Supro is announcing their most versatile amp to date with the introduction of the Galaxy head and combo along with companion 1×12 and 4×12 halfback extension cabinets.
The Galaxy is a 50-watt channel-switching tube amp, designed to deliver more clean tone and more tube overdrive than any Supro ever made. The Galaxy amplifier combines the cleanest Supro preamp channel from our pedal-friendly Keeley model, with a Zinky-designed overdrive channel that has more than enough gain to seamlessly transition from the edge of breakup into complex tube saturation and sustain—without sacrificing dynamics or losing tonal balance at stage volume. The unique gain structure, world-class reverb, advanced switching options and low-impedance FX loop capabilities found in the Galaxy deliberately move Supro into the realm of boutique American tube amps, pioneered by Randall Smith, Paul Rivera and Alexander Dumble.
The result of a decade-long collaboration between Supro president David Koltai and legendary tube amp designer Bruce Zinky, the Galaxy Overdrive channel uses multiple cascaded tube stages to deliver a wide-open lead tone with more available gain than any other Supro.
The Galaxy amplifier’s all-tube signal path includes footswitchable solo boost. The tube-driven, six-spring reverb in the Galaxy amplifier is assignable to either one or both channels. A dedicated dwell control for the overdrive channel is located on the rear panel, allowing for preset attenuation of the signal feeding the reverb pan when the overdrive channel is turned on. An all-tube FX loop stage provides a perfectly buffered signal to interact optimally with stompboxes, multi-effects and modern switching systems that require the 4-cable method for inserting time-based effects in between the preamp and power amp stages of the Supro Galaxy.
The Supro Galaxy is available as 1×12 combo or compact head dressed in tuxedo-black leatherette tolex with matching 1×12 and 4×12 half-back extension cabinet options. Premium, Eminence CV75 Redcoat speakers have been specially selected for the Galaxy model for their exceptional performance across all genres of music: from crystal-clear ethereal cleans to dirty blues to the heaviest low-tuned riffs.
