New! The Ultimate GA15 Mod Kit – Legendary 18 Watt Version

39.9549.95

This brand new kit, a further development from our classic GA15 mod kit, will convert your Harley Benton® GA15 into that legendary British 18 Watt amp from the 1960s!
The only differences with its 1960s examples are solid state rectification, resulting in a a bit more power, and the absence of a tremolo circuit.
The kit further features added presence and negative feedback controls. The presence control can be effectively eliminated from the circuit by setting the negative feedback to zero, however.
Pretty amazing, if we dare to say so, considering the bargain-bin prices of a GA15 and this kit, versus the price of a reissue! If the mods are performed well, the GA15s annoying hum is eliminated too. Finally, we fixed some minor issues with previous versions of the kit, such as potmeter knobs that didn’t always fit the shafts of the potmeters.
This is a carefully selected set of electronic parts, high quality tone capacitors (Mallory 150s and Silver Mica type) included. It comes with an elaborate instruction manual with plenty of photographs. To get an impression of it, you might want to scroll further down to view the manual of the classic GA15 mod kit. By default, the 18 Watt instruction manual will be sent to you by email. A full-colour print-out, is optional, however.
