We hope you had a swift start in 2020. And 2020 is shifting into full throttle already as we are getting ready for the NAMM show in California. You will find us again in Hall D at #3720.

What Kemper have shown last year as a proof of concept is now a shipping ready product thanks to all the feedback we received from the community:

THE KEMPER KABINET AND KEMPER KONE!

A LIGHTWEIGHT, POWERFUL, SPEAKER CABINET AND AN EXCLUSIVE SPEAKER DESIGN for THE KEMPER PROFILER™ WITH A CHOICE OF 16 DIFFERENT SPEAKER CHARACTERS (AKA IMPRINTS)

The KEMPER Kabinet™ is specially designed for the PROFILER. The KEMPER Kabinet is a combination of the KEMPER Kone™ loudspeaker and an extensive speaker tone mining technology developed by KEMPER making it possible to digitally „imprint“ various speaker characteristics onto one single cabinet.

The KEMPER Kone™ is a 12“ full-range speaker which is exclusively designed by Celestion for KEMPER. It is controlled and driven by the KEMPER PROFILER’s DSP to an ultra-linear (full range) frequency response, using a dedicated DSP algorithm. In contrast to the conventional idea of a full-range system, the radiation pattern of the KEMPER Kone has been narrowed towards the physics of a classic guitar speaker chassis, so that even the full range sound carries a distinct guitar speaker character, unlike regular PA speakers or monitor speakers.

Among the imprints, you will find the finest choice of well-known guitar speakers from Celestion, JBL, Jensen and many more, as well as rare and particular speakers from other manufacturers like Oxford or Goodmans Audio. And more speaker imprints will be added via future software updates.

Currently the following Speaker Imprints will become available with the PROFILER:
  • Celestion Vintage 30
  • Celest G12M Greenback
  • Celest G12M Creamback
  • Celestion G12 Blue
  • Celestion G12H Anniv
  • Celestion G12H Herit
  • Celestion G12-100
  • Celestion G12T
  • EVM12L Blacklabel
  • Eminence MFD
  • Goodmans Audiom 61
  • Oxford 12L6
  • Jen P12Q
  • Jen P12R
  • Jen C12N Ceramic
  • Jen Vintage P10R
  • Jen Vintage C10R
  • JBL D120F 12'
  • JBL 2110H 8'
The KEMPER Kabinet can be driven by the power amp of a PROFILER PowerHead™ or PowerRack™, as well as by utilizing any external power amp. When using external stereo amplifiers, driving two Kabinets in stereo is possible.

The KEMPER KONE speaker is also available as a replacement speaker for existing guitar cabinets. The KEMPER Kone is available as a single unit and 2 and 4 speaker sets for 2 x 12" and even 4 x 12" guitar cabinets.

Availability of the KEMPER Kabinet and also The KEMPER KONE as a replacement speaker for any existing guitar cab is expected towards the end of Q1 2020. The estimated price for the Kabinet in USD will be in the 450,- range, The KONE is expected to retail in the US for USD 165,-
