DP Durple by Tone City (pedal review – demo – showcase)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

Here’s a new guitar overdrive pedal from Tone City – DP Durple! So it is not a signature pedal but it’s collaboratively designed by Tone City and “Danish Pete” from Andertons. The DP Durple is based on Tone City Mandragora OD but modified to suit Danish Pete’s tonal taste.

So the Tone City Mandragora is based on the Kalamazoo Love Drive and the DP Durple is as said based on the Mandragora, with some modifications. The Mandragora’s ‘Pre’ (presence) has been replaced by a ‘Mid’ control that let’s you cut or boost the amount of mid-range. The ‘Tone’ control has been adjusted to be less bright, offering a more moderate amount of treble so it’s not too shrill at the higher settings.

Otherwise it’s a small but sturdy analogue pedal; metal casing and true bypass. The dimensions are 4.2 x 5.2 x 9.3 cm and it needs a 9VDC power supply, no battery compartment. The controls are gain, volume, mid and tone.

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!!

Triple Crown by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Time for a dive into that never-ending stream of Kemper profile packs from ToneJunkie – the Triple Crown! So, this pack recreates the sound from a Mesa Boogie Triple Crown… what’s up with not changing the packs name to something like Fripple Clown by the way?

Mesa Boogie describes this amp as capable of “bubbly, sparkling clean sounds”, “amazingly tight and aggressive wall of Rock Crunch” and “our most vocal, harmonically rich and gain-laden high-gain channels ever”. Sounds good, eh? To make it really versatile you can also use the BIAS switch to change between different tubes in the amp.

ToneJunkie’s profile pack comes with profiles done with all three different tube settings; 6L6, EL34 and 6V6. And the result is described as “…the most versatile pack we have every created. American Cleans, Tweedy Mids, Tight Drive, Crunch and over the top saturation…” And I agree! This pack almost have it all and you will find some profiles that are more high gain than we’re used seeing from ToneJunkie. It is a great pack indeed!

Hope you like this demo! A subscription is welcome if you wanna support Have Guitar! A triple Thanks to You who already do!!

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!!

Ignite Amps Emissary Setup in your DAW

HowTo by Have Guitar!

This video shows how to setup Ignite Amps Emissary together with Nad IR Impulse Response Loader in your DAW. I use Reaper but if you’re running another DAW I’m pretty sure what I do here is quite easily transposed into your DAW of choise.

The reason I’m doing this video is because I have gotten various questions about how to get Emissary to work. I hope I have covered enough and in a simple way that is easy to understand! Feel free to ask and I will provide an answer if I can. Same thing if you feel I have missed something or if I could have done it better in anyway – I’m always open for constructive critisism but you will have to live with my Swedish accent! 😉

Hope you liked the video and that you got some help out of it! If you feel you wanna support my channel – subscribe! Doesn’t cost you a dime, but you knew that already right? To You who do subscribe – Thank You!!!

Orange Rockerverb Ultimate Kemper Profiles by Gold Lion Audio (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Another ‘premier’ – the new Orange Rockerverb Ultimate Kemper Profile pack from Gold Lion Audio – yes! The Orange amps has a special sound that hits me in the right spot every time and this pack is no different.

Another good thing with this profile pack is that it comes with studio, direct and merged profiles – something for all tastes in other words! Also there has been five different cabs used while creating these profiles which gives a good variation of tones. Might add that these profiles recreates the sound from an Orange Rockerverb 100 head!

There is not much else to say than this is a great pack if you like that orange tone… personally, I love it. So thanks for watching Have Guitar and I do hope you will like this demo. Please support the channel with a subscription! To you who do already – Thanks!!!

Sonic Jet by Live Ready Sound (Kemper Profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Would you like to try a $5000 amp for less than $30? Well, here’s your chance with Live Ready Sound sbrand new Kemper profile pack Sonic Jet! These profiles recreates the sound of a Komet Concorde amplifier, that is not something you will see every day!

Komet amps labels this amp as a “rock and roll monster” and I am inclined to agree! It has a clssic vibe to it and if I may say so these profiles offers an inspirational tone. Might be it is not an coincident that they claim this amplifier has supersonic playability!

So in some of the demos I have used a couple of pedals – LunaStone True Overdrive 1 and the Mooer Ultra Drive MKII – it’s nice to spice your dish up! And I have also given the video a Purple tint by doing some classic Deep Purple riffs. Can you spot them? Let me know in the comments! If you dont – there is a index to those riffs at the end of this description!!

Thanks for watching my channel, I appreciate it and I can just hope You like it. I am just a guitar crazed guy from Sweden, no claims to to be best in any way… But I love playing and this channel is a way for me to myself motivated to (hopefully) evolve my playing. If you support that notion – gimme a subscribtion! To you guys and girls sub’ing to my channel – Thanks! You are truly the crop of the cream!

Sweet Cream by Tone City – overdrive pedal review & sound demos

Demo by Have Guitar!

Intrigued by the sound a fellow Swedish guitar player got out of the Tone City Sweet Cream, I just had to get me some of these pedals. He was actually using the Tone City Sweet Cream together with the Tone City Golden Plexi, a great pair! (I do think it was Rob Chapman who started pairing them up!) However this video is just the Sweet Cream, I’ll publish another one with bort later on.

The Sweet Cream is an overdrive pedal that will serve you a fluid and creamy sound. It can do that lovely just breaking up tone but it can also generate some bite – but not like an aggressive metal tone. As mentioned above it works fine together with other pedals as well.

The pedal is small and very easy to use with only three controls – gain, volume and touch. The touch control isn’t like your normal tone control, it alter the sound in a little more complex way. As for the volume control, well it feels like it does more than just alter the volume, higher settings seems to add more bite and punch to the sound.

So the pedal has a simple and effective design and comes at a very affordable price. According to various sources it is based on the Mad Professor Honey Overdrive, so you can compare the price difference yourself… I do wish I had one of those so I could have made a side by side test but unfortunately I don’t.

I hope you like this demo, there will be a bunch more Tone City pedal reviews coming up here at Have Guitar! Feel free to subscribe to Have Guitar!, your support is needed! And as always; Thank You to all you who already subscribes – much obliged!!!
