I need a new toy for lockdown entertainment and I have the cash for either a guitar or a kemper.
I'm just curious which version of the Kemper people would recommend.
I'll be running it only at home, through either monitors or the power amp section of my 5153 and into a 2x12 cab.
Would a stage be good enough for what I'm after - which is mostly just great sounding amp profiles. I have a Helix FX to use for any effect based stuff, although I'm not a big fx guy.
I've heard the stage has some problems, so I'm curious if anyone has one or experienced those problems now.
I'm also curious as to what benefits the rack and amp version offer over the stage in regards to recording and such.
Would me running the Kemper through a tube power amp section into a cab negate the point of me owning this unit? Or do the preamps themselves sound amazing? Obviously for recording it's kemper straight into the computer.
Also, How does it work for the profiles through a power amp? I mean, I assume the profiles are made on the kemper with the power amp also? I used to use an old axe fx and could just disable power amp for use through a cab, not sure if the kemper is similar.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
