This 10-Watt, 1 x 6.5" combo’s eye-catching looks are also classic VOX and include basket-weave, leather-look vinyl, our distinctive diamond grille cloth and, of course, chicken head knobs! Small but all-important details such as the white piping have also been faithfully reproduced, perfectly recapturing the legendary look of VOX.

Little Yet Loud! The Pathfinder 10’s powerful yet always tone-filled 10-Watt output, makes this amp perfect for home practice, backstage warm-up and recording. The Clean/Overdrive switch allows you to change instantly between clean and dirty sounds. With a mere press of this switch you can go from a crystal clear clean sound to our uniquely warm distortion; or from a slightly crunchy bluesy tone to a high-gain, modern-rock roar.

Want to practice late at night without disturbing your neighbours? No problem! Just plug your headphones into the Headphone/Line Out jack and away you go – your sleeping neighbours won’t hear a thing because using this jack automatically mutes the amp’s speaker! This jack also doubles as a specially filtered Line Out which is perfect for recording your amp without having to worry about setting up any pesky microphones. The Pathfinder 10 also features controls for Gain, Treble, Bass and Volume plus a Clean/Overdrive switch.

  • Input Jacks. This, believe it or not, is where you plug your guitar into the amp!
  • Gain Control. This adjusts the overall preamp gain of the amplifier. This control can produce a wide variety of killer tones - from clean to crunchy to crazy and all points in-between! What you get all depends on how you set this control and also how you have the Clean/Overdrive Switch (3) set. In both Switch modes - Clean & Overdrive - turning the Gain control down (i.e. counter clockwise) will clean up your sound while cranking it up (i.e. turning it clockwise) will dirty things up. The possibilities are endless.
  • Clean/Overdrive Switch. As its name suggests, this switch puts the preamp of the Pathfinder 10 in one of two distinctly different modes -Clean (switch "out") or Overdrive (switch "in"). And, as you'd expect, the Overdrive mode has bags more gain than the Clean mode. So, if you want more gain just press this button in and let rip!
  • Treble Control. This adjusts the treble (high) frequencies in your tone. It can take your sound from soft and round, to bright and cutting, and any point in-between.
  • Bass Control. This adjusts the bass (low) frequencies in your tone. It can take your sound from warm and light, to dark and heavy and any point in-between.
  • Volume Control. This determines the overall volume of the amplifier. Setting this control high while keeping the Gain low works well for clean sounds (HINT: make sure the Clean/Overdrive Switch is "out" if you wanna go clean!), while setting the Master Volume lower, engaging the Overdrive mode and turning up the Gain will give you a fat, distorted sound at a lower, "bedroom friendly" volume.
  • Headphone/Line Out Jack. This dual output carries a specially filtered signal for use with either headphones or for direct connection to a soundboard or recording console. The LINE OUT gives you a good sounding signal for recording or live work without having to mic up the amp. Inserting a jack-plug into this jack will mute the internal speaker.
  • Power ON/OFF Switch & LED. On/Off switch for mains (AC) power to amplifier. Plus power indicator LED.

Blown Away


To preface my review I learned something about Solid State amps when trading for this, there are three types of Solid State amps; analog, digital and modeling. I had a Marshall MG30CFX that fell into the digital category and sounded much better than a Blackstar modeling amp I had owned for all of one day. I kept the Marshall for about 8 months since it was not my primary amp but was always troubled I could not get a good high gain tone out of it; the other three channels sounded great but the limitations of a digital Solid State amp showed thru in OD2. So I went to my local Guitar Center to trade my Marshall in on an Orange Crush, but when I got there and played both the Orange and the Vox I was blown away by the Analog tone of the Vox. The clean tone, which I don't use a whole lot, is classic Vox. From almost acoustic sounding to a British chimey style sound. The Overdrive Channel is just a beast. I read some reviews that don't like the high gain in this amp, they obviously didn't take the time to dial it in. The simple controls of Gain, Bass, Treble and Volume while very simple are very sensitive and the smallest turn makes a noticeable difference in your tone. The sustain and the feedback are just incredible for a Solid State amp. I really never thought a Solid State amp could sound like this. I think it would do great for recording and home practice; but if you want to play out you will need something bigger or mic it. Lastly, all of my results are just my guitar (2 Deans with custom pickups) plugged directly into the amp sans any pedals.

Well Worth The Bucks


"This little amp can kick it back, or up a notch. The controls don't require a PhD, and the sound and tone possibilities can keep you busy for 48 hours straight. The gain is accurate, and the effects meet the mark. Get one before the word gets out."





"Surprisingly powerful and rich in tone. If you live in a studio apartment like me, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. I'm just waiting for the day when I can really crank it up."
