BOSS has introduced the Katana amp series, a new lineup of guitar amplifiers with refined rock tones and built-in BOSS effects. Gaining significance of the acclaimed Waza amplifier, the Katana series embodies BOSS’s determined pursuit of the dynamic rock sound. Offering class-defying tone, touch response and presence, Katana amps are ideal for gigging guitarists and also for recording and practice at home.

Katana, the traditional sword carried by the historic samurai of Japan, is a symbol of honor, precision and artistry in Japanese culture. Featuring proprietary circuit designs and meticulous tuning, the Katana series combines traditional craftsmanship and advance functions to produce next-generation rock amplifiers.

The Katana lineup consists of three combo amplifiers and an amplifier head. The 50-watt Katana-50 and 100-watt Katana-100 are each equipped with a custom 12-inch speaker. The Katana-100/212 has 100 watts of power and is equipped with two custom 12-inch speakers. The 100-watt Katana-Head is designed for use with an external speaker cabinet such as the Waza Amp Cabinet 412, but includes a convenient integrated monitor speaker for listening to your tone before the PA starts to have an effect.

Each Katana amp features five selectable amp characters: Clean, Crunch, Lead, Brown and Acoustic. Deriving its essence from the Waza amp, the Brown character delivers refined high-gain tone and is desired by many of the world’s renowned rock players.

With the powerful Tone Settings feature in the Katana amps, players can store amp and effects settings to recall efficiently tweaked setups instantly. It’s also possible to connect optional footswitches and expression pedals for hands-free control. The Katana-Head supports control via MIDI as well.

While the Katana amps include many advanced features, they also offer intuitive interfaces that allow players to dial in sounds quickly. An innovative Power Control function lets users achieve cranked-up tones at low volumes which act as a great benefit for playing on small stages and practicing at home.

BOSS had also introduced the Boss Tone Studio software last year for Mac and PC. It is a powerful modelling tool which allows the user to fine tune their sounds for a respective Boss device. With every new product to take advantage of this software, Boss have improved and streamlined the Tone Studio. Boss’s Tone Central hub allows users to download and use one another’s tones effectively.
