I agree! The Hotcat is without a doubt totally original to my ears. Kudos to Badcat!

Lots of cool amps here I have never tried. I would LOVE to line them all up and give them a go! :)

Soldano SLO 100.

Totally unique to my ears.......

I also have to mention the Kendrick line of amps. While his "original" Kendrick 2410 may have sounded like a fine old Fender Bassman, (I used to own one) the rest of line (to my ears anyway) seems to have a unique tone/vibe to them that I haven't heard in any other amps.

Diaz Club Classic 30 2 x 10

Umm... Whatever Albert King played. Acoustic "soiled-state" design? Cool in his hands. Yucky for anyone else.

Come to think of it - an Ampeg V-4 sounds pretty unique too!

Most Supros and Magnatones have their own thing going on as well.

My '63 Gibson Falcon is a 2-6V6 1-12" combo with reverb and trem, but it doesn't sound like most 6V6 amps I owned or heard...
I'm goin with the Falcon also.
