just a quick proper introduction on my part. I have been playing for some 30-odd years now and I have allways lugged a big Hiwatt amp and 4x12 or a Vox AC30 to my gigs with a very decent and versatile pedalboard. In that time I have been playing in several bands and we played our own material so I defined my own sound.
Only in recent years I've started gigging with a cover band and that changed the game for me. I have always promised myself that I would get me a multy-FX unit if I would play in a cover band so I would be able to program the correct sound per song. And, as you might have guessed, I did. Took me some time to decide which path to take but in the end I favoured the Kemper above the other options - and here we are!
I can find the sound-per-song I am looking for quite easily and nowadays I just turn up at a gig with nothing but a guitar and the profiler! This makes life so much easier!
