Manufacturer's Description from Bad Cat

This is the Bad Cat take on the famous 5E3 tweed style circuit that came out of California in the 1950’s. Simple, yet very versatile. Dime the volume 
and roll back your guitar volume for sweet cleans that spank and bounce.Even with double coils the Classic Cat provides plenty of twang. Push up your 
volume and discover why so many great albums were recorded with tweed amps. Crunch tones with tons of sweet sustain. 
At a conservative 20 watts it works well in a live stage setting. just enough power to get over a drummer. It is amazing what can be 
had from the pairing of a well designed circuit and a simple volume knob. Whether it be Blues,country or 
classic rock this is amp is well suited to not only deliver but to excel. 
Available with or without reverb.
