When it comes to guitar amplification, it’s hard to beat a name as iconic as Marshall. From renowned musicians of old to the friends that we jam with everyday, Marshall has been a household name for years. Never content to rest on their laurels, they are back with a new and updated Marshall Jubilee line (a reissue of the Jubilee series released in 1987 to mark 25 years of the Marshall brand, and 50 years in the business for Jim Marshall). These sleek silver amps will turn heads for how great they look and ears for how great they sound. We were lucky to have Steve Smith come and join us all the way from the Marshall UK headquarters to give us a first hand look at everything we need to know about the Marshall Jubilee.

Steve Smith…sounds like a super hero name. Good for you, Steve! Let’s take a look!

Marshall Jubilee: The Overview

The Recap

 

The 25/25 silver jubilee comes in both Head and Combo variations. There are 2 different types of cabinets (angled and straight). These amps are all valve, handmade in the UK, and feature El34’s tubes and ECC83 preamp valves.

They are 2 channel amps (clean and lead) and also feature rhythm clip which bumps up the gain stage of the amplifier on the first channel to overdrive channel.

The combo comes with a Celestian greenback speaker, and the 2×12 comes with Celestian vintage speakers. There is a distinct quality to each amp. The channels are foot switchable. And on top of all that, there is the same preamp as the big Jubilee in 87.

 

Conclusion

The Jubilee’s are a fantastic line of amps celebrating everything that is great about Marshall amplification. They come in a lot of variations and can accommodate any guitarist’s setup. For more information about these incredible amps, click the link below.
