This Is the Zeppelin Sound

Supro's 1695T Black Magick electric guitar combo amplifier is engineered to replicate the highly customized Supro that Jimmy Page used to record much of the early Zeppelin guitar tracks. The Black Magick is the highest-gain amp in Supro's line, which makes it fantastic for attaining huge rock sounds. And the two channels can be run independently or in parallel for even more crunch and tone-shaping options. The Supro 1695T Black Magick combo amplifier will instantly take you back to the tones of "Good Times Bad Times" and "Communication Breakdown."

Supro 1695T Black Magick Electric Guitar Combo Amplifier at a Glance:
  • The Jimmy Page legacy
  • Two powerful channels
  • Even more tonal options
The Jimmy Page legacy

For rock fans, the guitar tones on Led Zeppelin 1 are some of the most revered in history. While they sound like a huge stack of screaming amps, in reality, much of those tones were conjured from Jimmy's highly customized 1 x 12" Supro combo. The Black Magick is a re-creation of that amp, down to the replaced speaker baffle from when Page converted the amp from a 2 x 10" design. Crank this amp up and bask in those iconic sounds while you enjoy touch-sensitive levels of grit.

Two powerful channels

Like the original, the Black Magick boasts two separate channels with their own inputs. On this new model, however, the channels can easily be run separately or in parallel. The parallel option cascades the channels together for increased gain, tone shaping, and sensitivity. You can also use an additional A/B pedal to switch between the two channels for different tones. And it's also possible to run two separate instruments through the Black Magick simultaneously.

Even more tonal options

The Black Magick sounds so good that just cranking it up and digging in is well worth the price of admission. But the 1695T also boasts a stellar tube-driven tremolo. The trem's depth and dimension can be switched via footswitch (not included). An uncommon pair of 6973 power tubes is what delivers the immediately recognizable midrange of the amplifier. And the 1695T is covered in black rhino Tolex that makes it visually stand out from most other tube combo amps on the market today. Needless to say, guitarists at Sweetwater are stoked for this amp!

Supro 1695T Black Magick Electric Guitar Combo Amplifier Features:
  • Combo amp that replicates Jimmy Page's famous Supro
  • 25 watts into a custom 12" speaker
  • 2 channels can be run parallel, individually, or with 2 instruments simultaneously
  • Tube tremolo controlled by footswitch (not included)
  • 2 x 6973 power tubes
The Supro 1695T Black Magick gives you the grind all rock fans have come to love.

An absolute gem

By far this is my best sounding amp for humbucker equiped guitars. It sounds sick, has amazing dynamics, and looks the business. It has "mojo" in spades. Absolutely no complaints. Very, very special amp. Thank you Supro and Sweetwater.

Just got this amp a few days ago and I'm amazed by the amps harmonics and dynamic range. I used both the Supro overdrive and my EVH 5150 overdrive and I can't believe the tonal qualities. I also ran it with a Marshall silver jubilee 4x10 cabinet with a delay pedal in the chain....incredible sounding. This little 25 watt amp sounded more powerful than 3 other of my 50 watt high gain amps. They hit a grand slam with this mofo!

Awesome Classic Tones

You can see all the specs here at Sweetwater, so I won't bore you with those details. What you want to know is does it sound good and can I gig with it? Yes to both. The Black Magick has a clarity I've not witnessed in other amps. I sat it next to my Fender 68 Custom Deluxe Reverb (which I love), and the Supro just did everything better. It had more definition: each note of the chord rings out beautifully even after the amp breaks up. It has plenty of volume. This is NOT a bedroom amp if you're looking for tube distortion. It stays clean and bright with plenty of volume. It breaks up a little past halfway and doesn't get a ton louder from 7-10, but it gets grittier and more compressed. It's my favorite cranked amp without a pedal. But I'll be honest, it's darn loud to get to that sweet spot. I play classic rock with a four-piece band (with another guitar player), and at rehearsal there's no way I could crank this amp to 10; anyone concerned about volume from this 25-watt monster must be playing with Pete Townshend or Angus Young. In today's world of mostly gigging in small to medium-size clubs, you won't need any more power than what the Black Magick gives you if you're playing rock. Thankfully it takes pedals really well. I put either a Wampler Super Plextortion or Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret in front, and the Supro sounds like a beast without losing its clarity. I never had to worry about being heard in the mix and I never had to crank up to be "above" everyone else. The other guitarist in my band uses a Dr. Z Remedy through a 2x12 with Vintage 30s. Our amps blend together nicely. We never have to get into a volume war even though we share lead guitar duties throughout the set. I roll the volume back on my guitar for smooth and thick rhythm, and turn it up for a biting lead tone that slices through the mix. The Supro is super sensitive to your pick attack. Play it light and it sounds pretty. Dig in and it growls. Again this is an area where the Black Magick outshines the Fender Deluxe at its own game. As far as "THE" Jimmy Page amp... I don't know. I don't typically chase famous tones or get caught up in the minutiae of every detail of a specific sound from a specific record. I messed around with a few early Zeppelin riffs (who could resist?), and the Supro sounded authentic enough for me in that regard. I was super pleased at how the Supro gave me an early 70s Stones vibe: that not-quite-clean but not-quite-distorted rhythm tone that sounds oh, so sweet. In short, if you're a rock guitarist looking for a 1x12 combo, you owe it to yourself to at least try the Supro Black Magick.

It's all about the tone!!

This is one awesome amp. The tones regardless what guitar I plug in are amazing. Plug in a Tele and you have early Jimmy Page / Zeppelin tones. Roll off the volume and it cleans up nicely. Plus, the tube driven tremolo is great too. Not only great for guitar though...it can be used with electric pianos, synths, and organs with incredible results! Loud enough for smaller gigs and loud enough for stage monitoring with microphone to mix for the house. Size is portable with foot switchable tremolo (Sold Separately) and Supro cover (also sold separately). I also recommend checking out the three Supro Pedals. Solid build, great features such as Expression pedal control and they compliment any tube amp with professional noise free tuneful sound. Reverb option would have really been nice for that reverb into tremolo Supro sound that makes that combination difinatively unique to Supro. No complaints though because it is such a unique amp and as a studio owner I am finding clients who try it, want to record with the amp. Also, the amp takes pedals very well. It would have been nice to have a line out or effects loop.

Stunning little amp

I am blown away. I have been playing for nearly 40 years now, and have used many different types of amps. I own a variety of modded tube amps and know great tone when I hear it. I tried out one of these Black Magick Supro's today, and all I can say is 'Wow!'. I was shocked at just how great this little amp is. The video's posted here on Sweetwater simply do not do this amp justice, it is a million times better sounding than what you hear in the video's. Plugged in a new '57 RI Les Paul Goldtop to this and the four other Supro models that they had on display at a local store. I got to crank each one and take my time putting them through the paces. Ultimately, they ALL sounded very, VERY good, but THIS one stood out from the crowd. Think Led Zep I and II on steroids (this model was supposedly based on 'the' original Supro that Jimmy Pages' donated to the hard Rock Cafe). The tone was full, natural, woody, and beautiful at any volume level. I ended up putting the amp at about 85% of full volume and simply using the volume on the Les Paul to control volume/intensity/tone....it was the most heavenly 25 watts I've ever heard! This thing was just creamy, buttery, beautiful tone. Bottom Line: THIS amp is exactly what God intended a combo amp to sound like. If I were stranded on a dessert island (that somehow had power), THIS is the amp I would want with me. This amp is now at the top of my 'must have' list, I was simply blown away by how good this thing sounds. The ONLY drawback, other than it was a 'bit' pricey, is that it is PCB construction and not point-to-point or turret board assembly, The Supro web site, to their credit, does address this, and insists that the type of PCB construction used here is legit and most appropriate for the amp to withstand the abuse that most all of us put them through. To summarize, yes it's pricey but you get what you pay for in terms of tone. I just can't say enough good about this amp. Despite the price of admission, this amp warrants your attention as it is simply one of the best amps that I have ever heard.
