The Supro Jupiter is a modern masterpiece. This top-of-the-line Supro amp is intended for the performing guitarist who needs a vintage sounding amp that gracefully handles the output from a complex pedal rig. The Jupiter amplifier excels at rock, funk, fusion, jazz and electronic music genres, providing the necessary headroom punch and stage volume without sacrificing the fundamental dynamics and tonal characteristics that have made Supro amps famous.  

The Supro Jamesport is a 21st-century update of the Supro electric solid body guitar.  The elegant comfort of the 1960’s era beveled edge Ozark body shape and the mighty sound of the original field-coil pickup have been enhanced with an ultra fast satin neck, Tune-o-matic bridge and updated wave tailpiece.  The result is a modern player’s instrument with old school style and authentic Supro tone!

Supro USA Pedals Are Here!!

In 2013, Absara Audio purchased the rights to the Supro brand name from infamous Fender amp designer, Bruce Zinky. In collaboration with Zinky, their Pigtronix design team created a line of Supro 1964 reissue tube amplifiers which first debuted at the 2014 NAMM show. The legacy of Supro amplifiers stretches back to the 1930’s and reaches its original peak in the mid 60’s with the Blue Rhino hide models that inspired our reissues.

Supro’s origins date to the pre-electric guitar days and the formation of the National Resophonic guitar company around 1926, with roots in the resonator guitars that became a blues tone standard prior to amplification. National and Dobro merged in the early ‘30s to form Valco, and Supro. Soon, Valco-made Supro amps were tearing it up on Chicago’s south-side scene, established a tone that has been synonymous with gritty blues ever since. By the mid 60’s, Jimi Hendrix was playing a Supro Thunderbolt amp on tour with Little Richard and the Isley Brothers. A few years later, Jimmy Page, inspired by the raw tones of the Chicago blues scene, cut seminal Led Zeppelin tracks on a Supro Model 24…and so the chain of influences goes, full circle from Chicago blues, to London blues-rock, with Supro the hip tone to beat.
