Kemper Announces Profiler Rack & PowerHead
Kemper has introduced the Profiler Rack. Featuring a user interface nearly identical to the lunchbox version, the Kemper Profiler Rack is just as easy to operate. The layout is highly intuitive and already familiar to users of more traditional amps. The most important parameters, such as gain, tonestack and volume, are directly accessible. There are even dedicated knobs to control the reverb and delay from the front panel.
The Kemper Profiler represents a radical new approach to guitar sound. For decades, the electric guitarist has effectively been shackled to the tube amplifier as the only solution for getting that sound. This combination may indeed be glorious, but it is far from ideal; achieving consistent results between practice, studio, and touring situations continues to challenge the guitarist, just as it has since the early 1930?s. With the advent of the Kemper Profiler, everything has changed. For the first time in history, guitarists are free to create the most unique and individual tones that reflect the very essence of the player, and then capture these exact sounds into the digital domain with Kemper’s patented technology.
The Kemper Profiler PowerRack adds a built in 600 Watt power amp to the Kemper Profiler concept and turns the former recording solution into the most versatile guitar amplification system ever. Utilizing the Kemper CabDriver mode, guitarists now have the choice of playing through regular guitar cabinets or full range monitor systems. This extends the Kemper Profiler concept as the perfect solution for the rehearsal room and the stage.
The 600 Watt Class D amplifier was carefully selected for the guitar amplification system to guarantee utmost performance. After extensive listening tests, a lot of measuring and looking thoroughly at the typical sonic behavior of power amps for guitar amplification on the market, it became clear that only the best components are capable of delivering impressive results. The Amplifier delivers 600 Watts at 8 Ohm, 300 Watts at 16 Ohm, does not heat up (temperature can be monitored on display) and is lightweight.
Kemper Profiler also announced the new Kemper Profiler PowerHead, which adds a built in 600 Watt power amp to the Kemper Profiler concept and turns the former recording solution into the most versatile guitar amplification system ever. Utilizing the Kemper CabDriver mode, guitarists now have the choice of playing through regular guitar cabinets or full range monitor systems. This makes the Kemper Profiler PowerHead the complete solution for the studio, the rehearsal room and the stage.
The Kemper Profiler Rack will be available some time this Spring for $2025 / €1550; the Kemper Profiler PowerRack will be available around that same time as well for for $2730 / €2100.
