bit rich for my blood
just in time for xmas
I was looking at the BAM200 at MF and read multiple reviews that complained it has no power and they doubt the 200W claim. They say it seems more like 30 or 40W and would only be good for maybe an acoustic gig. Would this be because they're going through higher ohm speakers maybe? Those that use it with the KONE seem pretty thrilled and I don't recall any power complaints. Is it adequate power for a large venue?
i was using mine at home, dont think i pushed it past 9/10 o clock
somebody took the effort to find the tonestack values for a flat EQ on thwe BAM200.
Finally got my Bam200 and I have to say it sounds amazing. I’ve always played through a L6 firehawk 1500 and a cerwin Vega cve-10 which sounded decent but playing through an actual cab sounds the best to me. Never been happier with my Kemper. Thanks for the input on the Bam200 everyone.
someone recently took the effort to find the tonestack values for a flat EQ on the BAM200. very helpful and useful im sure
damn, was hoping wouldnt have to get this one. how do they compare to the 2020 pack?
Thanks for the reply Bob and apologies for being a bit slow but.... I don’t understand what this means. Does this mean that each profile can now have a different Kone imprint applied? So if I change from a Marshall to a Fender, the Kone automatically changes too from Greenbacks to Jensons for instance?
If it does, is this something I have to program / save with the rig? Or can I pull up a ToneJunkie profile and it ‘just knows’ (I doubt this but don’t know!)
yes you can lock any imprint to a profile automatically in the cabinet section, and then save it
if volume and neighbours are an issue then monitors are more sensible. the kone to me is much more satisfying to play though
i would say the mbritt 2020 pack
yes, direct into the kone is great. i briefly hooked up the kpa to studio monitors out curiosity, quickly changed back to the kone
Is there a perceived advantage that the neural will have over the Kemper?
Just trying to work out why such interest from Kemper owners.
size, screen, update on wifi etc. if soundwise its a least on par its a winner
Could someone link me to what I’d need to buy in terms of the Icepower? It’s a bit confusing.
this is UK based, but its what you are looking for
you want the cable pack to go along with it
Maybe other Americans can mention where they got theirs. there is a big thread on here regarding the intsall and many of us have done it, highly recommended. Low price and flexibility to put it in any cab you wish
I’m really finding this, on going, discussion interesting & fascinating. I’m going to start trying some more overdrives
same, ive been watching vids on klon pedals and similar which i never would do normally
what are you high/low pass settings on the output stage?
So the great news is that I only have cover the shipping to Germany as this is a known fault from a small batch of 2012 produced Kempers. Thanks paults
Shipping - any advice on shipping in Europe (in my case from UK to Germany) as the value of the Kemper certainly pushes the price up.
hmm i have similar, dead LED from years ago and it was from when the kemper was first released. Nice to know they are willing to fix it
i put the high low pass filters on the outputs, saves you a slot. there is one mode switch setting on the clr that has less bass and i always preferred that regardless
First of all thank you for the warm welcome and helpful response.
Seems like the Kone/Kabinet is more popular than I expected from reading online.
I would need an active version of the Kone though, since I have the Kemper Stage, right?
Do I build this myself or just run a poweramp into the kabinet?
Again I'm really out of my league here
if you wanted the kone route you could buy the Kabinet, plus a poweramp like Bam200, seymour duncan 170 etc. if you have a spare guitar cab you could even buy the kone speaker alone and put it in a cab with your poweramp of choice connected.
dont forget the Kemper kone. i use it for home use and find it more satisfying than 2 monitors
to be able to do the test right it is important that the input signal of the guitar or the reamped DI is quite high. The input led of the KPA should be turning yellow . It is unlikely that you get this with a regular strat if it has not very hot pickups or if you don't play extremely loud. It is during that time, when the input led is yellow, that the problem arises with lightbox setup.
When the input led is always green, on my experience everything works as it should.
I will do my own tests again this afternoon again and report back.
I have exactly the same results. It is happens only when reamping with very hot signal. Cannot replicate this with live guitar.
i see thanks for the clarification. i was thinking how nice it sounds testing it out
