Designed to bring vintage Marshall Amplification tone to your electric guitar, the Astoria Dual AST2H is a tube-driven, dual-channel 30W RMS amplifier head capable of powering 4-, 8-, or 16-Ohm external cabinets. It offers two channels, one for clean tones and one for overdrive, with the option of utilizing a pull-knob or an included footswitch to change between the two. In addition to its three-band EQ, the AST2H features an edge control for presence and several pull-knobs to expound further upon tonal versatility: Pull-Body thickens your sound by adding a +8 dB shelved low-frequency boost at 120 Hz and below, while Pull-Power reduction reduces the total output from 30W to 5W, thereby enabling you to produce softer, warmer tones.

Two separate instrument inputs—one high and one low—provide flexibility in dealing with different types of pickups, and an effects loop located on the rear-panel allows you to patch in your external gear, should you want to. Furthermore every element of the turret board has been handwired in England's Marshall factory to ensure the most efficient signal path. A footswitch, power cable, and dustcover are included with this amplifier head.

Edge
This function regulates the high-frequency content of the power-amp stage, allowing for further tonal shaping
Multiple Connections
The AST2H features 5x 1/4" speaker jacks wired for 4-, 8-, and 16-Ohm cabinets, as well as a 1/4" footswitch input
Built-In Effects Loop
A 1/4" effects loop, complete with true-bypass switch and level knob allows you to introduce external effects straight into the amplifier's routing
