Marshall Silver Jubilee Amps
Another popular tone monster by Marshall made famous by Slash of Guns 'N Rose and now Velvet Revolver fame.
To celebrate 25 years of Marshall amps and for Jim Marshall being in rock 'n roll for 50 years, the Silver Jubilee amps
were introduced in 1987. This explains the type 2550 (25/50) and name Silver Jubilee (25th Anniversary). The 1987 amps and
cabinets were covered with silver vinyl and had chrome silver panels instead of the usual gold brushed aluminium panels. In
the following years they were manufactured in the normal black vinyl, but the chrome panels stayed.
These amps could be switched to "half" power by switching the output pentodes to triode mode. The type 25/50 is also a
reference to this feature.
The Jubilee Series amps also featured quiet switching between lead and rhythm channels. When the 1987 sales year ended, the
special models were added into the existing JCM 800 line-up as the Custom Series (although they were sold in the traditional
black vinyl after the Jubilee year was over). The model numbers for these amps were prefixed by a "JS" (Jubilee Series)
In 1996 a limited edition (of 3000 amps) Slash Signature of the 2555 amp (and cabinet) was reissued.
