Roland has a long history of making great amps, dating all the way back to 1975 when the legendary JC-120 Jazz Chorus was released. BOSS continues that heritage today with amps like the critically acclaimed Katana amps.
Whether you’re an old-soul bluesman, a silky-smooth neo-soul player, or a straight-up hard rock/metalhead, we’ve got something for you. And although everything sounds better turned up to 11, we’ve made sure that every amp we’ve got produces that same inspiring tone at any level, from “casual practice in front of the TV” to “rocking out in front of a sold-out crowd”!
THE BOSS KATANA AMP RANGE –
Choose Your Weapon
You probably already know how great the BOSS Katana amp range is – the proof is all over the internet and in the hands of users all over the globe since Katana took the amp world by storm in 2016.
Due to its immense popularity, the Katana family of amps has rapidly grown to encompass SEVEN distinct models (and an extension speaker!).
Furthermore, in 2019 the Katana platform was turbocharged with the brand new MkII series, encompassing both hardware and software upgrades across the core stage-ready range.
Developing the Brown Sound
Guitarists have used BROWN as an adjective for guitar tone ever since the phrase emerged back in the late 1970’s/early 1980’s. The early history of the term remains undisputedly and indelibly linked to one of the biggest guitar heroes of all time.
However, in the years since, the word “brown” in reference to guitar tone has gone on to become an independent part of everyday guitar lexicon. It now embodies, in a single word, the perfect electric guitar tone.
What exactly does BROWN mean though? How does a guitar tone refer to sounding like a colour?
