My first post here, so apologies if I'm out of line on Forum protocol! I just bought a used MG250DFX used on Reverb. It's my first Marshall after a lifetime of dreaming of having one!
Where could one find the original owners manual if there is one for download, as well as find out what type of speakers came with the original unit?
THIS ISSUE IS STILL ACTUAL !!! THE MASTER VOLUME ADJUSTMENT IS NOT LINEAR !!! PLEASE MAKE A FIRMWARE UPDATE TO SOLVE THAT !!!
I've noticed that there is rattling/jangling coming from the amp (not the speaker) when playing notes between low A and C and their respective octaves above. It sounds like it is coming from the EL34 valves - is this due to the way that they are mounted without spring dampers? They have not gone microphonic as far as I can tell, and are otherwise performing as expected, so I feel this is more a mechanical issue with the chassis/mounting, or it's just an undesirable characteristic of the valves themselves. What I'd ideally like to know is, do all Origin 20Cs do this or is this the first anyone has heard about this?
I've removed every external variable there could be, moving the amp to another location and isolating it from floor vibrations in the studio. I've taken the 'amp' out of the cabinet so that I could lightly tap the valves, and check the screws around the supports are not loose. You can generate the rattle (or very similar) just by tapping lightly with the handle of a screwdriver, on both valves. This is what I was expecting if it was just physical vibrations from the speaker causing them to rattle in sypmathy. The rattling sound does not get amplified, so it's not in the audio path.
It's enough to be offputting when tracking/practicing in the studio unless pushing out really high volume so that you can only hear the guitar. I play fairly clean a lot of the time so it is more obvious under those conditions.
Would really appreciate some advice. If the answer is, "It's the same for all and there's not much that can be done..." then ok, I just need to know. That said, I spotted there was some sort of similar issue perhaps on Class 5 amps that a kit was developed for to resolve? I may have misunderstood though.
If there is any further mechanical troubleshooting to be done then please let me know. I wouldn't want to void the warranty status if possible. For what it's worth, I'm a systems and support engineer for a large format mixing console company, so I'm competent enough to poke around as required... just figured someone may have alreday solved this one before I carry on!
What setting do you use to get the Code 50 to act as a amplifier/speaker with no modeled effects?
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
I've had a DSL40c for a year or two, and it worked fine until a few months ago. While playing, the sound cut out and there was a slight burning smell. I replaced all tubes and pre amps and it worked fine in testing, but then did the same thing when I got it home. Repair guy thought it was a pre amp issue so changed those out again. It worked fine in testing, and then did the same thing again when we got it home. This time when we turned it back on, it would work, but sound would go up and down sporatically with some popping and crackling. Replaced the tubes again, and it worked fine for an hour. Then the sound cut out, and we noticed it would not switch channels. After turning it off and letting it cool down, we turned it on again and it worked fine and channels would change. I'm not sure what to do at this point. My weekend routine of dropping the amp off and then getting it back (with high-hopes) has gotten old. The problems have occurred while plugged straight into the guitar, as well as through a pedal board. Also, the problems have occurred via multiple power sources in different locations (i.e. not always through the same wall socket).
Thanks for your help
Hi! As the tile says, does Marshall have any plans to make the CODE EDITOR for Mac as well?
Any plans to release a Windows desktop app for managing presets via USB connection? I'm not an Android or iPhone user. Editing via amp panel is ok, but somewhat tedious.
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!
I have recently received the Marshall Acton 2 speaker which has a very good sound and design!
However it works only on my IOS phone, under Windows 10, I can pair the device but get's a message of battery low and cannot choose it as speaker.
Any tip or help?
I reset the bluetooth already a few times
i switch through my presets with the Marshall PEDL-91009, however, this pedalboard only has 3 switches and a bank switch, however i would like to have a pedalboard with more than 3 preset switch button for faster recall ... is there a solution (maybe via MIDI) , or a compatible footswitch that i am unaware of?
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.
can i use a bass guitar with the code 50 and what is the best preset?
When I try to load preset from code to pc, there is: Error while decoding sysex: Error_Bad_Device_ID. How can I fix it?
Hi, is it possible to see the Amps I have registered on my profile?
Hi, I got my Code 100h today and I want to use my FX board (Line 6 Firehawk FX) with the FX loop of the code. I used the 4-cable method and triple checked that the wiring and routing is correct...
Guitar to the input of the firehawk. FX send of the firehawk to the guitar input of the Code. FX send of the Code to firehawk FX return. Line output of the firehawk to the Code‘s FX return. Placed the FX loop in the firehawk routing.
However, the Code‘s FX loop doesn‘t seem to work. No FX from the firehawk. I cant find a mix option or FX loop activation within the Code.
Please help to check is my Emberton original?

Hello Group! I am about to receive my new Marshall Origin 50 watt head on Monday (March 5th). I'm excited as hell! I was looking for a 50 watt platform to go through my hand made Tweed 1X12 cab with a EVM12L that I built three years ago. I just had a bad expierience buying a Fender Bandmaster VM with a blown digital effects board. The repair facility could not obtain this part from anywhere. I wound up returning it to Reverb.com and was out all the repair money, two 5 hour round trips and $55 to ship it back. I was really devistated until (by accident) I stumbled onto this Origin series amp. I owned a few Marshalls in my day but this one really caught my eye. My question to you guys is this; normally amps come through with pretty basic tubes. I have no idea what the Origin comes with as far as stock tubes. Being the perfectionist that I am and the gear freak I've always been, I'm already wanting to upgrade the 12AX7's (EC83s) and the EL34s. Any suggestions as to a good upgrade or are the stock tubes pretty good? Thanks guys (and gals)
For those who gig with their marshall codes! Do you use any external pedals? Not so much wah or additional effects more along the lines of a booster pedal?
Great to hear what people’s set ups are like!
