Friend brought his Marshall Code 50 over a couple days ago for a jam. I have a Katana 50. LOVED the wireless phone app for the Marshall. So easy to use. They deffinately got that part right. Something the Katana doesn't offer. That's where the love stopped. It didn't sound bad but nowhere as good as the Katana. To my ears it wasn't a huge step from Fender Mustangs. He plugged in and proceeded to play on the Brown and Lead settings of the Katana for a good hour adding and tweaking effects and another fan was made. Maybe when we get to a larger venue where it can be cranked my mind will change but for now I'll pass.
