I posted two clips on youtube to demonstrate my Ceriatone 2555.
I tested it against a Silver Jubilee 50 watt head from 1987, and I thought the Ceriatone sounded better!!
But the overall sound was almost the same as the Ceriatone.
My Ceriatone sounded a bit thicker, and the Marshall Silver Jubilee had a bit more bite.

Here are the links to Youtube

Hey!

Wow, very nice indeed!

Thanks so much for doing it.

I saw your post on TGP, and someone commented that it's not same as a real jubilee (although you have a REAL ONE to compare to).

The difference in tone can be attributed to the plexi faceplate we use, vs the metal type on the original.  Hehe..



Thanks!

I do not own a Silver Jubilee myself, but friend of mine has one (although it is a 50 watt head, the 2550).

The original 2550 uses some real cheap ceramic capacitors in critical sections of the circuit.  As long as you use parts of the same quality as the old Marshalls, it isn't hard to beat the factory version.  And as far as reliability, the original's pots are soldered directly to the board which has no other support.  No standoffs, nothing.

One of the first rules I learned as a tech was that solder has no mechanical strength and can only be counted on to insure an electrical connection.  To ignore that rule in a "vibration generator" has to be a decision that was made by the bean counters, not the engineers.

BTW, my project was gutting a mid 80s JCM channel switcher combo and doing a 2550 turrent board version in it with decent parts.  The layout was loosely based on SDM's and Nick's.  I still have two tube sockets and the clean channel controls free so I think I am going to try an EF86 channel.

Should be interesting.
