The Abasi Pathos presents an impassioned appeal to the varied sonic needs of the modern guitarist. Designed to retain the feel of an American-style tube amp channel, its versatility is derived from the “smooth” and “edge” voicings that range from an emotive crunch all the way to scorching, yet controlled distortion and sustain. The two voicings can be sculpted with a set of musically-tuned EQ shelves and mid control, as well as potent gain and level controls.
It is these precision tools that allow Pathos to encompass the functionality of several dirt boxes in one – be it a push to a driven amp, a full-on distortion channel in front of a clean amp, or a boost in front of a digital modeler. Crafted in the USA by Tosin Abasi in conjunction with Brian Wampler, Pathos is the choice for any discerning guitarist seeking an array of distortion flavors to emote their musical story.
