To insure proper ventilation always make sure there is at minimum four inches (101.6mm) of
space behind the rear of the apparatus. The ventilation should not be impeded by covering the
ventilation openings with items, such as newspapers, tablecloths, curtains, etc. Do not impede
ventilation by placing objects on top of the apparatus which extend past the rear edge of its

2.1
Anatomy and Usage
Front Panel
IN
Instrument input for the amplifier.
VOL
Controls the volume level of the amplifier.
TREBLE
Controls the amount of treble frequencies.
BASS
Controls the amount of bass frequencies.
VERB
Controls the volume level of the spring reverb effect..
SPEED
Controls the speed of the tremolo effect.
DEPTH
Controls the depth or the amount of throb in the tremolo effect.
STANDBY SWITCH
This turns on the high voltage to the tubes. The tubes should warm up for at least one minute before
turning standby switch to OPERATE. Be sure that the Volume control is set to a reasonable position
before switching the amp to OPERATE as this amp can be very loud! For short breaks (5 minutes or
less), using the standby switch will increase tube life.
PILOT LIGHT
This shows that AC Mains voltage is flowing to the amplifier.
POWER SWITCH
Turns on AC power to the amp. The Power switch should be turned on, and the pilot light should be
lit for 1 minute before turning the standby switch to OPERATE.

2.2
Rear Panel
SPKR
Speaker output for the amplifier. Maximum output is 50 Watts into 8 Ohms.
TREMOLO/REVERB FTSW
Allows remote shutoff of the tremolo and reverb effects via latching footswitch, using a 1/400 TRS
cable. You can also use a Single Footswitch with a 1/400 TS cable to control either the reverb or
the tremolo. With the cable pushed in all the way, the footswitch will allow remote shutoff of the
Reverb only and the Tremolo will ALWAYS be Off. With the cable pushed in half way, the Reverb will
ALWAYS be On and the footswitch will allow remote shutoff of the Tremolo only.
EXT SPEAKER JACK
An extension speaker jack allows the player to connect an extension speaker cabinet to the Titan with
a 1/400 speaker cable, such that the Titan will power both the internal speaker and the extension
speaker cabinet. The impedance of the extension cabinet must be 8 ohms.
IEC POWER CORD RECEPTACLE / Fuse holder
The power cord connects here and to your country’s appropriate wall outlet. Make sure to connect
the male end of the IEC POWER CORD into a Grounded Power Outlet. This IEC connector contains
the AC Mains fuse. This is a 5x20mm, 2.5A, 250V Fuse.
2.3
Setting Tones
The preamp found in your Supro Titan is designed to provide a variety of sounds from clean to mean
and everything between. Begin by setting the volume knob to 9:00. A good starting point is to set
BASS, TREB and VERB controls to 12:00. Adjust the TREB and BASS controls accordingly to dial
in the desired tone.
The spring reverb effect has been voiced to surround the player’s notes without making the player’s
tone sound muddy. The VERB control gives the player a wide range of sounds from subtle to huge
and cavernous. Adjust this control to taste.
The Titans power tube tremolo modulates the amplitude of audio signal coming from the preamp,
both dry guitar tone and reverb signal. The tremolo gives a unique asymmetrical rhythm and the
depth is dependent on how hard the power amp is being pushed.
Supro amps are some of the most dynamically sensitive guitar amplifiers ever designed. The player
is able to access a myriad of sounds within this amp by turning the amp volume up to the point of
glorious overdrive and simply controlling the strength of the signal right from the volume knob on the
guitar.

Tubes
Each Supro tube amplifier is a 100% analog, 100% tube amplifier. There are NO solid state (transistor)
devices in ANY audio signal path.

Troubleshooting
Supro products have been designed for years of trouble free service. There are many unique protection
features to the design. If you are having difficulty, check the following:
No sound, but PILOT LIGHT is ON
Check to see that the speaker is plugged into the SPEAKER JACK (not the footswitch jack). Make
sure all knobs are turned up past zero and that the standby switch is set to operate. As this is a tube
amp, the tubes take approximately 1 minute to warm up before you will get sound. The STANDBY
switch should be set to standby for this warm up period.
No sound and the Lights are All OFF
Unplug the power cord and check the T2.5A250V fuse (rear panel).
