If you think you know Marshall, think again! The new Astoria series looks unlike anything else the company has made in its celebrated history. The Astoria Series look is unique, with a quirky ‘boutique’ flavour. This Marshall AST2H Astoria is an all-valve head that looks unique and sounds awesome.
The Astoria Custom is for tone seekers who want it vintage but with the convenience of contemporary features, such as: valve driven true bypass footswitchable FX Loop and independent Loop Level control, with added tonal shaping and footswitchable gain Boost.
The Body feature adds girth to your sound for chunkier riffing. It works by adding a +8dB shelved low frequency boost from 120Hz downwards.
Footswitchable Boost increases the amount of gain by +20dB for standout solo work.
The Brightness pull switch function gives extra sparkle and definition to your sound by providing a +6dB shelved high frequency boost from 4 kHz upwards.
The Power Reduction pull switch drops the amplifiers output power from 30 Watts to 5 Watts, which produces softer tones and a less in your face sound.
Edge makes the overall characteristic sound of the amplifier brighter or darker. To achieve this, it cuts high frequencies between the phase splitter and the power valves. Edge is a power stage function with a similar effect to a traditional presence control. Note that he higher the Master volume level, the more pronounced the Edge function will become.
The Astoria Custom features a footswitchable, valve driven FX Loop with Loop Level control, which balances the external FX level with the amplifier level. The FX Loop is true bypass, ensuring that tonal integrity is maintained when it is switched out of the circuit.
The Astoria Custom combo is loaded with a single 12 custom-voiced Celestion Creamback speaker.
