    Great score! I have three, two reverb and one non-reverb. Gigged and rehearsed with them hundreds of times. Love the Pathfinder 15s!

    WOW! Great find! I'm jealous. In fact, we can't be friends anymore! :(

    At least we’ll always have the memories.

    Is the tone much different between the reverb and non-reverb versions, or do people just prefer to have reverb?

    I’ve played the amp a few times now, and I’m really impressed with the warm clean tones I’m getting, and how well the amp takes OD and distortion pedals. The wife also thinks it looks really cool, and she thinks I should get rid of the Monoprice 15 watt tube amp that’s been my bedroom amp for the last couple of years (based purely in the aesthetics). I haven’t had the heart to tell her that I’ll probably keep both and run them in stereo...

    I love the utility and portability of this amp and it's my main gigging it now as I do small rooms I keep mine goosed all the time with an overdrive pedal on and roll from clean to dirty just with my guitar volume but I'd have to have Reverb so it's the 15R you got to have
    It's a very small spring but it's real and you got to crank it but it works

    I had a Pathfinder 15R and really dug it. It got destroyed in a natural disaster and I've always wanted to get another. I really don't understand why these ever went out of production.

    No tone difference I can detect, but I don't have very sophisticated ears.
