    See there, taking a pic with my phone is not a natural reflex for me. But the idea of keeping an outside record is good. I'd be more inclined to take notes. A list of numbers. I might just do that. Thanks.

    Must be generational.

    Not really. When I recorded an EP using a Peavey Windsor half stack, I kept detailed records of each setting used in case I had to change or re-record a part, so each song and the whole project would sound consistent.

    There were many production problems with that EP, but inconsistent guitar tone was not one of them. :rofl:

    Thinking about getting one of these and messing with the sneaky amps. It'll void the warrenty, but eh, I think it will be cool to go between a tweed and a marshall with a footswitch :naughty:

    Will it void the warranty ?
    I never really thought about it...

    In any case it does give you access to some good starting points to tweak and get some really good useable tones.

    Enjoy.

    I'm pretty sure it won't void the warranty. The models are already in the amp's software. Even if you messed around with them, a factory reset would undo it all.

    Frankly, I didn't find any of them other than the Marshall 1959 I+II model to be worth the time. Set Katana to crunch and leave it, I say. :dude:

    No warranty voidage. As others have said, a factory reset will clear any sneaky amp shenanigans.

    Man although I have been playing a lot my Blackstar HT40MKII, there is no question the Katana is a Keeper. Amazing tone flexibility, best solid state modeling amp up to this day. Sorry, line six and sorry Marshall CODE Series.

    Good for almost anything, I'd say.

    There are so many pedals and patches (official and unofficial) you'll find a sound you like.

    Should be able to dial Black Sabbath at any era. Plus the benefit of any other band tone you may like. It has a fairly small learning curve but you can dial almost anything.
