                 Velocette Twin GA-30RVS
15W+15W Stereo Class A Valve Guitar Amplifier
                          Model 1997
       Manufactured in The United Kingdom by:- TRACE ELLIOT LIMITED

Output Power per Channel 15 Watts RMS, 30 Watts Peack.

The GA-30RVS "Velocette Twin" 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 two speakers.

However, with the addition of such features as a switchable gain boost, stereo effects
loop, pseudo-stereo reverb, and a stereo power stage, the “Velocette Twin” GA-30RVS model takes the range as far as it could possibly go.

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 four ECC83/12AX7’s and four EL84/6BQ5’s run in Cathode Biased Class A stereo
(two EL84’s per side)
