My Kemper head ships tomorrow (Friday 9/4). I'll have it Tuesday! Until then I can't join the private sections.
It's probably geeky but here's a graphic of my proposed setup. I searched the forum here for other people's setups and only found one or two. It would be great if some of you owners would look at my simplistic signal chain idea and comment.. be gentle... I'm just playing for me these days.
I'm a 62 yo Cinematographer for film and television, mostly commercials. My parents were musicians, as were my brother and sister so there was live music in our home every night. I gave it a good 11 year run in bands but frankly the money was better and easier in film and TV.
I've fallen way down the rabbit hole for nearly two months now and selling my tube amp.
1974 Les Paul Deluxe Gold Top (orig owner)
1953 Gibson L-3 (formerly my late father's)
1978 Fender Musicmaster (formerly my late brother's")
Marshalls, Sound City, Mesa and for the last few months I've been trying out a Fender HRD4.
Nothing super impressive but it makes me happy and my wife loves my singing and playing still. She's okay with the reasonably high volumes but I'm not so much interested in shaking the walls anymore and protecting my already damaged hearing.
Thanks so much and I'm looking forward to at some point being able to contribute here.
