The Vox Pathfinder Series Pathfinder 15R is a small combination amp for electric guitar. It’s a very small amp, although I don’t remember the speaker size. The name obviously lets you know that it’s got 15 watts of power. It also has built in tremolo and reverb effects. I used it at a studio but didn’t we end up using it on the track. There are a bunch of amps in the Pathfinder Series but this is the only one that I’ve used to date. It’s got ¼” connections for input and a foot switch on the front panel.


The configuration of the Vox Pathfinder Series Pathfinder 15R is fairly basic to follow. Included on the control panel are knobs for gain, volume, treble, bass, tremolo speed, tremolo depth, and reverb.. That’s all there is to using the amplifier so I don’t think that users will need a manual.


The sound of the Vox Pathfinder Series Pathfinder 15R isn’t anything to write home about but it’s still a decent little amp for the price. Don’t expect to get that full classic Vox sound from this as you’re going to have the spring for an AC15 or AC30 to get that sort of sound. Still, the Pathfinder 15R isn’t a bad sounding amp and would be perfect for practicing at home or shows in a really small venue. The effects are nice as the tremolo is pretty decent and so is the spring reverb. I wouldn’t recommend it for recording and we didn’t use it after trying it mostly because better sounding options were available.


The Vox Pathfinder Series Pathfinder 15R is a dirt cheap amplifier! If you don’t want to spend very much but still want a name brand amplifier with a effects and a decent sounding, the Pathfinder 15R isn’t a bad choice at all. The price will make it accessible to most guitarists starting up. If you can get a used one it’ll be even cheaper as you can probably find them online too. A nice amp for your buck but not a pro’s amp.
