I have the possibility of buying an used MARSHALL CODE PEDL-91009 FOOTSWITCH for my MARSAHLL CODE 25, and the seller has told me that it does not come with the connection cable to the amplifier, is that really the case? What kind of cable do I have to use to connect the pedal to the mono or stereo jack amplifier?
This pedal has to be powered by a battery or receives electrical power from the connection cable with the amplifier?
I have a brand new Code 50 + Footswitch - got them today. I have saved 3 of my own presets to Bank A 1 2 3. No problem. Also assigned the tuner to a switch. That was all fairly straightforward.
However, I am unable to assign any other (new) presets to any of the other banks. When I follow the exact same process I used for Bank A - The footswitch just defaults to one of the amps, stock presets (all of which sound nasty).
I've watched the tutorials. At the moment, I have only 3 presets of my making on the switch and no, apparent way, of using any of the other banks.
Am I missing something obvious?
In case Marshall decides to do another round of Codes, or for people that want to buy one, here is my bottom line after dealing with this thing for a few years. I had Line 6 experience and wanted a simpler all-in-one modeling combo with a bluetooth app that could do hard rock. The Katana looked like a toy so I bought this.
PROS: Solid construction. Looks great. Good range of amps and effects. Bluetooth app is very good and can tune every parameter. Tones can be downloaded and backed up to/from Marshall site. Amp can sound very good (after a lot of tweaking). The Plexi, American OD, JTM Crunch and Acoustic amps are good. The Guv’nor, Compressor, Chorus, noise gate and all the delays and reverbs are useable. Marshall has done sufficient software updates to correct early issues (bluetooth, tones, bugs). Can be used at bedroom volume with Master on ‘1’. Optional footswitch gives good control. Documentation is good. Updater software on PC works well.
CONS: Other than those mentioned above, all the other amps and effects are bad. This includes the JCM800, JVM and Silver Jubilee. All the cabs are bad. None of the stock patches are usable. You have to make your own. There are user uploaded patches you can try but very few are usable. Learning curve is significant. The amp is too loud. When you turn up from bedroom level to louder, the sounds change and become very boomy which should not happen with a modeling amp. No effects loop. The ‘out’ is a mini USB. Connecting to a computer requires a mini USB to USB or Lightning cable, which is not included. I tried to use the USB to record to Garageband and sound came out but I couldn’t make it sound good. The footswitch also has a learning curve, and like other people I had to have mine replaced.
ADVICE: Don’t buy it. I bought my Code 50 new from Sweetwater for $299 and now the same version of the amp is $399. If you must have a Code, get the 25 instead. It is cheaper and still absurdly loud. The higher volume available in the 50 is useless because it sounds bad. The extra hundred bucks just gets you painfully loud solid state power amp watts.
If you do get a Code, upgrade all the firmware immediately. You need to connect to a computer to do this, but first you have to find the cable on Amazon. This is unforgivable.
BOTTOM LINE: I have spent too many hours tweaking the Code. This is what I hated about Line 6. But the Line 6 tones were superior. I never got a good JCM 800 sound out of the Code, after hundreds of hours of work. It’s only “great” amp sim, oddly, is the American OD. Marshall’s own Classic Metal patch uses this, not a “Marshall” sim! The Code is marketed as Marshall technology with amp sims created by Marshall, but it is not. Softube created the software and tones. This is not a Marshall amp. Line 6 Marshall sims are far better.
I have now bought a tube amp. I am keeping the Code because I have mastered it and can practice on it but I would not buy it again, certainly not for $399.
Hello.. Why does "My gateway" not appear when I access it from the PC?
This actually is a cluster of a few questions that are closely related.
To be able to carry adapted presets with you, you need to save them tot 'Device', the second Icon from the left.
However to link a preset to a position on the Footswitch it needs to be saved to the Amp, the most left Icon when saving.
Most of the time I actually want both, have them in my device and also in the Amp, because of the footswitch.
I have nog found an easy way to do that, both on a one by one and a 'all presets' basis. Anybody?
Because you need the presets in the Amp to link to the Footswitch, every now and then I would like to return the Amp to the original Factory presets.
There are clear instruction how to do that, but when I do, I do not get the Original Marshall Code Factory Settings, but basically what is in my 'MyMarshall'.
I seem not to be able to go back to the presets that were in the Code when I first bought it.
Is there a way to do that, or what is the logic behind it?
It is convenient to take my presets to another Code and use mine, but in a gig, they need to be linked to the footswitch.
So how to deal with that?
Thanks for anyones help!
i brought a code pedal 91010 for my code 25 amp but its not working as it is given on user manual. When i plug in the pedal it just change work as a turn off & on effects like modulation , delay etc
can someone tell me what is the purpose of that particular pedal, im confuse please help me.
my footswitch forgot the presets...can i gig with this thing? i can't have that happen... i set up a1, a2, a3 and b1, b2, b3, now its just flashing?
Or is the the app. screwing it up?
this is looking more complicated than user friendly...
I need the Electric Diagram for the marshall code 50 amp and footswitch, both stopped working and my Electric guy is asking for it to make it work again, we are not founding it ob Internet, thanks!
Hello folks, I have just bought the Marshall Code 100 which I was really excited about having read the description and watched the demo videos. The amp does sound amazing, but yesterday, on the first occasion that I actually tried the amp during a rehearsal, I was shocked to discover that when I step on the provided footswitch to change presets (like activating one with distortion or heavy delay), mid-song, the flow of the sound broke, there was a moment of silence before it switched to the next preset. I've been trying to research this on the Internet, but have only found 2 instances of it being addressed, no one talks about this in review videos or blogs. This baffles me - how is (mostly) everyone ok with this?
This effectively makes it impossible to use the built-in effects of the amp, which is exactly what its main outstanding feature is. Why have 100 presets when you can't switch mid-song? Are guitarists only supposed to use the Code family to select the main sound they want for a certain song, then keep using pedals for changes mid-song? ?
I'm extremely disappointed since the built-in effects were the main reason I went for this amp - I wanted to use this as both an amp and a multi-effect board to some extent. Is there any fix for this? A firmware update may be, or does the separately-sold Code pedal make a difference?
Seriously considering returning it at this point. Advance thanks for the replies.

Hi! On Marshall's official website, the description says that the PEDL-91010 pedal has indicator lights. Mine doesn't. I saw that in others they don't have it either. What happens?
hey there everyone,
im kinda new to the looping scene and bought a boss rc 5 looping station for my code 25 but when i plug them in i wont get any sound..
is there something i am doing wrong or is it just not possible to add a loop pedal to the code 25?
btw i dont have any other pedals or the marshall footswitch
hoping someone can help me out!
My pedal one day works fine, other day don't work at all!? I don't see any hardware damage. Please help me. I don't know what to do! :(
Hello, I'm currently using fender lt50 with fender MGT4 footswitch. If I buy Marshall Code 50 will this footswitch work? Just for changing to channels from clean to distortion.. I found a solution in a Reddit video. And I download that video to my computer by using Reddit video downloader.
Is there away to turn off tuner mode? I do not use it and sometimes I go into it by accident.
I am not able to use the product in a minimally satisfactory way due to the following problems and difficulties:
- It is not possible to change the order of patches saved in either the hardware or the mobile application. There is no way to back up the saved patch set;
- The foot controller only controls the patches of blocks 1, 2 and 3. I explain: the FS only handles A1, A2, A3, up to J1, J2 and J3, which totals only 30 patches out of the 100 available. It is not possible to handle patches numbers 4 to 10, 14 to 20, 24 to 30, 34 to 40, etc.
- The unit is crashing during patch editing directly on the hardware (I have videos with the evidence).
Marshall Team, we need your support to resolve this, please! Thanks!
I need help with the code footswitch

thanks in advance for the tutorial for me, tye moron.
Hi i have a set of combined issues with my Code 50 with the 4 button footswitch
First of, love the products!
But my issue with it is major! I cannot set any preset on my footswitch, It seems so easy on the tutorials but mine just keeps on switching back to the preset that already was on the button (1,2 or 3). I do as followed. I chose the preset i want on ex.button 1, so i hold the "store/exit" button for 2 seconds and then i push the 1 button on the footswitch. But it only changes back to the preset it WAS. So no changes. When i HOLD the "Store/Exit" button for too long (3a4 sec) then it says "stored" and then no sounds comes out of the amp anymore, i can push the REV and AMP buttons and the LED light up. But no sound! The footswitch also then doesnt butch. I have to restart the AMP to get it to work again.
I tried to update the firmware but it already was up-to-date so i reinstalled the latest firmware again. I also tried to reset the AMP back to the factory reset but the problem still exists.
Hallo ich habe das Problem das sich der Footswitch ab und zu wie aufhängt, verdrücke ich mich fängt er an die Banks durchzuzählen und hört nicht mehr auf, oder wechselt auf eine zahl und lässt sich nicht mehr zurückstellen, so das ich wieder zu den Presets komme.
Nur ein Neustart des AMPs hilft das er wieder funktioniert.
Sprich AMP ausschalten warten bis die Lichter des Footswitches ausgehen, und dann wieder Einschalten.
Habt ihr solch ein Problem auch schon einmal gehabt oder eine Idee was das sein könnte.
Dr. Google mag mir da leider auch nicht weiter helfen.
Mein AMP Marshall Code 100 Head
Presets are now saved to User Library and can be easily accessed in Gateway app. Any preset then can be stored to any CODE slot. Double tap the preset and ten tap the first "Save" button, then it will show you a screen with the 100 CODE preset slots, where you can select where to store your preset.
The only missing feature might be the ability to re-arrange CODE presets, which we will see what we can do about it.
We are working on a feature in Gateway app that allows to re-order CODE presets. Hopefully, that would help you.
