Believe it or not, the Marshall design team does not consist solely of metal heads, rockers, and blues lovers. Their critically-acclaimed, award-winning acoustic combos, the AS100D and the AS50D, are further proof of the diversity of expertise within the Marshall design team.
New for 2007, Marshall is proud to present the AS50D. Built upon the award-winning AS50R, this superb amplifier features a new tweeter, a phantom-powered microphone channel, digital chorus and reverb. The new AS50D allows you to express your emotions with passion.
This compact and highly portable combo features two channels, each of which has its own independent volume and tone controls. A variety of inputs give the AS50D the ability to handle all-comers: the high-impedance input on Channel 1 is perfect for piezo or magnetic pickups. Channel 2 boasts RCA phono inputs plus a balanced phantom-powered XLR-type input in addition to its jack input, making it the perfect host for voice, instrument, or even backing track. The AS50D also contains a high-quality digital effects section featuring an adjustable Chorus which can be assigned to either or both channels, also a reverb. It also has a parallel Effects Loop that can be balanced between the two channels.
One of the most difficult aspects of amplifying certain acoustic instruments is feedback. Therefore, anti-feedback controls include a Phase switch and a frequency-controllable Notch Filter. Another useful AS50D feature is an internal Limiter which allows you to drive the maximum level from the 50-watt power stage, yet remain distortion free. Neat and affordable, flexible and portable, the AS50D is ideal for the acoustic musician who wants an amp which is perfectly suited to intimate gigs.
