After trying out the Boss Katana - see video here - I also unboxed and tried the new Nextone Artist amplifier that Boss sent me!
The Boss Nextone Artist is the next level up from the Katana 100, but offers a very different thing. The Nextone claims to simulate the power amp stages of four valves that are signtaure to the sound of many classic guitar amplifiers. These are;
- 6V6 - Used in a Fender Princeton
- 6L6 - Use in a Fender
- EL84 - Use in a Vox AC30
- EL34 - Used in classic Marshall amps
Watch the video to find out what I thought about it and to see the amp settings I used to get different tones!

BOSS Nextone VS Classic valve amplifiers!
Seen as I don't own or have access to the amps that the Boss Nextone claims to emulate, here's a direct comparison video from the good people at Andertons - see what you think!
