Summary

Guitarists looking for a one-stop-shop for effects and models will be delighted with the Marshall Code 50 1x12' Digital Combo Amp. This amp is fitted with a huge amount of technology along with the iconic Marshall tone and construction.

It comes with 14 preamp models covering a wide variety of eras and genres. You can pick almost any sound style you're looking for and find it inside the preamps already programmed into the Code 50. You get four power amp models on top of the 14 preamps that allow you to find the back end you're looking for. If that's not enough, you can also choose the type of cabinet sound you're looking for

The effects include everything you could find useful unless you're the U2 guitarist. You will find a completely customized sound with reverb, flanger, tremolo, chorus, and much more, all manipulable using the knobs on the top, and blend perfectly into the music you're jamming with.

This amplifier comes with a footswitch input that you can use to maneuver between the different effects. You can even play along with your favorite bands with the MP3 jack and blend right into the mix, as if you were there on the day they recorded it.
