Product Description

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.

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 Marshall AS50D allows you to express your emotions with passion.

Dual-Channel Operation

The compact and highly portable Marshall AS50D 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.

Fight Back Against Feedback

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 Marshall 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.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (23 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Best acoustic amp the the money."
Sound: I tried several acoustic amps head to head at my local music store. It didn't take long to realize that for the money, nothing beat the clean, warm sound for this Marshall amp. I play several different guitars through it, as well as a mic and the sound is clear, clean and fits the actual sound of each of my guitars. Feature: I use the reverb and chorus sparingly if at all but for the guitar channel it is sufficient. I use the line out for recording and it produces a clean accurate sound. For gigs I use the direct out to my PA which along with the amp produces a full, nice and powerful sound. No headphone jack? While the anti-feedback features helped a little, it still doesn't do the job of a dedicated anti-feedback rack. Ease of Use: It didn't take long to get a great sound from this amp. Very easy to dial it in. Quality: Its a Marshall! Looks great. Appears well made. I have used it for two months and have had no problems with it at all. Value: As I said earlier, I tried out several of the name brand acoustic amps head to head at my local music store and for the money, nothing came close to this amp as far as sound and features. Manufacturer Support: There is no selection indicating that I haven't had to use customer support, which I haven't so I have no opinnion. The Wow Factor: Hey, its a Marshall! It looks great and I didn't hesitate to purchase it. Overall: I think I will be using this amp for a long, long time. The only reason I would have to purchase another would be the need for more power and then I would purchase the Marshall 100 watt amp. Everyone who has heard and used this amp in my studio and at gigs loves it.

" For the money you are not going to get much better. "
Sound: Having always previously plugged straight into the desk the improvement in sound by lining out from this amp was mind blowing. I play a Martin guitar and this amp helps me get the very best from it. The sound is clean and natural, recreating the lovely deepness I get from my guitar. For a relatively inexpensive amp I find the reverb great adding a warmth and depth to the sound that makes an acoustic instrument sound very natural. The chorus is adequate but I personally prefer the sound straight. It makes my acoustic sound so good I even choose to plug it in when strumming at home. Feature: Very good reverb and a satisfactory chorus (others will find this good I just personally don’t like the chorus sound on my playing). The anti feedback bit seems to work as well but I haven’t a lot of experience of using this. Have tried it using the two channels mixed together and the sound is still spot on. Ease of Use: Very easy to use. The great sound encourages you to experiment with different settings Quality: It’s now living life on the road and is standing up well. Not too heavy but it’s got a feel of quality. Value: I auditioned 3 amps of about the same price and this was by far the best. Yes you may be paying a bit more because it’s a Marshall but you get a quality amp. Manufacturer Support: No experience needed yet. The Wow Factor: The brown of Marshall’s acoustic amps are a matter of taste. But hey, who looks at an amp on a dark stage? Overall: I can see me hanging on to this bit of kit for a long time.
Style of Music: Praise and Worship
