Thanks for the reply. Do you think its worth $500 in a trade?I have the Gibson Goldtone GA-15, which is the same amp. 1x10 configuration, two knobs, no tricks. I love this amp. Basically an AC-15 in a compact, portable package. Have gigged this thing a fair amount, whenever load-in or stage space was going to be a problem. I have a Greenback 10 in mine, just to goose the low end a bit. Velocette had some problems with exploding transformers & tube sockets early on -- but they haven't made them in 10-15 years so if it's working now, I expect you'll be all right. Great amp.
Take it! That’s one of the very few amps I’d kill to have back. I found one for $250 and should have never sold it. They sound amazing and on top of that look super cool.I have an opportunity to get a Velocette in trade. Anyone have any love for these? It’s between this and a Mesa Boogie Rocket 44, another amp I know nothing about, haha!
I haven't had a huge problem with this, except when I leave it on in the practice room for a week. Too easy to do with no light or anything on the front to remind you that then amp is on. I've taken to bringing the power cord with me in my gig bag, just to make sure the I don't do this.it ate tubes like nothing else I’ve had
living in the past, I think. there's exactly one of these on reverb for $600 and it's broken. it's a desirable little amp and reliability issues should have been put to rest by now -- they haven't made any for a while. with the plague premium I think it's ballpark.Couple hundred tops.
What people ask for on Reverb and what they get are two different things. $600 and broken?
