In my opinion, Jubilees sound best through the Marshall Vintages. Better than through M or H Greenbacks, G12-65s, or G12T75s. It's the match in this case.
    I've never seen a silver cab loaded with M70s; AFAIK they weren't available from Marshall after 1986. Unfortunately most of the original Jubilee cabs I've seen were loaded with G12T75s which just aren't a good match for the amp IMO.

    I've played my Jubilees through G12Ms, G12Hs, G12-65s, G12T75s, Vintage 30s, and a ton of other stuff. Of those my favorites were G12Hs and Vintage 30s, while G12Ms and G12-65s sounded decent but weren't my thing. OTOH my brother mostly plays Strats and likes a softer top end; his first choice was G12Ms closely followed by G12-65s. Honestly the only speaker out of that group that I didn't like was the T75, but I'm hard pressed to find anything I like them for.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

      Fun fact, the Siemens branded EL34's were actually made by RFT.

      You could retube that amp with NOS glass for about 300 to 320 bucks. Considering how much longer they last would be worth it.

        Sounds expensive. I'd only spend as much as the $105 for 3x 12ax7 and 2x EL34 Mullard Reissues.

        I haven't been gigging to justify that much cash for tubes

          Too much money for me.

          I'm down to 3 reasonably priced choices: Mullard reissues, TAD and EH. Maybe Tung Sols. Leaning towards Mullards. Unless the others would be closer to the RFT/Siemens?

              I agree. I have tried to like them. And I have those mythical 80s 75s.
