My CLR is acting up. At the same time, my Glaswerks is not functioning. Fuse looks ok, but it’s behaving like a blow fuse.
I didn’t see a visible fuse for the CLR, I hope it has some kind of surge protection.
Didn’t find anything in the manual.
I picked up a Rocket clone today.
First check: low volume cleans, big A+.
Second check: edge of breakup, very nice
Third check: Full on distortion... what’s going on here? Compressed and flubby.
So I thought maybe it’s the speaker... started with a greenback, a V30 was a little better but...
And learned very quickly that I can’t improve on the many profiles I already have.
I’ve always loved the tones from these amps, whether it be Brad Gillis or John Sykes. It nails those tones. But so does the Kemper!
But I think I’m gonna keep this 75 lb boat anchor for sentimental reasons, and...
I like a Greenback / G12H30 combination.
I love Alnicos for clean tones, but not so much more gainier tones. What would be a good pairing for classic/hard rock tones?
Also looking for a combination that will make a Vintage 30 (ironically) less modern sounding.
I'm into cleans, blues, classic...
I'm thinking of starting a business making Kemper Profiles of somewhat rare, hard-to-find amps.
In order to build some cred, I'm putting out some samples for your demoing pleasure.
First up, an amp that when you run flat out, the plates may glow, and the resulting sound is magic...

The X88 is SOLD clone of the Soldano X88R preamp. To my ears it has a lot of similarity to the CAE SE+ preamp. This preamp was completely off my radar until I heard the model in the axe fx. SOLD
Next up, the Big Fish, which is a clone of the Bogner Fish preamp. I picked this one up because I’ve...
I have a nice American Professional Tele. Love it... but the high E is too bright. I know that's part of the charm of a Tele, but it's too strident.
I back down the tone control a bit and that helps but it feels like something is lost.
Could anything in the architecture have anything to do...
This is the early, no headphone jack version. The unit had a broken USB jack that has been repaired by Fractal, and it's back, updated and ready to rock. No blemishes, dings, dents. Unit is as close to new as you can get.
Not trying to make money on this. My price is my cost after all taxes and...
You have to grab the free profile:
MM-PRS HX/DA HX ... the Allman profile is good too
I've never heard or felt a better Plexi tone. Make sure you get the volume up there and get some speaker interaction.
That amp is sorta under the radar, I think
I wanted to definitively have a winner. No such luck...
So I thought I'd share my overall impressions, and Axe III comparisons.
First of all, some caveats/assumptions:
I've mostly been focusing on the MBRITT profiles, because they seem to be consistently better than most (with the exception...
I'd read about country players using Vox amps, but today I finally got around to trying that combo (Vox/Tele).
Now I see why: piano-like low end, nice vocal mids, and amazing clarity. And this is with a AC15.
I'm learning country licks mostly for the first time, and loving it!
Every time I hear Europa by Santana, I get goosebumps on my arms, and my scalp gets this weird endorphin triggered rush.In the earlier parts of that song, you can tell he's barely holding back the onslaught, the guitar is slow and mellow, but the notes still have limitless sustain. Amazing.
So a short history of my Axe FX use:
2007 - Axe FX Standard through guitar amp return ... I upgraded to the Ultra and II along the way, but amplified the same way.
FF to 6 months ago. I had dabbled with FRFR on brief occasions, never owned the gear, but never bonded either. When the Line6...
Im using an Axe II
I know Pete is known for using Hiwatts, is this the amp on this tune?
If so the Fane cab is not the right one
I am able to get a dead on Aqualung tone using Hiwatt/Fanes, but it doesn't sound like Pete's Hiwatt tones (I could have the wrong amp or cab).
What I would've...
I thought I could find this data via Google. Only for guitars...
Fractal, Line6 et al must have a line on this information.
I'd love to see a graph. I know modeling must be nibbling away at tube amps, but I dont know to what degree.
