the peavey windsor is pretty much a Marshall JCM800. if that helps any.

The Windsor would kick the living bejesus out of the Ibanez Toneblaster.
The Windsor is probably the best 400 a guitarist could spend.

Try out the amp and see for yourself.

And that and the Toneblaster are completely different.

The valveking has more balls? I beg to differ! I just tried this baby out at GC the other day after looking all over for one for the last 4 months or so. Its a marshall all the way, huge, roaring, thick tone. The valveking is based off a mesa. IMO, the Windsor is way ballsier than the valveking.

I've heard its cleans aren't too great, though.

Try it out and check out the cleans

For better cleans, turn the texture knob all the way over to the A/B side. Everyone sests it halfway, thinkig nthats the "normal" position. The a/b side tends to have more headroom, and then you get more gain towards the "a" side.

now way does the valveking have more "balls" than a windsor.....120 watts to 100..pretty big differnce, and if you dont have an overdrive or distortion pedal its going to be really hard to distort the windsor because theres only one channel and its 120 watts so before it breaks up you might lose an eardrum or 2 but from what ive heard its a decent amp for the lower $ tube heads

AFAIK that's a pretty ignorant post. It would be awfully hard to tell the difference with a difference in 20w, especially at such a high amount of wattage. There is more headroom for cleans on the Windsor, with the increase in wattage. Secondly it's not hard to distort the Windsor because in my experience Peaveys (or at least the 6505's) they have mostly preamp saturation. There is a master volume, meaning you can get both clean and distorted tones from the same level of volume. I've heard it's a good amp at a good price. Pick one up before the price increases dramatically as many Peaveys as they gain in age do. The one thing I do agree with you is that the Valveking isn't all that great in comparison to the Windsor.

^ are you serious...20watts differnce in tubes makes a huge differnce especially in a single channel amp. and even with your expericne in peaveys its not about the company its the tubes wattage overall amp specs. 6505's are made to sound good a low volumes also so yuo cant compare charachteristics to a "metal amp" like the 6505 to a more classic single channel amp like the windsor. suck me

It's called a master volume. This means you get preamp distortion without the intense volume. You're still ignorant.

Like your guitar though, nice choice.

Then I'll have two? Schwing!

Anyways, back on topic... get the Windsor if you have the money. It's a great choice, and can achieve lots of good tones.

The only thing to be careful about with the Windsor, is it's voicing.
If you're looking for a modern type of sound, I'd save up a bit more for a different amp. The Windsor is REALLY 80's voiced. As far as gain goes though, it has enough gain for everything but say, death metal/black metal.

what? the windsor had plenty of pre-amp gain last time I tried it, just as unskathed says it's pretty 80's voiced.
