Right now, i can buy the new Peavey Windsor for $400. I can also buy a 4 year old Peavey XXX with no damage for 400 as well. Is the XXX too loud for home practice? My amp will be used mainly at home and only a few gigs. (The Windsor is 15W tube w/ an attenuator and the XXX is 60W tube w/o attenuator)

Also, i heard the XXX is a very bright amp? I'm kind of looking for a dark tone but I also have an alder guitar with active EMG's (ironic, i know). The music i play is metal, classic rock, death metal. thanks

Don't know if it's the best choice but I'd go for it, you could sell it if you don't like it anyway.

You'll love the XXX, and if you don't you can resell it for $600 easily. I've sold XXX's for $800.

That's too good of a price to pass up.

GC just sold me a windsor for $279 brand new last week. At that price I couldn't pass it up.

i just finished reading a lot of reviews about it on harmony central. a lot of the reviews say that the XXX has too much thin and noisy gain and it's not worth buying. is this true..?

Has anyone noticed that he's talking about the Windsor Studio combo?
You should get the Windsor so you can make sound clips and post a review for us!!!

Depends what kind of music you play, really.

The Peavey XXX. Higher gain (which I think you want ), Higher (MIA) quality, lot mroe EQ control, just all around better amp. Good price too.
