The Marshall Silver Jubilee is one of the most popular amps they have ever made. Now not only can you get your hands on the same legendary tone but now in a much smaller 20w form. Made in the UK these amplifiers are absolutely stunning and certainly come in as one of the best sounding small format heads available today.
Originally produced in 1987 for Marshall's 25th Anniversary and 50 years of Jim Marshall being in the music business. Sadly not too many were produced due to the short run of just a single year. Taking inspiration (and actually a lot more) from the original circuitry this 20w head version of the blues and rock legend is here with its all silver tolex and faceplate.
20w Of Power
So while 20w may not sound like much...trust us it is very loud. You can easily take this a small to medium sized gig and be heard above the rest of the band with no real issue. It is still low enough wattage however that taking it home and using it for practice as well is not out of the question. Set up with a two EL34 power amp valves this is a 20w of Marshall rock beauty.
Silver Jubilee Preamp
Even with shrinking the classic 100w to the 20w size you still don't lose any functionality. It still features the same three mode preamp system, Clean/Rhythm, Rhythm Clip and Lead channels each cover their own styles from crystal clean with no gain to all out aggressive hard rock tones that can pull down walls.
Here's what Marshall say about the Mini Jubilee Head
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.
In keeping with classic Jubilee tone, Mini Jubilee features preamp circuitry taken from the 2555X, released in 2015, made using the original diagrams and checked against the original 2555
Silver Jubilee head in the Marshall Museum.
The amp also features classic silver vinyl and chrome plated panelling to complete the Jubilee look.
The 2525 Mini Jubilee is expertly crafted and is designed, engineered and constructed to the highest possible standards at the Marshall factory in Bletchley, England.
