Product Description

The Marshall AS100D Acoustic Soloist features 4-channels, mic and instrument inputs, 2x50W stereo power, twin 8 inch speakers and two high fidelity polymer dome tweeters. It also features superb-quality digital effects (Reverb, Delay and Chorus), a parallel effects loop, and several anti-feedback controls including a Phase switch for each channel and frequency controllable Notch Filters.

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 2x50-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 won't 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 inch 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, while 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!

Adequate to the Job But Not Stellar Either
General
Your general opinion of this product.
Maybe I just expect a lot for $699 but I am not overly impressed by this amp. Don't get me wrong, It does what you want, but I can't say if it fell off the truck and I had to replace it that I would be replacing it with another of these same amps.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It is adequately made but again there is nothing that specifically jumps out and strikes me. Cosmetically, the details are finished. The dark outer covering is kind of ugly, but at least it is not dull black. Knobs all work and glide okay. Handle is securely locked down. The gold piping is kind of shotty. Again, it is adequate to the job.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It is heavy. The knobs all glide well. The RCA jacks in the front are not centered in the face plate punch-outs. Nothing is falling off or coming lose. It is adequate.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The AUX tone pretty much sucks. That said, channel 1 and 2 sound good. Maybe not as as good as a Bose or Fishman system, but a hell of a lot better than a Luna, VOX and some other cheaper amps.
Action
How was the action out of the box?
When you turn the knobs they do reflect a change in tone.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish is ugly but better than dull black. The gold piping is cheaply painted and I suspect it will show wear and tare immediately by flaking off. But then again, if you are buying an amp for the finish you might want to re-think your criteria.
Reliability
How has it stood up over time?
I have only had it a few weeks now. Everything is working and nothing has fallen off or broken yet.
