Sears Silvertone 1484 Amp & Head Piggyback

Made in the 1960’s by Sears as part of their Silvertone music equipment range,  the 1484 Amp and Head combo was fairly popular in it’s time and was now a classic contender for a vintage repair job at Open Ear Audio.

Like any old valve amp repair like this one,  this guy needed a lot of valve socket cleaning and retensioning. For a fairly cheaply made Sears amp, they have a pretty cool character, and with some love from our resident amp doctor Riah, it now has heaps of play left in it.
