JTM45 by Mattfig (Kemper profiles demo)

Is it a bird? Or a plane?! No, it’s Mattfigs new Kemper profile pack – the JTM45! Based on a classic Marshall amplifier model this is bound to give you a genuine Marshall sound. The first iteration of the Marshall came out in 1963 (according to Wikipedia, Marshall claims 1962!), more or less copying the Fender Bassman. Now that is a cool amp but Marshall is Marshall, like it or hate it!

You will find a good variation in this profile pack, if I should give you my personal recommendation it is to try raising the Clarity (amp)parameter. That is not exclusive for these profiles – many times when I feel I am a bit disatisfied with a profile, if the Clarity parameter is set to zero; boosting it gives a good return in many cases.

Well that is it. I do hope you like the video, if you do (and even if you don’t!) feel free to support this little independent Swedish channel with a subscription. Thank you to all of you who already do. Close to 3000 subscribers? I didn’t believe I would get 100 even, when I started this channel! You’re all awesome!

Dummble Pack by Top Jimi (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Here’s a demo of the Dummble Pack from Top Jimi – it’s a great pack of tones here according to my opinion and taste! It’s a big pack with over 100 profiles and it’s not very expensive.

So, Dummble you say? Seems there’s a lot of various Dumble sounds floating around. And I guess that isn’t surprising considering a used Dumble amp can cost way over 100 000 USD!! So these profiles comes from a Ceriatone Overtone Special (100 watts), and that should be a ‘clone’ of an original Dumble amp (and a lot cheaper by that!).

Clone may sound a bit degrading, I don’t really care because it sounds great! Rich tones, great gain sound and various styles of sound is what this pack from Top Jimi will get ya and I hope my demo shows that. Me? I really digg this pack, it is a keeper for sure!!

This profile pack contains both studio as well as merged profiles, profiled with three different speakers; 12″ Celestion Vintage 30, 1970 12″ Celestion 25W Greenback and 1967 12″ Celestion 20W Greenback.

West Avalon by Mattfig (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Time for Have Guitar Rig Showcase #2:20 and here’s a rare beast profiled; West Laboratories Amplifiers Avalon by Mattfig! This pack packs some serious vintage raw power and brings 131 profiles (both studio and direct).

So what about the amp behind this sound? Well, it’s West Amps and it’s kinda hard finding much information about them. These amps were built by David West and made their clame to fame by being used by Grand Funk Railroad (on their first four albums).

West stopped making these amps full-time at the end of the 70’s and by the end of the 80’s he closed business to go on other ventures. Or did he? I have found other sources that states he left the business already in 1972 and that reissues of the classic West amps were launched around 2013. I don’t know which of the above is true, the information is scarce…

Anyways, this pack recreates the sound from a West Avalon amp, 50 watts and I would say it covers all lot of ground… nice warm cleans up to quite heavy (pedal boosted) tones.

There we go! Hope you enjoyed this video, if you wanna support my channel please subscribe! Thanks to all of you who already do!

Top 5 2019 Kemper profile packs! (Kemper profiles demo)

Top 5 by Have Guitar!

Another year passed and here is my top 5 list of the packs that I have demoed during 2019! It was not an easy task to pick out only 5 of the 40 something packs that I have had the pleasure of testing. It’s a dirty job but someones gotta do it! I have taken all sorts of things into consideration when chosing the five; number of profiles, tweaking of the original amp, sound, feel, effects, price and so on. In the end it’s my own experience from the packs that counts, how fun was it to play? How inspirational were the tones?

So thanks again for the year that has passed, hope you’ll keep following Have Guitar for 2020 as well! For 2020 I’m planning on doing even more varied videos and I would to do some more practicing and recording of songs. If I will have the time for that, time will tell. I’ve also been thinking on doing some album reviews – starting on the Have Guitar Facebook page but maybe and just maybe that could be something to do in video format as well? We’ll see…

Wishing you all a fantastic 2020 and again thanks for the subs, the views and your comments!

KSR Juno by ReampZone (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

I hope you had a great new years eve – this video is the first one of 2020 and well, I just thought it would be nice to publish one of the first day of the new year! Another thing that is nice – it’s a new pack from ReampZone, yay! Only direct profiles so far but no doubt this will be updated with studio profiles during the coming months.

The KSR webpage doesn’t really more than “Dual channel, 100W or 50W, configurable gain & response guitar amplifier.” about this amp. But considering it’s price, you probably know what you want if you buy one. Anyways, they have some demo videos of the real deal at their webpage so check out the link below if you wanna have a look and listen to it!

Also coming tomorrow – my top five picks of Kemper profile packs that I have demoed during 2019. And that’s it for this description! I hope you like the demo and if you do feel free to support Have Guitar with your subscription! And new fresh 2020-Thanks to all You who do sub!!

Gibson Explorer Vampire Blood Moon – Review & Test

Gibson Explorer Vampire Blood Moon – Review & Test
A review by Have Guitar!

They mostly come out at night… mostly… So the Gibson Explorer Vampire Blood Moon is obviously horror inspired, I guess it’s from all those teenage vampire flings that were so popular some years back. This model came out in 2011 and it was a limited run of 400 Blood Moons. Well, the name and the theme of this Explorer might put you off but the guitar itself is really good, plays well and those active Gibson pickups and sounds good with most styles… clean is no problem, add some gain and it responds well all the way up to brutal metal style sounds.

Allright so the Vampire Blood Moon has some features not so common for a stock Gibson Explorer… like the Gibson GEM active pickups and the Schaller Floyd Rose locking system that stands out. And then, as said, the theme of the guitar. Cough, cough…

So for this review I’ve used a slightly different technique than in my previous review videos. Rather than having me reading out all the specifications of the guitar, I’ve included the spec’s together with closeup clips of the Blood Moon during the sound examples. I really think that creates a better flow in the video and if you wanna read all the spec’s of the guitar take a visit at the link provided further down. Feel free to let me know in the comments if you like this new style!

Also note the sound demos are created playing through a Kemper Profiling Amp, unless otherwise stated it’s lined recordings (Kemper-SPDIF-Focusrite Saffire 6i6-Reaper) but I have included some examples described as “In the room” and that means the sound is recorded by microphones in the room, which pretty much sounds like what I am hearing while recording.

Index:
01:43 – ToneJunkie MatchC30 (Matchless amp), clean sound
02:25 – ReampZone Dumble ODS, mid gain
03:03 – TMS Profiles Marshall 6100, mid gain
03:40 – ReampZone Bogner Uberschall Twin Jet, high gain
04:07 – Live Ready Sound Eddied EL34 (5153), mid gain & volume test
06:12 – Blood Moon vs Explorer Tribute 2019 comparison starts
07:20 – BM Profiles F-man Pack (Friedman BE100), mid gain
07:59 – Mbritt Mini Nightmare (Driftwood), high gain
08:51 – Comparison conclusion
10:42 – ReampZone Diezel Einstein, high gain
11:25 – SinMix SplawnPM, high gain
11:57 – Guidorist Pvy JSX 2.0, high gain/backing track
