Re: silvertone conversion
While I have a slightly higher opinion of Silvertone amps than most(They sound great and can be a reliable stage amp depending on the situation), I agree that if you feel the need to convert one to el-34's, you need to get another amp. The Transformer MAY handle the filament current but IMHO you have many, many easier options to mod the amp that require much less expense and effort. If you read all these posts advising you not to do this and still feel the need, I know where you can get a 1485 (4 opt tube) power transformer that will handle the current. (Its still attached to the amp BTW)
