Played a couple of PRS's through a Bad Cat "Hot Cat 30" this weekend. What an amp. Great tones - high fidelity - is the best way that I can describe it. Incredible cleans nice overdrive and singing sustain - some nice crunch, too. My favorite PRS was a 20th anniversary Custom 22. It sounded great through a Mesa Boogie triple recto, as well.

Anyone have about $5500 I can borrow?

JJEMMER777 - I knew that someone would come back at me with that! I have now finished my residency and am faced with $132,000 in student loans, also with 8 years (while in college and med school) of lost income. They paid me about 40K yearly for three years of residency.

I'll accept cash, checks, change, food stamps...

The Hot Cat 30 is a SWEET amp. I've actually considered trading my Matchless in for one, but just can't bring myself to do it. Certainly on my "must have eventually" list though :)

Funny, a Matchless amp is on my "mus have eventually" list :lol: I already use the Matchless model on my Flextone II for most of my lead stuff.

The Hot Cat 30 is based on the Matchless Chieftain - it's just got a few extra goodies (gain stages, etc.) Mark Sampson helped Bad Cat get started - Rick Perotta is still in charge of the production part of the company. Basically, Bad Cat is as much of a Matchless spin-off as you can get :)

That's funny... I was using the Matchless model on my GT-8 for alot of my leads as well. I don't see a "Bad Cat" model. The store also had an Alessandro Blue Tick - gonna have to go back and try that one as well.
