Every now and then, a product comes along that is so deep and multi-faceted, it makes my job as a reviewer extremely challenging. The Kemper Profiler is one such product.

Already spoken of in reverent, hushed tones by a cadre of top studio-ace guitarists, Kemper has recently added a large library of bass-specific profiles that turn this piece of hardware into a plug-and-play solution for sessionistas, Rock Gods, or anyone who wants to have the entire world of amplification and effects conveniently at their disposal.
