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.
Each amp features a custom Boost. Adjust the boost amount and switch the boost on/off using the dedicated Boost knob and button.
Select one of six reverb types. Adjust the reverb amount and switch the reverb on/off using the dedicated Reverb knob and button.
Choose from six types each of Modulation, Delay, and Pitch effects—all drawn from our celebrated HX and Legacy effects libraries.
Insert external effects and other devices into your signal chain using the Effects Loop.
Provides half power, 0.5 watt, and speaker Mute options for reduced volume with minimal tone variation.
Use Catalyst as a powered speaker by bypassing the preamp. Perfect for use with amp modelers and simulators.
