1962 SUPRO Supreme 1600R amp runs 6973 same near identical to the 1624T , this example is VERY RARE and a killer sounding amp! ....SOLD OUT|
SOLD OUT we are very proud to present to you a wonderful classic early 1962 ROCK amp with a great history the Valco made Supro Model 1600R "Supreme" electric guitar amplifier. This particular example is in excellent cosmetic condition, and was made to be the companion to the much more common Supro "Reverberation" separate reverb/amp unit with an identically facia aesthetic, aside from the smaller control panel situated near the left side of the handle on the top. In fact, this amp is incredibly rare,with a center located output access to the optional Supro Reverb unit when wanted and for every 100 Reverberation units built, only 1 1600R was made. Interestingly enough, this rare amp shares a schematic and tube lay-out nearly identical to that of a 1624T, which is widely considered to be one of the best-sounding Supro amp designs ever made. Whether you're looking for an amazing-sounding Jimmy Page-style Supro amp, or an über rare Valco-made specimen, this is certainly a very cool amp to seriously consider, so
Speaker Date Code:(Jensen, early '62)
This amp Tube compliment like the 1624 is : (1) 5Y3 rectifier tube, (2) 6973 power tubes, and (2) 12AX7 preamp tubes through a 1 x 10" Jensen C10R Special Design speaker. The power tubes are US and look to be original, (1) pre-amp tube, though the amp still retains the original Philco rectifier and one RCA pre-amp tube.
The cosmetic condition of this amp is quite impressive, with no evidence of significant flaws or damage. There is really nothing to mention other than the white tube stripes having faded to a creamy brown color, although both of which are still very structurally intact and nice. The grill cloth is in perfect structural condition with a warm patina, and the tolex is in correspondingly excellent shape and patina.
Of course this amp sounds incredible. It produces fantastic overdriven crunch which seems to compliment any guitar. This particular amp sounds great with both a Tele and a Les Paul. The original speaker (with original cone) is in perfect structural condition and does not seem to exhibit any signs of fatigue.This is the one to own folks.... I love its crunch when cranked and man does this amp take pedals well tooooooo much fun.
