Boss Katana Guitar & Bass Amps

You've probably heard of the Boss Katana amps as they've been one of the best new guitar products in recent years. These amps are loved for giving users access to great modelled amp sounds and an easy-to-use multi-fx. Sometimes home amps can get confusing for users when there are tons of effects and options but the Katana range has simplified this whilst still providing excellent sounds on-board.

The Katana amps have also got power scaling meaning you can change the headroom response and the wattage when you want to go from home practice to the rehearsal room to the stage.
