    Phenomenal amp. If you ever get the change to try one out, you should. This is added to my stable that includes a Marshall Origin 20H and Blackstar 10W Anniversary series EVH amp.jpg

    I have been using a 5150 profile on the Kemper. While the Kemper sounds OK, it still doesn’t compare to the feel of playing through a real tube amp.

    I recently got a Blackstar HT40 Mk II and was laughing at how much gain it has on tap. No overdrive or distortion pedal needed with this one.

    Just plug straight in and play.

    Before Covid hit my main gigging amp was a 5150 III 6L6 50 Watt V2.
    It's a KILLER amp.

    I was in a variety cover band that played Pop, Classic Rock, Modern Rock, Hard Rock, Soul, Blues etc etc. This amp covered it all. I only used the Blue Channel and use my guitar's volume to clean up.

    Here it is at a gig

    KUDOs to who ever set up your sound system as well, nicely balanced audio all around. I could clearly hear everybody. Nothing beats a band that knows how to work together and support each other in service of the overall performance.
