Soldano Astroverb 16 2×12 20 Watt Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier
If you like the idea of a low wattage EL84 driven amp, but want to move a little more air, the Soldano Astroverb 16 2×12 Combo may be just the amp for you! This single channel dynamo packs the soulful crunch of its Soldano predecessors into a unique 2×12 Combo. Two EL84 power tubes provide 20 watts of power to drive two USA made Eminence 12″ speakers. The Astroverb 16 2×12 Combo 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.
This amplifier is special. Because of the compact size of the Astroverb 16 chassis we were able to build this amp with an innovative vertical speaker orientation. This arrangement offers several distinct advantages that include: better bass response due to the “semi-closed back” cabinet configuration, easier access to the controls, and a smaller footprint – which makes life much easier when playing smaller venues. Other features of the Astroverb 16 2×12 Combo include Preamp, Reverb, Bass, Middle, Treble, Volume and Presence controls, as well as two speaker jacks so that you can use an additional cabinet if so desired. As with all Soldano reverb amps, the Astroverb 16 2×12 Combo gets its twang from a tube driven spring reverb.
