Soul Food by Electro Harmonix (Guitar overdrive pedal test / review)

Soul Food by Electro Harmonix (Guitar overdrive pedal test / review)
Pedal Frenzy from Have Guitar!

It has taken me some time to do a proper demo of Electro Harmonix “transparent” overdrive pedal Soul Food, but I can tell you already – it’s one of my drive pedals that I use most for kicking in a sweet boost to the tones…

So what does “transparent overdrive” mean anyways? I believe that started with the legendary Klon Centaur pedal in the 90’s – what is basically does is taking what you already got and boost that. Yeah, that’s it – it doesn’t totally take over the sound, instead it can boost a good sound to something a little bit more pushed but it keeps the basic character.

As the original Klon Centaur goes for ridiculous prices, a pedal like the Soul Food from EHX is a welcome alternative with a price tag much nicer for your economy. There are other alternatives as well, in different price ranges but this video is about the Soul Food so lets keep focused on that now.

Kemper through Boss Katana – Test!

Boss Katana as Powered Cab for Kemper Profiling Amp
Test from Have Guitar!

(Figured I should release this as a Saturday “bonus” video as I wanted to do this a long time ago… so here we are.)

So, I finally came around to try out the Boss Katana as a powered FRFR cab for the Kemper. Wait a minute… did I say “FRFR”?! Well, that is a slight exaggeration of course! But the thought is that the acoustic setting of the Boss Katana is kinda close to FRFR, which by the way means “Full Range Flat Responce” – in other words a speaker that handles frequencies from 0 – 20000 hz.

Unfortunately I don’t have one of those high end, expensive FRFR speaker to compare with so I used what I had at hands – you will get sound examples lined directly from the Kemper via SPDIF, recorded live in the room through my studio monitors (Event ASP8) and through the Boss Katana, of course.

ST 60th Vintage Master series by Green Guitars (Guitar review)
Guitar review/test from Have Guitar!

Have Guitar is happy to present a review of Green Guitars ST 60th Vintage Master Series, a classic stratocaster made like a 1965 strat. Green Guitars is located in Sweden and they offer a large variety of guitar models, all priced very competitive. This model looks great, plays very nice and sounds fantastic – I’m very happy to have been given the chance to present this review to you. I’ve had the Strat for about three weeks and I have given it as much time as I possibly could – partly to see what it can deliver but also due to the fact that I really liked playing it!

In this video I’ve tried to give as much info about the Green Guitars Strat as I could, and I’ve picked out twelve Kemper profiles for the sound samples. I have chosen a bunch of different amplifier and arranged them in the video so it start with low gain increasing to high gain. If you just wanna hear the sound examples I have included an index that you can follow, see below.

I would like to give Green Guitars a round of applause coupled with a Big Thanks for letting me do this review – it’s the first time I’ve been sponsored with a review item in a physical form. I really do appriciate that!

DeLuxe 65 – Free Kemper Profiles (demo)

DeLuxe 65 – Free Kemper Profiles (demo) from Have Guitar!

Here’s a free profile recommendation from Have Guitar and yes, I have finally decided to change that old name for this feature; from “Rig Exchange Recommendations” to “Free Kemper Profiles”. And how fitting as this profile doesn’t come from the Rig Exchange!

This is just one profile, taken from a Fender DeLuxe ’65 RI amplifier. It’s quite versatile, run it slightly overdriven as it comes or activate a drive from the Kempers effects to make it roar with a gritty and lovely dirty tone… it’s up to you! So, if this profile isn’t on the Rig Exchange – where can you find it? Well, Rikard, who made this profile, gave me permission to share it. The link is found below, at haveguitar.com! Thanks to Rikard for that!

I do hope that you liked this video and if you do – pretty please subscribe to my channel, to support me. More Sub’s open up the possibilities for more varied videos on Have Guitar! To each and every one already subscribing – Thank You, the support is very much appreciated!
