The Boss Katana MKII - Improving On A World Class Amplifier!
In October 2019 the team at Boss unveiled the new range of Katana MKII (MK2) amps. These new Katana MK2 versions were redesigned from the ground up to provide players with more sonic choices, more amp sounds and more control over their amp. The Boss Katana MKII amps have 5 extra amp sounds as well as a range of features for the discerning amplifier geeks like us!
You can read more about the differences between Boss Katana MK1 and MK2 HERE, but overall, the key feature of the new Katana MKII is the variation buttons on top of the original amp sounds. This effectively gives you 10 amp sounds in 1 amplifier. You have dual effects pots, a new editor and the ability to control your sound via the GA-FC Foot controller when using the Katana-100/212, Katana-100 and Katana Head, and that's just a small example of what these Boss Katana MK2 amps can do.
