The legendary Thunderbolt. Two knobs and the truth! How sweet it is.
Post some pic if you can. Would LOVE to see them vintage beauties.I love the old Valco/Supro amps. I have three. A 1964 Airline with the Supro 1624T circuit, a 1964 Airline with the Supro 1616T circuit and a Valclone with the late 50's 1624T circuit. All of them sound exceptional. I've never tried the reissues.
Yeah, it's definitely a looker, which honestly was why I was drawn to it in the first place. But it also sounds very cool, the reverb is really out of this world. It's about 30w at best and not very efficient, which suits me fine. It really shines with my 335 at the edge of breakup.That's five steps beyond cool! Very impressive. Excuse my drool.
Yea, saw it and left a response.
The new SUPRO Black Magick with reverb and master volume looks to be one hell-of-an-amp. I have the combo that was released several years back and can say the tone is killer.I owned a Dual Tone and loved it. Easy to get Zeppelin tones, a great speaker, one of the best tremolos that I’ve heard other than a brown face Fender. The Supro is only gone, because it was included in a trade/purchased for a BF Fender amp.
Would love to try the new Black Majik with a Master and Reverb.
Maybe a future purchase.
I'd love to get a Valclone 1624T some day...... if only they were still being madeI had my 64 Airline with a 1624T circuit gone thru by Eric at Dirty Girl and it sounds great! I Haven't tried a Dirty Girl amp but, it must sound as good or better than mine. He does great work. Another good one is Valclone. I have a 1624T from them that's just awesome!
What a sweet looking amp. A spectacular piece of history! Thanks for posting.No longer mine, sadly - a bone stock down to the original replacement fuse stapled to the inside of the cabinet 1965 Supro S6416T 'Trojan Tremolo' in Trinidad Blue' covering with the 6x11 Rola speaker. This amp was the inspiration for the C-Bread Valcoder.
I have a dirty girl amplification “best of” 1624t. It’s called “best of” because it can run either the late 50’s 6v6’s or the 60’s with the 6973’s. It came with a vintage Rola 12” speaker, that I promptly blew. I have a 76’ Celestion black back in there now, with the 55hz cone, and it sounds really good.Has anyone tried a Dirty Girl Amp?
A handwired Supro (clone?). Looks pretty cool and about the same price as a new RI Supro.
