    I bought this Silvertone cheap at a flea market years ago. I replaced the torn up grill cloth with fuzzy leopard print because Rod Piazza had one like that. I replaced the filter caps but I really need to break into it and clean up the sloppy job that I did. The mic is an old Turner that I cut off the old desk stand and replaced the bad element with a nos Turner ceramic element. All in all, it sounds pretty good, in a small room anyhow.

    1951/52 Model 1346 Silvertone 50 Watt Guitar Amplifier with two Rolo 12 inch Voice Coil Speakers and a Tube Tremelo. Just finished rebuilding it , web info. Says Dan Electro made it for Sears Silvertone and that it was the top of the line amplifier at Sears in 1951/52. This amp uses 6Y6 G tubes for the tremelo and I put two vintage Tung Sol Jan CTL 6L6/5881 tubes in it and a Tung Sol Rabbit Ear 6SN7. 5U4 rectifier, 6SJ7 and 12SJ7 . The metal 12SJ7 is a little microfonic up loud and it needs to be replaced with a glass tube instead but This thing sounds very good !

    I designed it after an old Art Deco radio.
    I had my friend John Mergili build it.
    The amp came out sounding so good John Mergili keeps asking me to build another . Really good sounding Harmonica amps are very different from most guitar amps.
    Solid finger jointed pine, hot hide glue.
