Marshall's acoustic series amplifiers designed specifically for acoustic guitar are quite popular and the AS100D is one of their better selling models.
The AS100D is the larger of the two amps in Marshall's Artist Series acoustic guitar amps with 4 channels, stereo output, and 100 watts of power (50 watts per side).
NB: The 50 Watt version is still available - you can see our analysis of it: Marshall AS50D.
This one is designed for gigging and playing at larger venues.
It sports 4 channels with two of them having mic inputs - it can handle piezio and magnetic picups as well as vocal mics.
One channel is dedicated to vocal microphones with a mic preamp with phantom power and an XLR socket so it can effectively be used as a mini PA system.
Note that it only has 15V phantom power instead of 48V which means you're limited in the number of condenser mics you can use
A note of caution: some online retailers erroneously list this as a 50 watt amp when in fact it has two 50 watt channels giving it a total output of 100 watts at full power.
The Marshall AS100D is great acoustic amp that performs well both on stages and in the studio.
