Vox Pathfinder 10 - Solid State Guitar Amp
Gearank High Notes
- July 2021: Highest Rated Guitar Amp Under $100
The Vox Pathfinder is the cheapest way to get that trademark Vox chime in a portable package.
This amp is meant to be minimalistic, no digital amp modeling or effects, just basic 2-band EQ, gain, volume controls and two channels that you access via the Overdrive / Clean button.
There are times where you just want an amp for a particular tone or purpose, and that is exactly what the Pathfinder 10 gives you, a plug-and-play compact alternative to big Vox amps.

Many smaller amps don’t retain the tone of their namesakes, instead they sound weak and uninspired overall, thankfully, this isn’t the case for the Vox Pathfinder 10. Reviewers appreciate how the Pathfinder 10 gets the Vox chime down with its portable profile. It also helps that it looks more like a classic Vox amp, which many appreciate.
Being a one-trick-pony, this is not for those who like to play with voicing and effects right on the amp. Some feel that the volume is a bit lacking for a 10W amp.
If you're a fan of Vox, or you're into British style tones, then this is the perfect portable amp for you.
