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.

God of War by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

God of War by Live Ready Sound (KRS Ares 50)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Time for a closer look at the God of War pack from Live Ready Sound. This is a pack that is based on a KRS Ares 50 amplifier and it brings a long 95 Kemper profiles (8 direct profiles), of course ranging from clear to gain dripping sounds. I’m pretty sure the pack will grow over time and there will surely be at least a couple more updates from Live Ready Sound.

The KRS Ares 50 seems to be a really versatile amp with lots of options through voice switching and much more. If you are interested take a look at the detailed description provided by KRS on their website. The link is of found further down in this description.

Vintage Overdrive by Harley Benton (Thomann) Pedal Test

Vintage Overdrive by Harley Benton (Thomann) Pedal Test
Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

Wow, it’s been way too long since I did a Pedal Frenzy (review) here! So this feature is now back AND in a revamped presentation. I do think this format is better, as it’ll show you in real time exactly what I’m doing with the pedals settings… and yeah, it is a long video and you might or might not like that. I however got tired of some pedal videos where you hardly get to hear the pedal so I set this up with two very different guitars and three different “amps” (Kemper profiles!); Fender Bassman, Revv 120 & the mighty PRS Archon. And I’ve also included an index so you can jump around as you please. In the video that is but sure if you wanna jump around whilst watching this video, go ahead!

I’ve had my eyes on the Harley Benton Vintage Overdrive for quite some time now, actually I heard a lot of good talk about it, from other guitarists. Gotta say after I had a go with it, I was pleasantly pleased with its performance. It’s cheap, it’s green and it’s a Tube Screamer clone – also well built for that sake! In my ears this low budget stomp box sounded much better than one might expect and well… I guess you just have to watch the video to hear it for yourself.

Shock Me by KISS (Guitar Lesson)

Shock Me by KISS (Guitar Lesson)
Let’s Play by Have Guitar!

Here’s a lesson on how to play the song “Shock Me” from KISS’ album Love Gun, released 1977. It’s a great song, not very complicated but since when has that been a prerequisite for good song? 🙂 The song was inspired by an accident that happened on stage 1976, Ace got electrocuted and the rest is Kisstory as they say.

The tuning on the song is a half step down, so when you see me taking an A chord, it’s actually in G sharp and so on. The rhythm parts are like they play on the record whilst the solo is close to but not perfectly like on the album. Like I say in the video, it’s not like Ace always played it live exactly like on the album either. So, if you wanna do it exactly like on the album this could be a good start but you’ll need to polish some details to get it “perfect”.

All guitars recorded with a Kemper Profiling Amp, the profiles comes from Live Ready Sound’s Plexed for Kemper pack, see link further down.

Index –
01:22 – Rhythm part explained with me playing the song
02:56 – Rhythm lesson, Main Riff
03:44 – Rhythm lesson, Verse

Gibson Explorer Vampire Blood Moon – Review & Test

Gibson Explorer Vampire Blood Moon – Review & Test
A review by Have Guitar!

They mostly come out at night… mostly… So the Gibson Explorer Vampire Blood Moon is obviously horror inspired, I guess it’s from all those teenage vampire flings that were so popular some years back. This model came out in 2011 and it was a limited run of 400 Blood Moons. Well, the name and the theme of this Explorer might put you off but the guitar itself is really good, plays well and those active Gibson pickups and sounds good with most styles… clean is no problem, add some gain and it responds well all the way up to brutal metal style sounds.

Allright so the Vampire Blood Moon has some features not so common for a stock Gibson Explorer… like the Gibson GEM active pickups and the Schaller Floyd Rose locking system that stands out. And then, as said, the theme of the guitar. Cough, cough…

So for this review I’ve used a slightly different technique than in my previous review videos. Rather than having me reading out all the specifications of the guitar, I’ve included the spec’s together with closeup clips of the Blood Moon during the sound examples. I really think that creates a better flow in the video and if you wanna read all the spec’s of the guitar take a visit at the link provided further down. Feel free to let me know in the comments if you like this new style!

Also note the sound demos are created playing through a Kemper Profiling Amp, unless otherwise stated it’s lined recordings (Kemper-SPDIF-Focusrite Saffire 6i6-Reaper) but I have included some examples described as “In the room” and that means the sound is recorded by microphones in the room, which pretty much sounds like what I am hearing while recording.

Index:
01:43 – ToneJunkie MatchC30 (Matchless amp), clean sound
02:25 – ReampZone Dumble ODS, mid gain
03:03 – TMS Profiles Marshall 6100, mid gain
03:40 – ReampZone Bogner Uberschall Twin Jet, high gain
04:07 – Live Ready Sound Eddied EL34 (5153), mid gain & volume test
06:12 – Blood Moon vs Explorer Tribute 2019 comparison starts
07:20 – BM Profiles F-man Pack (Friedman BE100), mid gain
07:59 – Mbritt Mini Nightmare (Driftwood), high gain
08:51 – Comparison conclusion
10:42 – ReampZone Diezel Einstein, high gain
11:25 – SinMix SplawnPM, high gain
11:57 – Guidorist Pvy JSX 2.0, high gain/backing track

And there we go! I hope you liked my review of the Gibson Explorer Vampire Blood Moon, if you wanna see more and support me feel free to subscribe to Have Guitar! A Big Fat Thanks to all you supporting me through your sub’s!!

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

ToneJunkie continues to deliver free goodies through their ProfileCrate service – here’s a rig showcase on their latest pack – Tangerine AD30! So, this is a smaller pack but is it provides some nice tones… The profiles recreates the sound of an Orange 30 watts amp.

In this video I have tried to show off the Kempers strength when it comes to alter the profiles original sound, both through the internal effects of the Kemper but also with a MXR Double Double Overdrive that I just acquired. If you haven’t already you should sign up for ToneJunkie’s Profilecrate – it is free and you will get free profile packs like this with no hustle.

And that’s it – hope you like the video! Feel free to support Have Guitar by subscribing – every sub counts! A really Big & Fat Thank You to all you who already subscribes!!

New Spring Reverb FX in the Kemper Profiling Amp (Beta preview)

New Spring Reverb FX in the Kemper Profiling Amp

Yup, that’s right if anyone missed the news… that isn’t that new really. But here’s me trying out the new Spring Reverb effect in the Kemper, based on the Fender Reverb Tank from 1963. And I must say it sounds great!

Should point out that this is a beta, a preview – I forgot to mention that in the video. So this is Profiler Operating System 5.6.2 Spring Reverb Preview that requires Rig Manager’s 2.1.25 revision. Beta’s are installed at your own perill…

Another interesting thing is that you can place this reverb anywhere in the FX chain; put it infront of the amp for a gritty, distorted sound or place it behind the amp for a clean stereo reverb.

And if you read this far – don’t miss out on the Mattfig Giveaway, I have three packs of Mattfig’s Trust Pack (four different packs of Kemper profiles) to giveaway. Today (28/6-2018) is the last day to join so if you wanna get a chance to win some free commercial profiles check out the link to that video below.

Official Mark Cameron Kemper profiles by SuckerFreeGear (Kemper profiles demo)

Official Mark Cameron Kemper profiles by SuckerFreeGear (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Back with another Rig Showcase and this time around I’m very happy to demo some official Mark Cameron Kemper profiles! A big thanks for letting me try out these profiles, I love them!

Just wanna clarify; I know I say “Cameron amps” in the video while actually meaning “amps modified by Cameron”.

So, I got to try out six of these profiles, all of them are Direct Kemper profiles so I have chosen a number of cabs already in my KPA and boy do we have some serious tone here! For the high gain profiles, which is a majority of these profiles, you will get a fat and tight tone that just kept me wanting to keep on playing! And for the one clean profile – well, it’s crystaline clear and it just sounds great!

There are loads more information on these profiles in the links further down so I’d recommend you take a look there.

Hope you liked the video! If so please support Have Guitars effort to bring fun guitar-related videos to quaff boredom by subscribing to the channel. A big thanks as always to all of you already subscribing, much appreciated!
