The fantastic Marshall AS50DC is a sweet amplifier that is a gigging musician's dream, combining a compact size with a big sound that is delivers your tone with all the warmth and clarity you could desire. This limited edition model has been created to cater to the demands of many who wish to own this awesome amp in a delightful cream finish. Built upon the award winning AS50R, the AS50DC is a superb amplifier featuring a new tweeter, phantom powered microphone channel and digital chorus and reverb.
Your acoustic instruments - guitar, vocals, etc. - are perfectly catered to with the excellent AS50DC, with 50 Watts of a power waiting to be tapped into. This combo has the flexibility to handle instruments with transducers - such as Piezo-fitted acoustic guitars or magnetic pick-ups in Channel 1 -, or microphones via the designated XLR input on Channel 2.
In Channel 1 you have a Volume control to set the level sweetly; as well as Bass and Treble controls - allowing you to carve out the lower and higher frequencies respectively, to suit your instrument's pickup. Channel 2 has Phono inputs for your to connect an external audio device - e.g. to play accompanying tracks -, a balanced XLR input for a microphone, an instrument jack input for keyboards, drum machines, etc. As with Channel 1 you also have Volume, Bass and Treble controls to shape the signal as you please.
To give your tone a subtle lift and enhance the timbre of your instrument, Marshall have included studio-quality FX which are assignable to either or both channels in the Master section. A range of Chorus and Reverb controls allow you to inject life into your live sound without having to carry around extra equipment. However, if you wish to implement your own outboard FX, the FX Loop is at your disposal too, allowing you to create a blend of built-in and external FX with ease.
Along the rear panel are a host of further control and connectivity options. The Footswitch Jack allows you to connect a Marshall PEDL-10029 (sold separately) to control the built-in Chorus and Reverb FX. The Line Out Jack offers a dedicated recording output for fuss-free capture. The DI Out XLAR allows you to connect the amp directly to a PA if you play in an ensemble or are playing a large venue.
For clear and detailed performance, Celestion and a high fidelity polymer dome tweeter load the AS50DC amp with two 8” speakers. There is also an internal limiter, which allows you to push the maximum level from the 50-Watt output, whilst remaining distortion free.
The last thing you want to have to contend with during a gig is feedback, and thanks to the clever team at Marshall it is much simpler to keep your signal in check. The useful 'anti-feedback' control system includes a Phase switch and frequency controllable Notch Filter, both work together to ensure that all anyone hears is the sublime combination of your instrument and the AS50DC.
Weighing in at a mere 16kg and fitted with a substantial carrying handle, the AS50DC is very easy to transport wherever your music takes you.
