Shipment arrived from Milton Keynes today, a brand new Marshall 2555x Silver Jubilee Reissue. I only had about 35 minutes to play it today, but that was long enough for me get really excited about the way it sounds! The Pentode/Triode switch is brilliant. I used to have a JCM900 DR that had the same functionality, but I just feel like this is so much better for some reason. I've never played a Silver Jubilee of any type before today, and I think I'm in love with this circuit. The gain is so much more refined than my JMP 2204, I love that amp for how wild it is, but this is such a great change of character. I could go on and on about the differences in the way they sound, but there's no need for that tonight. It's been a long time since I've been able to afford to keep two full size amps in the stable, I'm excited about having two different Marshall flavors on hand! Haven't tried the loop yet, I don't have much experience with loops so that will take some time to figure out I'm sure. Played it today through my mid 70's Marshall 4x12 loaded with Greenback Reissue speakers. I'm excited to get my hands on a Vintage 30 loaded cab soon to see what I'm missing, because everything I've read online about these amps says they just "work" with V30's. Here's a few pics of my up-to-date rig to enjoy! With my 1979 JMP 2204 and the 4x12 I mentioned. Another shot of the heads. Here you can see the full 4x12, my SM57, and the top row on my pedalboard. The guitars! Top left is a Gibson The Paul II, loaded with Seymour Duncans. Pearly Gates in the bridge, Seth Lover model in the neck. The goldtop is a 2005 built R7. The Stratocaster in the foreground started life as a Highway One model, but was given a cosmetic overhaul by my college roommate (fellow guitar player and talented artist) where he aged the plastic parts and darkened the finish somehow. It has Fender Texas Specials in the neck and middle spots, and a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails in the bridge. The back of the neck has been sanded, and I really enjoy that guitar. The pedalboard. I won't list what these are, if you're on TGP then you probably know already! But the VP is the Ernie Ball MVP model and I doubt you could tell by the photo! Cheers!
