Purple Platypus Octidrive MKII Limited Edition by Way Huge/Jim Dunlop (Guitar effect pedal)

Another pedal frenzy from Have Guitar – let’s have a closer look at the Purple Platypus Octidrive MKII from Way Huge! So this pedal is based on the Way Huge Red Llama overdrive but with an added frequency doubler and a hi-cut-control that will let you fine tune your sound.

This pedal is limited to 1000 units but I really don’t know if that is a really small number of units when it comes to pedals… But, it isn’t listed at Way Huge webpage so that makes me guesstimate it’s a lesser production.

So what can you expect from this pedal? Well it’s basically a fuzz but with that doubler it’s kinda different from a any ordinary fuzz. When you hit the gas with this pedal you might notice that it doesn’t always handle multiple notes at the same time too well. Or maybe you’ll like that, who knows?! For me it’s not too useful on an everyday basis but you can get some really fat weird noises with it, that might have it’s place where you’re going.

That’s it, hope you liked this demo/review! If you wanna support my channel – subscribe! Anyways, thanks for watching!! A very sincere Thanks to all you who subscribes!!!

WZRD Pack by Selah Sounds (Kemper profiles demo)

WZRD Pack by Selah Sounds (Kemper profiles demo)

It’s been a long while since I featured any profiles from Selah Sounds but this is their WZRD Pack for the Kemper Profiling Amp! These profiles seeks to recreate the sound of a Wizard Wizard Modern Classic II amplifier.

The Wizard amps are handmade in Canada and used by artists like Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) and Lynyrd Skynyrd. According to Selah Sound this is amp reminds about a Marshall but “more percussive than compressed”. The amp features two channel, one is clean and the other one is of course lead/gain. The tone of these profiles are organic and warm, very nice to play to put it simply!

Read more about Wizard amps at the link below or if you fancy the profiles; follow the link to Selah Sounds webshop.

Fulltone OCD vs Tone City Dry Martini (Comparision / Blind test!)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

The master and the contender… maybe. So I have reviewed the Tone City Dry Martini, without comparing it to the pedal that it’s based on; the Fulltone OCD. I saved that for this video and after some thinking I decided to make it a blind test. Who doesn’t love a blind test?!! It’s scientific, fun and… well, a somewhat fair way to do an A/B-test.

I don’t think the Fulltone OCD needs a detailed introduction. It’s a classic overdrive pedal, available in many different versions and made in the USA. This pedal is said to have been sold in over 250000 units since it came around in late 2004. A sensitive overdrive, something that can create those overtones from a driven tube amplifier.

The Tone City Dry Martini is a smaller sized ‘clone’, made in China and cheaper than the OCD. It do have the same controls (Volume, Tone, Gain and a hi/low gain switch) but the spec’s are not excatly the same… and I do believe you can hear that – in my ears they do not sound the same. And that’s why I figured a blind test would be a good way to go about!

This way you can check out which sound you prefer, it might… or might not… surprize you. Let me know in the comments what you thought sounded the best! And did you get it right, pedal by pedal?
