Not the best demo of it, I don't think they had it cranked which these amps need to be.

Like with the JCM800RI, the original might be half the price. It's cool that they are redoing it though.

Used SJ's are $2k?? Used plexis are $1600CAD :lol:

I'd be interested in a side by side demo of original vs. RI.

OH and sweetwater is showing the head at $1899 and the cabinet at $1299 street. Cab is way too much, but the head is not bad at all in that price range.

The original jubs go between $1600 and 2K, sometimes you can get them a little cheaper, but mostly the grey tolex ones are in the higher range. But yes they go more then the plexi's because the supply is lower then the plexis.

Good news.

I know Bonamassa is a huge fan of the original SJ's and has used them live and in the studio for many, many years now. I've got a stonking good profile of a modded SJ on my Kemper that is just the best dirty distortion tone I have ever heard.

My buddy Vinnie has an original 86-87 Jubilee and it's the best Marshall I have ever heard. Killer amp.

I remember sometime in the early 2000's going into a guitar center fully prepared to walk out with a mesa dual rec. This was sitting in the little private room thingy and I went in and fell in love with it. I wanted to kiss it and snuggle it. Then I turned it on. Then I wanted to screw it.

Got cold feet though, didn't walk out with any amps, just a new guitar. Wish I would have bought it...price tag was original $2,100 but it was bumped down to $1250 or something in that range.

My buddy has three originals, and they sound monstrous when he plays his vintage Goldtop (that doesn't suck) through it.

Someone on rig talk said it best, with all the mini amps going around they should have also reissued the 2553.

I just want a Silver Jubilee because if I have one, I will guaranteed play and sound like Joe Bonomassa.

Right? :(

But that would make sense. When, recently, has Marshall done anything that makes sense?

Yesterday when they reissued the Silver Jubilee? :cool:

I agree, though. Was hoping that Marshall would make a line of 5 - 20w amps much like Peavey is doing, but I guess a reissue of one of their best amps works, too. :yesway:

Sounds kickass :yesway:

I love the staredown he gives him at 3:20-ish while playing a pretty simple lick :lol:

Oh man, this guy is a terrible salesman :lol:. I've seen him 3 times at Sweetwater's GearFest, and he completely shits over the role of someone showing you all the features of a new piece of gear. He literally just said that the other amps were cool, but just played one, to a shitty backing track, of a mix of Pantera and Satch tracks :lol:

Here is some clarification to the video and also why they got rid of the ohm selector switch.

"Below is a copy of a post made by Marshall's very own Santiago Alvarez concerning the new Jubilee and Nick Bowcott's comments about the "emulated" circuit.

Hi, unfortunately that was a very bad choice of words by Nick. There is nothing being emulated in the amp and there are no "modern construction techniques". The amplifier is pcb like the originals were although of course the pcb has been updated into a double sided one, with DC heaters and we corrected an issue with flickering relays that the originals had.

The amplifier is built in the same style of other UK Marshall amp with that type of conduction(AFD, YJM, VM, YJM...) and we also upgraded internal connectors, used cloth covered wires and a few other improvements which will become standard in new Marshalls.

The mains and impedance selectors were removed as they are becoming difficult to find and difficult if not impossible to get them pass modern safety standards.

We also added external bias points with two trimmers, one per push pull side.

Nick is one of my big influences.
