Ok, so as an update, I returned the Katana 50 today. The sound I was getting was too inconsistent and not great, still felt like a toy amp to me. I had a decent low volume high gain and clean tone going but the mid gain tones were not great and all of them fell apart at any real volume so why struggle with something I wouldn't want to use with a band anyway. I'm thinking THR should be next, I remember liking the one I borrowed. I just need to decide on which one to get, hopefully the older ones will be cheaper with v2 coming soon.
