Boss KTN-AIR Katana Air 30W Wireless Guitar Amp
Boss KTN-AIR Katana Air 30W Wireless Guitar Amp overview from GAK
Boss steps up and introduces the worlds first totally wireless guitar amplifier system. The Boss KTN-AIR Katana Air 30W Wireless Guitar Amp is the perfect amp for the mobile musician thanks to Boss' Low latency air-transmitter technology, allowing you to share your playing anywhere in the world, with no problems.
30 watts of power* inject life into this highly portable (2.2KG and 16 inches wide) wireless amplifier, perfect for the travelling guitarist, busker, street performance and practice.
The Air's unique custom wireless transmitter is compatible with any electric guitar and once plugged in, delivers a crystal clear sound signal with ultra-quick response thanks to Boss' refined low-latency technology. Always carry enough juice thanks to the 12 hours of available playing time when operating via its eight AA batteries, or infinite use via its AC input. The Air also shifts to standby-mode when no activity is detected, waking itself up via motion sensor technology in the transmitter. Smart.
Sound like a pro thanks to the Katana's Sound Engine that delivers a wide-range of pro amp tones and effects taken from Boss' signature range of amplifiers. 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'.
Pick your prefered tone and customise thanks to the Katana's onboard effects and a huge array of additional effects available via BOSS Tone Studio App. 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. Created something truly unique? Save your creation via the six onboard memory slots and quickly and easily recall them at your leisure.
Play along to your favourite tracks, vocals and backing tracks thanks to the Kata Air's Bluetooth streaming capabilities, or utilise the AUX in for connecting your wired devises. Make use of the headphones/recording out for solo practice and laying down guitar lines for your music production.

Very good practice amp that I also use for listening to music. Plenty of choices to choose from. As I am new to this, it is quite a bit to take in! Wireless part is working fine. Would recommend getting some decent rechargeable batteries. Pick up the guitar and play (poorly, but improving!)
This little amp is the future. Besides being great for recording big sounds (without needing a Marshall stack), the amp, built-in receiver and transmitter all work together totally wirelessly. perfect if you have to play outdoors or anywhere without a power supply and so many sounds, amp models and effects. Looking forward to using it. A lot!
worth every penny, their bluetooth app has a terrible connection fault. as you can see from the appalling reviews but hopefully they can sort that out. This amp though is fantastic.
Excellent quality from a portable machine and long battery life
Lovely. Excellent sound (can't believe something this small can sound so good), can be used as a speaker and as an audio interface and can be controlled from the mobile app. It's completely wireless, you leave it plugged in and when you're ready to play you pick the guitar and you're done. No cables, no problems. It is a little expensive but it's pretty much all you need to play and record at home. And you can EASILY bring it around. Feel like playing in the streets? Put some batteries in and you're done. Want to play it using headphones? Go for it, the sound will be exactly the same as you hear it from the speakers. Need to move to the other side of the world? Put it in your luggage, it fits and it's light. Couldn't be happier.
