Bad Cat

Description

The Bad Cat Hot Cat 30R 30W tube guitar amp head is designed with one thing in mind — high-gain British-style tone. This Player Series head is a two-channel amp with two EL34’s being driven in Class A cathode bias to produce 30 watts of power.

Channel one is a simple Volume, Bass, Treble, Reverb, and K Master. The cleans on this amp are clear and sparkling and ring out with a clarity that comes from our custom hand-wound transformers. Channel one will go from crystal clear sparkle to rich, complex overdrive and all stops in between. The patented K Master circuit provide extraordinary clean headroom and rich high gain saturation at whisper volumes.

Channel two has a simple layout of Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble, Reverb, and K-Master. A global presence knob that cuts across both channels to smooth out any high transients. The gain is soaked in rich harmonics with astounding string-to-string note definition even in high gain settings. There is a reason this amplifier is the choice of countless touring professionals.
