Designed in collaboration with software experts Softube, Marshall's CODE series of digital programmable amplifiers are made for guitarists who seek ultimate versatility, with the ability to change parameters from their smartphone or computer!
With over 100 ready-to-rock presets, these powerful and gig-worthy amps are filled with 14 modelled preamps, 4 power amps and 8 speaker cabinets; not to mention 24 built-in effects too. CODE series amps provide you with every iconic Marshall tone and much, much more.
The Marshall CODE50 sits in the middle of the lineup, making it the best-selling model from the range. With 50-watts of headroom, the CODE50 also boasts a portable, medium-sized cabinet that hosts a punchy custom-designed 12" Marshall speaker. With plenty of power, the CODE50 is more than capable of handling almost any musical situation.
Multiple Modelled Marshalls!
Marshall and Softube worked meticulously on modelling various amps to ensure that they sound as authentic as possible. The 14 MST preamp modules cover everything from classic Bluesbreakers to the hard-rocking JCM800, and even the modern JVM and DSL valve amps.
Cabinet simulations were also covered, with almost every kind of Marshall cab sound carefully captured. From the small 1x12" 1912 to the mammoth 4x12" 1960A, you can easily experiment with different cabinet models to make the sound in your head a reality.
Power amplifiers were modelled too, with the four main types of power valve available. An EL34-filled Marshall 100w, 5881-filled vintage Marshall 30w, a more American-sounding A/B 5881 Power amp and a small British Class A EL84-designed option can be selected. These can all be mixed and matched to form your dream Marshall tone!
24 Built-In Effects
Moving on from the amp and cab sounds, you also have a vast collection of effects that cover all of the bases. Compressor, distortion, auto-wah, pitch shifter, chorus, flanger, phaser and tremolo on top of the studio-quality reverbs and tap tempo delays.
All of these effects can be accessed either on the amp, using the Marshall Gateway app or via the programmable controller (sold separately). But what's even cooler is the ability to use 5 different effects simultaneously, meaning that you can combine modulation, distortion and time-based effects!
Gateway App & Connectivity
Marshall's CODE series of amplifiers have so much functionality, that they couldn't physically fit every single feature on their control panels! That's why Marshall designed the Gateway app, to give you more control and flexibility over their sound so you can really dig deep and precisely craft the best sounds.
Via the Gateway app, you can make on-the-fly tone tweaks, create presets, manage amp patches and even stream music straight to the unit using Bluetooth. And with the MyMarshall site, you can even upload and download to the global library of user presets. The CODE50 has it all!
