Gold Tone GA-15RV Guitar Amplifier
                 Model 1996
                    Made in Great Britain in memory of Steve Claxton

The GA-15RV
is part of the Gibson ‘GoldTone’ valve guitar amplifier range. It is a no nonsense, compact, purists valve guitar amplifier and has the minimum controls necessary to produce a good range of sounds, from clean to overdriven, into its single speaker.
The circuit topology has been based on traditional guitar amplifier designs, with new ideas incorporated where beneficial.
The main preamp and power stage sections are 100% valve. The valves used are two ECC83/12AX7’s and two EL84/6BQ5’s run in Cathode Biased Class A.
