    I finally got my old Silvertone 1483 going. I had to put a rectifer tube in and a capacitor. First time I have played it since the 80's. it only is 40 watts but the 15 inch speaker does have a great tone. If you like the old school sound. I was wondering if anyone else has a silvertone amp and what do you think about it. WHat is so neat it has 2 channels and 4 inputs.

    case" in the closet (for when I get motor-vated :rolleyes: ).

    Thanks for the link. I bet your B-15n has a nice sound.
