The 1699R Statesman from KMC Musical Instruments is a two-channel, 50W amplifier that offers A/B/Both channel switching operation, tube-driven spring reverb, and variable send-and-return levels.

The Statesman’s red channel uses the two-knob preamp from the Supro Thunderbolt amplifier for high-headroom power, while the blue channel contains the high-gain preamp, 2-band EQ, and all-tube reverb section of Supro’s Comet model. In addition, both the effects loop and the reverb on the Statesman feature a relay-controlled spill-over effect.

The Supro Statesman is available in a 1x12 combo format or as a compact head.
