Description & Specs

Katana-Air EX is a powerhouse wireless desktop amp that delivers big stereo sound and authentic Katana tones in a compact footprint. With twin five-inch speakers, a custom wood cabinet, and 35 watts max power, this everyday practice companion dishes rich, resonant tones that rival amps much larger in size. A large variety of onboard amp characters and effects support every musical style, and you can customize setups and enhance daily sessions with the companion BOSS Tone Studio app for iOS and Android. And thanks to advanced BOSS wireless technology, you have complete freedom to move around with no instrument cable to trip you up.

Stage-Class Sound in a Desktop Amp
Katana-Air EX has been engineered to provide an authentic stage-style playing experience in a desktop size. Two custom five-inch speakers are loaded into a carefully designed wood cabinet, generating full sound with rich resonance typically only available with performance amplifiers. Punchy, high-definition tones give you an inspiring platform for honing natural techniques that seamlessly translate to a stage amp setup. The tuned bass-reflex port further increases this amp’s versatility, ensuring a tight bottom-end response for low-tuned guitar riffs and electric bass practice.

Premium Katana Amps and Effects
Katana-Air EX comes loaded with sounds derived from the Katana stage amplifiers, dialed in for maximum expression with its desktop cabinet. Five unique amp characters provide tones from sparkling clean to BOSS’s custom high-gain Brown sound, along with a dedicated character for acoustic-electric guitar and bass. You also get access to over 60 BOSS effects, including a wide selection of overdrives, distortions, and boosters, plus mod, delay, and reverb effects optimized for the amp’s stereo speaker system. And with six onboard memories, you can store your favorite amp and effects setups for instant recall.

High-Performance BOSS Wireless Technology
BOSS’s acclaimed digital wireless guitar technology is at the heart of Katana-Air EX, providing transparent sound and lightning-fast response without any lag or dropouts. The included transmitter offers up to 12 hours of playing time per charge, and the integrated motion sensor and standby function conserve energy when the system is idle. This allows you to keep the transmitter plugged in between sessions and turn the system on just by picking up your instrument. When it’s time to charge, simply connect the transmitter to the amp’s convenient docking port.  

Wireless Foot Control with the EV-1-WL and FS-1-WL
The optional EV-1-WL Wireless MIDI Expression Pedal and FS-1-WL Wireless Footswitch expand the Katana-Air EX experience, letting you remotely operate functions you assign in the BOSS Tone Studio mobile app. Control volume and wah, change patches, and trigger the app’s practice tools—all with a cable-free connection. Learn more at the EV-1-WL and FS-1-WL product pages.

Versatile Features for Practice, Recording, and Performance
The highly versatile Katana-Air EX flows with all your musical journeys. Built-in Bluetooth® lets you wirelessly edit sounds with the BOSS Tone Studio app and play along with songs streamed from your mobile device. For fresh inspiration, log onto BOSS Tone Exchange to explore sounds created by other users. You can also record tracks directly to computer music software via USB and use the stereo line output with mic’d cab emulation for live performances in direct-to-PA setups. Going further, Katana-Air EX does double duty as a high-quality portable Bluetooth speaker for relaxing and enjoying tunes from your music library.  

Build Skills Faster with Powerful Session Tools
Along with its editing features, the BOSS Tone Studio app comes with integrated tools to supercharge daily practice with YouTube video content. Create song lists for quick recall and loop sections for focused study. And when you want to jam with backing tracks and songs, automatic memory switching takes the experience to a new level. Set a clean sound for the verse, crunch for the chorus, and high-gain drive with echo for your solo—and they’ll all change at spots you determine as the video plays. It’s even possible to save your custom switching setups with the BOSS Tone Exchange community.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
