Danelectro Danoflex vibrato

Post by geoman » Mon Feb 22, 2021 12:40 pm

Has anyone got any experience with the Danoflex type of vibrato?? I think the designs of Nat Daniels are Brilliant to say the least!! I want to make a few of these and need some input. Are they stainless steel for one. How much pitch change etc. Anybody got one of these???

very weird. very little pitch change, methinks.
i assume the bent steel plate is the whole mechanism?
spring steel?
it seems like the mounting screws would take the brunt of the stress.

I've been to one World's Fair, a picnic, and a rodeo, and that's the stupidest thing i ever heard come out a pair of headphones.

Haven't found any info online. And I have installed a vintage Japanese trem on a Dano. Next phase is a hybrid design like this. But the one piece design just seems so amazing. Gotta Try it out!!
