800 PACK – 46 Profiles
M Britt 800 Pack is for the long-haired tones of the 80’s when hair metal bands roamed the Earth. The earlier British metal-front amps turned into master volume monsters with preamp gain for days. These 800-series amps were some of the most recorded tones of the era and I got my hands on a few different specimens, including a 100w 2203 clone, wicker front 800, as well as an original 50w chrome faced Jubilee and his 100w reissue cousin. If you have an appetite for some kind of audio destruction or just want to rock your blues away, this may be the pack for you.
800 Pack requires 3.0 firmware or newer and while most amps were profiled using my trusty 3rd Power cabinet, the new separation algorithms make it easier to get more great sounds by switching to your favorite cabs as well. The Clips below were recording using ProTools 10 with a Propellerhead Balance interface with no plug-ins or eq or processing using a Gibson ’58 Les Paul RI with vintage output humbuckers.

Profile Pack 1 (60 profiles) seeks to recreate* a collection of boutique and vintage amps from my personal collection as well as contributions from my friends (thanks guys!). They cover a variety of styles, from clean sounds that stay warm and full (also great for pedalboard-based set ups) to mid-gain and lead gain British sounds. Some of these profiles have been the basis for my live presets for the past couple of years and sound great in the studio as my session buddies can attest as well.
Below are sound samples from 40 out of the 60 profiles included in the Kemper Profile Pack. I will also include a few other variations of some of the amps, but these should give a good idea of the profile sounds. All of the snippets below were played on my red Anderson Cobra with 3 P90's. All of the clips below were recorded directly into ProTools 10 thru a Propellerhead Balance interface. There is no eq, compression, or plug-in on these tracks. Please excuse the sloppiness and tuning.

|The New M Britt 3rd Power CSR Pack is a collection of 60 studio profiles (amp & cab profiled together) of the 3rd Power Citizen Gain Reverb 40 Prototype amp. The CSR is a 2-channel amp with a blackface style clean channel and a british-voiced gain channel with multiple tone stacks for different flavors of gain. All in all, this amp is meant to go from clean to scream but retain a toneful flavor throughout. The actual amp features seamless channel switching, a tube powered reverb with independent levels for each channel and an fx loop. There are profiles of the clean channel through 3 separate speaker cabinets for everything from an AlNiCo speaker for a more Vox-y flavor to a crisp Vintage 30 to my usual Classic Lead 80 for a warmer tone. The gain profiles were done at various tone stack positions and at different voltage levels (from brown to supercharged) and there are blended cab varieties for even more options. The gain profiles are thick with lots of harmonics and large frequency response, very full in all frequencies. There are some with a more cutting top end and others that are voiced slightly warmer so as not to get shrill at full stage volume. The sample clips below were recorded directly into ProTools 10 via a Propellerhead Balance interface with no added compression, eq, or processing of any sort. Clean channel samples were done using my Tom Anderson Cobra w/ 3 Antiquity P90’s and the Gain channel samples were played on my Duesenberg Starplayer with Grand Vintage bridge humbucker. Hopefully you will hear something you like (but it likely won’t be my sloppy playing).||It has taken me a while to put out a new pack, partially because of all of the profiles I already had. I wanted to make sure if I put out more that they'd be something special. I think this pack is pretty darn special. The 2020 Pack contains some of my all time favorite amps that cover all the "food groups". From the best vintage Plexi I've ever heard to a couple of my favorite AC type circuits to some classic CA tweed, blackface, and brownface tones to unique amps that fall somewhere in between. As I tried to keep my personal amp collection to a minimum (only so much room in the house), I tried to find what I thought were the best of each food group and hang on to it. Along the way, there were a few other gems that I was lucky enough to get my hands on along the way too. The end result is a pack that might be my best one yet. And with the new 7.x firmware revisions, it's easier than ever to import fx Presets and Performances, so I'm included some of those as well. Some are basic Performance banks for easy plug-n-play use and others are song-inspired tones and others are just fun tones for inspiration. Check out the demo vids and information document as well. Thanks for checking it out! *These rigs and presets were created in firmware 7.x and contain the filetype .krig, so users will need 7.x firmware and the latest version of Rig Manager to import these files. Updates for Rig Manager and Kemper are available for download at the official Kemper website.|
Although not widely known, these amps are loved by the few that stumble upon them, including Jon Herrington, from Steely Dan's band. They are truly unique in that they use two complete sets of power tubes (el84 & el34) in series. This gives the amp it's unique tone and lots of options for tone tailoring.
The two-channel amp has basic controls for each channel (gain, volume, and tone) and then the 100w el34 power section has an entire eq section, not just a master volume and presence knob. I highly recommend you check them out in person if you can. Graydon at Guytron was kind enough to get mine up and running after the 2010 Nashville flood to which it fell victim. I think it sounds better than ever now. I tried to get a variety of tones from shimmering cleans to over-saturated lead tones. Check them out.
D-Pack is my collection of D*mble and D*mble-inspired amps for the Kemper Profiling Amplifier. For reference, using an original Overdrive Special along with other great D-inspired amps like Fuchs, Ceriatone, and Two Rock, I've gathered some of my favorite tones from these iconic amps. 60 profiles wasn't enough to fully capture the full panorama of these great amps, but I tried to get some usable and (hopefully) inspiring tones to play--everything from the glassy cleans to the over-saturated, smooth, singing lead tones.
As with any amp that is capable of such tonal variation due to the mini-toggle switch settings, and different inputs, etc., these profiles are not meant to capture every setting of the amps, but are merely snapshots of my favorite settings. The clips below highlight how subtle the differences are between the different amps and even different settings within the same amp. This pack may not be for everyone, but hopefully some of you may find some joy in playing the dynamic D-Pack as much as I do.

These profiles are spot on! Thank you Mr. Britt for the great job you’ve done profiling all of these wonderful amps for us.
These sound fantastic. I really love some of the lower gain Rigs. They have just enough of everything – bite, definition, and growl.
I own two Silver Jubilee amps and I have to say that those profiles sound as good as the real deal. The Jubilee is a pretty loud amp and it has to be cranked in order to push the valves a bit and get that nice tone. If you want to have your Marshall tone in the middle of the night when you want to practice or at any gig without going through the back pain of carrying a 100W or 50W Marshall, than this pack is for you. Great quality, I highly recommend those profiles!
