The 1622RT Tremo-Verb is a feature-rich update to the coveted late-'60s Supro 1x10 combo platform. This compact, Class-A, 6973-powered bruiser pushes a loud 25 watts through a custom-made 10” speaker to capture the old-school Supro magic in an amp you can easily haul around to gigs. Tremo-verb is, without a doubt, pound-for-pound the most potent tube amp in the Supro line.
The Tremo-verb’s feature set, blue rhino hide tolex and compact physical dimensions are drawn from the original combo of the mid '60s, with its power plant borrowed from its larger brother, the 1624T Dual-Tone. This modern incarnation of the Supro Tremo-verb has been enhanced with enough Class-A power to gig out alongside a pounding drummer and bassist.
Following traditional Supro fashion, the Tremo-verb’s power-tube tremolo comes after the reverb pan, lending an ethereal shake and wobble to the enveloping wash of tube-driven spring reverb. This amp has ample headroom to use with pedals, maintaining exceptional clarity and sparkle even above 12-o’clock on the volume knob as the amp rolls over into glorious all-tube overdrive.

Comments about Supro 1622RT Tremo-Verb 25W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:
I was in the market for a Fender Princeton '65 reissue. I'd never heard of Supro. Guitar store near me had one lying around and I plugged in on a whim. Instantly knew I was looking for a Supro.
This amp has cleans that aren't totally dissimilar to good Fender amps. It doesn't have the glassy, bell-like highs of a Fender, but it's got midrange complexity that I don't find in Fenders. I thought it had more warmth and it made the Princeton sound brittle. With the silicon rectifier rather than tube, I found that it was tighter and had more clean headroom (although if you wanted tube rectifier, you could buy a Supro Saturn).
I don't know whether this is + or -, but EQ is surprisingly different at high and low volumes. At low volume, bass is really heavy, highs are pretty subtle. When you push past 7 or 8, (or dime it) the EQ straightens out into perfection. Seriously, the actual ideal of what electric guitar should sound like. As such, it's definitely not a little desk amp, even though it's a small package and it sounds good at lower volumes.
The reverb is gorgeous. Tremolo and reverb are in the opposite signal order from a classic Fender. Tremolo on max depth isn't as strong as on a Fender--I'm not bothered by this in the least, but it's worth noting. I've been playing Gibsons through this, and it truly brings out everything I love (and don't love) in each guitar.
Gets great warm, bluesy, funky sounds. Never played a 60s Supro Tremo-verb and I wasn't aware of the whole Zeppelin legacy around Supro (I thought Jimmy Page played Marshalls...). Don't know what else to say other than when I played a Les Paul and 335 through it clean w/ a touch of reverb, it was the sound I wanted.
