    So I found this Danelectro reverb in the back of a closet. I wasnt sure what it is. My guess is a guitar amp? From the 60s. Wish I could the guitar to go with it. But still pretty cool. Not sure what to do with it. Its now in my closet. It has a case to go over it.

      Hello! This company was founded by Daniel Nathan in 1947 in New Jersey.
      There specialty was guitars and amps.
      They mostly made there products for Sears&Roebuck and The Montgomery Wards stores.
      They sold the company to the MCA company, however, they stopped producing in 1969.
      In the 1990s another company picked up the line making copies, mostly for import.
      A great find in the closet! It is 1960s.
      This device plugs into an amp to give more reverb effect in sound.
      A few of these are high dollat today!!

      Have a great Day!!
      Thomas.

      Cool effects box! There is definitely a market if it fires up and works.

      By the size/age of that box, I'd guess it has a component inside called a "spring reverb tank" to make it work. If so -- *be somewhat careful* handling it -- those things are prone to damage if subject to being bounced around too much.

      Further to Thomas' info, a player would plug their electric guitar into this box, then the box into the amplifier. Any odd guitar/amp combination (+ 1 extra cord) would be able to test it to find out if it still functions, if so it will add an "echo" effect to the sound. I also agree w/artfoot, lots of guitar players are fond of using 'vintage equipment' nowadays... ;-) :-)

      I was very careful with it, bringing it over to my house. The lady who owned the house I got. Loved music. I found two banjos, a organ, a box for an accordian, at least 10 old radios. 4 record players. Hundreds of records. As well as lots of sheet music. Who know if i'll find anything else. Was hoping to come across the accordion. I got excited when I seen the box I knew what it was. I opened it only to find it full of records. Waaa
