I know there are a few people here who have the Boss Katana amp(s). Does anyone have a trusted repsository for patches? I am looking for a Chuck Berry patch to compliment a song I am learning.

I did a quick search & found this:

https://guitarpatches.com/patches.php?mode=show&unit=Katana&ID=11995

But I didn't try it so I can't verify it's accuracy.

I also found this:

And I think this guys gets the basics right.

1. Bridge position humbucker.

2. Fender model amp (Twin or Showman, some silverface model is likely what Berry actually used).

3. 50% gain & level (because the amp probably didn't have a master volume plus gain you want to simulate a lot of natural power tube saturation).

4. 100% bright (simulates the Bright switch on those old Fender amps)

5. 100% treble, 50% (or lower) mids & bass (for that treble heavy biting sound!)

6. A little reverb.

Crank it & hit those double stops! :) Hope that helps!

Thanks Christopher, yes indeed, double stops. Chuck wrote music that is just plain fun to play!
