My quest for a great sounding small amp ended about 6 years ago when I remembered Kid Ramos, A friend of mine for over 30 years, telling me about a little amp he bought he bought for his son. The Vox Pathfinder 15. He now uses one or two for smaller gigs.These amps need absolutely nothing done to them to sound great! Yup, it is solid state and has no tubes whatsoever. If thats a problem for you, get over yourself and save some money. Bought my first one brand new for $119.00. Bought a second one used on Craigslist for $60.00 These are no longer in production but can still be found used for under $100.00. I consider myself very lucky to own some very cool amps, including A Juke 1210, 5E5A Tweed Pro, Red Plate CDT, Ampeg Reverberocket II & J20, Quilter MicroPro 200-8 & 101 Mini Head, and a couple old Sano’s. Anyways, I keep the Vox Pathfinder 15r in my living room and play it the most. Always puts a smile on my face.
