Supro Statesman 1x12 Combo: Where Vintage Meets Modern

Experience the Ultimate Blend of Classic Supro Tone and Modern Functionality

The Supro 1699R Statesman is not your average amplifier; it's a powerhouse of vintage Supro sound infused with modern features. Boasting two distinct all-tube preamps that can be independently selected or used in parallel, this 50W amp is designed for ultimate versatility. The Red channel, inspired by the legendary Supro Thunderbolt, offers high-headroom rock & roll power with its two-knob Volume and Tone preamp. On the other hand, the Blue channel delivers high-gain goodness, featuring a 2-band EQ and an all-tube reverb section reminiscent of the award-winning Comet model. When used together, these preamps create a tonal masterpiece, making the Statesman one of the most versatile Supro amps ever built.

Powerful Tube-Driven Reverb and Effects Loop

The Blue channel is where the magic happens, housing a tube-driven spring reverb that adds depth and character to your sound. What sets it apart is its placement post-EQ, allowing you to sculpt the reverb's tone precisely to your liking. Additionally, the Statesman features an all-tube, switchable effects loop that enhances your pedalboard's capabilities. You can create wet-only reverb effects, boost levels, or use it as a master volume for the Blue channel when you need those bedroom-friendly tones. The effects loop also offers spill-over functionality, allowing reverb and delay trails to decay naturally when switching channels.

Advanced Effects Loop for Unparalleled Control

The effects loop on the Statesman is no ordinary loop; it offers a range of advanced features. You get a tube-driven send gain control and return gain control, as well as a loop engage toggle and a footswitch jack for remote activation. You can connect your pedals, adjust send and return levels, and even use the loop as a footswitchable boost for a third channel. When no pedals are connected, the loop acts as a boost by attenuating the send level. The send level controls the tube stage saturation, offering versatile overdrive possibilities. Whether you need a clean boost, overdriven tones, or unique blending of signals, the Statesman's effects loop is your secret weapon.
