Product Description

The single-channel Windsor Studio features a footswitchable Boost button, which increases the preamp level to allow the flexibility of a dual-channel amp plus control over the dynamic response and rich distortion characteristics of its class-A tube power topology. The Boost function can be used as an overdrive feature for the power section or simply as a volume boost for soloing. This 15-watt amplifier uses two 12AX7 preamp tubes and one EL34 power-amp tube in a single-ended configuration with no negative feedback. The power section is designed to accommodate 6L6GC, 6550, 6CA7, KT88 and KT66 octal power tubes, as well as variations on those types.

Peavey's exclusive new Power Sponge output attenuator incrementally adjusts the power output of the amplifier while maintaining the distortion characteristics of the power amp at any chosen volume level. Also onboard is a transformer-balanced XLR direct output with a unique microphone simulator that allows players to send the amplifier signal to a recording device or front-of-house mix without the use of a microphone. Additional features include true spring reverb, preamp volume, master volume, three-band tone equalization, footswitchable effects loop and a single 12-inch loudspeaker.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Peavey products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (13 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "SWEET!"
Sound: Great Marshall-like tone, especially the overdrive. Feature: The "Power Sponge" attenuator is awesome! It lets you crank the amp to satisfying break-ups, then dial down the actual speaker output without changing the tone. If you do a lot of home recording, this amp is perfect for it. Not only can you get that full-throated tone at bedroom levels, but the balanced D.I. output is something you usually only find on much more costly amps. Plus, it's built so you can swap out the tubes without doing a full re-bias. Nice! Ease of Use: Takes a bit of knob-fiddling to "dial in" a good tone, but once you're there, you're golden. Quality: It's a Peavey. Not a glamorous brand, but one with a long history of being rock-solid. This amp looks and feels like it will outlive me. Value: You can NOT find this tone with these feature for less. Anywhere. Manufacturer Support: Never had a complaint about Peavey support The Wow Factor: Good looking, classic colors, well built, excellent sound, powerful features. What more could you ask? Overall: This is a relatively new amp, so I've only had it so long. However, I'm happy enough that I'm selling my other amps off!

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "ONe trick pony that rides like a dream."
Sound: This amp does the light to medium blues gain perfectly. Does other sounds but this is why you would buy this amp. Late sixties rock and SRV come to mind. The clean is never clean like a Fender but clean enough to call it clean but not a strong point at all!! You can mess with it and if you use an amp modeler you can do more with it and the amp does a good job of warming up effects processors. If you want a living room quiet SRV tone then this is great! If you want a low powered tube amp to warm up your multi effects/amp modeler than this amp is great. If you want a lot of loud clean headroom dont even look at it! Feature: If you want what I described before than being able to change power tubes and having the power soak is great. Ease of Use: I give it an 8 only becuase it takes some time to tweak the knobs to your guitar. There are sweet spots but you have to find them. usually requires alot of bass a little more than mid for the mids and half or less on the highs. The highs can get brittle quickly. Quality: No problems with it. I am running it through a 2x12 cabinet as well as with the built in speaker and nothing has happened thus far. Value: THis amp is priced right and dont see any thing else like it even close. Manufacturer Support: No experience as I have not needed any. The Wow Factor: It is what it is. Overall: I like it for home playing but if playing out would use something else. Though I have thought about getting a tube power amp and running both amps or just running straight into the power amp with my RP1000.
