OVERVIEW

Big Cat boutique tone in a club-friendly size.

Sharing the lineage and design of the award-winning Hot Cat 30, only in a 15W, club-friendly platform. It features two channels running into a dual EL84, Class-A power section. Channel 1, the cleans are 3-D lush and chime. When pushed, the cleans are full and punch through with a healthy dose of thick crunch. It sounds full, round and tight with humbuckers, and sweet with plenty of sparkle and grind with single coils. Very touch sensitive.

Channel 2 is high gain and dripping with complex mids and tight lows. Full with amazing amounts of note definition. Ninth's come out with upper harmonics resting above the fundamentals. This is an amazing high-gain circuit.

    Comments about Bad Cat Hot Cat 15W Guitar Amp Head:

    owning a Cub IIR, i was hoping the Clean channel on the Hot Cat would be similar but a different flavor. I barely had the Volume up to 9 'o clock when the breakup started. There just wasn't enough clean headroom for cleaner sounds.
    But this amp shines in the Drive Dept.
    I actually preferred the sounds of the Clean channel cranked more than the Gain channel.
    For some reason, the Gain channel sounded like it had very little play in the controls--Not typical of other Bad Cats i've played.

    all in all, it's a nice amp; just not to my liking.
