The Katana Air is NOT a tube amp, it's a modeling amp, just like all the other Katanas.
Putting a bigger/more efficient speaker into a practice amp is a big mistake, IMO.
A small speaker that is inefficient, in a small cabinet, will sound better for that purpose.
I had a Champion 40 for a while. It sounded good stock but it sounded great with an Eminence V128.
Weber has a big selection of 8" speakers and they'll give you a recommendation
Mmm i was sure it was a tube amp.. anyways to me it sounds really good. I would consider it for myself in the future
I thought about it and I don't think I will swap the speaker.
If I had the 40 watts one I could consider doing that because it's powerful enough for rehearsal and maybe even small gigs but I just need something to practise in my room. It's gonna cost me half of what I paid for the amp...
Oh 5 kilos
Did you get the amp yet?
It should arrive today or tomorrow.
Curious to here what you think of the Champ?
I went to the post office just to find it closed.
I will have to pick it up Monday morning.
I live in a rural area and they don't deliver here.
As soon as I get my hands on it I will let you guys know what I think about it
Nothing but an 8" speaker will fit; however I modded mine to include a speaker jack on the back (instead of the hardwired speaker straight into the chassis), so I can run the amp with any 8 ohm extension cab.
I like my Champion 20 -- have been using mine as a home practice amp for 4 or 5 years, no problems at all.
I like the Champions. Simple, inexpensive, sound good. I use a Champion 100 2x12 for our band rehearsals. I can just leave it there with no worries, it's plenty loud, and it only cost me $300. It's hard to beat that combination of features and price. I put a booster and a couple of dirt pedals in front, and I can get all the sounds I need for our stuff.
So. Did you get the amp?
I was able to pick up the amp today.
It's a very loud amp for 20watt and I'm satisfied with it.
The British and metal channel are not my favorites and I couldn't find a nice overdriver fender sound, even with gain at 10.
Maybe it was because I didn't push the amp past volume 3 with gain at 10.
I will try again tomorrow.
For sure I'm gonna get a ts9 or a Maxon 808 to boost those channel the way I like it.
I'm satisfied with it and I still didn't try all the FX.
It's a very valid practise amp.
Once I break in the cone it'll sound even better.
Favorite channels are blackface and tweed.
Same here - I've been using one when I play with some friends (no drums) for three or so years.
The blackface green light with minimal delay setting is my favorite. I haven't changed the speaker
or anything on it.
Im seeling my Nux to get Champion 20 . Special need for small Fender amp !
I have a champion 40 and think that it’s a decent amp .
2 channel’s and sounds very good with a multi effects pedal through channel 1.
It’s not that expensive it’s not heavy and already has a 12” speaker .
Just my .02
Going for 20W Champion , i need to sell my Nux amp first.
Champion 20 is cheap, only 112 USD Here at GC . NAD soon
I wonder what OD pedal would work best with the champion...
I haven't tried one so maybe will. I have been just adding some more of the gain control for some tunes.
The only pedals used with so far are the Digitech Mosaic and the EH B-9.
