FS UK: Soldano Astroverb 112 Snakeskin
« Thread started on: Feb 17th, 2014, 04:08am »
Soldano Astroverb 16 combo - used but in near mint condition in a spectacular snakeskin finish.This is an excellent amp, made even better by the replacement of the stock Eminence Legend speaker with a Celestion Heritage 55Hz G12H30 which brought it alive. I can ship the combo with either speaker but the Celestion is a huge upgrade which gives the amp greater clarity and authority and boosts the volume significantly. The Astroverb is surprisingly versatile, delivering everything from sparkling clean, through gritty breakup (think AC/DC or early 70s Stones) to fat, saturated distortion. £650 shipped in the UK. No trades, thanks.
Info from the Soldano website here:
The ASTROVERB 16 1×12 COMBO – Sonic detonation in a briefcase. This single channel dynamo packs the soulful crunch of its SOLDANO predecessors into a 1×12 combo. Two EL84 power tubes provide 20 watts of power to drive a USA made Eminence Legend-series 12″ speaker. The ASTROVERB 16 enjoys a far greater range of gain than most amps in its class. Tonal character – ranging from glassy clean, to gritty edge, to modern high-gain grind, are easily attained using the Preamp gain and Volume controls. Don’t let its diminutive size fool you, the ASTROVERB 16 1×12 COMBO is a pint-sized powerhouse with a big, big sound.
The ASTROVERB 16 1×12 COMBO controls include Preamp, Reverb, Bass, Middle, Treble, Volume and Presence. It has two speaker jacks, so you can use an additional cabinet if so desired. As with all SOLDANO reverb amps, the ASTROVERB 16 1×12 COMBO gets its twang from a tube driven spring reverb.
