Supro Statesman Combo 1 x 12 Tube Amplifier


Supro Statesmean 50W Head Amplifier

The Supro Statesman features two distinct all-tube preamps that can be independently selected or run simultaneously-in parallel-to create a massive, dual-channel sound where each preamp contributes part of the overall sonic texture. Supro is offering the Statesman amp as a 1 x 12 combo or in a visually striking, compact head format accompanied by a matching 2 x 12 Statesman cabinet.

The 1699R Statesman is a two-channel, 50w amplifier that unites vintage Supro tone with modern channel switching functionaity, tube-driven reverb ad a multi-purpose, all-tube effects loop.

The red channel found in the Statesman uses the two-knob preamp from the legendary Supro Thunderbolt amplifier for high-headroom rock & roll power. The Statesman’s blue channel contains the high-gain preamp, 2-band EQ and all-tube reverb section of our acclaimed Comet model. The Statesman provides A/B/Both channel switching operation, allowing the two channels to be run in parallel, creating a massive, dual-preamp sound where each channel contributes part of the overall texture.

In addition to the tube-driven spring reverb, the Statesman’s blue channel contains an all-tube, switchable effects loop that provides a set of useful functions—including “wet only” reverb effects, which can be independently dialed in and blended with the dry sound from the red channel. The variable send and return levels allow the effects loop to function as a level and/or gain boost when engaged, even when nothing is plugged into the loop. The effects loop can also act as a master volume for the blue channel when bedroom levels are desired. As a final touch, both the effects loop and the reverb on the Statesman feature a relay-controlled “spill-over” effect, allowing reverb and delay trails to decay naturally when switching between channels.

Ultimately, if there is no-one to sign for your delivery, you will be left a card by our contract carrier inviting you to collect from the depot or re-arrange delivery.
