Boss-Approved Tone & Effects

Boss-Approved Tone & Effects
Start crafting your custom bass tone on either amp with the Type knob: choose Vintage for classic thump, Flat for a neutral response, or Modern for a higher-fidelity preamp sound. From there, dial in your desired amount of dry or uncolored signal via the Blend knob. Volume, Gain and a 4-band EQ section do the heavy lifting with regards to tone, and you can further tweak your signal with the Shape control, or by bypassing your tweeter!

Boss also brings their effects expertise to Katana Bass. Start by selecting your overdrive and compressor of choice, then dial in to taste. From there, use the FX1 and FX2 controls to add and adjust a series of classic Boss effects, from chorus and octave to bass synth and flanger, as well as reverb and delay.

Equipped to Gig and Record

Equipped to Gig and Record
On the back of both Katana Bass amps, you'll spot a variety of ins and outs, including the effects loop, headphone out, and aux in. You can also add an expression pedal, or a Boss GA-FC footswitch for instant recall of presets. Each amp also offers a balanced XLR output for recording or plugging direct into a PA system, as well as a power amp input if you'd like to use an external preamp.

Another important connection is the USB output. Connect to your computer to record direct, and use the variable power control to mute the signal, or turn down to one watt for cranked tones at quieter volumes. The USB connection also lets you access Boss's Tone Studio editor, which unlocks several more effects and features, as well as deep editing tools you can tweak and save to your amp!
