Product Description for the Marshall AS100D
For the acoustic player who wants it all, Marshall offers the comprehensively featured and powerful AS100D - a dual 50 watt, 2x8 inch combo with two high fidelity polymer dome tweeters. The Marshall AS100D has been specially created for use with a variety of acoustic instruments and boasts upgraded speakers conceived by Marshall's design experts in conjunction with Celestion.
Ample Connections For Any Acoustic Need
Between its four channels, this combo has the flexibility to handle instruments with piezo transducers or magnetic pickups as well as XLR microphones for both vocal and instrument reproduction. If you wish to use two pickups with a single stereo jack, the AS100D's two main Acoustic Channels can be linked together via the onboard Link switch, affording you independent volume and EQ control over each pickup. The other two channels are a dedicated mic channel and an auxiliary channel, which has RCA stereo inputs for easy addition of other audio sources such as stereos and mp3 players. The AS100D also houses an internal limiter to ensure you can achieve maximum output while your sound remains distortion free.
Built To Be Played Out
Even though the AS100D's dual 50 watt stereo configuration offers ample power for many typical acoustic music venues, its stereo pair of balanced XLR DI outputs and Line Outs allow players to connect directly to a PA system for larger rooms. When playing live, one of the most difficult aspects of acoustic amplification is avoiding unwanted feedback. To help deal with this, the AS100D features multiple anti-feedback controls, including individual phase switches on channels 1, 2, and 3, plus a pair of frequency controllable notch filters with selectable extra depth for channels 1 and 2.
Digital Effects to Broaden Your Sound
The superb quality of the sixteen built-in, adjustable digital stereo effects adds an entirely new dimension to the already-wide range of sounds the AS100D is capable of. From its 10 reverb tones to delay, chorus, and more, the onboard effects free players from the traditional restraints of acoustic performance. Additionally, there is a stereo effects loop, complete with level control, on the rear panel.
Compact and portable, the AS100D combo amp offers great flexibility and is an ideal amplifier for any acoustic player who wants the highest level of performance and absolutely natural tonal reproduction.
