I've been using a Mustang 1 V2 for nearly two years now and I'm not a huge fan of it - sounds okay but it's not all that user-friendly (I prefer to be working with tone knobs, not presets), so I'm looking to upgrade. I was initially pretty set on a tube amp, but it seems like everywhere I go online the Katana series are fawned over. I'm liking what I see from it (the 50 in particular) - the price, versatility, ability to use as an interface (I'm enough of a noob with recording to struggle with getting a good tone direct into my interface with DAW effects), control (seems to be less preset-based than the Mustang), and supposed pedal friendliness, but I'm also concerned as a lower-budget modeling amp it won't feel like much of an upgrade from my Mustang. If I was gigging I'd go for a tube (probably used), but I don't gig - like 90% of my playing is at home and the other 10% is jamming with friends, once in a while with a drummer. To complicate matters I'm likely moving into an apartment in a few months, so volume may be an issue. It's also a little harder on my wallet and it'd likely necessitate a few more pedals that would be built-in on the Katana. I've looked into several lower-end tubes - Blues Jr, Marshall DSL5CR, Blackstar HT5R, Peavey Classic 30, Egnater Tweaker, and Bugera V22. The Bugera seems to be the most full-featured for the least price, so I'd lean a little harder over that than the others. I'm leaning Katana, but having never owned a tube amp before, it's hard to shake that curiosity. Thoughts?
