Flagship 100-Watt Amp Head
Boss - Katana Artist Head Gen 3

Boss Katana Artist Gen 3

The Ultimate Katana Experience, Evolved With Katana Gen 3, the acclaimed BOSS stage amplifier series evolves to take your guitar ambitions to the next level. The flagship Katana Artist Head Gen 3 brings you the ultimate Katana experience, offering 100 watts of Class AB power and a host of advanced tone tools.

New Tube Logic enhancements enrich the core platform with even greater sound, feel, and response, including an expressive Pushed amp character and a unique Bloom option that revoices the amp’s feel and response. BOSS Tone Studio has also been updated, making your editing workflow more intuitive than ever.

Katana Gen 3: Inspiration UnboundBacked by our advanced Tube Logic amplifier architecture and reactive Class AB power, the BOSS Katana series has become a standard for guitarists everywhere since its introduction in 2016. Katana amps embody decades of BOSS development knowledge, providing professional, tube-inspired sound coupled with modern advantages like onboard effects, one-touch memory recall, deep sound customization, and reduced weight.

Katana Gen 3 elevates the lineup with even more range and versatility, bringing you a playing experience that goes where no other amps can.

Meet the MomentKatana Artist Head Gen 3 supports up to two speaker cabs to take on every performance need. Carefully constructed and loaded with dual Waza speakers, the robust Katana Cabinet 212 Waza is perfectly tuned to maximize the head’s full potential. These custom BOSS speakers deliver the true character and response of the famous ’60s 25-watt British stack speaker with modern power handling capacity.

Cabinets can be stacked to create a 4x12 setup, and the versatile design features a removable panel for closed-back or open-back sound.

• Flagship 100-watt amplifier head with advanced tone tools and a custom cabinet design
• Six amp characters—including the newly developed Pushed type—plus a selectable variation for each
• Bloom switch engages a dedicated circuit that revoices the amp’s feel and response
• Five independent effects sections: Booster, Mod, FX, Delay, and Reverb
• Solo section with dedicated level boost and delay effect
• Three Cabinet Resonance options: Vintage, Modern, and Deep

• Companion Katana Cabinet 212 Waza with two 12-inch Waza speakers

Refined Tube Logic Tones

Boss - Katana-100 Gen 3

classic tube amp designsTube Logic recreates tube circuitry and all its complex interactions at a component level. Our approach continues to evolve with refinements to the five amp characters available in previous Katana models, including the iconic high-gain Brown type. The new Pushed character spotlights internal dynamic enhancements with the touch-responsive gain of a driven clean combo. All six amp characters also include a variation for 12 distinctive tones.

Going further, the Bloom switch engages a dedicated circuit that introduces a totally different amp feel. The sound comes alive with a sharper attack and a richly dynamic low-end response, two characteristics that are difficult to achieve at once.

“Sweet Spot” Sound at Any VolumeAs every tube amp lover knows, the sound becomes richer, fuller, and more responsive as you turn up the volume. Unfortunately, it also gets way too loud for many playing situations. An external power attenuator is a common solution, but it can introduce artifacts that color the amp’s tone and feel.

The integrated Power Control in Katana Gen 3 delivers the best of all worlds, letting you dial in cranked-amp inspiration with no adverse effect on the sound. Just turn the panel knob to transparently harness the level for everything from live stage playing to daily bedroom jams.

Famous BOSS Effects

Boss - Katana-100 Gen 3

essential selections from the historic BOSS libraryKatana Artist Head Gen 3 features five simultaneous effect categories loaded with essential selections from the historic BOSS library. Booster, Mod, FX, Delay, and Reverb sections offer enhanced sound quality and access to 15 unique effects.

There’s also a dedicated Solo section with a level boost and delay effect. BOSS Tone Studio unlocks additional possibilities, allowing you to customize the onboard effects from 60 different types and tweak deep options not available from the amp’s panel. And when the optional Bluetooth® Audio MIDI Dual Adaptor is installed, you can wirelessly edit sounds on the gig using the BTS editor app on your smartphone.Unrivaled Sound ShapingBOSS Tone Studio for Katana Gen 3 offers new visual enhancements and graphic customization options that make crafting your tone faster and more intuitive.
