I think I'm getting addicted to this vintage crap. This amp is almost as old as me!
This here's a Silvertone 1482.



Tube-alicious!



Awright, that's my self-congratulatory spam for today.

Really sweet, actually. It needs to be cleaned up inside. A little static-y, but the tone is there. Tremolo is real nice.

This one dates to the mid-late 60's. Got it from a local guy with a couple old Silvertone halfstacks for sale, too. I may go back. He also had one of those cool amps built into a guitar case! Little six watt tube amp along the lines of a Fender Champ.

Needs a complete looking over. I'm holding off going to a tech. I want to find a guy who'll let me look over his shoulder, or just get a couple books, a schematic, and have a go at it myself. I am an electric system operator, I should be able to figure it out!

...or die trying.

i love cheapo vintage stuff. its great,id much rather a Harmony from the 50's/60's than a bloody 59 Les Paul (by that i mean i wouldnt play the Les Paul,but id sell it)

I have a Egmond semi from the late 50's and i use it for slide.
I have a Dallas Arbiter Slider amp,its SS but sounds fantastic,thats prob 70's.
Also have a Teisco Checkmate 15 tube combo from '69 roughly.

they are all cheap as chips but i love the mojo from em.

CONGRATS TO YOU!!

This is only my second vintage goodie, but it's not for lack of trying. My eBay watch list is knee-deep in 30+ year old amps, and I've taken to hitting flea markets and garage sales on the weekeneds. I'm looking forward to the warmer weather for a new reason!

I wouldn't compare this one to any Marshall. It's really got it's own sound. My Model 45, made by Premier, has a real Marshall-y crunch to it, though. Two of the three tubes in that one are made by Mullard.

These things take pedals great, too. It's definitely cool running a Q-tron or a Fuzz Factory thru 'em. Sounds they just never expected to make.
