Marshall DSL20H – Test & Review!

Marshall DSL20H – Test & Review!
…by Have Guitar

In this video we’ll take an extensive look at the Marshall DSL20H tube amplifier – can you get a better tube amplifier in this price range?! This little head can do most styles and let have a look at the spec’s:

2 Channels (Classic gain and Ultra gain)
20W switchable to 10W
Outputs: 3 x 1/4″ (16/8 Ohm load) + 1 x 1.35 mm jack emulated line out
Inputs: 1 x 1/4″ instrument jack, 1 x 1,35 mm jack aux in, footswitch
FX Loop w Send/Return
Digital Reverb built-in
Preamp valves: 3 x ECC83
Power amp valves: 2 x EL34
Weight: 9.7 kg / 21 lbs

So this is small and light, can go from close to clean to screaming gain, has loads of EQ options and can be bought brand new for less than 390 euros / 440 USD. I was totally impressed by this little power pack and would not mind getting one myself.

Would also like to throw in that this was the first time we recorded at this location, the light was worse than I though so next time I’ll bring my studio lights. Also the sound is picked up as we hear it in the room but, next time I think still I should place the microphones close to the speaker.

ToneCrate December 2018 Jamie King Pack (Kemper profiles demo)

ToneCrate December 2018 Jamie King Pack (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Apparently the bonus Sundays continues! This is the December 2018 pack from ToneCrate and it’s a (mostly) heavy pack created together with the guitarist Jamie King! The pack contains 25 Kemper profiles all in all, most of them are high gain stuff but there are also a couple of bass profiles and some clear to crunch profiles here.

In my ears this is a great sounding pack that contains profiles from various amps like Marshall JCM800 & 900, Peavey 5150, Ampeg SVT and more.

ToneCrate is a subscription service where you will get a new profile pack for your Kemper every month and every month a new artist is featured. Pretty much like the “LootCrates” where you get a box sent home with different trinkets every month. It’s not that expensive (and if you pay for a year it’ll be cheaper) so go have a look at ToneCrates webpage for more information. Just wanna add I didn’t find much info on Kings bands when I Googled them, so I don’t know if my search-fu is bad perhaps…

Equipment used:
Schecter Custom E-1 Special Edition VSB (Schecter USA Sunset Strip/Schecter USA Pasadena)
Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019 (Dirty Fingers+)

Now wait a second, isn’t that a song by Van Morrison?! Well, yes it is… but it’s also ToneJunkie’s name of this profile pack for your Kemper… that recreates the sound of a Friedman BE-100. And yes, BE stands for Brown Eye.

So, this is not the first time I demo a profile pack created from that amplifier but like I say in the video, take the same amp and two different profilers and it will still differ in sound! The BE-100 is very competent amp, if you wanna read more about it just follow the link provided further down.

This pack definitely has the ToneJunkie tone in it, well balanced and varied profiles. Might be this is a less “heavy take” than some other profile packs of the BE100 and that really proves what I have already stated above… I hope you like this demo, feel free to support me with a subscription! To you subscribers out there, wherever you are – Thanks!

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

So here it is – the last Sunday Special Rig Showcase of the official Victory Kemper profiles Rig Showcase! And last out is the heaviest of these official packs from Victory amps – VX the Kraken! The profiles are created by Rabea Massaad, if you haven’t heard of him check him out on Youtube – a great guitarist well worth following! He was also involved in designing the original amp.

VX the Kraken is small 50 watts amp with two channels; Gain I is classic British-inspired rhythm tones and Gain II is tight, aggressive American high-gain grind. The profiles contains clean to quite heavy sounds (though I must say I have heard harder and heavier sounds from the Kraken than what these profiles brings… possibly they can be tweaked more toward that sound if that is what you are looking for).

And there we have it! I do hope you liked this demo & thanks for watching Have Guitar! Support my channel by subscription – it’ll be much appreciated! To all old and new subscribers – Thank You, your support keeps me motivated!

Satch 410 Pack by Top Jimi Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)

Satch 410 Pack by Top Jimi Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Welcome to another Kemper Rig Showcase! By popular demand I give you a demo of Top Jimi’s Satch 410 Pack – a pack that recreates the sound of a Marshall JVM410HJS! What’s that?! Well, it the Joe Satriani signature head (100 watts)!

I don’t think Satriani needs an introduction but if you don’t know, take a look at his official webpage – link provided below. So obviously this is a collaboration between Satriani and Marshall and here’s a quote from Top Jimi’s webpage: “…the JVM410HJS takes the regular JVM410 to new sonic heights. The channels are each re-voiced to Joe’s specifications. With 3 distinct channels instead of 4, the 4th channel is a copy of channel 3 (overdrive) to allow two different overdrive settings for live use”.

So, that’s it now watch the video! I hope you like it and please do support me by subscribing to Have Guitar… I’m just a guy who loves guitars in general and you support means all! And as always – Thank You, to all of you subscribing already, I bow for you!

The Gentleman (MESHUGGAH amp) by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

The Gentleman (MESHUGGAH amp) by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Here’s a “bonus” Rig Showcase – Live Ready Sounds The Gentleman! Could it be that LRS is the first profiler to do the Fortin Meshuggah Signature amplifier? I think so! And it’s not only expensive (3333.33 USD!) it is also limited to 100 amps made. Ain’t that crazy?!

So I got a hands on tryout of the first release from LRS for this pack and what can I say? Love it. I have no idea how the profiles stands against the original amp as I’m likely to never even be in the same room as one, but the profiles have a great tone – it’s brutal, it’s metal, they djent – and much more! As I’m writing this the pack has not gone on sale yet but it should any day now.

Thanks for spending your time with Have Guitar, much appreciated! If you liked the video – feel free to subscribe to my channel, your support is needed! A Big Thanks goes out to all you subscribers – you rock!

V130 The Super Countess by Victory Amps / Rabea Massaad (Kemper profiles demo)

V130 The Super Countess by Victory Amps / Rabea Massaad (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

So here is the 4th Kemper Rig Showcase Special and it’s the V130 The Super Countess from Victory Amps! You know it by now, it’s official Kemper profiles from this amp manufacturer and that is worth checking out… and worth supporting.

The original amp is 100 watts (so say “Thanks Kemper for saving my hearing”!), it comes from the V30 but has some characteristics of the V40, The Sheriff 44 & VX The Kraken. Still, to me it sounds like a “nice” amp and not that mean… good base tone though.

Thanks for watching my videos – if you like it you might wanna consider subscribing to Have Guitar, your support IS appreciated! And as always a Huge Thanks to you who subscribes – you rock!

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!
