Boss KTN-ART2HD Katana-Artist MkII 100 Watt Guitar Amplifier Head

Ultimate Katana Tone in a Powerful Amplifier Head

The Katana-Artist MkII Head brings you the premium sound and features of the flagship Katana-Artist MkII combo in a powerful 100-watt amplifier head. Cover any style with five amp characters and five variations, and color your tones with a wide range of onboard BOSS effects. Shape your voice with exclusive panel controls, including a three-way Contour switch, Global EQs, an adjustable Solo boost with dedicated delay, and five selectable Air Feel settings.

Powerhouse Amplification for Pro Stage Performers

The Katana-Artist MkII Head comes equipped with all the core features of its acclaimed combo sibling. Five unique amp characters and five variations provide 10 different tone options, while five simultaneous effects categories put the sound-shaping power of a massive pedalboard right inside your amp. And with BOSS Tone Studio, you can customize the onboard effects with over 60 different types and dive deep into internal parameters to craft your personal sound.

Loud and Proud

Command the stage with massive tones by connecting one or two external speaker cabs. The Katana Cabinet212 Waza is perfectly tuned for the Katana-Artist MkII experience, providing the ultimate rock voice in a 2x12 configuration loaded with custom Waza speakers. Developed by BOSS, these speakers deliver the authentic response and character of the benchmark 25-watt British stack speaker from the 1960s while boosting the power capacity to 100 watts. Cabinets can be stacked to create a clean 4x12 setup, and the versatile design features a removable panel for closed-back or open-back operation.

Deep Tone-Shaping Tools

On the front panel, you’ll find exclusive features only available with the Katana-Artist MkII models. A three-way Contour switch lets you shape the amp's core tone, while three Global EQ settings are great for fine-tuning the overall sound for different guitars and styles. A foot-controllable, post-amp Solo boost function is also available, with a panel knob for fast adjustment plus dedicated delay and EQ that can be assigned in BOSS Tone Studio.
