Up for sale, a Gibson Goldtone GA-15 Class A tube amplifier in excellent condition and in perfect working order. A short-lived model, this amp is a product of Gibson's acquisition of Trace Elliot, and is a rebranded version of Trace's revered Velocette model. Made in the UK, this amp is a single channel affair driven by a pair of EL84 power tubes, with two 12AX7s in the preamp. The compact GA-15 features the simplest of controls: Volume and Tone knobs and a Bright Switch.A single input jack is high impedance and allows for perfect matching to both passive and active guitar pickups. With Class A cathode bias, the Velocette has the widest possible signal swing before the tubes are driven to cut-off or saturation.
This produces a tone that is progressively rich in harmonics and very touch-sensitive to your picking dynamics. Further features include an external speaker output which allows you to connect to an external 16 Ohm speaker cabinet for a bigger sound than the amp's 10 speaker can provide. This is useful for live and studio use, and it can radically change your sound!
Try it at a high volume into a 4x12 and you will not believe you are playing a 15 watt amp! When a plug is inserted into this jack the 10 internal speaker is disconnected. The amp is loaded with the original Celestion speaker, and the 12AX7s in the preamp are the original Trace Elliot branded valves. The amp shows only some minor scuffing on the enclosure, with a couple lifting edges on the brown tolex (very common with this series of amps), and a missing "N" on the Gibson logo on the amp's face.
