Muse, Biffy, NIN, Shikari amongst many others all use Kempers

 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

if i only wanted amp modelling i'd so be getting one tbh after watching a few videos it certainly seems like a great piece of kit

Just a joke hehe. He stopped using Kemper since I went to Moscow

 

:mad:

 

That's fair enough, I was originally going to put not another one, I don't know why but I have noticed that if a band member dies it tends to be the bassist for some reason :ninja:

I was originaly thinking of buying a vox ac30c2 to build my rig around but recording and silent practice etc would be more difficult, so since the kemper is only 300£ more

I thought that Id just be getting that, since it already profiles the ac30 amongst a ton of others.. And you can profile new amps or buy profiles online.

If you want really great recordings, it's better to buy real Vox. Although the latest Vox gen sounds scary :wtf: older gen's is much better

 

I bought Kempers in mid summer 2014, and now I have only 10-20 profiles that sounding good.

All I can think of is Denmark Street in London and one Yamaha store just off Oxford Street.

 

I haven't seen any chains that would match Andertons size apart from Dawsons Music, the one in Reading is quite good and only 30 minutes on a train away from Paddington. But then you're probably better going to Andertons at that point.

Guize, I think it's about time I put some pickups into the wangcaster since I want to kind of use it as well as repair the tone/jack issues. Any recommendations for a pair of single coils that'll sound somewhat b33fy/useful?

 

I know that seems really vague but maybe something a tad hotter than a standard strat.

Go for some strat size P90's.

 

Failing that, you could get one of the JB Jnr humbucker things? I've heard they are good.

Any recommendations for a cheapo 7 string for budget chuggz? :awesome:

 

Edit: the budget shecter stuff seems pretty good?

In my experience, cheap extended range guitars have awful pickups. So if you want a decent sounding one, take that into account.

Need some advice, was thinking of selling most of my guitar stuff to go down the route of getting a kemper, is it a good idea to get the official foot controller or are there better value MIDI options?

 

Also is it worth saving a bit of money and getting a separate cheapo power amplifier as opposed to the built in option?

Marshall DBS-series bass amps. Bought 7200+7041 originally because of the massive Chris-fanboying and the good reviews the amp had, but dauym. It's one damn awesome amp. One of the best bass amps I've ever used. Love it.

Does anyone have an recommendations for mixing headphones? (Yes, I know monitors are better but they just aren't suitable for me right now. Plus I need new headphones.) I'd prefer closed back with low impedance to avoid needing an amp.

My budget would be around £120-140.

Thanks for any suggestions in advance.

So I’ve got a p90 guitar I want to put some Matt style pick ups in.

 

I think I’m going to rule out the Manson p90 kit because it looks like it is specifically designed to be used in the dual bridge configuration as a large humbuker so I’m looking at the 2 bare knuckle options.

 

These are obviously named after muse tracks, the supermassive is around 10k in output and the Stockholm is 15k in the bridge position.

 

Anyone have these pickups? If so which do you think is the better more diverse option?

Matt doesn't use either of those, his P90's are all low output I believe. It's interesting that there's not a soapbar equivalent to the Mississippi Queen in the range.

Axe-fx ii amps:

 

Cleans: AC-30 with matching cab.

Dirt: Plexi with cab no. 59

More distorted: VH-4 channel 3 with cab no. 59.

 

That's what I use. Add effects where necessary.
