OVERVIEW

Two knobs are all you need to dial in amazing tone.

Two knobs and the truth: The legendary 1964 “Blue Rhino Hide” Supro Thunderbolt is back. Renowned for its bold, full-range sound and up-front, honest midrange, the Thunderbolt covers a remarkable spectrum of vintage tone while wringing every ounce of personality from whatever guitar is plugged in.

From clean jazz to Tele twang, soapbar blues to humbucker grind, the Thunderbolt dishes out 35 Watts of “Class A” tube tone from its vintage Supro dual 6L6 power plant. True to the ‘64 version of the Thunderbolt, a 5U4 rectifier tube is employed to deliver that unmistakable high-powered vintage sag. Normal and extra-hot input options, combined with a wide range of available gain on tap, allow you to fine-tune the texture and response of this amp’s massive sound. Turned all the way up, the Thunderbolt exhibits nearly zero self-noise; yet it puts out enough volume to be easily heard on large venue and theatre stages, with overdrive completely controlled by the guitar’s volume knob.

Massive custom transformers and lightweight, vintage-correct cabinetry—combined with the best-sounding 15” guitar speaker money can buy—put the Thunderbolt in a class of its own. With the amp turned all the way up, chords ring with exceptional clarity and definition, amidst copious amounts of tube overdrive and output-stage saturation. Available once again in all its bonafide Supro glory, the Thunderbolt returns in style.

    Comments about Supro S6420 Thunderbolt 35W 1x15 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    The amp isn't too heavy to lug from place to place so that's great. Has a lot of bottom end and great break up in just the right place. Takes pedals very well. Even when grunged up a little every note still rings true. Very articulate yet smooth. I own Mesa's and high end Fender's and this amp can certainly keep up. Beautiful construction and good over all quality.

        Comments about Supro S6420 Thunderbolt 35W 1x15 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

        Never got around to writing a review for this amp - had it for about six months or so. Great tone and simple to use. It just goes to show that you don't require a lot of knobs and switches to achieve that stellar tone. Humbuckers, mini-humbuckers, P-90s, and single-coil (Fender telecaster) pickups all sound superb through this amp. The 15 inch speaker is articulate and clear, even when driven to tube-saturation glory. I was and remain very impressed. Glad Supro resurrected it.

        I also own the 1624T Dual-Tone, 1650RT Royal Reverb, and 1695T Black Magick). Love their products - nice to see an American company delivering a top notch quality product.
