Vintage 1966 Supro 1688TA 2×12″ combo


35 watts from a pair of 6L6 output tubes, 2×12″ Jensens, 2 channels, technically a “bass amp” in the same way as a Fender Bassman is, with tough speakers and big transformers to handle a P or J, but these, like the Bassman, really come into their own with a 6-string. Also great for accordion and even has a dedicated input for that, but the old squeezeboxes aren’t as common as they used to be, more’s the pity. Great ’60s look with its grey tolex, raw, powerful ’60s tone complete with footswitchable tube tremolo, reasonably light for a big amp, and electronically and mechanically sound. Made in Chicago by Valco.
