marshall silver jubilee 2550 (made in 87) vs marshall jcm 800 2203 (made in 81)

i know the jubilee is less wattage with a wattage switch and has 2 channels while the jcm is 100 watts and single channeled

but in terms of tone what are the differences and which would you get and why


EDIT:::::::::::::::::::::::::::Kinda starting the thread over again

how does the marshall silver jubilee 2550 compare to an orange rockerverb 100?

97 Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

Yeh the SICK! bit sounds a bit stupid.

Well John Frusciante and Slash both use Silver Jubilee's. I think they are generally accepted to be ''better''

Disagree, I think....

The Jube is meant to be similar to a 'better' JCM900 is my memory serves me correctly? Meaning nice bright cleans and fairly modern OD.

The JCM800 is very different, the jube uses clipping diodes I believe wheras the 800 is purely tube stages.

all i know is one time i heard some really great almost fendery cleans out of a jubilee and it changed my opinion of marshall cleans. it was nice.

my main concern is i love john frusciantes live tone

he used to use a jcm 800 for mothers milk and bssm but now he uses jubilees

can the jubilee cover the jcms tones and more?

i thought froosh just used the jubes for the white falcon?
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

Well they are different. It'd probably be easier to get Jube tone from an 800 than the other way round, but the Jube does have nicer cleans so i'm unsure.

reasons your wrong:

he doesnt use the falcon anymore and he still uses jubes
why would he need 2 jubes for californication and otherside?


dont mean to be a dick lol sorry

i think he used to use his fender showman head for the white falcon and the ds 1 for distortion, he prob uses his marshall major now for headrooom

Right, reasons you're wrong...

1) Theres an 'e' at the end of 'you're'.

2) Im well aware of that.

3) He still has the jubes, noone can say if theyre being used or not.

4) He has a DS-2 if thats what you mean, but recently he's been favouring an EHX english muff'n.

5) I was stating my opinion, if you think i'm wrong, ignore the post.

He uses the Jubes? I thought he had a JCM 2000 and an older Plexi up on stage?

personally i'd go with a dsl100 but if it was between those 3, get the orange if you can afford it. jubilee sux and is only good for collectability.

He HAS to be joking, look at his name and his add date.


I've heard the Jubilee was closer to the JCM 900.

People such as this n00b are the reason that Harmony Central users think that we're all retarded.

Does anyone actually know whether a JCM 800 has more gain than a Silver Jub or vice versa?

A jube can probably get more gain. The schematic would show me so.

Wrong.

Come back here when you know what you're talking about and aren't so much of a blinded tit yourself.

As for now, GG&A could probably do without more noobs such as yourself.
