Now all the KEMPER PROFILER power in a stomp-size machine for the pedalboard.
Kemper GmbH released the KEMPER PROFILER Player, the most complete serving of professional amp tones and studio-grade FX per footprint.
Requiring only the floorboard space of two standard distortion pedals the PROFILER Player turns any pedal board into an arena-grade touring rig. And, what’s more, the Player indeed itself is already the arena-grade touring rig that fits in every guitar bag. It offers the full arsenal of KEMPER amp tones (yes, the Amp section of the Player sounds identical to the Amp section of its famous Big Brothers – it loads any amp Profile from the vast library of existing free and commercial Profiles), selected FX settings, IR loading, and switching capabilities – at home, in the studio, in the rehearsal room, and on stage. Made in Germany.
This is simply because the acclaimed KEMPER Profiling Technology, including the new and acclaimed Liquid Profiling tech, the unparalleled KEMPER FX, all combined with seamless switching now comes in one straightforward stomp pedal-sized package. The PROFILER Player features three freely assignable foot switches and the essential control knobs and buttons. The comfortable on-board LED system provides detailed visual feedback on the current device status at all times. For digging deeper into every aspect of the FX, enter Rig Manager, the only guitar amp control and editing solution that is available for all relevant platforms. It works on iPhones, iPads, Android Phones, Android Tablets, Kindle Fire, macOS, and Windows. All are available for free from the App Stores and the Kemper Website.
The Player offers a massive, well-curated selection of 136 different FX settings from the legendary KEMPER PROFILER FX arsenal of over 444 FX presets in total. All the important tools of the trade are just ready to be engaged with the next switch!
The Player’s signal chain comprises 4 effect blocks in addition to the amplifier stack. Up to two effects can be placed “pre” the amp stack, and another two “post” the amp. The post-amp modules of the effect chain are ideal for delay and reverb effects. Both delay and reverb offer “spillover” at any time, meaning the sonic tail is not cut off when changing to another Rig.
The Player connects seamlessly to one or two KEMPER Power Cabinets, making it a combo amp solution with the „cab-in-the-room“ sound.
Size does matter! Musicians need to be mobile and flexible at all times. But they also always need to be the best version of themselves in terms of musicality and tone – now it is easy because the Player is here and with you! All the time!

About the KEMPER PROFILER – The Legacy
The advent of the Kemper Profiler has changed the world of guitar tone significantly. The acclaimed Kemper Profiling technology provided for the first time access to the best amp tones anytime and anywhere possible – offering consistent accuracy and also a convenient package for touring, traveling, and studio use: The PROFILER Head, the PROFILER Rack, their powered versions and finally the PROFILER Stage as the all-in- PROFILER and performance board.
This is why the PROFILER is the number-one choice and go-to platform for touring guitarists the world over. But KEMPER didn’t stop there. The PROFILER is a platform, indeed. And it is continually updated and constantly elevated to the next level in sound quality and convenience of workflows.
Just recently the newly added KEMPER Liquid Profile Technology has united the modeling and the profiling worlds by combining the accuracy of an amp profile with the controllability of circuit-modeling and thus filled the final technology gap. But, of course, KEMPER’s mission is not accomplished yet. There are a lot of software features in the works, watch out, you will be stunned!
