Supro's Black Magick electric guitar amplifier head is engineered to replicate the sound of 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 1695TH Black Magick amplifier head will instantly take you back to the tones of "Good Times Bad Times" and "Communication Breakdown."
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 head is a re-creation of that amp, in a head format that allows you to choose whatever speaker configuration works best for you. Crank this amp up and bask in those iconic sounds while you enjoy touch-sensitive levels of grit.
Like the original, the Black Magick boasts two separate channels with their own inputs. On this 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.
The Black Magick sounds so good that just cranking it up and digging in is well worth the price of admission. But the 1695TH 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 1695TH is covered in black rhino Tolex that makes it visually stand out from most other tube amp heads on the market today. Needless to say, guitarists at Sweetwater are stoked for this amp.
