West Coast Killer by Live Ready Sound (Kemper Profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Something heavy coming your way… it’s the West Coast Killer by Live Ready Sound, a fat pack of Kemper profiles that recreates the sound from a Fortin Cali amplifier! As far as I know this is the latest amp model from Fortin and it features a clean channel, two overdrive channels and loads of other features – see the link below for more information on the actual amplifier.

This pack is massive with the pre-sell pack containing 145 profiles, it has since then recieved two updates with an additional 37 profiles – both studio and direct’s. The Cali is described as an extremely versatile amplifier and that is reflected in the profiles of course. The tone is like a modded Marshall with a twist and very aggressive.

So, in this video I went all Ibanez now when I have two of them. I just figured the Ibanez Destroyer and the D-tuned RGDIM6FM would match this pack fine. And they did, if I may say so.

So much for the description, hope you’ll like the video! Subscriptions, likes and comments are welcome… Thank You, to you who subscribe – the support is much appreciated!

Tony Iommi (TI) Boost by Laney Black Country Customs (pedal test)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

Here’s a pedal I have been looking forward to trying out, the Laney Black Country Customs TI Boost – where TI stand for Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath! So, this is a not a regular dist box but rather what is called a clean boost. It’s kinda a replica of what Iommi used in the early days of Sabbath but with some extra controls for gain, treble and base.

Just wanna say that I have used a slightly different approach in how I recorded this video… very much just improvising and noodling around as I try different settings on the pedal, I do hope it comes out OK. The editing of this video was cursed somehow… whatever could go wrong, went wrong! To a degree where I almost went ahead re-recorded it all over again. Just saying. Any comments – especially constructive critisim – is very welcome, I’m still experimenting on how to provide a nice overview of a pedal.

Anyways, I do hope you’ll like the video! And as in every video’s description I would like to say Thanks to you who subscribe, your support is awesome!

Gibson SG Government Series 1 (Guitar review)

Guitar review by Have Guitar!

I must confess I am blessed by having a friend who’s as guitar crazy as I am… if not this (and several other videos) would not have happend! So, he went about and bought two Gibsons from the Government Series 1 and this is the first review where I take a close look at the Gibson SG Government Series 1. A big Thanks to Klas for letting me try out these guitars!

All the details about this SG is in the video – that is, all the details that I could find! There isn’t that much information available actually… and to be honest, I wasn’t even aware about the the Government models until my buddy bought these. They are kinda rare as each model was produced in only 300 units, perhaps even less for some of the them. All models in the Series 1 goes in gray/black and there is also a Series 2 that goes in tan/brown and black. Another funny details about the Government Series 1 is that the cases goes in green and black!

So, hope you’ll like this video – I certainly enjoyed recording it. Just gonna mention that this video is in 24 FPS instead of the usual 50 FPS. Sorry for that but it’s kinda annoying in the new video editing software that I’m using (Davinci Resolve) that stuff like that should be set before editing any media – once you’ve added the media it cannot be changed, so it was a miss from side. Thanks goes out to all my subscribers!!

A note about the gain rating below; on the Kemper Profiling Amp each profile has a gain rating from 0 to 10. So Clean to Low gain = 0 – 3, Crunch = 4 – 6 and Hi gain = 7 – 10.

Index:
01:27 – Clean to low gain
(Pete’s Profiles – Wizard, Deadlight Studios – Piwi Perspective, BM Profiles – Fman, ToneJunkie – Bad Kitty Luke)
03:25 – Talk: head/neck etc
05:55 – Crunch

08:26 – Talk: playability, pickups etc
11:43 – Hi Gain

800 (2204) Pack by SinMix (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Time for a Kemper profile pack built on a classic amp – SinMix JCM 800/2204 from a Marshall JCM800 (Model 2204)! This is a big pack with both Studio as well as Direct profiles and with those numbers comes also variety. I’d say you have covered anything from pop to metal here and I have tried show that flexibility in this demo video.

The Marshall JCM800 was introduced in 1981 and the 2204 model has actually been available since 1975 – redesigned in ’81. The 2204 is a single-channel 50 watt amp and has been described as having the “brown sound”. Now… I suppose most guitarist to know what that means, so google it if you don’t know!

All in all I have to say this is a great pack, comes with that characteristic Marshall tone that all love (or hate?). The pack has been profiled with loads of different microphones and cab’s which of course brings along that variety in sound that I’ve already mentioned. Many thanks to SinMix for letting me do this demo – if you like what you hear support SinMix by buying the pack!

Hope you liked the demo and thanks for watching. Feel to support Have Guitar by subscribing, commenting and like the video – it’ll be much appreciated! A Very Big Thank You goes out to you who subscribes!!

Serenity Gain by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Time to take a look at a new profile pack from Live Ready Sound – Serenity Gain! This pack recreates the sound from a Mezzabarba Trinity amplifier – I must confess I had never heard about this brand before! But the Kemper profiles from Live Ready Sound rocks… as always!

So, the original amplifier is a handbuilt three channel 100 watts head. Seems to designed to handle whatever you want, from crystal clear to high gain Nirvana (that’s Mezzabarbas own words!). It’s midi programmable, can hold 48 different settings with 128 presets, FX loop and so. Packed with functonality for sure!

So this profile pack is already massive, counting over 200 profiles for your Kemper! Very cool, sounds great and well… just watch the demo. I hope you’ll dig this demo, feel free to support me with a subscription to Have Guitar! A massive Thanks goes out to all of you who already do!

By the way… I could not watch this video via Chromecast, very confusing! Let me know if anyone else experience similar problems.

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

March 2019 Dan Sugerman by ToneCrate (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

A new month and a new pack from ToneCrate – this time it’s Dan Sugarman (As Blood Runs Black) who is the featured signature artist. This pack contains a bunch of profiles tweaked by him and those are the profiles demoed in this video… of course! The style is quite varied with some of the profiles quite effects heavy. All in all some good tones are to be found here.

For those of you who are not familiar with the ToneCrate concept; it’s a subscription service where you get a new pack of Kemper profiles each month. Pretty much like for example the loot crates you can subscribe to but here you get profiles instead. Pretty fun and interesting and not too expensive so why not join in? I believe the concept of having a signature artist tweaking the sound is really great and a way to insure you will get a personal touch in each package.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar! and I do hope you liked the video! Feel free to subscribe to support my channel, that will be appreciated. For all subscribers – Thanks!!
