Musikmesse 2015: Marshall Astoria Custom, Classic and Dual Amps
Marshall have unveiled the Astoria Series, which currently includes Custom, Classic and Dual models. All offer vintage tone, handwiring and modern power reduction.

The Astoria Classic is covered in green tolex, a single channel amp that has a loud and clean valve tone. Fans of boutique pedals will be able to achieve the ideal pure-valve foundation for their sound.

With a red covering, the Astoria Custom is also a single channel amp, for those looking for a vintage tone with but contemporary features. Pull switches shape the tone and there's a footswitchable FX loop and gain boost.

The Astoria Dual has two footswitchable channels, from vintage pure-valve cleans to dirty-sweet overdrive, to higher gain harmonic distortion. Extra performance flexibility comes in the form or the footswitchable FX loop and extended tonal shaping. The Astoria Dual is finished with blue tolex.
