I gig with a Peavey Delta Blues which can easily be run unmic'd at the 100-150 capacity bars we often play. I also own a Vox Pathfinder R and was wondering if this would be an acceptable backup just in case my big tube amp takes a crap in the middle of a gig. These places don't LIKE to mic guitars but would probably do so in a pinch. If not the PF, I'll pick up a Pro Jr. which I'm pretty sure will do the trick un-mic'd even. As you know, they can be had for less than $250. Our band is moderately loud and plays classic rock covers.
