What We Think

20 Watts and a 6V6 power section would normally scream Deluxe Reverb but this amp is much different. The Classic Cat R delivers a much more forward voicing than a Fender with good clean headroom.  If you dime the amp you can certainly get some nice smooth overdrive. Controlling that with your volume knob, this amp makes a great blues amp for club gigs. The operation is very simple, three knobs, two inputs. Nice and easy to use.

Manufacturer's Description from Bad Cat

The Classic Cat is all about simplicity and yet delivers rich, clean complex tone with amazing dynamic response all within two knobs. The Tone Control obtains a spectrum which has a more uniform sound that will allow you to adjust the frequency response achieving a more natural result. Whether you are using humbuckers or single coils, by using the amp?s volume, you guitar?s volume control and your pick attack, you can get varying degrees of clean to smooth overdriven sounds.
