Sharing the lineage and design of the award winning Hot Cat 30, only in a 15 watts, club friendly platform. Two channels running into a dual EL84, Class A power section. Channel 1, the cleans are 3-D lush and chime. When pushed the cleans are full and punch through with a healthy dose of thick crunch. Full, round and tight with humbuckers. Sweet with plenty of sparkle and grind with single coils. Very touch sensitive.

Channel 2 is high gain and dripping with complex mids and tight lows. Full with amazing amounts of note definition. Ninth's come out with upper harmonics resting above the fundamentals. This is an amazing class A high gain circuit.
