Bad Cat Hot Cat 30 Reverb Combo Amp
The Bad Cat Hot Cat is now at BLOWOUT PRICING! (non K-Master volume models)
The Hot Cat was recognized as by Guitar Player Magazine as one of the best amplifiers ever made and multiple amps in the "Hot Cat" series have received awards. If Bad Cat has a flagship amplifier, this would be it!
For 2014, Bad Cat has made a few tweaks to the dual channel Hot Cat circuit that are sure to improve your experience! They've now have incorporated Bass and Treble controls into the clean channel to give you even more flexibility, as well as simplifying the Bass, Mid, and Treble Tone stacks on the Gain channel. Bad cat also added LED lights to indicate channel selection and each channel will now have their own Reverb controls (only on on reverb models, of course).
Channel 1's cleans are lush, and chimey. When pushed, the cleans are full and punch through with a healthy dose of thick crunch. Full, round and tight with humbuckers. Sweet with plenty of sparkle and grind with single coils. The Hot Cat series are very touch sensitive with plenty of dynamics depending on your pick attack.
Channel 2 is higher gain and picks up where Channel 1 leaves off. You can go from a pushed, bluesy overdrive to all out high-gain. This channel drips with complex mids and tight lows. Even with the higher amounts of saturation the chords retain surprising amounts of note definition. Ninth's come out with upper harmonics resting above the fundamentals.
The Hot Cat covers everything you would expect from an award winning high gain amp. From sparkly cleans to thick heavy gain, this amp has it all.
