    Just wanted to share this. The Supro Statesman combo is the best amp I’ve ever had (and boy, I’ve had tons of amps). Anybody else here who use the Statesman?

    For reference: I play different shades of rock music, and occasionally a little country. I use a ‘69 SG Custom, an ES-335 with Low wound Lollar Imperials, and a Baja Tele. This amp make them all shine.

    For further reference: I’ve had Hiwatts, Orange, Mesa, Fender, Ampegs, Marshalls. Never loved an amp like I love the Statesman combo.

    I have the head and the 2x12" speaker cabs. Best stuff on the market. Looooove the tone. Here's my thread...

    You will not go wrong either way. Both are incredible amps/speakers. ;)

    That's quite the sales promotion Sweetwater is offering and hard to pass. Incredible deal.
