    I actually think powered Kemper head is underrated as a 'one stop' solution in the real world
    You can play at home through any cab w/wo Kone, record direct into DAW, take to any gig and plug into PA and/or backline cab...
    Like, do any other digital modellers/profilers have that convenience? I think it solves real world problems! Stereo would be the only tricky bit...
    But maybe I'm being too practical for the Kemperverse. 2 Kempers into 2 Kemper Kone full stacks and 2 ipads for my 500 AC30 profiles please 😂

    HW, I appreciate your videos very much! You are interesting and entertaining, and your videos are educational and helpful. Keep up the good work.

    The Kemper stage was never on my radar until the iPad editor arrived, with my eyesight deteriorating in the nearly 10 years of owned my vintage white toaster, the app has given new fresh life to my Kemper, so glad to have made the Kemper choice.

    I hope kemper will create an hx stomp form factor modeller which is small and compact

    Kemper Stage is literally a dream rig. Just one small gear and you can play with your sound wherever you want

    Great video. Can't wait for the amp v kab a/b shoot out. Great content as always HW!

    Say you wanted to run it with a few great drive pedals to go form creamy, to ambient, to hard rock? What would be the best pedal platform profile to do with this setup?

    I was freaking out because I thought HW was going to hit the Gibson headstock on the desk! Anyway...
    I initially bought a powered rack and the remote bundle (still have it). I started gigging with it and hated the setup. My particular setup required running multiple cables to and from the pedal board. To simplify my setup I ended up using an Amplifire 6 with some other pedals on my pedal board and it worked well and was incredible easy. As soon as the Kemper Stage came out I bought it. The Stage is easy to gig with and what I wanted. Now that wifi and the iPad app have been revealed it makes the Stage even more convenient. I have a TM112 Hughes and Kettner cabinet that I put a Kemper Kone into and love it, but still have to use the power amp with Stage. Weeeelll, I just bought a Kemper Powered Kab which now has completed my ultimate rig. HW is right this is the best! Kemper Stage, Kemper Powered Kab, and iPad w/ Rig Manager app.

    As a guitar player, the only thing I think "simulators" have yet to solve, is the "inability" to have feedback when you use in-ears or when you are recording and can't get loud enough to get that. I've used Helix, Kemper, Fractal, Boss, etc, and the only thing I almost always miss from using a real amp is that beautiful harmonic feedback, when you stand next to an amp. If you check the video where Pete Thorn showcases a Trainwreck, you'll see exactly what I mean... :(

  • Shane Wooding

    Great video!! can you use 2 powered cabs with the head unit?

  • Tan Varma
    Tan Varma Year ago

    HW - The problem I'm finding with this rig is that we cannot do a Wet/Dry setup with the Kemper Kone because Monitor Out is the only option for Output with these :(

  • Natural Order
    Natural Order 8 months ago +1

    Are the Kemper Powered Kabinets loud enough for a rehearsal? I heard a few people saying they weren't loud to hear over a drummer. What do you think? Anybody have any input?

  • Guy Morrell

    Exactly the rig I'm building. Well, with a cheaper iPad. Looking forward to the real amp comparison!

      Yeah I went a little overboard. I've been secretly wanting one but was looking for an excuse.

    Will be even better when we can choose one (cloud) location for all profiles - too many TJ profiles to fit on the Kemper! Then this location can be accessed by editors running on different devices.

  • Mik Copley
    Mik Copley Year ago +1

    Would love to hear how it compares to other speakers too, I got the yamaha dxr10 and struggle to get it to sound as good or as responsive as through headphones. Love the profiles and all your content dude.

  • Michael Inloes
    Michael Inloes Year ago

    One downside has kept me from getting the powered cabinet. To my knowledge you can only use with Kemper. I use my hx stomp occasionally and would like an FRFR that could do both

    • Michael Inloes
      Michael Inloes Year ago

      @Somebody Someone That makes sense, but I primarily use my HX stomp when I don't want to bring my Kemper or as a backup in the case (knock on wood) my kemper fails. Have you tried running pod go directly into kemper kab with cab sim still on? I'd be curious as to your results

    • Somebody Someone
      Somebody Someone Year ago

      Been thinking about this same issue. I got a powered Kabinet and I LOVE it. But I agree with your issue... I was thinking, can you run your HX Stomp into the front of the kemper with the amp and effect sections all off. Just use the cab section. Haven’t tried it, but I may try it with my brother’s Pod Go

  • Pete Whitten

    Hw, I just got a Kemper head and I have it running through Yamaha h5s in a bedroom. It sounds awesome.. what do you think of this kind of set up?

  • Paul Doyne
    Paul Doyne Year ago

    With just one amp, can you create a wet-dry rig? And, if you had a third powered Kabinet, could you make a wet-dry-wet rig?

    • Paul Doyne
      Paul Doyne Year ago +1

      @ToneJunkie TV Thanks HW. Can you show us how to do a W/D/W please? There is nothing online showing this. I have a set of speakers like your Yamaha monitors, and I'd like to put them either side of me powered Kemper Kabinet. How do I get the monitors to be stereo wet, and the Kabinet dry?

    • ToneJunkie TV
      ToneJunkie TV  Year ago

      I was talking quickly, I was trying to say you can keep adding Kemper Kabs and the keepers routing will let you do just about anything... 1 Kab in Mono, 2 Kabs in Stereo, 3 Kabs W/D/W.

    • Sebastian Schmidt
      Sebastian Schmidt Year ago

      Makes no sense… the Kemper cab has to put in the monitor outs. If you put it in the direct out / master out, you are not able to use the kemper Kone feature :/ would be cool if they would add the feature to the other outputs.

  • Doctor McFarland Studios

    Did you get to try the Trainwreck tube power amp at NAMM? How would this kemper cab compare?

  • Eric Frederich
    Eric Frederich Year ago +2

    Why would you get a Kemper Kab over a full range PA system?... With a full range PA you can play along to backing tracks with drums, bass, etc. Ever since I bought a PA for my music room to run my electric drums into, I've found myself running my Boss Katana's line out through my PA rather than getting sound directly from the Katana.
    Especially since the Kemper has cab simulation, wouldn't it be more versatile to have a full range PA?

    I tried the app. When I want to change the amp or cab it has a really weird choice of models. Like 10 or so. Anyone knows what I'm doing wrong?

    Hey , I have a laney LFR 112 for my kemper currently is an upgrade to the kemper cab worth the change? Does it sound much better?

    • ethandrake
      ethandrake Year ago

      Hey dude, I’m in the same boat as you currently, just wondering which one to get out of the two. I’ve heard the Laney is really loud but the kabinet doesn’t have as many reviews.

  • mistrp13331

    Does the power Kabinet connect to Kemper unpowered head with guitar or speaker cable like the unpowered Kabinet

  • Keith Briscoe

    Has anyone done the math on how much this setup costs? Some of us are wondering, "HW, can anyone else afford this?". Why have 1 powered monitor, when duh... you can have two.

    • Kirsten Ray
      Kirsten Ray Year ago

      HW ended up making a budget Kemper setup, clip-share.net/video/rH-W3BNeGFg/video.html, but let's be real there is no low cost Kemper setup because the Kemper alone is not a budget item. Anyone who can afford a Kemper can likely afford he ultimate setup HW described. You don't have to get everything at once. I have the Rack and when the Stage came out I sold other gear and saved to get it because that was the format I wanted the Kemper in. Later on I got the Kemper Kone to put in an existing cabinet of mine. Then later I got the Kemper Powered Kab. I got the iPad 5 years ago which still works. You don't have to get a new iPad, the old ones work just fine. If you want something you find a way.

    Is the biggest concern about any rig whether "you have to bend over"? He's talking about reaching "knobs", or something else....

      Yeah, you can still use the the network cable out to a router and connect wirelessly to the iPad that way.

      The Kemper software is all free. The Stage is about 1800 but if you look used you can save a couple hundred. You don’t have to run Kemper Cabs, you can start with your amps and bypass the amp’s preamp then you’re good to go. You can use any wah pedal too

    How can anyone normal afford all this extra stuff. You should do a budget version of this video. a/b ??

    • Kirsten Ray
      Kirsten Ray Year ago

      ​@WolvesAndGuitars That is correct, he did post it AFTER this video, in response to the comments on affordability of the Kemper rig he showcased. Thank you, I will #Stayperplexed. What I'm perplexed about is the idea that there is a "budget" Kemper rig. The lowest entry point is $1700 for the Stage and even more if you get the unpowered Head/Rack with the Remote. My point is, if you got that kinda cash to spend on a Kemper, just to get in the game, what is it to spend an extra $790 on the powered cabinet or getting an iPad so you don't have to bend over. Seems obvious that the only way to save money on this rig is to to buy used or buy alternatives and buy the things you can, when you can, as opposed to all at once. Either way, the pain is in affording the Kemper and if you can do that, you certainly can figure out the rest.
