The Silvertone 1484 Twin Twelve was 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.
These amps are famous for their nice smooth overdrive but they’ve also got a sweet clean tone at lower volumes.
These amps have recently surged in popularity because of their use by Jack White, Beck, and anyone else who wants great tone. 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. The sexy, cold war era styling is just the beginning.
