Description
Up for sale, a 1959 Supro 1614N Spectator tube amplifier in excellent condition and in perfect working order. This miniature vintage wonder delivers the kind of midrange thickness and grit that's unique to Valco's vintage preamps and original point-to-point circuits. USA made with a five watt Class A circuit and 8" Jensen speaker, this amp is perfectly suited for the recording studio, and sounds positively huge with a mic in front of it.

The circuit couldn't be simpler, with Volume and Tone controls, as well as three 1/4" inputs, independently voiced for "instrument" or "microphone." Aside from a new three-prong power cable, the circuit is completely original and stocked with vintage RCA tubes. The speaker is an era-correct Jensen C8R ceramic driver that has been freshly reconed and dates a few years after the production of the amp, yet has a sound that delivers a touch more clean tone and punch than the alnico speaker which would have come stock in this Supro.

The original textured gray and white two-tone covering is intact on the amp and in fantastic shape, along with the stock grillcloth and faint "Supro" silkscreen in the lower right corner. The white faceplate retains the original knobs and shows only light wear near the pilot lamp (these faceplates were prone to wear and this one is particularly nice). The original small serial number badge is intact on the back of the amp beneath the back panel, and aside from some light wear around the corners of the enclosure, this Supro is quite clean and would look great in a studio!
