About Kemper Amps

With Kemper Amps, the future really is now. More than boasting an incredible range of sounds, Kemper Amps are extraordinary in their truly customizable interface.

What makes Kemper Amps unique is the ability to make digital models, known as ‘profiles’, of your own amplifiers. This allows you to capture the tone of your favourite amps and leave them safe and sound at home when you play live.

Another common usage is profiling amps you have used - but don’t own! - at a studio session: enabling you to take the tones of the studio on stage. All these tones are then easily switchable during your set - or even during your song! Fender cleans, Marshall rhythms and Boogie leads are all within your grasp!

Kemper Amps have made an extraordinary impact on the amp world since 2011. In fact, it is now common for boutique amp manufacturers to sell their own ‘authorised’ Kemper Profiles.

The Kemper range has expanded in the last few years so that they are more convenient than ever before. The collection now includes a pedalboard-style Profiler Stage and dedicated lightweight Kemper Kabinet.

  • Frequently Asked Questions about Kemper Amps

    Question: Who uses Kemper amps?
    Kemper Amps have been used by some of the biggest names in the industry. Famous fans include Mark Knopfler, Hans Zimmer, Guthrie Govan, Pat Metheny, Paul Gilbert.
    Question: How do Kemper amps work?
    How Kemper Amps work exactly is a secret Christoph Kemper guards closely. When you profile an amp, the Kemper runs particular frequencies through the amp which you then capture with a microphone and return to the Kemper for analysis. With this information, the Kemper can then reproduce to an astonishing degree the characteristics of the amp; not just the EQ but the compression and saturation.
    Question: Is a Kemper worth it?
    We think so! It’s quite extraordinary how much the Kemper can do. Although it is rightly known as an amp modeller, the Kemper is full of pedal effects including modulations, delays, reverbs. This means that a Kemper has the ability to replace a huge range of gear and therefore is much more portable and convenient than traditional amps and pedalboards. The recording functionality is impressive too, meaning the Kemper can easily be at the heart of your creative practice whether at home, in the studio or on stage.
    Question: What amps does Kemper come with?
    Kempers come pre-installed with around 300 rigs. There are more free rigs available than this but they have to be accessed using their ‘Rig Manager’ software. They recommend not installing too many rigs on the unit itself in order to keep the playing experience reasonably streamlined.
