Supro Announces the Amulet 1x10 Combo Amp

Supro Announces the Amulet 1x10 Combo Amp

Designed for the gigging guitarist, the Amulet offers 15 watts, 5 watts or 1 watt of all-tube tone through a UK-made Celestion Creamback 10” speaker.


The Supro Amulet is a vintage-voiced 1x10 combo loaded with all-tube reverb and tremolo along with a new, three-way switchable power attenuator. Designed for the gigging guitarist, the Amulet offers 15 watts, 5 watts, or 1 watt of all-tube tone through a UK-made Celestion Creamback 10” speaker.

​Another legendary offering from Celestion, the G10 Creamback speaker offers vintage, woody tone while still providing major power. Its rich low-end complements the Amulet’s singing voice, while crunchy upper-mids and sweet highs aid in undeniably articulate tone.

The preamp found in the Amulet delivers warm, blooming clean sounds up to ‘noon’ on its volume knob. Past noon, its voice rolls into classic Supro crunch, giving way to a singing, violin-like overdrive at full volume. The Amulet is remarkably high-gain for a vintage-inspired amp but offers a sweet spot that is not overwhelmingly loud.

The power amp found in the Amulet uses a single 6L6 tube with switchable power soak to achieve bedroom level 1-watt, studio-friendly 5-watt or a more robust 15-watt output for stage use. The overdrive in the Amulet’s “single-ended,” Class-A output stage is rich in even-order harmonics and soaked in natural tube compression. True to the legacy of original Supro combos, the Amulet’s exceptional dynamics, ultra-low noise performance, and three-way power attenuator make it an ideal amplifier for club gigs, studio recording, and bedroom practice.

Available for pre-order at select dealers worldwide. MSRP $1199.

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
