    Without seeing those new fangled things on stage. Jezzzzzz, what's the world coming to hahahahahah[​IMG]

    Must be someone from this forum. Still learning that it's FRFR.. not a 4 12.

    He's plugged into FOH. I'll let you know how it sounds. Show is about to start. I think I know how it will.

    I'll tell ya what. I love the lights on the Kemper

    How anyone could want a tube amp when stuff like this exists is beyond me. These things sound ridiculous.. Yes, even through a 4 12..

    Best part about it. It's not freaking insane loud because a tube guy needs to cook those suckers... that is so freaking 70s and 80s it's not funny

    Some guys will cling to their cabs Frank! Like Charlton Heston you'll have to pry them from their cold, dead hands!:naughty::laugh2::wave:
    Id think the cab would throw off all the efforts profiling the system to begin with but hey.....

    Well I think it was only used for stage sound. He was FOH. I spoke to him after the set. He was playing Kemper for 6 months. Wouldn't go back for anything.

    It doesn't surprise me at all. In fact, lately I find it to be common that some form of modeler is in play at the venues I visit.

    You bet.. but that singing.. Holy sh$t

    He was 10 feet in front of me for an awesome 2 sets at my local Casino Lounge. What a surprise and treat. I spoke to him after the show. He switched to Kemper 6 months ago and says he will never go back to tube amps on the road. Funny he should say that because if you listen to many they will tell you Kemper for the studio and tubes on the road. Go figure.

    I can tell you this. He has a 4 12 Marshall Cabinet on stage at ridiculous low volume. He is FOH with the Kemper and the sound was just out of this world. This was the first time I got to hear a great player live with a Kemper FOH.. I'm impressed at just how good these modelers/profilers can be at volume and direct in.

    It was something to be sitting there listening to the stage volume which sounded great already.. THEN they turned on the FOH and holy crap WOW.. Was another world all together. How these tube dudes just don't understand this is beyond me

    Saw and met Anthony Gomes at a bar he was playing at in Illinois a few years back. Nice guy and great player from Canada. He was playing a a 65 Strat that looked like my 64 but played it much better.

    A. I need to get out more and dig Live Music again. Been handcuffed for awhile, being a full-time, working single father. But, Oldest Son is 20, now, and youngest is with his mother every Sat night and some Fridays. So, it's doable again.

    B. Had NOT heard of Mr Gomes before, but WOW. Amp choice aside, his stuff is right in my wheel house. Fact that he is a fellow Kemper Head, well icing baby.
