M Britt Kemper Profiles

  • Curtesy of Mr. Britt I have profiles of both the first amp I ever used to jam with a drummer (Sears Silvertone) and the amp I used when I was gigging in the late70s-early 80s (Lab Series L5). Such a trip down memory lane!

    I recently sold my L5 (which I bought new in 81) along with all my other amps courtesy of the great sounds I'm getting from the Kemper and his profiles.


    And I used to have a Silvertone to go with my $35 Kay guitar. I try not to think about it. :)

  • Dear Michael,


    I have purchased most of your commercial profiles and they are all superb!

    I just want to know the exact amp manufacturers and amp models for profiles pack #3. I saw the information sheet on your website, unlike other profiles, the description in pack #3 are somewhat vague. This is solely just out of curiosity plus to organize my rig manager stuff. :)

    Thank you.

  • Ok, so for 5 years I've been using the KPA without any pedals most of the time, except for a Line 6 M9 in the fx loop for chorus and octo verb. And just because I wanted to be prepared for any pop up gigs where I needed a real amp pedalboard rig, I built a pedalboard recently that would cover a whole show (for the most part). It sounds great with my main amps I keep at home and it's been fun to play on. So, this week I've been experimenting with some gain pedals (and a couple other pedals) in the loop of the KPA to see if I could recreate the tones I'm getting from my home pedalboard rig. I can profile the amps with the gain pedals in line and tonally it's pretty close, but I feel like the dynamics are bigger with the gain pedals in the loop.


    Which brings me to my question: How many of you guys use pedals along with the Kemper, either before the KPA or in the loop?

  • Michael, it might be an idea to wait and see what sort of improvements Kemper implements in its stomp upgrade before "committing" one way or the other.


    The updated stomps should appear in a FW update at some point in the near future with any luck and may well render the hardware route obsolete for many folks.

    Hi Michael,


    I have some nice OD / Distortion pedals, which sound absolutely fantastic and (most importantly) respond and interact with the KPA exactly as they do with a traditional tube guitar amp. I use them in the KPA FX Loop set up for "Loop Distortion ".


    My main OD/Distortion pedals consist of:


    DOD-250 Reissue (2015 gold fleck)

    MI Audio Crunch Box

    Digitech Bad Monkey

    Wampler Pinnacle II Limited Reissue (2010)

    Suhr Riot


    Mainly I switch back and forth between the DOD-250 and the Wampler Pinnacle.

  • Hey Mike, all my ODs/Dists/Fuzzes, have taken turns in front of the KPA. All of them sounded very good to great. All setting were developed while running into the KPA. I did not use any preconceived notions on setting them how they would be used in front of a real amp. I believe that would be a disappointing experience.

    I have not tried any in the loop. What's the advantage other than a happy accident?
