More Versatile Than Ever
Since their initial release a few short years ago, the BOSS Katana lineup has established itself as the go-to modeling amplifier for aspiring pro's, hobbyists, and relative beginners the world over.
The Katana MKII builds upon the core tones of its predecessor to deliver a combo amp that truly soars far beyond its price class.
Five Amps, Ten Tones!
Whether you want to hear organic-sounding, vintage tube tones, something a little more modern and high-gain, or even a dedicated voice optimised for acoustics, the five primary amp characters on the Katana can take you there.
These characters have now been extended with all-new voice variations, giving you an even wider palette of tones with which to paint your sonic landscape.
Five EFfects At Once
Another upgrade for the Katana MKII is the ability to now run a massive FIVE (yes, 5) effects categories at the same time, essentially giving you a decent-sized on-board pedalboard to play with.
With 15 ready-to-play effects to choose from, and the ability to connect up to the BOSS Tone Studio for even more options, this amp is ready-made to help you customise your perfect sound, for any situation.
BOSS Tube Logic
For that full-throttle, authentic tube-amp sound, BOSS have included their incredible Tube Logic technology in the Katana MKII.
This technology delivers the kind of authentic tube overdrive and distortion tones and characteristics we all know and love, but thanks to the amp's variable Power Control it can deliver those sweet spots even and bedroom volume levels!
Amplify Your External Gear
Whilst the Katana 50 MKII is superb as a standalone, practice-ready amp, you can also use it as a powered cabinet for your favourite preamp, modeler or multi-fx unit!
Simply connect to the rear-panel Power Amp In jack, and the MKII's preamp is bypassed, allowing you to tap straight into the Tube Logic power section, complete with Power Control function!
Custom Setup One-Touch Recall
Thanks to the inclusion of Tone Setting memories on the Katana MKII, you can recall your favourite amp and effects setups with ease.
Simply dial in your preferred sound with the panel controls, then save it to the desired memory with a quick button hold, and away you go!
The Katana MKII allows you to save 4 Tone Settings (two banks of 2), and you can quickly recall them again via the panel, or through using external foot controllers.
Ready-To-Mix Direct Tones
With Line, USB, and phone/recording outputs at your disposal, the Katana MKII can be directly connected up to any PA System, DAW, or headphones.
This sound can be shaped with three different Air Feel settings via the BOSS Tone Studio, and as two-channel USB operation is supported, you can track in true stero with many of Katana's on-board effects.
BOSS Tone Studio Enhancements
The release of the Katana MKII also sees the evolution of BOSS Tone Studio.
With an updated interface, faster workflow, and dedicated Pedal FX category, editing, storing, sharing, and downloading new setups for your Katana has never been easier.
If you already own a BOSS Katana, it's worth noting that Tone Studio will allow you to import your custom patches into the MKII with ease!
