iamqman's review"Eeeh not great but look at the price!!"

Peavey Windsor Head
This amp is not the best but come on look at the price. this amp retail for right around $400 and come on how can you beat that price. There are some great features on this amp like the texture control which tightens and loosens up the power section of the amp.

The amp can sound amazing with the right speaker cabinet. I suggest not getting a Peavey cab since they are just garbage and I'm a Peavey fan. Get a nice Marshall cabinet or a decent Mesa Boogie cab and see how this amp will open up with good Greenbacks or Celestion v30's.

UTILIZATION

Peavey Windsor Tube Amp Head Features:

100W all-tube watts
Three 12AX7 preamp tubes
Four EL34 power amp tubes
Single channel
Footswitchable gain boost
Three-band EQ
Footswitchable effects loop
Master Volume
Patent-pending Class A-A/B Texture control
Patented Resonance and Presence control
High and low inputs

SOUNDS

This amp sounds a little like a Marshall JCM800 in its character of voicing but is has its own thing going. I like this amp like all the Peaveys with a Gibson Les Pauls or another humbucker style pickup guitar. I think the humbucker sounds the best through Peavey's type of distortion. It has a great resonance feature that controls the bottom end of the amp a bit which is a nice addition.

I can't complain too much or at all about this amp because for the money the tone is better than some $2000 amps I have heard. I would invest in a better cabinet because I have never cared for the Peavey speakers or cabs.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in at around $400, which in my opinion is an absolute steal of a price. You can get a whole lot for that kind of money these days and many guitar pedals cost most that this. Invest in a nice Mesa Boogie 4x12 cab or a decent Marshall cab with Greenback speakers.

If you are looking for the best $400 you'll ever spend then this is your day. You will be happy with the tone and coming at 120 watts you will shake down the walls with this amp.

iamqman's review"Sweet deal!"

Peavey Windsor Head
The tone of this mp doesn't sound all that great, but for $400 how can you complain that much. It sounds good enough for this price for sure. The texture control is a great feature to get the amp tightened up or loosen the amp a bit based upon your feel for the amp.

OVERALL OPINION

So I'm not professional tester so just to say I acquired this head three months ago and I am more than happy! I am guitarist in a Thrash (http: \ \ www.myspace.com \ trashtatav) and value for money is excellent I thought not having the means for a head lamp and it is true that € 500 j ' I jumped at the chance is very cheap for an all-tube! the distortion is a powerful and fine grain that suits me very well, can not be against playing in the clear or very difficult because even with the preamp to the mini there is always a small grain crunch ... well for my style, no problem! I am with a Marshall cabinet JCM900 Lead 1960A makes a very good overall sound. The head grows very well especially with its strong enough after 20 minutes of play really nice I highly recommend!

Peavey Windsor Head
Power manufacturer claims, or if I 12O watts is abusing tural, the lamps are by appointment to remind us, of course, those are OE quality trs average, however, meaningless given the modest purchase price rgulirment finding in stores, and then turns the lights ca! I do not m'tendrai rglages and the effects it is best to make the Discoveries from a reseller.

UTILIZATION

This head has a simple configuration unexceptional accssible everything is clear and the sound as it is similar and typ particulirement by far one of the many Obviously Marshall JCM 8OO, however, the clean sound is practically non-existent and lattention surprise, ds that we try to Exceeds level 1 and even less of the saturated volume knob on, trs good for those who do not know the sound clear in their games but for all others is the amp not to buy or at least try prventivement has in store. Personally I played on two Marshall 1960 A, is my humble opinion is an impractical requirement for sound quality I mean by that, whatever the brand of the cabinet must be used to put the premium for a given + as correct.

SOUNDS

No comment on this topic.!

OVERALL OPINION

I use this head for + a year and get full satisfaction for it take me to do a meeting on the ebay store music St Germain, St Germain les Corbeil situ in dpartement 91, the the boss who prnomme Pierre PROCD a change in my amp, I will not go into the technical aspects of this transformation as well as its price is low as +! musician friends rest assured s
it's the top of "RANGE" and that whatever happens you will be greatly satisfied with the report of this transformation, because in this case prcis one can speak of transformation, and even + bonus, your amp will transcend warranty and found clear sound even pushing the knob trs high volume, short, to explain all this it is best to contact the developer of this project that I know today, will happy to share his passion amps and music!!
