I've heard some complaints about this amp, and to be frank I've yet to see it. The volume is very loud, with the Gain/clean control volume wide open the master volume need not go past 12 o'clock before paint begins to peel. the tone is, when cranked very tube-y sounding and is very consistent with the top notch quality of the pathfinder series. the master volume allows you to achieve a great tube sound at low volumes by cranking the volume on the channel eq. The rear panel features a ext cab jack which when utilized with a 412 cab produces an unparalleled sound in that price range. With the vox name comes an unquestionable pedigree that can better tell you of the quality and durability of this amp than I could, but if given a single word, I would say Though. As fare as applications is concerned, I've used it for just about anything provided your willing to play with the eq a bit.
I have had this amp for a month now and Im loving it. It can over power the drums on clean. If that is not loud for you then you can plug in 30watt speakers in the back. One thing is dont try to use a distortion pedal. I tried a metal and a dod distortion pedal and it doesnt like them. The amp is about 50 pounds but its not that hard to move around. Bottom line this amp rocks and fits my needs.
This amp is a sweet deal. It looks cosmetically awesome and has a beautiful tone. The distortion channels are perfect overdrive 1 for your bluesy B.B. King sound and overdrive 2 for your more modern rock distortion. The problem i had with this amp is it lacks serious volume. I know many a folk have said "oh yeah its loud. " maybe if your playing in a church. I had to crank all volumes on full and still was lacking the volume. If your just a guy sitting in a bedroom playing for fun this is for you. If you are someone gigging and wanting to be heard I don't think this will fit the bill. At the very least I would strongly recommend trying one before buying one and do not go on the reviews and youtube videos alone. I did and was sadly disappointed.
I am shopping for an amp. I played this one today. This amp sounds very nice! The only reason I didn't buy it is because it doesn't have onboard tremolo or an effects loop. If those aren't a big deal to you, you should try out this amp.. The distortion sounded good. The clean channel sounded good. I also tried a Fender all-tube amp and this hybrid Vox blew it away.
This is the BEST 2010 amp by VOX ... 1. Price 2. Quality 3. Pedrigree 4. Tube & Solid-State Sound 5. Great Look Simple as it: BUY ONE !!
I love this amp it ia the best of both worlds great vintage clean sounds all the way up to heavy distortion and everything in between.This amp is very attractive to look at with it's classic Vox styling. It is also light and easy to carry. It has all the volumn that I need to gig with.Take my advice BUY ONE.
