I’ve personally never been a huge Les Paul guy myself opting for a telecaster or super strat of some type when I needed humbuckers… but I get it. That tone is unique and very addicting. In walks in the Friedman Metro D and I am hooked!
Lightweight, resonant, great feel and the TONE! Don’t sleep on these!

A quick iPhone clip of Joe Sprunt with the all new Bad Cat USA Player Series from NAMM 2019!
In 2001 Bad Cat innovation led to the design of the Hot Cat 30, the worlds first Class A, high gain amplifier. Less than a year later the amp received the Guitar Player Magazine Editor’s Pick Award. In 2004, Guitar Player Magazine recognized the amp as one of the ten best combo amps ever made. The honor was presented at the Summer NAMM Nashville show.
Now the engineers at Bad Cat are bringing the Hot Cat 30R into our USA Player Series. Not content with just transferring the hand-wired legacy design over to a PCB format. Out engineering team set out to redefine the amp design and make sonic improvement as well as increase the versatility of the clean channel.
The Hot Cat 30R is a two channel amp with two EL34’s being driven in Class A cathode bias to produce 30 watts of power.
Channel one is a simple Volume, Bass, Treble, Reverb, and K Master. The cleans on this amp are clear and sparkling and ring out with a clarity that comes from our custom hand-wound transformers. Channel one will go from crystal clear sparkle to rich complex overdrive and all stops in between. The patented K Master circuit provide extraordinary clean headroom and rich high gain saturation at whisper volumes.
Channel two has a simple layout of Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble , Reverb, and K-Master. A global presence knob that cuts across both channels to smooth out any high transients. The gain is soaked in rich harmonics with astounding string-to-string note definition even in high gain settings. There is a reason this amplifier is the choice of countless touring professional.
