Boss Katana Artist 100W Guitar Amplifier overview by 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 Katana-Artist is a 100-watt combo amp with dedicated acoustic preamp and outstanding custom Waza 12-inch speaker built by hand, all encased within BOSS'
Meticulously crafted with a close eye on the 25W British stack speakers of the 1960's, the Waza Craft Speaker is the result of BOSS' careful examination of several speakers, spanning several eras, and is undoubtedly the stand-out feature of this amplifier. Built from the ground up with advanced technology, the folks at BOSS meticulously analysed no less than 26 different elements of its construction right down to microscopic fibres and glue, to create a speaker with a classic sound but refined, modern performance. Experience full tone and wide dynamic range resulting in a first class vintage rock sound.
The Katana-Artist caters to pro players thanks to its enhanced controls including dedicated cabinet resonance control, customising the dynamic interaction between the output section and speaker. Allowing the user to tame the amp for different environments. Additionally, its Katana range characters have been specifically fine-tuned to provide the absolute best sound through the Waza speaker and new cabinet design.
As with all amps in the Katana range, the Katana Artist model offers up five original amp characters, however, these have been finely tuned specifically for the Katana's flagship model.Experience a crystal clear natural 'Clean' or inject some overdrive with 'Crunch' and experience satisfying grit and response. Utilise a wide gain range to suit many musical styles with 'Lead', hit up 'Brown' to emulate the driving high-gain of the Boss Waza amp and pair your electro-acoustic beautifully on 'Acoustic'.
Explore the vast sonic potential of the Artists' built-in BOSS effects, or connect the amp via USB to BOSS Tone Studio for access to 58 effects including delays, ring mods, distortion and many more, all fully customisable!
