DP Durple by Tone City (pedal review – demo – showcase)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

Here’s a new guitar overdrive pedal from Tone City – DP Durple! So it is not a signature pedal but it’s collaboratively designed by Tone City and “Danish Pete” from Andertons. The DP Durple is based on Tone City Mandragora OD but modified to suit Danish Pete’s tonal taste.

So the Tone City Mandragora is based on the Kalamazoo Love Drive and the DP Durple is as said based on the Mandragora, with some modifications. The Mandragora’s ‘Pre’ (presence) has been replaced by a ‘Mid’ control that let’s you cut or boost the amount of mid-range. The ‘Tone’ control has been adjusted to be less bright, offering a more moderate amount of treble so it’s not too shrill at the higher settings.

Otherwise it’s a small but sturdy analogue pedal; metal casing and true bypass. The dimensions are 4.2 x 5.2 x 9.3 cm and it needs a 9VDC power supply, no battery compartment. The controls are gain, volume, mid and tone.

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.)

Gibson Dirty Fingers pickups X 3 (different guitar models – same pickups)

Sound Demo/Test by Have Guitar

OK, so I mainly did this video because I could… it’s not every day that I have three different guitars with the same pickup configuration in the studio! So there’s my Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019 and then Klas Gibson SG and Explorer Government Series I – all equipped with Gibson Dirty Fingers humbuckers. Is there a difference? Watch this video to make your own decision!

Some info about the Government Series I:
“Using the woods returned from the 2 highly questionable raids the US Government did on their factory in Nashville, Gibson has decided to release the new Government series of guitars. Limited in number, these guitars feature a “Government Grey” finish, classic Dirty Fingers model pickups and come in new olive green hardshell cases. 300 Les Pauls, 175 SGs, 100 Explorers and 100 Flying Vs are all that are being built.”

I have reviewed both the Gibson Explorer and SG Government Series I in separate video’s – check out the link below if you’re interested in that. And whilst pushing my own videos I have of course reviewed my own Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019 as well, link also included.

Gibson Government Series I Explorer – Test / Review

Guitar review by Have Guitar

So… back with Gibson Government Series I and this time it’s of course the Explorer! Again, a fat Thank You to Klas – without him these nice guitars would never had passed through my hands! The Government Series is a limited run that seems to have gone unnoticed even by some guitar connoisseurs that I know, so story in short; the US government siezed some materials from Gibson but the company later got back that and well, they built the Government Series I & II with that wood. Cool story!

So, the specifications of the Explorer is in the video, I think I actually found more on the Explorer than I did on the SG. I believe that while Gibson built 300 SG’s they only built 100 of the Explorers… and that is that. Now watch the video instead, index can be found below. Thanks for watching Have Guitar and I hope you’ll like this video. A big thunderous Thanks goes out to all of you who support me by subscribing!

Trace Elliot ELF & Fender Rumble – A portable & cheap bass rig!

Review, test & sound demo by Have Guitar

In this video I’ll demo and talk about my bass rig, a Trace Elliot ELF Bass Head amplifier and a Fender Rumble 115 cabinet. I was looking for a portable and not too expensive rig as I accepted the part as a bass player in a local band. I was a bit worried if this would be loud enough for a band situation but it has proven itself to be good enough and then some… (band setting is drummer and two guitarists playing through ‘lunch box’ tube amps).

So, the Trace Elliot ELF is a very small amp that actually could fit in the backpocket of your jeans. Unless you wear a very tiny size of jeans course. According to me and my taste it sounds great – together with my Thunderbird bass it delivers a loud punchy roar. The sound in this video is a mix of the lined signal (XLR into my soundcard, Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 2nd gen) and the Fender Rumble 115 cab mic’ed with a Shure SM57, I felt that gives the best represenation of how the rig sounds.

I got the Fender Rumble 115 cab on a sale for less then half of the list price so I actually managed to buy a well sounding and compact bass rig for less than 5000 Swedish crowns (c:a 518 US Dollar or 465 Euros). For the price I payed for the Rumble I can’t find anything negative to say about, it sounds great together with the ELF!

I’ve tried be record this video somewhat methodically – going through the three EQ option in order to show how they affect the sound. Would have been nice if I would have had another bass to add in but I don’t plan on spending any more money on basses. Right now that is.

I do hope you like this video, a usbsctiption is welcome if you do… well, it’s welcome if you don’t too. There’s a new video released every Thursday on my channel and hopefully they get better as time goes by. I would like to express my gratitude to you who subscribe – it is very much appreciated so Thank You!!!

Black Box MKII by Riot (power supply test / review)

Test / Review by Have Guitar

Need a power supply for your pedals? Short on money? Then the Riot Black Box MKII might be something for you. I got tired of my bulky adaptors that takes up more than one space in the power strip so I went to the local music store to see what they could offer. I had planned to spend some more money but then I got greedy and thought I could try this one out.

Seems like this model is quite new and there is not much info to get about it. Heard a rumour that it might be Harley-Benton who’s making these but that is nothing but a rumour so far. It is made in china and the build of the unit seems more than descent for the price. Metal casing and 10 outs for less than 60 Euros? Great. Have a look at the video for my ‘verdict’.

I certainly hope you will like this video and please do support Have Guitar with your subscription if you do. Just wanna scream Thank You to all you who do subscribe, appreciate it!

Rumble Drive Overdrive Pedal by Mooer (Pedal sound demo & review)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar

I’ve been aware and curious about the Mooer pedals since I tried their mini-wha, The Whater, a couple of years back (it was good!). All I know really is that it is a Chinese company – for me that doesn’t mean it has to be crap. Anyways, so I had a couple of giftcards at the local music store and I came back with 4 Mooer pedals, three of them I got at reduced price.

This video is about the Mooer Rumble Drive Overdrive pedal. Seems most of Mooer’s pedals are based on other wellknown pedals and I did find a webpage that lists them all (the link provided further down). The Rumble Drive is no exception – it’s based on the Hermida/Lovepedal Zendrive. I’ve never tried the Zendrive but I have read some good stuff about it.

And I can tell you; this little green metal box contains some magic tones! I was honestly impressed by the possibilities and the sounds that this pedal brings to the table. It just would not sound bad – especially when you keep volume control up. This one IS a keeper, no doubts about that – just listen to my demo/review of it and judge for yourself!

Gibson SG Government Series 1 (Guitar review)

Guitar review by Have Guitar!

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.

Guitar review by Have Guitar

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.

Marshall DSL20H – Test & Review!

Marshall DSL20H – Test & Review!
…by Have Guitar

In this video we’ll take an extensive look at the Marshall DSL20H tube amplifier – can you get a better tube amplifier in this price range?! This little head can do most styles and let have a look at the spec’s:

2 Channels (Classic gain and Ultra gain)
20W switchable to 10W
Outputs: 3 x 1/4″ (16/8 Ohm load) + 1 x 1.35 mm jack emulated line out
Inputs: 1 x 1/4″ instrument jack, 1 x 1,35 mm jack aux in, footswitch
FX Loop w Send/Return
Digital Reverb built-in
Preamp valves: 3 x ECC83
Power amp valves: 2 x EL34
Weight: 9.7 kg / 21 lbs

So this is small and light, can go from close to clean to screaming gain, has loads of EQ options and can be bought brand new for less than 390 euros / 440 USD. I was totally impressed by this little power pack and would not mind getting one myself.

Would also like to throw in that this was the first time we recorded at this location, the light was worse than I though so next time I’ll bring my studio lights. Also the sound is picked up as we hear it in the room but, next time I think still I should place the microphones close to the speaker.
