Boss Introduces the Katana-Air EX Wireless Amp

Boss Katana-Air EX Wireless Amp

Boss has added a new model to their Katana amp series with the Katana-Air EX Wireless Amp. The new desktop amp, which is suited for bass or guitar, builds on the lineup with 35 watts of power for increased fullness and projection as well as new recording and performance options.

“Katana-Air EX has been engineered to provide an authentic stage-style playing experience in a desktop size,” Boss writes. “Two custom five-inch speakers are loaded into a carefully designed wood cabinet, generating full sound with rich resonance typically only available with performance amplifiers. Punchy, high-definition tones offer an inspiring platform for honing natural techniques, while the tuned bass-reflex port ensures tight bottom-end response for low-tuned guitar riffs and electric bass practice.”

The Katana-Air EX has five amp characters built-in: Brown, Lead, Crunch, Clean, and Acoustic/Bass. It also boasts 60 Boss effects on board, six memory slots for storing your settings, and a built-in USB audio interface for music production. Its compact wireless transmitter has up to 12 hours of runtime and charges in an integrated port on the amp. Other features include compatibility with the Boss Tone Studio mobile app, analog and Bluetooth aux inputs, and battery or adaptor power.

The Boss Katana-Air EX is out now for $599.99.
