I have the Marshall AS50D.
Can i use the line out jack to connect a wired headphone to it so i can use that as in-ear monitoring? Or will it blow up my headphones, my ears and my head?
Could i use the D.I. Out to connect a device like the Fischer Amps mini body pack, so i can plug my headphone into the Fischer Amps mini body pack and thus have a volume knob close at hand? Link: http://fischer-amps.de/en/in-ear-monitoring/mini-body-pack-xlr-oder-klinken-eingang.html
Or does Marshall have it's own solution for this?
I use the Marshall AS50D to sing and accompany myself with the guitar. When i have a gig in a restaurant they want me to play silently (lol) but then i have trouble hearing myself because of the ambient noise and i start singing out of pitch which is like a weapon of mass destruction.
But i can't say: stop talking, stop eating and stop using your cutlery, because, well you know, it's a restaurant and all that. So therefore i need an in ear solution. Preferably wired because wireless is too expensive and not necessary too, since i'm not allowed to stagedive in a restaurant (anymore).
I own a DSL20HR amp and I'd like to connect two 1x12 speaker cabinets to the amp simultaneously. Both cabinets are Marshall 1912 cabinets (1x12", 8ohm speaker). There are three speaker cabinet output jack sockets in DSL20HR:
one 1 x 16 OHM socket to connect a single 16ohm speaker cabinet, and
two 1x16 OHM sockets to connect two 16ohm speaker cabinets simultaneously or to connect a single 8 Ohm speaker cabinet to either one of these sockets.
How do I connect two 8ohm cabinets to this amp? I'd like to connect these cabs in series to have 16ohms in result, but the cabs don't have sockets for connecting them in series. There is only one input in 1912 cab. And if I find a device to connect this two amps in series, do I then connect the first cab's input cable to the DSL20HRs single 1x16 OHM input (the first input option)? Is this safe? The manual doesn't say anything about connecting cabinets in series.
Thank you! The new amp is great btw!
I purchased CODE 50 and I would like to recording.
I aware ASIO4all is recommended however, youtube (/ or media player in my deskteop computer) is not available during DAW is lauched.
Thus, I am wondering for direct recording without DAW through just audio interface.
1. I have audio interface with two (2) input manufactured by Kurzweil company.
Via headphone (line out) of CODE, can I connect this audio interface ? If, so, INPUT connetion or headphone out in Audio interface ?
No damage to CODE ? (In internet post, I read CODE probably can be damaged if connected to Audio interface. I am not sure)
Thanks for your advice.
Hello! I have a Marshall DSL40c, which I absolutely love. I swapped the speaker out for a Celestion Vintage 30 (16 ohm) a little over a year ago, and it sounds great. However, I recently got a lower wattage tube amp (Vox AC4TV) and have been running it through the DSL40c (basically using the DSL as a speaker cab, with the power chord disconnected).
So here's the problem: After 2 days of using this configuration, the DSL has started making a sound when I play the vox through its speaker. The best way I can describe the sound is that it is like a tabmourine, like those little metal disks jingling together. It does this on certain notes, like the open low E string, or a C chord, but not on other notes like a B chord (i.e. 1 fret away).
When I run the the Vox alone through its internal speaker - no issues at all. When I run the DSL amp section alone through it's vintage 30, no tambourine sounds, although it seems that the green clean channel is lower volume than it used to be (the other 3 channels seem to me the same volume as normal). There is also some instability in the volume (goes in and out, but in a sublte way). There is some clicking and popping when I first fire it up, but this stops after it has been on for a while so not sure if this is normal or not.
I have been looking up reasons why amps may rattle, but everything I am finding describes issues with the tubes that are being played through - my issue seems to be a bit different, since the rattling (tambourine jingle) sound I am hearing seems to be coming from the Marshall when I am not using its tubes (playing through the Vox as a head).
Is it possible that a tube has gone bad in the Marshall, and when I play the Vox through the Marshall's speaker, the vibration is rattling the broken tube and making this tambourine sound? Would a reduction in the volume of the green clean channel imply it is a preamp tube vs power amp tube (since the other channels are unaffected?)
Thanks for any help you can offer. I don't mind taking it in to a tech, but I have read a lot of posts of people who took their amps to techs and had tubes changed, etc. and the problem persisted. I want to have a pretty good idea of the problem before I start investing in having it fixed.
Need a Replacement Footswitch for JCM 2000 DSL 100 head from 2003. originally had a 2 button footswitch. What models footswitches will work with it? Thanks
I bought Marshall CODE 25, connect USB cabel to PC, install ASIO4ALL driver, run Nuendo 4.3, driver Control panel show MONO IN - STEREO OUT, record fine but there is no stereo streaming from PC to headphones, only MONO. Everything is OK in Nuendo Audio Control Panel. I try with Media Player with MP3 files, same problem, only MONO. Try Abletone Live - same problem.
Is this normal for this amp, or mailfunction?
Hey all - new to the forums, new to Marshall amps and had a few questions about the Code 50 I just ordered that will be here in a day or so. I have played my guitars through my buddy's Code 50 and am familiar with editing the patches, tweaking the tones and getting the sounds that I want from the amp to fit my playing style. What I am not familiar with is the use of footswitch and any Midi capabilities it may have.
1) Can one use just a regular on/off type of old school footswitch to turn an effect or amp on/off or initiate a patch change? I have several old school footswitches I have successfully used on many different amps, albeit older amps, and it has always worked. Curious since the Marshall footswitch actually holds presets if anything like that would work.
2) As far as Midi goes, I come from a Line6 multi-effects world and know that many of their multi-effect units have the capability to control effects on/off/parameters and patch/bank switching via Midi commands. Does the Code software have anything like that if hooked up to a PC/Mac running a DAW that has the capability to send midi control commands to change patches/effects realtime during recording/playback.
Thanks for any input and excited to get this amp. I am a player of over 30 years and have only ever played through Crate amps for the past 20+ years that have finally given up and the cost to repair is more than new. Bash Crate all you want but they were loud and proud and with the right EQ/effects loops made some damn good musical sounds.
Hello, can anyone tell me which brand / model of speaker is used in code 25?
Is it possible to control and make changes to the existing preloaded patches of the Code App via the USB port connected to a Windows 10 Laptop?
or the Marshall Gateway App works only with Android/iPhone via Bluetooth?
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'd really like the ability to roll back firmware updates. The tone of this amp has got worse with each firmware update I've installed. I wish I would have left it at the default when I got it.
The first firmware update I installed ruined the DSL, and 50's British amps, and now this last update has ruined everything else. All the presets I created sound completely different now. What a waste!
I'm really beginning to regret buying a digital amp.
I recently bought a Marshall 2x12" Cab with Marshall Goldback speakers mounted, type SPK100, 8 ohms, 80W each. As Marshall does not make speakers I am curious who the manufacturer is. The speaker's cage does not look like a Celestion. It seems to be an Eminence at first glance.
Does anybody have any information? Thank you!
How do I set up my new CODE50 USB to my CUBASE9? "CODE" shows up in CUBASE Inspector for MIDI Tracks, but no signal.
Do I need a CODE driver?
Does the CODE50 USB only send MIDI?
Does it send audio waveform signals?
I viewed a couple of Marshall video tutorials that didn't help and it says practically nothing in the download manual.
What options are available to replace the stock 4 ohm speaker that comes in the Code 50? I would like to upgrade to a Celetion or something similar. The stock speaker flutters at volume when using the heavy distorted/gain presets. Any recommedations?
So I just got my CODE50 two days ago and yesterday was the first day I had to play around on it, and that being at a live rehearsal of all places. I didn't get to do much tweaking, but I noticed a problem with the EQ. If you have all buttons deactivated then the Bass Mid and Treble knobs do absolutely nothing, NOTHING... I tried using the Natural preamp thinking that maybe the EQ knobs are strictly digital and an amp or preamp needed to be activated to enable the EQ to function. When the Natural preamp was selected, however, the overall volume (master knob all the way up and the volume knob at 12 o'clock) was so low hardly anything could be heard. Am I missing a menu option to set the volume or something?
Also, I've saw a lot of people having trouble getting the Marshall Gateway app to connect to their CODE amps, myself being one of these people unfortunately, but I haven't saw anyone come up with a definitive solution other than 1. Updating the Firmware 2. Turn the amp and phone off then restart both of them and try again. 3. Delete the amps Bluetooth profile from your phone and repeat step 2. 4. Call Marshall support. I can get my Samsung Note 5 itself to connect to the amp (getting a weird message on my phone that says verify such and such number is the correct PIN for the Marshall amp but not having any further prompts on my phone or on the amp after tapping OK, but still connecting regardsless), but when I bring up the Marshall Gateway app and go into the menu to connect to the amp I can hit the scan button all day and it will NEVER find my CODE50. What the huh?!!! With all the other people I've saw on this forum having the same problem with the Bluetooth connectivity, you would think there would be a end-all-fix-all solution to such a massive problem. Has anyone heard anything or should I send this amp back for a refund while I still can?
Just got a code 100 shipped to me today, opened it up pluged it in and no sound, plug headset in i get sound thru the headset but nowhere else, seams if i crank it i hear a faint sound from speakers tho, but otherwise any help ?
I just got a Marshall TSL 60 head and am having trouble with the footswitch.
Of the five buttons: Clean - Crunch - Lead - Reverb* - FX Loop*
The Reverb and FX Loop are both latching switches and work fine. The Clean, Crunch and Lead switches are all momentary and there's some sort of digital logic switching going on on the board. The problem is with these switches.
When I turn the amp on, the Clean switch LED comes on. When I hit the crunch or lead switch, nothing happens (No LED, no change from clean).
I thought it was an issue with the switches, so I replaced them. Now Crunch and Lead still do nothing, but when I hold down the Clean it switches to Overdrive for as long as I am holding the switch. When I let go, it goes back to clean.
Anyone have any thoughts why the switches aren't doing their job? Could it be a fried transistor that's supposed to be controlling the logic switching that's going on (Anyone know a good way to test this?). Some more info on the footswitch...

I just ordered my CODE 25 but I couldn't find any info about bluetooth playback, only via input jack.
Is that possible? Thanks a lot!
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!
