Burns of London

Orbit Three Reverb 3 x 10 Combo Amplifier

This was the top model in the Solid-State Orbit range, having an additional Reverb Dimension control on Channel One. The Reverb is a full-sized double spring, mounted in a Hammond tray.
Manufactured around 1963, Burns considered this to be a VOX AC30 killer due to its lighter weight and doubling of power to 60 watts.
This 2-channel amplifier also comes with an awesome sounding Tremolo with controls for Intensity and Speed.
Both Tremolo and Reverb are switchable via an attractive looking multi-foot button switch box.
Channel One’s Bass control is via a 6-way Selector switch that gives a large number of different sounds.
Channel Two has normal Bass and Treble controls together with a Volume control.
The 10″ speakers are the highly desirable Elac ANILCO speakers!
On the back there is a switch marked Studio / Boost; in Boost mode you have all the power in the world.
It has a very low Serial Number: 363
Voltage Selector: Switchable for 230VAC and 115 VAC
Internally and externally it looks very original, including the transformers. However, over the years minor service component changes i.e. caps, resistors, etc,. have been made. Therefore, since it is well over 50 years old and this is a private offer, I give no guarantee as to its longevity.

This is a Collection Only sale, there is absolutely no way I will post such a piece of vintage instrumentation.

Laney

GC-30V / VC-30 Valve Combo Amp 1 x 12

1990’s Laney GC-30V / VC-30 Valve Reverb Guitar Combo Amp 1 x 12.

This is one of the earlier GC-30V Laney’s that were built using the newer valve technology of the VC-30 rather than pure Solid-State and what an amp this has turned out to be.
It sports 4 x EL84 output valves and 3 ECC83 Preamp Valves. They all tested okay in a valve tester.
The loudspeaker is a classic from the past being an H-H 12” capable of handling 50Watts at 8 Ohms.
Fully serviced with all 8 control panel potentiometers and 2 rocker switches (Channel Switching and Normal/Bright) being replaced with brand new ones.
Control Panel Functions include:

  • 2-Channels: Clean and Drive
  • High and Low Input Sockets
  • Normal / Bright Switching
  • Channel Switching
  • Tone Controls for Treble, Middle and Bass
  • Reverb (Analogue)
  • Effects Level Mixing

Rear Panel Functions include:

  • Optional Dual Foot Switch for Reverb and Channel switching
  • Effects Loop Send / Return
  • Internal / External Switch for loudspeaker output.

This amp is definitely one to have in your collection.

Sound City

50W Plus Mark 4 Valve Head

This is an early one from its serial number 1811 and has been through a thorough full maintenance and service, thus ensuring an amp that is ready to go.
These amps have an Active Tone function, which means the Volume controls on their own will not produce any output unless the Tone controls are turned up to whatever desired setting of Bass, Middle and Treble is required.
There is a switch on the back for Sensitivity – This will select either a normal or gain output enhancement to the exiting Normal and Brilliant Channels having 2 x Input Sockets per Channel.
The 5 Diodes, which make up the Bridge Rectifier (4 off) and Bias have all been replaced.
Internally the 3 Trim Pots (2 x Bias + 1 x Sensitivity) have all be replaced along with any suspect component.
All filter and electrolytic capacitors have been replaced and a full complement of new JJ preamp valves (ECC83s) along with a balanced triode Phase Invertor valve (ECC81) has been fitted.
The output valves, which, once upon a time were a balanced pair of EL34s, tested A-Ok on a tester and remain in place with their Bias’ both being set to a mid 35mA having a Plate Voltage of 440VDC.
For purely safety reasons the mains voltage selector wires have all been tied back apart from the 245VAC for use in the UK.
The cabinet is in excellent condition and to top it all, it still has it original plastic protective cover – these just DON’T exist anymore!!!
Definitely a classic amp that is getting rarer by the month.

Male Jack Plug (Marked S) – For connection to Footswitch (not supplied).
Male Jack Plug (Marked A) – For connection into amplifier.

Case has seen some action, but is in reasonable condition for year.
