The Boss sounds good, Kinda Watsony..Love the Stromberg-Carlson!Greetings.... thought I'd post a head's up on the new Boss Katana amps in regards to the West Coast sound. I picked up the 50 watt combo last week & have been getting some decent results. There's a huge thread on them in the Amps section, but I believe it's a solid state amp that's being controlled/manipulated by a digital processor. (it's not a modeling amp) For example, when you roll your volume knob back, the chip tells the power section to clean up etc. I'm no expert on the tech part, but this thing really does respond like a tube amp. More so than my Quilter... and the on board effects are great too, at least the ones I use. (reverb. term & delay) The first clip is my Tele and the Boss amp set for some breakup & a bit of Holmstrom style analog delay. For comparison, the second clip is my H62 thru an old Stromberg-Carlson PA amp. So far, I'm digging' mine. It's light weight, loud & cheap!
