    Lamp
    Power is less than 100 wa amplify the zenith is more than enough
    The connectors are jack
    Slash settings / rock, can midrange. Footswitch two positions
    Presence of an effects loop. I have about 8 pedals in the loop

    I did recently change lamps for 350 €.

    Nothing more simple

    SOUNDS

    Yes rock year 70/80, I play gibson custom.

    Sound distortion at a good grain, clear sound is as clear as its name suggests.

    I acquired pre-97, but I had to change the lights, see the prices today.

    It's a head without compromise and that's all bad!

    OVERALL OPINION

    For me it is the Holy Grail, you will find OCCAZ and do not pay too much either because it is not that easy to find. In addition if one day you sell it, do it in riquains, the low rates senvolent fast enough for this little jewelry.

    This is an all-tube amp two channels: a marshall in the state of the art!!

    Ah is a hyper little thing important: this amp is handmade!! It's very upscale! The quality of manufacturing, component and assembly is truly impressive

    Front: 3 buttons on the left, the power, the stand-by and a button that lets you toggle between 100Watt and 50Watt (attention be fo-stage by forthe do!) Basically it's been working 4 lamps or 2 lamps power! So it changes a lot the grain of the amp ...

    In terms of the settings is very simple: gain, bass, mid, aspen presence, output gain, master.
    2 knobs are push-pull: one to change channels and to change the grain and have a clear channel to the JCM800

    At the back is classic: 2 HP, an effects loop, footswitch jack and voila!

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use but be careful so the settings are hyper efficient and therefore this type of amp EQ and super important and changes the sound completely.

    Overall everything works perfectly and I love: there's no 50 buttons! is simple and effective. And above all fo understand that the sound palette is very wide! This is not the number of buttons that set the width of the sound palette!

    the negative point that I would like to change: is there a single EQ for 2 channels! but hey it's like that with Marshall for years (except the last amps) so fo do with it.
    And anyway with this amp you put yourself on boosted channel and if you want a clean sound you lower the volume of your guitar and you're done!
    I put 9 because I can not regard it as a default: this amp is a reissue so they would not necessarily change everything ...

    SOUNDS

    eh eh eh

    how to express what I think: this is the sound of my dreams! it's as simple as that.
    It's not the sound of a JCM900 or JCM2000 (and fortunately saw the shit ...) or a JCM800! it is a jubilee and the sound is unique, it's also the sound of Slash!

    I'm in love with everything about this amp. the clean sound, the crunch and saturated. You can do anything with.
    This is the perfect base!
    you want a bigger sound: you add a tube screamer, a compressor and / or equalizer

    Already the basic sound is huge and the most enjoyable thing is not to push the gain on the bottom but kind to 6 / 7 and you decrease the volume of the guitar. here you have a crunch / clear beautiful as the attack on the pick: I love it!

    In general it is the sound marshall par excellence: very rich and malleable can be anything you want. When the amp is set to the sound palette is in the fingers !!!!!

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been a little over a year since I have it. I was lucky to find one of OCCAZ and really it's great!
    I tried a ton of head marshall before: JCM800, JCM 2000 and my choice was stopped on the JCM2000 DSL50 which to my taste was the one that sounded best!
    But I came across an ad for a JCM Slash and frankly I do not regret one second my choice!

    It is not easy to find OCCAZ and the price is around € 700 is very good! Of course if you get the jump on the original jubilee is extremely rare and it is the most sought after amp marshall!

    if you want further advice here is the link to harmony central (in English) where a lot of people gave its opinion on it, and everyone agrees: this is certainly one of the best marshall! !

    No need to tell you that I do it again this choice with eyes closed!

    Not much to say more than the previous owner, except that it came forth in 1987 the Silver Jubille original, and this new edition date of 96-97.
    I bought a year ago and a half in a small shop that had nine years (a client tried from time to time and that's it). 4500 nine F, without the 4 * 12.
    There is a "nice" imitation snakeskin bag to protect it from dust.
    The output that was set to 4 ohms, it potentially allows to connect 4 bowls of 16ohms ... I never tried.
    Personally, I play almost always 50Watts (I have used 100 watts in a room de1000 + people).
    Simple, effective. One thing: the line-out is really rotten (useless).

    Simple, effective. One thing: the line-out is really rotten (useless).

    UTILIZATION

    With this amp, the sound was at once: two buttons you turn and go.
    This is an amp "old", not a gas plant: presence, 3 band EQ, master volume, channel volume, input gain. That's it. No reverb.

    SOUNDS

    I had a JCM2000 DSL, I use jcm 600, 800, and 900 quite often: the Slash / Jubilee is my favorite (the 800 is very good too).
    I play it with a Gibson LP Studio '95 and a '97 Gibson SG-I.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is the kind of amp that you do not resell. I have it forever (unless I was starving).
    One problem with: the sudden drop and come back any way - some welds were sold (recurrent problem in Marshall). A short tour in the technician everything back in order.
    I love it so much that if I found a combo, or the format of short chassis Silver I buy it.

    SOUNDS

    This is not the amp that best suits my style (more aggressive) and yet I am attached.
    I do not use a preamp to get the big sound but against the rest, it depends.
    I play on the ESP mainly active or passive, and this helps to get out of her.
    The type of sound is so indescribable it is obvious that Marshall sound.
    I like the clean sound (not too clear I do not just play a sound to the Fender Twin thing) on the other hand there is no real distortion (nothing prevents the searching otherwise)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I ais for over a year since I ais (used) and do not regret the purchase even if it is not original (I insist) that sticks to play the most metal (any style).
    What I like is that I can combine it with the gear to get everything I board needs.
    (And then the little logo Slash, lol)
    I can not give prices over quality since I board is a matter of finding the opportunity (almost new).
    But I advise anyone to try to see it to see a lot of things.

    All Tube Amp everything easier to use (apparently, however). J'apprcie the fact to choose between 50 or 100 watts depending on need.
    The connection is the most standards.
    The rglages are simple. Being able to change the type of sounds with the pedals changing channels is a plus over the head Marshall JCM800 2203 SERIES ago that I used qqes Annes.
    No reverb on this head, or other effects (indsirables ???).

    UTILIZATION

    It's a Marshall, so no making head in the config. As for sound, it's rock, rock trs same according to rglages effectus legalization. The basic sounds are warm with a grain trs Marshall typically the best tank. It is true that this amp has RALIS t "by hand" as a kind of custom (requires endorsement from Slash). We like it or not, but I can assure you that with the Vintage 30 4x12 cabinet, the sound is authentic and powerful. We know you your l!!!
    I think this head is really a great platform for additional effects pedals (distortion, etc. ..).
    No need for manual is so simple.

    SOUNDS

    Playing in the styles and Hard Blues-rock, this amp is fulfilling its contract, it's tough no-nonsense, I wish a more effective legalization, but this is not the strong point of this trademark.
    Start with a clean sound with a time limit for supper and reverb, the sound is warm and clean trs (yes!) With plenty of punch (ah, the lamps Grooves EL34 tubes), although careful rgler levels of input and output. This head sounds good at "crunch" and I think this is the kind of sound it is the best with variations friendly enough. As for the heavy cavalry, I have a 1st gnration Guv'nor distortion but I AIM lamp over in the section prampli (x3). Besides, if qqu'un can advise me on one of distortion pedals top, I'm interested.
    My guitars are: Ibanez Artist 500, 1982, I quip by Seymour Duncan and Lag of the beast 1992 customs handle with rosewood fingerboard and three microphones Rio Grande (1HB simple splittable + 2) and a Takamine Electroacoustic EAN10C I happen to plug it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought this head with his cabinet in 1997 for an individual 6500 FRCS only c'tait a matter not to be missed because all still under warranty silent six months.
    As I said above, this is a good amp trs for rock and blues-rock. For mtal will require him or add a PDAL prampli (attention to gain!).
    For the record, I have a branch qqes time prampli Mesa / Boogie Formula in the amp section of the head. This gives much more possibilities of sound through the three channels of Mesa, but I came back to the basic sounds that satisfy me plenty.
    For those who are INTERESTED, I sell the prampli Mesa / Boogie (trs trs little used, nickel hardware).
    I havent tried many other heads amp (ENGL's are terrible!) But I think I cracked the config again to Slash SERIES, especially considering the price I purchased o .

    namely the master output and input gain are equipped with a push-pull allows the beast to roar like a Super Lead Plexi (cheaply and her big).

    UTILIZATION

    The config may seem simple at first but with bone up well and by making the proper adjustment is obtained the sounds of exceptional quality (rare except on models marshall 70's).

    Marshall is one of the most couillus I had (slp, JMP, JCM800).

    the manual is in English and more at the time we Slash gratifying to house 2 settings (1 clean-crunch and lead) nice to give prompt notice of the capacity of the beast and it's a very good starting point to work on the sounds that are looking for.

    SOUNDS

    Playing in different styles is a very versatile amp but keeps its Personalities

    for the blues-rock is perfect with the push-pull learned and good setting is the sound of Angus and Malcolm powerful precise and incisive (council put the master volume and the bottom has four input gain and you get an idea of ​​what I want to tell you ...)

    for rock in general sounds ranging from Van Halen to Led Zep obviously going by Guns.

    I love metal for good certainly it is not a "mesa chepaqui" (for the big sound and heavy task I have a stack krank-Krankenstein dimebag Darell nothing to do with that sound correct for mimi I have nothing against mesa I remain objective and try you will hear the differences ...) that said I go back to the marshall's typed up Deftones are metal and it's already cool.

    the funk John Frusciante of Red Hot uses a jubilee which was the model 2555 to slash the red hot so listen for a preview (and yes at Marshall can also have a pretty clear).

    if not all the EQUAL really works (rare for this brand).

    details important lamps I installed Groove Tube:
    GT EL34 power big potato
    high gain preamp kit 25% gain

    it is also impor to pair it with good mine is pregnant hybrid
    1960a chassis with 2 vintage 30 and 2 g12 75t power is about 210 watts and it is huge, in the enclosure krank is a killer and with the two is organic Cataclisma, atomic ...

    for guitars is the same (les paul, tele, gretsch duo jet type and strat frankenstein)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 6 years and nothing to say he never disappointed EXCEPT DI and effects loop.

    I wanted to sell to buy something else but eventually I guarded because there is little amp that rivals it can be the carvin Steve Vai and the Bogner Shiva.

    I had tried many and amp before buying it at the time and now I keep on living my next purchase will probably be his brother Jumale for stereo.

    I buy two of a bygone era.

    PS: I have nothing against mesa apart from their politque.

    Slash's signature Marshall

    Marshall 2555SL JCM Slash SignaturePublished on 05/13/11 at 17:25
    This amplifier is the amp that Marshall designed in conjunction with the famous Guns n Roses guitarist Slash. It was modeled after his other Marshall amplifiers he used, and I find it bears a lot of similarities to the JCM800. It is a single channel amplifier with four EL34 tubes and three 12AX7 tubes. Everything is fairly straight forward on it just like the old school JCM800s, but this amplifier has a footswitchable volume pot, an effects loop, a DI out and a low/high output switch.

Everything is fairly straight forward on it just like the old school JCM800s, but this amplifier has a footswitchable volume pot, an effects loop, a DI out and a low/high output switch.

    UTILIZATION

    The amp is extremely easy to dial in, and you can get tons of great tones immediately. The additional features that this amp has over the JCM800 makes it a bit more desirable, and there are some interesting things going in underneath. During the JCM900 years, Marshall started using diodes for clipping. These diodes were given a bad rap because the JCM900s didn't sound too great. However, people went gaga over this amp for its extra gain and awesome tone. In reality, this amp has diodes being used in the clipping section just like the JCM900 did. Amazing what a famous guitarist's name will do for an amplifier. Now, I'm not saying it's the same as the JCM900 because it's not. However, it does have some similarities at times.

    SOUNDS

    The amp sounds great, and I find it sounds even better once you throw a boost in front of it. Once you do, it gets this awesome pissed off Marshall sound that absolutely roars. The footswitchable master volumes make it great for when you need to boost the volume for those lead boosts, but since it has an effects loop, you could always just throw an EQ or something in the loop to increase the volume. Therefore, the feature isn't quite necessary, in my opinion. I actually always used this on the high output setting, so I can't really commend on the lower output setting.

    OVERALL OPINION

    These amps can get pretty pricey thanks to their rarity and Slash's signature name. They sound great, and while they're kinda worth it, I find that there are better Marshalls out there today, especially thanks to the JVM and VM that recently came out. If you're a Slash fan, you'll probably want to look into the new AFD amplifier anyway.
