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 The Mandragora’s ‘Pre’ (presence) has been replaced by a ‘Mid’ control that let’s you cut or boost the amount of mid-range.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.

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!

Riot Drums by Ugritone (Review – Demo – Showcase)

Video by Have Guitar!

Riot Drums from Ugritone is a 64-bit VST/VST3/AU/AXX plugin, inspired by the classic 90’s hard core albums. This drum plugin has many great features like adjustable mics (close, room close/far, overheads…), great routing possibilities and freely adjustable midinotes for the drums.

In this video we’ll go through this drum plugin; looking at the features but of course giving some sound examples as well, standalone as well as “in the mix”. (By the way, the sound of the guitars in the song featured in the video comes from Kemper profiles from ReampZone, bass was recorded with a profile from Live Ready Sounds Traced Bass for Kemper.)

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!!

Quick Spawn Mini Pack by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Here’s a rather fresh release from Live Ready Sound – the Quick Spawn Mini Pack that recreates the sound of a Splawn Quick Rod amplifier!

So the original amp features 100 watt, 2 channels (clean & overdrive), three different “gears” (Hot Rod Plexi, Hot Rod 800 & Super Hot Rod 800), solo boost and more. Check out the link to Splawn amplification below for more information.

The amp in general has a good rep online amongst guitarists and the sound of these profiles will not make you disappointed – unless you’re looking for clean tones. Gain is the keyword and that seems to be where this amp shines! It’s not really modern metal gain style but more classic hard rock / metal if I may say so. All in all you will get 30 studio profiles and 6 direct profiles in this pack, ready to rock your Kemper!

I included some riffs from Dokken and RAT in this video – check the the index at the bottom of this description for that. These profiles sure seems to fit right in that 80’s hair metal sound…

Thanks for watching Have Guitar and I do hope you’ll like it! If you wanna support me – subscribe, doesn’t cost ya a dime! And to you who do subscribe – Thank You! You’re the inspiration as Chicago put it so poetically.

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!!

Founders Amp by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

With a mission to profiles every amp in the world, ToneJunkie keeps us buzy with new profile packs released in an almost alarming pace! So, this pack – the Founders Amp profile pack – was brand new when I recorded this video but by now they released a bunch more. This pack is recreating the sound from a PRS Paul’s amp head!

I have Googled around but I haven’t found that much info about the actual amp, but it is a pricey amp that seems to go for around $3000 (€2800). Judging from the profiles, it seems to be a versatile amp though and this pack holds up to ToneJunkies usual high standard. So, don’t expect metal tones but there are some nice high-gain profiles to be found.

In the pack you will get 21 studio profiles and 4 direct profiles, some of them boosted with either a Protein Drive or a Klone. All in all a good pack that I enjoyed demoing!
