Gibson Super "Goldtone"
At home Scotty also has a Gibson Super Goldtone
The GA-30RV' has an unusual combination of 10" and 12" speakers resulting in a uniquely well balanced voice, with great punch and definition from the smaller driver and a warm, developed low end from the larger.
The complete signal path; preamp, effects loop, reverb and power stage,
on all Super Goldtone models is 100% valve. Porcelain valve sockets and
gold plated jack sockets are used exclusively throughout.
The switching circuitry for the different functions is all based around
momentary switches controlling CMOS logic devices which then switch
relays or FETís within the audio circuitry. This provides very low
switching noise, excellent sonic performance and the ability to switch
all the functions from multiple sources.
All power and output transformers and chokes are custom made for maximum
performance using high grade laminations. Windings are resin soaked and
made to pass international approvals. A highly regulated DC supply is
used for heater filaments in all preamp valves for minimal hum levels.*
The GA30RV features Two independent Input Channels;
Passive and interactive treble, middle and bass tone controls for each
channel, Preamps and power stage 100% vale, Class! four EL84 power
tubes; 1 x 10" and 1 x 12" Celstian Vintage speaker;
