  • Silvertone 1484, harmony 415, or supro thunderbolt ?

    Hey guys,

    Am thinking of buying a kit for a head for one of these.

    Want a versatile vintage tone style amp. Currently have a hiwatt 504OL and a hot rodded plexi.

    Which one of these would be more versatile ?
    Was looking at the supro thunderbolt, silvertone 1484 and harmony 415

    Please give your experiences and thoughts.

    A 1484 is probably one of the last amps I'd think of as versatile...

      Supro is about as simple as it gets.

      1484 were old catalog amps made popular by Jack White.

    In primary school when my friends discovered swearing, I thought &quot;I've never said the f-word before. I'm never going to say it&quot;. I wanted to say it when I got older (mostly because my friends would nag me about saying it), but I just didn't want to end the streak of not-saying it<br />
    <br />
    I ended up accidentally saying it to my girlfriend at the time. I said &quot;Someone told me that Ben got with a really fat girl and he titty-****************ed her&quot;<br />

    The '60s Danelectro made Silvertones and pretty damn good. The 1484 is the most well known thanks to JW. The 1483's make a great little poorman's 18W Marshall clone and the 1482's are just plain awesome.
