NAMM06: Peavey debuts british-voiced guitar amplifier


Peavey has introduced the new Windsor guitar amplifier head and 412 enclosure. The Windsor is a single-channel, 120-watt, all-tube amplifier voiced to classic British rock guitar tones.
The Windsor uses three 12AX7 preamp tubes and four EL34 power-amp tubes in a single-channel configuration with what Peavey tell us are exclusive tone-shaping features.
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 Textureâ„¢ 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 a 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. The accompanying Windsor 412 enclosure utilizes four Supremeâ„¢ XL loudspeakers specially voiced to match the tones of the Windsor amp head.
