Boss Katana Artist MKII Modeling Combo

Boss Katana Artist Version 2 100W 1x12 Guitar Amp

Boss Katana Artist V2: The Ultimate Katana Experience

The Katana-Artist MkII, the premier model in the Katana lineup, has been elevated with next-generation features and unmatched flexibility. This professional 100-watt combo amp features a custom Waza 12-inch speaker that brings the classic British stack speaker tone and response with enhanced power handling. The Tube Logic design approach produces class-defying power, authoritative punch, and cutting presence, while the robust analog class-AB power amp section delivers an authentic tone and highly musical response. The ultra-solid cabinet construction with a semi-closed back provides a tight, focused tone with a rich low end.

Effortless Versatility

For unparalleled versatility, the Katana-Artist MkII offers five amp characters, each with five variations, doubling your tone choices. The onboard effects categories have been expanded from three to five, including Booster, Mod, FX, Delay, and Reverb sections with three variations each. The amp's exclusive front-panel controls, including a three-way Contour switch and Global EQ with three customizable curves, allow for extensive sound-shaping options. Additionally, the Solo boost with adjustable level provides a powerful lead sound. With new dual amp functionality, linking and controlling two Katana-Artist MkIIs for massive, ultra-wide tones is effortless.
