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

And that’s it! Hope you liked the video and had some use of it… feel free to support my channel with a subscription! To all you who already do so – Thanks!!!

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

What’s this? A new Rig Showcase of course! Here’s the Sir PT One Hundred by Live Ready Sound – a pack that recreates the sound of a Suhr PT100 amplifier. An amp said to cover both Fender as well as Marshall typ sounds. The pack has, as I write this, already 6 updates out so if you can’t find something that suits your taste here I don’t know where you should look.

The original amp is a signature amp for guitarist Peter Thorn: “The Suhr PT100 Signature Edition features a 100 watt, three-channel tube amplifier head loaded with a custom “Plexi-style” output transformer, four EL-34 power tubes and six 12AX7 preamp tubes, a solid-state series/parallel effects loop, 4-button programmable footswitch.” Quote from Suhr’s information – for more take a look at Suhr’s webpage!

I wanna Thank Live Ready Sound for letting me do this Rig Showcase, had a good time time playing these sweet profiles. As I recorded I saved the profiles with the effects that I added and these has been sent back to LRS, who might add them to the official profile pack.

Sovtek Tube Midget 50H by Gold Lion Studios (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

It’s another Rig Showcase and this one is something I have been looking forward to do: Gold Lion Studios Sovtek Tube Midget 50H Ultimate Pack! Eventhough I have never owned one or even played one I’ve had a thing for the Sovtek amps. Don’t ask me why, but they have always seemed to be very cool in some way. Just the fact that they’re made in Russia makes them kinda unique…

So, if I have understood this correctly this model loosely based on a Marshall JCM800 and that it has a lot more gain than the other Sovtek 50 watter. All picked up from Google so don’t take my word for it. But this is a nice pack with its own character, if you like it get it!

And thanks for watching Have Guitar! Feel free to hit that subscribe button to support me… For all my subscribers I can only say Thank You!!

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Here’s a rig showcase for those of you who fancy an amp that’s made for metal – it’s Deadlight Studios (former Tonehammer) PIWI Perspective! Behind that acronym hides Peavey’s Invective 120 – as Peavey themselves puts it “helping players achieve the most revered metal sounds, from woody and clean to the most extreme of high gain tones”.

I’d say you don’t have to play metal to enjoy these sweet tones / profiles but the power is right there if you need it. This pack is in my ears very well profiled by Deadlight Studios, it was a joy to play through it while I did this video! So from my side it’s both thumbs up!! If you want more info on the amp see the links below as well as a link to the profile pack at Deadlight Studios. Go get it now, if you like what you hear!

So, thanks for watching Have Guitar! If you’re up for it, why don’t you subscribe? Doesn’t cost you a dime but it gives me the support I need to keep it up… A Big Fat Frantic Thanks goes out to all you who sub’s!!!

ReVerend G 120 Experiment by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

ReVerend G 120 Experimentby Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Let’s take a look… or rather a listen to Live Ready Sound’s The ReVerend G 120 – a profile pack for your Kemper Profiling Amp that recreates the sound from a Revv Generator 120 MKII!

The Revv Generator 120 is a 120 watts tube amp with 4 channels – clean, crunch and two variable gain channels. You can operate it at 10 or 120 watts, it has MIDI capabilities and each channel has a 3-band EQ. For more details on the actual amp see the link to Revv amps further down this description.

The profile pack from LRS so far contains 141 profiles, created with a bunch of speakers and microphones – it also contains 10 effects presets from Have Guitar, and that is what I based this Rig Showcase on. So you’ll get to hear the profiles as they come and then with my changes applied (and this FX addon is now included in the official pack). In addition the full pack also contains an additional 35 effects presets from Eltzejupp so yeah, you’ll have some fun going through this great pack!

ToneCrate December 2018 Jamie King Pack (Kemper profiles demo)

ToneCrate December 2018 Jamie King Pack (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Apparently the bonus Sundays continues! This is the December 2018 pack from ToneCrate and it’s a (mostly) heavy pack created together with the guitarist Jamie King! The pack contains 25 Kemper profiles all in all, most of them are high gain stuff but there are also a couple of bass profiles and some clear to crunch profiles here.

In my ears this is a great sounding pack that contains profiles from various amps like Marshall JCM800 & 900, Peavey 5150, Ampeg SVT and more.

ToneCrate is a subscription service where you will get a new profile pack for your Kemper every month and every month a new artist is featured. Pretty much like the “LootCrates” where you get a box sent home with different trinkets every month. It’s not that expensive (and if you pay for a year it’ll be cheaper) so go have a look at ToneCrates webpage for more information. Just wanna add I didn’t find much info on Kings bands when I Googled them, so I don’t know if my search-fu is bad perhaps…

Brown Eyed Girl by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Brown Eyed Girl by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Now wait a second, isn’t that a song by Van Morrison?! Well, yes it is… but it’s also ToneJunkie’s name of this profile pack for your Kemper… that recreates the sound of a Friedman BE-100. And yes, BE stands for Brown Eye.

So, this is not the first time I demo a profile pack created from that amplifier but like I say in the video, take the same amp and two different profilers and it will still differ in sound! The BE-100 is very competent amp, if you wanna read more about it just follow the link provided further down.

This pack definitely has the ToneJunkie tone in it, well balanced and varied profiles. Might be this is a less “heavy take” than some other profile packs of the BE100 and that really proves what I have already stated above… I hope you like this demo, feel free to support me with a subscription! To you subscribers out there, wherever you are – Thanks!

VX the Kraken by Official Victory Kemper Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)

VX the Kraken by Official Victory Kemper Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

So here it is – the last Sunday Special Rig Showcase of the official Victory Kemper profiles Rig Showcase! And last out is the heaviest of these official packs from Victory amps – VX the Kraken! The profiles are created by Rabea Massaad, if you haven’t heard of him check him out on Youtube – a great guitarist well worth following! He was also involved in designing the original amp.

VX the Kraken is small 50 watts amp with two channels; Gain I is classic British-inspired rhythm tones and Gain II is tight, aggressive American high-gain grind. The profiles contains clean to quite heavy sounds (though I must say I have heard harder and heavier sounds from the Kraken than what these profiles brings… possibly they can be tweaked more toward that sound if that is what you are looking for).

And there we have it! I do hope you liked this demo & thanks for watching Have Guitar! Support my channel by subscription – it’ll be much appreciated! To all old and new subscribers – Thank You, your support keeps me motivated!

Satch 410 Pack by Top Jimi Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)

Satch 410 Pack by Top Jimi Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Welcome to another Kemper Rig Showcase! By popular demand I give you a demo of Top Jimi’s Satch 410 Pack – a pack that recreates the sound of a Marshall JVM410HJS! What’s that?! Well, it the Joe Satriani signature head (100 watts)!

I don’t think Satriani needs an introduction but if you don’t know, take a look at his official webpage – link provided below. So obviously this is a collaboration between Satriani and Marshall and here’s a quote from Top Jimi’s webpage: “…the JVM410HJS takes the regular JVM410 to new sonic heights. The channels are each re-voiced to Joe’s specifications. With 3 distinct channels instead of 4, the 4th channel is a copy of channel 3 (overdrive) to allow two different overdrive settings for live use”.

So, that’s it now watch the video! I hope you like it and please do support me by subscribing to Have Guitar… I’m just a guy who loves guitars in general and you support means all! And as always – Thank You, to all of you subscribing already, I bow for you!

The Gentleman (MESHUGGAH amp) by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

The Gentleman (MESHUGGAH amp) by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Here’s a “bonus” Rig Showcase – Live Ready Sounds The Gentleman! Could it be that LRS is the first profiler to do the Fortin Meshuggah Signature amplifier? I think so! And it’s not only expensive (3333.33 USD!) it is also limited to 100 amps made. Ain’t that crazy?!

So I got a hands on tryout of the first release from LRS for this pack and what can I say? Love it. I have no idea how the profiles stands against the original amp as I’m likely to never even be in the same room as one, but the profiles have a great tone – it’s brutal, it’s metal, they djent – and much more! As I’m writing this the pack has not gone on sale yet but it should any day now.

Thanks for spending your time with Have Guitar, much appreciated! If you liked the video – feel free to subscribe to my channel, your support is needed! A Big Thanks goes out to all you subscribers – you rock!
