Should you buy the Boss Katana 50 or 100? - Combo Amp Shootout
 
04:21
I got my hands on two versions of the Boss Katana to test. The 50 watt version of the new digital amp from Boss really impressed me but I wanted to know if the 100 watt version is worth the extra money. Katana Artist: https://www.thomann.de/intl/boss_katana_artist.htm?offid=1&affid=288 Katana 100: https://www.thomann.de/intl/boss_katana_100.htm?offid=1&affid=288 Katana 50: https://www.thomann.de/intl/boss_katana_50.htm?offid=1&affid=288 Both are light weight and pack a lot of DSP into tiny packages. Both feature 1 x 12 Inch speaker (although the 100w speaker is upgraded). With the 100 watt being only just a little bigger than the 50, I hope this video helps you decide.

Boss Katana 100 vs Artist Amp Shootout - Is the Katana Artist worth the extra?
 
10:22
Here's the video that you've all been badgering me about. The showdown, the versus battle! Old versus new, Katana vs Katana! The Artist - https://www.thomann.de/gb/boss_katana_artist.htm ?partner_id=25705 Katana Artist: https://www.thomann.de/intl/boss_katana_artist.htm?offid=1&affid=288 Katana 100: https://www.thomann.de/intl/boss_katana_100.htm?offid=1&affid=288 Katana 50: https://www.thomann.de/intl/boss_katana_50.htm?offid=1&affid=288 We all know that the Katana series is the most popular amp in it's class for a reason - great tone, cheap price. The new flagship Artist changed that. It's not cheap but is it worth the extra? I've put them up against each other, head to head (combo to combo) and hopefully helped you to make the choice for yourself!

Modding the Mighty Bullet Mustang Part 10 - Replacing the cheap nut
 
02:16
As part of the Squier Bullet Mustang modifying marathon, I've made this guide on how to remove a plastic nut and replace it with a bone nut. Squier Bullet Mustang: https://www.thomann.de/intl/fender_squier_bullet_mustang_hh_blkil.htm?offid=1&affid=288 Please see the video after this one to learn how to shape the nut and cut the nut slots to the correct depth. This also works for Graph-tec or graphite nuts on Strats, Les Pauls or even acoustic guitars. Warning - The video contains no guitar playing whatsoever!

How to add an external speaker to your katana 100 into an external speaker (works on any combo amp)
 
10:12
This mod is pretty simple and costs far less than buying the new katana Artist. Increase the flexibility of your katana or indeed ANY combo guitar amplifier. Katana Artist: https://www.thomann.de/intl/boss_katana_artist.htm?offid=1&affid=288 Katana 100: https://www.thomann.de/intl/boss_katana_100.htm?offid=1&affid=288 Katana 50: https://www.thomann.de/intl/boss_katana_50.htm?offid=1&affid=288 Palmer CAB 112 GBK https://www.thomann.de/intl/palmer_pcab112gbk.htm ?offid=1&affid=288 The best thing about doing this mod is that is does NOT invalidate your warranty and can be easily reveresed without leaving any trace of modding. You can then plug your Katana combo into any (8 ohm for the 100) external speaker. This also works for the 50 watt katana - 4 ohms and the 100 212 - (8 ohms for one speaker or 2 16 ohm speakers) T-shirt link - https://teespring.com/stores/theguitargeek Find me on social media here: Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/TheGuitarGeek Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/theguitargeekyt Twitter - https://twitter.com/guitargeekYT

I anticipated that some of you would compare it to an Epiphone so here is the result. I also put my Gibson SG Standard in there and I was a little upset by what I found out... Who wins?

Boss Katana 100 vs Marshall Code 50 - Amp Shootout
 
08:56
The last (maybe) of my Katana versus series. I spent a week with my Marshall Code 50 and got in about 5 or 6 hours of playing and fiddling. Had to compare it with the Boss amp and here are the results. I've grown up with Marshall amps so I was really excited to hear about the CODE series of guitar amplifiers. Marshall Code 50: https://www.thomann.de/intl/marshall_code_50.htm??offid=1&affid=288 Katana 100: https://www.thomann.de/intl/boss_katana_100.htm?offid=1&affid=288 In this video I play through a few different styles of music to show the capabilities of both amplifiers and talk about what I think the Marshall does well and not so well. There's not too much Katana love in this but expect me to say more good things about this wonderful little monster.

How to change a batwing pick guard on an SG

The first in my "How to" series. My gibson Sg standard gets a facelift so I thought I would explain the best way to take a large scratchplate off without causing too many problems for the setup. The next set of explainer videos will be up soon but until then, please enjoy this one and send me a message if there's anything in particular that you would like to see in a video.

Mod your Katana Mini - How to add an external speaker out
 
07:51
Adding an output jack to the mini katana opens up a whole new world of possibilities. You could realistically play (very) small gigs with this amp now. Katana Mini info - https://www.thomann.de/gb/boss_katana_mini.htm ?partner_id=25705 The Cab - https://www.thomann.de/gb/palmer_pcab112gbk.htm ?partner_id=25705 It's a very simple mod and you only need a few tools and some basic soldering skills. Obviously I won't take any responsibility for you killing your amp but follow the steps in the video and you'll be fine. The katana mini expects to power an 8ohm speaker. I should say that this mod is possible with other small, micro amps but I can only advise on this mod. If you do the mod, please let me know how you get on!

How to correctly top wrap your strings
 
02:34
There have been many discussions on the pros and cons of top wrapping your strings on a gibson style tune-o-matic bridge but here's how to do it properly. Adding the ball ends to the strings puts the string a little deeper into the stopbar so that the kinks of the strings stay in the bar and don't get caught on the tailpiece itself. Very useful tip!

Modding the Mighty Bullet Mustang Part 6 - Agent of Shield
 
05:56
Although the humbuckers shouldn't really require body cavity shielding, I thought I'd do a thorough job. Squier Bullet Mustang: https://www.thomann.de/intl/fender_squier_bullet_mustang_hh_blkil.htm?offid=1&affid=288 Using copper tape and some patience, I shielded the entire inside of the mustang and only cut my finger once. As a few subscribers have pointed out, I didn't mention that you also need to shield the back of the pickguard using the same copper tape. Once all this is done, thanks to the pots being grounded, the Faraday cage will be complete.
