    I suppose, but tossing one in a drawer or on a shelf would be way simpler. Don't get me wrong - by all means, do what makes sense to you. Sacrificing a rack space and spending more than twice the cost of the HB (on a used unit that *has* to work when called upon.........would make me wonder). I'd almost think about getting two of the HBs as a backup for the backup and still be money ahead.

    My opinion is worth what you paid for it. :) Feel free to ignore my advice....I actually do that more often than I should. ;)

    Despite your valued suggestion I have found someone who wanted to trade my ENGL for his Palmer Macht. So I'm set I think. But I appreciate all your insights.

    Your main problem is here ! :rolleyes:

    I don't understand there's any discussion about that in 2024, ....

    Can't those kind of sound guys do a training to know new devices that appeared from 2000 ? 8o X/

    Truer words have never been spoken.

    Poweramp for modelers Kemper, Axe-FX, Quad Cortex etc. or seperate pre-amp


    - 3u rack mount
    - tube poweramp powered by EL 84s which have been looked upon lately and were deemed fully operational and in no need to replace by a technician
    - 2 x 35 W power

    - 2 channels, each controllable seperately, also with a foot switch (not part of the sale)
    - 2 volume and presence potis for each channel plus one gain/boost switch for the first channel

    Poweramp is in good condition, but used. I'm not the first owner and you can see it's not brand new, which is to be expected by a 20+ yo unit. Has a few sratches and dings, but nothing serious.

    Original pictures will follow.

    I also consider trades with Palmer Macht 402, Matrix GT 800 and similar.

    Pickup in Recklinghausen, Germany. Delivery within Germany approx. EUR 20,-. Delivery within Europe upon request.

    Thanks for the comment

    I'd be shocked if you could find a rackmount-anything within your price range. Ritter Amps (Camplifier) will set you back a fair chunk of change.

    I was thinking Palmer Mach or a used Matrix GT 800 maybe? something along those lines.

    If you're so inclined, buy an IcePower amp module and build one yourself. This is what I did. IcePower is the same manufacturer Seymour Duncan's Powerstage amps use, as well as the amp in the Powerhead/Rack and Powered Kab.

    Not sure I'm handy enough to do this. I can barely change a light bulb I'm not sure I'm qualified enough to do this. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    What is the ohm rating of your cab?

    I have a Camplifier 290. It's an older version with 90w stereo, or 180w mono.

    I am not convinced that 25w would be enough on a SS amp, but I have no experience with that.

    I believe it's 8 Ohm. I've recently changed the speakers and I don't quite remember, but I believe it's 8.

    As mentioned, this is purely a backup scenario as my main output would go direct into the PA. I don't need fancy, I just need working.

    Hi all,

    I have an unpowered Kemper and during practice I go straight into the PA since we use InEars. I do have a Poweramp (ENGL 920 I believe, 2x35 Watt) which goes into a 4x12 Cab. Usually during Gigs I would also ask to go directly into the PA. However, there are venues that wish to stick to micing up the cab rather than having the direct-out from the Kemper. For this reason I still have the Engl in my rack. My back would appreciate it a lot though, if I had a poweramp that weighs less and does not have tubes.

    I have considered to go the Camplifier route and have a power section built in. For EUR 179,- I can get the 25 Watt version which honestly is not far off the 35 Watt that currently power my 4x12. I'm just wondering if it's enough. The stage version would easy my worries, as it should have more than enough power, but it costs EUR 430,- at which point I feel I could get a used solid-state. But which one? I used to be better informed in this topic and still have some names like Matrix in my head.

    Any suggestions or opinions?

    Hi all,

    I have a questions and it may have something to do with me not fully understanding stereo.

    In my band both me and the other guitarist play a kemper. In situations where someone takes over a lead guitar or melodic part, the rythm section is down to one guitar. My question is:

    Is there a possibility to switch between mono and stereo play live?

    I know Meshuggah do it with regular amps. They have an A/B-Switch and when one guitarist plays a lead the other essentially plays via two amps. I figured since both of us have Kempers and can go out stereo to the PA this should also somehow work, shouldn't it?

    Hello everyone,

    I just got a Kemper, yay me! Now I'm trying to get used to it. I came from an Axe-Fx Standard. Although trying out all the profiles is pretty cool and eventually I will want to find a new sound, right now I still need it for some live gigs. So I thought: Why not profile my old Axe-Fx presets for now and then, when I got more time, I'll find a new(ish) sound.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen a guide or at least someone mentioning, that it is possible to profile the Axe-Fx by itself (without PowerAmp and Cabinet/Microphone). However, back then I didn't have a Kemper and I only thought "neat". Now I'm trying to find a something about the topic, but all I get are videos and threads with comparisons of these two machines.

    Anybody here that can help me, or point me in the right direction?
    Plz keep in mind: I've just gotten the Kemper, so I am not used to it, so a "How to for Dummies" would be appreciated.


    Bist du nur am Kemper als Rackversion interessiert? Ich hätte ein Axe Fx Standard samt Engl Endstufe zum Tausch zur Verfügung. Der Kemper hat mich seit jeher interessiert, also die Profiling Funktion und ich würde das Teil gerne mal ausprobieren, daher die Wechselgedanken. Das Axe selber ist im super Zustand und funktioniert einwandfrei. Könnte beides auch in einem Rack verschicken, falls gewünscht.

    Ich arbeite übrigens in Duisburg, also wäre ein Treffen möglich.
