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?

Have Guitar takes a look at the built-in distortion effects / stompboxes in the Kemper Profiling Amp. There are seven of them; distortion, overdrives and fuzz… all trying to emulate the real deal like TS-808, MXR Distortion+, Electro Harmonix Big Muff and the ProCo Rat – to mention some of them. All of these seven distortion effects will be applied to the same profile (Orange TH30 (Modded) from ReampZone) in this video to make it easier to hear how they affect the sound and also to make it easier to hear the difference between these Kemper effects. And what would a rundown like this be worth if we didn’t turn the knobs? I’ve tested them all in four different settings (where possible as some of them doesn’t have a tone control) for maximum diversity.
Some say the distorion effects in the Kemper Profling Amp are sub-par but I really don’t know if I agree on that statement. Now, many profiles comes with gain enough allright and some profiles has been created withreal stompboxes in the chain as boosts but that doesn’t mean you cant activate these built-in effects to tweak and/or color the profile according to your taste… you kan keep the gain up but the volume up to strenghten the tone a bit, color the sound with some more / less treble or low / high pass filters through the tone control. The options are endless and the hunt for the perfect sound never stops!

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!
So, here’s the first backing track from Have Guitar! Hope you like it – I find it being very easy to solo free form over this backing track and straight in the key of A unless you wish to complicate things…
Title: 69 over 70
Style & Key: Heavy rock in A
Recorded with a Fender American Stratocaster and an Ibanez bass. Drums from Addicitive Drums 2.
Here’s a video where we showcase two fine and totally different (compared to each other) tube amps: the Fender Blues Junior III and the Blackstar HT-5R. The Fender Blues Junior III is pretty much an amp that does cleans and light overdrive sound, with no whistles or bells. On the other hand we have the Blackstar HT-5R, only 5 watts, but a whole range of options. No pedals were harmed in this video (by which I mean the guitars was plugged straight into the amps… if you didn’t get that!).
Guitars used in this video:
Fender Stratocaster American Standard HSS 2016
Gibson Les Paul Classic T 2017
Music Man StingRay 2016

Have Guitar is back with a new showcase of ReampZones Krank REV 1, one monster rig pack for the Kemper Profiling Amp! This pack is based on the Krank Revolution 1 tube amplifier and contains 30 direct profiles and 19 studio profiles – in this showcase you will hear all 19 of the studio profiles played with my ESP Phoenix II guitar. It sounds great and heavy and it’s a blast to play…! Krank it up!!!

(OK, so that was a mistake – the Krank Revolution 1 is not the same amp as the Krankenstein… but it’s still a monster according to Have Guitar!)

Here’s a video from when Have Guitar visited the 4Sound store in Kristianstad, Sweden. So, we’re talking swedish in this video but I have added subtitles that covers what we’re talking about.
4Sound in Kristianstad was established in 1988 and has 350 squaremeters loaded with the good stuff and offers great variety in it’s stock. 4Sound is the largest retail chain in Sweden/Scandinavia when it comes to music equipment and they have 35 stores over Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
Just a cover of Motörheads Ace of Spades, that’s it. No claims that this would in any way be better than the original, it’s just a tribute that I recorded with sorrow in my heart just a couple of days after Lemmy left us. For me, Motörhead peaked with Overkill, Bomber, Ace of Spades and Overkill – it’s just the golden era for me. Loved’em from the first day I heard them and still do.
Recorded and mixed at The Shrine of Distortion studio.

This pack contains 15 profiles and in this video I showcase all of them, played on my ESP Phoenix II – plus I added a couple of examples where I play a lead using these profiles, to a backing track.
