Had it for 4 weeks now, tinkered around with the tone studio also. I find this amp mid/trebley. Harsh/flat and grainy sounding also. I've used different guitars through it, Ibanez with Duncans, 1980 Hagstrom, Peavey Vandenberg Sig, Squire vintage strat. I want to like this amp, maybe I need to tinker a lot more with it. I do like the crunch channel. Have a Zoom G2.1u that I used with my Marshall that I'm going to try with it. May have better luck.

Je viens de recevoir cette semaine cet appareil. J'en ai encore la mâchoire décrochée. Il sonne extrêmement bien au tant avec guitare électrique q'en mode acoustique. Je voulais le 2-12 pour avoir plus de présence avec la guitare acoustique et cet amplis remplis sa mission avec brio. Toutes mes guitares électriques sonnent mieux sur cet amplis que sur mon amplis a lampe YGM-4. Les effets intégrés sonnent aussi très très bien et l'apprentissage de l'ensembles des contrôles se fait aussi facilement. Pour bien gérer toutes les possibilités il faut acheter le pédalier en option.

The Katana is an amazing amp. Sounds good clean, sounds good dirty. It?s stinking loud as well. The boss tone studio is simple and fun as hell. Get the sneaky amps patch it?s a must. I love this amp and will never sell it.

So, I went into the store ready to buy a VOX tube amp, had the money and everything up front, was completely set on buying it. Then, I heard a dude play this baby next to me while I was using the VOX AC15C1. I swear, this amp sounded amazing coming from this guy, and he was playing a Fender stratocaster through it. I ended up talking to him and playing around with the thing for about an hour and a half before changing my mind and buying the Katana. I can say after 5 months of owning this thing that I am well beyond impressed. It really does sound very much like a high quality tube amp, maybe even better than some at this price range. The effects on it are far beyond gimmicks, and really do have the genuine sound and tone. Also, very adjustable too. If you're looking for an amp that you can gig, practice, and just screw around with, this amp will suit your needs tenfold.

I bought this amp (100 watt 2x12 model) after reading lots of positive reviews and then giving one a try at L&M. Plug in your favourite guitar, close your eyes and think "great tube amp". I have owned several good tube amps (Vox, Marshall, and Mesa) I still have a really great tube amp but wanted a good modelling amp as a backup. I tried a few of the other modelling amp so bailable in the process. This amps tube sounds and playing responsiveness are very convincing. The built in effects are fully fledged Boss effects. Controls are intuitive, no crazy digital screens or menus to get lost in. I am thoroughly impressed with the sound quality and Boss' approach to designing these amps. And it is LOUD when you need it to be with output power scaling down to a loud 1/2 watt if you want that. Despite its moderate price point this amp is not a toy or just a practice amp. That's why it is so revolutionary. This amp is simply too versatile and great sounding for me to ever get rid of. A relatively low cost amp that REALLY sounds and plays like a great tube amp? Who'd of thought! Get one while you can. They sell out fast (there's a reason for that ;-) ! Gonna keep it for a good long time. Cheers!
