The power-amp found in the Comet uses a single 6L6 tube with switchable plate voltage to achieve studio and practice friendly 6 Watts or a more robust 14 Watts for stage use. The overdrive that occurs within the Comet’s “single-ended,” Class-A output stage is rich in even-order harmonics and soaked in tube compression. True to the legacy of the original, microphone-friendly Supro combos, the Comet’s exceptional dynamics and ultra-low noise performance make it an ideal recording amp.
The Comet is dressed in 1959 Supro cosmetics, with Black Rhino Hide tolex, black piping, white welting and a gold faceplate. Similar in construction to our award winning Black Magick and Supreme amplifier models, there is no beam blocker in front of the Comet’s custom-made CR10 speaker, facilitating maximum throw and crystal-clear treble response from this compact all-tube masterpiece.
A matching 1700 BD12 loaded, 1×12 extension cabinet can also be hooked up to the Comet, bringing the overall speaker impedance load down to 4-ohms to deliver maximum punch and additional stage volume for gigs. The 1610 Comet, and the entire line of Supro amps is hand-assembled in by Absara Audio in Port Jefferson, NY, USA.
