Supro amps famous. Street price: $1599 USD

The 1675RT Rhythm Master is made for guitarists who love the bold sound of the 1×15″ Thunderbolt amp, but need a lush, all-tube reverb and tremolo to fill out their sound. Switchable Class A (35 Watts) or Class AB (45 / 60 Watts) power, all-tube reverb and output-tube tremolo make this model Supro USA’s most fully featured 15″ combo amp. Street price: $1599 USD

The entire line of USA-made Supro reissue tube amps is distributed by US Music / KMC.
