After almost one year without the Kemper, initially selling it because tube amps were "cooler", had more of a rock n' roll vibe etc, I had nothing but problems with the amp that replaced the Kemper... Also moving from Norway to the UK wasn't really practical to bring my huge Marshall JCM800 (not the amp I had issues with btw), and a Powerhead turned up on the used market with almost uncanny good timing. I have been seriously changing preferences since the last time I owned a Kemper, back then I couldn't even listen to the profiles through a PA speaker, headset or whatever; it had to be through a real cab. Nowadays I actually hate the sound of a real cab, the only way I can enjoy it is to crank it up and use earplugs (good ones though) to roll of the worst highs...
That's not really what this thread is supposed to be about though, sorry about that! I have so many great profiles now of classic rock tones, it's frankly insane how good some of them sound and replicates that low gain power tube distortion! My problem is that I cannot find any metal tones I like, the closest I've come is the 1984 Brown Sound profile from Top Jimi which is my metal profile of choice at the moment, but it's not quite there. Other profiles of more "pure" metal amps I don't really like, I got his Bogner Überschall TwinJet pack and while I absolutely love the first channel, it doesn't have enough gain for metal and the second channel is way too fat and dark, loose in the bass etc. That's the way most of them are, really dark sounding and loose bass response.
I stumbled upon this clip tonight, which was not only cool to hear because of what it is but the guitar tone is also way, way better than on the actual album! I would almost go as far as describing it as the perfect metal tone, especially from what I hear from this point (the link was supposed to take you to 0:22):Anyone know about a set of profiles that can recreate that particular tone?
