Manufacturer's Description from Bad Cat

Sometimes we build a custom amp for an artist that is so good that we want to offer it to everyone. The Luca is just that! The Luca has a simple single channel preamp based on the 12AX7 side of the Wild Cat. The Luca has a 40-watt EL34 based power section running in Class A.

The control panel consists of the classic Bad Cat preamp: volume, five-way selector, bass, treble, cut and a master volume that can be switched out of the circuit. The Luca is built on a 12AX7 platform with all of the thick articulate and punchy mid-range sweetness that goes with it. Think of it as an extended version of channel one of the Wild Cat. The Luca offers a switch between the five-way tone selector and the traditional bass and treble tone stack. A feature not found on the Wild Cat's channel one. The Luca was made custom for touring artists and was just so good we had to offer them to everyone.
