An immaculate example of the Boss Katana 50 MKII EX 1x12 Combo. This is arguably the industry standard for usable home practice amps, and is plenty loud enough to gig with too.

The BOSS Katana-50 MkII EX is a stage-ready combo amplifier that expands upon the best-selling Katana-50 MkII model, offering extra performance versatility in the same compact footprint. This EX version of the BOSS Katana-50 MkII amp is geared towards gigging guitarists who want the additional features offered by the larger Katana-100 MkII combo with the portability of the Katana-50 MkII.

Better Than Ever

The Katana MkII is the next evolution of the popular Katana guitar amp series, which has been offering professional and beginner guitarists alike a wealth of tones and features at an affordable price. The core platform that made the Katana range so renowned has been turbocharged with more features, sounds an effects. The result is a fantastic stage-class amplifier with a pedalboard of premium BOSS effects built-in.

A World of Amp Tones

At the core of the Katana-50 MkII EX are its 5 primary amp characters - Acoustic, Clean, Crunch, Lead and Brown. Each character features a selectable variation for a total of 10 amp voices. From big, bold and dynamic US cleans to articulate UK crunch to brutal high-gain tones, the Katana-50 MkII can deliver it all and more. Acoustic guitarists are also covered, thanks to a dedicated voice that’s optimised for electro-acoustic guitar.

Premium BOSS Effects

When it’s time to add another sonic dimension to your dialled-in amp character, you can reach for the onboard BOSS effects. With five simultaneous effects categories at your disposal, you have the tone-shaping power of an entire pedalboard within your amp. You can choose from 15 different effects straight out of the box - 5 categories with 3 variations in each. Via the free BOSS Tone Studio app, you can select from 60 additional effect types, alter the order of the signal chain, fine-tune parameters and more.

Authentic Valve Response

BOSS have been at the forefront of amplifier technology for decades and it’s this expertise that’s imbued within the Katana-50 MkII EX. Powered by BOSS’s innovative Tube Logic approach, the Katana-50 MkII EX responds like a genuine valve amplifier as you crank up the volume. Because the output distortion character is like a valve amp, you can expect a tone that becomes richer and more responsive as the volume is increased.

Cranked Sound, Any Volume

Unlike a traditional valve amp, the Katana-50 MkII EX lets you find the sweet spot without upsetting your bandmates or neighbours. Using the variable Power Control, you can experience that magical cranked-amp tone wherever you play, from the stage to the studio to the bedroom.

More Than An Amp

In addition to functioning as a top-notch standalone amp, the Katana-50 MkII EX can perform as a powered cabinet for your modeller, preamp or multi-effects unit of choice. Simply connect it to your rear-panel Power Amp In jack to bypass the onboard preamp and internal effects and go straight to the Tube Logic power section. The input can be optimised for your individual rig with a high-pass filter and adjustable gain using the BOSS Tone Studio app

Tonal Recall

Once you’ve dialled in an amp character and effects setup that you want to use later, you can store it to one of 4 Tone Setting memories (2 across 2 banks) with a quick button hold. You instantly recall your Tone Settings from the front panel or an optional FS-series footswitch. The Katana-50 MkII EX can be used alongside the GA-FC or GA-FC EX for expanded hands-free control, with 8 Tone Setting memories (4 panel settings and 4 configurable in BOSS Tone Studio), access to individual effects switching and more.

BOSS Tone Studio

The free BOSS Tone Studio software provides even greater tonal tweaking, giving you the ability to change the factory-loaded effects, rearrange the effect chain, create global EQ settings, adjust system settings and more. Using Livesets, you can save your favourite setups and instantly reconfigure your amp for a variety of playing contexts.
