Rumble Drive Overdrive Pedal by Mooer (Pedal sound demo & review)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar

I’ve been aware and curious about the Mooer pedals since I tried their mini-wha, The Whater, a couple of years back (it was good!). All I know really is that it is a Chinese company – for me that doesn’t mean it has to be crap. Anyways, so I had a couple of giftcards at the local music store and I came back with 4 Mooer pedals, three of them I got at reduced price.

This video is about the Mooer Rumble Drive Overdrive pedal. Seems most of Mooer’s pedals are based on other wellknown pedals and I did find a webpage that lists them all (the link provided further down). The Rumble Drive is no exception – it’s based on the Hermida/Lovepedal Zendrive. I’ve never tried the Zendrive but I have read some good stuff about it.

And I can tell you; this little green metal box contains some magic tones! I was honestly impressed by the possibilities and the sounds that this pedal brings to the table. It just would not sound bad – especially when you keep volume control up. This one IS a keeper, no doubts about that – just listen to my demo/review of it and judge for yourself!

Here’s another Rig Showcase and in this video I’ll take a closer look at Gold Lion Studio’s Budda Superdrive 80! It’s a fine pack of Kemper profiles, the tone and the sustain of these profiles just rocks!

This pack contains both direct and merged profiles, the total number is 58 – and the pack IS on sale right now! If you like what you hear please do support GLS by buying this pack!

ToneJunkie has already contributed by giving a days sale to Maxime and I will persoanlly buy a couple of packs to support him. Be a fellow human and do the same.

Cam Modded Collection by Borg Factory (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Here’s a demo from another Kemper profile pack from Borg Factory – the Cam Modded Collection! This is a high gain pack with profiles taken from a couple of amplifiers that have been modded by a certain very well known amp modder. The amp’s are a Marshall 1976 JMP 100W that has the Ocean Mod, the other one is a Sovtek MIG-50 with the HG Jose mod. All studio profiles!

So, as said this is a pack of high gain stuff – well profiled from the original amps. Don’t take my word for it, listen to the demo and judge for yourself. Might add that while I am writing this the pack is on sale so if you like what you hear, go get it! The profilers are worth the support!

Thanks for watching Have Guitar, hope you liked this demo! A forever ongoing Thank You goes out to all of you who subscribe – your support is what makes it worth to continue making videos!

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!

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.

Randall Satan (120w) by ReampZone (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

It’s been awhile since I featured a profile pack from ReampZone so here’s the Randall Satan (120w) Kemper profile pack! The pack is packed (pun intended!) with fat metal tones but flexible enough for other styles as well. Contains both direct and studio profiles, some boosted with stomps like the Fortin 33 for an extra tight nice boost!

The Randall Satan is the signature amp of Ola Englund, comes in two variants (120 and 50 W). The 120W version comes with 2 channels and of course loaded with features… for more details, check the link to Randall Amplification provided below.

I hope I made this sweet pack from ReampZone justice and that you’ll like this demo. Feel free to support Have Guitar by a subscription! A bag of “thank yous” is handed out to you who subsscribe as always… you make it worthwhile to keep it up!

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.

Dark Matter by TC Electronics (Distortion pedal test / review)

Dark Matter by TC Electronics (Distortion pedal test / review)
Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar

Here’s another Pedal Frenzy where I take a look at TC Electronics Dark Matter, a distortion pedal for electric guitar. So, I didn’t really know much about this stomp when I ordered it from Thomann. I know the brand TC Electronics, since the mid 80’s but back then my impression was that it was a high-end quite expensive brand. Or was it me being poorer back then? I don’t really know but this pedal is not expensive!

I can say already that I was pleased by the sounds this pedal can pull off, the sound certainly is not cheap. So in this video I test it out with a bunch different Kemper profiles, trying to cover a wide range of amp styles and sounds to see how the Dark Matter affects the sound.

Yeah, it’s an epic video – considering it’s lenght! Is that a bad thing? I don’t know, I just prefer content over 2 minute videos. But… for your pleasure I have put in an index to the video below so you can jump to the part you wanna see.

Index:
02:09 – Live Ready Sound Tweed profile, low gain to crunch (gain 2/10)
06:33 – ReamZone Framus Dragon profile, clean sound with some delay (gain 0/10)
11:59 – BM Profiles Friedman BE 100 profile, quite high gain (gain 6/10)
16:04 – Pete’s Profiles Wizard profile, crunch sound (gain 3/10)
20:09 – ToneJunkie Matchless profile, clean sound (gain 0/10)
25:37 – Conclusion along with some rambling

Hey! I hope liked this video and if so please do subscribe! Doesn’t cost you a dime but gives me the support I need to carry on this craziness… As always a Very Big Thanks to all you who do sub – it’s just fantastic!

TMS RKR30 by TMS Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Here’s a video that features TMS Profiles new Kemper profile pack – RKR30 – recreating the sound of an Orange Rocker 30 head. This pack contain 40 Merged profiles that according to my opinion really captures that Orange sound – fat and creamy just like you should like it! And… I’ll throw in this video as a “bonus” as it’s also a giveaway! Watch the video to see how to enter – a very Big Thank You to TMS Profiles for letting me do this giveaway.

Deadline for the giveaway:
April 27th 2019, 23:59

Throwing in a footnote here that this is the first video that I have created/edited in Davinci Resolve, a video editing software that is available for free in a light version. It should not make any difference for you as a viewer and the reason for me changing software is that I am tired of seeing the Magix Movie Studio Platinum series not improving with the new versions. And also that I don’t wanna pay for those not so good new versions…

Thanks for watching Have Guitar and the support from you who subscribe is something which I am very grateful for! If you wanna support my little independent channel do subscribe, it’s free! 😉

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!!
