This. For sure. Amazing SS amp.
Great suggestions, everyone! I’ve played through a Pathfinder several years back - it’s awesome, but prices are shooting way up. I’ll definitely look into the amps in this thread. Thanks!
Hotone Mojo Diamond with reverb pedal and EQ for a volume boost. I Velcro them to the top of the speaker cab and I'm good to go.
Tech 21 TM10 if you can find one. Mine is 25 years old, never needed service. Weighs about 12 lbs.
For a lap steel, I'm guessing all you really want is a sterling clean sound and don't need heavy distortion options.
A Roland MicroCube has enough volume to keep up with an acoustic and has reverb, delay, tremolo, and a few other useful effects built in, but only a 6-inch speaker. Larger Cubes would do the trick, too.
A small Fender Frontman with reverb could be perfect. The Champion 20 also would do the job.
You can get an awful lot fancier than those, but it sounds to me like something simple will suit your need perfectly.
I have the comically named 'Purple Wind' model. Is it a Marshall sound-a-like in a cutesy format?, I don't know. What I do know is it sounds fantastic through a decent speaker, and if a DI with cab emulation is used between the amp and cab, and that DI signal is fed to FOH for the PA to do the lifting while the cab is used for stage monitoring, folk assume the cab is some sort of boutique combo and the Hotone, a pedal
That amuses me still rather more than it should.
i have a great amp by my side at the ready ---
Blackstar ID:CORE 10
it has 2 six inch speakers in stereo - a real nice little
screamer - here's the top... i love it and i have not even connected the thing to my PC.
i use it on acoustic as well as my Tele,
good luck with your endless search, /s
I will third the suggestion of a Spark40. While I favor a THR10 for sound and simplicity, the Spark is no slouch and can get much louder than you’d expect.
But if you can’t stand tweaking your amp via a phone or tablet then I’ll second the suggestion of Tech 21 Trademark 10. It is amazingly good and the company’s support for this long discontinued amp is great. (Hook it to a 2x12 or half-stack and you’ll find it punches way above its weight)
runs on batteries if you decide you need to play without an outlet.
about a 12" cube
if you want 2 inputs
buy 2 ....
Fender Champion 20?
Several built in effects and voices . . . only $99.
Where are y’all finding $300 pathfinder 15r’s on Reverb? Last one I saw was listed at almost $800. The secret got out.
When I used to sit around in people's living rooms fried I didn't really think about the guitar, mostly I wondered if they could hear what I was thinking or was I talking and just thought I was thinking, ----mmm weird.
I mostly fry at home these days.
Been a long time amigo
Bugera V5 Infinium
New on Sweetwater. Ask for best deal.
Used on Reverb. Or Guitar Center used. I had just done a search and there was an 'excellent' for $132, but it got bought shortly after.
Thanks for all the suggestions! Will try and find some to try out.
What??? I bought three when they were just a nice amp. This is crazy!
I have one I might sell, but would need at least 150 plus shipping. It doesn’t have reverb though…
Not my coveted #1 of 750 pathfinder 15 SMR though!
You have many choices that will serve you well. This could be the beginning of a new collection. I have had many. Blackstar ID:core 10 (not the 20 or 40) is pretty nice. Roland Cube series or the mobile cube (having battery option is good). Kantana is awesome but probably over kill for jamming with an acoustic. The Fly 3 is real cool but limited FX I prefer the Laney Lion instead (use phone app for FX)
Whatever you decide, it will be money well spent.
