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.
This amplifier works nicely as intended and is in very good condition, exhibiting only gentle external wear (slight peeling near the control panel, a small ding in the grill cloth) as can be seen in photos. Includes original footswitch, channel selector and cable, manual and IEC cable.
