OVERVIEW

A gorgeous retro 1x12 Marshall combo that delivers classic tube tone.

The Marshall Astoria Classic 30W tube combo is a single-channel amplifier that will appeal to purists who want loud, clean valve tone, and to boutique pedal enthusiasts who will find it the perfect pure-tube foundation for their sound via the 12-in. Celestion G12H-75 Creamback speaker.

The amp also features Power Reduction which can be accessed via the Master volume control, Edge control for controlling how dark or bright the overall tone is, and Sensitivity control to find that perfect bite.

The Astoria Series is about pure, unfettered vintage tone”from loud, unbroken clean to sublime saturation. Built for the connoisseur using precision point-to-point hand-wiring, Astoria is for the serious guitarist who craves authentic tone, but who also wants contemporary features. Astoria offers, across the series, footswitchable features such as: valve-driven FX Loop with independent level control, +20dB gain boost and dual channels, as well as tonal switching and modern power reduction.

To achieve the innovative marriage of authentic tonal character and contemporary features, the Astoria Series uses turrets mounted on the PCB, allowing the hand-wiring and more complex switching circuitry to elegantly coexist on a single board. Please note: ALL of Astoria' tonal circuitry is point-to-point hand wired for quality and authenticity of tone.

Astoria' all-tube heart consists of 12AX7 in the preamp, GZ34 rectification and KT66 output stage, which is cathode biased and has no negative feedback.

The output and mains transformers are designed specifically for Astoria, and some of Astoria' pots use specially selected log tapers to be more balanced across their effective ranges.

Astoria also features Hi & Lo inputs, with the Hi input providing an extra 6dB of sensitivity”a characteristic of many classic, vintage amplifiers.

All three Astoria models are expertly crafted and are designed, engineered and constructed to the highest standards at the Marshall factory in Bletchley, England.

The Look
The Astoria Series look is unique, with a quirky œboutique flavor. The Astoria combos have their control panel on top of the cabinet, like vintage Marshall combos, with the Astoria heads being œsmall box design with a vintage-style œletterbox front panel.

The Astoria front panel has a stylish contemporary aesthetic: brushed aluminum, with quality switches and indicators. Combos and heads have a quality strap carry handle and color-coded, vintage-style œPlexiglas Marshall logo badge inspired by the rare oxblood logo badge used for a short time in the mid 1960s.

The three models are covered with colored vinyl: Blue for Dual, Red for Custom and Green for Classic all with a striking cream colored central stripe. The Astoria 1x12 speaker cabinet is available in each color to match.

    Comments about Marshall Astoria AST1C Classic Model 30W 1x12 Hand-Wired Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    You have to consider this is an amp that has the best use as a pedal platform , was looking for this for a long time , the Bass responce and highs frequency's are astonishing , just what i was looking for BUT..... you have to combine with some overdrive/distortion pedals , once you find the right ones , you never go back,absolutely love mine (Combo version)
