Marshall debuts at Musikmesse 2015 the new Astoria series vintage-style all-tube guitar amplifiers that features three combos.

The three new Marshall Astoria Classic, Custom and Dual amps feature point-to-point hand-wired all valve circuits. Despite their vintage inspiration, they benefit from modern features, including an effect loop, push/pull tone switch and power attenuator.

Marshall used ECC83 preamp tubes, GZ34 rectifier tube and KT66 models for the power stage with cathode bias and without negative feedback, just like on vintage amps.

The Astoria Classic is a single-channel combo with a very classic design and sound ; the Astoria Custom is also a single-channel model with a vintage sound but you’ll find footswichable tube effect loop and gain boost as well as tone pull switches. Last, the Arturia Dual has two footswitchable channels, with a range or clean, smooth overdriven and high gain distorted sounds. A footswitchable effect loop and tone switches are also available on this model.

 

Each model will be available in both 30W head and combo versions and a 1×12” cabinet will complete the offer. The combos and cabs will be equipped with 75W Celestion Creamback speakers. Marshall followed the vintage spirit in every detail, including brushed aluminum control plates, leather handles on the heads and combos and a vintage-style Marshall “Plexiglas” logo inspired by the “Oxblood” logo used during a short period of time in the mid-60s on all models.

The Astoria Classic will be available in vinyl Green & Cream finish, the color chose is Red & Cream on the Astoria Custom and Blue & Cream on the Astoria Dual. The cab will be available in the three colors to match the heads.

The amps are manufactured at the Marshall factory in Bletchley, UK. They will be available this summer. More info at www.marshallamps.com.
