Video: First Look at the New Bad Cat Paw—A Boutique, Desktop Tube Amp | NAMM 2020

The name of the game is portability and ease when it comes to Bad Cat's newly unveiled Paw—a boutique desktop amp that promises to sound sweet wherever and however you choose to play it. In the video above, Joe Shadid takes a look (and a listen).

As the John from Bad Cat explained, this small tube amp was inspired by an amp the company put out called the 50 50, which is a tube amp that feeds a stereo class D. This new Paw is "kind of like a Tube Kemper," in that it gives players the ability to do pretty much anything, including loading in and using digital IRs. John even mentions the company working on something that wold allow for players to easily trade IRs with one another.

As you can hear in the video, the little guy really sounds stellar, and we love the fact that it's so versatile—use it as a practice amp in your bedroom or apartment, recording direct using your best digital IRs, or even put it on stage and drive a cab (or even multiple cabs, in stereo) through it for maximum power. Whatever you choose, you can't really lose.

See the full video above to hear a little demo and stay tuned for more coming soon on pricing and availability. For more news from the NAMM convention, click the orange banner below.
