A few years back, we were asked to service three of Jack White's Silvertone 1484 amps. Many professionals love the 1484 sound but cannot rely on its build quality for reliable road use. Two of Jack's amps needed new output transformers, but we realized that there wasn't a suitable replacement on the market. We had our friends at Heyboer tear down the old transformers and replicate the design for us to add to the Mojotone catalog. Recently, we had a special request from Green Day's guitar tech, Bill Schneider, to make a road-worthy 1484 style amp in a Marshall® JTM-45 chassis. We loved the outcome so much, we decided we would share the results as the new Mojotone 1484 style amp kit. This new kit boasts the desirable Silvertone straight sound without the not-so-great reverb and largely unused tremolo. We packed it all into a British style chassis and head box which will offer years of roadworthy service.
Unlike most of our reproduction amp kits this is not an exact copy of the original amp. This is Mojotone's version of the Silvertone 1484 model where we removed the tremolo and reverb parts of the circuit from the original design.
