Boss it
SekiMagoroku5, 06.09.2020
As guitar player, a small practice amp is a must when a time and space was limited. Check a bunch of review on this guy, but yeah, sometimes reviewer like to exaggerating thing, so im actually 70% convince. I had to try it since its sounds good, but will i like it?. Yes, i super like it.

Pros-
-As one of reviewer says, it really is worlds biggest smaller amp.
-Speaker sounds fantastic. It really does
-Simple feature but all you needed (im a demanded guy actually, Tone knob only doesnt satisfy me, minimum must have 3-band EQ.
-That JC CLEAN, that Boss pedal CRUNCH, that saturated BROWN channel. Happy happy me.
-Its loud enough, and speaker sim does sounds great.
-Take pedals really well, even mfx unit.
-Feather weight, easy to carry around.
-The most important for me, yeah, it does handle 7-strings like a boss.

Cons-
-Plastic all around (well built though)

Basically, if you need a great practice amp. This amp is a great choice. Especially if you're seven stringers like me..For the price, its unbeatable. I've already try bunch of small practice amps mind you..

Amazing Practice Amp
Miguel-Rock, 08.08.2018
I have heard a lot about Katana's, so I gave this guy a try when I was looking for a practice amp for a small apartment. I was a great surprise!! I could not be more happy. It has a really nice clear sound, and great volume. But what surprised me it was the overdriven sounds. For low volumes, it truly delivers a nice round warm overdriven sound, that makes you enjoy practicing. Its really simple to use, and even have some on-board effects for even more fun while playing.

Pros:
-Quality of construction: Well manufacturer, clear connections, and very robust, yet lightweight.
-The size: Very portable, fits on a drawer, an can run on batteries.
-The sound: Amazing sounds!!. I had other practice amps, and even when the clean sound are good, the overdrives are usually, well, not enjoyable . However, this one delivers a great and playable overdriven sound, at lower volumes. I have valve amps, so I am very "picky" for the overdrive sounds, and this ones delivers . Obviously in the context of a practice amp.

Cons:
- I enjoy playing so much, that I wish it would have extra effects like the bigger brothers =)

To get some context of my overdriven preferences, I like rock and heavy rock, but I am not into a really heavy overdriven sound . I had played mostly Marshall JCM. I have not use the amp with external pedals, live overdrives or other distortion, so I could not made a comment on that.

Small and feisty
mirco.san, 19.03.2021
This is a little beast. I took it out of the box thinking that something was a-miss... It weighs nothing. Then, while I was putting the batteries in (yes, it's battery powered, but you can also buy a power supply, which I did), I was chuckling like a little kid. It reminded me of a toy train or something.

Finally I plugged in the guitar, turned few knobs, did the clean test, not bad at all, turned few other knobs, put it in crunch and... WHAM! Then switched to brown and... KaBOOM!

Seriously, this is certainly a practice amp, but it is a super fun practice amp.

PROS:
- sounds good in every mode. The delay is a bit of a gimmick, but I did not play with it too much. EQ is ok.
- the plastic does not look cheap.

CONS:
- cannot think of any at this price and for what it is: a practice amp.

Cool sound in a tiny box
SwampAsh, 11.12.2020
All in all: don't assume this is a joke. It is a surprisingly great sound for a cheap and small amp, and I use it for teaching (I let my students use my Kemper and I use this!). It has basically everything you need for a tiny portable amplifier—great tones from clean to heavily overdriven, I tend to find the 'crunch' setting with gain just over half way a nice classic sound. I slightly wish that the delay was reverb instead, but if you set a short delay time you will get a room-like effect (like a very short slapback delay), and of course with a longer delay you can have fun lead sounds—I understand the product decision, it is more flexible than reverb.
