I have a Marshall lead 100 with 4/12 drivers an a serial no 17940 ..an cream checkerd front an Marshall logo in white in center ....what year pls
every company who sells digital amp made some upgrade with more amp or efx or cabinet or upgrade a better firmware with better tones. you do nothing! I've asked you - almost one year ago -, by mail, if marshall was programming an upgrade and in your mail you answered yes..I think was untrue, it's the worst support I've ever seen in digital amplification.
Hi guys just wondering if anyone has got a preset to play the above
cant seem to get the right sound on my Code 50
Cheers in advance
owned a code 25 for a while now but only really started using it during lockdown but have to say I'm really impressed. I'm just using it for living room playing and connected to my DAW as a way of laying down ideas but seriously, it's REALLY good.
For context, I've played guitar for 27 years and working in live music has been my primary source of income (pre lockdown....) for around 17 years. I'm usually a live-sound engineer and tour manager and occasionally fill in the gaps with some guitar-teching. I'm uk-based but have international clients, mostly guitar-based, playing mostly academy sized venues but have done major festivals worldwide and one short stint of an arena tour. The point here is not to blow my whistle, simply to say I've spent a lot of time being exposed to all manner of amps and modelling.
I own a line 6 helix and while the CODE isn't as flexible with regards to I/O, I genuinely feel like it's amp-modelling, especially for crunch, fuzzy or blown out tones, blows the Helix out of the water. Not that I'm as likely to use metal tones or had much cause to tweak them but I've noticed those kind of presets can sound a little thin. Also, higher gain sounds in general could benefit from a graphic EQ somewhere in the modelling chain, as it can be prone to squeak at frequencies usually outside of a regular amps range, presumably because of the full-range nature of the cab.
So, my query is, is there any chance that the CODE range is likely to get any substantial firmware updates or maybe 2nd generation hardware that could bring additional functionality/Pro level durability and a decent footswitch... I'm impressed that you've managed to get that much functionality out of a mono-jack but a few extra switches or even just midi connectivity for use with after market footswitched to access would open the amp right up.
Personally, I'd love to see one capable of more complex I/O routing i.e. the ability to record your dry input to DAW over usb and similarly, route from the DAW to the amp input for re-amping.
Midi I/O and an xlr input with phantom and a decent sounding pre would make it a nice little hub for a solo recording setup.
Anyway, great work Marshall/Softube, really hope you develop the line further.
Quick 4 part question: A) can I use the USB to get a line level signal into my PC that my digital interface will push to my powered monitors?
B) when using USB is the cabinet speaker muted?
C) must my DAW be open to make this work?
D) in this USB mode, can the CODE 100 be operated without speakers connected?
I have a Marshall 9200 poweramp (Dual mono-bloc) that I am having problems with. Channel A works fine, but when I turn on Channel B, I get no output, but rather I get this low pitched buzzing sound that becomes louder and louder. (Both channels work independently of each other, as in Channel A runs 4 6L6GC tubes and Channel B runs another 4 tubes)
Also, Channel B's tubes glow blue when it is turned on. (I never turn Channel B longer than 30 seconds after that buzzing sound starts) I was wondering whether it was a blown tube or whether it is something more sinister at work, i.e. a blown transformer.
FYI, the amp doesn't trip the fuse, but rather the tubes just immediately glow blue, like the gas in the tubes is on fire or something.
Thanks for your help guys.
Can I use an extension cabinet such as the MG412 being there is an extension cabinet output on my Code 100C combo amp?
Have a few questions about attenuator usage with SC20H amp.
1. Do I need two attenuators? My cabinet has two speakers (8 Ohm each), and SC20H has two separate outputs for each speaker, so does it mean I have to buy two attenuators, one for each speaker? I didn't manage to find SC20H schematics, so I'm not sure if those two amp outputs are connected in parallel internally, and I can just use one attenuator.
2. Do I need attenuator(s) at all? I want to run the amp with overdriven tubes, thus I have to set max level, right? Consultant at my local store told me it's enough to reduce "Master" volume, and EL34 will still be overdriven, if I set "Pre-amp" volume to max. But folks at Marshall forum say that it's still better to use attenuator, even in 5W mode. Again, I don't have SC20H schematic, so it's hard to tell who is right.
3. What if my cabinet only have one 4 Ohm input (2 x 8 Ohm speakers inside)? Is it enough to connect it to the amp with only one cable? Or I have to rework my cabinet to have two different inputs (separate input for each speaker)?
Ok Marshall we bought your product thinking it would be a good product. With trusted support. You have failed your customers and your products with no support for the code amps that your customers bought. And now most are stuck with a half working amp that they can't sell or not happy with. When will you get off your butts and fix the amps with a firmware update? And support the product and the consumers? Let us know so we can either stick it out or move on to another product.
Having problems storing presets to foot switch- manual not helpful. Does anyone have step by step instructions? Many thanks
hi there !
i have an old Marshall head and I’m looking for it’s date of fabric.... I only have the serial number since all the other identification letters have fallen off.... The serial number showing in the back is S/ 11835...
csn anhbody here help me please ?
My Valvestate VS65R only puts out about 5% of its original wattage. It gave a pop noise a while back while I was playing at 70% volume and fell silent while I was testing a new capacitor. I found a set of circuit boards and transformer, installed them with a new tube but only get the small amount of sound even with everything turned up. I tested it with different combinations, transformers, boards, tubes, speakers, guitars, cables, but no luck. Any help on what the cause could be, or how to troubleshoot would be greatly appreciated. Peace and Rock On!
Where I can buy the Marshall Dsl40c's fuses?
I've had a hard time finding them. My Marshall went silent and I replaced all the tubes.
Running out of ideas.
I just bought a Marshall Code 50, it is new but I think it have a problem.
When I move command buttons (Gain, Bass, Middle & Volume) nothing happend.
When I move Trebble button it change Trebble and Volume in the same time.
Also, I saw that settings change without touch buttons when I'm playing guitare.
Could you tell me what I have to do for fixing this issue please ?
I tried to reinstall the firmware but it didn't fixed the issue.
Just bought a DSL100HR head and noticed that it is self switching from clasic gain to ultragain chanel in a random way.
It happend 3 times in aprox. 20 hours of functioning and 2 times I was not even playing the guitar, the amp was on on classic gain crunch and switched suddenly on the ultragain.
I do not use the PEDL-90012 foot switch, I use instead a midi connection from loop controller Harley Benton FXL8 Pro ( everything works as expected here , could program and switching works fine through midi). The amp works perfect in rest nothing to complain except this strange behavior.
Q: any idea what is the problem and if/how can be fixed, is it something common ?
Thanks in advance!
I got my DSL 20 CR in May 2020 so 6 months ago and recently have noticed that the light underneath the power switch is flickering.
It is now significantly dimmer and a bit annoying not really what you would expect with the quality of a marshall.
Not sure if this is covered by the warranty or if I need to fix it myself.
Any Help greatly appreciated,
Having constant issues trying to connect iPad to Code25 via Bluetooth. Sometimes it works , sometimes it doesn't.No consistent behavior. Yes I have made sure Code25 is latest version, yes I have updated IPad. Yes I have turned it off and on again (iPad and Code). I have not hit it with a hammer YET...Settings in Ipad says connected, Menu in Gateway App says not connected. Do search in Menu > Code is found> tap Code ID and says its connecting , Just a whirling wheel. Meanwhile IPad settings states connected. Extremely frustrated. Is there a solution to this or did I just get conned into buying something that doesn't do what it was sold to do. Help please............
The working principle for headphone jack is that it offers an audio source inline-level, the recording audio cannot be amplified, in that how to record audio from headphone jack?
what is the best setting for gary moore "still got the blues" to have a long sustain sound on my guitar and also the santana sound please and thank you..
