1964 Supro Model 24 in very good condition, serial number: G24741. This is a hand-wired point-to-point all-tube Supro amp manufactured by Valco Mfg. Co. in 1964. The circuit has not been altered. The original grillecloth is excellent-condition, the tolex has a few scuffs and scrapes, mainly around the edges. The chrome control panel has a few small patches of rust. The lettering is present and totally legible.

This amp has been fully serviced and comes with a 3 month warranty and step down transformer. During the service our tech noted: New 3 pin power chord fitted. Original pots, transformer and circuitry. The Jensen C12R speaker dates to the 46th week of 1967, so is therefore not original to the amp.

Based on the Supro amp catalogs, this is rated at 17 watts RMS power into the 8 ohm Jensen speaker. This is essentially the same amp and circuit as the Supro model 1624T from 1959 through 1962. All that was changed from the 1624T was a longer chassis, the addition of a separate tone knob for each channel, a larger, open-backed cabinet ( For more volume and woody TONE ), and the model number was shortened from 1624 to "Model 24. All of the "24" model amps from 1959-1967 share the same basic circuits and tube compliment ( 3 - 12ax7's, a pair of 6973 power tubes and a 5Y3GT rectifier tube ).The cabinet dimensions are 23.75" wide, 16.5" high and 8" deep. The amp weighs:11.5kg.
