Fantastic amp and incredibly versatile. Had a new reverb tank fitted last summer after discovering it did not work, I never use reverb so did not realise until testing for selling, also had the V1 valve replaced mid November (2018) and got my tech to check over the amp to make sure all was in good working order. Only been played a few times in the last two years usually for testing when up for sale (see above )
Both channels are highly usable and it's capable of many sounds and styles from shimmering chimy clean to massive high gain, some describe the sound as 3D.
Comes with original foot-switch which also gives an option to have both channels on simultaneously.
Has a cover but it is a little short as it was made to a Black Cat specs (shown on photo)
Built like a tank in 2004
I wrote to Bad Cat for information they got back to me with:
"That is an older Hotcat with an active tube driven effects loop. Later the controls were added to the back. My guess is that is the first one with a loop, its a custom 2004. Prob January and prob built for someone who requested these additions"
Trade wise not sure would consider quality amp heads or guitars (esp P-90)
