Designed and Built in Costa Mesa, California
At just over two decades, Bad Cat has packed a great deal of storied history in a relatively short span. And yet, we are only just getting started…
At Bad Cat, we are laying the foundations of a bold and exciting future of tone. The natural evolution of our company and products builds on our knowledge and reputation in guitar amplification. By continuously seeking innovation, we are inspired to design outstanding purpose-built products, allowing players to express themselves in their own, personal way. Naturally, all amps can be traced back to a handful of original designs- those pillars of tone we all hold sacred and true – but at Bad Cat, we have no interest in offering another spin on the past. We are constantly challenging ourselves to think differently, be creative, and broaden our horizons while always mindful of delivering extraordinary tone and unmatched customer service.
Each Bad Cat amplifier is thoughtfully designed to be incredibly flexible without the need for fussy design and overcrowded control panels. This results in an amp which offers the player the shortest route and an instant connection to tone, an amp that never gets in the way of creativity. When you experience a Bad Cat for the first time, you’ll notice clarity, tonal agility, dynamics, and balance. Players and artists choose our amps for our classic lines, dependability, playability, and most of all, the Bad Cat sound. Bad Cat amps are truly modern designs conceived with passion, realized through engineering.
Bad Cat is not a typical tube amp company, and our amps are designed to sound unique so that you can sound like yourself. We’re fiercely independent, prioritizing integrity in everything we do. We’re purpose driven and purpose built. We create locally but think globally. We respect the designs of the past but are future focused. Our goal is simple: Continue to design and build beautiful amps that give you everything you need and nothing you don’t.
Thank you for playing Bad Cat. We’re glad you’re in the den.
