3 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!

  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

  • Comments from customers who bought this item:

This 24-Watt, 1×12 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. 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.

Speakers

In an effort to recreate the musical glory of the original Supro amplifiers, we have 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 end.

Supro History

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. Apparently Page put a 12" speaker baffle on his '62 1690T Coronado, effectively turning it into a 1624T.

Throughout the 60's the 6973-powered 1×12 Dual-Tone remained consistent within the Supro lineup, while the 2×10 Coronado was eventually outfitted with the more powerful 6L6 output stage found in the Thunderbolt. This change makes sense from a tonal perspective; the 24 Watts produced by the 6973 power tubes is ideally suited to driving a single 12" speaker, while the 35 Watts dual-6L6 configuration provides more heft to push the two 10" drivers in the Coronado.

The moral of this story is that plugging a Telecaster into the Supro 1624T Dual-Tone reissue is absolutely the fastest and most authentic path to achieving the epic tone from the first two Led Zeppelin records.
