dano twin twelve model 300 series F

does anyone know what ohms this amp is? i need to replace the speakers. any suggestions?

the amp is at 8ohm and it

the amp is at 8ohm and it shiped stock with two 4ohm 12" running in series. some years had jenson field coils, some had fisher alnico, and some had jenson alincos. all of varying models
hope that helps

just a general comment

wanted to say to all those people that are looking for dano related things, contact chance mcfadden. his info is posted on here several times. had several dealing with him over the years and not once was i disappointed. so hey people like i said before if ya need something dano related just hit him up if he doesn't have it he can get it and his prices might be a bit more than gc or other similar places but the service that you get from him is top notch and it more than makes up for the small price difference.

dead on 67 bridge

hi as any one got any tips for repairing a bent bridge on my 67 i beleve its a common proplem.

dead on 67 bridge replacement

For anyone that might find this useful:

I replaced the stock bridge with the chrome SB5800-010 adjustable Dano bridge. I don't use a trem arm and this works good for use as a hard tail. Better sustain and tone. One small catch is that the string spacing is very slightly different but it still works. Also RE: the ridiculous faux aluminum control cover that gets scratched up. I took one of those green kitchen scrubbies and scrubbed the silver off. Its now black and looks better.

HELP PLEASE! i would love to hear the ol 9100 sounding like it should

Dano is notorious for

Dano is notorious for laughable reverb in their amps (sounds sort of like a ufo sitting two dimensionally on top of your tone and usually cutting signal significantly). not sure about their reverb units outside of their amp design though.

information on model f twin twelve amp

hi there i just won a danelectro twin twelve model f series amp. i was wondering what kinds of things that i could be told about this amp so i know what to expect. i basically got it because it was in need of a louder amp than what i was playing with ( a newcomb e10 b head and speaker) and wanted more than one speaker... i know there is a lot of stuff about the silvertones that have pretty much the same power, etc... but besides the way this is set up (in combo form) is there anything else that i should know " i am more about function over form ... this is one of the reasons i went with this amp (not that i don't like the form). i know that that reverb does not work on it.... is there something i should/ could do to research this type of problem prior to getting the amp?

MORE AUTHENTIC PAGE DANELECTRO, and beyond the infinite

Hello again...

Still very happy with the Page "Dano" I found back in '01, yet still on the lookout for a more authentic vintage model (black, two pick- ups, white seal-shaped pick guard, "out of phase" feature, as well)...

I did find a Jerry Jones "Dano" which is more like Page's (black, seal-shaped white pick guard, not to mention a very sophisticated bridge, yet, sadly, no feature to throw it out of phase)...

Any tips, leads, or trivia are/is most welcome...

Dating Danelectro Leader amp

How do I determine manufactured date on Danelectro Leader amp?

Re: Dating Danelectro Leader amp

: How do I determine manufactured date on Danelectro Leader amp?

I just acquired a Danelectro Leader- The octal plug preamp tubes indicate early 50's or older, and the speaker date code (285402) would indicate that the speaker is a Rola (285) made in the second week of 1954 (4=year, 02=week). So mine was made sometime after the second week of 1954. If your speaker appears to be original, read the date code and compare it to the speaker code list at www.webervst.com . I am looking for a schematic for this amp. Anyone got one?
