Supro stompboxes are hand-assembled in Port Jefferson, NY, USA. These state-of-the-art pedals feature custom-tooled, anodized, brushed-aluminum enclosures, 9V battery or AC-powered operation, rear-mounted metal jacks, easy-access side-mounted battery drawer, noiseless (click-free) true-bypass switching and unique, expression pedal functionality.
Emulates a Class-A tube amp circuit from end-to-end.
The Supro Tremolo is an analog stompbox designed to recreate two of the most desirable vacuum tube based modulation effects found in American amplifiers of the 1960’s. The Supro Tremolo pedal’s AMPLITUDE / HARMONIC switch allows the musician to choose between these distinctly different, vintage effects. AMPLITUDE mode provides the traditional swampy, tremolo sounds generated by bias modulating the power tubes in the original Supro amps. HARMONIC mode provides the psychedelic tones of Leo Fender’s brownface and blonde amps from the early 60’s. We’ve implemented Leo’s unique “harmonic tremolo” effect within the output stage of the pedal to create an “amp-like” modulation experience.
Emulates a Class-A Supro amp from end to end
No other pedal sounds more like a real Supro amp than the Supro Drive. This groundbreaking analog pedal re-creates the circuitry of a Supro amp, from end to end, including an actual output transformer. As the Supro sound has gained widespread popular recognition as a pillar of classic rock guitar tone, numerous amp and pedal companies claim to have captured our coveted sound by cloning the original Supro preamp, in stompbox format. They all got it wrong! The real tone of a genuine Supro amp has everything to do with the unique phase inverter design, Class A power amp section and the magnetic saturation that occurs via the old-school transformers found in these vintage tone machines. In short, the iconic sound of a Supro amp being pushed into overdrive has everything to do with the POWER AMP.
Fuzz Face dynamics, Big Muff sustain and Tone Bender harmonics
What if you combine the ruthless sustain of a silver box Big Muff with the harmonic signature of a Tone Bender MkII and the unrivaled touch dynamics of a germanium Fuzz Face? Would you get the ultimate vintage Fuzz pedal? Here at Supro USA, we think so. The Supro Fuzz takes this “best-of-all-worlds” approach to old-school fuzz using an N.O.S. Germanium transistor in the first stage, followed by secondary, silicon-based gain and a dash of our special sauce to create a low-noise, high-gain fuzz box that will leave you deaf and breathless.
Frequency linear boost up to 20db
Supro Boost is a “clean” pre-amp ideally suited to pushing the front end of a tube amp. This J-FET based pedal design delivers up to 20db noiseless gain boost plus optional High Pass or Low Pass filtering to contour your sound. Simple, straight-forward and effective, the Supro Boost pedal remains clean and sweet at all settings, no matter how hard you push it with other pedals earlier in the chain. The Supro boost also remains frequency linear as the gain is adjusted, allowing the musician to set the desired level of boost without sacrificing overall tone or requiring them to adjust their amp’s EQ settings to compensate.
