A while back I created a thread about this amp, a Vox Pathfinder 15R that I built a cabinet for, with four 8" speakers. I thought it sounded good at home, it performed well at rehearsals, but I finally got a chance to try it at a gig. It was kind of a "different" situation.....a private party at a private club where another band also performed, and we both occasionally had other musicians join in on songs. At one point we had four guitarists onstage at the same time, which I find "unwieldy". Among the other guitar amps was a Blues Junior and an AC-10. My Pathfinder is in a pine cabinet, with a mix of three Vox eights, and one Jensen eight. Very "solid" and punchy sound, even better than another PF15R I have with one 12" speaker. This solid state amp easily sounded as good (or better) than the other tube driven amps. One thing that I think helped, was the other guitarists were heavily "effected" and processed sounding. I have a pedal board, but I only used my Mosaic 12-String Emulator on one song, and a chorus and Tube Screamer on one other....in other words, I played the amp without ANY effects. (other than a touch of reverb) To my ear, letting the amp "shine" on its own is the best test of how an amp sounds. Here are a few pics of the amp. BTW....it was also the first chance I've had to gig my #1 Telecaster with a new Bootstrap Pickups' Pretzel bridge pickup.....it sounded AWESOME, and paired very well with a Bootstrap Palo Duro neck p/up.
