    Trace Elliott is pretty good about sending you schematics if you ask... I don't remember ever hearing of a Bonneville 30? 4 EL84 output?

    Now that's a rare! amp. I've got the tube list from 2000 and it's not mentioned. There's something called a Velocette Twin with 4 El84s, I wonder if they're similar (because the original Bonneville is not channel switching-it uses mechanical relays to completely reconfigure the preamp section for each of its 3 voices). Anyway, it's still worth emailing gibson to see if they kept any of the TE guys on... service@gibson.com

    Never heard of a Bonneville 30. As far as I am aware, the Bonneville was available as a 100W head or a 50W combo...now there was a Speed Twin 30 combo, which succeeded the Trident/Bonneville series, but in any case, try British Audio Service for a schem--Gibson will probably send you to them, anyway...

    In the UK, try GM Audio Serivces. They advertise schem. availability.
