Silvertone used to be a brand name for sound equipment produced by Sears, but the modern brand name is owned by Samick Music Corporation. Silvertone now represents a line of Silvertone beginners guitars, Silvertone bass guitars and amplifiers that are considered to be budget electric guitars.
Although Silvertone is a budget name that is really just using some of the former glory from the old brand name, the modern guitars are actually very well made especially when you consider their price tag. Many famous musicians started with a Silvertone guitar or bass guitar, so they have fond memories of this brand and still review it well.
If you have never owned or even played a bass guitar before, we highly recommend a Silvertone bass. This instrument is well built and will give you the opportunity to get familiar with the bass guitar without spending a fortune.
It is also an excellent choice for kids or teenagers that are interested in playing the bass guitar. It’s often hard to tell if young adults will retain an interest in any activity, so it’s a wise choice to not spend too much while maintaining a high quality purchase. Silvertone offers just that with their bass guitar kits and beginners basses.
Take a look through some of our model reviews below that will help you narrow you choice to a specific bass guitar. In general, a lot of Silvertone bass guitars and beginner’s kits are available for under $150-$200.
