Boss has announced three new models in the best-selling lineup of Katana guitar amplifiers. The Katana-50 MkII EX combo is an expanded version of the entry-level Katana-50 MkII, offering enhanced performance features derived from higher-end Katana models. The added GA-FC and GA-FC EX support allows you to select Tone Setting memories, turn effects on/off, and more with their dedicated foot controllers. There's also a line output for sending mix-ready tone to a house PA, plus the ability to link a second Katana MkII amp with the Stereo Expand feature.
The Katana-Artist MkII Head provides the premium sound and features of the flagship Katana-Artist MkII combo in a powerful 100- watt amplifier head. Five unique amp characters and five variations provide 10 different tone options, while five simultaneous effects categories put the sound-shaping power of a massive pedalboard inside the amp. And with BOSS Tone Studio, users can customize the onboard effects with over 60 different types and dive deep into internal parameters to craft their personal sound.
The Katana Cabinet 212 Waza is precisely tuned to support the massive range of the Katana-Artist MkII Head. This robust cab features a 2x12 configuration loaded with custom Waza speakers, delivering sought-after rock tones inspired by the benchmark British stack speakers from the 1960s. Two cabinets can be stacked to create a clean 4x12 setup, and the versatile design features a removable panel for closed-back or open-back operation.
