Supro adds 1×8 model to Blues King line

A modern version of the low-wattage Supro amplifiers produced out of Chicago in the 50s

Supro amplifiers has introduced the new 1×8″ Blues King 8 to its amplifier range. A modern iteration of the amps that started it all back in 1950s Chicago, the Blues King 8 was redeveloped from scratch to celebrate the legendary headroom that’s come to define Supro’s sound.
