    I already have the Delta King 10 but that's still pretty tempting. Great amps.

    Good price, but that crossed out $499 is bogus. Supro's site has the list price shown as $329. I like the idea of an all tube 1w amp.

    I've not played thru the 8. I do own a first generation 12 inch model - the Blues King 12 - and it is a total winner.

    Assuming that there is a family resemblence, the 8 will have a truly unique sound signature. Not a Fender, or a Marshall or a Vox. No, a Supro. -A make with its own heritage and sound.

    Quality wise I have had no better amp. You see it and you feel it. The quality of the cabinet, the cover, even the control panel. Classy stuff all.

    The speaker is said to be a true custom model -- one that is said to get the sound of an old-fashioned field coil speaker.

    I can make no direct comparison, but between the circuitry, the cabinet and the speaker there is a unique, and to me very appealing, sound. More mid-range forward, but with a solid (not a "flubby") bottom end.

    Again this is the larger 12 inch model, but I'd be surprised if the description did not fit.

    The larger model (There were and are 3 -- with 8, 10, and 12 inch speakers.

    The larger ones have a real spring reverb, more power (1, 5, 15 watts) and greater control capability.

    I'd love to hear the 8 incher. I bet it is super sweet!
