We have reinvented the Black Gold 5. The innards are now entirely point-to-point on a Garolite board (same as the Gerald Weber Signature amp).
A GZ34 rectifier tube was added which dramatically improved sustain. With the 10" Kendrick speaker, reverb, choice of hardwood canarywood cabinet or Tolex covered antique pine; this 5 watt wonder rips. It is fixed bias Class A amp with a single KT88 installed. The tube chart calls for a KT66.
You have never heard a better clean tone coming from a small amp. The overdrive is orchestral and rich with harmonics. Play your bridge humbucker with the amp set for overdrive and you might think you are playing through an octavia!
