    Ok... now that I thought about it for a minute, maybe this amp is a little overkill! I could never play it at a suitable level, anywhere. Club owners would always ask me to turn it down plus it's a drag to carry around. My old house would probably fall apart if I turned it past 9 o'clock....

    It's really nice though... sexy...

    Do you mean the Hendrix amp? it's been out for awhile. It gets no press because it's $7k.

    Yeah, there's a demo of it on youtube. Another bohemoth reissue from Marshall! Personally, I'm waiting for Marshall to wake up and reissue the Jubilee and not as a signature this time...HELLO!!! :rolleyes:

    I'm not a Marhsall Expert, but is this just one of the existing HW's With Jimi's Name slapped on it?

    $7K? Jim Marshall himself better make it in MY Garage at that price.
    But hey that's from someone who can only afford one boutique $2500 class amp at a time.

    It's different from the other handwireds, and is only being made in limited quantities. A little pricey for my budget, considering the other choices available.

    I agree, though I have 2 Jubilee's now that are sitting at home going unused. :) I play my Matchless alot because I have a road case for it and it sounds great. But the Jubilee's are great amps and why I keep 'em around for my Marshall tones. :)

    Very true... If I had too much money I'd buy one though, and a farm where I could dime it :RoCkIn In the meantime I'll make do with my 1974X...

    Seriously, 7K is a little steep. Does that include both cabinets?

    I remember diming an old JCM 800 in like 1991 outside across a valley and thinking it was the be all end all of guitar tones. Anyway...yeah 7k for a amp is too much. You could probably get the same amp from a boteeker and save yourself 4k. :)

    Jimi used KT66's according to legend. I don't know what other differences there might be - if any.

    And if any of the 2 Watt bedroom amp crowd disagrees, I challenge them to an amp shootout in their bedroom. ;)

    Maybe we could put power scaling on it, and a variable wattage switch? That way in my bedroom I can drive it with my Klon, Eternity, Tim, Timmy, OCD, and [insert another controversial pedal here].

    +1 more.

    Maybe then I could have a spare one, too. I treat my Jub like a small child in that I am ever mindful of it in public, due to the difficulty in replacing it.


    :cool:

    There's a ton of info at www.plexipalace.com. Do a search over there. Yes, it's sold as a full stack.

    Well assuming the cabinets are made to the same standard, Figure $1k each
    and it just becomes a tad overpriced vs. Obscene.

    Good to know!

    I wonder what level of research/detail they did on these? I mean Marhsalls weren't exactly consistent back then. Did they have any special transformers made/re-created? Design to compensate for new production tubes or a Stash of NOS for this run? Did they culminate this to be a best of breed amplifier, or just a collector's showpeice to sit in the corner?

    The collector's won't care, but for the players there are a LOT of great marshall clones out there to beat out several which are thousands less than what Marshall is asking...

    Cool that Marshall is getting back to it's roots in the last couple of years with the HW series. Now if they would just make a kick-ass production amp that can HONESTLY cop all the old marshall tones ala Mesa Road King. The TSL IMO was NOT that amp, nor was the 30th anniv series. A minor thought on my end is they keep it looking "Old School". Meaning more like a plexi/JCM800 than the later years... I mean this is something a little too ambitous for the Boutique Builders, but I think marshall would have the Resources to pull it off!
