    True. I swapped out the SICA 15” speaker, 4 ohm that was in the Huff Cab. The Big Ben is 8 ohm. It works for me, as I play a lot of electric guitar / pedal board / amp or DI.

    My friend Cal Scott made some beautiful dumble patches. I made a video for him.

    Just curious, are you joining these guys?

    But seriously, I can’t help you with your request. I’d personally leave the forest to emit its natural forest sounds and not disturb it.

    Super late to the game here, tried a Katana Artist 50 combo at GC the other day. Plugged a $150 Epi SG into it on the lowest wattage setting. The Brown setting with gain below 9 o'clock was really good. Spot on Angus Young on a budget. I don't remember eq settings but I'm sure I had the mids on full and bass below noon. Treble and presence to taste, generally I vary those with volume. NO FX or Reverb, yuck. I could gig that setting anywhere, as good as any modeler I've tried including my AX8. Clean was quite good too. Didn't much care for the other modes, but brown and clean were all I'd need.

    Saved my Brown settings to every preset switch, so the next kid could could experience great tone :)

    I typically like and own tube amps from old designs. Recently at guitar center I was turned on to this amp. The guy playing it was getting great tonez

    For anyone with a DYI interest of a 4 button footswitch for the K50, check out the users group on facebook. Code and build info provided.
    Free Boss Katana Patches is the group name. Cool of the bloke to share it. Might do something similar for the K100 if I get around to it. I'd kinda like to have instant access to 6 presets vs the current setup.

    ah shoot, don't quote me on that. It said Artist for sure and looked like a 1x12. Whatever they've been making I'm sure it was that

    Haha no worries. The Artist is actually 100w, but has a 50w setting.

    I picked a Katana 100w up the other day and I'm pleasantly suprised. You can get some great tones with the Tone Studio. Perfect practice/home amp and I could easily gig with this.

    Only thing I want to try is another speaker. Just to make sure it's an 8ohm correct?

    Yes thanks so much!

    I really am loving this amp! The Dumble and the Plexi/TubeScreamer patches are amazing!
