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

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
