Supro Breakup from Your Amp

For classic Supro breakup that won't break your budget, check out the Supro Drive from Supro USA. This classic overdrive pedal by Thomas Elliott faithfully mimics the circuitry of the output section of a 1960s Supro amplifier - phase inverter, Class A power amp, and output transformer - for an authentic reproduction of one of the most sought-after tones in the biz. The Supro Drive even lets you control a custom gain range with an expression pedal for cranking up on the fly without losing your sweet spot - great for solos. The Supro Drive is housed in a durable brushed aluminum chassis with a studio-quiet true bypass switching system.

Noiseless true bypass switching is quiet and click free

The Supro Drive is built studio clean with noiseless true bypass switching that won't pop when you swap channels. Sweetwater guitarists appreciate this feature onstage and in the studio.

Amazing Tone

I couldn't yet afford a Supro amp, so I chose this pedal. I was not disappointed in the least. I plugged in an 18v power supply and put this in front of a Roland JC-40 and the tone is absolutely stellar! Great vintage tone range, but I've mostly been playing it with the gain on 10 so far :) Also, the switch is ultra quiet, which is important to me.
4.5/5

Great dirt box...

Really great overdrive. Works superbly with a clean or driven amp. Stacks with other pedals better than nearly any dirt box I've owned. Don't let the overdrive nomenclature fool you, it gets heavy, especially when pushed with another milder drive. Even on its own, it can get into fuzz territory. At first, running it in 9-volt mode, it was very nice, but a bit meh. As soon as I switched it to 18 volts, it was a whole other world... bolder, louder, more refined, and just all around more powerful and glorious. Has a great feel and is very responsive to your guitar's volume. Definitely a five-star pedal, but, and there's usually a but, there can be a touch too much bottom end at times, which the tone control can't dial out. Don't let that discourage you, it's not much, and sometimes is a welcomed addition, but I do wish there was a way to control it, with either an adjustable hp filter (ideally), or a switch for a slight roll off below 120 hZ. Just to be clear, even with the tiniest complaint, I'd buy it again and again as is.
Music background: Been playing longer than I care to admit

Sweetwater Advice

Supro Drive

If you're chasing deep Americana tones swampier than a midsummer's night in the Delta, look no further than the Supro Drive. The pedal's inventive mimicry of power tube distortion and output transformer characteristics delivers much of the midrangey grunt that makes vintage Valco and Supro amps so desirable....
