I bought a Marshall Code 100H about a month ago. (The cabinet also)
Now what i ask myselfe is. I have a strange cracking sound when I play with the Bridge Pickup. This only happens when I play a distortioned sound. All the clean sounds are perfect. Bus as soon I activate a distortion pedal, or put the gain up, there is this strange cracking. It's like an oversteering of distortion.
I tried with different cables, resetting the amp, with headphones, other guitars and another loudspeaker, but it's always the same.
Since I live in switzerland and I had to buy the amp in germany, it's kind of difficult to go to the dealer, because he's four hours driving away from my home.
Or do I have too high expectations on this amp, and this is totaly normal?
I recorded a sample of it, but I don't know where to upload.
Many thanks for your help.
I have a code 100H. When using the headphones, the effects loop does not come through. If I connect an external cabinet it works fine. Why doesn't the FX come through in headphone mode? Thank you.
I have a Marshall Code 50. Not sure what’s happened but when I plug my guitar into it, I get no sound and the presets are now being controlled by the guitar volume knob. If guitar volume is full high, display on the Code quickly scrolls thru presets. If guitar volume is full low, you can individually scroll thru presets by quickly turning volume knob up then quickly back down. No volume from cabinet regardless of preset volume or master volume, only static. Have tried with both electrics I have and both cables, in various configurations with no difference.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Hello. I have a Marshall Code 100 Head, 4 12 cabinet and the 2 12 combo amp. Absulutely love these amps. I also have the 3 way footswitch. What I can't figure out, is how to be able to turn off and on the REVERB from the foot pedal. Is there a way for this? It defaults to allow you to access the Distortion, Modulation and Delay but what about the reverb? Any ideas?
I recide to open my code 50 cabinet. It was not just a simple sound change matter. For me this cabinet is the low point in the project. With this upgrade I believe now th speaker moves freely. Of coarse you have all those open cabinets advantage, more crystallinity, less punch low freequencies, more spacial sound distribution (less directionality)... For me the stage effect was quite positive. Some time ago I was really deciding to kick it out but now I am very satisfied with this little amp.
Is the CODE™412 4x12-inch Angled Electric Guitar Speaker Extension Cabinet discontinued? If so, then why? I did purchased one 2 years ago.
My online dealer no longer has it listed; instead, they have listed, the CODE™212 2x12-inch Angled Electric Guitar Speaker Extension Cabinet ― which I do plan on buying ― however, I still would like to purchase another CODE™412.
Hi. I have bought the Marshall Code 212 cabinet with 8OHM. Now I want to buy Marshall DSL1HR tube head with 16OHM. Can I connect 16 OHM head to 8 OHM cabinet? Thanks in advance
I have a Marshall CODE 100 (not 100H) and I noticed that there is a "Loudspeaker 8OHM" (input or output ???) on the back side.
I would like to know whether the "Loudspeaker 8OHM" is a kind of input so I can use the CODE only as a cabinet using other device like heads, power amps and etc. connected there, while I don't use the main input for the guitar ? Or the "Loudspeaker 8OHM" is an output to use with others cabinets in parallel?
Just bought new Code 100H head. It has an 8ohm output. Can I plug this into the 4 ohm jack in Mono of Cab? Or do I have to use the 16ohm jack in Mono?
Still waiting for my answer about which casters or wheels, I can't believe you didn't know that the 2x12 extension cabinet that is made for your CODE 100H that I bought from you, comes with heavy black plastic fittings with threads, four on the bottom. I would think that they are pretty common..........I appreciate your time, honestly.......thanks...D.Wells
Can anyone tell me which casters to get for my 2x12 extension cabinet I use with my code 100 H, thanks.
Can the speakers be upgraded on the Code 412 cabinet? If so, is it something a person can do who’s never changed a speaker before, or would it need professional installation?
I use de Plexi/Classic 100W for an Angus Young tone. When I crank up the volume above 1/3 I got a lot of feedback noise. It is like the sound of a mic that picks up its own sound from a speaker. Whatever I try do to, it won't go away.
I bought this amp with the CODE 412 Cabinet for stage performances, but it is unusable this way. Can you please help me to solve thsis problem?
Can the Code 100 Combo be connected to your Code 4 x 12 Cabinet that is used with the Code 100H please?
Hello, Marshall forum family. I just purchased the CODE 100H (head only). I have a Marshall cabinet with 4x12 MG series, and I hate the sound of this combination! Does anyone have advice for a replacement speaker?
Thank You All
i'm pretty new to the whole cabinet with heads mixing and matching, i have only used combo's before and i am wondering about the power output of the code 100H which should be 100 watts if i am correct but the 412 cabinet is rated at 200 watts? so are you kind of limited as to what the cabinet can do or how does the whole power rating work? i ordered the 100H and 412 cab but i just want to be sure i'm not missing out on something bcs the power rating isn't correct
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 have a code 100H connected to a 4x12 cabinet. I want to use my Boss ME-80, as I have stored a number of presets. I have plugged my guitar into the ME-80 and the ME-80 into the input of the amp, however the volume of the amp is significantly decreased, I have turned the ME-80 volume up to max with little affect, I have also turned all the FX on The code 100H off. The volume is very poor, worse with my Gibson SG, than with my Fender Strat. Is there a better way to set up my ME-80, e,g through the FX loop, and how would I do it. Would this solve the problem?
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'm running a Code 100h head through MG 4x12 cabinet. This set up is load at home, but a band rehearsal I can hardly be heard above the drums and bass.
That's with the patch volumes on 8-9 and master volume around 8-9 also.
Do I need to look at noise gate settings, presence, resonance etc or just put an EQ pedal in front of it?
I've heard others say that they gig regularly with the Code 100 without any issues.
