2015 – NEW YEAR, NEW PRODUCTS

Introducing the 2555X Silver Jubilee re-issue stack, and celebrating 50 years of a rock icon, the limited edition 50th Anniversary stack.
CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF AN ICON
Over the past half century the Marshall stack has been instrumental in defining the sound of rock music. Since 1965 the image of the Marshall stack is one of the most enduring in the history of rock music.
2015 is the 50th anniversary of the birth of the iconic Marshall stack. To celebrate we have created two very special, British made, limited edition speaker cabinets – the 812A-50 angled cabinet and the 812B-50 straight cabinet, which will strictly only be available during this anniversary year.
The 50th Anniversary stack features original cosmetics: authentically reproduced fret cloth, era correct Celestion G12M speakers with solder tags, and leather strap handles. Both cabs will bear a special plaque identifying them as limited edition 50th Anniversary

JCM 25/50 2555 Silver Jubilee Re-Issue Stack
The Silver Jubilee Series was created in 1987 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the founding of Marshall Amplification and the 50th year of Jim Marshall being in the music business. The limited edition, all-valve Silver Jubilee amplifiers looked stunning in silver vinyl covering with chrome-plated control panel.
Based on JCM800 2203 and 2204 Master Volume models, the 2555 Silver Jubilee 100 Watt head caused a sensation when it was launched in January 1987 and has since become a collector’s piece. It had a distinct sonic character, with innovative features like front panel Pentode/Triode switching, atypical preamp circuit, and redesigned tone controls. But the real reason the 2555 Jubilee acquired legendary status is because of the playing public, who took it to their hearts.
The 2555 was one of most successful Marshall products out-right, and since it was discontinued in 1988 one of the most common questions we have been asked is, “when are you going to re-issue the 2555 Silver Jubilee head?” So, by popular demand, we have created the 2555X, which is a modern re-issue of the 2555, with the same sonic characteristics and functionality.
To accompany the 2555X are two silver vinyl covered 4 x 12″ speaker cabinets. The 2551AV angled front and the 2551BV straight front cabs are loaded with Celestion ‘Vintage 30’ speakers. Partnered with the 2555X they make the impressive looking, and incredible sounding Silver Jubilee re-issue stack. (Cabs are sold separately).
