Exceeded my expectations!


I wanted an amp loaded with features and great sound. This amp didn't disappoint! It is amazing with all of the features built into the amp, and with all of the effects built in and the availability of Boss's Tone Studio I will never run out of the choices this amp has to offer. The optional foot switch GA-FC is a must for making selections on the fly. The sound quality is through the roof. From the .5 watt bedroom feel to the 100 watt blow your hair back power control the Waza Craft speaker doesn't waver on clarity. If you are looking for that one amp that can do everything you need to buy this amp

Perfect Combo Amp


The boss katana series is one of the best combo series I have ever owned! It offers so many real effects and a great tone that is hard to find within budget! It models some of the most popular boss effects Like the brown channel from the waza amp. It offers a line out for recording! and one of the best tings about this particular katana amp is you can select different cabinet options!
