With more of the features you've been asking for, the Boss Katana Head MkII reaches for new heights in tone, value and features.  You now have double the amp voicings with newly voiced variations available for the five onboard amp models.  The effects have also been given a boost, expanding from three to five categories, giving you more options to build unique sounds.  A power amp input has been added - perfect for those working with modelers and multi-FX, whilst the updated editor software gives you more control than ever before.


Offering everything from boutique cleans, iconic vintage tones to the latest high-gain dirt, the Boss Katana Head MkII will have you covered.  There's even a voice optimized for acoustic-electric guitar, which really makes the Katana MKII a dual purpose amp.  The amp characters have been built on with new variations that give you more options that cover a wider sonic territory.


The Boss Katana Head MKII puts the effects capabilities of a pedalboard right inside the amp.  The independent booster, modulation, FX, Delay & Reverb sections are loaded with three variations in each, giving you 15 effects to choose from, straight out the box.  If you want to dig deeper, just connect to BOSS Tone Studio to customize your tone with over 60 different effect types and 4 different chains. 


Delivering genuine tube like output distortion using BOSS's Tube Logic approach, you'll feel the amp become more responsive as you turn it up.  But before you annoy the neighbours, just flick the Katana Head MKII's variable Power Control to drop down from 100 watts, to 50 watts, or even 0.5 of a watt.  It's easy to get that cranked up tube amp tone at a volume you can handle, whether it's in the bedroom or the stage.


The speaker out on the Katana Head MkII supports connection to your preferred 8-ohm or 16-ohm cabinet. And with the handy built-in monitor speaker, you're able to check tones and practice anywhere without having to hook up a cab at all. Advanced players will appreciate the MIDI input, which provides easy integration with MIDI controllers and switching devices.

The Boss Katana Head MkII can store eight of your favourite tone settings directly onboard, ready to be instantly recalled when you need them.  A quick button hold is all that is required to save to your desired memory location.  To recall your favourite settings on stage, pair up your amp with the optional GA-FC foot controller.  Connecting via a single cable (and requiring no external power), you can use the six footswitches to directly recall your tone settings and independently turn the five effects sections on/off.

On the Katana Head MkII you can now link two amps together via the new Stereo Expand feature.  With just one cable you're able to distribute stereo effects like chorus, delay and reverb across both amps for a wide, immersive sound field.  Just control your parameters with the master Katana Head MKII.

If you love to lay down some tracks in the studio, the Katana Head MkII is for you.  Featuring a USB and phones/recording output, you'll be recording great tones in no time.  The mic'd cabinet emulation settings help to get you mix-ready tones straight to your computer or headphones.  Three different Air Feel settings are also available via Boss Tone Studio, helping to shape your direct sound further.  Many of the Katana's effects are in stereo, and the USB output is also stereo, allowing you to capture spacious reverbs and delays in all their stereo glory direct to your computer DAW.

The BOSS Tone Studio software has been given a refresh to match the amp.  The interface has been updated and parameters consolidated into the main screen for faster workflow.  It's easy to assign wah and pedal bend effects to a connected expression pedal thanks to the dedicated Pedal FX category.  Finally, you can import your custom patches from your 1st Gen Katana, to get all of your favourite pre-built tones on the Katana Head MKII.
