Boss’s Katana amp range has given guitarists the ability to combine impressive amplification with some of their favorite Boss effects and sounds, and with the extra ability to tailor those sounds via downloadable software, all at an affordable price. A bass-specific version has been long awaited by lovers of the low-end, and we’ve got the 1x10” version of the new combos for review.

The Katana-110 Bass is a 60W combo bass amp with a 10-inch woofer and a tweeter, which deliver a wealth of tones via three preamp types – Vintage, Flat and Modern – and a bevy of onboard effects. A 160W 2x10 version, the Katana-210 Bass, is also available.
