BOSS Katana-50 overview

  • 1Description

The B&H Katana-50 Guitar Amplifier and Single Footswitch Kit is a solid-state combo amp and one-button footswitch designed to provide expressive and versatile tones along with essential hands-free switching functions for guitarists on stage, at rehearsal, and in the studio. It includes the Katana-50 12" 50W guitar amp, a one-button, latch-style footswitch, and two 1/4" instrument cables.

The amp boasts 58 BOSS effects—customizable via USB, five custom-tuned amp characters, and eight Tone Setting memories, which allow instant recall of channel and effects configurations. Utilize the aux input to jam along with your favorite tunes from a mobile device. Connect the 1/4" output to your headphones, a mixer, or an audio interface. Switch between the first two channels via the latch-style footswitch.


  • BOSS Katana-50 - 50W 1x12 Combo Amplifier for Electric Guitar

    Designed to provide you with gig-ready rock tones while minimizing your reliance on a pedalboard, the Katana-50 Combo Amplifier from BOSS delivers 50W into a 1x12" speaker cabinet, making it suitable for use in small venues and practicing at home. The amp gives you access to 58 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 character types and EQ controls—you can store your tone into one of two recallable Tone Settings 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 chassis and you'll notice a headphones/recording output, giving you the ability to direct your sound to headphones and recording devices with a minimal amount of maneuvering. An auxiliary input jack lets you play audio from compatible players through the amplifier. A footswitch input allows you to select between the two Tone Settings channels or to implement an expression pedal without turning your back on the audience. In addition, a built-in tilt stand allows you to angle the amp for monitoring or simply adjust the direction of sound projection.

    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 58 effects to load 15 different modules into the amp at any one time, using three of them simultaneously; two 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
    Footswitching Possibilities
    External control is possible with an input for an optional footswitch and expression pedal
    Intuitive Operation
    Dedicated knobs for multiple gain stages and the three-band EQ 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 home-playing without sacrificing tone
    Computer Connectivity
    You can send mix-ready sound 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 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
