    The Peavey Windsor is based off of the Marshall Super Lead (Model 1959).

    Only $399.99, instead of $2,000 for the Marshall.

    ...Wow! ...I'd like to check one of those out! ...sounds like a kool amp!
    ...And SKYNYRD sure made the Peavey's sound good.

    ;) ;) ;) Now YOU Da Man Tread! :) But seriously....You're Right!! I do often think that Peavey does get overlooked as a straight Rock Blues Amp? OK...I'm by no means a Heavy Player and NOT into Massive High Gain, but I have used an old Peavey on occasion and it has ALWAYS served me well enough.

    Anyway...On With The Debate. :coolsmiley:

    Wow!...Big Grin!..its nice to know other folks such as yourself Lexie like a Peavey or two as well....
    I have (and have had) a Classic 50 4/10 for years...bought it new in 1993/4(?)...sounds kool etc...but once you engage that OD channel the projection is ....well ...nowhere to be found in the mix.
    Still like it though....I never sell anything...LOL!..the only thing I've sold in the last 20 yrs was a Mesa Dual Rectifier...Chrome "Tread Plate" (no punn intended) front....Hated it that much in 1993. ;)
    ...Again..sorry to hi-jack...back to the "topic at hand." :)

    Re: i hope i dont become the next angus.........................................

    Many years ago (late 70s) Peavey used to make an amp called the Vintage, tweed covered and obviously based on the old Fenders. I did a PA hire gig once where the band had hired one of these and I have to say it sounded magical. Made even the cheapest guitars sound great. Probably too far ahead of its time, it would sell thousands now in this age of so-called boutique amps. :)

    RIGHT ON! That's why I was interested in Peavey in the first place.

    Didn't they use the Mace amps that were part transistor, or am I imagining things?

    I've always thought Peavey was a good value with few exceptions. Where ever they are aiming in the market, they seem to always offer a good product for the money.

    I'm sure they used the Mace, (and according to Mr. Ed King, they also used assorted Ampegs, Marshalls, and Gary used an old Hiwatt he got from The Who at the time Leon was using one of Entwhistle's Fenderbirds on the OGWT) but not sure what it was.

    Nevermind, it was all-tube with 6L6's.

    uhhh i know that dumbass! the gain knob on the clean channel is for OVERDRIVING THE TUBES. not for distortion.

    You overdrive the tubes to achieve distorsion. Its all the same thing. Overdrive is just what more subtle distorsion is referred to as.
