RE: [Harp-L] Kinder AF
wow. i found it actually WARMS things up... yes, you must work the 3 knobs, but that's ez to accomplish. turning an amp on 10...priceless!
i spent about 10 min one afternoon messing with the pedal, found the settings i liked, marked a small dot so i'd always know where to have the knobs set, and i haven't looked back. the 2 outside knobs can be set low to not color the amp. but i LOVE what it does to my tone, so i have 'em set on about 2 o'clock. at a gig, you gotta turn the center knob till it starts to light the led. then you can melt the nitrocellulose off the nearest guitar!

> I suspect you'll get a range of opinions about the Kinder AF+. My impression is that most people really like it and often come to find it indispensable. I've had one a couple of months and use it through both a Meteor and a '68 Fender Princeton. I'll have to say that I'm not a big fan of it. It's probably due to my impatience--perhaps I haven't spent enough time working with the box to calibrate it to the mic's that I use but...I find that it diminishes the tube amp warmth that I'm looking for, making my sound become too harsh & electric. Additionally, when I use it, it feels like there's a microsecond delay between when I produce a sound with the harp and when I hear it pop out of the amp.
> My solution to feedback problems has been to get an amp so powerful (the Meteor) that it produces really terrific tone at a volume setting of 2 or so, and it still cuts through really nicely. With the other controls--tone, meat, presence, mid, etc--you can the overdrive tube warmth tone without cranking the amp to high volume levels, which usually lead to feedback problems with either my Princeton or my '65 Vibro Champ.
