This 15-Watt, Class-A 1x12 luxury combo is powered by a pair of 6973 tubes with a 5U4 tube rectifier—giving you the ultimate in tactile response and signature Supro breakup at manageable gigging volume.
The Saturn Reverb’s amazingly low noise floor makes this amp perfect for players who prefer to crank the amp and use the guitar’s volume knob to control texture and dynamics. Independent TREBLE and BASS controls allow the musician to fine tune the frequency response of the preamp to accommodate a wide range of pickups and varied stage environments.
The Saturn Reverb’s blue rhino hide tolex, vintage-correct cabinetry and fundamental circuit topology are all drawn from the original Supro Reverb combos of the mid 60’s. Like its ancestors, the new Saturn Reverb’s power-tube tremolo comes after the reverb pan, lending an ethereal shake and wobble to the enveloping wash of tube-driven spring reverb.
The Supro Royal Reverb’s four-spring, 17” long reverb pan and all-tube reverb drive and recovery stages provide warm and smooth ‘verb that “surrounds the note” without getting in the way, even when the amplifier is cranked all the way up for maximum grind.
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 an edge-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.

You have to hear this amp! The Saturn in not a reissue of a old Supro design but is a modern amp with vintage flavor. The Saturn uses the 6973 tubes to provide a sound that has not been available in a new production amp in over 50 years! If your into classic rock, blues and madness this amp is for you! The cleans are fantastic and the overdrive is harmonically rich and ill-tempered. Even though the amp is rated at 15 watts the amp has plenty of power to handle both studio and small venue live band situations. The amp is nice and lightweight and easy to carry around. The controls are really simple with volume, bass and treble controls for one input and a sublime sounding tube driven tremolo and reverb.Best of all this high quality tube amp is made right here in the USA on Long Island, NY. Unlike many boutique amps that are out of reach for many working musicians or hobbyists the entire Supro line remains ultra affordable and does not compromise on quality. This is a must try and a must buy!
