The Windsor Tube Amp Head employs three 12AX7 preamp tubes and four EL34 power-amp tubes in a single-channel configuration to deliver 100W of the sound of rock's golden era with exclusive Peavey technology and reliability.
While most amplifiers leave the EQ to the preamp section, the Windsor features Peavey's patented Presence and Resonance controls, which adjust speaker damping from tight to loose in the high and low frequency ranges, respectively. The Windsor also offers Peavey's patent-pending Texture circuitry for adjusting the response characteristics from modern Class A/B push-pull to vintage Class A sounds. The Texture control provides incremental adjustment for an incredible range of tone texturing and coloring.
The Windsor also features a footswitchable gain boost, three-band rotary EQ on the preamp, master volume, footswitchable effects loop and high and low inputs.

PEOPLE, THIS AMP WILL GET CLEAN WITH DIFFERENT TUBES. **READ** First, the ValveKing cab. It's really great. Lot's of low end punch for palm muting, screaming highs, good mids. Very high quality cab, I would put it up against my Mesa 212 any day. I spent the better part of the day trying out different pre-amp tube combinations for this Peavey Windsor head. My goal was to obtain a useable clean sound without losing a lot of gain crunch/roar. After testing different tubes in different locations, this is the best sound the amp will ever make without mods IMO. V1 (closest to input jack)- Leave the 12ax7 JJ tube in it�ۡ���s place. You need the full gain power of a 12ax7 for the marshall roar. V2 (next to V1)- I used an Electro-Harmonix 12ay7 tube to lower the gain in V2, thus making the cleans easier to obtain without losing crunch. V3 (next to EL34's) - I used an Electro-Harmonix 12at7 to smooth out the entire sound of the amp. This takes the harshness away providing a much more smooth and useable tone throughout all volumes. The amp now sounds amazing. You can get perfect clean tones by setting the pre-amp to 2 and using the master for clean volume. there is a very small hint of breakup at pre-amp 3. Setting at 6 will give you nice warm crunch, all the way to 12 will give you the marshall roar without the fizziness. These simple swaps will completely smooth out the tone of this amp, and take away the harsh fizzy distortion. I love this amp and it's simplicity. If you're looking for that Marshall Roar on a budget, look no further. The price for this head AND a 412 VK cab is amazing.
