Boss Katana & Effect Pedals

Boss Katana & Effect Pedals from Have Guitar!

Finally an answer to a question that has been plaguing savvy Internet guitarists since the Boss Katana was released: how does the Katana take pedals? And here is the answer: as any other guitar amplifier. But. If that is not enough for you – ye of doubtful minds – then watch this video.

So yes, in this video I have selected a few gain pedals from my vast collection (read; four out of five pedals) – EHX Green Russian Big Muff (Fuzz) & Soul Food (transparent overdrive), Suhr Riot (Distortion) and the MXR Zakk Wylde Berzerker (Overdrive). They go into the front of the Boss Katana, which is setup with a “sneaky amp”: Clean Twin. And then… noodling is on. Anyways, if you are interesting in a particular pedal here’s a small index for you:

Index:
03:32 – Clean Twin w/o pedals as a reference
03:53 – EHX Green Russian Big Muff
05:16 – MXR Zakk Wylde Berzerker
06:27 – EHX Soul Food
08:33 – Suhr Riot

HG-6 Distortion Pedal from NUX (stomp box demo) by Have Guitar!

HG-6 Distortion Pedal from NUX (stomp box demo) by Have Guitar!
Pedal Frenzy from Have Guitar!

It’s Saturday nite special bonus bonanza Pedal Frenzy from Have Guitar!

Looking for a cheap distortion stomp box? Well, maybe you should just turn your head in another direction then. No, I got some descent sounds out from this NUX HG-6 distortion pedal but it sure did not go well with the Kemper.

And the HG-6 is cheap, I got it for around 20 Euros (24.6 USD) from China and be sure not to pay a penny more than that! It has some features that sounds promising like true bybass, analogue circuits and Tube simulation… and as said, it is not completely useless unless you have a Kemper – in that case I would rather recommend you to use the Kempers internal effects. but anyways, it’s red and you might have a chance of winning this pedal in the future so look out!

I do hope that you liked this video and if you do – pretty please subscribe to my channel, to support me. More Sub’s open up the possibilities for more varied videos on Have Guitar! To each and every one already subscribing – Thank You, the support is very much appreciated!

Kemper Rig Showcase from Have Guitar!

It’s … Have Guitars Kemper Rig Showcase and I’m veeeeery happy to demo a new pack from Live Ready Sound – Plexed For Kemper. A first batch of Kemper profiles taken from a Marshall “Plexi” that captures the essence of that classic amp in a very convincing way.

I’d say there is good variation in this pack, it includes a bunch of tonal options and they all sound very organic and transparent. This pack has its definitive place in every Marshall-loving Kemper-owners collection!

Kemper Rig Showcase: Mbritt / 3rd Power 3P CSR Pack

Have Guitar! is back with a new Kemper Rig Showcase – this time I’m happy to be able to present the Mbritt / 3rd Power 3P CSR Pack! It’s a co-operation between Michael Britt and 3rd Power amplification, and yes – it’s another amp manufacturer who now offers Kemper profiles from their own amps. A very nice initiative if you ask for my opinion!

In this rig pack you will get 60 studio profiles created from the original Citizen Gain CSR prototype unit. These Kemper profiles really cover a wide range of tonal possibilities or as Mbritt states in his information sheet “everything from vintage plexi all the way to 800 land”. For myself, I was highly impressed by this pack, from the variation of the profiles to the tonal qualities they bring to the table. So, have a listen to my demo then just head on out and buy this pack already!

Hope you liked the video! If so please support Have Guitars effort to bring fun guitar-related videos to quaff boredom by subscribing to the channel. A big thanks as always to all of you already subscribing, very much appreciated!

Kemper Rig Showcase: Live Ready Sound’s – 6160 Platinum Modded pack

Have Guitar is franticaly excited to present a new Kemper Rig Showcase – Live Ready Sound’s 6160 Platinum Modded pack! Live Ready Sounds offers, as allways, a big number of profiles with many sonic variations. If you can’t find a sound you like in this pack I have no idea where you should look elsewhere… These profiles recreates the sound of a Peavey 5150 Block Letter Head Platinum Modded by Voodoo Amps and they do it in style!

The Peavey 5150 was the signature model for Eddie Van Halen, til he parted ways with Peavey so nowadays this model is called Peavey 6505. This amp is well known for its high gain capabilities but it does not only handle metal but softer blues and rock tones as well. For more details, see the wikipedia-link further down.

Hope you liked the video! If you do please subscribe to Have Guitar and feel free to like, comment and share the video… if you don’t well… why not? Thanks for all the new sub’s – over 400 now, that is just amazing. So thanks again to all new and old subscribers for the support!!!

Pedal Frenzy! Neunaber Immerse Reverberator

Have Guitar! is happy to present to you the stomp of the month, the pedal frenzy of Neunaber Immerse Reverberator! This pedal is designed to give you the best of the reverbs from the Neunaber Expanse and there’s some very nice reverbs coming out from this lil’ box. You will get no less than eight effects here: Wet, Hall, Plate, Spring, two “Shimmers”, wet+echo and wet+detune – where the last one is like a really sweet chrous effect.

(And Yes! I did add stills of the pedal eventhough I said wouldn’t… )

The Neunaber Immerse will give you a host great sounding reverb effects and as seen above you will get a delay and a chorus effect to add to that. The pedal has also tow additional switches; Kill Dry (where you only will hear the wet signal, the reverb so to speak) and Trails (where activated the reverb continues when you turn off the pedal). All in all – good sounding reverbs, a couple of extra effects and many many option to tweak the sound that you are after. Now… hit play on that video!

Hey! If you like the video… please do subscribe to Have Guitar! It’s just a click on the sub-button but every sub helps the channel to grow, which means more chances I will be able to do more guitar releated videos… so I hope you liked it! Thanks to all you who already subscribe!!
