The Storm and the Silence
What makes a great modern high gain amp? This is what was contemplated when Bad Cat set about redesigning the Lynx. Modern high gain players need tight low frequency that punches and reacts quickly to staccato palm muting. They need high frequencies that cut without being harsh or grainy. They need effective midrange shaping with complexity and articulation. They need crushing gain without the noise. The result is the new Bad Cat Lynx.
The new Lynx has two distinct channels. Channel 1 is classic high gain which covers gritty and crunchy cleans to 80’s thrash metal tones. Channel 2 is an ultra modern high gain voice that has a massive sonic footprint yet remains articulate and revealing. Further, it has been reengineered with a Lo/Hi switch to access a new type of gain stage architecture not yet found in any other amplifier from Bad Cat. The Lynx is loaded with percussive, heavy, tight saturation and incredible string to-string note articulation. Lastly, a highly effective, uniquely designed noise gate (patent applied for) is included along with a buffered active effects loop to run all of your pedals transparently.
From the beginning, the new Lynx was designed to be special and unlike anything else.
