Boss’s Katana amps have been hugely well-received - not least by us - so we’re pleased to see the announcement of a compact version, the Katana Mini.
According to Boss, the seven-watt Mini’s sound quality “far exceeds other amps in its class”, and features a multi-stage analogue gain circuit, plus traditional analogue EQ and onboard tape-style delay.
Three channels are available - brown, crunch and clean - and a cab sim-enabled phones/recording output promises convincing recording tones - an aux in jack is on hand for
A single four-inch speaker outputs the tones, and the whole thing can run from six AA batteries or a power supply.
The Katana Mini is available from August for the astoundingly affordable sum of £99/$99. We’d wager that could snag it a place in our buyer’s guide of the best budget guitar amps…
