BOSS Katana Head Gen 3 100W Guitar Amplifier

BOSS Katana Head Gen 3 Guitar Amplifier: The Next Generation of a Modern Classic

With Katana Gen 3, the acclaimed BOSS stage amplifier series evolves to take your guitar ambitions to the next level. New Tube Logic enhancements enrich the core platform with even greater sound, feel, and response, including an expressive Pushed amp character that edge-of-breakup fans will love. The BOSS Tone Studio app has also been updated, making your remote amp and effects editing workflow more intuitive than ever. Loaded with inspiring tone tools and diverse connectivity options, Katana Gen 3 is your indispensable centerpiece for studio recording, live performance, and daily practice.

Compact and Powerful

The compact Katana Head Gen 3 features 100 watts of Class AB power, a unique Bloom option derived from the flagship Katana Artist Gen 3, and an onboard 5-inch speaker for practice and checking tones. This amp head is designed to deliver robust, stage-ready sound in a portable form factor, making it ideal for musicians on the move.

Versatile Tone and Effects

This amplifier head offers six amp characters—including the newly developed Pushed type—plus a selectable variation for each, providing a wide range of tonal options. The five independent effects sections (Booster, Mod, FX, Delay, and Reverb) allow for extensive sound customization. The Bloom switch engages a dedicated circuit that revoices the amp’s feel and response, while the three-way Contour and Cabinet Resonance options enable precise tone shaping.

Comprehensive Connectivity

The Katana Head Gen 3 offers extensive connectivity options to suit your needs. The 8-ohm speaker jack allows for use with external cabinets, while the Power Amp In is perfect for preamps, modelers, and multi-effects. The send/return loop facilitates integration with external pedals, and the stereo headphones jack, line output, and USB output with IR-based cabinet sound make recording and silent practice easy. You can also record and play tracks in music production software on a computer or mobile device via USB-C. MIDI input provides advanced remote control capabilities.

Customization and Expansion

This amp head supports up to two footswitches and an expression pedal, and is compatible with the GA-FC and GA-FC EX Foot Controllers for complete stage control. The optional Bluetooth® Audio MIDI Dual Adaptor (BT-DUAL) enables wireless audio playback and remote editing from the BTS app. The updated BOSS Tone Studio interface provides a more intuitive workflow, allowing you to customize onboard effects with over 60 premium BOSS types and detailed editing tools.
