The Supro 1648RT Saturn Reverb amplifier is a future-retro amplifier designed for the working player who needs a lightweight, vintage-flavoured amp with world-class tube reverb.
The store owner, Steven James, was looking to take this amp out on tour and bought a £200 SwanFlight flight case to take it in, but never actually got round to taking it out. So it is still in brand new unused condition and now includes a flight case!

The Supro 1648RT Saturn Reverb is a lightweight, vintage sounding amp powered by a pair of 6973 tubes with a 5U4 tube rectifier. Tactile response and signature breakup that Supro is known for is delivered with a manageable volume. Sporting a vintage-correct cabinetry and classic Supro styling with complete power-tube tremolo and all-tube spring reverb, the 1648RT is an ideal amp for working guitarists.
The Saturn Reverb's blue rhino hide tolex, vintage-correct cabinetry and fundamental circuit topology are all drawn from the original Supro Reverb combos of the mid 60's. Like its ancestors, the new Saturn Reverb's power-tube tremolo comes after the reverb pan, lending an ethereal shake and wobble to the enveloping wash of tube-driven spring reverb. The Supro Saturn Reverb's four-spring, 17" long reverb pan and all-tube reverb drive and recovery stages provide warm and smooth 'verb that "surrounds the note" without getting in the way, even when the amplifier is cranked all the way up for maximum grind.
The Saturn Reverb's amazingly low noise floor makes this amp perfect for players who prefer to crank the amp and use the guitar's volume knob to control texture and dynamics. Independent treble and bass controls allow the musician to fine tune the frequency response of the preamp to accommodate a wide range of pickups and varied stage environments.
In an effort to recreate the musical glory of the original Supro amplifiers, Supro have collaborated with Eminence to bring a series of USA-made speakers unlike anything else available today. Using a recipe that includes an edge-wound voice coil, ceramic magnet and lightweight stiff paper cone, the custom speakers found in Supro amplifiers deliver vintage American (i.e. Jensen) tone, with far more power handling, superior efficiency and nice firm bottom.
