That's quite overpriced, Ben. You can import a new one for considerably less than that, even with tax.
yeah I know. I am tempted by one for covers gigs however, or some sort of direct amp anyway. Would be nice to carry less gear when playing for a pittance in the corner of a pub.
I remember replacing a guy in a band once. I had fancy-pants amps, rack gear and guitars. He had a fucking Westone and a POS Peavey combo. We were paid the same... :-(
Don’t forget you were providing the stage lights too :thumbup:

Pickup an AX8 next time one pops up; they're getting cheaper all the time.
Loving it so far

I have never used expression pedals before. What would you Kemper users recommend for starters? Keep in mind I'm not gigging... just mucking about at home...

I use two Mission exp pedals with the built in switch. I use one for Vol/Wah (can switch between the two) and the other for Morph. I’d not change a thing. Unfortunately those pedals are medium-expensive tho
