BadCat Black Cat 30R Combo Amplifier

 Serial Number: 03490

 The two-channel beast that started it all. One of the original boutique amps, with versatility as it’s stock and trade. Two distinct channels with it lineage running all the way across the pond. British in flavor, American in construction. This is a no corners cut or apologies necessary tone machine. Built to be enjoyed for decades and passed down. Channel one is built on a 12AX7 treble, bass and Presence tone stack providing the warm and sweet tone with just the right amount of mid push to cut through the mix. Switch over to channel two and experience the more aggressive, hi-fi sounding EF86 preamp. More chime, more grunt. The EF86 can be switched between the five-way tone selector or the bass and treble tone stack. The tone selector offers a selection of five-tone caps and enables you to adjust the amount of low-end content to fit the guitar or situation. Global Presence and separate master volumes for each channel can be switched in or out.
