Hello friends, I am getting straight to the point!
I am pretty happy with my Kemper on almost everything, but I can't get a really good medium gain classic-rock lead tone. Something with a little breakup, but with power and sustain like a cranked miked tube amp.
I always find something that lacks "power" and sustain, or has that cocked wah thing, or it's noizy and I have to add a noise gate (stomp or the general one) which also adds the cocked wah effect (the noise gates on the kemper are maybe the worst part of it).
I have tried profiles from almost all vendors, the ones I gravitate more to are Katzbach and Big Hairy. I don't like at all Britt and Junkie. I have also tried Top Jimi, Bert, Mattfig, Agl and many others I probably can't recall now, all the free packs from the other ones, all the stock profiles.
I am even considering getting an Axe 3, I hear a lot of great tones on it and at least everything is in there, I won't have to spend another 1000$ at profile-chasing.
Any suggestions for such tones? Any samples or links? Thanks in advance.
