I'm a beginner. I've experiemented with all the presets of my CODE50. It's an amazing amp/speaker combo. However, I would like to have a better understanding of what the switch and 4 knobs do on my Epiphone Les Paul, apart from all the amazing things that the CODE50 can do. This would seem to require that I set the CODE50 to work as a "pure amplifier," solely increasing the volume of the guitar output, without adding any effects to modify/model its output. Can I achieve this by doing the following using the iPhone app?
Turn to Pedal 1 preset (and not use a pedal)
Keep Pre-Amp at Natural
Turn Power-Amp and Cabinet off
Turn all FX off
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?
Might be a dumb question, but I'm trying to learn. I bought a little combo amp DSL40CR. I want to buy a 4x12 cabinet and use it with this amp instead of buying a head. I believe I need a 16ohm cabinet, I was looking at the Marshall mx412ar. My question is would this cabinet work with amp, and if so, what would be the correct place on the amp to put the audio cable so I don't destroy my amp?
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?
Hi, I'm trying to find out how old my Marshall cabinet is and the name of the model?
It only says "Made in England" and "SER Nº 5635" on the back.
Any kind of answer is appreciated!
If this topic has been covered before then please excuse my new member error. Anyways, I’m hoping to find an answer for a particular problem I’m having. I’ve owned my amp for a little under a year and I’ve noticed that since I’ve had it paired with the cabinet I have now it has little to no natural overdrive/distortion, that classic crunch we all know. I know the amp is rated at 50 W however the cabinet I have a paired with is rated for 140 W. I am new to using these types of amps and cabinets so if my cabinet is stronger than I am please tell me. I do not want to have to send it back for maintence if it’s not needed. I also have been hearing more humming than normal and occasional buzzing emitting from the cabinet.
Can the Code 100 Combo be connected to your Code 4 x 12 Cabinet that is used with the Code 100H please?
Is there a matching 1x12 cab to pair up with the DSL40CR? Would be nice to have one like the 1922 cab for 2x12 combos. I am not sure if there is any 1x12 extension cab lines up perfectly with with DSL40CR cab. The MX112 seems to pair up with the DSL20CR so it doesn't look that is compatible as far a size match. Just adding to the wish list.
This is probably something you've answered before, but I want to run an extension cabinet with my DSL40C, found the PRS Stealth 70 to be the appropriate size to enable stacking and, since it's a 16 ohm cabinet, I assume I can plug the internal speaker into one of the 8 ohm jacks and the PRS Stealth cabinet into the other 8 ohm jack.
Oh, by the way, I should have checked before I dropped the cash on the cabinet, I know...
Someone unplugged my cabinet. Which speaker output should I use with the built-in speakers?
Hello, I recently acquired a vs100 head and it has a lot of weird noise going on. I'm guessing it's down to the preamptube and I'm going to replace it when I get cash for a tube and if that fails I know a good place to get it serviced. What I really need help with is finding a 4x12 cab that goes well with the head. I want to get a good heavy sound going, I'm going to be using it to play doom metal mainly so if anyone has any suggestions. I would prefere a marshall cab and I've been looking at the 1960A, 1960B and 1960BV but can't really decide from what I have been able to google. There are no stores near me where I can try any cabs out either so I'm a bit stranded right now.
I just purchased aother marshall head and cabinet JVM205h and 1960 Lead 300 watts cabinet can any one tell me about the JVM205h good bad or so on I all ready know about cabinet great
Hello everyone. I just purchased a used DSL40 today and I want to use an extended cabinet (16ohms) as well. Do I move the internal speaker to an 8ohm spot and the external cabinet to the other 8ohm spot? Thanks - Chris
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
Hi there everyone, it's my first post here. I just acquired (2nd hand) Marshall VBA400 Bass head amplifier. It sounds really great but I just want to ask anyone from here has got the same experienced with an audible "humming sound" when the Standby Switch is turned ON... is it normal for this model? one more question, when i got the VBA400 it comes with Marshall MG412A speaker cabinet (4x12")... are they both match to use technically?
I have recently been given the above amp and before I connect it to a speaker and switch it on I am concerned to know the correct protocol for connecting a speaker cabinet(s). The speaker output sockets have no information directly next to them but a label elsewhere on the rear of the amp states "WARNING. Not to be used with speaker cabinets of less than 4 ohms"
My queries are:-
1. Is it safe (i.e. without risk of damage to the amp) to use just one speaker output as long as it is connected to a speaker cabinet of 4 ohms minimum impedance and appropriate wattage?
2. When using both speaker outputs can they both be connected to cabinets each of 4 ohms minimum impedance or are the outputs paralleled in which case would I need to work with two cabinets each of 8 ohms to arrive at a 4 ohms minimum impedance in total?
Apologies if the answer to this seems obvious but I have a little knowledge of these matters and while a little knowledge can be 'a dangerous thing' it can also lead you to be concerned (possibly unnecessarily) about getting things right!
Thanks in anticipation
Hello, I recently purchased a used Marshall Amp /HalfStack model 8100 ValveState 100 watt head with a model MG412 , A Cabinet. the amps out put is 100watts RMS /4 ohm and the cabinet is 120watts RMS /8 ohm is this a problem ?
Is it possible to play two different tube amp heads at the same time out of one 1960a cab? Mine has the switch on the back to make the cab run in stereo mode and I was curious if it would be possible to use both inputs for independent heads. Of course the impedance would have to be matched (8 ohm - 8 ohm), but I have no idea if it would handle the amp load properly or not. Trying to find out for sure so I can avoid breaking something if it's not possible.
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
Does this service exist ?
I am looking for a 2 x 12 guitar cabinet in standard black grain tolez with 'bluesbreaker cloth'.
