Winfield amps are all hand-wired using circuit boards and Teflon wire. I use contemporary components with good results and my customers seem pleased with the amps.
I'm an old Rock 'n' Roller (Mott's Men). I played Beatles tunes when they were current and saw them live at Shea Stadium in 1965. I like the tone of the older amps and build them to suit my ear.
The Winfield: A British style amp with a couple twists. It uses EL84s instead of the big bottles and has internally jumpered channels. Available in 5, 18 and 30 watt power ranges. It has a gain switch that cascades channel one into channel two, and a master volume.
The Elizabeth: This is a 5AR4 tube rectified Blackface style amp. Available with or without reverb. It can be had with 6L6 or 6V6 output tubes.
The Cyclone: This is my answer to that other British amp from the 60's. It has an EF86 preamp, 12AX7 Phase inverter, two EL84s in Push=Pull configuration and a 5AR4 Rectifier. It's about 15 Watts, just like the one back then. It has Volume, Tone, Master Volume and Cut controls.
The Typhoon: This is a single-ended true Class A amplifier. It is a unique amp in that is has an EF86 preamp tube, like the Cyclone, an extra gain stage and a single EL84 output stage. About 5 watts, it does clean to grind and everything in-between. It has 4 and 8 ohm outputs and a Heyboer Output transformer.
The Brat: A 14 Watt 6V6 powered amp inspired by the tweed era of Fender amps. It has a cathode follower preamp with volume, treble, middle and bass controls and a poweramp with a cathodyne phase inverter with a pair of 6V6 power tubes and a 5AR4 rectifier.
The Dust Devil: A two-channel amp that is the evolution of the Winfield Cyclone. The Dust Devil adds a second channel, voiced with a little more American flair to add versatility. Channel one is a 12AX7 preamp with Volume, Treble and Bass controls. Sounding like the 60's black face clean channel on those lower powered versions that we have become so attached to.
Channel 2 is the Cyclone channel with an EF86 preamp, Volume and Tone controls. The Cyclone amp section still remains as one of the most expressive and dynamic of all the EL 84 low powered amps we have ever played through. Based on the 15 watt "English" amp of the 1960's you will get that big fat tone that you have always dreamed of without any overdrive pedals. The amp has that beautiful percussive tone when you play with a light touch and will get as big as you want the harder your attack is. It almost becomes horn like.
The Master and Cut Control are Post Phase inverter and affect both channels The power amp consists of a 12AX7 Phase inverter, a pair of El84's and a 5AR4 rectifier tube, putting out a loud 15 Watts. The Dust Devil combines the chime of the British sounding Channel with the American tone of the other channel Using an A-B-Y box you can chose channel one, channel two, or both. Having these two amazing sounding channels to switch between is simply a dream come true. It is loud enough for club use and a great recording amp as well.
Add the retail price of the speaker of your choice to the price of the amplifier.
