Another rare meeting of sister combos. A couple of months ago it was meeting of the giants, the 6 x10" combos.This time, a nice pair of Supro - Valco amps in for service from two owners. Both are original and have never been serviced. I have a feeling that it's going to be a Supro Day.

My back hurts just looking at that pic.

I wonder what what the point is of that handle on the top of the AIMS. "They Might Be Giants" sig version?

I had a Super Six. It did fit in the trunk of my 1965 Dodge Polara.

I couldn't get it into the trunk or back seat of my 1977 Plymouth Volare Road Runner.

It stayed with me until the mid eighties, then got sold. I do miss that amp.

Hell, your 77 Volare could probably fit in the trunk of your 65 Polara!:D

The owner is a 7' 6" retired basketball pro and likes the handle on top.;)
In reality, the amp has a set of casters on the back corners mounted just up off of the bottom.The amp tilts back on to the casters.... the handle/caster system works really well. Kinda' like a big piece of very loud 'tote luggage'.

The Polara trunk held either 21 or 22 cases of beer that came in the old stubby bottles. It took a little planning but was worth it on a May 24 weekend.

Now that is what was most impressive about that car.

I had a super six. I used to put it on my Porch and totally crank it and play zep and AC/DC riffs for the neighbors. I was a nice neighbor wasn't I! Heck it was daytime!! 85 watts!
Ha! funny you should mention this sambonee. I have a posting up for mine and part of the description reads as follows.....

"Anyone looking for a good practice/bedroom amp specifically built to "piss-off-the-neighbours" here it is.... A '74 Super Six Reverb with push pull master vol."
