Vox introduces Pathfinder 10 bass amp
(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-01-15)
Vox amplifiers first leapt into the public consciousness in 1963 when the Beatles began appearing onstage with them, and the legendary AC30 Vox guitar combo amp was an important component of the Fab Four's studio sound. They continue to be a favorite of guitarists and, with their diamond grillecloth, are instantly recognizable.
At Winter NAMM 2010, Vox introduced the Pathfinder Bass 10, a 10-watt amp that should be perfect for solo practice situations or even an all-acoustic set.
From its grille cloth to the vintage chicken-head knobs, the Pathfinder Bass 10 carries the unique Vox look in a compact package that uses pushing a pair of 5-inch Vox Bulldog speakers, rather than a single 10" speaker, for a powerful bass sound. Controls include Volume, Bass and Treble and a Bright switch that adds an edgy boost to the upper harmonics. Turning up the Drive control provides a modern, warm bass distortion. A headphone/line output jack is also provided for silent practice and for direct recording.
VOX Pathfinder Bass 10 Specifications:
• Dimensions (W x D x H): 14.98" x 6.69" x 10.91", including projections (380 mm x 170 mm x 277 mm)
• Weight: 2.54 lbs (5.6 kg)
The VOX Pathfinder Bass 10 will be available in February 2010 with a U.S. MSRP of $150.
