Supro Delta King 8 Review Demo

One watt sounds monstrous in this '50s-meets-modern mighty mite.

Solid class A tone at an affordable price. Responsive and fun to crank. Simple design. Line level signal from the line-out jack adds useful functionality.

Probably too quiet for a gig-able clean tone.
