The best sound for pedals
Effects can give your guitar playing limitless potential. A well-stocked pedalboard provides you with an unending amount of sonic possibilities to inject into your music. But for them to be effective, you need an amplifier that communicates their sound with maximum power. Most amplifiers struggle with delivering the tone of some more complex pedals, resulting in an overall sound that just isn't quite right and not how you want it to be heard.
With the 1970RK, you'll never have this problem again. Designed in collaboration with pedal manufacturers Keeley Electronics, it's the ultimate amplifier for making your pedals sound better and more defined than ever before. They've extensively researched the common sonic problems that amps suffer when used with pedalboards. Thanks to this, they've managed to produce an amp that is tailor-made to make any effects chain sound awesome.
The 1970RK has extremely high-input headroom. This means you can use overdrive and boost pedals without the worry of a weak amp being unable to handle their power. As a result, you'll enjoy your effects without unwanted distortion. If you're investing in expensive effects boxes, you have to have an amp that does them justice. This is that amp.
In-built loop, ideal for time-based effects
Use delay and reverb with complete accuracy. The 1970RK has an built-in transparent effects loop, giving you total flexibility as to where you route your effects. Your sound will loop through the amp, and be delivered with hallmark Supro tone. Delay, reverb, and more have never sound so integrated into your overall sound.
Stunning Supro tone
Give your guitar the sound it deserves. The Supro 1970RK Keeley Custom gives you iconic, all-encompassing tone like no other amplifier. A preamp and Supro CR10 speaker give you incredible sonic power. Even in the densest of mixes, your exhilarating guitar playing will be clearly heard with precision and clarity.
You'll have tremendous tonal control. A 2-band EQ for bass and treble frequencies lets you shape how your guitar sounds and tailor the amp's output to your individual style. If you want to play with booming depth, simply ramp up the bass control. Perform bright, sharp solos that are delivered with articulation and definition with the treble turned to the max. Terrific at any pitch.
With all of these features, the 1970RK is already an amazing amp. And that's without mentioning that it comes with the classic Supro tone that's interwoven into the very fibres of rock 'n' roll history. Their amps' amazing mid-range power made them favourites with Little Richard, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Simon and Garfunkel, and many more. This is sound quality heard in the music of some of the industry's very best artists. With the 1970RK, you can enjoy the all-tube, incredibly wide-ranging Supro sound in your own music too.
