Any of you guys have experience with this amp? I might be looking for a small bedroom amp in the near future and I've always been intrigued by the Supro 1605R. It might be the only 1x8 USA made amp with onboard spring reverb I know of. Is it a pedal friendly amp? How much clean headroom does it have?

Have not owned one but it's definitely on my "interesting" list.

They make some very nice sounding amps (I had a 1600 Supreme) but, I don't think they are known for their headroom.

Hmm, I see. Maybe I could go with a Fender Custom PRRI 12 Watt instead if there’s not enough headroom

Had an old 1605r, reverb was terrible, like slightly better reverb than a silvertone 1485, otherwise a cool amp. Decent enough headroom for a smallish amp but I think it had a 10"
