Gear of the Year 2017

Another year, another dazzling parade of pedals, guitars, amps, modelers, and accessories that made our noggins spin.


Marshall 2525C Mini Jubilee

A 20-watt rendition of Marshall’s legendary Silver Jubilee, the 2525C Mini Jubilee is available as a compact 1x12 closed-back combo or head. Powered by two EL34s and decked out in signature silver-and-grey vinyl and chrome, it exudes the coolness of its big brother. Both a great grab-and-go amp and studio workhorse, the Mini Jubilee delivers authentic Marshall tones across all gain and volume ranges.
