Vintage Overdrive by Harley Benton (Thomann) Pedal Test

Vintage Overdrive by Harley Benton (Thomann) Pedal Test
Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

Wow, it’s been way too long since I did a Pedal Frenzy (review) here! So this feature is now back AND in a revamped presentation. I do think this format is better, as it’ll show you in real time exactly what I’m doing with the pedals settings… and yeah, it is a long video and you might or might not like that. I however got tired of some pedal videos where you hardly get to hear the pedal so I set this up with two very different guitars and three different “amps” (Kemper profiles!); Fender Bassman, Revv 120 & the mighty PRS Archon. And I’ve also included an index so you can jump around as you please. In the video that is but sure if you wanna jump around whilst watching this video, go ahead!

I’ve had my eyes on the Harley Benton Vintage Overdrive for quite some time now, actually I heard a lot of good talk about it, from other guitarists. Gotta say after I had a go with it, I was pleasantly pleased with its performance. It’s cheap, it’s green and it’s a Tube Screamer clone – also well built for that sake! In my ears this low budget stomp box sounded much better than one might expect and well… I guess you just have to watch the video to hear it for yourself.

Have Guitar premiere: Pedal Frenzy

So, Youtube has given me access to a new feature called “premiere” and as it has been awhile since I did a Pedal Frenzy / review and as I have changed the format a bit I thought I’d test this feature…

The premiere will take place on Have Guitar’s Youtube channel the 15:th of November, 06:00 PM (1800 in 24h-mode) US Central Time. So this is an “early warning” and I have no idea how this will work out… but I gotta try it right?

The Pedal Frenzy video will be live at the above given time/date on this URL. I suppose that won’t work until a couple of minutes before the video starts.

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.

DynaVerb Guitar Edition from EBS (Effect Pedal Demo) – Pedal Frenzy!

Finally got around to demo the EBS Dynaverb Red Label Guitar Edition. This is an effect pedal which offers 8 different reverberation types, which of course means it has a lot of variation inherent.

In this video I’ve chosen to go through all of the eight reverb types with three different settings on each, trying to give you a wide overview of how the pedal sounds. And just to prove my servicemindedness here’s an index of the video if you wanna skip to some specific part of it:

Index:
00:47 – Description of the pedal
02:36 – About the profile used for this demo
03:13 – Hall type demos start

Big Muff (Green Russian) from Electro Harmonix – Pedal Frenzy!

Time for another episode of Have Guitars Pedal Frenzy – in this video we’ll take a look at Electro Harmonix Green Russian Big Muff! This video is kinda “first impression” for me as I never owned a fuzz pedal before. I’ve had more distortion pedals and over-drives than I care to count but never a fuzz, but I’ve had good GAS for a Big Muff for quite a while… so when I saw the new release of the Green Russian I was so taken by the cool design that decided now is the time. Fuzz time.

EHX Green Russian Big Muff has a very distinct sound that opens a fat flood of fuzzy tones. The new variant is smaller than the original (good for those who uses a pedalboard) and said to have less gain but more bass and also less “fizz”. To that you can add that the pedal has “true bypass”. What’s not to love about that, huh?

Gibson SG Standard 2016 High Performance (490R/498T)

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.

Pedal Frenzy! Neunaber Immerse Reverberator

Have Guitar! is happy to present to you the stomp of the month, the pedal frenzy of Neunaber Immerse Reverberator! This pedal is designed to give you the best of the reverbs from the Neunaber Expanse and there’s some very nice reverbs coming out from this lil’ box. You will get no less than eight effects here: Wet, Hall, Plate, Spring, two “Shimmers”, wet+echo and wet+detune – where the last one is like a really sweet chrous effect.

(And Yes! I did add stills of the pedal eventhough I said wouldn’t… )

The Neunaber Immerse will give you a host great sounding reverb effects and as seen above you will get a delay and a chorus effect to add to that. The pedal has also tow additional switches; Kill Dry (where you only will hear the wet signal, the reverb so to speak) and Trails (where activated the reverb continues when you turn off the pedal). All in all – good sounding reverbs, a couple of extra effects and many many option to tweak the sound that you are after. Now… hit play on that video!

Pedal Frenzy: BOSS PS-3 Digital Pitch Shifter / Delay

Have Guitar proudly presents a new feature on this channel – Pedal Frenzy! Stomp of the Month!

Yep, that right. I’m gonna try to present a demo video with a stomp box at least once a month from now on. I have featured effects pedals before so this is a continued effort but more structured if you like…

First out is the Boss PS-3 Digital Delay / Pitch Shifter. Not a new pedal, rather even a vintage one as I’ve had it since at least the early 90’s. So take a look, a listen to this demo to see how it sounds and how it stands up to modern effects. The Boss PS-3 is still for sale in used condition every here and there so I am pretty sure people are still using it!

Index:
05:04 – Mode 1 Delay 32-125 ms
07:49 – Mode 2 Delay 125-500 ms
12:43 – Mode 3 Delay 500-2000 ms
14:12 – Mode 4 Single Pitch Shifter: Detune
16:09 – Mode 5 & 6 Single Pitch Shifter: +/- 2 octaves (Fast & Slow)
18:59 – Mode 7 Single Pitch Shifter: +/- 2 octaves (Inverse)
