Marshall AST3H Astoria Dual Head

The Astoria Dual, with two footswitchable channels, goes from vintage pure-valve cleans, to dirty-sweet overdrive, to higher gain harmonic distortion. Combine this with 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 who also desires contemporary features and functionality. To this end, the Astoria Series features footswitchable Channels, gain Boost and series FX Loop, with push/pull tonal switching and power reduction.

To achieve this innovative marriage 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.

The Astoria Series is expertly crafted and is designed, engineered and constructed to the highest possible standards at the Marshall factory in Bletchley, England. Astoria’s all-valve heart comprises of an ECC83 (12AX7) preamp, GZ34 rectification, and a KT66 output stage, which is cathode biased and has no negative feedback – a characteristic of many classic, vintage amplifiers.

The Astoria Series consists of three models, each available as a 30 Watt combo or head and a matching 1 x 12” speaker cabinet. The combos and the speaker cabinet are loaded with a custom-voiced 75 Watt Celestion Creamback speaker.

The Astoria Series look is unique, with a quirky ‘boutique’ flavour. The Astoria combos have their control panel on top of the cabinet, like vintage Marshall combos. The Astoria heads are a ‘small box’ design with a vintage-style ‘letterbox’ front panel.

The front panels have a stylish contemporary aesthetic: brushed aluminium, with quality switches and indicators. Combos and heads have leather strap carry handles. All Astoria amps and cabs feature colour-coded, vintage-style ‘Plexiglas’ Marshall logo badges inspired by the rare ‘oxblood’ logo badge used for a very short time in the mid ‘60s, and are covered with coloured vinyl: Blue & Cream for Dual, Red & Cream for Custom and Green & Cream for Classic. The Astoria 1 x 12” cab is available in each colour to match.
