The KEMPER PROFILER has changed the world of guitar tone significantly. The acclaimed KEMPER PROFILING technology and the brand-new Liquid Profiles provide the best amp tones anytime and anywhere possible – offering consistent accuracy and also a convenient package for touring, traveling, and studio use.
The KEMPER PROFILER Player is the latest and the most complete serving of professional amp tones and studio-grade FX per footprint.

And, what’s more, the Player indeed itself is already the arena-grade touring rig that fits in every guitar bag. It offers the full arsenal of KEMPER amp tones (yes, the Amp section of the Player sounds identical to the amp section of its famous Big Brothers – it loads any amp PROFILE from the vast library of existing free and commercial PROFILEs), selected FX settings, IR loading, and switching capabilities – at home, in the studio, in the rehearsal room, and on stage.

Along with the standard effects, you will find algorithms rarely seen in a guitar processor – these include an authentic rotary speaker and studio-grade reverbs, offering amazing rooms, large halls, even lush, pad-like ambiences and many more.
