    I just tried that setting. All I can say is I gotta echo your "I'll be darned" reaction! :eek: If that's not a Blackface sound, it'll do until a Blackface comes along. ;) I like it both clean and with OD. I tried it with both Gain and Volume set somewhere between 8 and 9 o'clock. It was still too loud for "don't wake the kids" applications, but I've got the house to myself right now, so... I didn't touch the settings on my pedal, played through it set just like it was the last time I used it. However, I did roll back the tone on my tele a bit. I have been and remain a true fan of the PF15R. This setting just adds yet another dimension to the possibilities. Such a versatile little amp!

    ssmtb, you referred to yours as a Pathfinder 15. Doesn't yours still have a jack input on the rear panel for headphones? Would that be an option for the volume levels you seek when the kids are asleep?

    So no one has to hear it trying to sound blackfaced but you...

    Something tells me you'll be getting a lot of mileage out of this latest point of discussion...:twisted:

    Nah, hit and run. Far be it from me to really say how someone should sound. I have and love my 15R personally, but I use a even more mid heavy speaker with it. I do not have any SF or even the 63 Pro that got traded out 2 months back, a Brownie. Never had a BF, although did have a 'BlackFaced' BMR VV clone, and a Pro Series 93 Super Amp which had a push pull Bassman/BF in the circuit. Always in the fat position.

    When I played out with these I could never get heard, pumping mids to where no one else was worked better for me...

    And that mid-heavy speaker would be? And is that for gigs or home practice? Just curious.

    I sometimes run my Pathfinder through a Night Train 112 cab, which has the Greenback, a middy speaker. It can seem a bit muffled after the normal speaker - I also ran it through a Vintage 30 and that was spikey. I haven't found one that's as good as the stock but bigger. Not that I've looked much.

    Red Fang, did not get it out but pretty sure it would hang with all but a super aggressive drummer, or too big an area. That is a loud speaker, also have used a Greenback with it, sounded good, but not sure it would be loud enough for rambunctious sessions.
