The legacy of Supro amplifiers stretches back to the 1930s and reaches its original peak in the mid 60s with the Blue Rhino hide models that inspired their reissues. While guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix, Link Wray, David Bowie and Dan Auerbach used Supro amps and guitars, no musician is more closely associated with the Supro brand than Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin. It is well known that in 1968, Page used a Tele plugged into a customized 1×12 Supro combo amp to record all of the guitar parts on Led Zeppelin’s debut album.
Every element of the Supro reissue amps has been designed from the ground up to bring this long-lost, holy-grail amp to musicians at a working player’s price. The Blue Rhino Hide tolex was specially made, the cabinetry is vintage-correct, the USA-made speakers are totally unique, the transformers are custom and the sound is 100% authentic Supro. Supro reissue amps are hand-assembled in Port Jefferson, NY, USA.
