Mail Order Twin (Silvertone® 1484)
Recorded using a Jackson Soloist with a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge position. Default amp and cab settings, spring reverb added.
This amp has a great, rich, textured clean. It has the distinctive warm, dark sound of all great Danelectros, but it has the ability to get treble and chime in a manner that no other Dano model I’ve played through does.
It’s a standard two channel amplifier with Reverb and Tremolo on channel two. The knobs are interactive, so you can thicken your tone just by playing with the knobs on channel one while you’re plugged into two. Or, you can add significant thickness and grit by bridging the channels with a jumper cable.
If you were to judge this amp on its clean tone and tremolo alone, it would be a keeper. But where it really shines and separates itself from the crowd is when the volume knob is up at Ten O’clock, or higher.
This is the best overdriven amp tone I have ever heard. Without pedals, this is one of the true stunning overdriven amps EVER. In fact, there are only a few amplifiers I’ve ever heard in its class for pedal-free overdrive.
The overdrive in a 1484 is rich and complex. Deep, driving and with a sweet, singing sustain. And it cleans up VERY well when you roll off the volume on the guitar. Really, there’s no amp I’ve ever played (or heard) quite like it for touch and response.

This patch is inspired by the tone of The Brothers Osborne's "Stay A Little Longer." The preset is based on the Silvertone 1484 (aka Mail Order Twin), a documented feature of the John Osborne live rig. I also recommend trying this out with a Fender DRRI (US Deluxe Nrm), as this is a slightly cleaner take on the tone.
