69 Silver Lowman by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Here’s another fine pack from ToneJunkie’s neverending effort to profile every amp in the world: 69 Silver Lowman! These profiles aims to recreate the sound from a 1969 Fender Bassman “drip edge”. (And if you like me don’t know what “drip edge” means; it’s a silver lining around the cabinet of the amp).

So this is obviously a vintage amplifier and according to me the Fender Bassman’s are great amps. Not if you wanna do Meshugga (laughs) but I’d say they can handle most musical styles quite well. From sweet clean tone to screaming classic gain! The profile pack comes with 29 profiles; 25 studio and 4 direct’s.

Also, someone might wonder why I’m using the black Gibson SG when I’m doing the “2 guitars, 1 profile” comparision. Well, I recorded the first part with the Yellow SG before I went on vacation… so when I got back home and started recording again, 8-10 days had passed and not really thinking before acting I just picked up the black SG instead of the yellow one. Forgetful? Me?! Nah…!

That’s it – hope you like the video and support ToneJunkie and buy the pack if you like what you hear! If you wanna support me you don’t have to buy anything, just click the subscribe button. A great many thanks to all you who subscribes!!

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!

Tony Iommi (TI) Boost by Laney Black Country Customs (pedal test)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

Here’s a pedal I have been looking forward to trying out, the Laney Black Country Customs TI Boost – where TI stand for Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath! So, this is a not a regular dist box but rather what is called a clean boost. It’s kinda a replica of what Iommi used in the early days of Sabbath but with some extra controls for gain, treble and base.

Just wanna say that I have used a slightly different approach in how I recorded this video… very much just improvising and noodling around as I try different settings on the pedal, I do hope it comes out OK. The editing of this video was cursed somehow… whatever could go wrong, went wrong! To a degree where I almost went ahead re-recorded it all over again. Just saying. Any comments – especially constructive critisim – is very welcome, I’m still experimenting on how to provide a nice overview of a pedal.

Anyways, I do hope you’ll like the video! And as in every video’s description I would like to say Thanks to you who subscribe, your support is awesome!

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.

Index:

(Pete’s Profiles – Wizard, Deadlight Studios – Piwi Perspective, BM Profiles – Fman, ToneJunkie – Bad Kitty Luke)
03:25 – Talk: head/neck etc

08:26 – Talk: playability, pickups etc
11:43 – Hi Gain

March 2019 Dan Sugerman by ToneCrate (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

A new month and a new pack from ToneCrate – this time it’s Dan Sugarman (As Blood Runs Black) who is the featured signature artist. This pack contains a bunch of profiles tweaked by him and those are the profiles demoed in this video… of course! The style is quite varied with some of the profiles quite effects heavy. All in all some good tones are to be found here.

For those of you who are not familiar with the ToneCrate concept; it’s a subscription service where you get a new pack of Kemper profiles each month. Pretty much like for example the loot crates you can subscribe to but here you get profiles instead. Pretty fun and interesting and not too expensive so why not join in? I believe the concept of having a signature artist tweaking the sound is really great and a way to insure you will get a personal touch in each package.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar! and I do hope you liked the video! Feel free to subscribe to support my channel, that will be appreciated. For all subscribers – Thanks!!

V90 Mesa MK V by TMS Profiles + Giveaway! (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase and Giveaway by Have Guitar!

Time for another rig showcase and this time it’s the brand new profile pack from TMS Profiles – V90 Mesa MK V! Now this was a pleasure to try out, loads and loads of great sound profiles… and the pack is cheap too! And to add to that, if you watch this video you could have a chance of winning a copy of this profile pack for free! That’s right, TMS Profiles was so kind that they let me giveaway 5 copies of this pack! Ain’t that grand?! So the instructions of getting into the giveaway comes at the end of video.

DEADLINE for this giveaway: 21st of March 2019, 23:59!
(The Winners will be presented in a video a couple of days after the DL!)

The V90 MK V pack comes loaded with 99 merged profiles for your Kemper profiling amp – some of them has effects included from the start and do believe all of them has inactivated effects included. A tip, that I also mention in the video, is to lower the Noise Gate – seems ALL the profiles has quite a high setting and lowering the NG helps to make the tone feel a bit more dynamic in my opinion.

So that is it, I do hope you like the video AND the giveaway – once again thanks to TMS profiles for being so generous!! Also, feel free to sunscribe to Have Guitar to support my channel, it will be much appreciated. And as always to all you subscribing – thanks for Your support!

High End Fizz – rid it!

High End Fizz – rid it!
A video by Have Guitar

Here’s a little something that I for some reson don’t do too often in my videos – shaping the sound with the equalizer of the Kemper. But I do know a lot people writing about having problems with high gain and “fizz”, a disturbing bi-sound that makes your tones a lot less appealing than it could be. The fizz is often (perhaps even always!) located in the higher frequencies of the EQ-scale and it’s doesn’t really take magic to get rid of it.

So I thought a small video on this topic could be in place and this it. If you wanna skip to a particualr section here’s a (very small) index:

02:39 – Friedman BE100 with a Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019
06:42 – Victory Kraken with a Gibson SG Standard HP 2016

As said in the video there’s a bunch of Kemper profile packs based on this amp – have a look at my Rig Showcase-playlists and you’ll find a bunch of demo’s from other profilers.

Top Cap Club Loyale by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Top Cap Club Loyale by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Welcome to what could be the first Rig Showcase from Have Guitar in 2019! (Not sure about the release order as I’m writing this…). So this is the Top Cap Club Royale from ToneJunkie – 30 studio and 6 direct profiles for your Kemper Profiling Amp – recreating the sound of a Top Hat Club Royale amp. What’s that? Well, I don’t know about you but I sure didn’t know anything about this amp before I tried out this pack. Gotta give the hat off to ToneJunkie for being able to pull out stuff like this from their magic hat! (Alright, enough hat jokes for now!!)

The amp is a 20 watt combo that comes as 1×12 or 2×12 and if you want more info there’s a link further down to Top Hat Amps webpage. This amp has it’s character and sound pretty good if ask me but the range would be from clean to classic rockand no further. As always it’s great to try out an amp I will probably never even be close to even if it’s in the profile shape. Hats off to ToneJunkie for that! (Oops, sorry… no more hat jokes from. Promise!)

And that’s about it! Hope you enjoy the video and feel free to push that subscribe button to give some much appreciated support to me and my channel! A big, fat Thanks to all you who subscribe, couldn’t keep it up without you!
