Code 100H through MG 4x12 Cab


I'm running a Code 100h head through MG 4x12 cabinet. This set up is load at home, but a band rehearsal I can hardly be heard above the drums and bass. 

That's with the patch volumes on 8-9 and master volume around 8-9 also.

Do I need to look at noise gate settings, presence, resonance etc or just put an EQ pedal in front of it?

I've heard others say that they gig regularly with the Code 100 without any issues.

Hi John,

Thank you for your message, if the amp and cab are all set up correctly,  and the volume it set to a high level, and you are still getting a low output, I would suggest you get the amp looked at by an engineer.

another thing to consider , are you the only guitarist or is there more than one? your sound could be getting lost between the frequencies , try adjusting your eq settings and even lowering your gain a little bit. sometimes it takes a little bit to adjust through the mix and when signals are similar they can get lost. this is something i have found common in high gain situations. hope that helps

Thanks James.

I think it's more of an EQ problem than anything else. I'm the only guitarist in the band. Going to look at tweeking a few settings to see if it improves things.
