With the classic good looks of its bigger brothers, the new 15-Watt, 1 x 8-inch Pathfinder 15 combo packs a profusion of Vox style and sound into a highly compact and affordable package. Like other family members, it sports typical Vox characteristics like basket-weave vinyl, diamond grille cloth, white piping, gold beading and, of course, "chicken head" pointer knobs.
The Pathfinder 15 houses a wonderful sounding, vintage Tremolo effect and is extremely versatile when it comes to tone. Its distinctive, maroon colored top panel features a Gain Boost switch plus controls for Volume, Gain, Treble, Bass, Tremolo Speed and Tremolo Depth. Both the Gain Boost and the built-in Tremolo are footswitchable via an optional Vox VFS2 dual footswitch, offering you even more performance power.
Bulldog Speakers and More
The Pathfinder 15 produces 15 watts of power that drives a specially voiced 8-inch Vox Bulldog speaker. In addition to a Headphone output that mutes the internal speaker for "silent" practice, the rear panel also has a specially filtered Line Out jack for recording/live work and an External Speaker output as well.
The Pathfinder 15R is identical to the Pathfinder 15 but also features an onboard Spring Reverb system with a Reverb control that adjusts the level of the effect.
