    All,

    Looks like my gigging days are over so looking to move this on.

    If you're looking you know how good this is. Best/most versatile live rig I've ever used and I'll be sad to see it go but hey ho..

    Would rather sell this as a complete package but would be prepared to split the XiTone cab out if there are no takers after a period of time. I'm not prepared to sell the Remote without the KPA before anyone asks! Have owned for just over 2 years and be assured I really look after my gear!

    • KPA Toaster (unpowered) with latest beta FW and stacks of purchased profiles and padded case
    • Kemper Remote c/w 2 off RJ45 cables and padded case
    • Mission Engineering SP-25m pro expression pedal gold/carbon
    • XiTone MBritt Active FR/FR cab
    • All cables to connect everything up and rock/jazz/blues out or whatever takes your fancy [Blocked Image: http://www.thefretboard.co.uk/plugins/EmojiExtender/emoji/fb/1.gif]

    Basically everything you need to turn up at a gig, set up fully in 10 minutes, get the best FOH sound you've ever had (subject to engineer!) and pack up and go home before everyone else! On top of that you get to sound better than all the other guitarist's rigs (subject to your ability!)..


    Total cost new was about £2.6k and looking for £2000


    Cash and bank transfer accepted and this is collect only from Hertfordshire.

    Some interesting stuff in there Frank.


    I think that some of us have defo found the value in finding some solid cabs; I've found that often a mediocre sounding profile can suddenly spring to life when paired with a decent cab/mic. Just like real amps! Once I found my XiTone FRFR I've never looked back either.


    I'd be interested in understanding some of the other Gamechangers you mention - not the guitar one as I completely get that!


    BTW I can't keep up with the update releases in this pack! What a fantastic problem to have.


    Si

    Yep gotta agree.


    I'm only half way through and its full of gems.. I've thrown the Strat, Tele and LP at them and found some magic with all of them. I'm actually impressed with the cleans as well - lovely..


    Now I gotta go on holiday for two weeks arghh.. not sure I'm gonna be able to sneak the KPA and axe into the luggage :)


    Seriously good stuff and I'm gonna rebuild my main performance out of these when I get back.


    Si

    Agreed totally.


    I got rid of mine however with the big delays update on the KPA and haven't missed it!

    What matters to some (but not all) is that the sound you get is good! It's totally subjective of course but if you get what you want in terms of sonics then that's ALL that matters. Well not quite but you get what I mean; it's good that other people dig the sound as well :)


    There's an old age in the world of software procurement that goes along the following lines; buy what you want based on requirements and not features..


    It's hard not to get caught up in the hype etc. but like you the day I bought my KPA I knew I was never going back. Doesn't mean I haven't still got loads of amps and don't get caught up in some of the music marketing machine hyperbole but the KPA meets my needs and I won't look anywhere else until my needs change (I don't think they will!)


    Have fun,


    Si

    Interesting this however it's worth noting that Lee had the opportunity to hear both the real and Kemper sounds and know which was which i.e. detect the differences tonally and quantify them. It would have been good (better) if he'd had three different amps and profiles...not sure he would have done so well!


    Either way they all sounded great..


    Si

    Grabbed myself a couple of the Legendary Tones packs this weekend (VH & AC/DC) for a bit of fun.


    Running the merged profiles (with the cab off) into a 4x12 with Greenbacks was a truly awesome experience!


    TJ has really nailed these tones..


    What hoot!


    Si

    I can confirm that as long as you don't have a computer running Rig Manager connected during the show (and you have a decent cable to the remote) you shouldn't have any issues.


    Whilst I've had lots of lock ups in practice sessions with a computer connected I've never had a blip on the 100 or so gigs I've done with mine.


    Good luck and hope the gig is a hoot!
