Amazing!. let me say that first. possibly the best Plexi ever played, its so full of rich detail, and really delivers that oompf that you would expect…I adore this! however, the tide will change if your on a p90/HB style guitar. it just not do it in that department…don’t get me wrong, it still will sound great. but it really comes to life with the “twang”

And the surprise of this pack goes to this amp, I hated the “in the room sound” just sounds pretty awful to be honest.. the boxyness, no groove or vibe. so I nearly did not profile it, as once its miced, (after a LOT of tone searching) I manged to get something so usable and brilliant sounding its almost surprising that this set of profiles came from that amp!..wow! – I love it when this happens!

Another personal amp of mine, and a modern twist of yesteryear, and also a lesson on HOW to do it correctly. – the amp is simply amazing at detail, try picking at different intervals and you get a different sound every time, the profiles really reflect this and is spot on! – the gain gets a bit flubby towards the sharp end, but its not designed for that anwyay!

This amp has lots of tonal options. brilliant on max, and it likes it here. – rolling down the volume on a full profile is different than using a pushed profile so use the options available wisely. – the amp doesn’t have verb, just an amazing tremolo that the Kemper cant replicate. – my advise for this is to DIG in, lots of open chords are very pleasing on this. perfect for lead play too.

What we recommend…

  • Try Increasing the “Definition” for a brighter/tighter tone
  • Try decreasing the “Definition” for a darker/vintage/looser tone

What you Get…

you wont get Van Hallen from this, but you might get a bit of Gilmour, or Hendrix. – its a brilliant amp that whilst high-gain and strats are very rarely paired together, this works great for those moments. (really good actually) I loved it. but needs taming, so play with volume knob and try different pickups for good results. – you need to work for this amp.. so Dig in!..
