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!!!
I was blown away by the profiles in Peter’s Crazy Profiles Mega Pack that were boosted by fuzz pedals. Blown away!! I know fuzz isn’t for everyone and sometimes it’s not even for me… but I found these profiles really inspiring and fun to just noodle around with. And isn’t that just what life should about – having fun! (I won’t put a questionmark after that,,,)
So, the pedals used in these profiles are Grim Face Fuzz, Klirrton Lichtbringer, EHX Big Muff, EHX Big Muff DeLuxe, Tubescreamer and TS808. In different combinations and with different amps, some with effects added but I have changed some of them in the video as well.
Hope it doesn’t get too fuzzy for you and that you’ll like the video! If you wanna support my channel please do subscribe. That’ll be very much appreciated! A huge round of applause to all you who already do subscribe – Thank You!!!
Well, this is the first time I do a video like this – I actually went through all the Kemper profile packs from ReampZone that are based on what you could call “metal amplifiers” and picked out my five favourites. And that is what this video is all about!
For each profil pack I have picked out two profiles, that I quickly demonstrate with two very different guitars; my Gibson Les Paul from 1976 – I don’t know what pickups are in this guitar, could be some old Seymour Duncans. And my latest Ibanez RGDIM6FM – equipped with Fishman Fluence Modern active pickups and tuned in D, this is a guitar designed for metal.
Speaking of which – YES, I do have problems playing palm-muted with this Ibanez as there seems to be some noise in the background as I’m doing so. I’m still not sure if it’s my technique lacking or what. Sorrty for that, maybe I just need to practise more. Or dampen the strings more effective as I’ve seen some modern metal players do.
And that is that! I hope you’ll enjoy the video – if you do feel free to support Have Guitar with a subscription! And to you who already do – Thanks!

Backing track by Have Guitar (Style: Hard rock/metal)
Wow, it has been a loooong time since I released a new backing track! So, here’s a new one – Big Thrills, in the style of 80’s metal. At least that is what I think it sounds like, if you have another opinion feel free to leave a comment!
There isn’t really that much to say about this track – it’s in the key of A (BPM: 130) and you can just solo over it with the penta. It’s not that tricky! I decided not to do a commented extra video for this one… just play and have fun! If you wanna use this backing track for your own videos go ahead. I’d appreciate if you leave a comment where you got it from – Have Guitar!
