Hello, everyone,

I would like to ask you a question since I am not a very experienced guitarist...

I have a marshall 100 hdfx head and would like to purchase a 4x12. I have seen these two models: 

1. Marshall CODE 412 Cabinet

2. EVH 5150 Iconic Series 4x12 Cabinet Black

  ...but I do not understand the impedance issue very well and I would like to know which one is better for my head (although the ad recommends the cheapest one for 100 heads). 
 
Thanks you very much in advance :)

Picked this up at my local GC and not sure how to determine a date on the cabinet or speakers that came with it.

The 2 Creambacks in the cab are new but not sure about any of the other speakers.

Any help would be much appreciated as I'm looking to resell this ASAP and want to have the right information to advertise it with.

 

Thank you.

I have a two part question 🤔.  I have my two amplifiers listed above.  I have both electric and electric acoustic guitars.  I'm learning how to play and bought the 50 watt acoustic Amp as I  really like the sound of over wound humbuckers through it for heavy slow blues.

First question,  keeping the AS50D as the main sound, can I connect it through/to the 100 watt Marshall? Both are 4 ohms and I would like the maximum amount of power to drive my 4 x 12" cabinet of 8 ohm Jensen Tornadoes that are wired in series for the 4 ohm 100 watt MG HDFX. Then I would have 150 watts total to drive my 400 watt total limit.

 

Question two,  can I connect my 50 watt AS50D Amp to my 4 x 12" speaker cabinet by running a cable from the back of my Amp to the cabinet. I have footswitch,  line out and (effects loops) send and return Jack's to use.

  Even though my 4 x 12" cabinet would be very under powered. I would like to hear the sound of the AS50D  through those speakers. I'm new to guitar and don't want to ruin any of my equipment.  I did also have a guitar made through two luthiers,  I also made the 4 x 12" cabinet to match my guitar.  I call them Snort and the box.

  I have the components for the sound I'm looking for,  now I need to combine them all together.  I truly appreciate guidance from the technical support team at Marshall. 

God bless you for your time and kindness.  Thank you,  Eric Dailey

Hello,

I often play my origin 20h without the speaker connected, using the internal dummy load (no speaker cable connected).

My question is: can I leave the speaker cable connected to the origin, but NOT to the cab? Or thay it's going to deactivate the internal dummy load, as the cab was connected?

It would be easier for me that way, to occasionally use the cabinet without turning the head to reach the connector, but I ask because I don't want that to damage the amp.

Please let me know, thanks and regards

Hello, I am making a big purchase for my first tube amp and amp between the Marshall JVM 410 head and combo versions. So, obviously, the head offers more flexibility in terms of cabinet selection etc. However, the 410 combo also has a line out so that too can be paired with any cabinet if I am not mistaken. If that is the case, why don't more people gravitate towards the combo? Is there anything that the 410H can do that the 410C cannot? All feedback is greatly appreciated.

Hi All,

I have an immaculate first issue anniversary Silver Jubilee head and cabinet that I want to sell but going through some specialists etc the valuation is disappointing.

I went on a tour of the factory a few years ago and my guide was surprised that I had such nice gear and commented that there was only 800 0f them made as a first run !

Can anyone give me a guide to the valuation ?

 

Many thanks.

Hello Everyone, 

I bought the Marshall code 100 Head as a second hand after watching the positive reviews of it, and I really liked the sound and its features!


I plugged it to a 1 x 12 Cabinet and it works good except for my big disappointment with the hissing white noise that i was getting even when the master volume knob on the amp is turned all the way down. 

I tried every simple solution that i could come with, including turning off the computer in the room, I tried resetting the Amp to factory settings,  I even installed the new firmware from the marshall website.  but none solved this issue.
Does anyone know the solution for this problem? 

Thank you very much in advance

Hi

I’m trying to decide which amp to get. My ultimate goal is to get out there and start gigging. I love big, dumb rock songs and have more or less narrowed down my search to a JCM 800. Here’s where my dilemma comes in.

For the same price, I can get either 1990 JCM 800 (50 watt) and a 1960A cab of indeterminate year or the little SC20 amp and cabinet.

Since I want to start gigging out, I am leaning toward the full-sized amp, with worries that it might be too loud even. However, since most of my playing is at home, I like the idea of the lower powered SC20. The one I played sounded super good at around-the-house levels. I am worried it won’t suffice if I try to gig with it. I have never played through an 800. (Or any half stack, for that matter. Right now my main amp is a Deluxe Reverb.)

So I guess what I want to know is which one is the better option for me? Do I prioritize stage volume or home volume? Does anyone even need a big, loud amp nowadays, or is a smaller, miked-up amp better in the long run?

Hey all.

New to the Code.  Tryin to navigate the website some.  
Question about user uploaded preset settings.

 At the bottom of the setting description, I've noticed many times there will be an icon or pic of a Marshall cabinet with a red X thru it.  My guess is that it means the cabinet simulation is turned off..??

Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Has anyone used a small pedal amp to input the headphone to a amp like the electro harmonix 5MM.  I saw this done on a Spark amp to connect to a speaker cabinet.  I would think I could do the same on the CODE.  Adapt the 1/8 to 1/4 to go from headphone jack to the input on the 5MM and then in my case that speaker cable goes to a mixer.  I know this amp does have a dedicated line out to do what I want to do.  So I think this would accomplish the same thing.  Any thoughts good or bad?  I plan to try as soon as I get my hands on a small pedal(not a stomp box, just a pedal size amp) and configure the cables to go from 1/8 headphone to the 1/4 input on the amp.  I'm not an electrical engineer, I just need a "line out" if possible.  Should work.  Thanks,

Hello,    New amp I procured and I am hoping to get some Q's answered regarding. 

It did not come with a footswitch and being new to all of this I do not know why I need one or which footswitch to get ????

Also, I was told by the original owner that it is quite than it used to be and may need a new tube.   Also do not know which way to go with this ...   

 

Last point is when switching over from clean to overdrive it is buzzing and I am not sure why...

 

After hours on youtube and reading the instruction manual I am even more confused. 

 

Thanks in advance for comments/advice.

Hello, I recently ordered a used JCM800 Model 1580 Bass Cabinet.  The seller's photos show it with one 18 inch Celestion G18Q-400 speaker.  I've learned that they were made in the 1980s-90s, and came in mutliple speaker configurations. Mine is the 1x18.  I'm assuming the cab originally came with the G18Q-400?

Would really love to know:

1. the performance specs of the G18Q speaker (Celestion.com didn't have any info)

2. whether the round port cut in the baffle of the cab is original. 

See picture below.  Thanks!

I recently purchased a code 100h.  I've noticed that with the cabinet simulation turned off, the amp is incredibly fizzy and bright.  I am running into a 2x12 with Celestion Vintage 30s.  Is there a way to tame this high-end shrillness without having to resort to running cabinet simulation through an existing cabinet?

I have two identical Marshall DSL 100 watt heads. One of them was starting to crackle when I turned up volume on either clean or distortion channels. It  finally quit and assumed it was just dust in pod. However  a week ago turned amp head on and neither green light for clean channel or red light for distortion channel were coming on and no sound at all from either channel coming coming through speaker cabinet. Trying to get some help on what could possibly be wrong causing me to lose sound from amp head. Thanks

I noticed there is an emulated out on the back of the 20Watt Dsl head. From reading the .pdf manual, I understand that the head needs to stay connected to the speaker cabinet. So I know to never un-hook it, however - My questions being - 

Do I need to be in Stand-By mode to actually use the headphones? If not, will the sound still come from the speaker cab? 

Also, can I just plug my headphones directly into the Emulated Out? the .pdf manual says the Dsl20 Emulated Out supports Headphones. But I've seen people comment in other places that you need a headphone amp that increases volume or something. I haven't been able to test with headphones yet, and I kinda' wanna' get the right answer on this before I try. Thanks. 

 

Loving the Amp and Speaker cab though haha. Just came in yestreday.

I have 3 combo amps each with a single 16 ohm speaker. baffles the heck out of me why Marshall would recommend a 2x12 8 ohm ext cabinet. I want to run both the internal speaker and the ext cabinet at the same time. I would like to put 8 ohm speakers in the combos to match the ext cabs. I have a JCM 2000 DSL 401, a DSL 40cr And an Origin 1x10 20 Watt. Can a16ohm speaker be upgraded with an 8 ohm speaker in these combos and if so what speakers would you recommend. Any additional suggestions or information is most welcome.
