Kemper through the Katana FX Loop – test!

Kemper through the Katana FX Loop – test!
…by Have Guitar

Might be this video is slightly overdue but now it’s here. As you might know I already did a video where I test running the Kemper through the Boss Katana, using the aucoustic channel on the Katana and hooking up the KPA straight into the front of the amp. And back then I promised to do a similar test but with the Kemper through the Katanas effects loop and this is it!

In this video you will get the following examples for the four different profiles that I tested out:

* Recorded straight into Reaper (Kemper-SPDIF-Soundcard-Reaper)
* Kemper through my studio monitors, Event ASP8
* Kemper through the Katanas FX loop; Cab on and Cab character set to 0.0
* Kemper through the Katanas FX loop; Cab on and Cab character set to -5.0
* Kemper through the Katanas FX loop; Cab off

I was a bit surprised that the last test did not work that well, sounded a bit harsh to me… I’m open for suggestions if I maybe did some mistake there so feel free to lecture me. Otherwise I still feel it sounds good. So the Katana is not a real FRFR speaker and I’m pretty sure one of those will do the jobb even better. But, then we have the price factor! A Katana costs around 1/3 of a FRFR solution and considering that, well I think it performs pretty darn good as an inexpensive solution. Also as I stated in the video, if the Kemper would fail you – the you have a backup right there in the Boss Katana as that works well on its own.

I do hope you liked the video – support my channel by subscription for more and better videos! To all you who subscribes – Thank You!

Trace Elliot ELF & Fender Rumble 115 Cab – Unboxing

Trace Elliot ELF & Fender Rumble 115 Cab
Unboxing by Have Guitar

Yep, I got myself a bass rig – started playing bass in a band and I just had to get a descent, lightweight and not too expensive rig. And of course, I wanted it to sound good too! So this is what I came up with – the Trace Elliot micro bass amp together with a Fender Rumble 115 cab (one 15″ speaker).

This is just the unboxing video and I also managed to play the sound demo so loud that my video camera got a slightly distorted sound… ugh. Sorry for that, I’ll do a review video with better sound as soon as possible.

Here’s an index for ya:
04:18 – Trace Elliot ELF out of the box
05:34 – Mooer Thunderbolt pedal, just slightly out of the box
06:13 – Fender Rumble 115 cab out of the box
06:46 – very short sound demo

Equipment used in this video:
Trace Elliot ELF
Fender Rumble 115 cab
Epiphone Thunderbird Classic IV Pro (Gibson TB Plus)

Rob Maramonte (November 2018) by ToneCrate (Kemper profiles demo)

Rob Maramonte (November 2018) by ToneCrate (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Disclaimer: October or November? Slightly confusing here, but Rob is listed as the October featured artist and the pack arrived early November. So from now on I will list it as when it arrives = this IS the November pack. For me at least.

Time for a new surprize pack from ToneCrate and this month its tweaked by Rob Maramonte from The Zenith Passage. It’s 9 really heavy profiles (and one clean!) and so far this is my favourite from ToneCrate!

So, the amps included here is Peavey Triple X, EVH 5150 III, Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier, Peavey 5150, Marshall JCM 800 and Bogner Uberschall. As said, most of the sounds are hard and heavy except one clean tone. It’s good…

Hope you like the demo – hit that sub-button to support Have Guitar! A never-ending Thanks goes out to all you who sub!!

V30 The Countess MKii by Victory Amps / Rabea Massaad (Kemper profiles demo)

V30 The Countess MKii by Victory Amps / Rabea Massaad (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Time for the second part of this “mini series” of he Rig Showcase where I demo the official Kemper profile pack from Victory amps! It is time to have a listen to the Victory V30 The countess MKii! As I have said before I bow to Victory amps for this initiative and that they brought in Rabea Massaad – that’ll surely attract attention from players who like his style.

So, the V30 The Countess was developed with Guthrie Govan has some special feature that the original V30 did not have. Most of those are irrelevant when you are running the Kemper profile but if you want more info see the links below. Once again, these profiles are really nothing close to metal so if you’re looking for that – search elsewhere. Still the profiles has gain enough and a smooth nice character – for me most of them needed some extra tweaking to suit my preferences.

As always, thanks for watching Have Guitar – a loud shoutout to all you who support me by subscribing, Thanks!! If you don’t – feel free to support me by a sub, together we stand strong… right?

God of War by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

God of War by Live Ready Sound (KRS Ares 50)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Time for a closer look at the God of War pack from Live Ready Sound. This is a pack that is based on a KRS Ares 50 amplifier and it brings a long 95 Kemper profiles (8 direct profiles), of course ranging from clear to gain dripping sounds. I’m pretty sure the pack will grow over time and there will surely be at least a couple more updates from Live Ready Sound.

The KRS Ares 50 seems to be a really versatile amp with lots of options through voice switching and much more. If you are interested take a look at the detailed description provided by KRS on their website. The link is of found further down in this description.

V40 Deluxe Pack by Victory Amps (Kemper profiles demo)

V40 Deluxe Pack by Victory Amps (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Here a new Kemper Rig Showcase – welcome! So, Victory Amps got Rebea Massaad to make them some official Kemper profiles packs, that is a stroke of genius if you ask me. This is a typical example of creative thinking that will allow you to stay in business by adopting to the changes that will occur. I’m kinda surprised noone has cracked this idea before, but I guess someone has to be first!

So, I figured I’d do a mini series that will “air” on sundays here at Have Guitar and first out is the V40 Deluxe, an amp for the “feel players” as Victory puts it. Sure is no gain monster and it’s described as “expect classic American cleans through to pushed tweedy grit and on to driven British blues-rock” which I think is about right.

In the video I mention a bit about the dark character of the profiles. After this session I hooked up my Kemper to the Boss Katana and I must say that gave a different sound. So, that is not included here but will most likely be in the coming Victory videos!

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.

Index –

05:04 – 65 Lowman by ToneJunkie, clean with Gibson Explorer
10:16 – Red General by Warm Chord Music, low gain with Fender Stratocaster
12:43 – Red General by Warm Chord Music, low gain with Gibson Explorer
17:46 – Ruler of Amps by Live Ready Sound, mid gain with Fender Stratocaster
