I am inexperienced with amps, I want to get the sound from the Arctic Monkeys first album "Whatever People Say I Am That's What I'm Not" I'm told its very simple but I just don't know how to make it. Any body know how to achieve such a sound
Would really appreciate it
Hello All, I need some help!
I bought an Marshall Emberton 2 weeks ago.
When I swiched on it given a wellcome/On sound. Now ther is no sound, but everything else is working perfectly.
Do you have aniy idea/hint What could it happened?
I have a DSL15 that is humming a 120 Hz tone, even with all controls down. This tells me the trouble is in the power section. I checked the bias voltage of both 6V6 tubes, and they are there. However, when I checked the voltage across the plate current sensing resistors, one is around 24 mV, and the other is virtually zero. I swapped the tubes, and the voltage values on the resistors went the other way round. It looks I have a bad 6V6 tube, but I'dlike to confirm before I go buying a new one. Any thoughts?
Hi. I just bought Marshall 1959 HW and it's constantly humming when it's on. I have Wizard Modern Classic Amp and ENGL Powerball 2 and they don't hum like that when ON. Is it normal? Also when I strum a chord very loud mechanical noise going out of the back. Check the video I shot to hear how both issues sound:
Just received my new JCM 800 2203 head with a new vintage 1960 av cabinet. Hooked it up and turned the power on standby. Very noticeable humming sound coming from inside the head. Is this normal? I have a early 90's JCM 900 that never has made any sounds on standby or powered up fully. Can I get some advice before I decide to send it back and go with something else?
It's not happening always, but when it does it's frustrating. Also, sometimes the volume (when it's only cranked up around 2) it tends to get quiter than how louder it suppose to be. Should i bring it back to the shop and ask a repair?
My J60 tube amp made a loud POP while jamming. All the tubes are secure and lit up, and the fuse still looks good. The amp isn’t making any sound at all though. Any suggestions on what might be the problem?
Hi My AS50D has developed a loud hum
It doesn't change if If connect different guitars or micsand changing the input levels has no effect
But it does get louder with the master volume
It sounds like a problem with the power supply is it an easy repair?
I live in the far north of Scotland so shipping is a problem
Here is a video of the hum
Today I bought a brand new JVM 205H Amp and a 1936V Cab. I am soooo lucky :-) It sounds fantastic and I am really looking forward to learning how to get the best out of it. However, I made the mistake of unboxing everything and not paying attention as to which cable came from which box and the cables were not labelled.
There are 3 cables
* The long soft cable marked RJS ELEC - AWG18 - 41/0.16 - 0.824mm ... I assumed is the speaker cable. Is that correct ?
* A short thinner cable marked Marshall PVC 0.34 SQmm X 2cores Wonderful VN (LF)... I assumed is for the 4 way footswitch. Is that correct?
* A long thinner hard PVC unmarked cable ..... I assumed is to connect the guitar. Is that correct ?
Using the cables connected as above, when I switched the amp to 'ON' I had an unpleasant buzz/hum. I discovered that the volume of hum was completely dependent on the volume control knob on the guitar. Turn it to zero and the hum disappears, turn it to 10 and the hum is very unpleasant.
I tried swapping the un-marked cable for a guitar cable that I already own (braded yellow) and the hum ALMOST disappeared even with the guitar at full volume.
1) Did I correctly guess the correct cables for the Amp, Footswitch and guitar ?
2) If I did guess correctly then why would using the cable supplied for the guitar create such a loud hum and is there anything I can do to resolve this issue completley?
Thanks in advance
Hey Marshall Forum!
About a year ago I bought my first ever Marshall amplifier; the Silver Jubilee 100W head (with 4x12 cab).
Since I use it mostly at home, I haven't cranked the volume all that much. But when I do, I notice a loud humming noise.
Today I turned the amp on, without having the guitar cable attached to it, cranked up the Master volume (with 0 gain!) and it hummed like crazy.
What could be the source of the humming?? And more importantly, how can I get rid of this awful humming?
The only cables that were attached were the footswitch, FX in/out and the power cable.
Requesting any help for amp settings, I want to break free - Brian May Guitar Solo. I know the Solo was played on a Synthesizer but Brian also plays that solo on his guitar. Does anyone have CODE 50 settings that comes close to this Solo sound?
Ive heard to get best sound out of my amp to get it off the floor. Would a stand really improve the sound, which i love anyway!
i wanna know why i always get a high tone that is disturbing me. How can i fix this through preset changes.
Thanks for help
Hello guitar players,
today I got my new Code 100 head and connected it with my 2x12 speaker 1936 from marshall. I tried the presets and they sound very cool but the sound is in my opinion a little bit to muffled and not clear enough.
So I kicked out the cabinet in the settings and then the sound is very clear and cool for me. But whats exactly the sense of the cab when it sounds not good in my opinion. Do I really need them?
Thanks for your answers! :)
Hello. I've lately been having difficultys with my MG50DFX Marshall amp. The problem is, is that the input jack will refuse to make a connection unless I hold the quarter inch jack up. I don't know much about amps and I'm hoping this is a simple fix. I've already taken the amp's motherboard out from the cabinet and taken the piece of plastic off of the top of the jack. I've attempted to bend the 2 metal pieces that make a connection to the male jack down, but to no avail. It still refuses to make sound without me holding the wire up; otherwise, it'll just make feedback. Any ideas?
Hi there !
I've got a problem with my amp. I've bought Marshall Code 50 about 6 months ago and I'm playing in a band. When I set the sound I like, there's no problem. But when I turn up the Master and I play for more than 20 minutes, the sound become very ugly: No dynamics, no bass, too high... It's like playing with a simulated amp on a computer with a very bad sound card... And I don't know why..
Is anyone has the same problem ?
Thanks a lot !
Especially on low strings, low notes.
Worse on neck pickups.
JTM45 especially bad.
Or is it just that my guitars have hotter pickups? Then again, some of my neck pickups aren't that hot and even switched to single-coil, it gets muddy and boomy.
The settings don't really help. Tried changes on all settings... EQ, cabs, preamps, amps, presence, resonance, you name it.
Or is it because I play at room volumes? Still need to try a headphone to see if it's speaker or emulator...
I'm very new to the Code 50 amp. In fact, I only owned one amp before this, and had no effects pedals, so I'm very new to this sort of stuff.
I'm trying to work out the different effects and how they really sound, so my question is this: Do you have suggestions (maybe known songs or bands) that the different presets would sound like? For example (and this is not accurate, just an example), the Old School preset is similar to what was used in the verses of My Sharona.
Any suggestions from any of you?
Getting a fair amount of hum in the FX loop with my DSL 50 head.
It's not the pedals. No problem in front.
Is this a common failure?
Tubes are good, and bias is at about 43mv, and even.
I've got a Valvestate S80 8240 which has developed a loud hum whether instrument plugged or not.
The hum disappears when it is tilted forward. Can anyone suggest a home fix?
I put up this question before but for some reason it seems to have been deleted!
