Supro Releases the Royale Combo

Supro announces the Royale, designed to deliver loud and vivid clean tone with footswitchable boost and tube-buffered effects loop.


The all-new Royale 1x12 represents a new chapter in Supro history as the first loud, clean amp in the brand’s product lineup. The Royale was designed to deliver loud and vivid clean tone with a remarkably responsive, tactile low-end. A high-headroom, 50W tube amplifier with a powerful EQ, footswitchable boost, tube-buffered effects loop and glorious tube-driven spring reverb.

The 5881-loaded power amp in the Royale offers a choice of Class A (35W) or Class AB (50W) operation, as well as a master volume to control sound pressure level. Class A mode delivers the traditional, cathode-biased Supro sound with a bold, spongy midrange. Class AB delivers a grid-biased California sound with more scooped mid-range, tighter bass and faster transient response. Housed in poplar cabinetry with vintage-inspired Black Scandia tolex and a hemp grill cloth. Features the custom Supro BD12 speaker.

Now available for pre-order at select dealers. www.suprousa.com

We’ll look at ways to use drones in a variety of contexts, from ancient to contemporary, blues to metal, traditional to experimental.
