    Hey Synners! I’ve got a Marshall Code 25 watt amp and I was wondering if you could add pedals while on clean channels. I’m asking this because this is the only Marshall amp I own currently and I wanted to add some effects to that genuine Marshall tone. I don’t see an effects in and out but there is an F/C input for foot switch. If you can add pedals, does anybody have any suggestions that pair well?

    F/C is generally going to be for a simple (sometimes proprietary) channel switch.

    There are a LOT of amps, especially older ones, that don't have an effects loop. And there are a lot of players that ignore the effects loop anyway to add pedals before the amp, so:

    Guitar -----> Various Pedals -----> Amp input.

    As far as pedals to add, it depends on what you want to do. Reverb is always a solid one, for me, but others prefer delays. Compressors are nice for when the clean channel is on, and a flangeror phaser if you're a Van Halen fan.

    OMG ED! I never thought of that!
    Man, I can be such a noob sometimes! I've just always had the effects loop on amps and never thought of running the pedals before the amp, I feel so silly lol.
    Thx so much Ed you're the man!

    Hi! I have a marshall code 50. I use a footswitch to change the presets, and works fine for me. The rest you can update by your cellphone with the app gateway
