The new Boss Katana Gen-3 Guitar Amps are here!

The BOSS Katana Gen 3 guitar combo amplifier provides an inspiring playing experience for guitarists of all levels. This third-generation model builds on the Katana legacy of authentic tube tone and feel at an affordable price. Refinements to the Tube Logic amp modeling provide an even wider range of sound with a new Pushed amp character that lets you achieve satisfying edge-of-breakup tone at lower volumes. Connect to the updated BOSS Tone Studio app for intuitive editing of amp character, effects and more from your computer or mobile device. BOSS continues to lead in sound innovation with the new Katana Gen 3 amplifiers, featuring revamped I/O and six unique amp characters—expandable to 12 with the Variation button. The latest models include the PUSHED edge of breakup amp tones and the BLOOM voicing switch on the HEAD and ARTIST models, enhancing every detail of your tone with superior sound quality, a customizable UI, and optional wireless streaming via the BTS app.
