Get your own Soldano ASTRO-20 from Guitar Center:



Built in the USA, the all-new Soldano Astro-20 is a compact 20-watt amp, available as a head or combo, offering up three-channels of celestial sound. Powered by a dual 6V6 output section, Astro-20’s four unique Galaxies serve up a wide range of tones, from crisp cleans to soaring leads. Additionally, its six on-board DSP-powered IRs can be used for silent recording or running straight into Front of House.

“The Astro-20 is a super-usable and technology-forward amp,” says Justus West. “This is the perfect amp for the modern day guitar player. Whether you’re going for clean tones or heavy metal tones, this amp can cover all of the things.”

Equally at home on-stage, in the rehearsal space or in the recording studio, the Astro-20 is your one-way ticket to limitless sonic exploration.
