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

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
