Boss Katana 100/212 MKII 100Watt Guitar Combo Amplifier


With five distinct amp characters to choose from, support for acoustic-electric guitars, and access to a wide range of customizable effects, the BOSS Katana MkII series represents a new generation of flexible amplifiers for practice and performance.

The BOSS Katana 100/212 MkII is the latest installation in BOSS’s esteemed line of Katana Series amplifiers. And whether you’re interested in accessing its pummeling hundred-watt output section and platform-perfect 12″ speakers to amplify your existing modelers and preamps, or in building your dream tones from the ground up to the create the ultimate all-in-one gig and practice solution. The Katana 100/212 MkII is a powerful tool in the hands of any electric or acoustic player. Cab-emulated outputs and monitoring make the BOSS Katana 100/212 MkII a truly silent stage and studio guitar solution, while multi-channel footswitch support provides hands-free remote access to every sound in your arsenal. New amp variations and access to 60 timeless BOSS effects within the BOSS Tone Studio editor make the 100/212 MkII a tone tweaker’s holiday. There’s even single-cable stereo operation for running dual Katanas from the stage — the perfect way to fill space in a single-guitar outfit.

The BOSS Katana-100/212 MkII packs five distinct amp voicings. Clean, Crunch, and Lead cover the range from chiming clean tones and gritty rhythm tones to solo-worthy high-gain leads. As an added bonus, the Brown setting is derived from the BOSS Waza amplifier — think iconic ’80s metal. And finally, the Acoustic mode allows you to plug in your acoustic-electric guitar, too. No matter what style of music you play or even what kind of guitar you play, there’s a world of tone to explore in the BOSS Katana-100/212 MkII combo amplifier.

While the Katana-100/212 MkII offers a Power Control for getting cranked-amp tone at a low volume level, you can achieve truly silent operation onstage or in the studio by connecting the amp’s line output to a line input on your recording device or a PA, completely bypassing the speaker. Cab emulation is available on the USB and headphone outputs, as well, so however you choose to monitor your 100/212 MkII, it’ll feel like you’re standing in front of an amp. Selectable cab resonance (Vintage/Modern/Deep) and Air Feel miking emulation (direct, distant, or blended) allow you to tailor emulated tones to taste.

The Katana-100/212 MkII supports 60 timeless BOSS effects, and you can load an entire series of them for instant access. The amp’s Booster/Mod, FX/Delay, and Reverb controls give you easy one-knob access to each effects type, with a color-coded button to switch between preset effects. To completely customize your effects and amp settings, connect the Katana-100/212 MkII to your computer via USB and load up the Tone Studio software. Create your own setup, or download setups created by pro guitarists at the BOSS Tone Studio website. Best of all, the Katana-100/212 MkII can store multiple custom amp and effects profiles for instant recall, making this combo a versatile multichannel amplifier.
