    I emailed Matt at Pharoah Amplifiers today about a pedal on his website making a debut: Jubilee Silver Overdrive. He confirmed that it has a lot of the characteristics of the classic late 80's Marshall Silver Jubilee amps favored by Rich Robinson and Slash. It also has an effects loop like a TIM and is true bypass. Comes in a MXR Flanger size box with a subtle silver paint scheme with black graphics. It has the tone stack from the Marshall with T-M-B plus drive and volume controls. It looks cool if it delivers a tone similar to that amp.

    Definately be something I'd be interested in! Always loved Slash's lead tone.

    Cool thing! Just a stupid questions, to be more "accurate", shouldn't it be put in the amp fx loop? If I remember correctly the diods are not at the beginning of the signal chain, they're somewhere in the middle - which might be part of the "magic" of the Jubilee sound...

    I'll have to check into that pedal. I've been looking for a Marshallish pedal that has a bass knob on it so that I can take some of it out.

    Funny, I hated it :D

    It was always way too bright for me, back in the day.. but what did I know then? I was using a basswood body strat with single coils, and the head went into an 1x12 Mrsall cab..open back, with a celestion 75 in there.

    It sounded better when I got a matching silver cab with Vintage 30s.. but still too bright.. and not enough oomph.

    I got a 1987x RI, and it just devoured the Jubilee. I've liked the JCMs, plexi clones, the 1987 RI... but not the Jubilee

    Funny how people's taste in tone differ... and that's a good thing :D

    If it sounds even CLOSE to my (sniff sniff) JCM Slash, I'm buying one.

    I don't know, I have a Voodoo modded 2205 that has clipping diodes (I think they're still in there), and a lot of the tone comes from the power tubes. Using a Hotplate makes a big differece, which tells me a good part of the tone is after the preamp stage. I know the "Marshall in a box" thing is always talked about, but I don't think there is such a thing without the right amp to compliment the tone.

    I think the Marshall Shredmaster does the Marshall in a box thing pretty well. I've used it with 6L6 and EL84 amps and it is pretty versatile.
