Bad Cat Amplifiers
Since 2000, Bad Cat has been blowing the minds of tube amp enthusiasts the world over. Based in Irvin, California, their team strives their hardest to ensure every combo, cabinet and head that leaves their factory is a solidly-built workhorse that sounds as remarkable as it looks. Each model is hand-wired with hand-dipped gold plated connectors and feature custom Celestion speakers with Baltic Birch cabinets. This stunning attention to quality and detail has made Bad Cat amps extremely popular on today's music scene, and their current roster includes top-recording artists like Arctic Monkeys, Goo Goo Dolls, Keith Urban and Muse. With names like that, you better believe you're in for a treat when you plug into a Bad Cat amplifier.
With all this in mind, the only thing you need to consider is whether or not you want a combo or a stack, and that will depend entirely on your own preferences. If you're a guitarist who wants a combo model that's preferred by countless arena acts, you'll love the Black Cat 30w 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp. The 12AX7 side provides a sweet and complex mid-range and can easily take this amp from punchy cleans to a ferocious growl. Additionally, the EF86, when pushed lightly, can fill any venue with hypnotizing harmonics and haunting octaves.
Now, if it's a head that you're on the prowl for, turn your attention to the Hot Cat 15w Guitar Amp Head with Reverb. Similar in design to the award-winning Hot Cat 30, this 15-watt version gives you the same exceptional tone as that model but at a volume that's more fitting for smaller-sized clubs. Boasting two channels that run into a dual EL84, Class-A power section, the Hot Cat 15w can go from lush 3-D cleans to thick crunch effortlessly. As for cabinets, check out the 4x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet. Loaded with four 12" proprietary Bad Cat Celestion speakers and constructed of 13-ply Baltic birch, this cab sounds killer when paired with any Bad Cat head.
And to say your choices don't end there would be a vast understatement. Bad Cat's selection of amps is jam-packed with options and every single model is worthy of your attention. No doubt - once you crank up a Bad Cat amplifier, it will quickly become apparent to you why they're so popular.
