    On the KT 100 there is a setting (octave)
    What is that?
    How can I translate that to the super-sonic pedal-wise
    Plzzzzzz

    Octaver or harmonizer pedal. Quickest link I could think of:

    I don't know much about them, somebody else might be able to help more.

    Hello,

    First time poster... I just wanted to inform all that I downloaded the sneaky liveset and FINALLY found an amp model I LOOOOVE! I've been trying to get a gain tone without the fizzy/fuzzy preamp hiss distortion, something that in my mind is a power amp distortion. I found it in the orng rb amp model which is an Orange Rockerverb! A little darker, but great distortion, cleans up well, NOT FIZZY!!! and this is with a strat and my albert lee humbucker. If you'r elooking for similar, I heartily recommend it, and god bless the Katana line! ;-)

    That Floorboard looks pretty interesting. Hopefully, someone will make a Katana-Floorboard vid and post on youtube.

    The best thing about it is you can move the pedals and amp around in the chain. I have used it once or twice

    That and the apparent ability to have additional effects at the same time.

    Been gigging a Kat 50.

    Played for a crowd of about 150 last week.

    Another gig this weekend for a crowd of 150-200.

    Volume is no issue and no regrets after owning it since last winter.

    For my use setting up two great sounding channels quickly in in a matter of minutes depending on venue is a huge plus. One button footswitch and riding the guitar volume knob I'm good on tones for the night.

    It's the smallest, lightest, and cheapest amp I've ever gigged yet the one I've been most pleased with in years and there's been many.

    Standby switch is brilliant though some tube snobs may laugh. If you're in high gain settings it's going to produce the same noise as a tube amp when not playing. Standby mutes it til the break is over.

    Acoustic setting allows to switch instruments. I've used a A/E through it several times.

    Other than a line out hard to imagine how they could possibly improve the $199 wonder box.

    Years ago a guy with a Gibby or Strat would of been frowned on for skimping on a $200 amp. Those days are over.

    My Eleven Rack sounds more 3D than my Katana 50 but I spent like 6 months to dial my patches. The Katana is in my living room and what I can say is Katana's a nice amp to play thru. Power the amp, select a channel, pick the guitar (LTD ST-203 natural ash (strat copy with 3 single coils), which is gorgeous) and that's it. As any amp the sound might not be for you but it reacts/feels like a good tube amp, and hard t beat for the money.

    2 channels is enough for me: rhythm (Crunch amp) which cleans up with guitar volume and lead (Brown amp) with delay. Bonus is Panel where I setup an acoustic guitar simulator (Guitar Sim, S -> Acoustic), which sound almost as good as any real acoustic with piezo plugged in a PA.

    Are you referring to the acoustic channel with an acoustic guitar or some other setup?

    There's an acoustic guitar sim which is pretty good in the effects.

    Hey guys!

    I'll give a try on the Katana 100 1x12 this Monday before buying it.

    Does this amp handles fuzz and muff pedals?

    Any experiences?

    Thanks!

    Count me in for the Boss Katana Club. Picked up my mine today (Katana 50). And I am absolutely pleased with it so far.

    The K's work great with drive/distortion pedals.

    I don't have a fuzz pedal so I can't comment on that.

    I'm getting a Katana 50 delivered on Tuesday (10/3/17). I was looking for a fairly portable 40-50W SS amp that I can move around my house or down a few doors to my neighbor's house when jamming. So having some modeling or effects built in was desired so I could leave my PB alone if I wanted to keep it simple when playing outside of my music room. And after looking at what's out there, the Katana was a no-brainer. Correct me if I'm wrong but you have 4 different amp voices plus one other for when plugging in an acoustic, 15 built-in effects to choose from with up to 3 active at once (1 gain/modulation, 1 delay/wah/trem/vib, 1 reverb), and a USB interface with something like 55 more effects that can be loaded into the 15 available slots. The sounds are great IMO and this all lists for $200, and I got it for significantly less at my dealer. Really looking forward to this amp.

    The 50 has two on-board savable "channels" and one live "panel" channel.

    The user manual can be downloaded here: https://www.boss.info/us/support/by...manuals/0aa1a942-22b7-4d37-bb59-e0529675bb29/

    I just purchased a speaker cabinet to go with my Katana 100w head.

    I ordered it loaded with a Celestion Vintage 30 8ohm 12" speaker.
