A Lot of Amplifier for Not Much Money

GraemeSPa, 07.12.2017
After seeing so many positive on line reviews about this amp, I had no problems in joining the Katana owner's club. I have used 50 watt valve 2x12 combos for years but I have aged to a point where lugging one around is getting difficult. This little Katana has every feature I need in a gigging amplifier - it can go from acoustic to AC/DC and has all the effects I need. I can go minimalist now - my acoustic, my Strat and my amp - and I can get every sound on my setlist. The new version 2 software doubles up the saved channel features and access to the huge range of digital Boss is like the kid in the candy shop being handed the keys to the front door. The 12" speaker moves a lot more air than other small amps and 50 watts is way loud enough for my needs. The ability to switch down to half power and practice power without losing tone is a great feature to. The dual function effects knobs are unusual, but you can set up the required effects and store them as a channel patch. ...and it is so light to carry around!
I've owned Marshall & Blackstar 2x12 combos - both great amplifiers but they cannot compete with the sound to weight ratio of the Katana. This is the lightest and most versatile amplifier I have owned - and for under 200 euros, you get a lot of amplifier for your money.

Katana 50

Erky32, 05.09.2017
Almost Five stars all round, but a small amount of room for improvement (- perfection takes a little bit more time & developement!). This amp sounds amazing, after a lifetime of valve & solidstate amps - this one has absolutely captures the sound for my style - classic rock/blues. Its a big volume valve sounding amp with all the effects you need built in. Its very small, light weight and sounds big, at a low price,with all the dynamics of a true valve amp, I can't praise it enough! It's out of the box , power on, and the sounds are there - no knob twiddling or searching for "that" sound!
.....so why 4 star for features.?
1. Needs "off" switch for effects, ...also I dont like the double function rotary knobs.
2. I'm a bit disappointed with the acoustic channel which was a strong reason for buying it, it doesnt pull the true acoustic thru like other (low priced) solid state dedicated acoustic amps can, - it's OK , but only ok.
3. No tuner
4. No ext. speaker socket.
....the above would be nice to add, but hey, the amp is brilliant, so good that I've returned it to Thomann and am awaiting the delivery of its replacement - a Katana100 head as a main gigging amp!
Maybe some of my misgivings could be tweeked in the USB/software, but I havent found appropriate possibilities yet.
I'm looking forward to the 100-head now!
