The Boss KTN100 MKII combo amp is built for guitarists who are serious about their tone! With 100 watts of power and a custom 12-inch speaker, the Katana-100 delivers a commanding range of tones that can slice through any bands instrumentation.
It has exceptional tone and touch response for the gig, and with the five selectable amp characters, the Katana 100 produces class-defying power and expressiveness to meet any playing situation.
The Katana-100’s five amp types offer everything from organic vintage tones to modern high-gain sounds. Clean is natural and transparent, while Crunch offers satisfying grit and response. Lead has a wide gain range to suit many styles, from fat, stinging blues solos to fluid legato shredding.
With DNA inherited from the Waza amp, Brown delivers refined high-gain tone sought after by the world’s greatest rock players. The Acoustic character further enhances the Katana’s versatility, providing an optimized tone that makes acoustic-electric guitars sound stunningly natural.
With its built-in BOSS effects and ability to recall Tone Settings, the Katana-100 lets you perform anywhere with just a guitar and amp. Connecting to BOSS Tone Studio via USB provides access to 55 effects that are fully adaptable to your needs. Going beyond standard distortion, delay, and reverb, the selection also includes powerful tone-shapers like pitch shifting, ring mod, slicer, and more.
You can load 15 different effects in the amp at one time and use up to three simultaneously. Four Tone Settings let you store custom amp and effects setups for instant recall, and you can always jump to the current panel settings at the touch of a button. It’s also possible to connect optional footswitches and expression pedals for hands-free control on the gig.
While the Katana-100 includes many advanced features, it’s simple to operate. Dedicated knobs for multiple gain stages, three-band EQ, and presence allow you to quickly dial in your tone by ear, just as you would with a standard tube amp. Essential effects parameters are adjusted with a simple knob twist, and memories can be stored with a brief button hold.
The Power Control is great for throttling back the volume for small stages and home playing, and also includes a Standby setting that mutes the sound for switching guitars or taking breaks. And by flipping out the integrated tilt stand, you can easily angle the amp back for better sound projection.
At the BOSS TONE CENTRAL website, you’ll find numerous free amp and effects setups for the Katana series created by professional guitarists. These setups provide ready-to-play sounds for various music styles and make great starting points for building your own sounds.
The setups load into the Katana memory via the BOSS Tone Studio editor software. In addition to Katana's effects selection and customization, BOSS Tone Studio gives you a convenient way to organize all your Katana setups for different gigs, recordings, and practice sessions.
