Peavey Debuts British-Voiced Windsor guitar Amplifier

- Press Release

In one of many Peavey SNAMM announcements, they have 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.

Infusing the tones of rock’s golden era with exclusive Peavey technology and reliability, the Peavey Windsor uses three 12AX7 preamp tubes and four EL34 power-amp tubes in a single-channel configuration with 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 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. The accompanying Windsor 412 enclosure utilizes four Peavey loudspeakers specially voiced to match the tones of the Windsor amp head.

The Peavey Windsor guitar amplifier and cabinet will be available in Q4 2006 from authorized Peavey retailers.
