This is a fantastic offering from BadCat, created specifically for artists and then put into production based on demand. It is the 12ax7 preamp channel of the Black Cat/WildKat, with the (toggled on/off) 5-way rotary tone switch of the EF86 channel. The preamp feeds two EL34s vs the traditional EL84 of the BlackCat. It is a no-nonsense amp that sound fantastic by itself or with pedals in front. It just kind of takes it all and breathes fire on the other end. Huge bold cleans, tight bass and lots of good BadCat/Matchless/Vox chime. This one does have the basketball-sized power transformer like the older BadCats. I believe it is 2016.
Videos of the amp are in the BadCat link:
