Very good amp
TipoC, 10.05.2020
Very well made amp, top quality.
The sound of the clean channels is awesome. It's what I was looking for because I use a lot of pedals and it takes them very well. Love the sound.
I use it with single coils and with humbuckers

I don't like too much the dirty channels, they are okay but not awesome. You can work with them if you don't have good distorsion and overdrive pedals. Same with the booster effects, some of them sound good but in general I don't like much the sounds. I'm sure you can find good distorted sounds if you spend hours with the Tone Studio software but it's not worth it for me. I will use pedals most of the time.
The best dirty channel for me is the Lead. Crunch is ok. Brown I don't like much.

That said, the amp is amazing, I love it.
The modulation/fx effects, delay and reverb sound good, and as I already said the clean channels are amazing and take very well effect pedals.
And also important you can change whatever you want with the Tone Studio software.

Very happy with my Katana. I totally recommend it.

ridiculous value for money
rickross, 07.08.2020
this amplifier is seriously worth every penny. I was reluctant to buy this as I love my fender Blues Junior and Vox ac 15, both being valve amps.
I thought I'd never appreciate a solid state amp but after hearing them at live shows and using my friends Katana i was blown away with the quality and sound and had to get one. Ive now had it for a little over a year, pre corona virus I have gigged with it and no complaints at all. Its the perfect home studio amp with its power control options you can set what wattage you need for your surroundings which is a vital feature for a home studio... I find the tone setting one of the most important features because you have 4 chanels where you can save the EQ, effects amd ampliefier settings to each chanel so when you come back to it its not lost if you found the perfect sound! so handy

I find the Pros of this amp are the four chanel selections that you can save for your own personal tones and sounds.

four different amp types all having a different variation and an additional acoustic amp which sounds absolutely brilliant

the ease of use

CONS

it would be nice if BOSS supplied a foot switch and a cover, other than that its a must have for any music enthusiast, session musician, home studio, gigging musician

Thomann as usual provided amazing efficient service and had the amp sent to me in very short time which was an added bonus

great modelling amp with plenty power 9/10
@nonim, 27.08.2020
I bought it about 9 months ago and am more than happy, Boss as always delivers great quality product for good price. Its loud as hell, never had a chance to tune it full volume even with hard playing drummer. Option of loading third party ''patches' is absolutely fantastic, you wouldn't believe what sounds you can get out of this box. Once you figure out(there is plenty tutorials on yt) boss katana studio, you're out flying.
The only bad(?)thing I need to say is when you record your guitar through usb signal is a bit weak, which is clearly visible in your DAW during recording, but still does the job so I wouldn't worry about it too much. If I had to buy a new amp it definitely would be another katana 100 mkII but the one with 2 speakers.

Amazing Amp for an upgrade!
Wiplash101, 08.03.2020
This amp is so versatile and simplistic. I was deciding between Line 6 and Boss Katana but preferred the Katana MkII because it has straight forward and simplistic features with amazing sound.
I use it with a Boss ME80 and I appreciate the fact that the effects and features don't come in the way. Though, you can download Boss Tone Studio for editing FX and loading patches.

Pros:
Basic and straight forward effects and interface
High quality sound
0,5W, 50W and 100W power switch
Very light and versatile

Cons:
(For some) Basic and straight forward effects and interface

I recently played on a Peavey Vypyr but I got so frustrated with all the different effects, amp sims, presets and EQ.

This amp is a workhorse for the simplistic player who wants an amp that can do the job no matter what.
