The Supro 1699R Statesman amplifier comes in combo form (either 1 x 12 or 2 x 12) or in head form (known as the 1699RH). All three versions use the same set of 7 valves to get their amazing tone:
4 x ECC83 (also called 12AX7) preamp valves.
1 x ECC81 (12AT7).
2 x 5881 matched power valves/power tubes.
Over time your valves will lose their tone and their power. A brand new set of valves will get your amp sounding better than ever.
We always recommend JJ valves for this amplifier. This is because they guarantee you get awesome tone and long life and they don’t cost a fortune.
Remember, JJ is one of only five manufacturers of valves in the world. So don’t pay higher prices for valves from the same factory that have simply been rebranded by other companies.
So restore the tone, the power and the sparkle to your guitar amplifier. Treat yourself to a brand new set of valves today.

“The 1699R Statesman is a two-channel, 50W amplifier that unites vintage Supro tone with modern channel switching functionality, tube-driven reverb and a multi-purpose, all-tube effects loop.
The red channel found in the Statesman uses the two-knob preamp from the legendary Supro Thunderbolt amplifier for high-headroom rock & roll power. The Statesman’s blue channel contains the high-gain preamp, 2-band EQ and all-tube reverb section of our acclaimed Comet model. The Statesman provides A/B/Both channel switching operation, allowing the two channels to be run in parallel, creating a massive, dual-preamp sound where each channel contributes part of the overall texture”.
