Vintage sears silvertone 1482 amp
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-12-11)
Price : US $318.00
This is a used Vintage sears Silvertone 1482 guitar amp made by danelectro for sears. I have replaced a few screws on the back with longer ones which hold the back face on better. I also have replaced the power supply cord which originally was only a two prong with a three prong power supply cord. I found that getting shocked by anything grounded such as a PA was annoying. This amp has all original tubes except the tremolo tube.
This Amp has a very nice clean tone and sounds awesome when it's volume is pushed to around 5 or 6. This is a very loud amp for it's 15 watt power rating. One could compare the sound to a clean fender amp of the era. It has very tight low end.
2 instrument inputs
1 microphone input
1 tone for each mic and instrument
tremolo effect with speed and strength knobs
a plug for a footswitch(not included)
The speaker is a 12' speaker which is a no-name type but still sounds great.
I've heard that this amp was one that jimmy page liked to use in the studio for recording. I also know that Harmonica players really like this amp too. I'm sure this amp would sound even better when some new tubes but it sounds great as is.
This item comes As-Is without warranty.
Thanks for looking.
