NAMM 2018: BOSS Katana Air - The First Completely Wireless Guitar Amplifier
The Boss Katana Air Wireless Guitar Amplifier is the latest product to be released by Boss at CES 2018. It builds on the popular series of Boss Katana Guitar Amplifiers and, for the first time, provides guitarists with the ability (in a single package) to go completely wireless; with no power cables and no guitar cable!
The Boss Katana Air is a battery-powered guitar amplifier that includes its own wireless transmitter to plug into your guitar and allows you to play completely cable-free. The amp is highly compact yet has a huge range of sounds to play with. To further enhance the wireless experience, the Katana-Air comes with Bluetooth connectivity, meaning you can stream music directly from your smartphone.
The amplifier has premium tones from Boss's popular Katana series of guitar amplifiers, with 5 types of amplifier available and access to over 50 world-class BOSS effects. 6 memory slots allow you to save your favourite amplifier/effect combinations, while the powerful 30-watt stereo speakers (20w in battery mode) deliver the perfect level of guitar volume for practice and music playback.
The Katana Air's clever wireless guitar transmitter gives up to 12 hours of playing time on a single charge, and docks onto the amplifier when not in use. It also enters standby mode when there is no activity, switching back on automatically when motion is detected; meaning you'll conserve battery life for the longest time possible.
The amplifier also has headphone/recording out for silent practice and music production. It features easy tone adjustments meaning you can get set up in no time at all and create inspiring sounds for practice and song writing.
The built-in wireless guitar transmitter/receiver is a very nice feature – we've not seen an amplifier that is so easy to get set up and running, let alone one with the fantastic range of Katana Series tones and effects. This amplifier is an ideal unit for practicing or for taking to locations where there is no mains power – jamming on the beach anyone...?
