Overview

The Supro 1610 Comet is a high-gain, low-wattage 1x10 combo with reverb, tremolo and switchable power. Designed to act as a go-anywhere companion to your favorite guitars, this lightweight tube amp cranks out 6-Watts or 14-Watts of screaming hot vintage tone with an on-board option to drench your sound in tube-driven reverb and tremolo. The Comet is your desert-island tube amplifier.

The preamp found in the Comet delivers warm, blooming clean tones up until 12-o-clock on the volume knob. Past noon, the Comet’s voice rolls over into Supro crunch, giving way to a singing, violin-like overdrive at full volume. The Comet is remarkably high-gain for a vintage flavored amp and it nails that sweet-spot without being too loud for comfort.

The Comet’s vintage correct tremolo effect occurs in the preamp, before the reverb. This 12AX7-based tremolo circuit allows for wider overall speed range and a deeper effect as compared to Supro's louder models, where the tremolo happens in the power tubes, after the reverb.

The power-amp found in the Comet uses a single 6L6 tube with switchable plate voltage to achieve studio and practice friendly 6 Watts or a more robust 14 Watts for stage use. The overdrive that occurs within the Comet’s “single-ended,” Class-A output stage is rich in even-order harmonics and soaked in tube compression. True to the legacy of the original, microphone-friendly Supro combos, the Comet’s exceptional dynamics and ultra-low noise performance make it an ideal recording amp.

The Comet is dressed in 1959 Supro cosmetics, with Black Rhino Hide tolex, black piping, white welting and a gold faceplate. Similar in construction to the award-winning Black Magick and Supreme amplifier models, there is no beam blocker in front of the Comet’s custom-made CR10 speaker, facilitating maximum throw and crystal-clear treble response from this compact all-tube masterpiece.

A matching 1700 BD12-loaded, 1x12 extension cabinet can also be hooked up to the Comet, bringing the overall speaker impedance load down to 4-ohms to deliver maximum punch and additional stage volume for gigs. The 1610 Comet, and the entire line of Supro amps is hand-assembled in by Absara Audio in Port Jefferson, NY, USA.

What an interesting amp

By Charlie

from Charlottesville, Va.

Comments about Supro 1610RT Comet 6/14W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

Just bought this amp, and I'm glad I read a review somewhere in which the user said "Play it for a while." It's so different sounding that I almost packed it up and returned it. First, Supro bills it as a "high-gain" and it absolutely is not that. But it distorts really well, and wow is it fat. When you play rhythm parts on a single coil guitar, there's a whole lower midrange thing going on that is just great. Second thing is the single tone control is exceedingly useful -- as you turn it up to brighten the sound, it slowly pulls back the bass, which is cool if you are switching between single coil and humbucking guitars. If your guitar sounds a little strangled, try turning up the tone a little -- it clears right out. Third, the 6-watt/14-watt switch is a very noticeable change, so you can really use this for rehearsal and for gigs. This amp does not sound like anything else -- it has elements of Fender, Ampeg, Hiwatt, and Marshall in it, but you really can't pigeonhole it. One last thing -- it really does open up after a couple of hours of playing, so give it a chance. I'm glad I did.

      Comments about Supro 1610RT Comet 6/14W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      I have tried several amps over the years. Fender Hot Rod, Blues JR 3, Princeton Reverb, GDEC 30, Vox AC15C1, etc. Liked the Vox maybe the best for tone, but it was still beast at home. This Supro Comet seems to be a perfect amp for my usage at home. Kind of expensive, but well built and great tones without blowing the windows out. Plenty of volume and relatively light weight to move around the den.

      Worth the $$$

      Comments about Supro 1610RT Comet 6/14W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      A little pricey for a low wattage 1X10 amp, the comet has proven to be worth it. A great sounding living room amp with just the right combination of clean head room and grit. It has that classic Supro sound - a flavor of tube saturation/compression unique to Supro. Extremely well built. The price is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.
