Anyone here familiar with the Supro Delta King 12 amp?

I've read a whole bunch about this amp and although I have no place to try one out, am thinking of order one.  Anyone here have experience with this amp (or the 10)?  Any info/feedback would be appreciated/helpful!

    A friend of mine just got the 12 earlier this week. He said he really likes it so far. He had the 10 before that.

    According to him, those amps are voiced for blues and they sound really great when you push them to the point where they overdrive.

    Cool, thanks Dudeman!

    I'm getting closer to going with this one.  The versatility of sounds it can make put out illustrated really well here:

    Looks & sounds like it has a lot of versatility. I may test one out next time I'm at Guitar Center/other music store. I love my HRD, but a new amp would be fun.

    The Hot Rod Deluxe is a great amp.  I checked one out ans it sounds great but is a little too aggressive for my sounds sensitive hearing (hyperacusis).  The Supro seems to have a fairly warm sound and if I go with it, I'll also get an attenuator so I can get an over-driven sound at low volume.  It also has a nice reverb which I'm big on.  Many years ago, I foolishly sold off cheap a n original '65 Fender Deluxe Reverb.  I had no idea at the time how valuable it would become.  Talk about great reverb and tone.  Oh my!

  • One day I'll own a HRD! I've been in love with it ever since I jammed at Matt's back in 2018.

    HRD is a great amp...definitely wouldn't get rid of that. Would be fun to have a different amp to play through every now & again, though.

    For sure!  If I had the space, the money, and good hearing, I probably have about 10 amps, lol!
