About the Katana Amp Series
Katana—the traditional sword carried by the historic samurai of Japan—is a symbol of honor, precision, and artistry in Japanese culture. Adopting the majestic sword’s name with pride, the Katana series presents guitar amplifiers with smooth, cutting tones honed by generations of dedication and expertise. Born of the development process behind the acclaimed Waza amplifier, these innovative amps embody BOSS’s determined pursuit of the ultimate rock sound. Featuring proprietary circuit designs and meticulous tuning, the Katana series combines traditional craftsmanship and breakthrough functions to produce true next-generation rock amplifiers.

Refined Tones for Stage and Recording
Built for pro players, the 100-watt Katana-Artist combo features a new cabinet design with front-facing controls and a premium Waza 12-inch speaker. The semi-closed back is ideal for rock tones, and the tight, rugged construction produces rich, full sound with impressive projection. You can further tweak the response for your touch with the dedicated Cabinet Resonance control, which customizes the dynamic interaction between the amp’s output section and speaker. In addition, the sound and response of the Katana-Artist’s five amp characters have been fine-tuned to work in perfect harmony with the Waza speaker and new cabinet.

Waza Speaker: Legendary Tone, Modern Power
A standout feature of the Katana-Artist is its custom Waza 12-inch speaker, which produces tones inspired by the benchmark 25-watt British stack speaker from the 1960s. BOSS set out to fully capture the rock speaker’s sought-after sound and response, but with the practical benefit of greatly increased power handling. Through detailed analysis of original speakers and careful selection of the magnet, cone material, and other construction elements, BOSS has fully realized this goal.

Good practice amp
What is your opinion of this product?
Well the tones are good not great .still yet much better than many others on the market including line6 .well first it doesn’t except distortion pedals very well not a deal breaker but a little disappointed in that I love my own dirt pedals and love variation to my tone .the brown Chanel is very much what you can expect very metal friendly,not necessarily the best thing about the amp the lead Chanel is what I use with the option of the blue driver internal sounds give gives some nice violin type sustain kinda like holdsworth in which that’s what I personally go for somewhat hollow and sustained.. the clean is good almost fender like but the acoustic Chanel is awesome with the built in delay and reverb gives you a matchless ,Vox kinda vibe chimey top end

Simply Awesome!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
I loved the original Boss Katana 100 1x12. The speaker upgrade to the Waza Craft and the additional speaker out was definitely worth the price to me. The larger cabinet helps with the additional punch to the sound.

Really surprising what it is capable of doing.
What is your opinion of this product?
Many years ago, I had one of the first Roland Cube amplifiers. They were impressive, now in 2018 we have the Boss Katana Artist. This amplifier can do anything I need it to do. It is completely giggable and it has tone in spades. Every setting is packed with good sounds and it is extremely versatile. Unlike other modeling amplifiers, its control interface is fairly simple and straight forward so for those like me who do not like too many "switches and stuff" it makes a bit more sense. In short, I really like this amplifier, I like its tone, and I do not ever see it leaving my amplifier arsenal.

Now you can 'Morph' into everything!
What is your opinion of this product?
The amplifier is just a stellar piece of equipment and with the aid of the Boss Tone Studio and the 'sneaky amps', you can develop a whole plethora of amp models and configure your effects to no end. You really need to purchase the foot controller to access everything on the fly, but I don't think this amp will leave you wanting for more. I'm totally new to this stuff but Roland/Boss make it a simple process to configure and program this amp to everything you want or have dreamed of owning! Just spectacular!

Excellent Amp
What is your opinion of this product?
Just received the new Boss Katana Artist amp. It’s nice, it’s better than the other Katanas. Waza speaker sounds excellent. Really cuts through! Purchasing the amp with the GA-FC footswitch is a no brainer. Portable, light weight enough for gigs, and the Boss Tone Studio is great for managing presets, effects, and tweaks. This Artist version is the best value for players, don’t really see a need a reason to spend for the Waza amp rig as its cost is prohibitive. The Artist is more than sufficient to gig, practice, record etc. I give it 5 out of 5 stars!

Boss is king!
What is your opinion of this product?
I’ve had the katana 50, katana 212 100 And this amplifier is head and shoulders above those. The interface is essentially the same so there was no real learning curve. The tone however seem to be more professional level. I’m not sure if this is too to the speaker cab design or software but probably a combination of all three. All of the settings were absolutely usable but has a responsive equalizer and the effects are great. I have an old dog new tricks don’t go over well so I didn’t play with the software but I felt like I didn’t have to, but it’s good to know it’s there if I really want to week. Highly recommended!

Best amp I ever bought
What is your opinion of this product?
This amp has everything I need. If you get the roland ga fc you will most likely not need any additional effects. This thing has it all for me. Love it better than my tube amp. Even on a half watt this thing is so loud cant wait to take it out gigging
