The 1485 was the most powerful tube-powered amp that Sears ever made available. At just a shade under 240 bucks, it was also the most expensive. For your money, you got everything that the Danelectro engineering department could bring you: reverb, tremolo, combo footswitch, ground switch, standby mode, spare 110v outlet, 10 tubes, 5 rectifiers... the only thing missing was an '11' on the volume dial. This amp was the MAX.
Jack White has given these amps popular exposure the past few years.

The 1485 was a monster sound machine. 120 watts pumping into 6
big 10" Jensen speakers. Rated frequency response was 40-20,000 Hz.
Style-wise, it had the cool 'stack' look that was becoming increasingly popular, and easy portability with a stowaway amp compartment and an easy-roll dolly.
