Boss Unveils the Katana Bass Amps

Boss releases the first bass guitar models in the Katana amp lineup, the Katana-100 and Katana 210.


Offering three unique preamp types, assertive class AB power amps, versatile tone-shaping tools, onboard BOSS effects, and more, these stage-ready combos deliver sound and advanced features designed for the needs of serious bassists. Introduced in 2016, the Katana guitar amp series has become a staple for players around the world. Combining great tone and feel with rich versatility via selectable amp characters, built-in effects, and recallable sound memories, the evolving Katana lineup continues to be a favorite for everyone from home hobbyists to pro stage performers. With the Katana-110 Bass and Katana-210 Bass, BOSS now brings the innovation behind the Katana series to bass players for the first time.

Each model features an efficient bi-amp design backed by time-tested class AB power, plus a variable Power Control for achieving optimum sound at any volume. Vintage, Flat, and Modern preamp types are available—each with a powerful three-way Shape switch to fine-tune the character—providing the perfect voice for any style or genre. The Katana-110 Bass features 60 watts of power, a 10-inch woofer, and a tweeter, making it ideal for home/studio playing and small stages. The Katana-210 Bass features 160 watts, two 10-inch woofers, and a tweeter, offering extra power and fullness for larger performance setups. The tweeter provides high-frequency definition for slap and other modern styles and can be disabled for a more traditional sound if desired.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for blues music, but the blues scale can yield beguiling musical results that bear little resemblance to the traditional blues—particularly if one looks at (and listens to) the scale from a different point of view.
