NAD;- Vox Pathfinder 15R

Post by Sollophonic on Fri Dec 07, 2012 4:41 pm

Listened to all the happy talk about these, and always held back a bit, as I wasn't sure.

Figured that I would only get one if it was a good price, and was safe in the knowledge that the cabinet, chassis and speaker would serve as a base for a tube amp build if it sounded awful.

Well I chanced upon a B Stock one at a good price, and it arrived just before a rehearsal.

So I played it with this rig, virtually out of the box.



In a word, WOW!!! How could a solid state amp with an 8" speaker give this full a tone against a drummer, bassist, vocals and two horns?

Well, it did.

Blown away by this little amp, I can tell you.

Sounds good with my Westones too.

The VOX's are outstanding amps, in virtually all configurations from solid state to hybrid to all tube. At the shop, we carry a lot of different models along side the big Marshalls and they don't take a back seat to any of them.

I use a tiny 5 watt VOX DA5 "practice" amp in my music room and it's so good I had enough confidence in it to use it in a live performance with another guitar and bass! Great score.

I used a DA 5 live once. I couldn't lift heavy stuff at the time so I did a gig with a Gibson Melody Maker and a DA5 lined out into the PA.

Did really well, under the circumstances.
