General Your general opinion of this product. This is the "end all" to having to try to mic my amp, record it, then recreate it live! It's very much like having a ton of the best amps at my finger tips (and the ability to trade in (or add) from 1-500 of those amps for a different 1-500 if I wish). I made a demo to try to show what it can do. Everything except the drums and kitchen sink went through the Kemper. Please check it out and realize, this is just scratching the surface. My advice, buy this today! https://soundcloud.com/patdulla/kemper-blues-demo Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I've owned it for around 5 months now and I believe I will own it 50 years from now. Not one issue thus far. I'm still playing with it around 3-6 hours everyday, it's that fun and sounds unreal. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Very light, rack mount system. All the control I need is right up front for live performances. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Tone is incredible! Pick an amp profile, and there is the amp in the room with you! Not happy with the sound, tweek to your hearts desire. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Very attractive package. Reliability How has it stood up over time? So far very great!
Amazing!!

General Your general opinion of this product. First of all, this is NOT a modeler, it is a profiler. It is completely different and miles above all the modelers on the market. I have owned most of the modelers past and present and is in a different league as far as tone goes. The presets that come installed and the ones you create from your own amps are real copies or snapshots of the amps that were used to create the preset. i just purchased my second one (yea! two!) and there is nothing like it. I was skeptical when I first got it but after profiling several tubes amps and tube preamps then A/Bing the profile to the original, I was sold!. Imagine an entire of REAL tube amps at the touch of a button. It's that good!. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Well made rack unit. Dependable so far, no issues. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Metal.... good construction Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? ?? Action How was the action out of the box? not a guitar (grin) Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Again, quality stuff. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Only had it for a few months but can't see any problems. Feels rugged.. keep it in a good rack.
Well worth the money

General Your general opinion of this product. The Kemper profiling amp is generally regarded as one of the best guitar modeling amps available. The added profiling feature puts this product into a class of it's own. The versatility of the product is amazing. Plug in headphones for silent practicing, plug it into a digital interface for recording or hook it up to an amplification source and play live. No need to buy or transport multiple amps. A properly modeled amp is indistinguishable from the real thing. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Kemper has done a good job. The construction is similar to other rack mounted appliances. The metal chassis feels durable. As with any appliance, care should be taken not to damage the knobs on the front face. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Plays great. No cut-outs or clipping that is noticeable with other guitar modelers. Plenty of features and options to help you shape your sound. Allows for the attachment of a midi footboard for added control. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? There will be differing opinions on this because there are so many variables. The quality of the guitar, profile and amplification all factor into the sound. Personally I use a Gibson Les Paul standard with an Atomic CLR wedge speaker and it sounds fantastic. In a blind comparison I doubt anyone could consistently identify the Kemper rig versus the real amp. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Typical finish found on most other rack based appliances. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I have only owned the product for a short time. However, given the design I suspect this will last a long time as long as proper care is given. There is no internal fan that can fail so the only real concerns would be the power supply or knobs/switches. If you plan to gig and travel just make sure rack and transport the device securely.
