Simple Design

Equipped with two Celestion Vintage 30 speakers, the Artisan 30 offers a flexible function, as well as a vintage tone. Achieving the perfect sound is easy with its choice of controls including a 5-way Bass Shape switch, 2-way Voice switch and Master Volume.

Triode & Pentode Modes

Featuring two channels and two different modes, players can have more flexibility and achieve a variety of tones. The triode mode, players can achieve a round, bluesy tone with a mellow top end, perfect for laid back soloing. The triode mode also delivers more saturated distortion tones at lower output levels, which makes it ideal for recording and home practice. The Pentode mode offers a more dynamic feel, and is slightly louder, and punchier than the Triode mode.

Roadworthy Construction

The Artisan 30 is built to last a lifetime and effortlessly combines vintage style and rugged, road tested reliability. The point-to-point tag board construction, welded steel chassis and finger-jointed birch-ply cabinet are complemented by beautiful vintage red Tolex and etched aluminium panels.

With the emphasis on simplicity and sonic purity, every feature has been refined to provide the artist with the widest range of reference vintage tones.
