I bought my Kemper 3 months ago, but I thought I would wait until I had done a gig with it before I posted a review, and that gig was on Saturday.\nI hadn't really run the Kemper through a PA until now, I had just been using it to trial tones and practice songs and do a bit of recording, all of which it does exceptionally well.\nI've been through a lot of gear over the years, and I'm stoked to say after all this time, the Kemper is a keeper. I tried an FM3 direct through PA and it just wasn't really my thing. It didn't sound right, especially on Plexi tones, and it was a real bitch to program, so I sold it on. I like modelers that are simple but has enough tweaking that goes just past the BMT controls on a regular amp. I think the amplifier settings on the Kemper are perfect for this. I have no trouble getting the exact sound I'm after. The EQ and the effects are top notch.\nI had an Atomic Amplifire too and that's no slouch.\nWhen I was setting up my patches for the weekend, I had the band PA hooked up in my shed and was scrolling through MBritts 69 Marshall pack until I found a tone that sounded good through our PA. I set up a few patches with EQ and effects, programmed the Remote and I was done. On Saturday we got some comments on how good we sounded, it was awesome!\nUp until this point, I had been using my Headfirst modded Marshall type head through 412 and Torpedo load box. The main problems with this is it was too loud, too much heavy gear and the sound wasn't very consistent from venue to venue. From now on, for me, it's just Kemper direct and IEM's.\nVery happy customer here. Thanks for listening!\n\nGriff.
