Bad Cat Amps Black Cat 30R Handwired 30-Watt 1x12 Guitar Amp Combo w/ Reverb


Manufacturer's Description

Dripping in three dimensional cleans, the amazing tone and feel of Bad Cat can be found in the Black Cat 30R. Push up the gain and go from soft chiming break- up, on through to thick complex gain. Running in Class A, this rig is oozing with harmonics.

Channel one is built on a 12AX7 treble, bass and cut 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 cut and separate master volumes for each channel can be switched in or out. Available with or without reverb.
