Supro 1624T Dual-Tone 1 x 12 Combo
This 24-Watt, 1×12 tube combo can easily be driven to glorious saturation at a manageable gigging volume while retaining exceptional clarity and bandwidth, at any level of gain. This amp's unique mojo is largely defined by the use of 6973 power tubes in the amplifier's output stage. These robust 9-pin tubes were employed extensively in the mid- and low-power Supro amps made 50 years ago. 6973 tubes look like EL84s but they deliver a distinctly American voice that has been missing from the world of tube amplifiers for far too long.
The Dual-Tone's linkable channels each sport volume and tone controls as well as a shared tremolo circuit. Plugging into IN 1+2 links both preamp channels in parallel for double the input signal and double the gain. This clever topology lets you hit the power amp as hard as necessary and even allows "channel switching" in its purest form, using a simple A/B switch.
The 1964 reissue Supro Dual-Tone's vintage-correct, lightweight cabinet - combined with our breathtaking custom 12" Supro speaker - kicks out surprisingly plump low end with all the detailed midrange and high end articulation that defines the Supro tone players have been chasing for decades. Loud enough to gig with a band, yet easy to haul around town, the Supro Dual-Tone is the perfect small club and recording amplifier.
In an effort to recreate the musical glory of the original Supro amplifiers, we have partnered with Eminence to bring you a series of USA-made speakers unlike anything else available today. Using a recipe that includes an edge-wound voice coil, ceramic magnet and lightweight stiff paper cone, the custom speakers found in Supro amplifiers deliver vintage American tone, with far more power handling, superior efficiency and nice firm bottom end.
For years folks have claimed that the Supro 1624T is the "Page" amp, and for all intents and purposes, it is. The actual amp used by Jimmy Page to record the first two Led Zeppelin albums as well as the solo for Stairway to Heaven from Led Zeppelin IV, was actually a modified 1962 Supro 1690T Coronado. In the early sixties, the Supro 1624T and 1690T both shared the same 6973-based power section. Apparently Page put a 12" speaker baffle on his '62 1690T Coronado, effectively turning it into a 1624T.
Throughout the 60's the 6973-powered 1×12 Dual-Tone remained consistent within the Supro lineup, while the 2×10 Coronado was eventually outfitted with the more powerful 6L6 output stage found in the Thunderbolt. This change makes sense from a tonal perspective; the 24 Watts produced by the 6973 power tubes is ideally suited to driving a single 12" speaker, while the 35 Watts dual-6L6 configuration provides more heft to push the two 10" drivers in the Coronado.
The moral of this story is that plugging a Telecaster into the Supro 1624T Dual-Tone reissue is absolutely the fastest and most authentic path to achieving the epic tone from the first two Led Zeppelin records.

While there isn't a law requiring ecommerce stores to have a Return Policy, you may need one if you wish to enforce your terms and parameters of returns and refunds.
For example, in the state of New York, if a retailer does not provide a Return & Refund Policy, the retailer will be required to accept returns and give refunds for all merchandise returned within 30 days of purchase. If you wish to limit this in any way, you will need to create and post a Return Policy with your own custom terms.
Another reason for having a Return Policy even if not required by law is that most consumers prefer to shop at retailers with a clearly-posted Return Policy. This is especially important when shopping online, as more issues are likely when purchasing something without being able to see it in person first.
If you don't have a Return Policy, you may be at the mercy of state laws regulating return and refund timeframes. You may also lose potential customers who are concerned about not being able to return a product if they need or want to.
