Hello. I think the Kemper is the best thing in the world. When I got it I started playing guitar more because I had every tone with desired effects right there. The one thing it can't do is artificially make up for the space before the microphone and the cabinet. At some point I am pretty sure I will be selling it for a real amp of similar value or more. When I get a new amp I will then need to re-buy some pedals. Two different worlds here.
