Have Guitar takes a look at the built-in distortion effects / stompboxes in the Kemper Profiling Amp. There are seven of them; distortion, overdrives and fuzz… all trying to emulate the real deal like TS-808, MXR Distortion+, Electro Harmonix Big Muff and the ProCo Rat – to mention some of them. All of these seven distortion effects will be applied to the same profile (Orange TH30 (Modded) from ReampZone) in this video to make it easier to hear how they affect the sound and also to make it easier to hear the difference between these Kemper effects. And what would a rundown like this be worth if we didn’t turn the knobs? I’ve tested them all in four different settings (where possible as some of them doesn’t have a tone control) for maximum diversity.
Some say the distorion effects in the Kemper Profling Amp are sub-par but I really don’t know if I agree on that statement. Now, many profiles comes with gain enough allright and some profiles has been created withreal stompboxes in the chain as boosts but that doesn’t mean you cant activate these built-in effects to tweak and/or color the profile according to your taste… you kan keep the gain up but the volume up to strenghten the tone a bit, color the sound with some more / less treble or low / high pass filters through the tone control. The options are endless and the hunt for the perfect sound never stops!
