In the early 1930s, a merger between Dobro and National led to the formation of Supro and Valco, with the latter building amplifiers that carried the Supro name. Supro amps became popular with blues players on the south-side Chicago scene, and by the mid ’60s Jimi Hendrix was playing through a Supro Thunderbolt during his stints with Little Richard and the Isley Brothers. A few years on, Jimmy Page was getting some of his classic Led Zeppelin tones in the studio with a customized Supro 1×12 combo.
