Quick Overview

Brand new 2023 Bad Cat Black Cat 20W Tube Amplifier Head with Reverb and Tremolo, from authorized dealer The Axe Palace.

The lineage of the Black Cat goes all the way back to the original boutique amplifier designed and hand-crafted in Southern California. It was overbuilt and overspec’d, made to be the sonic successor to one of the most legendary and coveted amps from the early 1960s.

Now Bad Cat has gone back to the drawing board. The inspiration for the new Black Cat was to deliver on the original promise. We set out to capture all that is magical about the original designs but utilizing modern engineering and manufacturing advances to fit the needs of the modern player.

The new Black Cat features two unique channels with bias-modulated tremolo and studio quality reverb. Channel 1, a more traditional Black Cat sound, is bright and clear without being harsh.

Highly responsive and complex in midrange character, it delivers the sound you know and expect from this amplifier design. Channel 2 has all of the complexity and chime of channel one but with plenty of gain on tap, while preserving our signature string-to-string note definition.

The new Black Cat is subtle and beautiful - an achievement in timeless tone.
