BOSS Katana MkII | Version 2 Software Update | What's New?


collapse expand iconDescription

The BOSS Katana-Artist MkII 100W 1x12" guitar combo amplifier is a force to be reckoned with. This flagship Katana model is ready to elevate any performance with its refined sound and unmatched flexibility.

A Custom Speaker That Defines Your Sound

At the heart of this powerhouse amp is a 12" Waza speaker, specially designed by BOSS to deliver a wide and punchy response with rich harmonics. Carefully crafted to embody the character of a legendary 25W British stack speaker from the 1960s, the Waza speaker gives you a vintage rock tone with chest-thumping low end and midrange fullness. Combined with the Katana-Artist MkII's semi-closed cabinet, your riffs will sing with focused intensity.

A Universe of Tones at Your Feet

With five unique amp characters and 10 variations, the tonal possibilities are nearly endless. From pristine clean to high-gain crunch and everything between, you'll find your perfect sound. Onboard, you have the equivalent of a massive pedalboard with five simultaneous effects including modulation, delay, reverb, wah and more. Connect to BOSS Tone Studio for deeper control to customize each section, change effect order and access over 60 types.

Shape Your Tone with Exclusive Tools

The Katana-Artist MkII hands you exclusive front-panel features for crafting your ultimate tone. A three-way Contour switch lets you shape the core amp tone, while three customizable Global EQ curves provide overall sound fine-tuning for your guitar and music style. A foot-controllable Solo boost function with dedicated level control gives you a volume lift for solos and accents.

Built for the Big Stage

Professional players will appreciate the Katana-Artist MkII's dual amp expansion capabilities. With Dual Link, you can operate two Katana-Artist MkIIs together from one GA-FC foot controller, creating wet/dry setups, blending clean and overdriven tones and more. Stereo Expand distributes stereo effects across both amps for an immersive soundscape. Variable Power Control lets you crank the amp while controlling overall volume so you can achieve richly distorted tones at any volume level for any venue.
