I have had my Code 50 for a while and have played around with it to no avail. It's 20-50X too loud. When I set the Master Volume control to something like .5 it's way too loud. I can adjust the volume within the preset but if I change to any other preset it almost knocks my house over. I think this amp is unusable and has some serious design flaws. Is there a way to knock down the volume for the entire amp and all the presets? I need them all set at around a .1 or .2.
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?
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.
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...
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
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?
Hi, i am using a code 50, and i cannot store the vlume levels in presets.
I am using 3 diferent presets, but i cannot level the volumes, i think that CODE dont store that.
How can i solve this ?? Its very importan, otherwise its a complete mess....all the presets with diferente volume levels....
Please HELP ME !!!
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
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 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!
How far can you turn this up wihtout blowing it up!? Code 50
Ive got a main Heavy Metal Tone I use all the time. The volume in the preset is set to 1.8. I have it that low so it doesnt blow my Clean sound away when I click between the two.
I was playing with a drummer the other day and I had the master volume up to maybe close to half and I was worried I was going to blow the speaker.
So How far up is safe?
Oh Im using a Code 50.
