THE BIRTH OF ROCK N’ ROLL
The Blues King 12 combo captures the vintage Supro amp tone that helped sculpt the sound of early electric Rock n’ Roll and the British Invasion of the 1960s. Its single-ended Class A tube power amp provides the same raw tonal characteristics and remarkable touch sensitivity features of its mid-century counterparts, all while delivering a full 15 watts of 6L6 tube power through our custom 12-inch BK12 speaker. Features include front-end gain via a 12AX7 tube preamp, a FET-driven boost function, Pigtronix FAT high-gain mode, 3-band EQ, master volume, and custom-made genuine analog spring reverb.
CUSTOM BK12 SPEAKER
A custom 12-inch BK12 speaker offers balanced, rich tone, specifically designed to capture the magic of the original field-coil speakers used by amp makers at the dawn of the electric age.
The Blues King 12 features a 12AX7 tube preamp, where the audio is gained up and sent to a 12AU7 triode power amp to deliver pure, unobstructed tone that epitomizes the 1950s Supro sound.
Hearkening back to the original Supro combo amplifiers, the Blues King 12 features a custom, poplar cabinet design, sleek black tolex and an overall minimal aesthetic.
HUGE RANGE OF FEATURES
Onboard analog spring reverb, FET-driven boost functionality, and Pigtronix FAT high-gain mode allow for an exceptional range of available effects and tonal options. A Line Output allows for a direct-to-recording option or driving tones to an additional amp.
