I really like the idea of having an "amp" at the end of the chain to do quick global changes with knobs.
I'm presuming they're not here yet, KNNZ ordered one in from Australia although it ended up not being able to be shipped :thumbdown:

Considering one of these, not interested in amp modelling but keen on something fixed to the pedalboard for headphone use or powering a speaker cab (Barefaced maybe). When is this available here or is that a stupid question?
What other options are there, Ive seen the Seymour Duncan 170 as well, any others with headphone out, speaker cab power?

Quilter microblock 45. It'll run your rig and it cuts off the speaker out when you use the headphone jack. And it's single pedal size.

Iridium won't power a speaker cab, my understanding is it is an amp simulator and impulse response host.
They keep telling me tone is in the fingers, but I have yet to see a "look at my fingers" thread.

Yeah it's only line level output. Not gonna drive anything but headphones or a powered speaker amplifier.

So, did anybody buy one of these in the end? I'm looking at one but it doesn't seem to do the obvious thing it should which is to allow you to footswitch between the three amps. That and a boost would be perfect.

Edit: Duh... They offer the following to take care of that.

I was watching a bunch of reviews on them myself last night, but in the end decided I would just stick with the Katana for the money.

Do you still have the Kemper?
