Oh goody, a wireless solution that is tied to the amp! Who wants to put pedals in front of the amp anyway?

It's not just wireless, just an option. Honestly, the regular Katana series are awesome little amps. For being a cheap ($219) digital amp, the 50 smokes what I paid $350 for in 1992.

Looks like something I can use, since I only play at home. But that's a bit pricey for me, so I'll wait until they have more sizes/options, if that happens.

This one seems to sit in a category to solve a problem I don't have. When I'm at home and practicing, that's when cables, pedals, different amps, etc are all readily available and where they are the most convenient to use. A wireless system on stage is handy, but at home, cables aren't really an issue.

I guess it's for people who want to keep things as minimalist as possible? Or maybe for a spare, easy on the eyes little rig to keep in the living room where tons of unsightly gear and cables would be a pain? Either way, it's pretty expensive for what it is. I wonder how the speakers sound.
