Supro 1696RT Black Magick Reverb 25-watt 1x12" Tube Combo Amplifier 1696-rt
For rock fans, the guitar tones on Led Zeppelin 1 are some of the most revered in history. While they sound like a huge stack of screaming amps, in reality, much of those tones were conjured from Jimmy's highly customized 1 x 12" Supro combo.
Like the original, the Black Magick boasts two separate channels with their own inputs. On this new model, however, the channels can easily be run separately or in parallel. The parallel option cascades the channels together for increased gain, tone shaping, and sensitivity. You can also use an additional A/B pedal to switch between the two channels for different tones. And it's also possible to run two separate instruments through the Black Magick simultaneously.
The Black Magick sounds so good that just cranking it up and digging in is well worth the price of admission. But the 1696RT also boasts a stellar tube-driven tremolo, with double the speed range compared to its predecessor. The trem's depth and dimension can be switched via footswitch (not included). An uncommon pair of 6973 power tubes is what delivers the immediately recognizable midrange of the amplifier. And the 1696RT is covered in black rhino Tolex that makes it visually stand out from most other tube combo amps on the market today.
