So I finally went ahead and bought a Katana 50. No pics because there are literally thousands of those available elsewhere. Now I just need to get a placard for the front so I can nickname it "The Kid." But if I posted pics, it might just come up as "Ignored Member" for a lot of you. I just really needed a light grab and go amp. I have an HRD IV that I really, really like. In fact just last week I found this amazing setting between the clean and drive channels that kind of gave me 4 "channels" in conjunction with my Tubescreamer. It sounds glorious. I'm getting basically all the sounds I want out of one OD pedal, a reverb pedal (I like Plate) and the footswitch. But it's stupid heavy and when I do play out of the house, it's overkill. So far so good just messing around with the Katana. Easy to dial in great sounds. It's certainly not going to make me sell the HRD. I'm actually having trouble dialing in a good clean tone without much noise. It seems the clean channel requires some gain to really get any volume out of it. And the clean channel also sounds dark to me. I like a more "open" sound which is why I went with the HRD vs the Blues Jr. Right now, I seem to prefer the Crunch channel on low gain for my "clean" tone. The only thing I'm not really digging at the moment is it feels like I need some sort of supplemental tech book to understand how this thing works. I was considering the Mustang GT and really like the app you could use. I was kind of surprised Boss didn't have a similar app for the Katana. So without the computer set up (I am in the process of setting up a PC at home, but haven't gotten it together yet and my Mac laptop is ancient) everything is being done via the panel. But then I find out you only have access to basically 9 effects out of the 50+. There are others available in Bank B, but hell if I can figure out how to get to Bank B without the computer software or the footswitch. But the eventual access to all these effects is going to be pretty awesome. There are a lot of pedals you feel like you want to play with an explore, but are pretty sure you don't want to drop serious coin on. Well, I just got an AMP with 50+ pedals for 220 bucks. That's kind of insane when you think about it. Once I get the computer up and going, I am really interested to seek out other people's tone presets. I guess you're limited to only 4 "channels" plus the "panel" which should honestly be more than enough. If it starts to get more use, I might look into the footswitch. Seems like a really nice setup from looking at demo videos.
