Top Jimi '59 Tweed Twinn Pack for the Kemper Profiling Amplifier
Seeking to Recreate the Sound of: 1959 Fender 5F8-A Twin (80 Watts)
Speaker Used During the Profiling Process: 12" Celestion Greenback
Min to Max Gain Range (Scale: 0 to 10): 0 to 4
Profile Type: Studio (10 profiles) and Merged (9 profiles)
Jim's Comments: "These profiles give absolutely killer tone reminiscent of the big tweed amps. We got better-sounding profiles using Celestion Greenback speakers instead of the Jensen speakers found in the original amp. This is a common mod done to these amps (ask Joe Bonamassa or Keith Richards). Gives the tone more mids with less highs and lows, and a smoother breakup."
Fender 5F8-A Twin Background Info: Back in the day the Twin was Fender's amp for the big stages. Designed to give lots of clean headroom at high volumes, it still gave a moderate overdrive when cranked up. The 1959 5F8-A Twin used a pair of rectifiers and (4) 5881 power tubes driving two 12" Alnico Jensens.
