Love my 50 and 100h, time to sell both!!
Saw the announcement this morning. Looks nice but I'll wait for the lefty version
I am consumed with ennui.
They seem to have addressed one of my complaints about the overloaded effects knobs, but it's not enough to make me want to trade up. It's also a bold move, which I support in general, to offer "models not based on any specific real world amp".
There is a fizz in my katana just as there is in any modeler i owned.
I don't have exeptional hearing. But I can't stand strats either because of all the unwanted noice from the tremelo and springs.
But if you want to upgrade it could be a good idea.
What a dick move by Boss.
It's only been 3 years since they first released the Katana. All those funny 'improvement' on mk.ii, the sudden announcement, the communities that have been working on tweaking the mk.i, actively suggesting new features, reporting bugs, people that have been buying this amp in the last few months, and i doubt that they've been maximized the potential of the mk.i.
No matter how good that thing sounds, like any digital product, it's only a good product as long as fixes, updates, and supports for it continues.
It might be too soon to say goodbye to Boss' line of products before seeing any improvement they'll make for the mk.i, but it looks to me that they just want to capitalize as much as possible from the Katana hype.
Let's hear it for the disposable age. Amps are like cell phones now.
Sadly, it's like everything now. Why do car companies release new models every year? Stoves, refrigerators, everything. Consume, dispose, repeat.
You kids get off my lawn!
I'm really not impressed. Maybe a different presentation that focused on clean and modulation effects would help?
Yeah, I decided today to sell my Katana to help fund a Deluxe TM. Then I see this. Looks like I will probably lose 25% of my sale price now.
Fender changed the design of his amps at least 3 times in the 1950s...
Yes indeedly doodle-y !
that’s why I started the following thread
Any of you guys with katanas – you bought too early!
Like we say here, "Leo go it right the first ... second and third time"
Looks like they responded to complaints about the effects functionality (not my complaints, though) and added a few more I/O options plus a few more models. Terrible!!
You say that as though it's a bad thing!
I think these are great.
A couple of Katanas and a Boss ME-80, and you've got an amazing stereo rig that you can instantly replace for under a thousand bucks at almost any medium sized or larger music store in North America or Europe.
I don't want a rig that costs $10K and I need Joe Bonamassa's tech to set up for me. I can't afford either!
I have several Cube 60s. I still love the Deluxe Reverb setting. It gets extremely close to my 74 SFDR.
I also have a Katana Mk1 head that I use for pedal steel that sounds much much better than a Quilter Steelaire that costs 5x as much...
If you can't get useful musical tones from a Katana, it's not the equipment's fault.
I'm curious about the Mk2, but I'm also looking forward to possibly grabbing another Mk1 at a bargain price.
Really tragic. Imagine a company daring to improve a product after three years. I'm surprised it's not a crime.
Great stuff for cheap!
Wait. Everyone into guitars knows that vintage always sounds better. You now have a vintage Katana that must sound way better than that new design.
That's the way digital products work.
The only reason they would update is if the sales were slowing.
I actually played through a Katana for the 1st time, last weekend at a local jam. There was a couple of them on the stage and a Fender Deluxe, couple Vox, to me, at higher volumes the tube amps just own it.
