Marshall_2555X_Stack_2015

Remember this momentous occasion!  The reissue of the Marshall 2555 Silver Jubilee in January 2015 at the Winter NAMM show.

The reissue head will be called the 2555X, and the cabs (containing 4 x V30 speakers) are the 2551AV (angled) and 2551BV (straight).   Never let it be said that Marshall didn’t release a significant Jubilee model around their 50th anniversary (ok, so it’s their 53rd this year in 2015 🙂 )

Marshall Launches a Modern Re-Issue of the Legendary Silver Jubilee 2555 Stack

1987 was a very special year for both Marshall Amplification and its founder, Jim Marshall, as it marked 50 years in the Music Industry for Jim, and the 25th Anniversary of his iconic British guitar amplification brand. To celebrate these two momentous occasions, Marshall released the Silver Jubilee Series of amps, clad in silver vinyl. Of this critically acclaimed series, the 100 Watt 2555 stack quickly became one of Marshall’s most popular and significant products. It was adopted by countless artists, including the one-and-only Slash.

Due to incredible public demand, Marshall is offering a UK made, modern re-issue of the highly sought after 2555 stack that exactly duplicates its features and legendary tone. The models are the 2555X head plus the angled-front 2551AV and straight-front 2551BV 4×12” cabinets (sold separately).
