Rig Showcase: ReampZones Engl Savage 120

Have Guitar is happy to be able to present – pictures at an exhibition! No, wait, that’s not it… ah, yes – ReampZones Engl Savage 120! Oh metal, you think but think again! This is a really flexible profiles pack for your Kemper, containing profiles that sweep from clean to raw gain and anything between. Or as ReampZone says it on their webpage: “A highly versatile 120 high gain monster with a fantastic natural tight bottom end , this head can do it all from crisp cleans to blazing metal at the tip of your fingers.” I could not agree more!

In this Rig Showcase from Have Guitar you will get a varied selection from these profiles – mostly lined recording but also some samples from live in the room. For a couple of these Kemper profiles I’ll be adding delay and the infamous transpose effect but otherwise all profiles are dislayed as they come when you buy this pack (that contains 53 Direct Profiles and 28 Studio Profiles for your KPA). Also included are some backing track demo’s so who can hear the profiles “in the mix”.

Guitars used in this rig showcase: Gibson Les Paul 1976, Harley Benton TE-70 Black Paisley (with Fender Texas Specials pickups), Fender Stratocaster (Shawbucker) and an ESP Phoenix II.

Rig Showcase: ReampZones Marshall 2555X Silver Jubilee

Have Guitar is proud to present a Kemper Rig Showcase for ReampZone’s Marshall 2555X Silver Jubilee. In this rig pack you will get 29 Direct profiles and 33 Studio profiles with gain from 0 to 8. The profiles in this pack really reflect the original amp, that was redesigned for more tonal flexibility than (at the time) the previous Marshall amps.

As Marshall puts it on their webpage for this amp: “The Bass, Middle, Treble & Presence controls, although shared between channels, were re-designed and offered more tonal variation than any other Marshall product had before.” My opinion is that there are some really sweet tones to be found in this pack and well, it certainly sounds like a Marshall should!

In this Kemper Rig Showcase I will demonstrate a selection of these fine profiles, the examples will be mainly lined recordings but I included a couple of “live in the room” samples for comparisons sake. I’ve also included some samples where the profiles are used together with backing tracks, a good way to showcase how they work in the mix.

Guitars used in this Rig Showcase: Gibson Les Paul ’76, Gibson Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S., ESP Phoenix II and Harley Benton TE-70 Black Paisley – a good selection of guitars with very different sounds for a wider aspect of how these profiles sounds.

I hope you like this video from Have Guitar as much as I enjoyed playing with this fantastic pack from ReampZone… if you like it, please consider subscribing to the channel – it’s just a click on the subscribe button for you but it will support the channel and enable more videos.

Rig Showcase: Top Jimis Stevens 100 Pack

Have Guitar proudly presents a Rig Showcase for Top Jimis Stevens 100 Pack. A rig pack loaded with 20 Studio Profiles for your Kemper Profiling Amp. These profiles recreates the sound of the Friedman SS100, Steve Stevens signature model amp. For my part, I fell for this pack directly when I heard the demo at Top Jimis web page; I just had to get it and so I did! To me these profiles have a really nice character and a great sounding tone in them, but don’t take my word for it – listen to this Rig Showcase right now and make your own opinion.

In this Rig Showcase I will be using four different guitars to demo these profiles: Gibson Les Paul 1976, Gibson Ace Frehley Budokan Les Paul Custom VOS, ESP Phoenix II and the infamous Harley Benton Black Paisley (with Fender Texas Specials pickups). All in all a great set of electric guitars to provide very broad perspective of how these Kemper profiles actually sound. Most, if not all, of the sound examples will be lined recordings so you’ll know what it will sound like if you get this pack (and I think that you should…!).

This is what Friedman themselves write about the original amplifier:
“The SS100 is a 100-watt EL34 powered, two channel plus BOOST, high gain tone machine that is capable of producing many styles of music from blues to classic rock and from heavy rock to metal by simply adjusting the gain and master controls. Likewise the versatile and gorgeous clean channel is great for a whole palette of styles.

You will notice instantly, the tight bottom end and rich harmonically detailed chords and single notes. This amp cleans up remarkably well with the guitar’s volume control, even with the amp on higher gain settings. ”

And of course, I will do just that – rolling off the volume to show you how Top Jimis profiles handles that through the Kemper.

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!

Rig Showcase: ReampZone Peavey JSX

Time for another Kemper Rig Showcase and in this episode Have Guitar! takes a look at the Peavey JSX rig pack from ReampZone. Described by ReampZone as a monster of high gain, tight and fierce – designed for metal heads and that’s right but it doesn’t stop there. This amp head (or rather these profiles) will not stop at metal, it’s fully capable of dirty rock to raw blues and it does it all very well. So far this JSX pack offers 16 direct profiles and 20 studio profiles for your Kemper Profiling Amp with a promise of more profiles coming. So, in this Rig Showcase Have Guitar! will give you a bunch of sound examples, mostly lined recordings, side-by-side comparison of profiles in the same gain level and in-the-mix examples – played with a Fender Stratocaster American Standard (Shawbucker and single-coils) and an ESP Phoenix II (Seymour Duncan JB / ’59), two sound wise very different guitars to bring you a wider perspective of how these profiles actually sound.

The original amp is a signature model for Joe Satriani, designed to offer lots of sound possibilities, from vintage to modern triple XXX-style. The three channel 120W amp produces sounds from clean to heavy/hard rock, offers high gain and low gain inputs together with a “fat switch” that changes the timbre of the crunch and ultra channels. It also features a built-in noise gate for those screaming high gain sounds.

A big thanks to ReampZone for letting Have Guitar! try out/showcase these profiles – I hope you will like the video as much as I enjoyed this profile pack!
