Are these amps good? As in what genres of music would they do well, I'd love to try one except the only place that has Peaveys isn't getting the Windsor in until December or January I've read a few good reviews about this amp in magazines, and yeah, thats about it.

80's hard rock and metal. no cleans worth talking about.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I own one,and as the above poster said, no cleans, well no CLEAN cleans if you know what I mean. Lots of dirt even if you roll back the volume on your guitar, as well as have the gain down on the amp. It gets a great old school (early Metallica/Slayer) metal sound with the gain up. It also does classic rock very well.

If you use an overdrive/eq you could get a more modern metal sound out of it.

In my opinion, best 1 channel amp for the price, if you don't want cleans. I love mine.

Id say itd be great as an a/b'd amp, such as having one for clean and one for overdrive, as the windsor has great overdrive for just about any genre that requires it, and if anything, id say it doesnt do metal well, its way too bright.
but yeah, pretty much zero cleans.

^ Agreed, in the US at least. In the UK they only go for £50 less than a Laney GH50L.


yeah. if you're in the UK you definitely want to try that laney head to head with the peavey.

im really wanting the classic 30 as my next amp.
basically, the windsor is a big jcm800, from what i hear.
itd be easier to crank the classic 30, plus itd be easier to carry it around, and have decent cleans.
also, be aware that a 15 watt windsor combo is coming out.
also, he classic 50 ive heard is super heavy. its got a built in fan, and either 2 or 4 speakers so its alot heavier than the classic 30.

oh, well, i was talking about the combo. i guess the windsor would be nice, but ive heard great things about laney.

also, the classic 30 head probably wouldnt be that much louder than a 50 watt head. plus itd be easier to crank.

The windsor is an okay amp. extremely loud. Very bright and quite a lot of gain. If you want cleans don't get it, if you want overdrive it may be worth taking a look at but even still there are better ways of getting overdrive for $400, and at much more ear friendly levels too! I recommend an amp with good cleans like a Blues Deluxe but I imagine the classic 30 would do well too and using a TS-9 and a TS-9DX, in that order. It will get you a very thick overdrive sound.

Really no need to crank a Winsor though. The stack has plenty of Gain at bedroom levels I'd say.

I've tried a cranked BJ with a TS-9, and the Windsor was way better overdrive wise IMO. Also, TS9+ Windosr> TS9 + BJ.

yeah, the bj *might* be better but only cause you added the extra pedal. if you added the ts9dx to the windsor, it would definitely sound much better than the bj, even tho I personally think the straight ts-9 +windsor combination would sound better.

Wow, I'm afraid to put anything stronger than my Bad Monkey into my Windsor.
I was thinking about putting my Silver Dragon into it, but that might just result in total feedback and sloppy gain chaos.

Nah the Windsor is very harsh overdrive and **** cleans. The bj has nice cleans with no overdrive but with the TS-9 and the DX they sound extremely smooth. Very BRMCesque.

I used to have one and this dude right here summed up everything I was going to say about it. Just make sure you realize that you will get absolutely no cleans worth anything with that amp.

Dont buy a blues junior if you are playing hard rock or metal. It will be a serious disappointment.

They're called Blues Juniors for a reason. The most gain you would ever want to squeeze out of one is late 70's arena rock (think like foreigner) and thats with it cranked, 'buckers and an overdrive pedal.

They're great for what they do, but only that.
