As pointed out in these blogs the Code series locks up during editing and doesn't have an app for Mac users. These issues go back to al least June of this year. When is Marshall going address these issuse other than saying "a solution is coming soon?" I recently purchased a Code 50 but I am not going to hold on to it if Marshall is not going to support it.
I have looked for a definite answer to this and have not found one. I played my amp the other night with no problems, but last night as I turned on the amp it just died on me as soon as I turned the standby off. There was no noise, pops, crackles, fizzes. It just turned off. I checked the main fuse and it was blown. I have not had any issues with tubes and they have not shown any signs of wearing out. I made sure my amp was connected to the cab correctly (remember i have had this rig for 8 years) and that I had a speaker cable rather than a guitar cable. I found online there could be issues with impedence and what not. I took the back off of my cab and noticed that a positive lead on one of my v30's became disconnected. I thought, 'Could it be?" So I reconnected it and replaced the fuse and the amp worked as advertised. I played for an hour or so and no problems yet. Could it be that the discoonnected positive lead on one speaker caused it to blow a main fuse?
I bought the Major III bluetooth headphones but I have a big problem when connecting them to my windows 10 computer. My sound is terrible when using the headset. If I deactivate the hands free telephony setting in the device's properties it switches to headphones and the sound is perfect but the microphone stops working.
Is there a way to fix this problem?
I hope someone can please help me here.
I have tried to use various methods in connecting my code 25 via USB to my windows 10 with no luck.
Can someone please tell me how I can do this because I just purchased the amp a week ago for primarly recording and I cannot get it to work.
It played my track out of the code speaker for a moment but thats all. I continue to get errors from windows saying that the USB is not recognized,
I have ASIO drivers installed and use reaper as a recording interface.
Please help! I would be much appreaciative !!!
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?
I see many other presets available form other people that are NOT Marshall assigned presets. Most of these have a different name like a user name assigned by their creator. How on earth does one name their own or edited preset so it can be assigned to the CODE and into the footswitch. I specifically DO NOT want to save the edited preset under the original name like American OD or Plexi. I would like my own name like - Heavy Classic 1 and Heavy Classic 2 or 3.
Not a lot honestly. I've had a 50 watt Marshall DSL head for about 6 years now, and it's been wonderful.
The thing is, Marshalls do the Marshall sound very well. But people do not have the space to make the Marshall come alive. Even 50 watts is way too loud to cut loose and open it up to a really nice saturated volume. To keep up with the br00tal metalz times, Marshall has been increasing the preamp gain stages. I have 4 preamp tubes in my amp, and it has way too much gain on tap. Preamp gain will always sound fizzy and harsh compared to poweramp gain, and Marshalls produce way too much volume to open up the poweramp to a nice tonal level, especially in the era of excellent PA systems and great microphones
I think that a lot of folks throw money at the problem, buying independently built amps made with period correct caps and resistors, PTP wiring, etc. But the differences are marginal at best when comparing two identical circuits (mathematically speaking) build with the types of parts used at Marshall vs. NOS stuff by indie builders. I honestly think half of the appeal is placebo effect. Players fool themselves into thinking their indie build JCM800 copy sounds sooooooo much better than a newly made JCM800 from Marshall. They're the same, any difference will come down to the speakers, microphones, PAs, and guitars used.
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!
Yesterday, I went to my local guitar shop and purchased a Code 100 2x12 Combo and it came with a two-way footswitch. I assumed it would work with it considering I knew it came with a footswitch. However, the footswitch doesnt do much. The effects side does nothing to my amp and when I press the Normal / OD side twice, it will change my amp preset in reverse. For example, if I'm using my JCM 800 tone and I press the Normal / OD button twice, it will go to preset 99. Did they give me the wrong footswitch? Was I supposed to receive the Code programmable footswitch instead and the retail clerk didn't know what he was doing? Or is there a way to program the two way footswitch so it actually can be used effectively rather than a paperweight with a long cable on it? Please let me know as this has been frustrating for me. I play live shows and have shows coming up and can't afford to not have a footswitch.
i’d Like to know which fuse is the proper one to replace on my Woburn speaker?
and by the way, what can cause this problem...?
(can it be affected by near electrical products or a bad/defective wall socket?)
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’ve just bought a Code 25 with footswitch and have just started to look at the presets. As far as I can see each amp sound corresponds to a number - for example Bluesbreaker Reverb is assigned to #44. Is there a way or re-assigning this e.g. to #1 ? I’d like to be able access some of the presets easily rather than having to scroll through all of the numbers.
Apologies if this has already been asked on the forum
Hi, I am trying to register this product on your website but it keeps telling me there is no model number. How do I actually register a stanmore speaker?
Code 50 Amplifier. Recently purchased.
Using the headphone jack, the volume output to headphones is quite low. I have to increase the Code 50 Main control as well as the guitar volume control when I plug in headphones. Is this normal for the Code 50? I use Audio Technica ATH-M30X (47 ohm) studio monitor headphones, as well as AKG (32 ohm) phones.
I do not have this issue using my other amplifier, which is a Fender amp. With that amp, very little volume adjustment is needed when I plug in my phones.
Problems with the Marshall Code Gateway app music playback feature noticed on a Samsung A3 (2016) smartphone running Android 5.1.1.
1) The currently loaded tune name is usually not updated on the display when switching to a new tune. I say usually, because I've seen it change on a couple of occasions. The album graphics however appear to change as expected, regardless of the tune name displayed.
2) The volume control slider on the display defaults to about 1/5, however the output seems to default to full volume. Moving the slider upwards immediately drops the volume significantly, and it does not even seem to reach back to the intial volume level with the slider in the rightmost position.
3) At least on one occasion there was some skipping in the playback of the tune and noticeable tempo changes while adjusting the output volume using the app slider. Might also have been caused by moving around in the room with the smartphone in hand.
Why in the world would Marshall advertise right on their site for the code amps that you can record the code amp into your DAW, but not provide an asio driver? This is false advertising. Yes there is asio4all, it is not for a Marshall per se, and it doesn't work real well, it only records at 48khz, most daws will go to 96k, if not all the way to 192K? What gives Marshall? Plase put out an Asio driver for this otherwise great product. please. It can't be that hard if you can write the"code" for this amp. You are relly missing the boat here guys
I have had my amp JCM 2000 TSL 122 combo for a few years. I used it occasionally when I first acquired it (around 2008) and then fairly regularly in a band for about a year in 2009/20010. It was then put in my wardrobe and came out to use ocaasionally for a couple of gigs and then went back in the wardrobe until earlier this year.
In 2016 I have gotten together with some friends to form a new covers band and we have rehearsed at pretty big rehearsal room volume with live drums etc. at an average of 2 rehearsals a month since March.
Today, I started to set my amp up as usual - plugged in and turned on with standby. Took off stanby with all 3 channel gains and volumes at ZERO. 1st channel (Clean) some gain + some volume (uaual position around 2 and a bit....rarely get it to 3, haha!) and it made all the usual signs of working well and giving me a great clean sound.
Turned to the other guitarist for a quick conversation about pics he bought on e-bay and I found my volume dropped!!??!!
I checked leads, connections, another guitar, but my Marshall is not doing what it has been doing. Our other guitarist put his guitar through it and it needed almost full gain and full volume on each channel to get any volume on the output.
I turned ot off and used an amp that the rehearsal studio had available. Effects and leads all good, so the issue is definitely the amp.
Am I experiencing a dead valve, or set of valves, or could it be something more sinister? This is my first valve amp and appreciate that these things are much more sucsceptible to issues and need much more maintenance than their solid state counterparts.
Any advice on this would be much appreciated. I have searched the issue and found that there are some sites with negative thoughts towards the JCM 200 series and the TSL 122 in particular with biasing issues etc., but what I am reading is going over my head a little, but looks quite damning???
Thanks for any help,
when I use the playback function the music selected doesn't play within the app. The music on my iPhone 6 is on Apple Music and I even tried downloading it onto the phone but that still didn't work. I wasn't sure if I was missing something..... Thanks for 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.
