With so many combo amps on the market today, the decision of which amp to use can be a tough one. However, when you want an amp that lives up to the highest standards, Bad Cat makes the choice that much easier. Devoted to boutique craftsmanship, Bad Cat combo guitar amplifiers are built and wired by hand to deliver the sort of meticulous build quality you would find in the most sought-after vintage amps. Bad Cat was founded in 2000 as a company run by musicians, for musicians. Fully embracing the unmatched tone of tubes, every amp they make is focused on impressive sound, dependability and all-out excellence. That unrelentingly high standard has not only won Bad Cat a number of awards, it's also landed their amps onstage with a "who's who" list of artists including Panic at the Disco, Stone Sour, Slipknot, Maroon 5, the Goo Goo Dolls and the Dixie Chicks.
Powerful tube-heavy sound comes in a variety of shapes and sizes with Bad Cat, so you can find a combo amp that's just right for your needs. If you're looking for a low-powered amp for recording or to play smaller venues, the Cougar 5 is a good place to start. This amp will surprise you with how ferocious its 5 watts can sound through the 12" Celestion Vintage 30 driver. For something more mid-ranged to hit the stage a little harder, you've got a whole range of 15W-30W choices in the Black Cat, Hot Cat and Cub III lineups. These amps also sport Celestion speakers, with different tubes giving each series a unique tonal character.
If you want lots of power, clean headroom and amazing rock tones, then take a look at the Cougar 50 as well. This 50W combo amp offers footswitch-friendly channels and reverb, along with the adjustments to make your tone as rough or as smooth as you like. The Cougar 50 is stuffed with three 12AX7 preamp tubes and two EL34 power tubes, giving it the warm vintage sound to compete with any classic amp.
The only thing left to say is "what are you waiting for?" Start rocking your own Bad Cat combo guitar amp and it won't take you long to understand why they've racked up seven Editor's Pick Awards from Guitar Player Magazine. These are simply some of the best combo amps you can own - period.
