VOX expands its popular series of Pathfinder amplifiers with the classically styled, Limited Edition Pathfinder 15 SMR (Super Mini Reverb) "mini stack." It features a 15 Watt head, a matching 2 x 10" vertical cabinet loaded with specially-voiced Celestion speakers, and a wealth of time-honored VOX tones.
Housed in a distinct head/cabinet configuration, the Pathfinder 15 SMR offers the same great feature set as the Pathfinder 15R, including controls for Gain, Volume, Treble and Bass. A Gain Boost switch increases preamp drive so the amp can deliver traditional VOX clean sounds as well as modern high gain distortion. The Pathfinder 15 SMR also features an analog Spring Reverb with Depth control, and Tremolo with Speed and Depth controls.
Other features include a Headphone output, a specially filtered Line out, and an External Speaker output. A footswitch jack is provided for connecting the optional VFS2 Dual Footswitch (which allows the player to independently switch the Gain Boost and Tremolo functions). The Pathfinder 15 SMR also boasts classic VOX styling with diamond grillcloth, basket-weave vinyl, and pointer style control knobs.
The Limited Edition VOX Pathfinder 15 SMR will be available in October 2002 with an MSRP of $399.00.
