    Been playing nd exploring since Katana 100 arrived yesterday.
    Cool beans.
    Which amp cover was suggested for the 1X12 ?
    Each of my guitars have found their voices with this amp.
    My Casino hasn't sounded this good in awhile.:cool:

    Congrats on the new amp. Really like mine also.

    For a lot less geets you can use a Mustang III cover which apparently fits perfect. Not sure if the Fender logo would cast some evil juju on this fine amp though. :p

    100 Head:

    Still not up to speed, matter of fact dead in the water on the sneeky amp bit.
    If I were ever to take it anywhere(Roguestock), I'd probably need the switch.
    Jury is still out.

    Doesn't take forever to warm up like the Carvin.

    Put a Fender cover on my Kat 50 as soon as it arrived. Blues Jr. cover I believe.

    Couple Blackstars also have Fender covers.

    Yep.. that's the only new FMIC product I buy.

    Any problem with 'fizz' after using those covers? :eek:

    Oh wait................. that was a Blues Jr. cover, so probably no fizz issue!

    Hm...
    Hasn't come up yet...
    But
    Guess I'd better investigate a cover for the KT head.

    I just traded my Mustang GT for the K50 yesterday. Really enjoying the sounds I get out of this amp. Looking forward to spending more time with the Sneaky Amp set list too.

    I gigged with my 100w head. I still don't have a cab yet, I plan on building my own 2x12, so we micd it up. I got several compliments on my sound and found the amp held up well.

    Are you saying you mic'd up the little driver in the head and got a good PA sound?

    Yes, that is what I did. I used sneaky amps to get a mesa boogie vintage rectifier sound.

    Wow, there's a club?! I got my 212 on May 31, and I love it. If I didn't LOVE some of the effects and options on my Pod, I'd probably get rid of that, but 4 cable method works great with it. Can't wait to really crank it up. Anyone got a Mini yet?

    So
    Sittin here this afternoon
    Dickin with patching two cabs to satisfy the incoming Super Sonic 22 head...
    Knowing the Katana will tolerate inexactness in ohm loads.
    So I get to a point and settings my Tele likes...
    Go get the black peavey, sort of a rogue, it..
    Still sounds good...
    Kept on dickin with it ....
    Lost the spot...
    Took 60 minute, or an hour to find my way back...
    Gotta take a picture...
    That tone could be useful...
    Thought to myself...
    Self...
    Yes Ono, whatcha want...
    Well self, Damn shame Boss doesn't make a Katana peddle...
    Ono, you're just a wasted life and a fool...

    Here
    This ^^^

    You can get a GT100 for $500 or get a $329 Kat 100 which is the GT100 built into a great amp.

    Not worth flipping a coin over.

    Especially when you already own the Katana Head like Thom does...
