Supro’s Neptune joins the space race

Supro's Neptune joins the space race

Supro USA has added yet another new model to its fast growing range of valve guitar amps, the Neptune reverb.
With an RRP of £1,499, the 25 Watt Neptune was created, UK distributor JHS says, in response to artist requests for a combo with 2×12″ BD speakers (as developed for the ‘Black Magick’ combo) and a spring reverb.
‘The Neptune’s microphone-friendly midrange is largely derived from its vintage-correct, 25 watt Class-A power section. It is this unique, “self-biasing” power amp that holds the key to the vintage Supro sound. The Neptune Reverb’s remarkably low noise floor makes this amp perfect for live performance at any volume. Even when pushed hard, the Neptune’s power section overdrives with a distinctive clarity, leaving plenty of front-end headroom for use with all kinds of stompbox effects,’ JHS adds.
Passive Treble and Bass EQ controls allow the musician to fine-tune the frequency response of the Featuring passive treble and bass controls and a four spring, valve-driven 17″ reverb tank, the Neptune also features a tremolo circuit which occurs in the output section: ‘…lending an ethereal shake and wobble to the enveloping wash of tube-driven reverb’.
