SOLD! - 1961 Gibson GA-8T Discoverer Tremolo 12" Jensen Combo
Link Wray in a box!!
Cool and rare original 10-WATT 1961 Gibson GA-8T Discoverer Combo with Tremolo that sounds like Link Wray's "Rumble"
This little beast can sound somewhat in between a 60’s Marshall on 11 and 50’s Fender Princeton and has nearly the same layout as the Fender Princeton Brownface as well! And all that for not even 1/2 the price...
And yes: it can sound nice with clean, crisp tones and a lovely tremolo on top. But thats not why you buy this amp. You want this amp because you can push it into a loud raging bull with bags of grit and bite. Bad ass overdrive sounds from this little gem! But yeah, turn the volume down on the guitar and its a super smooth jazz box as well.
Now 10 Watt doesn't sound like much but this Class-A combo sounds surprisingly loud! Perfect for recording or small venue gigs, or mic' it up and you're boss!
Its pretty original including the hyper rare wooden foot-switch (!!) and bracket, transformers (currently there is a 230Volt transformer in there but the original 1961 110Volts Gibson GA-18 power transformer works perfectly and is included in the sale), 12inch Jensen Alnico speaker dated to 1961, pots, cabinet, grill-cloth, logo, covering, handle with dome Gibson logo etc.
