I bought my Kemper head about a year and a half ago and I have been loving it since. I bought a headrush 108 FRFR monitor with it and that's what I've used since. Obviously it sounds great, I love it, but it's not "amp in the room", it doesn't have the feeling, but the pure sound to you ear is stellar.
The Kemper was my first really nice piece of gear, before that the only amp I ever owned or really played much was my spider valve 112. I actually played it for a sec today for shits and I realized how much I miss playing through an actual guitar cabinet. The tone isn't as good on the line 6 but the harmonics come through differently via a 12 inch guitar speaker vs a 8 inch FRFR with a tweeter or whatever.
Coincidentally I also bought a Peavey Triple XXX a few months ago, because I'm now a Wannabe gearhead and it's an amp that was used on some of my favorite albums. I haven't bought a cab yet but I'm going to very soon and I know many people run their Kemper through a guitar cab. I'm thinking I'm gonna get a 412, probably a Mesa. And I'll also be able to run my Kemper through that cab, so my question is, is running the Kemper through a real guitar cab and not a Kemper kabinet, with the cab simulation turned off, the same as "amp in the room" feeling??
I know some of my favorite artists use Kempers live, into a tube power amp and into 412s and I'm assuming using a different signal to FOH. What is your guys opinion on this? I'm gonna get a guitar cab either way, I'm just excited to be able use the Kemper through it as well.
