The first impression is that Katana is a light portable amp with good looks! Really nice appearance! As for the weight, it is not pleasant to carry the amp, guitar and efx/pedals for some distance and then have to play a gig decently! Katana is easy to carry. The cardboard package is good and secures the amp, the manual is clear and helpful. Turning on the amp takes 1-2 secs due to self check routine, a lot like digital multiefx units. A very useful switch selects four modes , standby, 1/2W, 50 and full 100 watts. really useful in many circumstances. The sounds are good, the effects are useful. I have some reservations about the wah, but this is a personal opinion. The interface is simple and storing is easy. You can use a common latching footswitch to do A/B for Ch1 and Ch2, but you have to pay some 100 euros for the whole footswitch that controlls all 4 channels, efx, and so on... Also the amp is really loud! The amp also plays great when you connect your multiefx to RETURN and use it as a power amp and speaker. The back side has a lot of useful connections, ins and outs. Boss seems to have thought almost everything. I say 'almost' because, at this price range, and given the know-how of Boss, they DEFINITELY had to include a tuner and a noise gate. The tuner option would cost an unsignificant amount to the company. Also, when you advertise the amp in a hard-rocking context, like the promo video, you should give the player the noise gate option. Overall, it is a remarkable amp and a serious offer from an important name in the guitar industry!
This amp is everything that you want from a solid state combo. I researched it quite well before buying it since it is my first one. And the hype is definitely true. People are not overselling it enough. Because this really is a 10/10 amp. There is not much more the add what was not added in the other reviews across the internets. What would I wish for is at least five slots for the effects so that you can have at least five running and a balanced xlr out-put, but this is super extreme nitpicking since this would be trying to improve perfection. Not for the price, in general for solid state.Killer.
