"Valco didn't raise the grill cloth away from the baffle like the nice folks at Fender did with their amps and this problem turns up fairly often, especially on amps using a 15" speaker and having a Bass input. To fix the problem will…"

Vibtating/Rattling Supro Supreme

Hey there everyone! Got a question: I just upgraded my speaker in my Supro Supreme with a Weber 10F125 30 Watt 8 ohm Speaker (recommended by Terry). The speaker is in perfect working condition and tightened properly. Here's my question, How do I stop my speaker grill cloth from vibrating at high volumes? I know it is the grill cloth because if i put it face down into the floor the.rattle goes away completely. The rattle is especially bad while using the neck pickup on my Les Paul. I like to use…See More

Lacquering My Supro Super 1606

Posted on May 15, 2011 at 11:00am 0 Comments

Hi All,

I just wanted to put up a post to discuss a little project I recently finished on my Supro Super 1606. 

So, you know those frayed edges that are on all those vintage Supro's, with the grey wallpaper/windowshade material used cover these awesome amps?  Well, I wanted to stop any further fraying and also protect the covering left. 

I contacted Terry and he suggested taking a toothpick or a flathead screwdriver and placing some quality wood glue in between the…

I just finished talking with Terry and he totally hooked up my Supro Super.  All I can say is:  What a class act Terry is!  Very professional, knowledgeable, and courteous.  I'm a proud member of this forum.

History of Valco

The Valco company has its roots in the National String Instrument Corporation, which was founded in 1927. The company is famous as the first manufacturer of resonator guitars, which were hugely popular in blues and (a bit later) bluegrass music. National merged with the Dobro company, another maker of resonator guitars, around 1932 to form the National Dobro Corporation. The company began producing electric instruments in the 1930s that included electric guitars, lap steels, mandolins and amplifiers. These pre-war electric instruments are fairly rare today, though the lap steels pop up with some regularity. The archtop bodies for the guitars were sourced from Regal and then from Kay, but the electronics were developed and manufactured by National-Dobro. The Supro brand name was introduced in the mid-‘30s for cheaper electric instruments.
