Silvertone 1484 Twin 12 Tubes

29 05 2011

Lots of tubes in this beauty. The tall silver object to the left is a cap can but to the right is an 6CG7, three shielded 12AX7’s and another 6CG7.

Why didn’t all amp manufacturers print the tube requirements directly on the chassis like this?

Output tube and phase inverter sockets.

Sylvania made 6GC7, RCA made 6L6 and Phillips made 12AX7/ECC83 tubes.  Simply beautiful.

1484 Twin 12 Speakers

5 05 2011

The cabinet come loaded with two 12 inch Jensen speakers.  The fairly large negative space at the bottom of the cabinet accommodates the amp’s head.

Lots of markings on the Jensen speakers. Do the 98 and 96 denote SPL ratings?

It’s a wonderful feeling to look for the first time at the back of an amp one is considering buying and seeing this label. I love the sound of Jensens.

Jensen C12Q speakers, dated from the 22nd week of 1965. These were used in a lot of Blackface Fenders and came as the stock speakers to the 1484.
