    Been looking into the 100W combo or Head.. I play with some loud as f**k guys and my 15W Laney just dissapears. I just want something gig worthy for a cheaper price. At home I use my Helix but it will stay in my desk, so thats my main amp if you will, my money is spent there :p
    I have the Laney 1x12 and maybe the head with that will do the trick? Im only going to be playing high gain metal stuff. At the practice room theres a spare 4x12 i can play through.
    And hauling a 1x12 and a katana head seems like a fairly reasonable weight.
    Anyone using them for gigs?

    It's loud enough to gig with for sure. Just make sure your cab is 8ohms. I notice quite a loss of volume if I use a 16ohm cab.

    Well I guess I ended up with the head!
    I traded in a Mim Strat I never play anymore (since I got a tele) and got the Katana for like 20EUR or something like that, which was nice :)

    I downloaded the Tone Studio and it wont install... I'll fiddle with that another day!

    What's the best way to go about with recording straight from the amp with this amp?

    I have the Katana 100 and I want to record into Ableton Live on Windows 10, but if I record with the USB output then I have to go into the settings of Ableton and change the audio device from the Katana to my audio interface every time I want to be able to listen to what I've recorded.

    If I run a cable from the line out on the amp to the line in on my audio interface then I get a ton of noise and I don't know where it's coming from. Am I missing out on something here, or can it just be that I have the wrong settings on the amp, or a bad cable from the amp to the audio interface or something like that?

    I'd like boss to release a "waza brown" distortion pedal(preferbly MDP branded and not waza branded haha save me $$) This waza brown setting on the katana and waza amps sounds great to me.
    That's the cool thing about these amps to me... new fantastic sounding distortion.
