Unchained by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

Time for a closeup demo of the Unchained Kemper profile pack from Live Ready Sound! These profiles recreates the sound from a Metropoulos DVL-1 amp head and in my ears, this is the way it should sound!!

The Metropoulos DVL-1 is in fact the signature model of William DuVall (Alice in Chains) and the vision was to “build the ultimate plexi-style 100-watt amplifier with maximum flexibility and functionality and zero compromise in components, signal purity, and tone.”. The amplifier features four modes :

’65 Mode – “maximum R&B” tones of 1965-era Pete Townshend up to the full-throated JTM-45 growl of AC/DC’s Angus Young
’66 Mode – heavier blues-rock tones of Cream and The Jimi Hendrix Experience
’68 Mode – inspired by the 1968 Marshall plexi amp used by Edward Van Halen
Mod Mode – Think Metallica or Alice in Chains. Mod Mode offers maximum heaviness but with a clarity, musicality, and harmonic richness

The descriptions above directly qouted from Metropoulus webpage for this amp. Link provided below if you wanna check out more information about this fantastic amp!

Hope you liked this demo, buy the pack if you wanna support Live Ready Sound – subscribe to my channel if you wanna support me! Thanks to all the subscribers, you’re the best!

Vibe Queen by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Here’s a demo of the Vibe Queen Kemper profile pack from ToneJunkie! This profile pack recreates the sound from a Fender Vibro King amplifier and it contains both studio and direct profiles for your Kemper Profiling Amp.

As always with profiles from ToneJunkie you can expect some well profiled sounds from an amp that is quite capable. You won’t get any chuggy metal here but there’s dirty driven tones included of course! If you wanna get into the more heavy side of life you’ll need to drive it up with an overdrive or similar. I should mention that some of the profiles are boosted with a Klone overdrive pedal.

I do hope you will like this demo, I tried making an overview of what this pack has to offer. If you wanna support my channel a subscription is of course more than welcome… (see the link below!). A Big Thanks to all you who subscribe already!!

Krank Rev 1 Ultimate Kemper Pack by Gold Lion Studios (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Time to try out a brand new Kemper profile pack from Gold Lion Studios – the Krank Rev Ultimate Kemper Pack! This is a gain best of an amp and (I believe) mostly used by metal bands. But it can do more than so, if you ask me…

This pack from Gold Lion Studios comes with studio, merged and direct profiles, 55 profiles all in all and it ranges from clean to drippin’ gain! I really liked the variation that this profile pack offers, the profiles are tweaked with a good variation to’em and there’s also effects included from the start. I had a blast when doing this demo and I hope that comes through in the video…

S-Gear 2 by Scuffham – All the presets (Part 4: The Jackal)

This is a five part video series where I demonstrate all the presets that comes with Scuffham S-Gear 2, so if you want a thorough overview of this VST plugin this might be it. As there are five different amps with in S-Gear 2 I have splitt this into five different videos, that will be release over a five week period (mainly because I don’t wanna clutter up my channels video feed!).

As a general overview of S-Gear 2: it’s a software that can be run as standalone or as a plugin in your DAW (digital audio workstation). S-Gear comes with five different amps, speaker cabinetts, tuner and effects (you can also use 3rd part cabs/IR’s). Feel free to have a look at my review video for more information about S-Gear 2 (link provided below). If you want to try it out, there’s a 10 day full featured trial available.

In this video the focus is on the amp named The Jackal – which should be based on a Soldano SLO 100. It’s capable of high gain sounds but also sounds great clean. It’s practically a modern high gain design that can cover any style from clean country twang to high gain rock and metal.

Not sure if this is of interest but a note on the guitars used for these videos. The presets are not ordered by the amps so I just picked a guitar and recorded 10 presets, then I switched to another guitar and played another 10 presets and so on. So what guitar is used for which preset is kinda random! The way I recorded them is just hooking them up directly to my soundcard (Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 2nd Gen) and then recorded some noodling in Reaper. Nothing added before or after, it is just as they come.

Fulltone OCD vs Tone City Dry Martini (Comparision / Blind test!)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

The master and the contender… maybe. So I have reviewed the Tone City Dry Martini, without comparing it to the pedal that it’s based on; the Fulltone OCD. I saved that for this video and after some thinking I decided to make it a blind test. Who doesn’t love a blind test?!! It’s scientific, fun and… well, a somewhat fair way to do an A/B-test.

I don’t think the Fulltone OCD needs a detailed introduction. It’s a classic overdrive pedal, available in many different versions and made in the USA. This pedal is said to have been sold in over 250000 units since it came around in late 2004. A sensitive overdrive, something that can create those overtones from a driven tube amplifier.

The Tone City Dry Martini is a smaller sized ‘clone’, made in China and cheaper than the OCD. It do have the same controls (Volume, Tone, Gain and a hi/low gain switch) but the spec’s are not excatly the same… and I do believe you can hear that – in my ears they do not sound the same. And that’s why I figured a blind test would be a good way to go about!

This way you can check out which sound you prefer, it might… or might not… surprize you. Let me know in the comments what you thought sounded the best! And did you get it right, pedal by pedal?

S-Gear 2 by Scuffham – All the presets (Part 3: The Wayfarer)

This is a five part video series where I demonstrate all the presets that comes with Scuffham S-Gear 2, so if you want a thorough overview of this VST plugin this might be it. As there are five different amps with in S-Gear 2 I have splitt this into five different videos, that will be release over a five week period (mainly because I don’t wanna clutter up my channels video feed!).

Feel free to have a look at my review video for more information about S-Gear 2 (link provided below). If you want to try it out, there’s a 10 day full featured trial available.

In this video the focus is on the amp named The Wayfarer. None of the amps in S-Gear 2 are based on nay specific amp but The Wayfarer should be Mesa Boogie like, maybe like a MKIV and/or a high gain Fender amp. “Classic american” is what the manual has to say about it. It features 3 channels, many tone shaping switches, a graphic EQ that is placed between the preamp and the power amp. The three channels are as follows…

Lead I – Classic hot-rodded Fender, with rich overdrive sounds.
Lead II – can do very high gain, higher intensity than Lead I with a slightly more aggressive voicing.
Lead Drive: adjust the gain with additional gain stages, careful balancing is key for tight overdrive sounds.

Not sure if this is of interest but a note on the guitars used for these videos. The presets are not ordered by the amps so I just picked a guitar and recorded 10 presets, then I switched to another guitar and played another 10 presets and so on.

Dry Martini by Tone City (Review / Demo / Showcase)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

The American writer E.B. White said about the Dry martini; “the elixir of quietude”, which of course is something you couldn’t (or maybe shouldn’t) say about an overdrive pedal like the Tone City Dry Martini… (yes, he was talking about the drink).

So this is a demo/review of the Tone City micro pedal Dry Martini. This is a clone of the Fulltone OCD pedal and features about the same controls as the OCD; Volume, Tone, Gain and a high/low gain switch. The gain is best described as low to medium with a punchy character (think a tube amplifier at its ‘sweet spot’). It should be noted that the latest version of the Fulltone OCD has some features that the Dry Martini hasn’t; like the ‘Enhanced bypass’ for example.

This video is all about the Tone City Dry Martini on its own, no comparison with the Fulltone OCD. If not already out, I will soon release a “blind test” video where you can test if you can spot which is the original pedal (or which of them you would prefer). I’ve used one clean sound and one slightly overdriven sound for this review, should be noted that due to a malfunction the sound in the overdriven sound part of the video is captured by room microphones.

Hope you like the video – support Have Guitar! with a subscription! I’m very grateful to all you who already do, Thanks!

Great Expectations by KISS (Lesson for guitar & bass)

Lessons by Have Guitar!

Time for a lesson on how to play Great Expectations by KISS. Both guitar and bass! Not overly comlicated but what a great song, if you ask me… this track comes from Destroyer and was released in 1976. As it happends it was the first rock album that I got my hands on and after that there was no turning back, whatever the current trends says (grin).

Some people might say that Destroyer was ‘over-produced’ but I think the sound of that album is fantastic, it kinda captures the image of KISS – especially in the new costumes they got for that album. From what I know the song has only been performed live once and that was during the recording of ‘Symphony Alive IV’, understandable as it kinda feels a bit empty when scaled down to just guitars, bass and drums.

Anyways, I hope you liked the lesson and maybe even had some use of it… if you wanna support Have Guitar – subscribe, see the link below. Big appreciation goes out to all of You who do subscribe, Thanks!!!

Kemper Editor – First impressions

The editor for the Kemper has been out for around 2 months now and is video is exactly what the title says, my first look/impressions of the new editor for the Kemper profiling amp. I figured I could just as well let the camera roll as I took my first look at this new feature, so this is that video!

I’ve also included a small howto for upgrading your Kemper via Rig Manager, which is the most convinient way to do an upgrade, if you ask me. And I’d like to stress that this is a beta version, both the OS for the Kemper and the Rig Manager version – I’ve had no problems with this so far, but trying out beta’s is on your own responsibility.
