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.
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"
£1300 - Price Drop £1200 price drop £1100
Trade-wise I would consider am heads Black Cat head. Guitars, Gibson SG, telecasters ....... try me.
Also testing the waters to see if there are any potential buyers for my Suhr Badger bought new last August.
Condition is practically mint comes with fab Suhr cover and footswich for Mosfet boost.
Fantastic amp and the power scaling is brilliant, but I'm really missing a having two channels.
Would be looking for around £1700.
Can post, but would be for buyer to arrange and pay carriage/insurance of their choice
