Re: Old Spring Reverb Transducers/Info,help needed
Thanks Doc  
I think tou're the first person to understand was I was trying to describe.  
The units are not in pristine condition but are in good and very good condition.  
They have been beatup a bit and collecting dust for years.The main reason for this was because of the Xducer thing.  
How about if I try and use a Piezo transducer fronm a sonalert type buzzer?  
Radio Shack sells many types of these in various sizes. I even built a cheap , yet good sounding pickup for my acoustic using a piezo from RS.  
The plans came from an article in Electronic Musician several years ago.  
I'm going to persue this route and see if I can create a substitute for this failed part.  
I'll let all know how it turns out.  
It will probably be a couple of weeks by the time i get around to it, But I'll post the results.  
Doc do you have any info on old Dano Amps.  
I have one of those too.  
It Has been fooled with a bit, some drill holes in the amp front.Th e cabinet is really beat up and made of mostly masonite type material.  
The grille cloth is shot to hell as well.The reverb tank is missing on this amp also.  
I am fixing this up as well and could use any info possible. I don't have the model number off hand but I will post it later. I will also try to draw  
up a schematic for the amp as I go along. It's not built like a Fender, it uses a buch of Terminal strips to mount the components.  
I did draw up a schematic for the Dano Reverb unit however.  
I will scan it and post it on the Web in the near future.  
Once again thanks Doc for the explanation of that xducer part.
