hey guys! So I've been looking lately at the Bad Cat Hot Cat 30- I really want to pick up a 2x12 because you can do so much with that amp it seems. Bad Cat's site claims "veritable Class A tone encyclopedia with tones ranging from chimey jangle to full-on distortion all enveloped in a sea of harmonic richness". I played it briefly and I could tell there were some great tones in there, you just need to spend some time dialing in. The linked channels, interactive EQ, and amount of Gain channel options excite me...just wanted to get some thoughts/comments from my favorite gear hounds. I'm not a fan of "fizzy" rectifier gain, I really like amps like the jcm800 and my Shiva that respond to picking and excel at medium gain. What my only complaint about the Shiva is is that I can't get a chimey overdrive...it's a dark amp. If you're looking to compare it to something, I already own a Bogner Shiva (EL-34) and my standard touring guitars are an LP Standard and a Standard Tele. Thanks guys!
