Comments about Marshall 2551BV Silver Jubilee 240W 4x12 Straight Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

I love Marshall... I have a few original 1987 Jubilee Heads and Cabs. I couldn't wait to buy all new Jubilee Heads and Cabs. Every one I received was dented and torn. One was even smashed to the point the grill popped out. This is Not Musicians friends fault nor UPS. Only Marshall is to Blame... trying to save a few cost them their reputation on this fail. The Heads are packaged well... but the cabs... not so much. Don't plan on getting one delivered in perfect condition... not gonna happen. Buy them cheap or pass imho.

    Comments about Marshall 2551BV Silver Jubilee 240W 4x12 Straight Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

    I bought the A and B cabs for my 2555X.

    First, there is some conflicting information. The cab comes with Marshall G12 Vintage speakers. These are rated at 70W, manufactured in the UK, and specified by Marshall. This cab does not come with Vintage 30s. I've seen that in print and mentioned by sales and marketing. The G12 Vintage mmmaaayyy(?) have been based on an older V30, but it does not sound like a modern Vintage 30. For me, that is a good thing. The G12 does not have the V30 "honk". Instead, it's a tight, present speaker with nice lows and high power handling. I only planned on buying one cab, but I was pleasantly surprised by the speaker and I decided to keep one stock and buy another for swapping. There are a few video comparisons on YouTube. The speakers sound quite different from V30s - have a listen for yourself.

    I read these SJ cabs are slightly oversized.

    If I were selling the cabs I would have beefed up the handles and wiring/connections.

    Marshall's big fault with these cabs is the minimal packaging they use. Several of my forum buddies bought these cabs and many were damaged in shipping because the packaging is slightly more than a cab in a box.

    The B cab I bought was a Scratch & Dent. I suspect that occurred in shipping then was returned and got even more banged up by UPS. There was a good amount of damage and several rips in the tolex with minor gouges in the box corresponding to the tolex rips. I bought the cab and saved the online pics of the damage MF provided.

    The A/Slant cab I bought arrived in good condition -- with only a minor dent in transit.

    Finally, I think the initial asking price of $1300 each is high. I bought both of mine after the 2555X had been blown out and the cabs had been discounted to move.

    Considering what I paid, I'll give this cab 3 stars because of the damages from poor packaging (not cool, Marshall) and the A cab which arrived with only one dent 4 stars.
