    I swear, the best small amp I've ever had the pleasure of playing through was a restored Supro Royal Reverb... was just amazing. Went back the next week to buy it -- but someone else already had.

      i have a 12 watt mojave coyote that i play through a 1x12 closed cab and it most definitely keeps pace with drums. in fact i'm not even close to half volume and i set up near some LOUD drummers.

        It's possible that it's a spray-on type of finish. The company that makes the speaker cabinets for me that I sell in my shop under the "Union Speaker Company" name has a spray-on finish that looks pretty similar. I know they can get it in black and white, and I'd assume that you could dye it if you started with pure white so that you could get a vintage or off-white shade. The stuff looks really nice when sprayed properly. Then again, the stuff that I've seen of Zinky's has been of a really high caliber anyway, so he's pretty much an artist in that respect, too, so he might just be exceptionally good at cutting and gluing vinyl. Whatever it is, you're right, it looks very clean.

        Zach, man, that's a nice looking amp.

                            Now that this Supro is getting the attention of the masses, I recalled a pedal circuit based on an old Supro 16T. It is an amp emulator pedal (basically the designers copied the actual amp circuit and substituted the valves for JFETS, making it possible to cram into an effects enclosure) called the Supreaux by the guys at RunoffGroove.

                            Anyway, cool amp Zach!

                              Congrats Zach! You and Keeley apparently share a love for Supro's. He snagged one here at a pawn shop -can't remember which model now..but saw this one at Dirk's Vintage Guitars today. Enjoy the new amp!!!
