Very nice, sounds like a real amp. Thanks for the vid. God bless.
Sounds great! So ... I understand from the comments that your signal is going through the PA. That said ... are you monitoring your guitar through your vocal monitor ... or do you have a dedicated monitor only for guitar? Related ... What is the most important thing a guitarist should know about the Kemper before pulling the trigger on going that route? Many thanks!
Hi Stephen, yes the Kemper main outputs (stereo) are going straight to the PA (I lock the volume on this output section so the desk gets a consistent level), and I run the Kemper Monitor Output (mono) into my vocal monitor (my vocal monitor has 2 inputs, so I take a feed of the band without my guitar into one input, then my Kemper into the other. This allows me to easily adjust my guitar level in my vocal monitor myself without having to bug the sound tech, and because the main outs have the volume locked, my changes won't affect the front of house mix.I don't miss my tube amps and pedal board, the Kemper gives great sound to my ear and is so flexible and simplifies things (there is a learning curve though). Biggest benefit is that if you get tired of the sound of a vintage fender amp, and would like a Matchless, you just grab a profile and you're done!The most important thing to bear in mind is that the Kemper replicates the sound of a mic'd amp (i.e. what you'd hear out front of house), not the sound you'd hear if you put your ear up to the amp. Both sound great in my opinion. Ive honestly never had better stage sound than with the Kemper. No regrets here!
What a tone! Cheers bro!
Sounds great man.
Hi Phillip.. thank you so much .. your playing is great man. Your vocal too . God Bless . Have a super day...
Hey Philip. Well congrats anyway Bud. It’s a great unit .. grant is a great talent . Thank you for Sharing your times and getting back to me😀👍
Thanks Mark - although that's not me! It's my mate Grant. It's my kemper through which he loves to use from time to time :)
Sounds Great!! Which profile are you using if I may ask. ?
It's one of the free 62 fender patches from Michael Britt.
Nice tone man !!! Are you connected directly on a P.A system ?
sounds really good, like a real amp .. warm tone!! greetings
Thanks man. Yes - direct to PA from the Kemper XLR outs :)
Hello. What do you prefer? Kemper or axe?
I only have the Kemper so couldn't say as I haven't compared them. I feel like the kemper is all I'll ever need though. From what I've read the Kemper, Axe and Helix are all excellent units.
Are you goin directly into the PA system? Sounds great
@Chuck Frost To be honest, the Kemper can only sound as good as what you're putting through, great sounding PA = great sounding Kemper. Bad sounding PA = not great sounding Kemper. For example, our rehearsal space at our church office building has a garbage PA, and my Kemper never sounds great though that (although with some tweaking on the desk it can sound ok). As soon as I put it through the main (decent) PA system at our main church space though, it sounds amazing. So if you've got an average PA, you may need to do tweak the desk a little to get it sounding ok. Also, make sure you main output is set to around -20db in the output section of your Kemper as a starting point, then do gain and volume adjustments at the desk accordingly (this may be why it's sounding too screamerish - the output level on the Kemper is super hot so if you tame it back to -20db then this may help). Cheers
@Philip Rose Thanks for your help. I am new with the Kemper so I ask a lot of questions! My big concern is playing with a subpar PA system, so I want to get my tone as precise as possible. I played around with the 62 Britt and I can definitely hear the potential. It sounds like a screamer tone though.
@Chuck Frost If I did use the kemper gain knob, I would've only done it a tiny bit. It would've been pretty close to a stock M.Britt profile I reckon. I also can't remember if I used a drive before it in the stomp section (i.e. green screamer), as it was a while back. I don't think so though form memory. Finally, it's a decent sound system we use (QSC system) and it's only been recorded with a phone mic, so that might be colouring the sound a little. Suffice to say, the M.Britt fender profiles (deluxe reverb profiles) should work pretty well for a starting point if you're using a strat or a tele. I now play a Gretsch Jet, and find the Matchless Profiles from Brian Carl work a lot better for that guitar. If you're not a member already, try the Kemper groups on Facebook, they're great and there's a lot of good advice there too. Cheers! :)
@Philip Rose Did you use the gain knob on the Kemper? I haven't had much luck with that knob sounding good.
@Chuck Frost No just a little light reverb on it (from the Kemper). It was one of the free ones out of the demo pack on the Michael Britt website (either the 62 or 64 fender deluxe reverb. I would've just dialed up the volume and gain a little for the lead tone (and possibly the mids).
