Bass players rejoice: the incredible sound and flexibility of the BOSS Katana series has entered the low-end realm with the Katana-210 Bass Combo Amp! This 160-watt, 2 x 10-inch combo serves as an all-in-one bass amp for both stage and studio use, with a trio of amp types alongside powerful tone-shaping tools to nail any sound imaginable. With the Katana-210 Bass combo's built-in Comp and Drive controls, you can leave the pedals at home, with FX1/FX2 controls unlocking an even wider range of BOSS-inspired effects. And while this amp packs more than enough power to handle small- to mid-sized venues, onboard attenuation in the form of a Power Control takes you down to 1-watt operation for quieter playing without tonal compromises, as well as a cab-sim-equipped USB and Phones/Rec Out for silent practice sessions. Pair this impressive combo with the BOSS Tone Studio editor, and your sonic options become near limitless — anchor your bass setup with the ultra-versatile BOSS Katana-210 Bass Combo Amp!
Much like the Katana line's other offerings, the BOSS Katana-210 Bass places a strong emphasis on versatility, arming you with three unique amp voicings alongside a wealth of tone-shaping tools and effects. Swapping between voicings is a cinch, with a single knob going from the full-bodied warmth of Vintage to the punch and clarity of Modern and even a Flat option allowing your instrument's organic tone to shine through. Once you find that ideal amp type, a powerful Shape function toggles between three distinct tone characters — mid-scoop, bright, and extended range — with a Pad button next door for some attenuation if need be. Need some additional sonic tweaking? A 4-band EQ with selectable low- and high-mid frequency controls is fully prepared to fine-tune your tone with surgical precision.
Apart from its studio- and stage-worthy tone, the Katana-210 Bass boasts a quartet of independent effect sections for adding some additional depth and character to your sound. Its Input EFX section sports Comp and Drive buttons with a single knob to dial in the perfect amount of compression and saturation. Music Experience bassists appreciate the convenience of having these critical tools built right in, made even better with an expansive Effects section that accesses a wide range of additional stomp-style effects for crafting your signature sound.
While the Katana-210 Bass offers a Power Control for getting cranked-amp tone at a low volume level, you can achieve truly silent operation onstage or in the studio. Cab emulation is available via the USB and headphone/recording output. However you choose to monitor your Katana-210 Bass, it'll feel like you're standing in front of an amp.
The Katana-210 Bass supports a variety of timeless BOSS effects, with deep customization to further enhance and define your sound using the BOSS Tone Studio software. Simply connect the Katana-210 Bass to your computer via USB, load up Tone Studio, and you're well on your way to creating your own setup. Need some inspiration? Download any of the premade setups created by pro guitarists for a solid tonal starting point. Best of all, the Katana-210 Bass can store multiple custom amp and effects profiles for instant recall, making this combo a versatile multichannel amplifier.
Crafted with the breakthrough design philosophy behind the acclaimed Katana guitar amp series, the Katana-110 Bass delivers premium sound and advanced features perfectly tuned for the needs of serious bassists. Three unique amp characters and onboard BOSS effects provide a wide range of tones, backed by a stage-ready, 60-watt class AB power amp, custom 10-inch woofer, and tweeter with on/off switch. And with comprehensive EQ, flexible connectivity, and more, the Katana-110 Bass is ready to take on any playing situation, from stage to studio to everyday practice at home.
The Katana-110 Bass brings you high-performance amplification fueled by decades of BOSS knowledge and expertise. Armed with 60 watts of time-tested class AB power, this gig-ready amp provides big volume, punch, and presence and smooth, natural drive as you turn up the gain. Three unique preamp types are also available—each with a powerful three-way Shape switch to fine-tune the character—so you’ll always have the perfect sound for any style or genre. Vintage—A classic tube voice with organic tone and natural drive. Flat—Smooth, clear, and dynamic tone with rich harmonic character. Modern—Quick dynamic response with extended bass range.
With its custom-designed speaker system and rock-solid combo cabinet, the Katana-110 Bass produces a commanding voice to drive your band in any musical situation. The fundamental tone of the 10-inch woofer is complemented with a tweeter for high-frequency definition that’s ideal for slap and other modern playing styles. Our efficient bi-amp design delivers clear and balanced sound, and the tweeter can be turned off with a panel switch for a more traditional bass tone if desired.
The Katana series is famous for its onboard BOSS effects, and the Katana-110 Bass is no exception. Dedicated comp/limiter and drive sections provide core processing, while FX1 and FX2 offer a treasure trove of options from the BOSS bass effects library, from standards like chorus and flanger to octave, bass synth, and more. The FX2 section also includes delay and reverb, and over 60 total effect types are available for loading via the BOSS Tone Studio editor.
With the intuitive panel controls on the Katana-110 Bass, you can quickly refine your tone in detail. The studio-inspired Blend section lets you mix in some dry signal, which you can pre-shape from the panel with three customizable settings for the optimum tonal fusion. A comprehensive four-band EQ is also on hand, complete with three selectable frequency centers in the low-mid and high-mid bands.
The flexible Katana-110 Bass is your perfect partner for any live gig. Six Tone Setting memories are available for storing and recalling the sounds you create, including preamp type, EQ, Blend, and effect settings. You can switch memories from the panel and go even further with optional footswitches, an expression pedal, and the GA-FC Foot Controller. There’s also a balanced XLR output for connecting to a house PA, along with a switch to select between direct, pre, or post signals.
The Katana-110 Bass is equally suited for studio recording and home playing. The compact footprint takes up minimal space, and the variable Power Control lets you dial up cranked-amp tones at family-friendly volume levels. A headphones/recording jack provides a direct output with effects and mic’d cab emulation with three Air Feel settings, while USB lets you interface with computer production software and track with great tone.
To shape sounds with even finer control, reach deep into the heart of the Katana 110 Bass with the BOSS Tone Studio editor. Adjust preamp, EQ, and Blend settings, call up and tweak over 60 BOSS effects, and organize sounds in Live Sets for different gigs. You can also shape the overall amp response with powerful global EQs and fine-tune system settings like Air Feel, USB, and more. And by connecting an optional BOSS Bluetooth® Audio MIDI Dual Adaptor to the rear panel, you can wirelessly adjust settings on the gig from your iOS or Android mobile device.
