BOSS Katana 50 MkII Guitar Combo
The latest version of our best selling amplifier
The BOSS Katana 50 MkII is the latest incarnation of the hugely popular 50 watt, 1x12" guitar combo. BOSS have turbo charged its core platform with more sounds, more effects and more features!
This MkII version pickups up form where the original version left off, with 5 primary amp characters; Clean, Crunch, Lead, Brown, and Acoustic (for acoustic-electric guitars). Clean brings natural and transparent tones, Crunch gives added grit, Lead will take you from blues solos to searing rock leads, Brown is derived from the Waza amp, great for high-gain tone and finally Acoustic is optimized for electro acoustic guitars. The tonal options have now been extended, with each of the 5 primary amp voices featuring newly voiced variations, fundamentally now giving you a total or 10 amp characters (double the amount on the previous generation).
Utilizing BOSS's Tube Logic approach, the Katana 50 MkII is able to produce the authentic tone of genuine tube amps, with the tube like feel and sound changing and becoming richer as the volume increases. The handy Power Control allow you to achieve that cranked amp tone and response at super low volumes, great for home use.
BOSS have also improved the effects section, now giving you 5 simultaneous effects categories. The 5 independent sections Booster, Mod,, FX, Delay, and Reverb come ready with 3 variations in each, a total of 15 ready to play effects. Connect to the BOSS Tone Studio and you can delve much deeper, customising the sections with over 60 different effect types, with access to changing the order of the chains and more! Once you have you amp character set and selected your effects setup you can store your custom setup one of the Tone Settings for instant recall.
If you have a favourite preamp or multi-effects unit the Katana 50 MkII can also function as a standalone powered cabinet. Simply connect to the rear panel Power Amp jack, which will bypass the amps own preamp and effects, whilst still letting you tap into the Tube Logic power section.
Other features include the USB and phones/recording outputs which feature mic'd cabinet emulation, allowing you to send amp ready tones straight to your DAW or headphones. There is also rear panel connections for a footswich and an AUX in.
BOSS really hit the ground running with the first generation Katana amps, and now, with these improved and updated MkII models, things get even better!
