Details

The new Astoria Series by Marshall is expertly crafted, designed, engineered and constructed to the highest possible standards at the Marshall factory in Bletchley, England. The Astoria all-valve heart comprises of a ECC83 (12AX7) preamp, GZ34 rectification and a KT66 output stage, which is cathode biased and has no negative feedback; a characteristic of many classic and vintage amplifiers. Also included is a custom-voiced 30 Watt Celestion Creamback speaker. The AST3C Dual features two footswitchable channels, going from vintage pure-valve cleans to dirty-sweet overdrive, to higher gain harmonic distortion. These features are combined with a footswitchable FX loop and extended tonal shaping for added performance flexibility.

The new Astoria Series has been built not only for the sonic connoisseur who craves hand-wired, point to point, all valve tone, with world-class build quality and attention to detail, but also desires contemporary features and functionality. To achieve this innovative combination of authentic tonal character and switching 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.

Marshall have designed this series of amps with a unique look, a quirky 'boutique' style. The control panels are located on the top, like many vintage Marshall combos and have a stylish contemporary aesthetic of brushed aluminium with quality switches and indicators. Both the combos and heads have a leather strap carry handle with colour coded, vintage-style 'Plexiglas' Marshall logo badge inspired by the rare 'oxblood' logo badge used for a very short time in the mid '60s.
