BOSS announced in the mid of July the availability of the Katana-Air, the world’s first totally wireless guitar amplifier.
High-performance wireless technology from BOSS
Compact and battery-powered, the Katana-Air features new low-latency digital wireless guitar technology developed by BOSS, providing transparent sound and ultra-quick response without any lag or dropouts. The included compact wireless transmitter plugs into various kinds of electric guitars. It also has indicators for power and battery status.
This gives players the freedom to jam and practice anywhere without fussing with guitar cables or AC connections. It’s also possible to play along with audio streamed via Bluetooth® from an iOS or Android smartphone. It is also possible remotely edit tones and effects from the dedicated BOSS Tone Studio app.
Equipped with the same sound-shaping features found in the Katana Version 2 amplifiers, the Katana-Air delivers premium tones for all styles of music. Five channels provide a wide range of sounds, from sparkling clean to BOSS’s custom high-gain Brown sound. There’s also integrated access to over 50 BOSS effects, plus six memories for storing favorite amp and effects setups.
The Katana-Air is a true stereo amplifier. It has two custom-tuned speakers and up to 30 watts of total power. It offers big, rich sound for both guitar amplification and full-range music reproduction. The Amplifier powered by eight AA-size batteries or included AC adapter. A convenient docking port in the amp charges the battery in the included wireless transmitter, providing up to 12 hours of continuous playing time per charge.
Katana-Air enables music production and silent practice
The Katana-Air also includes a stereo headphones/recording output with guitar cabinet simulation. This lets you directly record pro-quality amp tones and effects in music production software, and enjoy inspiring stereo sound when practicing quietly with headphones. It’s even possible to adjust the cab simulation’s mic position with the Air Feel control in the BOSS Tone Studio app.
Katana-Air is always ready to play
Even more, the Katana-Air is always ready to play. It operates in standby mode to conserve energy when idle, and instantly wakes when it senses motion. In addition, the transmitter automatically establishes the optimum wireless connection when docked, with no user operation required.
The Katana-Air wireless guitar amplifier is available for a U.S. price of $399.99. To learn more, visit Boss.info.
