OVERVIEW

A new and improved high-grain flagship model with amazing tone.

A little over 10 years ago, Bad Cat created the world's first Class-A high-gain amplifier. Less than a year later, the amp received the Editor's Pick Award. And in 2004, Guitar Player Magazine recognized the amp with a 2nd place, Best Combo ever made! The honor was presented at the Summer NAMM Nashville show.

Bad Cat has once again defined and refined the best. New for this year is the Hot Cat 30 and 30R. Both are built into the same 17", 16-gauge steel chassis. If Bad Cat has a flagship, this is it.

They started with one of the nicest most touch responsive clean channel ever designed and added our 5-way tone selector, enabling the ability to tailor the amp to bright single coils or thick warm double coils. Bad Cat added a master volume that can be engaged and utilized to drive channel one into all shades from clean to soft pushed overdrive and beyond. The little secret that loyal users of the Hot Cat have known for years is that the clean channel crunches like the sounds found on vintage '70s vinyl. Channel two is a pure Class A EL34 high gain. The same sweet harmonically rich gain only now with an added mid-range knob to help you dial into a rich scooped thump.

This amp covers everything from clean sparkle to harmonically rich saturation.

      Comments about Bad Cat Hot Cat 30W Guitar Amp Head with Reverb:

      This was the final stop (so far) in a long search for an amp that has amazing cleans while having killer overdrive, all in 1 amp. I was using a headswitcher with an orange thunderverb for overdrives and a dumble SSS clone for cleans. This amp replaces that whole complicated system and sound ridiculously good!
