Description: These little Silvertone’s were tragically overlooked for years and years but are now starting to get their proper due. These are fantastic small gig and recording amps because they are lightweight, reasonably loud, overdrive wonderfully when pushed and have a unique, square wave tremolo that sounds completely different from the Fender-style “vibrato”. This particular example is very close to being all original (even several original tubes!) and sounds strong and healthy. You need this amp in your studio!
