Here’s a brand new profile pack from TMS Profiles – the JCM8 2203 Combo! This profile pack recreates the sound from a Marshall JCM800 2203 Combo amplifier from the 80’s. Does it sound like a Marshall? You bet!

This pack brings 80 Merged profiles and 8 Direct profiles, profiled with ten different cabs like Mesa Rectifier V30 4×12 , Marshall 1960B Creamback 4×12 and Zilla Fatboy 2×12 V30 to mentioned some. Some pedals have been included too; Tube Screamer, MXR Badass OD and Boss SD-1.

Those 88 Kemper profiles goes from clean to high gain and guarantees a classic Marshall tone suitable for anything from pop to metal. I’ve also added the Tone City Sweet Cream overdrive pedal to boost or color some of the demos.

Sweet Cream by Tone City – overdrive pedal review & sound demos

Demo by Have Guitar!

Intrigued by the sound a fellow Swedish guitar player got out of the Tone City Sweet Cream, I just had to get me some of these pedals. He was actually using the Tone City Sweet Cream together with the Tone City Golden Plexi, a great pair! (I do think it was Rob Chapman who started pairing them up!) However this video is just the Sweet Cream, I’ll publish another one with bort later on.

The Sweet Cream is an overdrive pedal that will serve you a fluid and creamy sound. It can do that lovely just breaking up tone but it can also generate some bite – but not like an aggressive metal tone. As mentioned above it works fine together with other pedals as well.

The pedal is small and very easy to use with only three controls – gain, volume and touch. The touch control isn’t like your normal tone control, it alter the sound in a little more complex way. As for the volume control, well it feels like it does more than just alter the volume, higher settings seems to add more bite and punch to the sound.

So the pedal has a simple and effective design and comes at a very affordable price. According to various sources it is based on the Mad Professor Honey Overdrive, so you can compare the price difference yourself… I do wish I had one of those so I could have made a side by side test but unfortunately I don’t.

I hope you like this demo, there will be a bunch more Tone City pedal reviews coming up here at Have Guitar! Feel free to subscribe to Have Guitar!, your support is needed! And as always; Thank You to all you who already subscribes – much obliged!!!

Top 5 Metal Profile Packs from ReampZone (Kemper profiles demo)

Demo by Have Guitar

Well, this is the first time I do a video like this – I actually went through all the Kemper profile packs from ReampZone that are based on what you could call “metal amplifiers” and picked out my five favourites. And that is what this video is all about!

For each profil pack I have picked out two profiles, that I quickly demonstrate with two very different guitars; my Gibson Les Paul from 1976 – I don’t know what pickups are in this guitar, could be some old Seymour Duncans. And my latest Ibanez RGDIM6FM – equipped with Fishman Fluence Modern active pickups and tuned in D, this is a guitar designed for metal.

Speaking of which – YES, I do have problems playing palm-muted with this Ibanez as there seems to be some noise in the background as I’m doing so. I’m still not sure if it’s my technique lacking or what. Sorrty for that, maybe I just need to practise more. Or dampen the strings more effective as I’ve seen some modern metal players do.

And that is that! I hope you’ll enjoy the video – if you do feel free to support Have Guitar with a subscription! And to you who already do – Thanks!

West Coast Killer by Live Ready Sound – Revisited – (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

This is Live Ready Sounds Kemper profile pack West Coast Killer revisited! This profile pack has grown exponentially since I did the first demo of it and it’s certainly worth another video as it now contains 300 profiles for your Kemper!

The West Coast Killer pack aims to recreate the sound from a Fortin Cali, according to the Fortin website “a 3-channel tube amp bringing you sweet lush cleans to crushing gain brutality”. Read more about the original amp over at Fortins website, link included below.

The profile pack, as said, contains 300 profiles created with a bunch of different settings, gain stages, cabs, microphones and bunch of different drives. It’s a crazy display of versatility! I have tried to pick out a varied bunch of profiles to display what this pack has offer and yet there is more once you have this pack available in your profile collection.

I do hope you like this demo, thanks so much for watching. If you wanna support my channel, please subscribe, comment and like! To you who do subscribe – thanks, it is really appreciated!

Dirty Surly by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Just decided to release this video today as it’s the last day of my vacation. Not that I wanna celebrate that but… well, here we go!

Well, I’m pretty sure I call this pack ‘Dirty Shelly’ or something like that in the video but the correct name is of course Dirty Surly! And watta pack it is! I was very impressed by the tone you could squeeze out from this ToneJunkie release – and it sound great with that overdrive, Sweet Cream, and reacts very nice when you push back the volume control of your guitar!

So, this pack aims at recreating the tone from a Friedman Dirty Shirley (see a link provided below), all I can say is I would looooove to do some reviews of the real thing when it comes to Friedman amplifiers. More or less every Kemper profile pack of Friedman’s are very impressive and the real deal would be a dream to play!

The original amp (40 watt) was designed for those looking for a classic rock tone, think Marshall JTM45 but with some extra gain available a’la Friedman. I’d say that is quite clear while playing with these profiles. It’s a profile pack that is up to par with what you can expect from ToneJunkie – bleeping good!

I do hope you like this demo – if you wanna support one guitar lunatic from Sweden (that’s me!) then subscribe to Have Guitar! My eternal gratitude to all You who already subscribes – Thank You! Watch out for a new video every Thursday!

Nightmare Bundle June 2019 by ToneCrate (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Might be the first time the Thursday video is late – I thought I had it scheduled but… no. And also, this is the July 2019Kemper profile pack from ToneCrate, which makes the video itself a bit late – but hey it’s been vacation!

So this pack, aptly named The Nightmare Bundle, recreates the sound from a Driftwood Purple Nightmare. It is fat, mean and lovely… The Driftwood amps are a favourite of mine, when it comes to profiles. Unfortunately I have never tried the real deal, I guess these are handbuilt and quite exclusive.

For those of you who don’t know, you can subscribe to ToneCrate and you’ll get a new pack every month – sometimes with featured artists. For more information about ToneCrate see the link to their website provided below.

Lastly, Thanks for watching Have Guitar – hope you’ll like this video! If you wanna support one crazy Swede, do feel free to subscribe to my channel. A Big Thanks, as always, to you who already do so!!!

Room Service by KISS (Guitar and Bass lesson)

Room Service by KISS (Guitar and Bass lesson)
Guitar & Bass lesson by Have Guitar

A new guitar and bass lesson – Room Service by KISS! This the first song of KISS album Dressed To Kill, a nice high tempo rocker about the life on the road. In this lesson I will show you how to play it all; rhythm guitar, lead guitar and bass!

For the first time I created tabulature for the lessons! I’m pretty sure there might be some minor mistakes as it’s the first time I do this, there’s room for improvement! Anyways, I hope it makes following the lesson a little easier.

As previously stated I will try to do one classic KISS song every month nad I think this is the third month in a row that I manage to keep that promise! What will be up next in August? Not sure yet so feel free to gimme some suggestions!

There we go – I hope you liked the video, thanks for watching Have Guitar! A subscription is always welcome… as if I need to say that? A Big Thanks to all you who do subscribe!!!

(Cover) Room Service by KISS

A cover by Have Guitar

OK, so this is the full recording of my version of KISS – Room Service from the album Dressed To Kill. A full video lesson will be posted soon, containing lessons for rhythm guitar, lead guitar and bass!

This was originally recorded almost 10 years ago but I have redone all guitars and bass. The song was a bitch to mix as the drums comes from a single stereofile… tried making it sound like a classic rock recording, not sure if I succeeded though!

So as said, all guitars and bass by me! All vocals by Valle Pecovnic. Drums by Magnus Jägbring. Thanks for the help guys, sorry for the long delay in finishing this song! 😀

And thanks to you who are watching, I hope you like my/our take of Room Service. Nothing beats the original song and that was not the intention of this recording either… just wanna make that clear!

Distortion Effects in the Kemper Profiling Amp (Part 2)

Demo by Have Guitar

Let’s continue the swim through the red zone… which is the distortion effects color in the Kemper Profiling Amp. This is the second video where I go through and demo these effects, so it just continues from the first part which included the Green Scream (Tube Screamer), Plus DS (MXR Distortion+), One DS (BOSS DS-1), Muffin (EHX Big Muff) and Mouse (ProCo RAT).

In part we’ll have a look at Fuzz DS (Dunlop Fuzz Face) and Metal DS (BOSS Metal Zone). And then some examples of stacking the distortion effects, as in using more than one of these effects at the same time.

So you can of course add a drive stomp to add gain but you can also keep the drive to zero just using the effect to color your sound and add that little extra boost that might be needed. You can place them before or after the amp which will drastically change how the drive affects your tone. And you can stack two or more drives if that’s what you need. In this video I’ll demo the Fuzz DS and Metal DS plus some stacking (using more than one drive) examples. In Part 1 I have gone through the first five drive effects; Green Scream, Plus DS, One DS, Muffin and the Mouse. There will be a part 3, where I go through the Shapers and Boost effects.

Sorry but I do not own the original pedals, would love to make a comparative video but that just isn’t possible right now. Maybe one day…

Index:
00:40 – Fuzz DS (Fuzz Face)
04:53 – Metal DS (Metal Zone)
13:38 – A little talk about stacking drive stomps
14:14 – Muffin + Metal DS
21:53 – One DS + Fuzz DS
25:24 – End words…

And that’s it! Hope you liked the video – comments and likes are welcome but of course a subscription beats them both! And a Very Big Thank You to y’all who subscribes!!
