Katana in Your Pocket
Compact, convenient, and loaded with tone, KATANA:GO is an essential companion for daily jams with your guitar or bass. This powerhouse headphone amp puts authentic sounds from the stage-class Katana amp series at your instrument's output jack, paired with a host of wireless music streaming, sound editing, and learning tools on your smartphone. Advanced spatial technology provides a rich 3D playing experience, while BOSS Tone Exchange offers an infinite sound library to explore any style. Whether you're a developing hobbyist or a pro keeping up your chops, KATANA:GO keeps you inspired everywhere you play.

Instant Satisfaction
KATANA:GO delivers premium sound for everyday playing without the hassle of amps, pedals, and computer interfaces. Simply plug it in, connect earbuds or headphones, call up a memory, and start rocking. Onboard controls provide access to volume, memory selection, and other essential functions, and you can easily view the current memory and tuner with the built-in display. The rechargeable battery provides up to five hours of continuous playing time, and the integrated 1/4-inch plug folds down to create a pocket-size package that's ready to travel anywhere.

Authentic Katana Tone
KATANA:GO drives your sessions with genuine sounds from the best-selling Katana stage amp series. Guitar mode features 10 unique amp characters, including clean, crunch, the high-gain BOSS Brown type, two characters optimized for acoustic/electric guitar, and more. There's also a dedicated bass mode with Vintage, Modern, and Flat types directly ported from the Katana Bass amplifiers. Each mode includes a massive library of BOSS effects to explore, with deep sound customization available in the companion BOSS Tone Studio app for iOS and Android.

Immersive Stage Sound
The innovative Stage Feel feature in KATANA:GO provides an immersive playing experience realized with advanced BOSS spatial technology. Presets allow you to position the amp and backing music in different places in the sound field, giving the impression of playing with a backline on stage or jamming in a room with friends. It's even possible to personalize the sound field with the intuitive tools in BOSS Tone Studio.

Limitless Inspiration
The guitar and bass modes in KATANA:GO each feature 30 memories that come loaded with ready-to-play sounds. Using BOSS Tone Studio, you can tweak the preset memories, create sounds from scratch, or import Tone Setting memories created with stage-class Katana guitar and bass amplifiers.

Instruments used Telecaster with bigsby Nylon string Steel string acoustic Haven't tried the blue tooth yet Haven't tried on bass guitar yet. I own the fender equivalent product. With no display offered. Both are good. If you are in the market I would choose the katana over the fender

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
