I'm set on actual guitar amps for rock n roll and whatever else, but a new project has / had me needing an actual acoustic amp rig for acoustic plugged in gigs. Really didn't want to tie up more money in an amp that will be used sparingly. A moment of clarity resulted and I thought about the fact that most all acoustic amps are solid state deals, so what about that much maligned Katana? would it? could it? Turns out it can and it does, in spades...best part is you can buy those things used for about the price of a pedal. I found a near brand spankin' new Katana 50 watt 1x12 combo for $125 on Craigslist and will say for what it will be used for and how good it sounds with my acoustic its the score of the year.....I've owned a couple actual nicer acoustic amps prior and this $125 bargain is easily on par with them. Set it in the acoustic amp or even the clean setting and its straight up awesome. Only thing lacking is a direct out to be used to a soundboard but I can just mic it. This amp is worth it for the acoustic feature alone, especially on the used market. Blown away.
