Up for Sale is a
Vintage 1964 Silvertone 1482!
All Tube Combo Amp! Made In USA!
This is really Cool. You are looking at a Vintage 1964 Silvertone 1482 All Tube Amp. Silvertone was the brand name that Sears was using for all of their musically related products in the 1960s including guitars, amplifiers, radios, record players and more. Sears would contract with another manufacturer to make products that they could then sell through their popular catalog. The Silvertone amplifiers manufactured by Danelectro in the mid-1960s have become the most popular among guitar players for their great tube tone and Cold War-era styling.
The 1482 is commonly referred to as a "TV" Amp because of it's size and shape to a 1960's Television set. This amp is often compared to the brown face Fender Deluxe however it's a completely different animal tonally. It's voiced a bit darker and seems to break up a bit earlier than a Deluxe from the same time period. The drive is more similar to a narrow panel tweed Deluxe.
This Amp has an upgraded 12" Eminence Speaker. Also, there is a Speaker out mod. It works like this: Plug the cable in and it works with the 12" Speaker. Or you can run a speaker cable from the amp to a speaker cabinet. I plugged it into a 2x12 cabinet here at the shop and it sounded AWESOME! It was a pure tonal vintage bliss of 15 Watts that broke up very nicely.
I have had a lot of these Silvertone 1482's. This is by far the cleanest one I have ever had. The tolex is in Pristine Condition. This amp is a great recording amp. All the Cool Retro Vibe and then some.
Cosmetics: Excellent Condition. Keep in mind that this is a 53+ year old Vintage Amp. The Tolex is in Excellent Condition. The Speaker cloth has been replaced. Dripping with "Mojo" It is used. Not perfect. Look at the pictures closely. They will tell the story.
