Bad Cat Hot Cat 30R · Guitar Amp

Bad Cat has adopted the classic, British Class A combos of the 1960s, and has raised the characteristic circuit to a new level. The Hot Cat 30R is a Class A Combo with 2 channels (Clean and Hot). The well-known problem with Class A Amps is the enormous volume that is generated when the amp is driven into saturation. Bad Cat, the brilliant K-Master circuit has been evolved in order to deal with this phenomenon without loss of sound. The K master is not a conventional mastervolume - in this circuit variant the master has influence on the voltage, the current strength, the gain and the signal amplitude. The result is a rich, natural sound even at moderate volume.

Bad Cat Hot Cat
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 a 5-way tone selector, enabling the ability to tailor the amp to bright single coils or thick warm double coils. They've 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 70's 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.
