I just purchased a Marshall JCM 800 Head and a 1960a cabinet for my office (small space not the best for this set up), but I am very new to marshall amps and heads.
would anyone know which settings on the back of the head to set to? it is a small space and dont want to mow any down with the volume. Everytime I switch it off I head a very loud electric 'switch' sound, sort of scary and worries me (dont want to damage the eqipment).
Any suggestions from anyone.
Thanks so much in advance...
I have an old acoustic AS80R that I have been using with a semi acoustic electric guitar for a nice clean sound. I like the sound of the combo (it has Celestion speaker elements), but the amplifier makes a constant 100 Hz buzz as soon as I turn it on, even when no guitar is connected. The buzz is louder than what I consider normal. Two professional service shops have tried to repair it.
Could I use it as speaker cabinet and replace the amp with a separate amplifier & how to do it?
I have seen several Code 412 images posted like a traditional Marshall A model. The Code 412 that came is the angled cabinet that I don't like as much. Is there a different model number/name, or are a lot of companies just posting the wrong picture?
My code-100 code head sounds awesome with 4x12 cabinet for live sound.......... But living in small quarters I need headphones to work properly..... not happening.. when I plug in headphones I lose sound .........any suggestions ? I shouldn't have to crank up Master volume and Gain and volume knobs to max just to get a muddled sound!!!!! Thanks for you help

Does the company have a plan to make the DIY plastic corner protectors for the Code100H and the Code4x12 cab? It would be nice to protect these babies too. I've bought a lot of different brand protectors inclusing the OEM Marshall ones but none of 'em fit right. Thanks!
Has anyone used a Code with a great digital effects processor like zoom g5/g5n, boss gt 10/100 or line 6 pod hd 500? If so, how did you set your amp? I set the natural preamp, marshall 100w power and a 1960x cabinet but it didn't sound great.
Hello guitar players,
today I got my new Code 100 head and connected it with my 2x12 speaker 1936 from marshall. I tried the presets and they sound very cool but the sound is in my opinion a little bit to muffled and not clear enough.
So I kicked out the cabinet in the settings and then the sound is very clear and cool for me. But whats exactly the sense of the cab when it sounds not good in my opinion. Do I really need them?
Thanks for your answers! :)
Does the 100c have the capability to run a second 2x12 cabinet? It surely has enough power since the head is also 100 watts.

Any Ideas of when this Marshall 2X15 Cab was made or replacement value for insurance purposes? I have ported it and since the wheels were missing added Ernie Ball casters. Thanks in advance.
I live in Australia, and purchased this cabnet when I was 18 and Im now 51
I was told by the previous owner that it was a late 60's cab
Stupidly in the 80's I recovered it in a stylish grey carpet (as per photos)
I am now trying to take it back to original and trying to find the Head to match.
If anyone could please tell me the vintage and if its worth doing.
Many thanks and look forward to any replies
not a question, but I just got a switched 1/4 female jack and a 1 hole can to put in the back of my code 50 to allow me to connect it to a 4ohm external cabinet - like a Raven RG412. I will post pictures after I do it.
I have a Marshall 1936 2x12 cabinet, but I am unsure how to correctly use the input jacks (8 ohm/16ohm).
Could you please send/post a PDF of the user manual?
Thank you so much!
Hello! I recently picked up an odd little Marshall bass cab and I wanted to learn more about it. The people I bought it from received it in a storage container auction and it appears old and well traveled. It's a 2x8 bass cab. Tried searching for anything like it but I couldn't find anything on it. Super weird. Sounds really cool! Any info would be appreciated, thanks!
I'm desperately on the look out for a JTM30 1x12 extension cabinet (JTM-C12 I believe is the correct part no.)
Does anyone have one they want to part with? Failing that...Marshall, can you make me one!?
I bought a Valvestate 8100 head with a AVT 4×12 cabinet but its lacking a serious amount of gain & sustain even on max. I changed the pre-amp tube but it didn't make a difference. It still sounds dull and weak. What could be the cause of it?
Hi there, what is the correct cabinet for the jtm45 head? thanks
I am using a 3203 w/a GK 2x12 cabinet running at 8 ohms. I am considering purchasing a friend's 2x12 Splawn 8 ohm cabinet, and running the cabinets together as a stack. I am wondering how the 3203 will handle 4, 2x12's. Not well versed on the ohm conversions here and would like some help. Thanks!
Bought used cab labeled 1960AC
Green backs all labeled 12KBT 1221/18
Would like to know the age of the cab.
Since the speakers are all marked the same I assume they are a matched set???
Could a lower V1 tube make the green channel cleaner when I play hard,it sounds like it distorts when I dig in hard almost like a bad speaker but even a new cabinet rattles like that,any suggestion?
