The BOSS Nextone Artist combo guitar amplifier combines classic tube sound and feel with next-generation tonal diversity. Using four Class AB analog power amp designs, Nextone gives you access to the tube tones you've come to know and love: 6V6, 6L6, EL84, and EL34. In combination with the Tube Logic circuitry, each power amp type re-voices the entire amplifier circuit from input to output, giving you the sonic experience of these signature power stages in one amp.
Tube Logic technology produces real tube sound by reproducing the complex behavior of tube amps in every way. It unlocks access to deep tone customization features that are impossible with traditional tube designs and puts the response characteristics of the most famous amp designs at your fingertips.
The Nextone Editor lets you plunge deep into your sound customization, fine-tuning internal settings to match your individual style and touch. Tube Logic gives you the ability to enjoy all the great sound and response of your favorite tube designs without the weight and maintenance of a tube amp.
The Nextone Artist guitar amp lets you re-voice your amp to choose the sound you want, whether it is from an American guitar amp or a British stack. American sounds are represented with 6V6 and 6L6 output tube types, while British sounds are represented with EL84 and EL34 types. Unlike modeling amps, the BOSS Nextone Artist combo guitar amplifier physically changes the complete output circuitry, as well as the way the preamp and speaker interact with it. This makes the entire amp perform authentically at each setting, providing the realism that’s only possible with the advanced Tube Logic technology.
Using Tube Logic technology, the Nextone Artist combo amp delivers the complex distortion characteristics of output tubes and their interaction with other amplifier components to provide you with a rich and dynamic warm tube tone, without having to turn your volume up to ten!

With a quick button press, you can switch your amp into a custom mode, which provides factory-tweaked variations of the standard clean and lead channels. Built-in effects include delay, reverb, and tremolo effects, and you can also use the Nextone Editor to tweak the effects to your liking. There's also an effects loop available for you to connect your outboard gear.
Other features include a line out for sending a direct signal to a PA, a phones/recording output, external speaker jacks, and a USB connector. The optional GA-FC foot controller provides channel selection, tone, boost, effects, pedal volume, and more. If you need to travel light, up to three FS-series footswitches can be used to control various functions.
The BOSS Nextone Artist combo guitar amplifier is truly a versatile amp providing you with a warm tube tone and substantial savings in dollars and pounds! Add it to the cart and get yours on its way.
