Yes it is made in china. Doesn't have much headroom either, but that's only a problem if you're looking for good headroom.
#5
No catch really, its made in China like stated and there are a ton better cabs out there. But all in all its a great amp and a good substitute if you cant afford a JCM 800. I would suggest getting the head and a decent 2x12 cab though.

watts really don't matter in cost, there's 5w amps that are worth far more than 300w amps. even for tubes.

the windsor is just pretty cheap. don't get the stack, just get the head.

hmm...

well it is literally impossible to get a pure clean tone out of the amp. and the cab is pretty crap.

other than that, the thing resembles a hot-rodded jcm800. it's a damn good price if that's what you're looking for.

Clean tones are hard to get (not completely impossible)...but the amp sounds great. Very nice classic rock crunch...needs a boost to get into metal territory though.

seems like a great deal, i'm always sketchy about products not made in the USA.. quality never satisfies me but i'm sure for 500 it's worth every penny.



Lol where do you think we get the parts they use in the USA models

But I do agree theres alot of bad apples out there, but I havent really heard to many complaints about the Windsor. And there are quite a few good chinese factorys out there...

I would say if you get it, buy an avatar cab loaded with the hellatone 60's. Then when you get the money, swap out the transformer and retube the sucker.
If it doesn't get enough gain for you, you can always get some one to mod in an extra 12ax7 for an extra gain stage.

I haven't played through the head version, but from what I've heard, it's similar to a hot-rodded JCM800, oh and I guess you're better off getting a separate cab from what I'm reading.
my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps
