Hello Marshall Support Team,
I consider buying a Marshall Code 25 or 50, but I'm really concerned about the master volume problem with these amps, which has been discussed in length in this forum (see ? ? ? or ? ) [sorry, seems the URL-links to the topics are deleted, the topics were "code-25---master-volume-issuses", "code-50-master-volume", "code-master-volume-issue" and "master-volume-marshall-code-50", all about the master volume knob, which goes from very low immediately to very loud].
In one of these threads you seem to acknowledge the problem and state, that your R&D team will look into this.
So here are my questions:
Is this problem solved with newer versions of these amps?
Does the problem show up regularly with all amps or does it affect only some devices?
Is there any chance to replace the Master Volume pot by myself if the problem shows up after some time?
Thx in advance for you reply.
With regards - snoopy
Hallo ich habe das Problem das sich der Footswitch ab und zu wie aufhängt, verdrücke ich mich fängt er an die Banks durchzuzählen und hört nicht mehr auf, oder wechselt auf eine zahl und lässt sich nicht mehr zurückstellen, so das ich wieder zu den Presets komme.
Nur ein Neustart des AMPs hilft das er wieder funktioniert.
Sprich AMP ausschalten warten bis die Lichter des Footswitches ausgehen, und dann wieder Einschalten.
Habt ihr solch ein Problem auch schon einmal gehabt oder eine Idee was das sein könnte.
Dr. Google mag mir da leider auch nicht weiter helfen.
Mein AMP Marshall Code 100 Head
I have an issues when sometimes saving an editted patch on the Android gateway app V1.5.5.
Sometimes some settings (noticibly the gain and volume) do not save and those settings revert back to the previous settings for the patch you are overwritting.
It doesnt seem to matter if you are editing settings in Preset or Library mode. When you click the Save button those settings dont always save and instantly jump back to the previous settings.
I have a Valvestate VS100 but it came without a footswitch. I bought a PEDL-90010 but the switch doesnt actually switch it from O/D to clean - I have to keep my foot pressed down to get the cleant channel - if I lift it it reverts to the overdrive channel. Is this because the PEDL-90010 is not compatible with the VS100?
Thanks in Advance...John
1. Tilt knob - does it affect Treble (above 4khz frequencies) or Upper Mid (1khz - 3 khz) frequencies?
2. Does Master volume knob on this amp, if set to 10, actually produce power amp (EL34s) distortion or is it just a control for the overall volume output (loudness) with no influence whatsoever on power amp distortion ???
Just bought a brand new Marshall SV20H 20/5 head. The item came from Europe and has the two pronged Euro mains lead cable. Amp power rating is 230V.
I used a regular US grounded three pronged cable into my power regulator at 125 volts.
I then went and bought the little plastic 2-pronged Euro to US converter and plugged that into my power regulator with no change.
The power output from the amp is very weak and fizzy/thin. on the high setting?
Is my 125 US Power rating and cable at fault?
How do I use this amp here in the US with a 125 regulated power supply?
I'm looking forward to a firmware update. Is it gonna happen in the near future?
Hola, hace unos dias mi CODE 25 dejo de sonar. Lo prendo, las luces se encieinde, se conecta a Gate, suena por escasos segundo y luego deja de sonar. Lo apago, prendo y lo mismo asi sucesivamente. Alguna idea?
I've tried every type usb cable i got. Could someone please tell me what type of cable i need. I'd like to hook it up to my computer.
I have re downloaded the Marshall Gateway app and once its installed i open it and the following message is displayed....
Context 3D not available: Possible Reason: Wrong render mode or missing device support.
Any ideas Marshall Support????
Hiya, I have the Code 25 Amp and have for the last couple of years. I have recently updated my phone to an Iphone 12 pro.
The Gateway App has installed on my phone. My setting are saying the Code 25 is connected via bluetooth, but the Code 25 and the Gateway App are not connecting.
I have removed the Gateway App from my phone and re-installed it as advised and have re-connected the Bluetooth from the phone to the Amp once again as advised.
I try to scan for the amp but it will not connect via the bluetooth.
Can you please help with a solution.
I have just bought a CODE 25 amp and i am having trouble pairint it with the Gateway app.
I have done all the suggested processes, reboot, re install etc etc...
It was working yesterday afternoon, then in the evening it just will not connect?
The amp connects to th iphone 7 plus, finds the amp in the menu but wont connect, just keeps saying Connection Rejected!
So frustrating, please can you help?
I have a Marshall Origin 50H, its about 7 months old and I've used it perhaps maybe 10 times total for some pretty low volume playing and never used on anything but the lowest 5w setting. I'm using it with a proper 16 ohm Celestion cabinet and proper cables and playing for about 40yrs so know what I'm doing, well, most days that is lol! :)
Anywho, after about 10 minutes the volume drops WAY off and I'm assuming its a power tube since the level of gain doesn't change at all, just the volume and it gets real compressed.
Since I've only had the amp 7 months, would the tubes be covered under warranty in any way? I would hope so due to how little I've used it, thanks for any insight.
I heard a sizzle type of sound one day. I didn't think that was a good thing so I turned the amp off. The next day I began to play and once it got warmed up, sound stopped coming from the speaker. I can shut it off, let it cool down and it will play once again for a few minutes and then it stops again. I have owned the amp for a couple of years and never had this problem before. Is this a common problem? Suggestions?
have a quick query regarding the footswitch for the jcm 2000 dsl 100
does anyone know if it's latching or momentary type
I would like to use same with a gcx audio switcher to change channels?
I have had a chance to spend a few days with the Marshall code 25 and I would like to share with you a few of my findings. I have played guitar professionally for over 30 years and have had all makes and models of guitars and amps in my time, but in general I would have killed for the equipment available to guitarist today.
This is the point where I look at the Code 25 and think “that looks like fun”. I have a few amps kicking about already, mostly gigging volume amps but I also have a Blackstar ID-Core 40, so this would be in reality what I would compare the Code 25 against.
Firstly my experience with the amp and a look around these forums makes one thing apparent. This amp is well named because it is a bit of an enigma.Out of the box I would consider the amplifier not fit for purpose this is really down to a few reasons.
Firstly, some of the presets are just absolutely terrible, I mean some of the worst patches I’ve ever heard on anything, “Small combo” and the “Brit” overdrive amps for instance are shockingly bad. You can make the excuse that all amp and effects units come with bad presets. However this is usually down to strange or weird effects to give bizarre sounds to show off effects but that nobody would ever use in a musical context. However some patches (such as Small Combo) are just basic amp modelling with no effects and are still absolutely terrible. Maybe these sound better on the 50 or 100, but if that’s the case remove them from the 25 it just gives a bad impression.
Secondly, the amp is stupidly loud. I don’t know if this is a marketing decision, but Marshall should look at its target demographic. This thing is a small bedroom practice amp, maybe at a push for some very small live situations, but that is it. Why make the thing so loud? If you need to use this amp near anything over half volume you have bought the wrong amp it’s as simple as that.
Thirdly, some of the modelling is not all it could be with digital artefacts (in the low end in particular), and a fizzy noise gate that for some reason is on patches where there is absolutely no need to have it as the patch is pretty quiet. Once again this is not a professional gigging or recording product and it should be judgged accordingly.
The last bad point I would say against this amp is the tuner, both onboard and on the app are two of the least responsive and wildly inaccurate tuners I have ever seen. Really not even close to tune! Put this down to another marketing tick box.
OK, now the good points.
It seems pretty well made and solid for what it is.
I like the size and weight, ideal for a bedroom practice amp.
I like the complete range of controls on the amp, and how you can do everything on the amp that you can do on the app, and it’s easy to do. Great user interface design work.
I like the Bluetooth features and the app. I know people have had problems with Bluetooth, but both my IOS and Android phones connected right away and are stable. I can stream music no problem from outside the house or in other rooms with no issues.
I like having 100 presets to store all the patches I could want (My Blackstar only had 6, and you can only have 1 for each model).
The headphone socket sounds OK, but if I wanted that as a primary feature I would have just bought headphone amp with effects.
I don’t use the recording over USB feature. If I did I wouldn’t expect something this cheap to be amazing. Once again if you want this you probably have bought the wrong product, and are in the wrong price bracket.
I like the cost, its amazing what it does for the money.
I like the sounds, now that I’ve got rid of the awful ones.
It looks pretty cool.
It’s a Marshall.
To make this amp useable, I basically had to do the following:
Overall I like the amp and doing just these 2 thing make it much more of a pleasure to use. The volume level are more what they should be for a product of this type and I don’t ever hear any of the awful patches (there are plenty of good ones).
Maybe other people can share their first experiences or tips with the Code 25?
When changing from one guitar to another live do I have to shut off the amp?
Also does it matter which power setting I use when silently recording by DI?
I have a MG15HCFX mini stack that no switch seems to work with. I have purchased just about every iteration of marshall footseewitch and I cannot find on that will switch any of the options. Not between clean/crunch or OD1/OD2. Can anyone help with what is going on?Thanks
Does anyone have a preset for Godsmack or know of one that already exists that will get me close?
Trying to connect the gateway to my new code 50...I can get the bluetoth to connect but when I try to connect to the gateway it says connection rejected?
