I'm serious! Please send me some positive thoughts in the next 20 days, fellow Kemperites.
I feel like I might need them with all the QC issues that keep popping up.
I've actually converted from home-studio KPA user to live KPA user after the previous tour in China. While it was a great experience, it was disapointing that not one venue took the backline requirements seriously. I hadn't played such bad amps since I was 15 and just starting out.
So I immediately thought about bringing the KPA this year. I've worked all year on the patches and my pedalboard and tube amp have not left the garage for many months now.
The unexpected release of the Stage made me even happier. Now I could leave my pelicase with toaster and remote at home and actually take one suitcase with my personal stuff and gig stuff.
It will be 2 weeks of 1 or 2 shows a day so just carrying around one suitcase and guitar is such an improvement.
But if the KPA stops working mid tour I will be f*cked, I will have to revert to the worst amps with zero pedals.
I've already received a replacement that has worked for +10 shows and I think I'll stay on 7.08 because I've done gigs on that update without problems.
Thanks to the community for all the help! I will keep you posted.
