The legendary high-gain amp choice of Slash, Rush, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Developed by Softube — and available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo audio interfaces — the Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555 plug-in is a thorough emulation of this ultra-rare amp, down to its four EL34 power tubes and hallowed high-gain preamp. It also offers powerful multi-mic sounds for a range of professional studio tones.

Introduced in 1987, the Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555 100-watt amplifier commemorated Jim Marshall’s 25th year in the amp-making business. With its striking silver Tolex and tastefully tweaked EQ, the SIlver Jubilee became a go-to for Slash, John Frusciante of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alex Lifeson of Rush, and Joe Bonamassa.

Now You Can:

Use your Apollo with Unison™ technology to track through the only authentic Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555 emulation — with no latency

Re-amp previously recorded tracks with any UAD-2 hardware

Dial-in perfect studio amp tones with four different microphone combinations and two different mic types — Dynamic and Condenser

Fine-tune your guitar tones with 50 presets by legendary AC/DC engineer Tony Platt

Capturing the Silver Jubilee

Capturing the Silver Jubilee

To model the Silver Jubilee, Marshall loaned Softube’s engineers an original, all stock, Silver Jubilee 2555 head from its own museum. Pairing it with an era-correct 2551AV 4x12 loaded with Celestion Vintage 30 speakers, Softube thoroughly emulated the original amp’s unique three-mode preamp section, powerful EQ stack, and Triode/Pentode power tube operation.

Versatile Marshall Tones and More

Versatile Marshall Tones and More

The Marshall Silver Jubilee plug-in expertly models one of the most tonally versatile Marshalls ever made. Its Clean, Rhythm Clip, and Lead preamp modes offer a ton of textures, from dense crunch to singing sustain. And combined with the half power Pentode/Triode switch, you can dial in silkier, less aggressive tones.

Voiced by a Legend

Voiced by a Legend

Producer/engineer Tony Platt has recorded some of the most quintessential Marshall tones ever committed to tape — most notably AC/DC’s landmark albums, Highway to Hell and Back in Black. Softube enlisted Platt to capture exquisite cabinet and microphone placements using his Platinum-approved, tried-and-true mic recipes. You can choose from 50 Platt-designed presets, or craft your own tones.

Mix Between Four Expertly Placed Microphones

Mix Between Four Expertly Placed Microphones

Open up the plug-in’s Channel Strip section, and easily dial-in your sounds with two close mics and two room mics. Each mic features Level and Pan controls, allowing precision fine-tuning — during tracking or mixdown. No matter the genre, or type of guitar, you’re afforded tons of tweakable options, from pin-point single miked tones to roars of glorious room ambience.

Unison™ Technology for Authentic Silver Jubilee Tones

Unison™ Technology for Authentic Silver Jubilee Tones

The interaction of your guitar’s pickups to an amp’s front end is crucial to capturing the tone and feel of the amplifier. With UA’s Unison technology, Apollo user's guitar pickups will see the exact impedance load as if they’re plugged into a vintage Marshall Jubilee 2555 amplifier — a feature found only on Apollo audio interfaces.

Nice Sound - Missing bypass pre amp feature!

A nice sounding simulation BUT - where is the bypass pre amp feature from the ENGL amps?
This simulation is really a great one but real tube pre amps has still a greater dynamic range. Thats why the best results can be only achieved with the combination of real preamp and power amp, cabinet microphones simulation (at least in a neighbor friendly environment).
Its so sorry that SoftTube didn't provide one additional switch to turn of the preamp section ;(

Very good emulation

I Play with Jubille amp for 30 years. My favorite amp. I Have the silver 50w combo and the Slash 100w stack (same jubilee circuit). After demo this emulation, i can say it really sounds like the real amp that i´m used for 30 years. Congratulations SoftTube team...i will buy it for sure

A Rizzo nailed it, I could add that that the addition of an input gain would make it perfect!

Great all round amp sim.

Lovely clean tones. Great driven tones & the room/mic simulation works extremely well in helping to shape your sound.

Add an H910 straight after this and you have the sound of Rush... If that kind of thing is your bag.. baby.

Great amp sim. Thoroughly and wholeheartedly recommended!

Fun with Universal Audio!

If you know anything about real recording, you understand
What fun and excitement it is to record on the UA platform.

You will simply have the time of your life cutting through the
Apollo and UAD plugins.

I purchased my first Apollo in 2014 and as of Jan. 2016 I have
53 plugins. My studio goals for 2016 is to have every plugin UA
In the store.


Long live Universal Audio!

What I Like About YOU...

You really know how to dance... ok, seriously. What I REALLY love about Universal Audio is that they allow us to demo a plug in, in the comfort of our own space. To twist and tweak till our hearts content, without the pressure of a salesman hovering over us pressing us about buying the damn thing already. Honestly within a few moments of starting the demo, I KNEW I had to have it. I can go on and on about it but hearing is the truth. Here's a YouTube vid I using the Marshall SJ https://youtu.be/ZueWLFWTEd4

Marshall Silver Jubilee

I’m a rocker. Studio engineer and pro guitar player. I primarily play my les Paul through this thing and like the suhr pt-100 I can’t find a reason to mic a guitar cab. This is another amp that needs to be figured out how to use live. It’s that good if the Marshall sound is what you want. If you need a Marshall amp for your studio save your money and get this. I don’t recommend you quadruple stack this in a recording setting as it takes up took much of the eq spectrum and you’ll need a low pass...Double track is great though... or stacking it with a less aggressive amp works wonders too. I saw a review where someone was complaining about missing the preamp bypass switch. By the time you throw in guitars, bass drums, vox, those concerns are negligible and snobbish. I played this amp for an A- list engineer (Kelly Clarkson, Rush, Mike Jackson etc) and he was blown away so dont pay mind to the snobs.

AWESOME AMP SIM ( 5 stars when 3rd Party Impulse Response Cabs be available )



I have an original 87´Marshall jubilee. At first I did not like the simulation, until I tried it with third-party response impulse, I compared my original amplifier with the sim, and I can say..... UAD nailed it!! Nice work on sim, but incomplete until 3rd Party Impulse Response Cabs be available.

superb jubilee

Softube does it again. The line is blurred between real and sim. The real deal. Just try it and you’ll buy it. I got mine with two coupons making it $124 bucks. Very happy.

A great Amp!

It's a very versatile Amp - I love it. Sometimes it has some sort of dusty Sound. But it's close to the real Amp. A great Plugin!

Marshallized

wirklich cooler Marshall Sound out of the Plugin. Mit aufwendiger Amp Mikro Abnahme im Homestudio sicher nicht besser hinzukriegen. Gitarre an den Apollo Hi-Z Input, Drumloop ab und losrocken.

Marshall Silver Jubilee

At the time of this release I had a JCM 800 (1980s) which I still have today, I demoed this amp when released and I can say this plug in sounds just as good as the real thing I love it, it is styled on an hot rodded 800 Marshall, I bought this whilst UAD was offering discounts, I would of pay full price, this is a amp that needs to be in your plugins with the 59 plexi.

Garbage

Complete waste of money and one of the cheesiest sounding amp sims I've ever used. There are free alternatives that smoke this piece of junk...

Great Marshall Tone

I wanted a go-to amp sound that was easy to dial in, and fit into just about any situation. This is it!

主役になれる音。

ギターがメインの伴奏楽器の曲で、主役となる音作りができるアンプシュミレーターだと思います。各マイクのPANを広げて使うこともでき、立体的な音像を作ることもできます。同社のMarshallのアンプシュミレーターの中では比較的明るめの音だと感じました。

Great sounding emulation

Great sounding emulation with 2 cabinet mics and 2 room mics.

Splendido

Un suono fantastico, senza discussioni.
La pasta sonora di questo amplificatore, soprattutto per chi ama il rock e l'hard rock come me, è strepitosa.
Decine di grandi preset che poi possono essere modificati a piacimento, oppure si può partire da zero per creare il proprio sound personale fin dall'inizio.
Zero latenza grazie alle schede UA e alla Console Unison.
Io sono cresciuto con il suono di Slash e dei Guns'n'Roses, quindi posso dire di aver trovato il mio suono di chitarra definitivo per lo studio di registrazione.

Exceptional.

This plugin is simply stunning. I have extensive experience of using "real" Marshalls, and this plugin is as close to indistinguishable as you will ever hear. I am constantly blown away by the quality of UAD plugs and this amp sim is no exception. If there is a difference between the plug and the real amp, you won't hear it in a mix. Using this amp through the Unison slot adds to the experience, the amp just acts, and reacts as you would expect. Amazing.
