The 1472 and 1482 amps were unique amongst Silvertone amps. No other amp had vertically mounted front controls (and a vertical amp chassis to go with it), zigzag knobs, or a 'partner' bass amp that looked very similar (the 1473). This amp has always looked like a TV set to me, and with the one-eyed monsters ascendancy in the early '60s, the comparison makes a lot of sense.
