yeah so I found a Sears and Roebuck amp at a pawn shop for 10 bucks so I bought Has anybody ever seen one before for one thing and another thing is does anyone know where I can find out the date for the serial numbers? I tried their website. It looks like its from the early 70's so Imma keep it as a souvenir

That thing probably has a delightfully crappy tone. Jack White probably envies you. Nice find!

Great find. If you don't like it, just sell it to me and make a profit - I'd buy one for $50 plus shipping to New Zealand.

Didn't Jack White use one for some recordings?

Jack uses the Silvertone 6X10 combo amps live and I think recording. He might just use his Twin Reverbs to record. Great amps though, sounds like ripping cardboard.

well thanks everyone , my camera is broken right now but If you can tell me how to upload from my phone I'll post em. And yeah it works perfectly fine it actualy looks brand new from the front but the stickers in the back give away the age. Its a 200g model with only a volume, tone, and get this tremolo knob. and yeah the tone is pretty ****ty but when I put my keeley ds-1 through it,it sounds like a zeppelin type distorted tone.

Looks pretty sweet, it would suit some of the stuff I play, very messy, crappy-sounding blues. That's why I use my MG30DFX all the time. I can get some pretty dirty-fuzz tones out of it!


I also have a lack of a better amp... Shh... Nobody heard this...

Try and find a model number. If it's a 1484 or 1485, then it's a madly envied amp. The 1483 is also demanded but not to the same extent. None of the other models really have any significant following or demand.
