I have a Marshall Code 50. Not sure what’s happened but when I plug my guitar into it, I get no sound and the presets are now being controlled by the guitar volume knob. If guitar volume is full high, display on the Code quickly scrolls thru presets. If guitar volume is full low, you can individually scroll thru presets by quickly turning volume knob up then quickly back down. No volume from cabinet regardless of preset volume or master volume, only static. Have tried with both electrics I have and both cables, in various configurations with no difference.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks. Kevin.

Quite a few people on various forums are concerned about the emulated out of our DSL20H and DSLCR amps. It seems that there is a set level for the emulated line out and headphones which can only be adjusted with either the guitar volume knob of gain channel knob. The channel volume does nothing to the line out/headphones only to the speaker output.

Is this normal behaviour? Where the gain knobs are the only controls on the amp that increases the loudness of headphone/line out.

Will Marshall provide a way to increase the headphone volume as is very low against all other devices we use such as iPhones, PC DAWS etc, so makes it very difficult to practice without disturbing the household and neighbours...

Hallo,

just received my DSL1HR now, and test it's functionality without an external cabinet (ordered but not arrived yet), so tested only with my headphones AKG K240 MKII. I noted that the volume is very low even with the volume knob at maximum level and switching the power 1W-0.1W I don't feel any difference, in both channel !

seems that only 0.1W is allowed when external speaker is disconnected. Is it broken or is it normal ? awaiting for a kind urgent fast responce please.

thanks

cheers

This is not a question but a response to those who have asked if there is a way to reduce the output wattage on Code amps to make them quieter. The short answer is no, not out of the box.

However, the speaker(s) that come with Code amps are 4 ohm. In the case of the Code 25, you can swap it out for a Celestion G10N-40 10" 8 ohm speaker (about $70 on Amazon) and reduce the output from 25 watts to 12.5 watts due to the change from 4 ohms to 8 ohms. Instead of running the master volume at < 1 when I'm jamming with my stereo, I can now run it at about 3. The added bonus is better sound - you hear the distortion from the amp itself with less mud and distortion from the speaker. This will not harm the amp in any way as driving an 8 ohm load requires less of an amp than a 4 ohm load.

Full disclosure, this was not my idea. I read about this from another Code 25 owner. Enjoy!

The problem is that when I put the distortion pre fx my amplifier does not give the sound even with any preset, the other effects work correctly only the distortion does not, however when I connect my headphones I get the distortion sound but without the headphones it sounds

Hi everyone!

Recently I bought Marshall CODE 25 and it's a great amp but I have one little problem with it.

There is a problem with MASTER potentiometer. I noticed that when I set it between 0-0.99 it is very very quiet but when I set it about 1.0 it becomes very loud. And in the effect it is very hard to play at "bedroom" volume levels. I must say that I'm disappointed - I had Yamaha THR 10 previously and it could play very well at every volume and it could play very quiet.

So to sum it up, is this some general issue with all CODE amps or something is broken in mine? Maybe master potentiometer needs repair?

My DSL401 has just started to intermittently volume drop i.e. the volume gently fades down to nothing - leave it a while, and the volume returns to normal.  Also, the effects loop doesn't seem to work as it used to - for example, if I plug a delay in to it, the delay is hardly noticeable when you play.  Not sure if the issues are related or not.  I've not had any issues at all over the last 12 years and the tubes have not been swapped out.  Grateful for any advice.  Thanks in advance.

Today I tried to connect my guitar via iRig and a common audio cable to my Code 50.

The sound was really muddy without any treble... Same when I play music from my phone over the audio input... 

Can anyone confirm this?

And is there a way to control the input volume?

Thanks and regards 

Seb

Hi,

On Dec, 2014 I bought a Marshall MG50CFX. During the last period, the amplifier became unstable, showing a strange issue: after 10-15 minutes, randomically the sound was crippling and then vanishing, with the volume control unactive. Only a complete power switch off-on resolve the issue for a while.

Any suggestions ? Thanks in advance. Max (Rome-Italy)

Hey,

Just got a Marshall Stanmore, and when listening to calmer songs, I can hear a significant amount of distortion. Like a fuzzy overdrive.
Overall, the speaker sounds great, especially on higher volume, but I still can't get over the annoying distortion. Really low-key piano songs are virtually unbearable to listen to. 

Has anyone else had this problem?

So ive been using my code50 for about a month now. Only really used it at my house and im getting on really well with it, i love it. Dead easy to use and like using a mixture of gateway and pedal.

I took it to band practice the other day, a chance for it to really show me what it can do. Turned it up to about half way on the master volume and i had this horrible screeching feedback come through every time i even touched my guitar strings. Almost as if my guitar was right up against the amp but it wasnt. 

Was fine on a clean setting, only when i had it on a distorted setting

Anyone else having this issue?

I got my CODE all set up with tones that I thought were going to work well.  Used it at practice for the first time yesterday and found out that everything seemed boomy.  I didn't have time to experiment too much, but any suggestions on what to adjust to try to get rid of the boominess?  If it matters, I have the volume set pretty low on the patch and had the master volume up pretty high.  I don't use any real high gain stuff - just your basic dirty/crunch types of tones.  Good example is the factory default Plexi.  Thanks in advance!

Is there any chance to rectify the way the master volume pot on the CODE 50 behaves via a firmware update? Or is it a malfuncion on my device?

From 0 to 1 there's, well, nothing. No sound. Above that, there's about two millimeters of neighbour friendly bedroom level followed by an abrupt kick in the guts.

Thanks in advance.

I have a Bluesbreaker reissue which I absloutley love.

Of course it doesnt have a master volume.

Has anyone any experience, good or bad of putting an attenuator before the speakers?

I want to keep the tone but redue the volume!

Good Day forum,

from clean sound to overdrive with the same position of the gain and volume, there is a huge difference in loudness. The overdrive when pressed is twice the sound level as the clean. 

Is this correct as it is or what can be the cause of this?

Best regards

Jens

Hi,
I find my Code 25 amp too loud at practice levels (at least for my apartment) so I have to set the Master Volume between 0.1-0.9 and in that  range the Master Volume varies greatly which makes almost impossible to adjust it at the same value twice.

It will be nice if the Master knob could also be set via software so it can be saved/stored and also displayed in the amp's front panel screen, since it is very common to move the amp from one room to another and accidentally change the Master setting without knowing at what level it was previously set.
Coud be possible to add this option in a future firmware/app update?

Thanks in advance!

Dear Custom Service!

I am a happy user of Code 50.

The question is, relative to a normal high volume (master volume of 4 - 6, pre amp volume up 5 or more) of the amplifier resonates. What can it be? Normally this phenomenon, or a fault in the amplifier?

I look forward to your reply!
