Supro amps from the late 1950s-60s

What are the good smaller Supro amps from the 1950s and 1960s? I am really wanting to have something like that in my stable for 50s rock 'n' roll, and I can't really afford an actual tweed Fender right now (have looked at repros).

No Supro amp sounds anything like a Fender; Valco-made amps have their own sound, which is more gritty with a strong mid-range. There aren't any particularly sought-after models, though most of the clones I've seen have been '60s push-pull models like the Thunderbolt.

Shameless plug: I have a Supro in the emporium.

Thanks for the info. I am aware that Supros and Fenders do not sound much alike. I should have said that I am just looking for something different to add to my palate. I would absolutely love a Thunderbolt, however, I think I am looking for something small and simple.

Any ideas? Thanks, TGP!
