Very nice modelling amp.
Irish Dar, 18.11.2020
Ive had this for several months now, and it is the product I expected.
I have not gigged with it, although with the addition of the pedal selector, no reason why you couldnt (other than how loud you need). With the pedal I can basically choose from four saved tones (and the panel).
I find it shines in the studio. There are a plethora of tones and styles can be achieved especially when hooked up to a laptop that combined with the presets provided, you can keep library upon library of your own saved sounds.
Pros
Great sound opportunities and inspiration. Great for studio.
Cons
All presets not easily accessed on the fly so might not suit all for live performance.

10/10
The Star Wars Cantina, 07.10.2020
I bought for my nephew who just started guitar. I heard good things about the Katanas over the past few years and even seen musicians play them in pubs which sounded great.

As a seasoned guitarist who uses higher end tube amps, I was honestly shocked when I played it myself how good it was.

The price of the amp is a steal. If you're starting out and need an amo, you're are crazy not to get one. It's hands down the best bang for buck solid state amp on the market. I only wish it was around when I was growing up.

Amazing amp!
Anomandaris, 06.11.2020
Decided to get this amp not too long ago as an upgrade over my starter Harley Benton HB20R. Seeing as it is still in the budget price range, I wasn't expecting a huge difference in quality, but wow was I surprised!

Pros:
- Amazing sound quality and tone
- Lot of features and effects, eliminates the need to purchase pedals
- Can regulate power input between 0.5W, 25W and 50W for different sound levels (I tend to stick to quieter sound since I practise at home, but I'd imagine this would work well on a stage at full power/volume)
- Sturdy but not heavy
- Can link with software on your computer for more effects
- Incredible value for the price

Cons:
- None

I fully recommend this amp, it's genuinely great!

Cannot reccomend highly enough
c_ob, 14.04.2020
Everything about this amp is amazing. It sounds great for the price, it has every feature and effect you could ever want with even more being unlocked when connected to a computer. It's easy and intuitive to use, can be very loud but also still good at low volumes due to the power control. It's a very versatile amp and can be used for anything from metal to blues to acoustic. I cannot reccomend it enough and it is 100% worth the money.
