I haven't tried the mini jubilee so I'm not gonna crap on it. It may be a great little amp. 10-20 years from now we'll know. I'm a fan of the classic marshalls, the tone we all know and grew up on. But in my opinion Marshall hasn't made a great amp since the 800. I was hopeful for the 2061HW, had one and liked it. I sold it to a friend and he has had to have it serviced too many times to count. Bad transformers and when he got a suitable replacement the thing just kept eating tubes. It's a great idea, but something went wrong with the design. My take on modern Marshall's is they just don't make great amps anymore and they really don't have to. People are going to buy them because they are marshalls. Marshall knows this and the parts, construction are all based on minimizing cost and maximizing profit. If that is all going well, why should they decrease profit by increasing cost if these things are flying off the shelf. People want their amps to say Marshall on it and believe they are getting the real deal piece of history. What they are getting is a compromised corner cutting, inferior product. I know there are players out there who have newer marshalls, and are happy. That's great. My old guitarist has a DSL from the 90's, he loves it, gigs it still and that's great. Sometimes I wish I was more like that. But the fact of the matter is it sounds OK, sometimes not so ok. He's never played any of the alternatives and has no desire to. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't hear the difference. I do. Marshall knows that they are a brand, a brand that sells based on its name and logo. They will not change until they have no choice, and if they did come out with a high quality amp with parts built to last that had all the functions that worked, and were easy to service they would charge more than most of the boutiques. I remember when they came out with the 1959HW. It was not cheap. Even back in the day marshalls were hit or miss. No 2 sounded the same, and you had to hunt for a good one. But when you found it. It was REAL good. There are builders making those amps. The good ones. They are built with consistency, passion and love for the originals and functions that musicians need. Marshall just isn't doing this. I wish they would.
