BOSS Katana-100 Gen 3 100W 1x12" Guitar Amplifier

BOSS Katana-100 Gen 3 100W 1x12" 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.

Powerful and Portable

Equipped with 100 watts of Class AB power, the Katana-100 Gen 3 model delivers big, stage-ready sound in an easy-to-carry 1x12 combo. This amplifier offers the perfect balance of power and portability, ensuring that you can perform at your best in any setting. The custom 12-inch speaker is designed to handle the amp's robust output, providing clear, dynamic tones.

Comprehensive Tone Control

The Katana-100 Gen 3 features six amp characters—including the newly developed Pushed type—plus a selectable variation for each, giving you a wide range of tonal options. The five independent effects sections (Booster, Mod, FX, Delay, and Reverb) allow for extensive sound customization. Three-way Contour and Cabinet Resonance options let you shape your tone to perfection. With eight Tone Setting memories, you can store all your amp and effect settings for quick recall during performances.

Enhanced Connectivity

This amplifier offers versatile connectivity options, including Power Amp In for preamps, modelers, and multi-effects, and a Stereo Expand function to link with a second Katana amp. The send/return loop allows for integration with external pedals, while the stereo headphones jack, line output, and USB output with IR-based cabinet sound facilitate recording and silent practice. You can also record and play tracks in music production software on a computer or mobile device via USB-C.

Customization and Expansion

The Katana-100 Gen 3 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.
