Over the last decade, almost every manufacturer tried their hand at producing a multi-effects guitar amp. Of all the options on the market, one of the most popular was the Boss Katana series. But as good as the Katana amps are, technology evolves, and allows manufacturers to produce better amps every year. To ensure that the Katana series maintains its rightful place in the music industry, Boss has revamped the range and launched the Katana MkII series.
The Katana MkII still has everything you came to love about the orginal but has supercharged it, allowing the amp to reach new heights. The core platform now offers more sounds, effects, and features.
You will now find new voice variations for all five amps, in essence doubling your tonal options.
Even More Effects
One of the most significant updates to the amp is that instead of having three effects types, you’ve now got access to five. That means that you can use five effects at once! And be honest with yourself – how often will most players need more than five simultaneous effects?
Best of all, you can edit and tweak the effects in the Boss editor app. Now you can take full control over your tone!
Easy to Use
We’ve all been there. We buy a new toy, take it home, then spend the next few days with a manual, YouTube, and digging around trying to figure out how the thing works.
With the Katana, everything is more intuitive than ever before. With12 knobs and 12 buttons which are all clearly labelled and sorted into sections, even someone who is technologically challenged won’t struggle to dial in the “perfect” tone.
