:rock:
They really are spot on to the original, I still give the nod to the vintage version when you really push the volume way up there but not a big difference at all.
Great amp!

Holy shit, that's awesome tone right there. Is Jubilee really a "lead players" amp?
I.e. Too warm, dark, bassy for good hard rock/metal rhythm playing?

It'll do anything you want, with a boost or two. Easily hard rock, metal it depends on the boost pedals used but I've been able to get EVH 5153 gain levels easily and that's a pretty well known metal amp.
It is darker than the regular 800, but thicker too with a TON of low end. And you can certainly eq them to be bright.
It is the only Marshall that goes well with V30s, in addition to GBs/65s/75s.

The 2555x is just killer! I bought one last year when the prices dropped and don't regret it one bit. That dude is really getting a dark growly JB tone. Just goes to show how versatile the amp is. I get much more high end sheen out of mine but all of the eq controls are drastically effective that you can get a lot of variation just by tweaking the mid knob a bit.

I have a few nice amps and the Jube is my go-to for great classic rock, blues, almost high gain territory.
I need to decide on a better cab now.

I remember people talking about a price drop on these, but it was a while ago and I can't remember the specifics. Can someone fill me in. How much did the 2555x amps retail for when they first became available? And how much were dealers discounting them towards the end?

New they were 1899, and I think they went down to around 1200? Now, I see them used for at least that.....2555 that is. You can still get the 25w head/combo new. But not the 100w version.

Think it sounds good. Hard to tell with all that reverb.

He also seems to be fiddling with pedals. Must be some kind of boost going on.

For sure boosted. Jubes have just a bit more gain than a JCM 800 2203/4.

I thought the Soldano HR25 would unseat my Marshall 2553. Instead, I just added the HR25 to the stable and am keeping the 2553. :) :)

Where are you in Florida? I used to own 2 of the 2555SL & was wondering if you happen to have purchased one of mine.

I just picked up the 2555X based on this video :)
Taken me a little bit to figure out the controls, first thing I noticed was that it didn't seem very loud compared to every other 100 watters I've tried where you can't go past 2. Checked online and it seems to be a normal thing, you really have to crank the lead master and output master, or dime one and use the other to get real loud.

Goosed with my MXR Custom Badass OD (pedal is in the SD-1 territory but retains all the bass), it really does metal well. More smooth tone than the 2203, or even a 2205 that I used to have. Very harmonically complex, good bass available. Definitely scratches the itch for a higher gain marshall that retains its tone (unlike the DSL or JVM which are ok, but this is much better tone-wise)

I tried the Joe Bonamassa settings but didn't sound the same with my Explorer with 500T, or my hands :)
