It’s been awhile since I featured a profile pack from ReampZone so here’s the Randall Satan (120w) Kemper profile pack! The pack is packed (pun intended!) with fat metal tones but flexible enough for other styles as well. Contains both direct and studio profiles, some boosted with stomps like the Fortin 33 for an extra tight nice boost!
The Randall Satan is the signature amp of Ola Englund, comes in two variants (120 and 50 W). The 120W version comes with 2 channels and of course loaded with features… for more details, check the link to Randall Amplification provided below.
I hope I made this sweet pack from ReampZone justice and that you’ll like this demo. Feel free to support Have Guitar by a subscription! A bag of “thank yous” is handed out to you who subsscribe as always… you make it worthwhile to keep it up!

I must confess I am blessed by having a friend who’s as guitar crazy as I am… if not this (and several other videos) would not have happend! So, he went about and bought two Gibsons from the Government Series 1 and this is the first review where I take a close look at the Gibson SG Government Series 1. A big Thanks to Klas for letting me try out these guitars!
All the details about this SG is in the video – that is, all the details that I could find! There isn’t that much information available actually… and to be honest, I wasn’t even aware about the the Government models until my buddy bought these. They are kinda rare as each model was produced in only 300 units, perhaps even less for some of the them. All models in the Series 1 goes in gray/black and there is also a Series 2 that goes in tan/brown and black. Another funny details about the Government Series 1 is that the cases goes in green and black!
So, hope you’ll like this video – I certainly enjoyed recording it. Just gonna mention that this video is in 24 FPS instead of the usual 50 FPS. Sorry for that but it’s kinda annoying in the new video editing software that I’m using (Davinci Resolve) that stuff like that should be set before editing any media – once you’ve added the media it cannot be changed, so it was a miss from side. Thanks goes out to all my subscribers!!
A note about the gain rating below; on the Kemper Profiling Amp each profile has a gain rating from 0 to 10. So Clean to Low gain = 0 – 3, Crunch = 4 – 6 and Hi gain = 7 – 10.

Dark Matter by TC Electronics (Distortion pedal test / review) Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar
Here’s another Pedal Frenzy where I take a look at TC Electronics Dark Matter, a distortion pedal for electric guitar. So, I didn’t really know much about this stomp when I ordered it from Thomann. I know the brand TC Electronics, since the mid 80’s but back then my impression was that it was a high-end quite expensive brand. Or was it me being poorer back then? I don’t really know but this pedal is not expensive!
I can say already that I was pleased by the sounds this pedal can pull off, the sound certainly is not cheap. So in this video I test it out with a bunch different Kemper profiles, trying to cover a wide range of amp styles and sounds to see how the Dark Matter affects the sound.
Yeah, it’s an epic video – considering it’s lenght! Is that a bad thing? I don’t know, I just prefer content over 2 minute videos. But… for your pleasure I have put in an index to the video below so you can jump to the part you wanna see.
Index: 02:09 – Live Ready Sound Tweed profile, low gain to crunch (gain 2/10) 06:33 – ReamZone Framus Dragon profile, clean sound with some delay (gain 0/10) 11:59 – BM Profiles Friedman BE 100 profile, quite high gain (gain 6/10) 16:04 – Pete’s Profiles Wizard profile, crunch sound (gain 3/10) 20:09 – ToneJunkie Matchless profile, clean sound (gain 0/10) 25:37 – Conclusion along with some rambling
Hey! I hope liked this video and if so please do subscribe! Doesn’t cost you a dime but gives me the support I need to carry on this craziness… As always a Very Big Thanks to all you who do sub – it’s just fantastic!

Throwing in a footnote here that this is the first video that I have created/edited in Davinci Resolve, a video editing software that is available for free in a light version. It should not make any difference for you as a viewer and the reason for me changing software is that I am tired of seeing the Magix Movie Studio Platinum series not improving with the new versions. And also that I don’t wanna pay for those not so good new versions…
Thanks for watching Have Guitar and the support from you who subscribe is something which I am very grateful for! If you wanna support my little independent channel do subscribe, it’s free! 😉

So the day came – over 2000 subscriptions on Have Guitar! When I started I doubted if I would get more than a 100 sub’s if even that… so my Thanks to all of You for keeping me motivated to keep on playing and doing my videos!!!
As I did some giveaways at 1000 sub’s it seems natural logic to keep up this habit at every 1K increase. My hope is that as the channel grows (hopefully!) I will be able to do better and better giveaways. Free is always nice of course but I’d love to be able to giveaway some more highend stuff in the future!
This time I am giving away the Behringer FX600 – a Digital Stereo Multi-Effects Pedal. Just watch the video and follow the easy instructions and this pedal could be yours with some luck! There is no hidden stuff going on here, you don’t even have to subscribe to the channel to join in… but of course that would be appreciated if you do that! The only reservation I’ll make is that any taxes or fees that is required for winning something that applies to your countries laws, well that is up to you. Also I will mark the package as a gift and I can’t really take any responsibility if something happends to the pack while it’s being shipped.
So c’mon now and watch the video and join in! The deadline for this giveaway is the Friday 26th of April 2019, 23.59.
Thanks for watching Have Guitar and your support, very much appreciated!
High time for a review of the Schecter E-1 Custom Special Edition VSB electric guitar – I’ve had this guitar for about 1½ years now and it’s just time now for a thorough test/review video of it.
In this review video I will go through the specifications, how it is to play and give you loads of different sound demos – see the index below if you wanna go to a special part of this video. There is no information more than the pure spec’s on Schecters webpage but that seems to go for all of their instruments. The E-1 model comes in a few different variations that share the same ‘Explorer/Iceman’ style body. For more info about Schecter Guitars see the link below to the Wikipedia page about Schecter.

03:37 – Clean/low gain sound demos

07:00 – Talk: neck/fretboard
08:39 – Crunch/mid gain sound demos
(ToneJunkie JMProto1, Live Ready Sound Plexed for Kemper, SinMix SplawnPM, Gold Lion Studio Sovtek Tube Midget 50H & BM Profiles F-man)

Kemper Profiling Amp
This time around we’ll have a look the guitar multi-effects pedal FX600 from Behringer. This stomp pedal is an alternative for those who are on a tighter budget as it only costs around 20 euros (about 22 USD). The FX600 comes with no less than six different effects: Flanger, Chorus, Phaser, Delay, Tremolo and Pitch Shifter. Maybe I should add this is a 24-bit digital effects pedal as well. (There isn’t much more technical spec’s available than this!)
Alright, so in this demo/review I will playing a Fender Stratocaster, through the Kemper Profiling Amp – the Behringer FX600 is hooked up through the Kempers FX loop. And if you didn’t – the Kemper takes pedals as well as any tube amplifier. I have chosen to use Kemper profiles from ToneJunkie’s 67 Supery Verb pack – Kemper profiles taken from a Fender Super Reverb from 67. I have consistently used one all clean profile and one slightly overdriven profile for all of the effects in the FX600.
Due to user failure all the closeups of the FX600 while playing with the clean profile was shot in timelapse mode, so there will not be any close-ups of that – sorry!
