BOSS have treated NAMM 2018 to an early glimpse of the brand new Katana-Air, a totally wireless amplification solution for guitarists of all genres.
Boasting the impressive ability to run off eight AA batteries, the Katana-Air features the futuristic addition of low latency wireless technology and a custom wireless transmittor compatible with all electric guitars. This essentially means that you can bring the Katana-Air in its wireless form absolutely everywhere, allowing musicians to write, jam and rehearse without any cables whatsoever. In addition, you can play along with audio streamed via Bluetooth and remotely edit effects and tones from BOSS' dedicated Tone Studio app.
With five channels on hand, versatility is highlighted with the Katana-Air, complete with integrated access to over 50 effects and the ability to save your six favourite amp/effect combinations. Specs-wise, the Katana-Air features two custom tuned speakers pulling from 30 watts of power (20 if you're running batteries), as well as a docking port in the amp to charge your wireless transmitter, allowing for up to 12 hours of continuous playback.
If that's not enough, the Katana-Air also features an environmentally friendly standby mode to conserve energy when idle, which instantly wakes up when it senses motion. It looks like BOSS might have created the ultimate wireless practice tool with the Katana-Air - keep your eyes peeled for when it hits shelves in the near future.
