Badcat Cougar 50 Head
Bad Cat announced a partnership with Hanser Music Group at Summer NAMM 2011. They're offering three new PCB-construction amps at more affordable price points than US-made Bad Cats. The Cougar 50 head ($999, shown) features two footswitchable channels and tube-driven reverb, and is powered by JJ EL34s. A 2x12 combo ($1299) is also available, in addition to the 5-watt Cougar 5 ($699), which features an EL84 tube, three knobs (Volume, Master, and Tone), and a Celestion Vintage 30.
