1964 Supro Thunderbolt 1-15 Vintage Mojo at its best!...SOLD see our other cleaner TB in stock!|
This was an early one for Supro this is the one I always liked best of the line and I feel its much better sounding than the later TB 67-68': h88 Doublet 1964 Supro Thunderbolt, model S6420 Made by Valco in Chicago, USA. This is an absolutely beautiful Supro Thunderbolt tube amp ALL ORIGINAL with original Jensen C15PS speaker just Killer sounding. This is the most desirable early version with 5U4GB tube rectifier for a much smoother response. This is a GREAT ONE!! Some say the best they've ever heard. , I had one of these great amps when I was 20 ( now I'm 55 ) and rockin hard and I really kicked the S! out of it dragging it round jamming etc...it can really take a lot its damn near indestructible! Yes in deed these are great old amps ... this is one of Jimmy Pages Favorites he Played & recorded with Supro's one of the best sounding most cult classic sought after amps of all time...Jimi Hendrix also was know to play a Supro Thunderbolt.. This is the best one of the lot.. THE 1964 Supro Thunderbolt. She's incredible the gutsiest little amp on the planet the one all the Boutique amps try to copy and she's in 100% perfect working order !!! and the only non original thing about it is a needed upgrade of a heavy duty modern new properly installed and grounded 3 pong plug. This example is a classic and has roaring tone and truly is nothing short of "epic" it is very silent, no hum or buzz at all!!!! simplistic in its design its controls are one volume and one tone that controls both treble & bass that's it!. The Original 15inch Jensen is on board and it breaks up so amazingly and has not been reconed , even the tubes are the originals from 1964 and still sounds amazing.
See pics soon to come for cosmetics detail ..very good - excellent vintage condition...
