8.5 of 10 Condition (some wear to the covering especially on the corners, some oxidation on the panel and some light wear to knobs)
The 1484, along with its mighty 6-speakered sister, the 1485, have become the in-demand Silvertone amps of the current era. Onstage and in the studio with Jack White, Beck, and others recently, the awesome and unique tube sound of the 1484 and 1485 proudly powers the punch of some of today's best rock.
The 1484 was a twin-twelve 60-watt amp boasting "clear, mighty sound!" The catalog listing advertised this amp for guitar or bass usage, and had all the amenities you could want in a medium sized (and priced) package: reverb, tremolo, two channels (bridgeable for even MORE crunch!).
Silvertone amps were manufactured by Danelectro for Sears and sold under the Silvertone brand. The 1484 features two 12″ Jensen speakers powered by a 12ax7 preamp and 6L6 power section. While the trashy sounding reverb may not appeal to everyone, the smooth drive to hard crunch will please just about any guitar player out there. They’re dynamic but also have this different vibe that encourages experimentation and creativity. These amps are famous for their nice smooth overdrive but they’ve also got a sweet clean tone at lower volumes. These don’t break up quite as early as the 1482 so there’s a little more clean headroom. The sexy, cold war era styling is just the beginning.
This 1484 has survived in excellent condition retaining all the original parts except for the added 3 prong power supply for safety.
