Hello all. I'm willing to bet the title of thread has caught the attention of some folks!!! LOL!!! But nope. Sorry. It's not what you think it is!!! And before I begin (and so that nobody tries to spoil my day): I visit these (and other Marshall related) forums often enough and my beloved CODE amps. (I have FIVE of them) seem to get a bad rap. No idea why. Maybe I'm just lucky i.e. I've never had a single issue with any of my amps. whatsoever. And I don't know if it's a combo. of my guitars (pickups) and wireless systems and PA or because of the way I use these amps. but I get truly MONSTER sound out of them. And I have indeed owned Marshall valve heads and stacks on occasion over the years so I do know the difference. And if I can be of any assistance to CODE owners: am too happy to be (actually provide some unofficial support for them on Marshall's own forums) (but the reason I'm posting this here is because I posted it over there yesterday and no input from anyone i.e. those forums are usually very quiet save for the continuous repetitive posts by owners who couldn't be bothered to help themselves of course). Right. Now that we have all of the above out of the way!!! LOL!!! As you all know: there's no effects loop on the CODE25 and CODE50. I've not found this to be an issue but I would like to try and hook up an equalizer (Boss GE-7) to try out. I've have tried putting the pedal in the front but with high gain amps. like the JCM800 the noise levels lift WAY too much especially if you're using PRE FX like distortion (and REVERB and DELAY make the situation worse). In addition to this there are certain pedals that just should be in an effects loop and not in front e.g. TC Electronic's MIMIQ (in front this pedal also raises the noise badly and quite frankly I think it's a joke but this is a whole other discussion which I'm happy to have) (but this being said: will give it the benefit of the doubt until I can try it in an effects loop assuming I can accomplish the below). So here's my plan (which requires two amps.): 1 - Guitar straight into amp. 1 (say a CODE25). 2 - On amp. 1: ONLY PRE FX and PRE AMP are turned ON i.e. everything else is turned OFF. 3 - From amp. 1: take the LINE OUT (HEADPHONE) to a REAMP box (this to reduce the output level from amp. 1 from a line level signal back to an instrument level signal) (and this so as not to blow up your pedals or second amp.). 4 - From the REAMP box: to pedal (or pedals i.e. however many you want in your "loop"). 5 - From pedals: into amp. 2 (another CODE25 for example) and on amp. 2 PRE FX and PRE AMP are turned OFF and everything else is turned ON. Can anybody think of any reason why this would NOT work??? It IS INDEED an effects loop i.e. your effects are now sitting between the ouput stage of a PRE AMP (amp.1) and the input stage of a POWER AMP (amp. 2) which is indeed a normal effects loop as we all know it (this just being a very long winded way of accomplishing the same thing). Yeh. I know. I could just try it but I'd rather get some outside input before I go blasting my amps. because there's something I've not thought of here. Oh and don't worry: I won't hold anybody responsible if things go wrong!!! Regards, Dale (aka "Mr CODE"!!! LOL!!!). P.S. If Marshall would be so kind and forthcoming so as to give us a clue as to where the effects loops connections are on the CODE100/100H??? I've a feeling that a "proper" effects loop could very easily be "installed" on a CODE25/CODE50 IF you know where to splice into the internal connections!!! I say this because bear in mind that ALL of the CODE range use the same firmware and the front panels on the CODE50 and CODE100/100H are pretty much identical. And I also believe there is already a clue in the sense that on the CODE100/100H: the LINE OUT (HEADPHONE) socket disables the effects loop. Hmmmnnn... Unfortunately I don't have access to a CODE100/100H (at least not the type of access that will allow me near one with a screwdriver in hand!!! LOL!!!).
