Silvertone Model 1484 Twin Twelve 60-Watt 2x12 Piggyback Guitar Amp

Overview

Silvertone's 1484 Twin Twelve is a 60W 6L6-based tube amp, originally sold in a "piggyback" configuration through the Sears catalog from 1963 - 1967. Similar in sound and function to blackface Fender Bassman amps, but with additional features -- a strong, vibe-dripping tremolo and a reverb that...well...let's just say the reverb exists. At the end of the gig or session, the head tucks into the bottom of the cabinet for ease of transport. Here you'll find Reverb's current selection of 1484 Piggyback amps as used by the likes of Jack White and Beck.
