Rig Showcase: ReampZones Orange TH30 (Modded)

Have Guitar is proud to present ReampZones Orange TH30 (Modded) profile pack for the Kemper Profiling Amp! This is one rockin’ good profile pack for yer Kemper – it would definitely get a place on my Top-10 rig pack for the KPA! So, as the name suggests this is not a standard Orange TH30, it has been modified to sound even better than the original amp does and that also makes this rig pack unique.

This is a pack that is flexible when it comes to the sounds it can produce, I think it could be used for any genre really. The Orange has a great tone and sustain and even the more high gain profiles have a fantastic string separation. OK, so enough, you got it – I really do dig this rig pack from ReampZone… the pack includes direct profile (23), merged profiles (35) and studio profiles (30).

Guitars used in this Rig Showcase:
Gibson SG Standard 2016 High Performance, Fender Stratocaster American Standard 2014 (Shawbucker) and Harley Benton TE70 Black Paisley (Fender Texas Specials).

Hope you’ll like the video – if you do, please subscribe to support Have Guitar! Thanks for watching and thanks to all of you who allready subscribe – you’re the best!

Kemper Effects: Chorus Stomps

Have Guitar takes a peek at the Chorus stomps effects in the Kemper Profiling Amp. In this effects section you’ll find no less than seven chorus effects; Vintage chorus, Hyper chorus, Air chorus, Micro Pitch, Vibrato, Rotary Speaker and Tremolo – if you can’t find what you’re looking for here, it’s probably not a chorus effect you are after! All of these can be placed infront or after the amplifier (virtually speaking of course) and it makes a big difference! I’ll apply all of these seven chorus effects both infront of and ‘behind’ the amp in this video and show you some settings … hopefully in an interesting way so you will learn something about these effecs in the Kemper. Heck, might even be so that you could get something out of the video even if you still run with a real tube amp and stomp boxes on the floor. All sound examples are recorded / lined into Cubase to give you a clear sound of what it sounds like in a recording situation. Guitar used in this video: Fender American Standard Stratocaster 2014 with a Shawbucker in the bridge position and Custom 50’s singlecoils. Some say the effects in the Kemper Profling Amp are not that good but I really don’t know if I agree on that statement. Too me most of them sounds good enough or even better than that… but hey, that’s me. I’m known to prefer the digital reverb in the KPA over a real spring reverb… So, with that said… or rather, written… hope you like the video! If you do please consider subscribing to Have Guitar, I’m doing my best to publish new videos every week and hopefully I get better as I do so. Thanks for watching my videos and a Very Big Thanks to all of you who allready subscribes!

Rig Showcase: SinMix SplanPM Pack

Have Guitar is very pleased to present the first Kemper Rig Showcase based on a pack from SinMix: SplanPM Pack! A sweet bunch of Kemper profiles based on a Splawn Pro Mod amplifier – 51 profiles so heavy it should be a crime not get this rig pack. I’m pretty sure SinMix aims this pack for metal players, but hey there’s more to it than metal if I can have my say. Just listen (and feel free to watch it at the same time) to the examples in this video… some really nice sounds right there!

This pack will be tested with the following guitars: Fender American Standard Stratocaster (HSS, with a Shawbucker), Harley Benton TE70 Black Paisley (with Fender Texas Specials) and the ESP Phoenix II. You’ll get both lined and live in the room examples and some recordings over backing tracks to present how these Sinmix profiles sounds in the mix.

Test/review: Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S.

Have Guitar proudly presents a review video of the Gibson Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S. – a guitar you won’t find every day as it’s a limited edition model. Now matter if you like Ace Frehley or not this is one fine Les Paul Custom, there is no doubt about that. The Budokan Les Paul Custom V.O.S. was manufactured in a stricly limited edition of 50 hand-aged (reliced) and signed by Ace Frehley, 100 hand-aged/reliced and 150 guitars treated in Gibson Customs VOS process (Vintage Original Specification).

According to Gibson “the Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom is a painstaking recreation of Frehley’s modified Les Paul Custom, based on intimate examination of the instrument’s current condition.” Well, I can tell you with that Dimarzio Super Distortion pickup you will get that sound that you can hear in the live videos from the mid seventies when KISS performs live.

In this video Have Guitar will showcase the Gibson Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S. in 4K video and of course there will be sound examples both live in the room as well as lined recordings. Something that I personally really like about this Les Paul is that it’s a real signature model, in that aspect that it’s an authentic replica of a vintage Gibson Les Paul Custom. It’s not like “the 300” signature model that was released in 1997, that had Ace Frehley’s makeup on the headstock – sure they are also a limited run and probably highly collectable but it’s not a guitar that is historically correct in that aspect. The Budokan Les Paul is much more the real deal according to me and whilst this is not my guitar I can tell ya – I would love to own one…

And that’s it! I hope you like the showcase of this Gibson Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S. – a very big thanks to Klas, who was so generous as to lend me this rare Les Paul – that is very much appriciated!!! I never thought I would even get close to one of these but thanks to him I did… so if you liked the video, there’s more where that came from!

Rig Showcase: ReampZones Marshall JCM 800 Lead Series 1987

Have Guitar proudly presents a Rig Showcase for ReampZones Marshall JCM 800 Lead Series 1987 Kemper profile pack. It’s practically a rock and roll machine and in this pack you’ll get 20 studio profiles and 5 direct profiles. This screams classic Marshall amplification but a bunch of boosts such as the Suhr Riot and Klon Centaur has been used in the profiling process (for a full list see the below link to ReampZones website) which provides expanded tonal abilities. The profiles are tested with a Fender American Standard Stratocaster (Shawbucker) and an ESP Phoenix II.

The Marshall JCM 800 series was introduced in 1981 (even though the Marshall 2203 and 2204 had been in production since 1975) an d lots of metal and rock band used this amplifier in the 80’s. Did you know that the name “JCM 800” comes from Jim Marshalls initials together with the numbers from the number plate on his car?

In this video Have Guitar! will give away previously unpublished profile from ReampZones Fuchs Black Jack 21 MKII Kemper profile pack. Just watch the video and find the give-away-link to get this Kemper profile for free! Many thanks to ReampZone for this generous offer!

Kemper Distortion Stomps

Have Guitar takes a look at the built-in distortion effects / stompboxes in the Kemper Profiling Amp. There are seven of them; distortion, overdrives and fuzz… all trying to emulate the real deal like TS-808, MXR Distortion+, Electro Harmonix Big Muff and the ProCo Rat – to mention some of them. All of these seven distortion effects will be applied to the same profile (Orange TH30 (Modded) from ReampZone) in this video to make it easier to hear how they affect the sound and also to make it easier to hear the difference between these Kemper effects. And what would a rundown like this be worth if we didn’t turn the knobs? I’ve tested them all in four different settings (where possible as some of them doesn’t have a tone control) for maximum diversity.

Some say the distorion effects in the Kemper Profling Amp are sub-par but I really don’t know if I agree on that statement. Now, many profiles comes with gain enough allright and some profiles has been created withreal stompboxes in the chain as boosts but that doesn’t mean you cant activate these built-in effects to tweak and/or color the profile according to your taste… you kan keep the gain up but the volume up to strenghten the tone a bit, color the sound with some more / less treble or low / high pass filters through the tone control. The options are endless and the hunt for the perfect sound never stops!

Rig Showcase: M Britt’s Driftwood MiniNightmare

Have Guitar presents: a Rig Showcase of a great Kemper rig pack from Michael Britt – the Driftwood Mini Nightmare – whatta pack! This amp is a killer! Or maybe that should be rephrased to this amp has a killer sound, these Kemper profiles from Mbritt totally blew me away the first time I tried them – the tone, the sustain, the fatness and that angry but still lovely sounding gain… it’s impossible not to smile while playing these profiles! I hope you’ll enjoy it just as much as I have!!

The original Driftwood MiniNightmare amplifier comes as 45W 6L6 or 22W 6V6 (now I suppose that is like an option within the same amp, not two different versions of the MiniNightmare!). It has two channels with controls for gain, bass, mid, treble and volume. I’ll just quote from Driftwoods own information on their website:

“With the Gain switch on HIGH you will be blown away. More Gain, a little more compression and with a more modern tuning, this channel will burn the house down with fat rhythms, screaming leads and razor-sharp staccatos! Always on point, even with a lot of Gain and Bass. Chords stay crystal clear—and with the Volume knob clean sounds are possible even with this setting. Thanks to the efficient EQ you will achieve a high quality sound from ‘80s hair metal to modern core and djent.”
