Bad Cat Amplifier was founded in 2000 with the singular purpose of building fine guitar tube amplifiers, better than the classics from the golden age. Old school build techniques would be used with assembly, finish, and testing dependent on practiced hands. There would be no compromise in features, material or performance. They take a no compromise approach when designing and producing amplifiers. Bad Cat's goal in each classic style - hand built amplifier, is to achieve great tone and sturdy construction. Bad Cat Amplifiers are designed and built entirely in Southern California.
