I keep hearing bravos for the Boss Katana amps, including from folks who are usually super serious about the fine points of their tone. The Katana's weight, size, and versatility certainly look attractive. BUT, in every video I see there seems to be a real lack of high end audible.

For those of you who are using one - or if you've heard one live - are you hearing the same thing as me or am I just stumbling onto the wrong videos?

I guess I've been the most active member experimenting with the Katana. You may have seen this video from last week with the Katana. Keep in mind that this stage was so small that the amp could only be put right in back of my seat. I notice that the Kat has more highs on a chair, but more lows on the floor. BTW, I'm also in Nashville if you'd like to talk or come try the amp.
