A good customer of mine has a small collection of old Silvertone amps. The cabinet for one of his 1482's was basically toast so I built him a nice reproduction cabinet. Unfortunately I cannot find any original tolex so we went surfing and did Seafoam green and Oxblood grill cloth. I increased the depth of the cabinet so any speaker will fit in it with the back on and the whole thing is made from nice 1/2" birch ply and will last for decades of use with no issues at all. Contact us if you have something custom in mind!!
My Derelict Scarlett Scout Chief is reporting for duty.
This was a Hot Rod Deville that came into the shop for repair along with a few other Hot Rod series amps. The baffle board was detached, the bottom was falling off, there were no tubes in it, the circuit board had a big hole blown in it, it was missing a speaker, no handle, all the chassis screws were stripped or missing, the back was falling off and the owner wisely decided to not sink $3-400 into it. I made him a fair offer on the carcass and applied it towards the repair of the other amps.
I have spent many hours fixing the structural issues and building a new Scout circuit inside the old ugly shell and it sounds awesome now!
