Dan Armstrong Amplifier, mod "Dan 1" schematic

Posted by Humberto Martins on Mon, 05/05/03 - 00:39:09.

Hi

I'm looking for a Dan Armstrong Amplifier, mod "Dan 1" schematic. made in England by Electronic Manufacturing Co. (Uk) Ltd., and distributed by Boosey and Hawkes (Sales) Ltd.
It's a tube amplifier, 30 watt. The amplifier uses sliders instead of potentiometers. The sliders are set up like a graphic equalizer, one octave from 62 to 8K. There are two channels, with one input per channel and one volume slider per channel. Internally, the amplifiers utilize two EL34 output tubes. The circuitry utilizes a transistor preamp, but to warm things up, the amp also uses an ECC83 driver tube.
Could you tell me were I can find it?

Thanks

Humberto Martins

Re: Dan Armstrong Amplifier, mod

I’ve found a source for Dan Armstrong amp schematics.

For a nominal fee, MAJ Electronics will send you a CD containing diagrams for 30W, 60W, 100W & pre-amp. I'm told that these are large files so not suitable for e-mailing.

For more info on Dan Armstrong amps and other vintage stuff, Google 'Plexi Palace' and check out their BB.

Re: Dan Armstrong Amplifier, mod

:Hi, I have a 30 watt combo, as you described, in good working order (albeit with a little hiss). It has not been used much for many years. Are you still looking to buy one? If so, get in touch. I am in Birmingham, UK. Regards, John

My friend also has a 30w combo wich also sounds really good!
I'm looking for some spare parts for my amp, i've located another in my hometown wich is broken but got some good parts i can use!!

Re: Dan Armstrong Amplifier, mod "Dan 1" schematic

: Hi Humberto
I don't know where you can BUY one of these amplifiers, but I have one sitting in my lounge. I've had it for 18 years and have had almost no luck in finding ANY information about it. If you could tell me more about it I would appreciate the information. I can well understand why you are after one - it is a great amplifier!!

Do you still have it?

Re: Dan Armstrong Amplifier, mod

Hi, I've just bought a 60W Dan Armstrong amp (Dan3) which isn't working. Did anyone ever come up with a schematic for the DA amp? If so, I would love a copy! As a matter of interest, I also have the matching Dan Armstrong 4x12 (Dan0)!
Cheers,
Andy
