Hiho! Have a Kustom Defender 5w. It has an 8" speaker. It's a little tube combo amp. I like its sound very much, just straight guitar into amp and thats it. Guitar is a Schecter C-1. Together they can be sweet and smooth and they can produce some real nice growl, too. It's the tube tones I dig, I believe. Want to expand beyond 8" speaker...not for volume, I play mostly at relatively low volumes...but for more rich warm and growly torn up tones. Many good things are said about the Katana 50 so I was thinking about it. But I dont know if maybe a 1x12 ext cab with my Kustom might be more satisfying. The best answers are with my own ears at the music shop, I know. Just interested in your opinions though What especially prompts me to post now though is listening to the Katana 50 samples at the site linked below. Each sample has also a straight line in version, no modeled effects ... I generally preferred the line in samples for having more presence...and not sounding somehow thin. https://www.thomannmusic.com/boss_katana_50.htm What do you think? What choice would you make? A 1x12 cab or katana 50 are about my guitar budget right now. Heard someone testing the katana 50 with a hollow body guitar (washburn) a while ago and it sounded really decent...less sure after listening to these samples though.
