I'm completely aware of the BOSS Katana's extreme versatility. It can produce a wide variety of sounds while still feeling like a tube amp. This amp has a sound for just about anyone, from a scooped and bright Fender clean to a crunchy and midrange-heavy Plexi to a face-melting high gain 5150 or Dual Rectifier. How do you like your BOSS Katana configured for your own personal use?
As an example, here's how I like to configure mine:

I have a Katana 50. I keep it on the clean setting, flat EQ, possibly a small amount of plate verb 99% of the time right now - but I’m playing big band and small group jazz.

For surf, I keep pretty much the same general settings, but rely on my pedals for verb, fuzz, and trem.
