Rig Showcase: ReampZones Engl Savage 120

Have Guitar is happy to be able to present – pictures at an exhibition! No, wait, that’s not it… ah, yes – ReampZones Engl Savage 120! Oh metal, you think but think again! This is a really flexible profiles pack for your Kemper, containing profiles that sweep from clean to raw gain and anything between. Or as ReampZone says it on their webpage: “A highly versatile 120 high gain monster with a fantastic natural tight bottom end , this head can do it all from crisp cleans to blazing metal at the tip of your fingers.” I could not agree more!

In this Rig Showcase from Have Guitar you will get a varied selection from these profiles – mostly lined recording but also some samples from live in the room. For a couple of these Kemper profiles I’ll be adding delay and the infamous transpose effect but otherwise all profiles are dislayed as they come when you buy this pack (that contains 53 Direct Profiles and 28 Studio Profiles for your KPA). Also included are some backing track demo’s so who can hear the profiles “in the mix”.

Guitars used in this rig showcase: Gibson Les Paul 1976, Harley Benton TE-70 Black Paisley (with Fender Texas Specials pickups), Fender Stratocaster (Shawbucker) and an ESP Phoenix II.

Test/Review: Gravity Picks

It’s easter and by that time for a new video from Have Guitar: a test of the Gravity picks! If you’ve ever seen these picks you know they are an eye catcher, allmost luminous in the design. I decided to get a pack and try them out and that’s just what this video is about.

The Gravity guitar picks are handmade and comes in many colors and designs. For me, considering that the guitar pick is the connection between you and your guitar, the guitar pick is small but important piece of equipment. It’s always fun and interesting to try out new stuff because you never know how it’ll affect your playing.

Also in the video – a small ‘sound test’ where you can see if you can hear any difference of the picks being used… can you pick 5 out 5 picks?!

The profile (RZ_87JCM800_S09) used for the ‘test’ is from ReampZones Marshall JCM 800 Lead Series

Rig Showcase: ReampZones Marshall 2555X Silver Jubilee

Have Guitar is proud to present a Kemper Rig Showcase for ReampZone’s Marshall 2555X Silver Jubilee. In this rig pack you will get 29 Direct profiles and 33 Studio profiles with gain from 0 to 8. The profiles in this pack really reflect the original amp, that was redesigned for more tonal flexibility than (at the time) the previous Marshall amps.

As Marshall puts it on their webpage for this amp: “The Bass, Middle, Treble & Presence controls, although shared between channels, were re-designed and offered more tonal variation than any other Marshall product had before.” My opinion is that there are some really sweet tones to be found in this pack and well, it certainly sounds like a Marshall should!

In this Kemper Rig Showcase I will demonstrate a selection of these fine profiles, the examples will be mainly lined recordings but I included a couple of “live in the room” samples for comparisons sake. I’ve also included some samples where the profiles are used together with backing tracks, a good way to showcase how they work in the mix.

Guitars used in this Rig Showcase: Gibson Les Paul ’76, Gibson Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S., ESP Phoenix II and Harley Benton TE-70 Black Paisley – a good selection of guitars with very different sounds for a wider aspect of how these profiles sounds.

I hope you like this video from Have Guitar as much as I enjoyed playing with this fantastic pack from ReampZone… if you like it, please consider subscribing to the channel – it’s just a click on the subscribe button for you but it will support the channel and enable more videos.

Rig Exchange Recommendation: Joptunes Marshall JTM50 Black Flag

Have Guitar! is happy to present a new feature on the channel: The Rig Exchange Recommendations! In this first REXR we have a very nice Marshall JTM50 Black Flag from Joptunes. I’ve been looking awhile for commercial profiles pack of the Marshall JTM50 but have only found the Marshall JTM45… the difference might not be that big but when you know what you want… anyways, so I found this on the official Kemper forums and well, then the idea of this feature was born.

In this video Have Guitar will demo the Marshall JTM50 Black Flag with both lined and live in the room examples. Guitars used: Gibson SG Standard High Performance, Harley Benton Black Paisley (Fender Texas Specials) and a Fender American Standard Stratocaster (Shawbucker).

Many thanks to Joptunes for sharing these excellent profiles for free on the Kemper Rig Exchange – thank you, sir!

I hope you like the video… and if you do, please subscribe to the channel to support it! Thanks to all of you who allready subscribed!!

Rig Showcase: Top Jimis Stevens 100 Pack

Have Guitar proudly presents a Rig Showcase for Top Jimis Stevens 100 Pack. A rig pack loaded with 20 Studio Profiles for your Kemper Profiling Amp. These profiles recreates the sound of the Friedman SS100, Steve Stevens signature model amp. For my part, I fell for this pack directly when I heard the demo at Top Jimis web page; I just had to get it and so I did! To me these profiles have a really nice character and a great sounding tone in them, but don’t take my word for it – listen to this Rig Showcase right now and make your own opinion.

In this Rig Showcase I will be using four different guitars to demo these profiles: Gibson Les Paul 1976, Gibson Ace Frehley Budokan Les Paul Custom VOS, ESP Phoenix II and the infamous Harley Benton Black Paisley (with Fender Texas Specials pickups). All in all a great set of electric guitars to provide very broad perspective of how these Kemper profiles actually sound. Most, if not all, of the sound examples will be lined recordings so you’ll know what it will sound like if you get this pack (and I think that you should…!).

This is what Friedman themselves write about the original amplifier:
“The SS100 is a 100-watt EL34 powered, two channel plus BOOST, high gain tone machine that is capable of producing many styles of music from blues to classic rock and from heavy rock to metal by simply adjusting the gain and master controls. Likewise the versatile and gorgeous clean channel is great for a whole palette of styles.

You will notice instantly, the tight bottom end and rich harmonically detailed chords and single notes. This amp cleans up remarkably well with the guitar’s volume control, even with the amp on higher gain settings. ”

And of course, I will do just that – rolling off the volume to show you how Top Jimis profiles handles that through the Kemper.

Test/review: Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S.

Have Guitar proudly presents a review video of the Gibson Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S. – a guitar you won’t find every day as it’s a limited edition model. Now matter if you like Ace Frehley or not this is one fine Les Paul Custom, there is no doubt about that. The Budokan Les Paul Custom V.O.S. was manufactured in a stricly limited edition of 50 hand-aged (reliced) and signed by Ace Frehley, 100 hand-aged/reliced and 150 guitars treated in Gibson Customs VOS process (Vintage Original Specification).

According to Gibson “the Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom is a painstaking recreation of Frehley’s modified Les Paul Custom, based on intimate examination of the instrument’s current condition.” Well, I can tell you with that Dimarzio Super Distortion pickup you will get that sound that you can hear in the live videos from the mid seventies when KISS performs live.

In this video Have Guitar will showcase the Gibson Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S. in 4K video and of course there will be sound examples both live in the room as well as lined recordings. Something that I personally really like about this Les Paul is that it’s a real signature model, in that aspect that it’s an authentic replica of a vintage Gibson Les Paul Custom. It’s not like “the 300” signature model that was released in 1997, that had Ace Frehley’s makeup on the headstock – sure they are also a limited run and probably highly collectable but it’s not a guitar that is historically correct in that aspect. The Budokan Les Paul is much more the real deal according to me and whilst this is not my guitar I can tell ya – I would love to own one…

And that’s it! I hope you like the showcase of this Gibson Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S. – a very big thanks to Klas, who was so generous as to lend me this rare Les Paul – that is very much appriciated!!! I never thought I would even get close to one of these but thanks to him I did… so if you liked the video, there’s more where that came from!

Guitar Backing Track in A – Blues rock in 80 BPM (commented)

Here’s the 5th backing track from Have Guitar – a slow blues rock track. This is the version where I comment the backing track, as was requested in a previous backing track. But I have uploaded another version without commentary for those of you who prefer that.

This is a slow blues rock tune in the key of A, there’s just that and nothing fancy pancy or weird about it. The title is creative enough “Blue Rock” and the tempo is 80 BPM.

So, I hope you like this backing track from Have Guitar! And if you do, please do subscribe – there’s plenty more to watch from where this came and a subscription will give good support for the channel!
