2) Carefully remove the two screws in line with the knobs that are all that is holding the chassis to the cabinet.

Post by littlericky » Fri Mar 04, 2016 4:18 am I've done a few Pathfinders but they've all been in custom cabinets so I cant help you with the 8" speaker, I used 12's or 2x10's in the builds.
I just draped a Sennheiser e906 directly on my Pathfinder and plugged in my Daisy Rock with both pickups on, tone rolled a third of the way or so.

Why I don’t spend the holidays with anyone who isn’t family by my own choice. Then I fixed the tone stack with correct values for a big muff tone stack. Sounds sweet.

I had one for a while, but I didn't get the same impression that everyone else seems to get out of these amps.

Sounds pretty dam good for such a cheap amp! He said other mods hadn’t impressed him so much. If I play soft it cleans up, if I dig in it growls. The board is masked, so the solder shouldn’t bridge to another trace, but try to keep it tidy just in case. The ever popular LED mod for the solid-state Vox Pathfinder amps, now sadly discontinued.

I guess that's true of the amp regardless.

I like the distortion and don't really need the extra volume.

I was disappointed after hearing all the hype.

Re: Vox Pathfinder 15R Mods?

Here's a quick clip of the post-LED mod Pathfinder 15R. I hate the song but I remember watching the video because I thought the chick from the Cardigan's is/was hot. 4) See the two little screws roughly on line above the speaker wires? by Soselo » Thu Mar 03, 2016 8:52 pm, Post

The PF has a fixed resistor for the mids.

... A tele would get an Ed Bickert tone quite easily through the 15r. cab. You can post now and register later. All rights reserved.

So he stared at the schematic and came up with one! Picked up a mint 15r IIstumbled on for $55 and came with vox f/switch for trem & boost!

1:01-1:50 Bridge The former because I'd used the same chip to replace a TL072 on the Fender 15R and I got a "better" crunch from that swap.

The original is a 1/8 watt carbon film by the look of it.

I have a 15R. Re: Vox Pathfinder 15r Mods... « Reply #1 on: May 06, 2018, 06:07:03 PM » i know this is a paleolitic thread but I really want to see the results and other mods you made.

Then I cleaned up the old solder with the handy desoldering braid.

It doesn't do that with an ext. I did the LED mod and honestly, compared to a stock Pathfinder, I didn't notice enough of an improvement. This thing in stock form is a fizzy trebly mess. But I had myself convinced that I needed a tube amp. http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/TF0818MR. Just ‘cause I asked if he knew of one. This will be my first time working on an amp. I believe at least some Vietnamese-built Pathfinders have the same PCB layout, but “measure twice, cut once.”. VOX Pathfinder V9158 Rebuild and Modifications : 1999 VOX PATHFINDER 15. What I did was take my soldering iron and a desoldering braid to the solder side and applied pressure and heat first to the left and then the right two leads, melting and wicking off the solder. It really couldn't compete with Pathfinder in terms of good versatile tone. I wish I could tear into this one.

I just finished playing what passes for jazz when I play it. If you have an account, sign in now to post with your account.

0:00-0:36 Neck . The problem with this pedal is all the capacitors are way too small and filter out every trace of bass and low mids. It's a different circuit. I’ve been trying to learn about actual circuit design so I didn’t want to just add a bunch of toggle switches or extra pots.

By Swapped the 4558s out for 5532s but that didn't help the noise floor problem.

I had a Pathfinder that went up in smoke, so I remade it into a 5F1 in a Vox cab. Best I could do with my 1K resistor stash was 970 ohm, which works fine.

I decided it I like it just the way it is instead. It adds a good bit of volume adn the amp breaks up later and just a little smoother. I bought this amplifier new in 1999 to pair with a 12-string Seagull acoustic guitar.

I thought I did, and then I plugged in the stock Pathfinder as well, then it sounded just fine on its own.

If I have it maxed out, it's very noisy. by littlericky » Thu Mar 03, 2016 8:42 pm, Post

After reading everything here I found one for about $50 and loved it...so did my wife.

4) Solder it in.

Reassembly is no surprise once you’ve taken the amp apart. Truly great amps! If I plug in my combo into it, I get to use the new spring reverb! I also have a Logan Custom Challenger with humbuckers.

I currently play through a Vox Pathfinder 15R with a MIM Strat and have been wondering what kind of amp this is. For Japan and other countries with 100 VAC mains, Vox installed a power transformer with a 100VAC primary, p/n 057-VFJ.
Or should I just do the Electra Distortion and Bazz Fuss? I probably could have saved myself a little cash and wasted time had I just picked one of those up in the beginning. :].

I don't have an experience enough ear to really tell the benefits of the op-amp swap. Cheapest and easiest mod was to slap a 3/4" piece of pine on the back to close it up and give it some warm and compressed-sounding bass.

Definitely more of a "fuzz" than "distortion. I don't know the answer to your question, but am interested to find out, as the non-reverb models are a lot easier (and cheaper) to find than the reverb models.

I eventually do want an Orange Dark Terror, though. Scroll down a little in this thread & there are pictures of the wee spring reverb unit in the Pathfinder, http://www.shortscale.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=879352&sid=724b9f492fc3f368196dc50daaa196a6, It has a very dynamic break up.

Honestly, I don't like the idea of using a 10" speaker in there. No guarantees that yours will have the same board layout, though others seem to, including some Vietnamese made amps.). Thanks! This is comparing 12" to 12".

You can still get some decent amp dirt without them, and better, you can enjoy more of the character of your guitars and pedals into the amp.   Your link has been automatically embedded.

Total mensch move. But I feel like it has a lot more to offer than what the stock version spits out. Page 1 ... with a very slight touch of hair on it, the Pathfinder 15r can definately do it, either stock, but especially with the mods. Do the LED mod, too, since I’ve not encountered anyone who didn’t prefer the amp after that mod.
