What about reading specs and manuals before spending two grands?
Well, Gianfranco, considering the fact that most (if not all) digital amps multi FXs boxes have a spring reverb on board I can understand his surprise. But if spring reverb is a paramount for him then yes he shoud have made a little search prior to buy. But I doubt we will have to wait very long now before the implentation of a great spring reverb in the Kemper!
i decided to use the Friedman at rehearsal since I do not run the KPA they the PA there.
the CLR are perfect at home when I need to adjust my profiles for PA use.
Just my 2 cents though...
I agree! Best way to use those speakers!
The more linear one, the CLR (I personnaly use a AccuGroove Latte) is perfect for tailoring your rigs at loud volume for the FOH and, as monitor, a Friedman or a DXR10 or whatever you like will be perfect for hearing yourself and get a good feel on a noisy stage.
I just ordered one of these: http://www.music-group.com/Cat…1-0-Wats-of-Perfect-Sound and got a very good price from:
Once I get it I'll report back. It's roughly the same price as the DXR10 ...
It looks to be a nice option!
I will read your review for sure!
54.7 lbs seem to be a little too much on the heavy side for my taste thought.
The DXR8 is not really lighter than the DXR10, less than 3 lbs of difference. It is a little smaller but I would go for the DXR10.
Well, those profiles seem to sound phenomenal!
Wanting to trade my lunchbox unit for a head!
Would prefer a local deal in Southern California.
Can add some cash to sweeten the deal. Thanks!
Lunchbox for a head? You most probably meant lunchbox fo a rack?
She has great skills!!! I'm impress!!!
Considering that the Kemper team seems to put its energy on adding quality and creative new FXs I would definetly go for the remote to keep it as simple and effective as possible.
But if you are an FXs geek and like to buy new pedals regularly and are not afraid of complicated rig then maybe the Mastermind is a better fit for you.
I'm in the first category and would go for the Kemper Remote!
At the moment I'd go with my Suhr Guthrie Govan sig in Bengal burst. Lovely guitar that sounds great with the humbuckers or split coil. Looks stunning and plays just as well. Next week it could well be something else though !!!
Just one?? Seriously?!
Good choice! Suhr designed this guitar for Guthrie exactly for this purpose: Bringing on the plane just one guitar that does it all!
I forgot to mention Accugroove who makes some very good sounding FRFR cabinets (I own myself a Latte)
but they are not especially cheap, they're not amplified and they look more like a bass cab than a guitar cab, but they certainly worth to be mention:
Some companies which make guitar cab looking FRFR cabinets that come to mind:
KPA-Solutions (their blueamp 212FR looks, and is suppose to feel, like a 4X12)
I never tried them myself thought!
Beautifull rig! Welcome!
Of course, Don.
On my budget, with no transport, and for "in a pinch" use on crappy gear (you should see my bike; it's held together by cobwebs), it works, as would olive oil or even lard. Rancidity doesn't matter when everything's rusted anyway.
To be clear, I wasn't recommending the practise; I was responding to Tim's ChapStick question.
I agree that you can't go wrong with graphite. BB Nut Sauce seems like a no-brainer too.
And I would add that Graphite doesn't taste so good in Pina Colada...
Naive to expect a truckload of wah presets based on real-world units to be added in a FW update soon?
Haven't seen them yet, but then again I've just stuck with one of the Kemper defaults for its smoothness and class, so haven't really looked at what's in the unit in quite a while...
I would love a Fultone Clyde preset!!!!!
So so what exactly made the DXR better than the K10?
The DXR10 is not better than the K10 at large but it is better IMO when use with a KPA. Read the precedent post from Ingolf because I totaly share his opinion on the DXR10. I would say that, while the K10 isa very good speaker for PA use, the DXR has this tone that is very usefull on a noisy stage and the mid bump (light mid bump) make it sound more like a guitar cab.
In this price range the DXR10 is a real winner. I personnaly had QSC K10s and replaced them for DXR10s with no regrets apart for acoustic gigs where the QSC shine a little more IMHO.
