Marshall Code 100 Combo Amp Hum Buzz
For what it is, it's still a great amp. The hum buzz doesn't get louder no matter what volume it's set to. If you are using this amp to play out with, I think it will be fine. A loud bar will cover the hum buzz. As far as practice it hone recording, it is what it is. I still love the sound of this thing. By the way, I also own a JCM 800 with a vintage 1960 cabinet. And I also just purchased a DSL 100H head and matching cabinet from Sweetwater.com. I LOVE IT! My band just opened for Dokken last week and in my 36 years of playing, I received more compliments from my DSL100H rig than any other rig in my whole career of playing in my local bands. Not that expensive and sounds so good. Talk to Yuval from Sweetwater tell him Joe from Rochester sent you! I promise you will not be disappointed in this amp and matching cabinet!

I've bought my CODE 100 two weeks ago and it has the same problem. It's a shame because I verry much like all the possibilities of this amp. So the question is, should I return it while I can or should I wait for a silution by Marshall? It can't be that hard to privide a better trafo.
