I need Your help regarding send/return section of my amp.
The amp is a combo, solid-state Marshall 5212 Fifty Split Channel Reverb (it's around 30 yrs old). The sound is superb, both channels and reverb are working flawlessly to this day.
Recently, I decided to put my delay, reverb and chorus pedal into FX Loop, but when I do so, no sound is coming from the amp. I tried with different pedals (one at a time), with different cables, but no success. The whole time the guitar was connected to the direct input on the front panel (guitar>direct input>send>pedal input>pedal output>return). I strum the strings and nothing's coming out of the speakers. But then I noticed one thing, when I unplug the cable from the "Return" jack on the rear panel, the sound is coming up from the speakers like it's supposed to (without pedal involved ofc). It's almost like direct input on the front and FX loop section on the rear side can't be active at the same time... Is this common problem with these amps, do you have some advice on this issue, or should I take it to electrician to check it out?
Please check the label from the rear (below):
Thanks in advance!
Hello I'm considering to buy DSL1HR or CR for silent recording at home. But I would like to use fx loop SEND output to record raw valve soud to apply impulse response later.
Is it safe to unplug cabinet, and without connecting headphones use these amps in such manner?
And if so, why? Usually valve amp needs speaker load
Thank you in advance for the answare!
Hi, I have a queation about the Marshall Studio series of tube amps (Sorry it not CODE related)
i have all 3 amps in that serie, the SV20H Plexi, SC20H JCM800 and 2525c Jubilre
I would like to know more about the fx loop, is it line or intrument level ;
+4 (line/active current) fx loop
-10 (instrument/passive current) fx loop
it's not indicated anywhere in the user manual
I just want to know if I can use a regular stomp box delay and reverb in the loop or it's made to be used with rack effect.
Thanks in advance!
I have recently acquired a code 100H and cab and am learning how to use it to get the best from it. I have found i can never seem to get my solo playing to cut through and it needs a boost. I planned on using the FX loop with my boost pedal but i get no effect whatsoever. My leads are all good and the pedal works - i just cant seem to get any response from the FX loop. Can you please help?
I haven’t been able to find the answer to this via web search. Does anyone know if the effects loop in the 100h is buffered, or not? Has anyone noticed dramatic tone loss if using 20’ send and return cables (40’ total)? Thanks!
Using the the Fx Loop with my Boss GT-100 via the four cable method, can I put the Overdrive, Comp, Wah, etc., effects before the Code 100 preamp and the Delay, Reverb, Chorus, etc., effects after the preamp and before the power amp and the cabinet? In affirmative case, these functions (preamp, power amp and cabinet) remain available?
I currently have a pedal board that puts delay, chorus and phaser through an effects loop and the rest of my pedals: OD, Tuner, etc. do not. When I play my Ultra Gain Channel (I click on the Channel pedal button) and play, then click on the FX Loop button on my pedal to engage the FX Loop but my volume level becomes lower. When I disengage the FX Loop button the volume goes up again. Any thoughts on how to level these off? There isn't a volume level button on my delay, chorus or phaser to balance that out. Is that normal?
As it was mentioned on this forum connecting additional looper pedal isn't possible in a direct way, bacause there is no FX in and out.
I'm wondering If anyone has experience in building FX Loop using AUX In and Headphones Out in Marshall CODE 25/50 amp?
Can it work? If so, is this a good option?
Hi, I got my Code 100h today and I want to use my FX board (Line 6 Firehawk FX) with the FX loop of the code. I used the 4-cable method and triple checked that the wiring and routing is correct...
Guitar to the input of the firehawk. FX send of the firehawk to the guitar input of the Code. FX send of the Code to firehawk FX return. Line output of the firehawk to the Code‘s FX return. Placed the FX loop in the firehawk routing.
However, the Code‘s FX loop doesn‘t seem to work. No FX from the firehawk. I cant find a mix option or FX loop activation within the Code.
I own a Marshall MG100dfx combo and want to place a volume pedal through the Fx loop. Should i use a High or Low impedance pedal in that position for the best results?
Thanks in advance.
If I wanted to purchase a loop station (Boss RC-30) and use that with my Marshall Code how could this be done since the loop station sits in between the Amp and guitar. If that is not supported is there something that is out their that would . That type of technology would be a good thing to add the foot switch.
Just a basic question. Wondering if the fx loop in the back of my amp was Line Level. Is this universally true? Are all fx loops line level?
