VOX Pathfinder 10w Combo Amplifier Reviews
This is the first VOX amp I\'ve owned and used, for the Â£50 price tag this is a great sounding practice/bedroom amp. From the moment I plugged it in I knew I\'d made a good choice.
The tones produced are perfect for the sound I was trying create (umm, a slice of Johnny Marr spliced with Peter Buck wrapped in a warm 60\'s pop blanket). It also looks great, the classic VOX styling really make it stand out.
This little beast has now replaced my original amp, the only downside of this little beauty is I\'m now tempted to pay out the full whack on it\'s big big brother the AC30.....umm maybe after Christmas :)
This amp is possibly being overlooked as it\'s the lowest priced Vox on this site, buyers opting to step up the rung a little and purchase the DA or Valvetronix range with their digital modeling and tube-like sounds, perhaps? This is a shame, as the Pathfinder 10 is an astonishingly good amplifier, a little retro-marvel infact! It\'s not trying to be an all singing all dancing; now I\'m a Marshall stack, now I\'m a Fender Custom, now I\'m a Bee trapped in a shoebox kind of amp...
It\'s a Vox! It looks like a Vox, \'walks like a vox and quacks like a Vox! (note: amplifier does not actually walk).
What appears to be a lack of features actually turn out to be just the opposite, the Gain/Volume knobs + the Clean/Overdrive switch along with a curious mind give you tons of classic sounds. While the distortion can get a little like a mistuned transistor when overdone, the Clean channel, with a hint of gain, is absolutely crystal clear, though a semi-acoustic or archtop this channel is obscenely wonderful!
The cabinet itself looks great, compact but still has presence, although missing a few little touches that you\'d expect if you added a \"0\" onto the price of this amp it has all the Vox hallmarks, chickenheads, cloth, piping, gold trim...
Whats Bad? Switching between Clean / Overdrive channels, without fail, has you scurrying to the volume and gain knobs, don\'t know if its just my guitars - but the volume difference is very obvious.
This amp is quite loud, an old fashioned 10watts of power. It may not compete with an enthusiastic drummer, but it can stun sheep when cranked up 10. It would be a perfect bedroom, living room, recording or coffee-shop amplifier, it has the looks and the sound for that solo or guitar/vocalist appearance in an intimate setting.
If you\'ve got £50 spare... you will not be disappointed, this is a gem that you\'ll never sell.
