Silvertone model 1485 100 watt tube head in Brooklyn NY for $350

Everybody is on the hunt for these amps theese days and here is one available right in NYC for only $350.

BTW, in addition to the standard horde of guitar fiends who like these amps they also sound very cool when you run a vintage combo organ through them. A big part of the sound of those old Vox and Farfisa organs was the tube amps they used.

The 1485 was the most powerful tube-powered amp that Sears ever made available. At just a shade under 240 bucks, it was also the most expensive. For your money, you got everything that the Danelectro engineering department could bring you: reverb, tremolo, combo footswitch, ground switch, standby mode, spare 110v outlet, 10 tubes, 5 rectifiers... the only thing missing was an '11' on the volume dial. This amp was the MAX.
Jack White has given these amps popular exposure the past few years.

Works Great.
vibrato only works on second channel. has normal wear for a vintage amp. sounds amazing.
if this posting is still up, the amp is still available

  1. One thing that I remember about this amp (the guitar player in my second band had one) is that they blew output tubes like mad if you actually had them up to '11'. He was down about 50% of the time because the amp was being repaired. Good amps, but the design was a bit out on the ragged edge of what the tubes could actually handle.


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
