Boss Katana 100 KTN-100/212 100W 2x12 overview from GAK
Named aptly after the precision made Japanese sword, the Boss Katana Amp Series pairs unique tones and amp characters with fully customizable effects and storable tone settings. A versatile amp that allows you to take full control of your rock sound.
The Boss Katana 100 KTN-100/212 100W 2x12 Combo delivers its refined rock tones through two custom made 12-inch speakers powered by 100 watts of unrelenting power. Harnessed via an intuitive power control and scaling function, the Katana can acquire maximum tone and dynamic response even at lower volumes, making it ideal for the practise room as well as stage.
Play through five various amp styles that completely transform your sound, from a crystal clear 'Clean' to a 'Crunch' offering up a small amount of overdrive and breakup. Punch through the noise with higher gain via 'Lead', emulate the driving high-gain of the Japanese Boss Waza amp with 'Brown' and pair your electro-acoustic beautifully on 'Acoustic'. Notably, the Katana also offers a highly dynamic interaction between output and speaker, shapable thanks to a resonance function taken directly from BOSS's flagship 'Waza' amplifiers.
Take your chosen character and delve deep into customisation thanks to the Katana's onboard effects and a huge array of additional effects available via BOSS Tone Studio.Connect the amp to your computer via USB, browse through a large collection of effects and simply save as a preset. Up to three effects can be run simultaneously, experiment with various drives, reverbs, ring mods, delays, phasers and more to invent your own unique sound setting you apart from the rest.
