I can buy a 50 watt version 2 amp with a footswitch for 150 locally, is this price okay and is there anything wrong with the version 2 model?

I’ve seen deals like that pop up on the local CL. I assume they’re sold for a little less.

I think they went up to $229 not long after they launched. Do they come with the footswitch, or is that extra?

Footswitch is extra, it was sold before I could get to it. Thanks.

The Katana 50 is a great amp and the price looks good, too.

Regardless of whether the box says Version 1, 2 or 3, all Katanas can be firmware upgraded to the latest version. (which is Version 3.02, I believe)

Yea, until they announce a Katana 2 or..whatever, it'll be upgradeable.

Roland is VERY good about that. Always has been.

Their product life cycles are long.

On the 50 any standard foot switch is usable to change presets . Nothing fancy.
The only thing upgradable about the amp is firmware. I believe the physical amplifier is unchanged.
I bought mine at 199 before the huge price hike to 229.
150 for a nice 50 doesn’t seem out of line but I don’t know what they’re actually selling for.

I forget what I paid for mine, but the asking price at the time was $229 I bought the BOSS 2 button F6 footswitch which has a active button to show which lines are engaged. That was $60. The F6 works well because you can tell which of the 4 channels you're in, but as stated above, any latchable footswitch will work and you can use a one button, but you will need to manually access the other two channels (B side of one and two).

$150 was a good price if the condition was good. There is a learning curve on these so used ones may be in great shape if someone bought one and didn't want to go through some processes to make it more user friendly, like hooking up to USB and setting the four channels that way in a computer. For instance, in mine there was a delay setting on the reverb of both b channels that you had to connect to USB to disable if you didn't want it (I didn't).
