The AS100D has
been specially designed for use with a variety of acoustic instruments,
regardless of whether they have pick-ups built in or not. Between
its four channels, this combo has the flexibility to handle instruments
with piezo transducers or magnetic pick-ups, plus microphones, for
both vocal and instrument reproduction. The two main acoustic instrument
channels [1 and 2] may be linked together and feature independent
level and EQ controls. The dedicated microphone channel offers a
similar level of control. The AS100D also has phono inputs on the
Auxiliary channel, specifically for use with external audio equipment.
Its 2x 50 Watt
stereo configuration gives you enough power to perform on stage
with superb clarity, while the provision of a balanced line out
allows you the luxury of direct connection to an external PA system
for larger concerts. The superb quality of the built-in digital
effects for Reverb, Delay and Chorus, adds an entirely new dimension
to the range of sounds available. The AS100D is actually the first
ever Marshall combo to feature digital effects, but it certainly
wont be the last! Should you want to add further effects, there
is a parallel effects loop complete with level control.
One of the most
difficult aspects of amplifying acoustic instruments is feedback.
To help eliminate this, the AS100D features several 'anti-feedback'
controls, including a Phase switch for each channel and frequency
controllable Notch Filters with selectable extra depth for channels
1 & 2.
For clear and
detailed performance, the AS100D is loaded with two 8" speakers
and two high fidelity polymer dome tweeters. There is also an internal
limiter which allows you to push the maximum level from the stereo
50 Watt output stage, whilst remaining distortion free.
Compact and portable,
the stylish AS100D offers great flexibility and is the ideal amplifier
for the acoustic player who wants the highest quality performance,
with absolutely natural tonal reproduction.
The Marshall AS100D
gives you the power to perform, but with sound so natural you'll
forget you're even plugged in!
