Does anyone have any suggestions on how to achieve that “Bridge Of Sighs” tone? I’m using the Code 50. Thanks.
i want to know if there is a way to use a second cabinet with my 100h head and 4X12 cabinet so i can have a full stack vs. a half stack?
I love my Code 50 amp but lately, it's having a problem where there is no sound coming out of the amp after a couple minutes of turning it on. The only way to fix the problem is to turn it off and on. However, this only fixes it for a couple minutes. I've already instaled the latest firmware.
I researched 1x12 open back vs. closed back vs. ported cabinet guitar cabs. My experiment with my Code 50 amp was to remove the back without unplugging anything so I could here the difference between closed back and completely open back. The amp really came alive with a lot of punch and presence while ridding the boominess that occurs. I removed the power cord socket and cut a square the same size as the speaker. This was an improvement but I liked the complete open back sound better. I then cut the back out more leaving just enough stock to support the existing power cord socket hole and protect the electronics inside the cabinet. I will continue with cosmetics such as painting inside black and/or add a grate for protection. To my ears the amp really came to life open back. I will keep it this way. It is an easy experiment to try without sacrificing anything, just remove the back cover screws and pull the back away. If you hate it you just refasten it and leave it original.
I've just bought a CODE100 - what a beast! I haven't moved on from playing with the existing presets yet, but I'm starting to think about how I'm gonna manage them when I do start building my own.
First of all, a mini-rant. I can't believe Marshall gave us 100 existing presets, but force us to overwrite those if we want to save our own. It's 2018, surely they can afford the few K it would take for an additional 100 presets? In fact, I'd be happy with a bank of 20 user-preset spaces! I owned a Zoom pedal board 20 years ago that was better than that!
So in an ideal world, I want to retain as many of those presets as I can, but make some room for maybe 10 of my own. I've already identified a couple I can lose (Virus and Nightmare). However, I don't want to have my new presets scattered about as I replace odd ones, I want them all together, ideally in slots 00-09.
So what's the easiest was to shuffle the rest of the presets around to make space in the first 10 slots. And also, what other strategies have people employed for organising their library?
I cannot understand how to use my external effects with the Code 4 100 watt head...the owner's manual is worthless...and I cannot find any YouTube videos explaining this...does ANYBODY understand how to use external rack effects with this head? Thanks.
I guess with Marshall being a small company without much expertise in building amps, this should be expected. Maybe once they've been around a while and get the hang of building amps then they'll be able to release products that work as advertised and that they are also able to maintain and provide support for.
Hang in there Marshall, you'll be a good amp company someday!
Loving my code 100h, surely marshall will be creating more stomp boxes in future, can code users expect updates to the fx chain?
Not a question, just a general observation for discussion.
I've heard a lot of people saying they can only use a CODE 25 for home use with the master volume set at 2 or 3 .
The amp sounds much better with the master volume at 8 and the guitar volume set very low (using a Les Paul).
The amp sounds much fuller and more responsive.
After I power off the CODE 25 and power it on again, it doesn't start Bluetooth connection automatically (there's no blue light) and I have to press 'rev+power' and perform pairing every time. It looks like the amp just doesn't store bluetooth connection configuration?
So for every guitar session I have to start bluetooth manually and re-pair the device which is not convenient.
Could you please give a possibility to downgrade the firmware? I've read that bluetooth auto-connection was working fine on previous version.
Hi I have had this Marshall Code 100 for a few weeks now, mucking around with it to try and figure it out and finding it to be a little user unfriendly. What I want to do is to change a single preset to what it was originally (eg factory setting) without doing a factory reset and losing all my other changed presets. I cannot find any joy anywhere about this. Also, when I look at the list of 100 presets online (there are a few lists going around in chat forums and also in the gateway section of this website) I can only ever find the 100 presets that are on the phone gateway app and not the list that was originally on the amp (for example on my amp when I factory reset it, 00 is JTM Chill, 01 is "So American" etc, whereas my gateway library has 00 as EL34 Heaven and 01 as Plexi Classic). So I cannot find the actual standard amp preset list anywhere online or within the Gateway app.
My questions boil down to three:
1. How do I restore an individual preset to what it originally was (without performing a factory reset)?
2. How do I even know what the original preset was called?
3. Say I connect my smartphone to the amp via gateway and bluetooth. If you click on the arrow on the right hand side of one of the presets in the library, it takes you to another screen. In that screen it has an amp section and a library section, with 2 small boxes you can tick next to each. What is the purpose of this screen and ticking the boxes? Like what can you actually change on this screen is it just the name of the preset or can you replace a preset that is on the amp with one that is in the gateway library?
Needless to say I am very confused and was hoping to be way ahead by this stage. Please help!
Can I record sound connecting my Ubuntu Linux 18.04 via USB cable?
I think the Ubuntu does not recognize Marshall Code 25 as a recording device. I tried without success. Can you help, please?
Does anybody know when Code firmware update is expected to be released?
Current version causes serious issues with Bluetooth reconnecion after the amp is swiched off. Also Master Volume does not work evenly and my CODE 25 is definitely too loud for practising at home.
Bought a CODE 50 two weeks ago and LOVE the tones - great reproductions! But I have the hissing problem as well. Quite noticeable as a chord or note decays. At first, thought it was normal 60-cycle single coil pickup hum, but it is not.
Read similar Posts on the Forum, so tried the firmware update and it did not help. Noise gate not really an effective alternative, either.
Team Marshall, any other solutions in the work Again, otherwise I love the amp and want to keep it.
Hello guys, i own a marshall code 25 since last summer and about one week now as i play the sound dies sudenly. The amp seems to work all the knobs,the footswitch but no sound at all. The sound comes back when i restart it but after 5-10 minutes of playing same thing happens. I have installed the latest firmware. Does anyone else has the same problem? Any advices would be pretty much apriciated. I bought the amp from andertons, i sent them an email like 3 days ago but no answer yet. Is there any warranty?
I want to buy a Marshall AS100D acoustic amp from an authorized dealer. I can not find anyone that has one in stock other than Amazon. Its listed for $724 an odd price and different than any other price I find, which is usually $699. My concern is Amazons listing states: "Ships from and sold by Amazon.com". If I buy this amp from Amazon and in the warranty peroid need to have it repaired will the warranty be honored by Marshall and Marshall Service Centers in USA?
So I bought a Marshall CODE 50 a bit ago, and with nearly device I've tried - there seems to be a lot of issues with getting the gateway app to connect to the amplifier in general (most of the time it doesn't work - despite pairing just fine).
I've tried this on the Samsung Galaxy S8, iPad 5th generation, iPhone 7+ - The connection issues seem to stem from the apps use of Btle on these devices.
To experiment, I built an application that connects to the amplifier via bluetooth for Windows, and issues commands to the amplifier through the PC. This application uses a "classic" (SPP /RFCOMM) socket connection to send commands. The application works perfectly fine via this means - it can be seen running below:
As an experiment - is there a way to force the mobile applications (if it isn't using a btclassic / rfcomm connection) to use a btclassic connection as opposed to btle?

I recently purchased the CODE 25 and am having a hard time connecting it to my laptop with the USB cables that i have. Does this require a special USB cable?
