    Any one have any experience with a Neptune? I found one priced right just never heard 1. I had a dual tone and couldn't get happy with the single tone control. Thanks for any input.

    I haven’t, sorry.
    But if you’ve already been unhappy with a Supro, I would say: try before you buy. Every amp manufacturer seems to have quite a signature tone IME.

    I've always loved my early sixties gretsch amp made by supro.
    I'm not sure how much that reflects their current design, but they seem to try to emulate classic 60's supro amp tones.

    Check out Vintage 47 amps. Get you some great supro/Valco tones.

    my avatar is my Vintage 47 1955 Twin Supreme. Coolest amp I have.

    I've always wanted to try their Chicago Triple. Someday I will buy their reverb tank, too.

    you can plug straight into the amp and get wonderful tone. I got a VanAmp real spring reverb pedal. That is the only pedal I use with my 1955 twin Supreme
