I will soon be a brand new Kemper user having been a stalwart valve-amp + pedals user for a very long while! About a year ago I moved from a heavy valve amp to a Fender Twin Tone Master and started running a Victory Sheriff valve pre-amp on my pedalboard. The rig sounds great but my pedalboard is now by far the heaviest thing I have to lug around and listening to some demos of Michael Britt's 2020 pack convinced me on the Kemper tones being more than capable. Consequently, I have a new Kemper Stage inbound!
My band plays a mixture of Punk and Rock from 70s through to 2010s so my plan is to use the aforementioned M.Britt 2020 pack to begin with since I really like how they sound:
1. Clean (Fender Vibro Lux)
2. Slight Drive (Fender Pro Reverb)
3. Medium Drive (Marshall 68 Plexi)
4. Heavier Drive (Marshall 68 Plexi)
5. Tighter Drive (not sure .. .maybe CA Tripper or the Trainwreck for some fun!)
I'm thinking to set all of those up so that the Morph feature adds reverb on the cleaner sounds
A - Fuzz or Drive mapped to footswitch I (I'm thinking Fuzz into the lower gain and Overdrive into the higher gain ones?)
B - Phaser mapped to footswitch II (I like Phaser before the amp)
X - Lead Boost (flat 3db?) mapped to the TAP footswitch
Mod - Tremolo, mapped to footswitch III
Delay - Delay mapped to footswitch IIII
From reading manuals and watching YouTube that all seems possible ... just remains to be seen how long it takes me to actually set it up!
For amplification ... I'm gonna try running it through my Fender Twin Tone Master with Monitor Cab Off enabled. I think I've seen at least one person saying that works okay but there's no effects loop on the TM so I may need to look into a powered cab such as the Kemper Kabinet. I've just heard a few reports on that being a bit quite so will see how the TM goes first.
