OVERVIEW

Amazing vintage, high-gain sound you can use anywhere.

The Supro 1610 Comet is a high-gain, low-wattage 1x10 combo with reverb, tremolo and switchable power. Designed to act as a go-anywhere companion to your favorite guitars, this lightweight tube amp cranks out 6-Watts or 14-Watts of screaming hot vintage tone with an on-board option to drench your sound in tube-driven reverb and tremolo. The Comet is your desert-island tube amplifier.

The preamp found in the Comet delivers warm, blooming clean tones up until 12-o-clock on the volume knob. Past noon, the Comet’s voice rolls over into Supro crunch, giving way to a singing, violin-like overdrive at full volume. The Comet is remarkably high-gain for a vintage flavored amp and it nails that sweet-spot without being too loud for comfort.

The Comet’s vintage correct tremolo effect occurs in the preamp, before the reverb. This 12AX7-based tremolo circuit allows for wider overall speed range and a deeper effect as compared to Supro's louder models, where the tremolo happens in the power tubes, after the reverb.

The power-amp found in the Comet uses a single 6L6 tube with switchable plate voltage to achieve studio and practice friendly 6 Watts or a more robust 14 Watts for stage use. The overdrive that occurs within the Comet’s “single-ended,” Class-A output stage is rich in even-order harmonics and soaked in tube compression. True to the legacy of the original, microphone-friendly Supro combos, the Comet’s exceptional dynamics and ultra-low noise performance make it an ideal recording amp.

The Comet is dressed in 1959 Supro cosmetics, with Black Rhino Hide tolex, black piping, white welting and a gold faceplate. Similar in construction to the award-winning Black Magick and Supreme amplifier models, there is no beam blocker in front of the Comet’s custom-made CR10 speaker, facilitating maximum throw and crystal-clear treble response from this compact all-tube masterpiece.

A matching 1700 BD12-loaded, 1x12 extension cabinet can also be hooked up to the Comet, bringing the overall speaker impedance load down to 4-ohms to deliver maximum punch and additional stage volume for gigs. The 1610 Comet, and the entire line of Supro amps is hand-assembled in by Absara Audio in Port Jefferson, NY, USA.

Comments about Supro 1610RT Comet 6/14W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I'm glad I decided to bite the bullet and buy a Comet, The amp is amazing, small form factor yet when on 14 watts it can shake the walls in my house. The 6 watt setting is perfect for quiet practice and you the overdrive does start after 12 o'clock on the volume dial. It has by far the best tremolo and vibrato I have ever heard out of an amp and I have had them all in my 40+ years of playing guitar. I'm a blues player and with both a Gretsch with SD '59 pickups and a Strat with Vintage Noiseless pickups this amp sings a nice deep bluesy growl without a pedal or effect, its a keeper.
