The Supro Black Magick Head (1695TH £1299 UK rrp) packs all the award-winning tone and circuitry of the Black Magick combo into a compact all-tube head format. This 25W, high-gain blues machine pairs perfectly with the Supro Black Magick 1×12, 1×15, Statesman 2×12 extension cabinets or your favourite vintage 4×12 cab.
With more gain on tap than any other Supro reissue, Black Magick absolutely rips for heavy blues and classic rock guitar styles. This amp’s traditional, cathode-biased “Class-A” power section uses 6973 tubes to achieve the instantly recognizable midrange grind and phenomenal touch dynamics that define the Supro sound. A complete range of tones from warm cleans to heavy distortion can be accessed by simply adjusting the volume knob on your instrument. The signature Supro power tube tremolo adds footswitchable depth and dimension to this historic Rock and Roll machine.
The preamp found in the Black Magick features two channels wired in parallel, with independent volume controls and a single, shared tone control. The vintage-correct front-end topology of the original 1959 Supro combos has been streamlined in the Black Magick, with automatic linking of channels 1&2 when using only the first input jack. This flexible arrangement provides double the gain when used with one instrument and allows for two instruments to share the same Black Magick or for the use of an A/B/Y box to achieve channel-switching on the fly.
