        The reincarnation of the Supro brand sounds pretty good. They are great clean amps, and being a pedal fan, are great platforms for my pedals.

                This great looking amp has a fantastic vintage clean tone that is hard to beat. The Thunderbolt has some features that make it stand out among it's competition. For instance: a 3-way rectifier switch option for a choice of 35-Watt (cathode biased) or 45-Watt (grid biased) 5U4 tube rectified modes as well as a high power, 60-Watt (grid biased) solid state rectifier setting. This amp will be loud enough for your practice and your gig needs.

                Comments about Supro Thunderbolt+ 1X15" Combo Amp:

                I have used a ton of amps. Fenders, Voxs, Oranges, Ampegs as well as some newer boutiques like Bogner, 65 Amps, etc.

                For pure cleans and LOUD breakup these amps kill them all.
                This amp has some of the best clean tone available, throw a reverb pedal in there and you will not believe what you are hearing. Its THAT tone you have been searching for. It IS hard to get much breakup at low volume but usually a stomp is best for that anyhow.

                Amp sounds best when at 35 and is wonderful for recording through medium gigs. Sounds is not too compromised as you turn the wattage up and it really can get LOUD!

                This company is doing it right, build quality is insanely nice. Amps designed by legend Bruce Zinky. Real USA Eminence Speakers. The Hi/Lo inputs are very versatile. Plug a humbucker guitar into the Hi and get pretty immediate crunch. Plug a low output single coil in and it fattens/livens it up. You get the idea.

                The 1x15 works great for baritone and humbucker guitars. Works good with a good variety of Singles as well.

                Oh and did I mention it looks GORGEOUS!

                Take a look at the Coronado as well as it sounds unbelievable and is my personal favorite!

                      So glad this company is back in business. These amps are some of the best available for a myriad of styles and sounds. Killer clean tones and crushing natural overdrive, this will do old school rock and blues like nothing else. Love it!!!

                            I have played through older models (or what some of call "the real ones") and these newer models hold up great and sound incredible. 50w tube or can use as solid state. Killer vintage tone

                                  A hot-rodded version of the reissued Thunderbolt, the Supro S6420+ Thunderbolt Plus tube guitar amplifier features a three-way rectifier switch option for more headroom and versatility. 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 the Thunderbolt Plus, you'll be treated to a huge, raw, overdriven, rock 'n' roll tone cascading from a custom designed 15" Supro TB15 speaker. Make no mistake, the Supro S6420+ Thunderbolt Plus tube guitar amplifier produces pure rock 'n' roll power! The S6420+ includes a three-way rectifier switch that adds modern headroom and gigging versatility to the Thunderbolt. With the S6450+, you're given the choice of a 35-watt (cathode-biased) or 45-watt (grid-biased) 5U4 tube rectifier mode, as well as a high power 60-watt (grid-biased) solid state rectifier setting.

                                    This amp has legendary tone. Playing through this amp gives you plenty of options as far as output goes. Each of the three settings sounding just as the next. If you want an amp good for recording, home practice or live performance, this might be the amp you are looking for. The classic tone cant be understated.

                                      This is a great reissue of a somewhat classic amp. I have 2 original 60's original thunderbolts so I'm a bit particular of any reissue. The guys at Supro did a great job of recreating the tone and look of the original. I would highly recommend checking this amp out! I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.
