Bad Cat Lynx 50w Head

Bad Cat Lynx 50w Head: Precision High-Gain Mastery

The Bad Cat Lynx 50w Head is engineered to fulfill the rigorous demands of modern high-gain playing. With an emphasis on tight low frequencies and responsive dynamics, this amplifier is designed to react instantly to staccato palm muting while delivering high frequencies that are clear and cutting, yet smooth. The midrange is effectively shaped to provide complexity and articulation, and the amp achieves blistering gain without unwanted noise, ensuring a pristine and powerful sonic experience.

Innovative Gain and Versatile Controls

The Lynx stands out with its two distinct channels and an impressive seven gain stages, introducing a Lo/Hi gain switch that offers new possibilities in gain stage topology, unmatched by other amplifiers. This feature allows for extensive tonal exploration, from clean, shimmering tones to aggressive, saturated distortions. Each channel is equipped with independent gain and volume controls, allowing for precise sonic sculpting.

Robust Build and Thoughtful Design

Designed and hand-built in Southern California, the Lynx features custom hand-wound Bad Cat transformers and a sturdy Baltic Birch cabinet, ensuring durability and exceptional sound quality. The amplifier’s design is not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing, fitting well in both studio and live settings. The built-in adjustable noise gate and buffered FX loop provide additional control and integration with various effects setups.

Connectivity and Specifications

Catering to a wide array of setup configurations, the Lynx offers individual speaker outputs with options ranging from 4 to 16 ohms, including dual configurations. A line out feature adds further versatility, ideal for direct recording or sending signal to additional amplification. The amplifier also comes equipped with a two-button footswitch, enhancing live performance flexibility.
