The Supro brand name was introduced in the 1930s by the Valco company who made a range of Supro amplifiers, electric, acoustic & lap steel guitars as well as a range of accessories. Valco merged with Kay Musical Instrument Company in 1967, but this new company quickly went out of business in 1968 and the Supro brand was discontinued.

In 2013 Absara Audio LLC, owner of analog effect brand Pigtronix, aquired the Supro trademark from former Fender amp designer and Pigtronix associate, Bruce Zinky who was retained as a design engineer. They built a new factory in Port Jefferson Station, NY to make a line of USA-made, vintage-inspired Supro tube amplifiers.  As well as the new range of amplifiers they also introduced a new series of Supro electric guitars and effects pedals.
