What is the difference between the USA Player Series and the Legacy Series amps?
Both are hand built in our California shop by our experienced crew using the same chassis, components and transformers. Components on our Legacy amps are connected with meticulous point-to-point solder joints. Identical components on the USA Player Series amps are through-hole mounted on a military grade circuit board. Still constructed by hand, the PCB construction offers time savings, build consistency and the ability to isolate grounding planes for reduced noise. This method of construction requires a different style of jacks, potentiometers and tube sockets, but no expense is spared. We use Cliff jacks, premium grade sealed pots and shock mounted ceramic tube sockets to maintain the same level of quality as our Legacy Series. All Bad Cat amps are housed in the same finger-joined cabinetry and equipped with our proprietary Bad Cat UK Celestion speaker.
Single channel blackface inspired amp with reverb, passive FX loop, and two foot-switchable K Master volumes for rhythm/lead output levels. The Classic Pro R may be ordered with a pair of 6V6 power tubes at 20 watts or a pair of 6L6 power tubes at 35 watts for an additional $50.00.
Classic American tone first introduced during the mid 60's with the added headroom and refined response afforded by custom hand wound transformers, premium components and short signal paths. Sparkling cleans with the ability to drive into smooth , harmonic rich overdrive. The patented K-Master circuit produces any gain level at any desired volume level. The Classic Pro R may operate on 6V6 or 6L6 power tubes (boas required).
Signature Bad Cat aesthetics include black tolex upholstery over 11 ply voidless Baltic birch finger-joined cabinetry on combos/ lightweight Italian poplar on headshells, gloss black metal corners, silver sparkle piping, variegated silver sparkle grill cloth (combo), hand stitched heavy leather handle, black phenolic chicken head knobs, and a backlit Bad Cat logo. Combos come loaded with the proprietary Bad Cat speaker produced by Celestion UK.
