"Kemper has revolutionized my thinking on guitar amplification. The sounds are completely true to life, matching faultlessly the models they are profiling, and unlike other amplifiers it is not subject to mic placement or level. A phenomenal achievement!" mentioned by Steve Winwood on Kemper Amps websitemore
In this Instagram photo posted by Tycho, his Kemper Profiler PowerHead can be seen (it's a guitar amp system for playing and creating custom profiles of real amplifiers, with 600W power amplifier onboard). He says: > "Been nice having a little break to work in the studio again, going to miss this place over the next few months on the road" In an [Instagram comment thread](https://www.instagram.com/p/BE_MVyRqUW-/), when asked how it compares to a real guitar, Tycho replies: > "it sounds better. in a perfect world with good studio access, amazing amps and mics and the knowledge to set it all up I'm sure you could get something great but this thing is just so convenient that if there is a difference in sound, it's far outweighed by the fact that you just get more done."more
"Peterson keeps it consistent and affordable on tour by leaving his Marshalls at home and running his guitars into a Line 6 Relay G55 wireless feeding a Kemper Profiler PowerHead that’s driving an EVH 5150III 4x12 loaded with Celestion Vintage 30s. All his effects—including wah—come from the Kemper, which Peterson controls with a Behringer FC1010 MIDI foot controller.," reads [this](http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/22661-rig-rundown-testaments-alex-skolnick-eric-peterson-steve-digiorgio) Premier Guitar rig rundown.more
Interviewer: "On that note, is there anything that’s really turning you on right now as a producer and player in the gear world?" WM: "Well, because our tour is skin and bones, I profiled all of my boutique amps with my Kemper Profiling amp and it’s absolutely spectacular. I’m going straight through the board and all of my boutique amps are profiled perfectly. I absolutely love my little Top Hat amps. They’re just beautiful, and I’ve got great old Silvertones, and vintage Fender White Higher Fidelity amps that I use in the studio a lot, and all of them are profiled and good to go in the Kemper. I’m a small amp girl in the studio, and I just truly believe you get better sounds that way."more
