The JCM25/50 Silver Jubilee Series was produced in 1987 to celebrate 25 years of Marshall Amplification and 50 years of Jim Marshall being in the music business.Inspired by this acclaimed series the 20 Watt Mini Jubilee combo and ‘small box’ head combine classic Silver Jubilee preamp tone, features and styling in a lower power, ‘mini’ design.This contemporary ‘mini’ take on the Jubilee Series features: an ECC83 & EL34 valve-set, High/Low output switching, (20 Watt to 5 Watt), FX Loop and independent 4/8/16 Ohm speaker outputs. The 2525C combo is loaded with a single 12″ Celestion G12M Greenback speaker.
THE HISTORY OF THE 2555X
The Bass, Middle, Treble & Presence controls, although shared between channels, were re-designed and offered more tonal variation than any other Marshall product had before.
The 100 Watt 2555 Jubilee head caused a sensation when it was launched in January 1987 and, because it was produced only during the anniversary year, it has since become a collector’s piece. But perhaps the real reason the 2555 acquired legendary status is because of the playing public, who took it to their hearts.
The 2555 was one of our most successful products out-right, and since it was discontinued in 1988 one of the most common questions we have been asked is, “when are you going to re-issue the 2555 Silver Jubilee? So, by popular demand, we have created the 2555X, which is a modern re-issue of the 2555, with the same sonic characteristics and functionality.
The 2555X head, together with the 2551AV & 255BV 4 x 12 speaker cabinets makes the classic looking and incredible sounding Silver Jubilee re-issue stack.
