BOSS Katana-100-212 - 100W 2x12 Combo Amplifier for Electric Guitar
Key Features
  • 100W of Power
  • Two Custom-Designed 12" Speakers
  • Five Distinct Amplifier Characters
  • 61 Effects Accessible via Tone Central
Providing gig-ready rock tones while minimizing your reliance on a pedalboard, the Katana-100-212 Combo Amplifier from BOSS provides 100W of power and features two custom-designed 12" speakers, making it quite suitable for large venues. The amp gives you access to 61 BOSS effects via BOSS's Tone Central. Using a USB connection, you can port any 15 effects into the amplifier at any one time, with three separate effects available for simultaneous usage. Once you select among these effects—as well as among five different onboard amp characteristics and EQ/presence controls—you can store your tone into one of four recallable Tone Setting memories. In this manner, you can easily change your tonal array onstage without a complicated tap dance routine.

Turn your attention to the rear of the amplifier head and you'll notice quite a few connective possibilities, such as a headphones/recording output that provides the ability to direct your sound to headphones and recording devices with a minimal amount of maneuvering. Additionally, a line out jack allows you to route line-level signal to mixers and PAs. An effects loop affords you the opportunity to use outboard gear, and an auxiliary input jack lets you play audio from compatible players through the amplifier.

But wait, there's more! For external control, there are two different footswitch inputs, one for channel selection/expression pedals, and one specifically tailored to the all-encompassing GA-FC foot controller.

Five Distinct Amp Characters

The Katana offers five amp characters with tones ranging from organic vintage to modern high gain; Clean is natural and transparent, Crunch offers a small amount of grit, Lead has a wide gain range to suit many styles, Brown delivers a refined high-gain tone, and the Acoustic character provides a tonality geared toward acoustic/electric guitars

Pedalboard Sounds without the Pedalboard

Via BOSS's Tone Central, you can choose from 61 effects—the Katana Version 3 update brings the Roland DC-30 Analog Chorus-Echo, the BOSS GE-10 Graphic Equalizer, and the 95E pedal wah—to load 15 different modules into the amp at any one time, using three of them simultaneously; eight 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

Extensive Footswitching Possibilities

External control of specific parameters is possible with an input for optional footswitches and expression pedals, as well as a dedicated input for the GA-FC foot controller

Intuitive Operation

Dedicated knobs for multiple gain stages, the three-band EQ, and presence control allow you to dial in tones by ear, just as you would with a standard tube amp; essential effects parameters are adjusted with a simple knob twist, and Tone Setting memories can be stored with a brief button hold

Power Control

A Power Control selector lets you reduce wattage, allowing you to lower the volume for small stages and home-playing without sacrificing tone

Connection Options

You can send a simultaneous direct feed to PAs, mixers, and recording interfaces via the headphone/recording output, while the line out provides the mic'd up tone of the Katana-100-212 in all of its power, fullness, and dynamics; a dedicated effects loop can also be utilized to loop in outboard gear

Computer Connectivity

You can send mix-ready, true stereo sound with Katana's effects to your DAW via the USB port, recording directly to your computer without having to take an analog DI

Tone Central & Tone Studio

The Katana-100-212 gives you access to Tone Central and Tone Studio; Tone Central provides a plethora of free amp and effect setups created by seasoned professionals and downloadable by you, while Tone Studio gives you a convenient way to organize your Katana presets for different gigs, recordings, and practice sessions
