The compact and club friendly 1624T Dual-Tone delivers a raucous 24 watts via a matched pair of 6973 power tubes and a custom designed 12" Supro DT12 speaker.

The “Dual-Tone” 1x12" combo amplifier is the undeniable rock star of the mid 60’s Supro amplifier lineup. Vintage 1624T amps have been sought-after for decades because they embody the most desirable aspects of the Supro sound. As the Dual-Tone’s volume knob is turned beyond noon, a fat and compressed clean tone evolves into an immediately recognizable grind that remains articulate and listenable even when turned up to full blast.

This 24-Watt, 1x12" tube combo can easily be driven to glorious saturation at a manageable gigging volume while retaining exceptional clarity and bandwidth, at any level of gain. This amp’s unique mojo is largely defined by the use of 6973 power tubes in the amplifier’s output stage. These robust 9-pin tubes were employed extensively in the mid- and low-power Supro amps made 50 years ago. 6973 tubes look like EL84s but they deliver a distinctly American voice that has been missing from the world of tube amplifiers for far too long.

The Dual-Tone’s linkable channels each sport volume and tone controls as well as a shared tremolo circuit. Plugging into IN 1+2 links both preamp channels in parallel for double the input signal and double the gain. This clever topology lets you hit the power amp as hard as necessary and even allows “channel switching” in its purest form, using a simple A/B switch.

The 1964 reissue Supro Dual-Tone’s vintage-correct, lightweight cabinet—combined with our breathtaking custom 12" Supro speaker—kicks out surprisingly plump low end with all the detailed midrange and high end articulation that defines the Supro tone players have been chasing for decades. In an effort to recreate the musical glory of the original Supro amplifiers, Supro has partnered with Eminence to bring you a series of USA-made speakers unlike anything else available today. Using a recipe that includes a specially wound voice coil, ceramic magnet and lightweight stiff paper cone, the custom speakers found in Supro amplifiers deliver vintage American tone, with far more power handling, superior efficiency and nice firm bottom.

Loud enough to gig with a band, yet easy to haul around town, the Supro Dual-Tone is the perfect small club and recording amplifier. This amp has the long lost tone, so Ramble On down to a Supro dealer near you and Bring It on Home.

For years folks have claimed that the Supro 1624T is the “Page” amp, and for all intents and purposes, it is. The actual amp used by Jimmy Page to record the first two Led Zeppelin albums as well as the solo for Stairway to Heaven from Led Zeppelin IV,  was actually a modified 1962 Supro 1690T Coronado. In the early sixties, the Supro 1624T and 1690T both shared the same 6973-based power section. The understanding is that Page put a 12” speaker baffle on his ’62 1690T Coronado, effectively turning it into a 1624T.
