Bad Cat Amps – Hot Cat 30 Watt

CLICK HERE TO SEE OUR ENTIRE SELECTION OF BAD CAT AMPS

Here's a nice little of vid of Aerosmith's Brad Whitford playing the Bad Cat Hot Cat 30R. Some call this little 30 watt bad boy the "baddest" member of the Bad Cat Arsenal, and just from this rough demo you can get a pretty good sense of why.

Former Matchless ace designer Mark Sampson brings to Bad Cat his history of creating rich sounding amps with lots of clean headroom and character. This all-tube, duel EL34 combo is perfectly suited for players looking to capture a range of classic vintage
sounds with modern fidelity.

This amp is built with the characteristically excellent craftsmanship Bad Cat and Sampson are known for, featuring hand-crafted, all-tube grade A circuitry and wiring, steel chassis, thirteen ply cabinet made of Birch and a specially customized 12" Celestion speaker. The Hot Cat's panel features 2 inputs (one for clean and one for high gain) and controls for volume, master volume, level, gain, treble, bass and brilliance. Around back, you have an output for an external speaker and a switch to change from tube to solid state rectifier. The amp does not come with reverb.

The idea for the Bad Cat was to deliver a class A single channel amp that serves up a wider tonal pallete by duplicating two channel functionality. Each input runs into the pre-amp at different stages and can be controlled via an A-B foot switch. The other option is to link the inputs allowing loading of the preamp through the clean input and sweep-control of the overdrive off the gain input. Being able to swtich between solid state and tube rectifier stages allows for additional tonal variation.
