The Code 50 certainly has it's place in the Marshall family. It is NOT a substitute for a good tube amp, rather, it models the tones fairly well and is a compact, inexpensive, loud combo. There are a few things to watch - the presets generally have far too much noise gate threshold set and it kills the tone. The fx are also set to extreme on many and gain is too high. That being said, start from scratch and set an amp type, say, Silver Jubilee, then set your own EQ, turn all fx off, set gate lower, pick a cabinet, then set reverb or other fx to taste and save it. Once you tweak some presets with your own favorite Marshall amps, it sounds really quite good. It is very directional, a partly open back may have helped this. All told, very good modeling of some excellent Marshall amps, fun little amp! Never used the blietooth or app, don't care, it is easy to set on amp. For me it will be a super practice and small venue amp once the footswitch arrives.
