New Vintage? Amp Day

What we are looking at here is a Marshall 1987 Jubilee 25/50 ; and she's finally mine. I had been looking at a bunch of different amps. 1974 JMP or a 80's JCM800 notably, but I had always wanted a Jubilee. There is a certain culture that surrounds it, I just thought I'd never find one. I found it in killer condition and at a great price. They grill on the back is kinda funky but that cant be fixed! If you don't know much about the Jubilee it was made on the 50th anniversary of Marshall. It has a Clean Channel / Rhythm and Lead. It is a glorified JCM800 2210 basically. Slash was/is the most famous user of the Jubilees and it still remains in his live rig, Marshall would go on to make a Slash Signature head modeled after the Jubilee. John Frusciante uses them for all his studio and live work. The Black Crowes first album used this amp pretty much exclusively and Joe Bonamassa says it's "the great Marshall Pre-Amp ever made". It's a top notch amp.

I haven't been able to really play with her just yet seeing as it's a 50w all tube Marshall head and it's 12 midnight. But tomorrow morning I'm gonna run some lengthy jam tests and get those tubes working. I should be shooting a killer video to go along with it as well!

I went from a Peavey Windsor to this which is a GIANT leap is quality. Not to mention I have wanted this amp more or less since I started playing guitar. It's a really big day for my gear acquisition.

I'm gonna try to Mic it, but I don't have decent microphones. However it's gonna be shot on a kick as camera. I'm in the works of trying to get my friends sm57. I hate to sound so gear snob but it sucks because I'm still using the Windsor cab ( Jubilee wasn't cheap haha ). So I'm saving cash for a Marshall Cab THEN i'll be in tonal bliss x2!

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.

A great amp, HNAD, shame to think in 10 years or so Marshall will probably label the MG's as their Vintage amps

While it is a celebration of 25 years of Marshall, It's also commemorating 50 years in music for Jim Marshall.

Anyway, HNAD! That is one great amp. Can't wait for the video!
