The Blues King 8 is a modern rendition of the low-wattage Supro amplifiers that were produced in Chicago during the mid 1950s. Every element of the Blues King 8 amplifier was developed from scratch to deliver the legendary headroom and dynamics that define the vintage Supro sound. This timeless tonal recipe includes a genuine Class-A all-tube signal path, custom 8” speaker and vintage-style wood cabinetry.

When your guitar signal hits the front end of the Blues King 8, it goes directly into a 12AX7 tube preamp, where the audio is gained up and sent to a 12AU7 triode power amp that is capable of delivering a whopping 1 watt of pure American guitar tone. The Blues King 8 stays true to the Supro legacy by faithfully delivering a broad palette of clean and dirty tones for professional recording and home practice environments. Simply put, this little amp produces an enormous studio sound when placed in front of a microphone.

The front panel of the Blues King 8 offers Volume, Tone and Master Volume controls, along with a footswitchable Boost function that adjusts the gain of the tube preamp. The Blues King 8 also features a Line Output that allows this combo amp to double as an outboard tube distortion unit feeding another amplifier or DAW. The Line Output in the Blues King 8 is conveniently located before the Master Volume, allowing you to crank the preamp gain while blending in the sound of the on-board 8” speaker to taste.
The vintage-inspired poplar cabinetry is based on the mid-50’s Spectator model and comes loaded with a BK8 speaker. This custom-made, 8” driver was specifically designed to capture the magic of the original field-coil speakers used by amp makers at the dawn of the electric age.
