That's quite a different pair of amps.

The Katana is something of a one-stop amp. A wide variety of tones, built-in effects, loud enough to gig, I think the head even has a little speaker built in for practice. More tweeking available if you connect a computer. And relatively light, as all SS amps are.

The Marshall is a bit of a one trick pony, compared to this. But what a trick. With the Marshall, you'll probably want to add an overdrive pedal(s) to get the range of tones you want - and some mod pedals down the road. So the Marshall is like one part of a system you'll have to assemble yourself. But it will be your system, not the same system as all other Katana owner's have.

So I have only two questions for you. Red pill or blue pill? And how deep down the rabbit hole do you want to go?
