Boss has unveiled the Katana:GO – a tiny headphone amp that packs the same Katana tones found on its best-selling amp range into an ultra-portable jack unit.

Boss quickly silenced the doubters, though, and the Katana line has become much-admired for the quality of its tones – and one of the most popular practice amp choices in the process.
