    This is great, but I think this raised section on the back is actually not so important. I will put the tape or some kind of glue on it. Thank you, this is a great help man!!!

    The way I set my 2555SL to sound its best (presence on 8, bass on 4, mids at noon, highs on 7, lead volume on 10, gain on 6), there is a slight mid-frequency build-up that I like to clean a bit by using a 10-band EQ in the loop to cut about 2-3dB at 250Hz. The resulting tone is pretty much perfection.

    I have a 2555, '87, and JacksonCharvelAddict is spot on with his comment about a MXR ZW44 or a 10 bank EQ. I have both on my pedalboard (see my photo in Full Stack Friday" thread). Depends on the songs I am playing or just when jamming, how I feel. My MXR 10 band is one of the old 110v plug-in's, always on models. I rarely use it. When I want a boost I use the ZW44 sometimes I use the MXR Studio Compressor. It's really badass for a very clean boost. I am able to play loud so I usually dial the volume back a little and let the tubes give me the sustain I really need. Having never played a 2525H I don't know what you're up against but I can tell you I have had a ZW44 since it came out way back when, got rid of an Boss OD1 for it and it is my go-to OD pedal. The MXR 10 band, I have three of them, and they are noisy (I understand why Ozzy said Randy's pedal board was so noisy) or the MXR Studio Compressor will do you well. I haven't used one yet but you may even want to consider a Solo Dallas pedal.

    Wow the Hotcake is the pedal I've been looking for. You know how Drive pedals usually flatten out the dynamics...well this actually adds my dynamic to the sound.
    Its a keeper. Works like a charm with the Jubilee.

    The ZW44 blends so well with the Jubilee. Even with the gain up a ways it sounds great.

    This makes me wan t to get a Fortin Grind. I have heard someone has found the EQ curve on the Grind and recreated the sound with an EQ pedal.

    I've been liking my sugar drive (mxr klon clone) up front to push more gain for leads. May have to check out the hot cake.

    The guy that runs this channel says the Jubilee is his favorite Marshall. His channel alone proves that the Jubilee can do the brutal stuff too.

    I just picked up a 1996 model 2555SL. The thing sounds great and seems to work properly but there is one thing I’m not sure about since I’ve never owned a jube. The clean channel is way quieter than the lead... lead channel if I get output master at noon it’s peeling rye paint, but on the clean channel I csn dime the output master and yes it’s loud but nowhere comparable to what the lead channel would be if it was dimed. Is this normal or could there be an issue.

    Thanks for the reply. Just wanted to check with someone who has some experience with these things. I’m loving it, it’s very similar in tone and overall feel to my 2466 vintage modern but the jube is a lot smoother and has way more bottom in that thumps you in the chest. I always heard the EQ on these things works extremely well and I can confirm that it’s true!
