I don't know the Pathfinder, but the Roland Cube 30 and Microcube are not just "solid state" amps--their circuits include amp modeling as well.  I own the Microcube, and it has a half-dozen modeled amps and preamps in it.

Good amp modeling can certainly make a solid state circuit sound like something else (and much better for harp).
