FIVE DECADES OF FINE TUNING.
On July 7th 1962 James Marshall started a small music shop in Hanwell, London. Accompanied by his old drum teacher, the shop sold musical instruments of all kinds. This was the fateful time in history when Amplification would first evolve into something the average person would never dream of. The Marshall’s met famous guitarists like Pete Townshend of The Who, and Ritchie Blackmore. When guitarists voiced their opinions to Jim, he devised a plan to create exactly what the up and coming rock stars wanted. This project became the iconic Marshall Amps.
Marshall is celebrating 5 Decades of Fine Tuning by releasing the CODE Series of amplifiers. The fully programmable CODE combines authentic modelling of classic and contemporary Marshall tones with professional quality FX. CODE preamp, power amp, and speaker cabinet models have been developed in collaboration with audio software pioneers Softube to create Marshall-Softube (MST) modelling, highly accurate recreations of classic and contemporary Marshall products and more.
CODE has 14 MST preamps, 4 MST power amps and 8 MST speaker cabinets. It has 24 FX including: Compressor, classic stompbox Distortions, Auto Wah, Pitch Shifter, Chorus, Phaser, Flanger and Tremolo. It includes Delays with Tap Tempo, and studio quality Reverbs. CODE’s MST preamps produce some of the most acclaimed and best loved Marshall tones: JTM45 2245, 1962 Bluesbreaker, 1959SLP Plexi, JCM800 2203, JCM2555 Silver Jubilee, JCM2000 DSL100, JVM410H and more.
