Well, these two amps are what its come down to for me, after lots and lots of playing them both in the shops over the past few weeks, i like both, but ive never found a shop with both, which of course i never expected, so ive never heard them side by side to compare. What to choose? I like a great clean sound and just use overdrive, nothing particularly hot, I use single coils 99% of the time. The feature of the LS I like the most is the 5w switch, very useful, the Bad Cat is much louder but has such a classy clean/break up tone, and takes my pedals so well, but a part of thinks that the LS is a great versatile amp that would suit any musical situation, and it too is classy. Both amps seem pretty dissimilar to me in terms of features, but have great cleans. any thoughts guys? Both amps make my current 3 amps seem completely inept, so i'm very excited.
