Review: Boss Katana 100 watts 1×12″

So here’s another review from Have Guitar – the Boss Katana amplifier. Is tubes? No. Is it a digital modelling amp? Not really. The Boss Katana goes its own way and its goin’ is good…

This review is about the Boss Katana 100 watts with a 1×12″ speaker, five different amp setting ranging from acoustic to high gain, power control and much more. Watch my review for a runthrough of the Katanas feature, sound examples and Have Guitars opinion about this amp!

Vlog #1-17: English… and Swedish

Yep, been a long time since I did a Vlog so now its time. These videos do not go out to the subscribers as a notification, so if you for some reason do like’em you have to check out my channel every now and then. It’s not that important – just something I do when I get the urge. By the way watch out for next thursday, second of november, for a cool double release of videos. Or… considering the topic of this video, it’s actually four videos.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar!

Så, det var ett tag sedan jag släppte en Vlog så nu är det tydligen dags. Vlogsen går inte ut som notifikationer till prenumeranter så om du gillar dem måste du titta in hos min kanal då och då. Så, de är kanske inte så viktiga men då och då när jag får lust gör jag en vlog. Förresten, glöm inte att kolla in Have Guitar nästa torsdag, andra november, för två nya videos. Fast… med tanke på ämnet för den här vloggen så blir det ju de facto fyra videos.

Tack för att du kollar på Have Guitar!

TTone Klon Centaur Horsie – Pedal Frenzy, Chinese pedals 1

Have Guitar presents Pedal Frenzy Special – Made in China! That’s right, just as a fun (?!) experiment I ordered two overdrive pedals from China and the first one is the Klon Centaur Horsie Professional Overdrive Guitar Pedal Gold. Pfew! That’s a long name!

So, this is a clone of the original Clon Kentaur stomp box that was invented by Bill Finnegan in the 90’s and sold up until 2000. This pedal quickly became well known for its “transparent overdrive” and today the original pedal is quite expensive… as I don’t have access to the original pedal I can’t really say if the Ttone is as good, but well, I kinda doubt it.

But still, you should have a listen to the sound examples in this video – you can get some cool tones out of it. And as it happends, I will get a praised and more recognized clone of the Klon Centaur and then I will of course bring out this Ttone again.

Unboxing / First impression: Electro Harmonix Russian Green Big Muff

Have Guitar is happy to present an unboxing and first impression video of the Electro Harmonix Green Russian Big Muff. This pedal should not be unfamiliar with any guitarist and this reissue of the russian version certainly will bring fatness and sustain to your sound palette.

So this is not an in-depth review or test, just as stated; the unboxing and my first impression of the Green Russian Big Muff and it certainly gave an impression on me! It looks great and it plays great and it can alter the sound of your amplifier more than I had expected. Very cool indeed!

And yes, that is a t-shirt from the KISS reunion tour 96/97. I have had that for 20 years and it’s still in great shape – you gotta love quality like that!

Equipment used in this video:
Gibson SG Standard 2016 High Performance (490R/498T)
Electro Harmonix Green Russian Big Muff
Boss Katana 100w 1×10

Kemper Rig Showcase: Peter’s Profiles – THD UniValve 6L& Power Tube

Here’s a new Kemper Rig Showcase from Have Guitar! In this one I take a look at a Kemper profile pack from Pete’s Profiles, it’s the THD UniValve 6L6 Power Tube. The profiles are created with seven different settings captured by six different microphone which gives us 42 profiles (and yes, I know I say 7×7 in the video… math is obviously not my strong side!).

This amp is class A (and if you wanna know more about that, take a look at the link below!), it’s one channel with an attenuator built in and it runs between 3 – 15 watts. If you want to know more about the amp from which the profiles came, I have added a link to the manufacturer below.

Also, as I’ll tell you in the video, I planning on doing shorter Kemper Rig Showcases from now on. I mean, some of my KRS videos has been way over 20 minutes long! By doing them shorter, I still hope be able make them more focused and actually more enjoyable to watch and the same goes for the Pedal Frenzy videos. The ideal time would be between 5 – 10 minutes. For reviews and some other videos that naturally can be longer for in-depth purposes I have planned doing two versions – like I did with my review of the Gibson SG. One long and one short so you as a viewer can choose the version that suits you.

Equipment used in this video:
Fender American Standard Stratocaster (Shawbucker/Custom 50’s)
Gibson SG Standard 2016 High Performance (490R/498T)
MXR Zakk Wylde Berzerker over drive

Kemper Rig Showcase – ReampZone’s Peavey Classic 30 Kemper profiles

Have Guitar presents a new Kemper Rig Showcase – ReampZone’s Peavey Classic 30 profile pack!

“I’m a rocker, I’m a roller – I’m a right out of controller!”

So why do these lines from AC/DC’s Rocker spring to mind? Because to me that’s just what the Peavey Classic 30 seems to be about. A slightly vintage character but definitely more rock than metal in my ears. And it do sound good…

These profiles are taken from a Peavey Classic 30 head, not the combo version which is more common. It’s 30 watts, two channels ranging from clean to dirty crunch and equipped with three 12AX7 and four EL84 tubes. Also used to boost the amp head is the Klon Centaur, Duncan 805 and some other stomp boxes – for more info see the link to ReampZone below.

GuitarList:
ESP Phoenix II (Seymour Duncan JB/’59)
Harley Benton TE70 Black Paisley (Fender Texas Specials)
Fender American Standard Stratocaster (Shawbucker/Custom 50’s)
Gibson SG Standard 2016 High Performance (490R/498T)
Gibson Les Paul ’76

250K views…!

Yeah, I know… some big youtubers get more than that for one video. For me this a big number, so lets celebrate the occasion with a really good song by Rare Earth – I just wanna celebrate. Cheesy perhaps but it’s still a stompin’ good song and I’m happy for the 250K views! Thanks to all of you who have been watching my vid’s – there’s more to come!
