Product Description

With the Bad Cat Hot Cat Guitar Amplifier Head, you can shred with the best of them. This award-winning guitar amp head was introduced in 2005 to great acclaim, and with every subtle refinement since then, its industry-honored status has remained. Now, 20 years later, Bad Cat has taken everything they know and applied it to a cutting-edge reimaging of the Hot Cat, creating the perfect tool for guitarists at any level. Get ready to elevate your playing and start rocking with the new Bad Cat Hot Cat – you won’t be sorry.

Channel 1 features the signature Bad Cat sparkling clean tone with brilliant highs and abundant lows. Channel 2 is a flame throwing high-gain channel with extraordinary string-to-string note definition and rich harmonic content. We added a Lo/Hi selectable gain switch allowing Channel 1 to offer huge amounts of clean headroom or drive into 70’s-like crunch tones and everything between. In Channel 2, you can now toggle between two distinct flavors of gain from crunchy blues to metal. The gain combinations on the new Hot Cat are virtually limitless.

Also new to the Hot Cat is studio quality reverb, custom-tuned to work flawlessly with each channel. Additionally, we have added a completely transparent, buffered effects loop that will work with both digital and analog effects. The new two-button footswitch allows toggling between channels and the Lo/Hi gain mode settings, offering four distinct tones all from one footswitch.
