Silvertone is a company that never actually produced or had a factory to build amplifiers (or guitars). Amplifiers were made by the Danelectro company, which also produced solid-body guitars for Silvertone. Silvertone was the brandname for Sears and Roebuck that was used between 1941 and 1970. The acoustic instruments and other guitars were usually made by Harmony, Valco, and Kay. Silvertone amps for the most part were made by Danelectro. Since Silvertone amps were typically sold out of the Sears and Roebuck mail order catalog, they were entry-level models. Silvertone guitars were known as house-brand instruments, and amplifiers can be thought of in the same way. Danelectro closed its doors around 1969, and naturally all amplifier production was finished. Silvertone was terminated after Sears and Roebuck stopped selling their instruments and amps in the catalog. In the early 2000s, Samick revived the Silvertone trademark with a new line of guitar amplifiers and guitars. For more information visit Silvertone's website or contact them directly.
