Marshall Code 100H cracking with some sounds


Hey guys

I bought a Marshall Code 100H about a month ago. (The cabinet also)

Now what i ask myselfe is. I have a strange cracking sound when I play with the Bridge Pickup. This only happens when I play a distortioned sound. All the clean sounds are perfect. Bus as soon I activate a distortion pedal, or put the gain up, there is this strange cracking. It's like an oversteering of distortion.

I tried with different cables, resetting the amp, with headphones, other guitars and another loudspeaker, but it's always the same.

Since I live in switzerland and I had to buy the amp in germany, it's kind of difficult to go to the dealer, because he's four hours driving away from my home.

Or do I have too high expectations on this amp, and this is totaly normal?

I recorded a sample of it, but I don't know where to upload.


Many thanks for your help.


Rock On!!!
