This amp is hands down the best amp I’ve owned and it’s not even close. For a practice amp I had a little 20 watt Fender Mustang 1 and it sounded decent enough for the price and for regular rock but I love playing metal. And this amp has the tone I need, I’m after a deeper for crunchy tone that sounds great in drop tunings for more modern metal. This amp NAILS it. You’ll pay double for triple trying to match its sound, which I’m sure some people do because they may not think of BOSS as being a go to when it comes to amps. Don’t be them, save your money. It has over 60 BOSS effect pedals and TONS of other features on their app. I mean the savings on the pedals alone is worth it. Last I’ll say is that it also has excellent clean channels. Not that tin/hollow sound it’s a nice full clean tone. And you can switch to “crunch” channel for a little break up for some blues jam outs. 100% would recommend. To me, this is the best practice or jam amp in the market within $600 of this price atleast.

the best amp I’ve ever owned hands down. Out of the box the tone is great for most styles but i found if you really want to unlock its full potential you need to hook it up to a computer and run boss tone central . It’s emulated output is far superior to an old fashioned line out. It’s compact and light so transport is a breeze . For such a small amp it sure is loud .

Great amp. Effects, build and modelling is top notch. Sounds easily as good as my tube amp. The bonus is no maintenance, swapping tubes etc...and you have tons of quality effects at your disposal. Highly recommend

This is a masterpiece of a amp. The loads of Boss effects alone is all you’ll need. Straight out the box, you can’t go wrong.

I was looking for a decent combo amp for a while and had decided on the Boss Katana right when they released the Mk2. I had played the MK1 in store and was super pleased with it so figured I’d wait for the Mk2 to hit stores. In the mean time I rented a Line 6 spider V 60watt so I Atleast had something to use while I waited. I picked up the Mk2 finally and boy does this thing make the line 6 seem like a toy when it comes to the tones that come out of it. Super easy to dial in great sounds from the 12” speaker and boy is it loud! I haven’t tried out the computer software but I am more than pleased. The aesthetics and build quality all seem great to top it all off. If you’re looking for a great amp that doesn’t break the bank this is the one.
