The Mini Katana, from Keeley Electronics, may only be half the size of its big sister, but it’s every bit as deadly. What started life as a dual class A JFET design evolved into this razor sharp device that can level a crowd as easily as it cuts through a mix.
Able to provide over 35dB of boost, the Mini Katana can hold its own under even the most demanding circumstances. What’s more, this smaller design sports an all-new feature: a 4-mode booster. This welcome implementation gives players access to four different sounds. Overdrive can be achieved by flipping the micro hi-gain switch, while a distinctly warmer tone can be wrought simply by flipping the hi-cut switch. While each of these features is great on their own, the real killing blow comes when they are combined: flipping both switches results in an ample boost alongside dense and creamy overdrive.
