Who has been working on the schematic for the new DSL 1w (2018)?
I've got mine open and have started thinking about some tone mods but would love any help with the schematic, part schematic or even a mod list.
I'd be totally happy to hack mine up first if anyone has a mod idea too.
I can read a schematic but I'd completly f%^$ it up if I tried to wrtie it out just via the PCB so if you'd like to help let me know and I'll send the high res pics ( assuming you dont have a 1w yourself).
Also I'd be all ears for some tube advice. I've put a 5751 inplace of one of the 12AX7 and its a bit better to my ears. I'm going to say V2 is the dirt channels V yeah?
So far I love it and i'll be interested to see what Blackstar do next with their future 1w.
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 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.
How many were produced from the following 50th anniversary limited edition amps?
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.
I am experiencing terrible interference when trying to use my Code 50 via Bluetooth / Gateway (Apple) App while recording on my Mac in Logic Pro X. I am using a microphone to record the Code 50 and using the Bluetooth to change patches. The clicks/pops/noise/interference is loud enough to interfere with the recording process. Perhaps a DESKTOP (Apple) Gateway App via Code USB might be a solution for all users experiencing similar issues? I am running the most current Firmware. Any current solution to my noise issues? 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.
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 need your help! I connected my Marshall Major III’s to my iPhone 6 this morning as I had just gotten them for Christmas. Then I opened up an iPhone 11 Pro and now the headphones won’t connect to any phone. They don’t show up in the Bluetooth finder thing and I can’t find a solution anywhere. I’ve been on Marshall’s website but the question at the bottom ‘Was this article helpful’ is filled with many thumbs down. I think other people have this problem, so please... anyone!
I was just searching a couple websites for the Code 100W combo amp and it appears to be removed from some websites while one stated that this amp was no longer available. Did Marshall discontinue this amp? If so, are they planning on replacing it or just moving forward with the 25W, 50W, and 100W head? Why was it discontinued?
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.
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?
The CODE 100 isn’t have a line out ????
I see just Send/Return, the out 8Ω and the F/C I believe only to footswitch..
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!
My Stanmore 2 recently stopped being able to connect to Spotify using the Spotify Connect feature.
I have done a factory reset and tried reconnecting to the internet again.
I tested the Alexa functions and those work, such as asking for the time and weather updates and they are fine, so its just the Spotify Connect.
The Marshall speaker shows up on the list of devices on the Spotify App that I can connect to but it just stays on "Connecting..." when selected.
I can connect fine to my PC and Echo device via Spotify Connect.
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
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 ?
Quite a few people on various forums are concerned about the emulated out of our DSL20H and DSLCR amps. It seems that there is a set level for the emulated line out and headphones which can only be adjusted with either the guitar volume knob of gain channel knob. The channel volume does nothing to the line out/headphones only to the speaker output.
Is this normal behaviour? Where the gain knobs are the only controls on the amp that increases the loudness of headphone/line out.
