Very good amp
TipoC, 10.05.2020
Very well made amp, top quality.
The sound of the clean channels is awesome. It's what I was looking for because I use a lot of pedals and it takes them very well. Love the sound.
I use it with single coils and with humbuckers

I don't like too much the dirty channels, they are okay but not awesome. You can work with them if you don't have good distorsion and overdrive pedals. Same with the booster effects, some of them sound good but in general I don't like much the sounds. I'm sure you can find good distorted sounds if you spend hours with the Tone Studio software but it's not worth it for me. I will use pedals most of the time.
The best dirty channel for me is the Lead. Crunch is ok. Brown I don't like much.

That said, the amp is amazing, I love it.
The modulation/fx effects, delay and reverb sound good, and as I already said the clean channels are amazing and take very well effect pedals.
And also important you can change whatever you want with the Tone Studio software.

Very happy with my Katana. I totally recommend it.

ridiculous value for money
rickross, 07.08.2020
this amplifier is seriously worth every penny. I was reluctant to buy this as I love my fender Blues Junior and Vox ac 15, both being valve amps.
I thought I'd never appreciate a solid state amp but after hearing them at live shows and using my friends Katana i was blown away with the quality and sound and had to get one. Ive now had it for a little over a year, pre corona virus I have gigged with it and no complaints at all. Its the perfect home studio amp with its power control options you can set what wattage you need for your surroundings which is a vital feature for a home studio... I find the tone setting one of the most important features because you have 4 chanels where you can save the EQ, effects amd ampliefier settings to each chanel so when you come back to it its not lost if you found the perfect sound! so handy

I find the Pros of this amp are the four chanel selections that you can save for your own personal tones and sounds.

four different amp types all having a different variation and an additional acoustic amp which sounds absolutely brilliant

the ease of use

CONS

it would be nice if BOSS supplied a foot switch and a cover, other than that its a must have for any music enthusiast, session musician, home studio, gigging musician

Thomann as usual provided amazing efficient service and had the amp sent to me in very short time which was an added bonus

Amazing Amp for an upgrade!
Wiplash101, 08.03.2020
This amp is so versatile and simplistic. I was deciding between Line 6 and Boss Katana but preferred the Katana MkII because it has straight forward and simplistic features with amazing sound.
I use it with a Boss ME80 and I appreciate the fact that the effects and features don't come in the way. Though, you can download Boss Tone Studio for editing FX and loading patches.

Pros:
Basic and straight forward effects and interface
High quality sound
0,5W, 50W and 100W power switch
Very light and versatile

Cons:
(For some) Basic and straight forward effects and interface

I recently played on a Peavey Vypyr but I got so frustrated with all the different effects, amp sims, presets and EQ.

This amp is a workhorse for the simplistic player who wants an amp that can do the job no matter what.

Can't be Happier
Tuncy, 07.05.2020
It's a nice amp, with lots of features. I cannot be happier with it :))

First of all, Tone Studio makes it super easy to create a tone. Also, you can simply download other presets from the internet.

Recording friendly! If you dont have a sound card, you can use the USB interface and record directly to your computer. Otherwise, record output works nicely, and emulates the speaker so you dont have to mess with the settings. I use it with my focusrite scarlett and works fine.

Its good for home use as a practice amp at 0.25 watts, but it shines when you crank it up to the 100W mode.

Send and return functionality is awesome, makes it possible to use with a loop pedal.

I look forward to add a foot-switch and an expression pedal. Fantastic amp.
