Bad Cat has debuted its new Paw desktop amplifier.

The Paw features an all-tube preamp - one EF86 and two 12AX7s - a 60W Class D power amp, a pair of six-inch speakers, a pair of direct outputs and two FX loops. The Paw can also drive up to two external speakers.

Additionally, the amp comes loaded with the company's unique K-Master control, which provides full output regardless of whether the preamp is driven or not, giving guitarists an ultra-wide dynamic range.

The Paw also offers the ability to load and save impulse responses, with 16 included in the amp, and a USB input to connect to your Mac or PC.

The Bad Cat Paw desktop guitar amplifier can be preordered now for $799.
