        I give the Kemper and the AxeFX equal marks, but the next step down is a big one, although still usable like the Mustang and a fraction of the price.




        i absolutely agree the mustang is cool... i didn't mention the kemper in relation to the mustang, just the eleven rack... and specifically to Gas Man, who i know buys a lot of gear



        i don't however give the axefx and the kemper equal marks... not for guitar tones that sound (and feel) like guitar amps... i believe the kemper to be way ahead

            Hmmm, I'm getting a bit confused, when the arguments about the axe fx II come in here. But I take it either one is better, but they are both quite a bit more than the $699 for the Eleven Rack. Am I to infer that the Mustang amp provides much of what the Eleven Rack provides? I would think the Eleven Rack would be better than that, but OTOH, I haven't run it through anything but its own combo system so far.



            But yeah, I could possibly be persuaded to pulling the plug on my 11 R order.



            Thanks for the comments.

            Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!

                Okay, that comment came in while I was typing. That helps my bit of confusion that gets going there. And hopefully, next year I'll be the lean mean GAS Man and go on a gear diet. Either that or get myself committed.

                    i'll jump out because i don't mean to jack the thread... my intention was to be helpful, and see you save your money in the long term... over the last few years i spent a lot of money on amps... a lot ... since getting the kemper i have no interest at all in amps...all my tube amps are gone... it's everything i need, especially for recording



                    i'll get some clips up soon

                        I couldn't get into my M I, and sold it. For modelling, I prefer to use Amplitube 3 or Scuffham amps. Since I am not gigging at this point, this is fine for me. For actual playing out, I have a BOSS GT10 (which is up in a cupboard) a Peavey Classic 30 (which is down in the cellar) and a Blackheart Killer Ant (which rarely gets used).

                            What do you guys run these Axe Fx II's and Kempers into? Power monitors? Cabs? I'm curious.

                                If you're planning on gigging with it, you might want to get a III.



                                I have a II, and use it for late night jamming (just like you mentioned above). I plug the output of my computer sound into the aux, plug the headphones into the amp, and jam away to backing tracks, record direct w/the usb, whatever - it's awesome for that.



                                I did play it w/a band rehearsal in my basement, but chickened out taking it to an actual gig - just didn't think it would be loud enough.



                                The III, at 100w, should cut it at a small sized club.




                                Sweet thanks!

                                I was wondering if it would cut it or not. For what I am using it for right now I think the II would work. However if I were to add a few more members to the group, especially a drummer. I would be kicking myself for not getting something a little bigger.

                                They have a used Mustang IV downtown here for a good price. I might take a look at that. Overall size and weight might scare me back to only one speaker but we will see.
