Supro S6420 Thunderbolt 35-watt 1 x 15" Tube Combo
Eine Legende ist zurück. Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix etc. - die Liste der Gitarristen, die den Supro Amp für legendäre Aufnahmen benutzt haben, liest sich wie das who is who der Rockgeschichte. Nun gibt diese Amps wieder als Reissue.
Just in time for its 50th anniversary, Supro has reissued the S6420
Thunderbolt tube guitar amplifier. Like the Fender Bassman, the
Thunderbolt was originally intended to be a bass amplifier. While far
from a stellar bass amp, the Thunderbolt quickly became a holy grail
tone device for electric guitar players. Indeed, the first time you
crank up this Thunderbolt reissue, you'll be treated to a huge, raw,
overdriven, rock 'n' roll tone cascading from a custom designed 15"
Supro TB15 speaker. Simplistic, sporting only a tone and volume control,
the Supro S6420 Thunderbolt tube guitar amplifier's cathode-biased 6L6
output section produces 35 watts of pure rock 'n' roll power.
S6420 Thunderbolt Two knobs and the TRUTH: The legendary 1964 ?Blue Rhino Hide? Supro Thunderbolt is back. Renowned for its bold, full-range sound and up-front, honest midrange, the Thunderbolt covers a remarkable spectrum of vintage tone while wringing every ounce of personality from whatever guitar is plugged in. From clean jazz to Tele twang, soapbar blues to humbucker grind, the Thunderbolt dishes out 35 Watts of ?Class A? tube tone from its vintage Supro dual 6L6 power plant. True to the ?64 version of the Thunderbolt, a 5U4 rectifier tube is employed to deliver that unmistakable high-powered vintage sag. Normal and Extra hot input options, combined with a wide range of available gain on tap, allow you to fine-tune the texture and response of this amp?s massive sound. Turned all the way up, the Thunderbolt exhibits nearly zero self-noise; yet it puts out enough volume to be easily heard on large venue and theatre stages, with overdrive completely controlled by the guitar?s volume knob.
Massive custom transformers and lightweight, vintage-correct cabinetry?combined with the best-sounding 15? guitar speaker money can buy?put the Thunderbolt in a class of its own. With the amp turned all the way up, chords ring with exceptional clarity and definition, amidst copious amounts of tube overdrive and output-stage saturation. Available once again in all its bonafide Supro glory, the Thunderbolt returns in style.

Supro - a brief history
Supro's roots can be traced back to the 1930s, when the National Resophonic and Dobro guitar companies merged to form a manufacturing entity called Valco. Valco manufactured Spanish acoustic guitars, metal-faced resonator guitars, and electric lap steel guitars under a variety of brand names, including Airline, Oahu, and National. They also designed amplifiers for several other companies such as Gretsch, Harmony, and Kay. It was during this time that Valco also began producing guitars and amplifiers under the Supro name. Extremely popular amongst Southside Chicago blues musicians in the 1960s, Supro amplifiers proved equally popular with the British musicians who were influenced by them. By the late 1960s, notable guitarists ranging from Jimi Hendrix to Albert Lee to Jimmy Page were seen playing Supro amplifiers. Original Supro amps often sell for premium prices on the used market, because of their legendary unique tone.The Supro Thunderbolt - a historic mistake, a modern miracle
Once upon a time, a certain manufacturer created one of the worst-sounding bass amps ever produced. It was underpowered, distorted like crazy, and the speaker's baffle board couldn't handle low frequencies, so it fluttered around in a disruptive fashion. The manufacturer continuously tried to market the amp to bass players, but they all turned up their noses. All seemed lost. Then one day, an adventurous lad plugged an electric guitar into the amp, turned it all the way up, and experienced the most amazing, raw tube distortion they had ever heard. It sounded positively huge! Before you knew it, guitarists from all over the land wanted to experience this epic, raw, overdriven, tooth-rattling sound for themselves. A promising young guitarist named Jimi was even spotted playing through one while he was on tour with Little Richard and the Isley Brothers. The rest, as they say, is history!The Supro S6420 Thunderbolt Combo Guitar Amplifier Features:
