    Trying to stay busy throughout all of this! The Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555X has been on my list of amps to check out for a while and it does not disappoint. I'd go as far as to say it's my favorite Marshall. It retains the punch and balls of an 800 (though just a tiny bit less) with added gain that sounds much more lush than a JCM900 or JVM to my ears. The master volume has a really slow taper making it easier to get good tones at quieter volumes as well. I almost thought it was way too quiet at first, but when you get the master cranked it gets as loud as you would expect. Tried to pick out some riffs that would showcase the 2555x. Check it out! ⚡️

    Very nice OP, what pups are in the LP? Are you using any effects in the loop?
    Thx

    Hell yeah man! Sounds killer. As always, great choices in riffs (especially Opeth and Alice in Chains). What song was the third riff from?

    Thanks! These are the stock 490R/498T pickups that came stock in this LP. Occasionally kicking on a Boss DD-500 in the loop for some delay.

    Thanks a bunch! Always killer when people recognize the Opeth tunes :) One of my favorite bands for sure. The 3rd riff is "The Kids Aren't Alright" by The Offspring.

    Ah, that's "From the Cradle to the Grave" by Havok, and it's a ripper.

    Killer!

    I'm very interested in trying the 20 watt studio version of this amp. You make it sound fantastic for hard rock riffing, using V30's? I've also heard it give some great classic rock tones with Greenbacks, would be a great amp to have in a studio arsenal.

    Strangely enough it still makes a difference... (I keep the Rhythm Clip off on mine - 2525H - and it makes the lead channel a touch “beefier”!).

    thats the
    one thing on this amp i dont like.
    I like the sound if the Rhythm channel in the dirty position but it pulls the bottom out of both dirty and rhythm channels.
    but besides that its a great amp.
    I have the 2525H with the greenback cab done in the old plexi style. whatever its called

    Sweet; I’m not overly keen on the grey tolex myself (sacrilege!) so I went with a custom livery too:

    I thought that sounded familiar! I generally really like their guitar tone; very tight and cutting. I love the verse riff in Time is Up. However, I've seen people talk trash on them on music forums, I wonder why. If you like Havok, you'll probably love Power Trip (I'm a huge fan), Enforced, and High Command.
