Sweet American overdrive
You can't beat the sound of natural overdrive. And, with the Blues King 8, finding the amp's sweet spot has never been easier. Hosting 1 Watt of power, players can push the Blues King 8 to its limits, without having to play at deafening volumes. Its small headroom means you can dial in the exact amount of crunch and grit that you need, even when practising at home or in quieter environments.
It's this small headroom that makes the Blues King 8 the perfect studio amplifier. By driving the 12AU7 triode power amp, a naturally rich crunch can be recorded without distorting the microphone levels. So, whether you're a blues player, rock 'n' roll, or even punk – the Blues King 8 provides a sound that guarantees to impress guitarists of all styles. Sweet 50s American tone, more accessible than ever before.
Define your sound, without the hassle. The Blues King 8 takes tone-shaping back to its 50s roots. Featuring volume, tone, and a master control – shaping your guitar's voice is simple. Push the volume for more crunch, or dial it back for those smooth sparkling cleans. Combined with the master volume knob, adjusting your amp's headroom is smoother and more precise than many amplifiers on the market. Then there's tone. Roll on the bass frequencies or bring out those searing highs. You're in control.
For even more power, a boost function has been implemented to adjust the gain even further. So, if you really want to fuel your tone with more dynamism, all it takes is a simple flick of the switch. This function is also footswichable, meaning you can manage your guitar sound on stage in effortless fashion.
Designed from the ground up
It's the soul of mid-century Chicago amps that helped influence the British invasion of the '60s. The Supro brand is synonymous with that tone, inspiring artists like Albert Lee, Jimmy Page, Pete Townshend, and Peter Green - these amps earned their reputation and pushed the sound of the 'Electric Era'. Being designed (like all Supro amps) from the ground up, Supro were able to push what is normally expected from a classic.
The master volume can be used to push the power section of the amp. Alongside the boost switching option, the Blues King isn't a one-trick pony, with plenty of ways to change how the amp breaks up, this is an amp that will never hold you back.
