Time for another Kemper Rig Showcase and in this episode Have Guitar! takes a look at the Peavey JSX rig pack from ReampZone. Described by ReampZone as a monster of high gain, tight and fierce – designed for metal heads and that’s right but it doesn’t stop there. This amp head (or rather these profiles) will not stop at metal, it’s fully capable of dirty rock to raw blues and it does it all very well. So far this JSX pack offers 16 direct profiles and 20 studio profiles for your Kemper Profiling Amp with a promise of more profiles coming. So, in this Rig Showcase Have Guitar! will give you a bunch of sound examples, mostly lined recordings, side-by-side comparison of profiles in the same gain level and in-the-mix examples – played with a Fender Stratocaster American Standard (Shawbucker and single-coils) and an ESP Phoenix II (Seymour Duncan JB / ’59), two sound wise very different guitars to bring you a wider perspective of how these profiles actually sound.
The original amp is a signature model for Joe Satriani, designed to offer lots of sound possibilities, from vintage to modern triple XXX-style. The three channel 120W amp produces sounds from clean to heavy/hard rock, offers high gain and low gain inputs together with a “fat switch” that changes the timbre of the crunch and ultra channels. It also features a built-in noise gate for those screaming high gain sounds.
A big thanks to ReampZone for letting Have Guitar! try out/showcase these profiles – I hope you will like the video as much as I enjoyed this profile pack!
