Don't recommend it. It is not well supported by BOSS. The tone studio is temperamental and all tone studio patches for the Katana 50,100,& Head are not compatible with the AIR tone studio . Went back to the 50 and am more than satisfied. Had it for 3 months.

First I heard this at the guitar show in Regina.Wow I was impressed on the sound.Very user friendly.I approch this amp a little differently.I look at it as a working tool.No need to turn on my tube amps at home.This little guy sounds great.Wireless to boot.I brought to a studio recording it was amazingly easy to get a clear tone.Now,I can bring this camping as we all jam in the woods.I recommend this product as a tool for any musician.Its worth every penny.This has opened my eyes a little more .As I have been a tube amp guy for over 40 years.Gave my line 6 to my son lol.Still love my tube amps .

Just bought this little amp yesterday at the Kanata store,after reading reviews and looking at the features-wireless from the guitar to the amp via Bluetooth,wireless power via 8 AA batteries(or plug in the wall). It comes as advertised-plug or play unplugged,either way it sounds amazing-surprisingly good volume & the effects make it sound like a Marshall stack. I have just started playing with it and will discover more tones and cool stuff,but I highly recommend this toy,a little pricey but worth the $$..
