Roland BOSS KATANA:GO Personal Headphone Guitar & Bass Amplifier w/ 60 Fully Editable BOSS FX

Katana in Your Pocket

Compact, convenient, and loaded with tone, KATANA:GO is an essential companion for daily jams with your guitar or bass. This powerhouse headphone amp puts authentic sounds from the stage-class Katana amp series at your instrument’s output jack, paired with a host of wireless music streaming, sound editing, and learning tools on your smartphone. Advanced spatial technology provides a rich 3D playing experience, while BOSS Tone Exchange offers an infinite sound library to explore any style. Whether you’re a developing hobbyist or a pro keeping up your chops, KATANA:GO keeps you inspired everywhere you play.

Instant Satisfaction

KATANA:GO delivers premium sound for everyday playing without the hassle of amps, pedals, and computer interfaces. Simply plug it in, connect earbuds or headphones, call up a memory, and start rocking. Onboard controls provide access to volume, memory selection, and other essential functions, and you can easily view the current memory and tuner with the built-in display. The rechargeable battery provides up to five hours of continuous playing time, and the integrated 1/4-inch plug folds down to create a pocket-size package that’s ready to travel anywhere.

Authentic Katana Tone

KATANA:GO drives your sessions with genuine sounds from the best-selling Katana stage amp series. Guitar mode features 10 unique amp characters, including clean, crunch, the high-gain BOSS Brown type, two characters optimized for acoustic/electric guitar, and more. There’s also a dedicated bass mode with Vintage, Modern, and Flat types directly ported from the Katana Bass amplifiers. Each mode includes a massive library of BOSS effects to explore, with deep sound customization available in the companion BOSS Tone Studio app for iOS and Android.

Immersive Stage Sound

The innovative Stage Feel feature in KATANA:GO provides an immersive playing experience realized with advanced BOSS spatial technology. Presets allow you to position the amp and backing music in different places in the sound field, giving the impression of playing with a backline on stage or jamming in a room with friends. It’s even possible to personalize the sound field with the intuitive tools in BOSS Tone Studio.

Limitless Inspiration

The guitar and bass modes in KATANA:GO each feature 30 memories that come loaded with ready-to-play sounds. Using BOSS Tone Studio, you can tweak the preset memories, create sounds from scratch, or import Tone Setting memories created with stage-class Katana guitar and bass amplifiers. The app also provides integrated access to BOSS Tone Exchange,* where you can download professionally curated Livesets and share sounds with the global BOSS community.

*Currently, only Livesets created by BOSS can be downloaded within the BOSS Tone Studio app. Support for downloading and sharing user content will be added in June 2024. You can access all user content features by visiting BOSS Tone Exchange with your web browser.

Jam, Practice, and Learn

With KATANA:GO and your smartphone, you have a complete mobile solution to supercharge daily practice. Warm up by jamming along with songs from your music library. Then tap into the powerful Session feature in BOSS Tone Studio to hone your chops with YouTube learning content. Build song lists to create an organized routine and loop sections for focused study. You can even set timestamps and have KATANA:GO switch memories automatically while playing with YouTube backing tracks!

Record and Stream

The versatile KATANA:GO also functions as a USB audio interface for music production and online content creation on a computer or mobile device. Record professional Katana tones in DAW software. Or connect to your favorite social media and video capture apps and share your fretboard skills with the world. In either application, you can employ the Stage Feel function to add depth and dimension to your instrument’s sound and backing music streamed via Bluetooth audio.

Wireless Foot Control

The optional EV-1-WL Wireless MIDI Expression Pedal and FS-1-WL Wireless Footswitch expand the KATANA:GO experience with remote control functions that you assign in BOSS Tone Studio. Control volume and wah, select memories, turn effects on/off, and more—all with a cable-free connection. Learn more at the EV-1-WL and FS-1-WL product pages.

    CPS Extended Warranty

    Warranty Information

    PROTECT YOUR PRODUCT WITH AN EXTENDED WARRANTY

    • Full Coverage from Date of Purchase
    • 100% Parts and Labor Coverage
    • Includes Accidental Damage
    • Includes Free Shipping
    • Up to 5 Years of Total Coverage

    Bananas has partnered with Consumer Priority Service (CPS) to offer extended warranties for your instruments. Simply add the CPS extended warranty by selecting the option on our product pages.

    Warranty FAQ

    DO I NEED AN EXTENDED WARRANTY?

    Most manufacturers limit their warranty periods to keep their product costs competitive. It should come as no surprise that most problems occur after the manufacturer’s warranty is over. If you are like most consumers, you don't want to deal with the inevitable problems surrounding repairs. Who do you call for service? Are they reliable? Is a handyman capable of performing a long lasting, reliable repair on your instrument?

    Ranked #1 Extended Warranty

    CPS provides top notch warranty protection for your purchases to ensure life and longevity. This means that they care about you and your product long after your purchase has been made. This warranty offers reliable, hassle-free, comprehensive parts and labor protection for your product.

    You Need to Prepare for These Issues Today

    Bananas is an Authorized Consumer Priority Service Dealer. This means that they care about you and your products long after the purchase date. You can easily extend your manufacturer's warranty for a possible total of 5 years from the date of purchase.

    CPS Warranties Offer Reliable Protection for Your Product

    By purchasing a CPS accidental damage plan, you’re guaranteed years of worry free operation from your new product.

    Is a CPS Warranty just an extension of the existing manufacturer’s warranty?

    Actually, it’s an upgrade to your existing manufacturer’s warranty. A CPS Warranty offers benefits that aren’t offered by manufacturers like accidental damage & free shipping to and from the repair facility.

    What’s the difference between a Replacement Plan and Repair Plan?

    A Replacement Plan is available for products under $150. If the product fails, you will receive a replacement through Bananas.

    A Repair Plan is for products over $150 and offers free repair coverage for your product any time during the life of your warranty. If we can’t fix it, we’ll replace it!

    How am I covered?

    For the Replacement Plan, your coverage provides for a one-time replacement of the covered product.

    For the Repair Plan, you are covered for a period of up to five years (depending on which plan you purchase). Benefits include parts and labor for required repairs on your product.

    When does my warranty coverage start?

    Coverage begins on the 31st calendar day from when you purchased your product.

    Can I transfer the Protection Plan to a new owner?

    Yes! CPS Warranties are transferable between owners.

    What if I Need to Return my Product?

    If you return your product, Bananas returns the money you paid for the product protection plan. Depending on how much time has passed since your purchase, CPS may issue a prorated refund.

    Is my product covered if it’s stolen or if I lose it?

    Unfortunately the CPS Warranty does not cover lost or stolen products.

    Is there a service fee?

    Zero dollar service fee for the Replacement Plans and the Repair Plans.

    HOW DO I FILE A CLAIM?
