Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

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! So this video will go out on a non-scheduled time (that is not a Thursday) dur to the fact below – please read it!

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! Right now Maxime Lajoie, the man behind Gold Lion Studio, got some bad news that his mother has been diagnosed with a terminal illness… any money he gets in will go directly to enable him to take a break and spend his limited time with his mother. 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.

And that’s it! Hope you liked the video – comments and likes are welcome but of course a subscription beats them both! And a Very Big Thank You to y’all who subscribes!!

Calling Dr Love by KISS (Guitar & Bass lesson)

Let’s Play by Have Guitar!

And now it’s time for a new guitar lesson, and actually bass lesson as well! As it was requested in another video, this is my take of KISS Calling Dr. Love. In this video you’ll get the whole package; rhythm guitars, bass lines and the solo part of the that song! This song is not overly complicated but if you like it, it’s fun to play never the less!

Just wanna say that my version of Calling Dr. Love, that you can find at the end of this video is a very simple recording! For the drums I usually take a midi file and use those drums with a VST instrument. In this case the midi version I found was not very good – it even started with a small drum solo… The guitars are just recorded once, I have not doubled them or anything like that. Still it works as a “blueprint” to practising. There is a version out on Youtube with almost only bass and drums that you can use if you want to – see the link further down.

Other than that I do not think this song requires any more detailed presentation. You might not like KISS and that is fine by me. People have lots of prejudices regarding the show and the makeup to this very day, which is kinda weired as every artist nowadays seems to have larger stage shows than KISS had in the 70’s. It’s a good stompin’ and hard driving rock tune, that’s all there is to it.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar! If you liked this guitar lesson why don’t you subscribe to my channel? The support will be very appreciated. And as in every video, a Very Big Thank YOU to all you who do subscribe. Could not do it without you!

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!

Well, this time I am not that late with the months pack from ToneCrate – so here’s the pack of May 2019! This time around there are two featured guitarists – Jack Daniels from War of Ages and Scott Carstairs from Fallujah. I am not that familiar with the bands but the pack contains more Kemper profiles and they are all good so thanks to ToneCrate and these guys for bringing this out to us!

The pack contains everything from clean to full out metal style profiles, quite well balanced I should say. I have tried to show that in this video and well, hope I succeeded in that.

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!

800 (2204) Pack by SinMix (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Time for a Kemper profile pack built on a classic amp – SinMix JCM 800/2204 from a Marshall JCM800 (Model 2204)! This is a big pack with both Studio as well as Direct profiles and with those numbers comes also variety. I’d say you have covered anything from pop to metal here and I have tried show that flexibility in this demo video.

The Marshall JCM800 was introduced in 1981 and the 2204 model has actually been available since 1975 – redesigned in ’81. The 2204 is a single-channel 50 watt amp and has been described as having the “brown sound”. Now… I suppose most guitarist to know what that means, so google it if you don’t know!

All in all I have to say this is a great pack, comes with that characteristic Marshall tone that all love (or hate?). The pack has been profiled with loads of different microphones and cab’s which of course brings along that variety in sound that I’ve already mentioned. Many thanks to SinMix for letting me do this demo – if you like what you hear support SinMix by buying the pack!

Hope you liked the demo and thanks for watching. Feel to support Have Guitar by subscribing, commenting and like the video – it’ll be much appreciated! A Very Big Thank You goes out to you who subscribes!!

Serenity Gain by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Time to take a look at a new profile pack from Live Ready Sound – Serenity Gain! This pack recreates the sound from a Mezzabarba Trinity amplifier – I must confess I had never heard about this brand before! But the Kemper profiles from Live Ready Sound rocks… as always!

So, the original amplifier is a handbuilt three channel 100 watts head. Seems to designed to handle whatever you want, from crystal clear to high gain Nirvana (that’s Mezzabarbas own words!). It’s midi programmable, can hold 48 different settings with 128 presets, FX loop and so. Packed with functonality for sure!

So this profile pack is already massive, counting over 200 profiles for your Kemper! Very cool, sounds great and well… just watch the demo. I hope you’ll dig this demo, feel free to support me with a subscription to Have Guitar! A massive Thanks goes out to all of you who already do!

By the way… I could not watch this video via Chromecast, very confusing! Let me know if anyone else experience similar problems.
