West Avalon by Mattfig (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Time for Have Guitar Rig Showcase #2:20 and here’s a rare beast profiled; West Laboratories Amplifiers Avalon by Mattfig! This pack packs some serious vintage raw power and brings 131 profiles (both studio and direct).

So what about the amp behind this sound? Well, it’s West Amps and it’s kinda hard finding much information about them. These amps were built by David West and made their clame to fame by being used by Grand Funk Railroad (on their first four albums).

West stopped making these amps full-time at the end of the 70’s and by the end of the 80’s he closed business to go on other ventures. Or did he? I have found other sources that states he left the business already in 1972 and that reissues of the classic West amps were launched around 2013. I don’t know which of the above is true, the information is scarce…

Anyways, this pack recreates the sound from a West Avalon amp, 50 watts and I would say it covers all lot of ground… nice warm cleans up to quite heavy (pedal boosted) tones.

There we go! Hope you enjoyed this video, if you wanna support my channel please subscribe! Thanks to all of you who already do!

Riot Drums by Ugritone (Review – Demo – Showcase)

Video by Have Guitar!

Riot Drums from Ugritone is a 64-bit VST/VST3/AU/AXX plugin, inspired by the classic 90’s hard core albums. This drum plugin has many great features like adjustable mics (close, room close/far, overheads…), great routing possibilities and freely adjustable midinotes for the drums.

In this video we’ll go through this drum plugin; looking at the features but of course giving some sound examples as well, standalone as well as “in the mix”. (By the way, the sound of the guitars in the song featured in the video comes from Kemper profiles from ReampZone, bass was recorded with a profile from Live Ready Sounds Traced Bass for Kemper.)

Top 5 2019 Kemper profile packs! (Kemper profiles demo)

Top 5 by Have Guitar!

Another year passed and here is my top 5 list of the packs that I have demoed during 2019! It was not an easy task to pick out only 5 of the 40 something packs that I have had the pleasure of testing. It’s a dirty job but someones gotta do it! I have taken all sorts of things into consideration when chosing the five; number of profiles, tweaking of the original amp, sound, feel, effects, price and so on. In the end it’s my own experience from the packs that counts, how fun was it to play? How inspirational were the tones?

So thanks again for the year that has passed, hope you’ll keep following Have Guitar for 2020 as well! For 2020 I’m planning on doing even more varied videos and I would to do some more practicing and recording of songs. If I will have the time for that, time will tell. I’ve also been thinking on doing some album reviews – starting on the Have Guitar Facebook page but maybe and just maybe that could be something to do in video format as well? We’ll see…

Wishing you all a fantastic 2020 and again thanks for the subs, the views and your comments!

KSR Juno by ReampZone (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

I hope you had a great new years eve – this video is the first one of 2020 and well, I just thought it would be nice to publish one of the first day of the new year! Another thing that is nice – it’s a new pack from ReampZone, yay! Only direct profiles so far but no doubt this will be updated with studio profiles during the coming months.

The KSR webpage doesn’t really more than “Dual channel, 100W or 50W, configurable gain & response guitar amplifier.” about this amp. But considering it’s price, you probably know what you want if you buy one. Anyways, they have some demo videos of the real deal at their webpage so check out the link below if you wanna have a look and listen to it!

Also coming tomorrow – my top five picks of Kemper profile packs that I have demoed during 2019. And that’s it for this description! I hope you like the demo and if you do feel free to support Have Guitar with your subscription! And new fresh 2020-Thanks to all You who do sub!!
