I'm a full time working guitarist in the Seattle area, and I just officially went full-Kemper as of a couple weeks ago! I've had it out with me now on a handful of jobs in a few different styles; I'm still getting things dialed in, but I've been really enjoying it.
I was a huge tube amp/boutique pedal guy forever. However, I had been considering picking up a digital rig for a long time just due to the convenience factor alone. I felt like all of the extra routing options and portability would make life a lot easier in regards to studio sessions, fly out dates, and gigs where stage volume would be an issue.
However...a few months back, I went and did a fly out date over in Missouri, and the headliner was gracious enough to let me use his Kemper so we wouldn't have to rent a backline. I was excited to actually try it, but I had no idea how blown away I was about to be. I play with In-Ears for the majority of my gigs (this gig included), and it really did sound and react just like a great, cranked amp. I didn't even mess with any of his settings, just experimented with the Performance he had loaded for his set at soundcheck and then played the set. I was immediately sold, and have spent the last few months selling gear to fund the transition.
I'm fortunate that I have a great studio and access to tons of wonderful amps, so the Profiling process has been a God-send. So far, I've been able to make my own profiles of a Dr. Z Maz 18, Verellen Coup, old Traynor Studio-Mate, a '65 Bassman, and a '68 Drip Edge Bandmaster (some of these amps mine, some of them belonging to friends). What a blast! It's so nice having access to any/all of these sounds with the press of a button.
I'm looking forward to being a part of this forum, and hope I can contribute! For starters, I made a little video about my first day with this lovely unit:
