The Catalyst 200 combo amplifier operates like a traditional guitar amp, while providing the increased versatility of a modern amp, and features six Original Amp Designs crafted using our renowned HX sound design techniques.
The Catalyst® family includes three dual-channel combo amplifiers that perform like traditional guitar amps—while providing the increased versatility of modern amplifiers. From the 200-watt Catalyst 200, capable of holding its own on nearly any stage, to the 60-watt Catalyst 60, which is perfect for practice, recording, and performing in small venues—there’s a Catalyst amp for every player. Catalyst amplifiers offer six Original Amp Designs—ranging from pristine clean to modern high-gain—crafted using our renowned HX® sound design techniques to ensure exceptional tone and feel. These powerful and sturdily constructed combos are equally suited for stage or studio use, and feature an XLR line output and a 4-channel USB recording interface. Also included are Boost circuits customized for each amp type, a dedicated Reverb section with six reverb types, 18 additional effects, an effects loop, a Power Amp input for using Catalyst as a powered speaker, MIDI capabilities, and power attenuation options for playing at any volume. The free Catalyst Edit app for desktop and mobile devices provides deep editing capabilities. Add an optional LFS2 footswitch for even more flexibility, and an optional cover to protect your combo.
Valve or Tube amps use vacuum tubes to derive amplification where solid state uses electronic transistors. Valve amps generally cost more money as they are a more complex build and require more maintenance than their solid state brethren. Tubes usually give you a smoother response than solid state does but, don't count out the solid state yet. Solid state amps have been around since the 60's and have improved greatly over the years. Solid state amps are generally cheaper and much lower maintenance and therefore are more reliable when performing. Ultimately it comes down to personal preferences. Both types of amps are used regularly by professional musicians alike.
Amp modelling is basically where one amp recreates the sound of another. As some amps can be quite expensive, amp modelling is a less expensive option to get a similar sound. Amp modelling is a growing technology but, has not yet perfected exact emulation.
