Supro Blues King 8 1x8" 1-watt Tube Combo Amp (Discontinued)
The Blues King appeared on our recommended list for Tube Amps from July 2021 until January 2022 when it was removed due to a lack of availability.
You don't need a loud, roaring amp for electric blues. A small, low-wattage amp like the Supro Blues King 8 is the perfect companion to lazy afternoons where you just feel like letting loose to some backing tracks in A minor to let off some steam.
Despite its 1 watt rating, it still puts out an impressive volume for home use especially when cranked.
Cranking the Blues King 8 rewards you with sweet saturation that is otherwise unattainable with higher wattage amps without disturbing the neighborhood.
It features a 12AX7 Preamp Tube and a 12AU7 Power Amp Tube.
The boost is switchable via external footswitch. An 8" Supro BK8 rounds out the little combo.
The Supro Blues King 8 is an amazing little amp that could. At low to mid gain, you're given a nice clean and edge-of-breakup tone, perfect for the hits of yesteryear. At full volume, you get a howling blues tone that could delve into early punk if you want.
