Fulltone OCD Overdrive (Stomp pedal test)

Fulltone OCD Overdrive (Stomp pedal test)
Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar

It’s time to take a closer look at the Fulltone OCD, is there any guitarist that haven’t heard about this pedal? It should “replicates the dynamics and harmonics of a fully-wound tube amplifier with its typical output stage distortion” and I’ve seen it described both as an overdrive and a distortion effect. I guess it has the characteristics of both.

I guess the Fulltone OCD doesn’t need any closer introduction, it’s a classic pedal and for more info check out the link to Fulltone’s webpage provided below. I’ll add a link to a fantastic video from ToneJunkie that compares all the different versions of the OCD, go see it – it’s really worth the time watching it.

Hope you liked this video – feel free to give me some support by subscribing! And you know what comes next… that’s right, a Fat Big Thanks to all you who do sub!!

Top Cap Club Loyale by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Top Cap Club Loyale by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Welcome to what could be the first Rig Showcase from Have Guitar in 2019! (Not sure about the release order as I’m writing this…). So this is the Top Cap Club Royale from ToneJunkie – 30 studio and 6 direct profiles for your Kemper Profiling Amp – recreating the sound of a Top Hat Club Royale amp. What’s that? Well, I don’t know about you but I sure didn’t know anything about this amp before I tried out this pack. Gotta give the hat off to ToneJunkie for being able to pull out stuff like this from their magic hat! (Alright, enough hat jokes for now!!)

The amp is a 20 watt combo that comes as 1×12 or 2×12 and if you want more info there’s a link further down to Top Hat Amps webpage. This amp has it’s character and sound pretty good if ask me but the range would be from clean to classic rockand no further. As always it’s great to try out an amp I will probably never even be close to even if it’s in the profile shape. Hats off to ToneJunkie for that! (Oops, sorry… no more hat jokes from. Promise!)

And that’s about it! Hope you enjoy the video and feel free to push that subscribe button to give some much appreciated support to me and my channel! A big, fat Thanks to all you who subscribe, couldn’t keep it up without you!

Kemper through the Katana FX Loop – test!

Kemper through the Katana FX Loop – test!
…by Have Guitar

Might be this video is slightly overdue but now it’s here. As you might know I already did a video where I test running the Kemper through the Boss Katana, using the aucoustic channel on the Katana and hooking up the KPA straight into the front of the amp. And back then I promised to do a similar test but with the Kemper through the Katanas effects loop and this is it!

In this video you will get the following examples for the four different profiles that I tested out:

* Recorded straight into Reaper (Kemper-SPDIF-Soundcard-Reaper)
* Kemper through my studio monitors, Event ASP8
* Kemper through the Katanas FX loop; Cab on and Cab character set to 0.0
* Kemper through the Katanas FX loop; Cab on and Cab character set to -5.0
* Kemper through the Katanas FX loop; Cab off

I was a bit surprised that the last test did not work that well, sounded a bit harsh to me… I’m open for suggestions if I maybe did some mistake there so feel free to lecture me. Otherwise I still feel it sounds good. So the Katana is not a real FRFR speaker and I’m pretty sure one of those will do the jobb even better. But, then we have the price factor! A Katana costs around 1/3 of a FRFR solution and considering that, well I think it performs pretty darn good as an inexpensive solution. Also as I stated in the video, if the Kemper would fail you – the you have a backup right there in the Boss Katana as that works well on its own.

I do hope you liked the video – support my channel by subscription for more and better videos! To all you who subscribes – Thank You!

Rob Maramonte (November 2018) by ToneCrate (Kemper profiles demo)

Rob Maramonte (November 2018) by ToneCrate (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Disclaimer: October or November? Slightly confusing here, but Rob is listed as the October featured artist and the pack arrived early November. So from now on I will list it as when it arrives = this IS the November pack. For me at least.

Time for a new surprize pack from ToneCrate and this month its tweaked by Rob Maramonte from The Zenith Passage. It’s 9 really heavy profiles (and one clean!) and so far this is my favourite from ToneCrate!

So, the amps included here is Peavey Triple X, EVH 5150 III, Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier, Peavey 5150, Marshall JCM 800 and Bogner Uberschall. As said, most of the sounds are hard and heavy except one clean tone. It’s good…

Hope you like the demo – hit that sub-button to support Have Guitar! A never-ending Thanks goes out to all you who sub!!

God of War by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

God of War by Live Ready Sound (KRS Ares 50)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Time for a closer look at the God of War pack from Live Ready Sound. This is a pack that is based on a KRS Ares 50 amplifier and it brings a long 95 Kemper profiles (8 direct profiles), of course ranging from clear to gain dripping sounds. I’m pretty sure the pack will grow over time and there will surely be at least a couple more updates from Live Ready Sound.

The KRS Ares 50 seems to be a really versatile amp with lots of options through voice switching and much more. If you are interested take a look at the detailed description provided by KRS on their website. The link is of found further down in this description.

As usual I do hope you enjoyed the video! Feel free to support Have Guitar by subscribing to the channel – it’s free for you and gives me the support I need. To all you who sub – Thanks, couldn’t do it without You!

V40 Deluxe Pack by Victory Amps (Kemper profiles demo)

V40 Deluxe Pack by Victory Amps (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Here a new Kemper Rig Showcase – welcome! So, Victory Amps got Rebea Massaad to make them some official Kemper profiles packs, that is a stroke of genius if you ask me. This is a typical example of creative thinking that will allow you to stay in business by adopting to the changes that will occur. I’m kinda surprised noone has cracked this idea before, but I guess someone has to be first!

So, I figured I’d do a mini series that will “air” on sundays here at Have Guitar and first out is the V40 Deluxe, an amp for the “feel players” as Victory puts it. Sure is no gain monster and it’s described as “expect classic American cleans through to pushed tweedy grit and on to driven British blues-rock” which I think is about right.

In the video I mention a bit about the dark character of the profiles. After this session I hooked up my Kemper to the Boss Katana and I must say that gave a different sound. So, that is not included here but will most likely be in the coming Victory videos!

Shock Me by KISS (Guitar Lesson)

Shock Me by KISS (Guitar Lesson)
Let’s Play by Have Guitar!

Here’s a lesson on how to play the song “Shock Me” from KISS’ album Love Gun, released 1977. It’s a great song, not very complicated but since when has that been a prerequisite for good song? 🙂 The song was inspired by an accident that happened on stage 1976, Ace got electrocuted and the rest is Kisstory as they say.

The tuning on the song is a half step down, so when you see me taking an A chord, it’s actually in G sharp and so on. The rhythm parts are like they play on the record whilst the solo is close to but not perfectly like on the album. Like I say in the video, it’s not like Ace always played it live exactly like on the album either. So, if you wanna do it exactly like on the album this could be a good start but you’ll need to polish some details to get it “perfect”.

All guitars recorded with a Kemper Profiling Amp, the profiles comes from Live Ready Sound’s Plexed for Kemper pack, see link further down.
