This Boss KTN Mini amplifier features an authentic multi-stage analog gain circuit for great, expressive sound, plus a traditional analog EQ and an integrated tape-type delay. Ultra-compact and ready to take on the go, the KATANA-Mini produces an inspirational KATANA sound, wherever you want to play.
Unlike small, battery-powered guitar amplifiers, the KATANA-Mini produces a large, full sound. The versatile design of the BOSS includes a custom speaker, advanced hardware, refined circuits and a special selection of components, all working together to produce the highest sound quality in a minimal space. The amplifier also incorporates decades of energy-efficient BOSS research, delivering power and power through only six AA size batteries.
The KATANA-Mini's fully analog input circuitry includes several gain stages that lead to three classic sound settings, offering the same cascading gain approach found on high quality amplifiers. This is what gives the KATANA-Mini a satisfying buzzer and a quick, interactive, distortion-responsive feel that is easily controlled with the input volume and strength of the pick.
Inspired by the BOSS's Waza amplifier, the Brown KATANA-Mini setting delivers high-gain, high-harmonic sounds perfect for heavy riffs and aggressive solos. The Crunch delivers an ideal overdrive for rock rhythms and bluesy leads, while Clean delivers crisp, clear sounds with a dynamic response.
The KATANA-Mini comes equipped with a true panoply of three-band analog sounds, providing a natural sound setting through bass, mid and treble controls, just like the Stack sounds of a full-sized stage amp. The sound can be enhanced with the KATANA-Mini's tape-type delay. Using the dedicated time and level buttons, it's easy to tinker with everything from reverb to delay repeats.
Thanks to the advanced and compact design of the KATANA-Mini, you can get great guitar sound anytime, anywhere. At less than three pounds, it sits nicely on a table or shelf in your home. It is easy and convenient to pick up the amplifier and play wherever you want, indoors or outdoors. With the auxiliary input, you can turn on your smartphone and play with your personal music library, or with tracks transmitted from the web. And for training and recording situations, you'll want to take advantage of the headphone / recorder outputs, which feature speaker simulators for the actual amplifier sound picked up with a microphone.
