Silvertone Amp Schematic
I'm looking for a schematic for a Silvertone Model 1449 Amp-in-case, amplifier. I believe these were made by Danelectro.

oooh,Dave, I would love that if you find it. Used to own one. Hated the guitar (not that it was bad, need a good set-up, just not my cup-of-tea), but I loved that amp. Someone was selling the chassis for one (I assume comeplete) here a few months ago, I didn't have the money for it at the time though.

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Is this amp a battery powered transistor unit, or is it a low-power tube thing like a table radio circuit?  
 
I see these cases at guitar shows, but never looked close to see if their was a power cord....just assumed it was transistor for portability. Can you fill me in?  
 
Thanks,  
Doc

It's a tube amp, which runs on wall current. It's about the same tube complement as a Fender Champ, with tremolo.

Hmm, mine didn't have trem.  
 
Unfortunately I owned mine before my interest in this stuf cam about, so, I don't even remeber which tubes are in it. There are there tubes, I think at least one is a 12A?7. They were all smaller tubes (no 6V6's or anything), maybe the power tube was a 6BQ5? Pure AC power though, I would say around 5 to 10 watts maximum. Really great blues raunch tone.  
 
There is a store around the block that had one for sale. Maybe I can get the owner/tech to pop it open, if he still has it.

The little I could find out over the phone with Action Music in Arlington, VA is that the tubes are:  
 
12AU6  
5OC5  
35W4  
 
Now, if I can ply him with enough liquor to crank the amp open...
