'56 Supro/Valco Comet

Here's a 1956 Supro/Valco Comet, covered in glorious, glorious tweed. Our book says this is the only Supro amp with a ten-inch speaker that they made in the 50s. Not as clean as our blackface and silverface Champs, but very cool and practically dripping killer tone.

We're going to very carefully and respectfully try to freshen up the inside of this amp. As with most well-used gear from the fifties, this thing looks like it has seen the elephant, and all his children. Plug in your guitar and it'll tell you all about it.
