I bought a new amp in the early fall. I had used the same amp (A Yamaha G100 112 III since 86) It was heavy then and it got heavier.
But St.John’s Music had a few of the Katanas in stock. I dropped in to test drive one and they seem pretty cool. The store did not have a 7 string to pump through it but I bought it anyways, with the understanding I could bring it back within a week if I didn’t like it.
Well I still have it!
Below is a video review of the amp and accessories and a little demo of my patches.
In a nutshell:
- it works great
- you really need to use the USB interface to edit tones with any nuance
- great string separation
- great bass sounds
- great effects options.
- light and compact
