I made a post a little while ago seeking alternative options to a used JCM/DSL half stack since that would likely be way too loud. My take away was that I would try to pick up a DSL20HR and a 2x12 cab. I can spend good money for this, becouse I won on the Spin Palace - I found it on this page https://casinos-rate.com/spin-palace-casino-app.html. So here is what I want.

Problem is that the DSL20HR and 2x12 cabs are not very popular on the used market so i'd either have to buy new or buy on ebay and ship. In any event - that is more expensive (~25%) than just picking up a used DSL100H/1960A half stack which are flooding the used market in my area right now. Even the DSL40 combos are only marginally cheaper than a half stack

I don't mind spending a little extra if there is actually a benefit to going the DSL20HR/ 2x12 cab route (tone / performance wise) but it honestly seems like its more expensive to go that route with no benefits.

Thoughts? Should I just get a half stack?

Guitar and lead both work fine however my Marshall DSL40 (purchased Dec 2018) has stopped working, all lights work however there is no sound. High power output also makes strange popping/crackling noises when idle, also as of 2 weeks ago the amp would randomly but rarely make a clicking noise when in standby, this stopped a week later but  I had previously never ever heard this noise before. The standby also emits a quiet hum.

Just realised the classic gain channel (clean) is louder than the ultra gain channel on my amp. Is this normal? This is with both channels being set the same. Also the preamp tube for the classic gain channel is very dim to the point it's hard to see it lighting up! This is my first tube amp so I'm pretty clueless.

Hi 

I have a TSL 100 that gives low output on crunch and lead channel. (no tube problems)

I´ve seen that this problem is common. Do you have a suggestion what could be wrong?

I suspect one of the J-Fet switches are faulty but I can´t locate any faulty ones?

(I do amp service part time)

 

Regards / Lars

I am about to purchase a Code 100 Head , all I have is a 4ohm 212 Cab. Is this okay to do. I know offically it is not, but for tube amps I've heard this is fine to do.

Hi! 

A newbie question here. Just bought the as50d amp and I'm a bit lost with the effects controls on it. So here's the thing that's bothering me, does the switches for channel one and two also control reverb or is reverb always on if the control nob is turned on of course. It is always on my amp if the nob is turned, even when non of the channel switches aren't pressed. Should it be like that that or is it something wrong with the amp? So should the channel switches next to chorus also turn on or off the reverb or not?

I purchased an AS50D amp a while ago, and while I've otherwise been extremely happy with it, when it arrived the caps fell off many of the knobs, which is obviously annoying since I can't see what the current settings are.

I contacted the (Swiss, German-speaking) vendor, who contacted Marshall, and they shipped me a baggy of replacement knobs.

 

Naively it appears that I should be able to pull the old knobs off and push these on (as I see no evidence of a set-screw anywhere). However, applying reasonable force with my hand or even prying with a screwdriver, I can't get the old knobs to come off. I don't want to risk applying a large force until I'm more confident that I'm following the correct procedure and won't break anything. 

So, my questions are

- are these in fact the correct replacement knobs?

- what is the recommended procedure to replace the knobs?

- if I am supposed to simply pull the old knobs off, should I expect to apply a lot of force?

- if not and these are the correct knobs, what is the recommended procedure to replace the knobs?

Hello, I recently purchased a Marshall Code 25 amp, and i'm not sure if the crackling sound was there from the start since it's barely audiable and when i play i can't really notice it, but when the amp is on and the guitar is not plugged on( or it is plugged in) there's a weird crackling sound that occurs every 6-7 seconds

 

Here's a video showing the issue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWFHlhBU1R8

 

Any idea guys? I tried switching the power cable and the power socket as well same issue.

Hello,

I recently bought a Marshall Code 50 and I am very happy it. But there is one thing that is annoying. Sometimes the display doesn't show any text at all when I turn the amp on . Also when I turn the amp  on there is a loud pop noise but the noise only appears when the display shows text.

Any help would be appreciated. 

Thanks

Here are the videos of the defect

This amp sounded like this since day one I always thought it was maybe just the effects but soon realised after using the clean channel turning off all the fx and amps and also having people look at it I realised that theres something seriously wrong with it. I tried contacting you guys for that 5 year warranty especially since its defective but have not gotten a response. Its been almost a year that I've been trying to figure whats wrong with it but even person I ask has no clue I've searched and searched and have found no such issue similar to mine. I would like to get an explaination of the issue and see if there is a solution or maybe a replacement if possible thank you.

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?
