Kemper Rig Showcase: Dr Z’s official profile pack

Have Guitar is excited to give a Kemper Rig Showcase of Dr. Z’s official Kemper profiles! Yup, it’s a unique and first time an amplifier manufacturer releases a profile pack profiled from their own amps!

In this video you will get the sound of Dr Z’s Kemper profiles, both as they sound directly loaded into your KPA but also with some tweaks and effects added. Most the sound examples are directly lined from the Kemper into Cubase but there’s a little ‘captured in the room’ here as well.

And don’t forget – Fret Nut… Have Guitar!

Kemper Effects: Reverbs!

Have Guitar takes a stint stare at the reverberation effects in the Kemper Profiling Amp. For the reverb effects in the KPA you’ll find five different types; Hall, Large room, Small room, Ambience and Matchbox. It’s a somewhat limited range of reverbs but it’s what’s available right now and in this video Have Guitar will go through them all and their settings.

Most of the 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 (on Thursdays) and hopefully I’ll get better as I do so. Thanks for watching my videos and a Very Big Thanks to all of you who allready subscribes!

The unboxing of an Epiphone Thunderbird

A New Gear Day is a good day – Have Guitar! is happy to present the unboxing of the newly acquired Epiphone Thunderbird Classic IV pro base guitar! I’ve had the need of a new, good base for a long while… actually when thinking about it I never had a base that I was really happy with! So it’s about high time I got one!

This is just the unboxing of the Epiphone Thunderbird and some other stuff, a proper review of the base will come soon. The Thunderbird was purchased from Gear4Music.

Kemper Rig Showcase: ReampZones Bogner Uberschall Twin Jet

Have Guitar is uber-excited to present a new Kemper Rig Showcase – ReampZone’s Bogner Uberschall Twin Jet!

Yes, it’s a (almost) brand new rig pack from ReampZone and it’s brutal! So what the heck means uberschall anyways? It’s german and it means super sonic – it’s designed for heavy and aggressive music styles. According to Bogner themselves it works especially well with detuned and baritone guitars. I’d say it works quite well with ordinary guitars as well and not only for extremely hard music.

So, don’t confuse this amp with the ordinary Bogner Uberschall. The Bogner Uberschall Twin Jet was introduced in 2009 and the Twin Jet part of the name implies that it has two channels: one clean that can go from semi clean to hot rodded high gain and one super high gain channel and to this added controls. This amplifier has some really interesting tones and a sound of its own. Just listen and judge for yourself!

And… this is the first Kemper Rig Showcase where I use the new lights. Still dialing in the settings to make the video better but I would say goodbye to those dark videos we’ve seen in the past!

Also – this is the first (but not last) Rig Showcase where I use the Ibanez Destroyer – a killer guitar, watch out for a review of that guitar here at Have Guitar in a near future!

And don’t forget – Fret Nut… Have Guitar! And watch out for those pesky jet’s.

How to change strings: Gotoh Magnum locking tuners

Have Guitar presents a small video on how to change your strings on a guitar with Gotoh Magnum locking tuners. This is the Gotoh Magnums without a “wheel” on the back of the tuners, not 100 % sure but I think these ones are from the SG-series.

These Gotoh Magnum tuners works like this; inside the tuner peg you have a locking shaft and by fixating the top of the tuner peg that shaft will either loose or tighten as you twist the tuner – in other words either detatching or attaching the string. I think this will be more clear to you as you watch the video.

I’ve tossed in a couple of others bits here as well, tips that might come in handy if you don’t know about them before. Hope you will have some use of this video!

And don’t forget – Fret Nut… Have Guitar!

Kemper Rig Showcase: Mattfigs Buddy and Camerica

(Sorry the planned video for ReampZones Bogner Uberschall Twin Jet had to be cancelled due to technical problems… working on solving that!)

Have Guitar is twice as happy as usual to be able to present to you – double feature Kemper Rig Showcase: Mattfigs Buddy and Camerica profile packs!

The Buddy profile pack is based on the Salvation Mods MTS Preamp Buddy – inspired by the american amplifier Budda® Superdrive 60 “with a unique vintage/modern feeling and very expressive voicings” according to the information on their website. To me it sounds like a more vintage style amp and it has some really good tones in it.

The Camerica profile back is based on Salvation Mods MTS preamp Camerica – inspired by the Cameron® Atomica amp (famous variation of Jose circuit), descibed as “High gain amp on HI mode, on LO mode hotrodded plexi with unique saturation”. This pack has some seriously good profiles and it sounds more “modern” than the Buddy.

Kemper Rig Showcase: Live Ready Profiles – Fried Chicken HBE

Have Guitar ostentatiously presents a new Kemper Rig Showcase – Live Ready Profiles Fried Chicken HBE profile pack! Now that name might give you a hint of what amplifier that has been profiled – it’s the Friedman BE-100 (brown eye!).

(As said in the video) Live Ready Profiles is a relatively new profiler that according to me needs some attention, when I got this pack was pleasantly surprised by both variety and quality of the profiles. So, even if I recently did another Kemper Rig Showcase on Mattfigs BE100, I still felt this had to be done.

On Friedmans webpage it’s described as “a hand-wired, 100-watt, EL34 powered, multi-channel British-style amp. By merely adjusting the gain and master volume controls, the BE100 can produce a variety of tones, seamlessly transitioning from blues to classic rock or hard rock to metal. To say it is British-styled is just the start of describing this inspiring tone machine”.

It’s a tone beast and I think anyone would be happy to own this amp however we can’t all afford it… and that’s what makes the KPA so fantastic!
