Great Sound & Reliable Amp
Good For Gigs
This is one of the latest products from Boss it features 50watts of power and a custom 12inch speaker it would be ideal for a musician on the move
What We Think
This amp is a fantastic piece of kit and the positive comments from all the customers that have bought one is a testament to it. The amp itself looks great but the sound it produces from its custom 12” speaker is awesome!
For a 50watt amp it’s still loud enough to gig and so easy to use. The clean tones are so natural and crisp and the rock tones are floor shaking but what do you expect from an amp that is loaded with all of Boss’ flagship effects. You can also customise the effects when you connect to the BOSS tone studio editor software via USB.
What more could any guitarist want from an amp? And the price is surprisingly low for such a versatile amp.

The amp has got 5 different amp styles that you can choose from:
So once you have chosen your amp sound and set your EQ (Bass, Middle, Treble) you can choose the effects you want to run. The amp has got effects on board but you also have access to 55 other effects through the BOSS tone studio app. You can connect your amp to your computer via USB and then upload the specific effect you want on the amp and save it as a preset. A maximum of 3 effects can run simultaneously but you can choose what those effects will be. If you want simple drive, chorus and reverb you can do so. But if you want to be more experimental by combining ring mod with a slicer then you can set that up with the Tone Studio.
It has 2 memory slots for you to save you favourite sounds and quickly recall them. For example, you could load up a mild rhythm overdrive on tone slot 1 and a screaming lead with loads of delay on tone slot 2.
The power scaling is an idea borrowed from the Katanas Blues Cube brother where you choose if you want the amp to run at 50w for full volume and power or down to 0.5w for late night bedroom use. It makes the amp really useful if you want 1 unit that can do band practices, as well use it at home without waking the neighbours. And because it has a 12" speaker, you can play with a band without losing too much low end or worrying about your guitar sounding too thin in the mix.
