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!

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.

Hi everyone . I’m very new to amps, always played acoustic . I just recently bought the Marshal Code 25 . I printed off the operating manual . My question is I have a iPhone, iPad and a laptop . I want to play backing tracks through my amp so I can practice . I’m confused on how to connect to the amp . Do I need a special cable, and is the cable going to be a different one if I use my laptop ? And on the amp where is the best connection to use , I’m aware of the headphones plug guitar plug , which is best to play backing tracks through . Thanks very much .

Hi.

I am using a CODE 50 and i am happy.

My experience is very good, of course this is not a HIGH END amp neither the real ones that CODE emulated, but for the price its an amazing amp, and for what i need, playing at HOME at lower volumes with quality and flexibility. Its a very nice solution to have in a very easy and cheap way some historical Marshall amps tones, and again this is not the REAL AMPS of course, but the quality and the price are very very GOOD.

I am using tradicional pedals running in front of the amp, due the absence of effects loops i am even running delay in front. The only effect that i am using from the CODE is the reverb.

Now comes one of the best thinks for me, i am using Marshall Footswitch, and i create 6 banks of presets for my taste :-) please see the photo. With this i can have imediatly  diferent amps with the presets that i made, i event put some hang tags identifiyng the names of the presets. 

To record i use 2 SM57, and my main guitar is fender 60 anniversary commemorative stratocaster.

I have sereval other amps, all valves, but again to play in home, record, jam, and so on, this setup is one of the best that i done.

Keep rock in a free world !!

Cheers.

Miguel

So as the name suggest i have connection problems. I had some other problems with phone connection also but that was solved with a hard reset of the headphones. But it didn't solve the problems with my laptop. So the headphones do connect to the pc and work fine but after an hour of use the make a loud beep sounds and turn off for no reason. If i turn them on again they instantly connect back to the laptop and continue working like before. Is there a program or drivers installer for the windows to fix this? Becouse i dont want to change my brand new headphones and wait for the new pair?

Is there any chance to rectify the way the master volume pot on the CODE 50 behaves via a firmware update? Or is it a malfuncion on my device?

From 0 to 1 there's, well, nothing. No sound. Above that, there's about two millimeters of neighbour friendly bedroom level followed by an abrupt kick in the guts.

Thanks in advance.

I know it's been asked before but my Marshall Code 50 sounds realy muffled. Playing a Tele through it just sounds really muddy and flat. Tried tweaking the settings for Presence and Resonance but it makes little difference. When I plug headphones in though it seems super clear. Any thoughts?

There's a noticeable bit of digital noise/fizz  in the output.  Fiddling with gain, volume, presence and resonance settings seems to help a bit.  Upping the gate settings only cuts it out when you're not playing, otherwise it pops back in as soon as you start, only now with sustain  and response issues associated with setting the threshold too high.

I've seen this issue noted on other boards, and the problem seems to be rooted in the signal processor. Does Marshall have a fix in the works?

Fired up the Gateway app after upgrading my ipad to iPadOS 13.1.2 and I get a message "Context3d not available! Possible reasons: wrong renderMode or missing device support". Nothing happens after that. I have an ipad 6th generation.

Hey!

I'm currently looking at getting either the Marshall DSL1H or DSL20H amp head. I know that they both have emulated out's that can be used with headphones, but what I'd like clarified for me is how this would work exactly. I'm not going to be buying a cab for it right away, but would like to be able to still use all the knobs on the amp to sculpt te tones I want and to also control volume levels. Is this something that I can achieve without a cab connected to it? If I need a cab connected to it can I just connect it to a load box? 

Thanks.

Hey, I recently bought this amp (5 months ago) and it was working very well until a couple of days ago. Yesterday I turned on the amp and it's volume was very low on both channels. I had to put it all on maximum in the classic gain channel (Volume and Gain) to get a decent volume for practicing on my bedroom. I reseated all valves, but the problem continues. I also tested the valves hitting them with a pen, but there was no sound that could indicate a bad valve. What should I do?

I don't know quite how to use this. It's probably so simple a chimp could figure it out - that must be it. I'm so scattered that I've gone below chimpanzee on the ??? scale. Please help if anyone has or knows how to acquire this manual . Thanks in advance - seriously.   D.L.

When I try to hook my amp to my laptop, a box appears at the bottom of the screen that says code 50 not connected. I'm no computer genius and I'm sure I'm missing something simple but, how do I get it to connect?
