Hiss on bass notes when playing clean
0

votes

I noticed my Marshall Code  25 makes a hissing noise when I play through any of the clean amp models. This hissing noise is clearly audible when I play a note on the low E string. It reminds me of an old cassette tape. This is especially apparent with the cab emulation switched off. On the higher strings there is no problem. Is this normal? The hiss doesn't go away with the noise gate turned on.  I have this problem with both firmware versions 1.44 and 1.45.

Hi Stefan,

Just to check, have you tried another guitar or cable, what type of pick ups do you have.

Marshall
Ofcourse I have tried other guitars and cables. It has nothing to do with that. I tried with several Seymour Duncan pickups: Jazz, Custom, JB, '59, Cool Rails and also Fender single coils. The problem is in the amp. - Stefan Kolev 22 Feb 2021 at 04:19 PM
Hi Stefan,

Thank you for confirming this, if you are still getting the issue, I would suggest contacting the store purchased from if under a year old the warranty will be with the store and they will be able to arrange to have it looked at by an engineer.

The amp is a few weeks old. I heard something similar on a youtube video as well. - Stefan Kolev 22 Feb 2021 at 04:38 PM
I'm talking specifically about the issue that can be heard in this clip at 0:24: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFX7xrJmfYY

He plays a note, there is a hiss and then it disappears. Looks like this is a common issue on the code amps.
