Every month or so someone will cart in a Sears Silvertone amp, which still kind of astounds me. When I was growing up one of my buds had a Silvertone guitar. It was a total piece of crap, so I always associated that brand with crap. I never knew anything about the amps, but now I see serious players using them, and they usually sound pretty rad. Anyway:

Some are. Some aren't.

As above.... some Silvertone amps are amazing. Some aren't
Same with the guitars... some have mojo. Some don't.

I'm not sure why they've become so popular lately... Canadian Traynor's are still pretty cheap. UK built Orange are underated and a few US builders are still under-valued as well.

Yep. I had a big sears amp in the late 70's that was good wattage but being solid state it had no soul and was as sterile as an operating room.

I have one that sounds sounds good with a little crackling noise that I picked up at flea market for 15 bucks.
