Continuum-John Mayer signature/SSS/Wonderland amp-2x12

  • Continuum:
    First of all thank you for purchasing the 'Continuum' Pack. For me John's sound was at it's peak around 2006-2010 when he was using this equipment so I thought it would be nice to make a set of profiles for this.
    there are 24 profiles in the pack which is 8 different settings with a STUDIO, MERGED and DI for each
    The Amp is the John Mayer signature prototype with some extra tweaks through the classic Dumble/Two Rock oval cutout 2x12 cabinet with vintage celestion G12 -65's.
    It was mic'd with a 1960's U67 a Sure SM 57 and a Sontronics Delta Ribbon mic, through high quality mic pre's. The phase was checked and the mics ballanced to give the best sound then fed back to the kemper for profiling.



    Naming Protocol:
    I've called the amp 'Wonderland' after the Dumble it was based on.
    W'land:
    the next number is the volume/gain
    we then have various setting from the amp:
    Bright: bright switch engaged
    Mid: mid switch engaged
    Dirty: this switch turns off the local and global negative feedback(prescence) It adds a little volume on the amp which gets evened out by the kemper profiling but it also gives a little extra grit. It's subtle but a nice tweak.
    STUDIO,MERGED and DI: separate profiles were done for each setting.
    TS9: there's a profile with a boutique tube screamer in front of the amp. It's just a crunch so if you want more put a boost in front.
    THe amp is basically a loud clean amp so don't expect the gain/grit to rise much as the volumes go up. It stays pretty clean.
    theres a reverb and delay in all the profiles, it's on on some and not others.
    If you want to re create john's rig of the time then I'd add a boost then a tube screamer to taste in the first slots. you can then run the boost and TS for extra gain which is what JM does.
    Enjoy the pack:



    Paypall.

    I'll try get some uploaded today. I had a few people keep asking me when this would be done so I just quickly put It out there last night.


    Obviously as a John Mayer pack it's been done with a strat in mind, I did however do a Jazz track on an xmas album using my D'Angelico and it sounded wonderful.


    Keep an eye on this thread and I'll update ASAP.

  • This seems cool. One more vote for samples.


    I have a question, which is perhaps stupid, what's the point of having both a merged and di profile ? If you turn the cab OFF on a merged profile, don't you get the same result ?

  • had a few people asking about how to order so I'll post again for everyone:


    send £8.99 friends and family to Paypal cliffe.marcus(at)gmail(dot)com




    and I'll send the pack on receipt.



    Having had a look around at other various profiles this is a good deal for a 'properly' profile rig. The amp (Clone) and mic's here total about $15,000 :D


    the 'original' proto for this amp sold on reverb this year for over $20k, my 60's U 67 is now worth $10K

  • Hi ,


    After some thorough testing I want to compliment you on these profiles - VERY open , warm , clear sounding - no darkness/muffledness . VERY unforgiving when playing skills are not up to par :whistling:


    I hope you will make more profiles in the future since these are right up to par - if not better - with the best of best :thumbsup::thumbup:


    Thanks and keep up the good work !!! :thumbup:
