What We Think

The Hot Cat is Sound Pure's personal favorite amp in the Bad Cat line!  This is a true rocker of an amp!  30 watts is just enough for the majority of gigs from small to mid-size venues and even some larger (mic it up!)

The Black Ostrich covering is beyond cool and the light-up logo really makes this a serious stage attraction.  But it's so much more than just good lookin!

Plenty of EQ options to shape your custom tone. Throw that half power switch on for a 15 watt amp! Essential feature for me, personally. It really growls at lower wattage!

High grade components are what make these Bad Cat amps sound amazing!

Manufacturer's Description from Bad Cat

The Hottest of all Cats

The concept and function of the Hot Cat is new, unique, and unlike any model ever produced by Bad Cat. The 12AX7 based pre-amp affords some overdrive loading if desired via the clean input, as well as sweep control of the clearly emphasized overdrive high gain input.
