Step 1: Buy a Kemper
Step 2: Buy these profiles http://bighairyprofiles.com/item/bhp-dmtr-profile-pack

Not sure how accurate (or financially sound) the above advice is :lol:

I know Doyle of Misfits runs TWO TGP-3's through Ampeg SVT bass amps. When we played with them a few gigs in FL his live tone was crushing! I also love his tone on the American Psycho and Famous Monsters albums.

I owned the 75 watt head version with a Toroidal power transformer. One of the better do it all Fender/Marshall channel switchers I have owned. They are stellar amps, and don't blame you for wanting one. It was covered in really ugly Tweed though, I traded it for some gear back in the 90s, don't remember what. Those and the Matchless were standouts from that era, and Classics.

Right, the first channel is supposed to be a clone of a Fender Bassman, the second a Marshall PLexi, and three is basically what you hear on "Three Strange Days" and Core by STP.. right?


As someone who was not super into STP, hard to say. The first 2 are correct, with the 3rd being a more modern channel, but a little dark , I could see grunge tones there. I know STP used these, but it was More AIC for me. I think of of it like, i shine a thrash tone but a little darker and thicker. More dark than a Plexi, but it as heavy as Death metal tones. I would play one first, see if it is what you are going for. That is super hard, because they are mostly made to order now. I played mine for like a month at Speir music in Garland, Tx, before buying it. Bought the amp and a Valley Arts Larry Carlton guitar with P-90 style pickups. Sounded kick ass, and I was in a huge Carlton, Ford kick at the time. Lived on the 1st channel, and 2nd for leads, 3rd only for heavier rhythm tones. Would love to revisit one again, but not too available or cheap. This was in 1992 by the way, so a little hazey. Sonny Landreth plays one, and I like it better than his Dumble live. Sounds amazing.

...7 months later I get around to checking out the vids on the Kemper equivalents. There are some good sounding profiles in here.

I regret to inform you that Albert Ross suffered a fatal arrow wound to the face a few months ago.

Sorry for your loss.
