High End Fizz – rid it!

High End Fizz – rid it!
A video by Have Guitar

Here’s a little something that I for some reson don’t do too often in my videos – shaping the sound with the equalizer of the Kemper. But I do know a lot people writing about having problems with high gain and “fizz”, a disturbing bi-sound that makes your tones a lot less appealing than it could be. The fizz is often (perhaps even always!) located in the higher frequencies of the EQ-scale and it’s doesn’t really take magic to get rid of it.

So I thought a small video on this topic could be in place and this it. If you wanna skip to a particualr section here’s a (very small) index:

02:39 – Friedman BE100 with a Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019
06:42 – Victory Kraken with a Gibson SG Standard HP 2016

And that’s it! Hope you liked the video and had some use of it… feel free to support my channel with a subscription! To all you who already do so – Thanks!!!

Sir PT One Hundred by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

What’s this? A new Rig Showcase of course! Here’s the Sir PT One Hundred by Live Ready Sound – a pack that recreates the sound of a Suhr PT100 amplifier. An amp said to cover both Fender as well as Marshall typ sounds. The pack has, as I write this, already 6 updates out so if you can’t find something that suits your taste here I don’t know where you should look.

The original amp is a signature amp for guitarist Peter Thorn: “The Suhr PT100 Signature Edition features a 100 watt, three-channel tube amplifier head loaded with a custom “Plexi-style” output transformer, four EL-34 power tubes and six 12AX7 preamp tubes, a solid-state series/parallel effects loop, 4-button programmable footswitch.” Quote from Suhr’s information – for more take a look at Suhr’s webpage!

I wanna Thank Live Ready Sound for letting me do this Rig Showcase, had a good time time playing these sweet profiles. As I recorded I saved the profiles with the effects that I added and these has been sent back to LRS, who might add them to the official profile pack.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar – why don’t you go ahead and subscribe? The support will be much appreciated! If you already subscribe – Thanks!!!

Clean Gain Kemper Bundle by ToneCrate (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

It’s time for another Kemper Rig Showcase and here’s TonCrate’s Febuary Kemper bundle – Clean Gain! So previsously there has been a slight focus on the heavy stuff but here is the opposite just as the bundle name suggests. Here you will get a bunch of profiles on the low gain area, from clean to crunch I’d say.

As ToneCrate recommended I have added in the Electro Harmonix Soul Food overdrive. For those of you who don’t know about the Soul Food it’s practically a clone of the Klon Centaur – that means transparent overdrive. And what’s that? Well, I’d say it takes what you got soundwise and boosts that without too much coloration. It doesn’t mess around too much with EQ.

And that’s about it, hope you liked the video! Feel free to support my channel by a subscription… we’re closing in on 2000 sub’s, once that is reached there will be a (pedal) giveaway to celebrate. Thank you goes out to all the already subscribers!!

Sovtek Tube Midget 50H by Gold Lion Studios (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

It’s another Rig Showcase and this one is something I have been looking forward to do: Gold Lion Studios Sovtek Tube Midget 50H Ultimate Pack! Eventhough I have never owned one or even played one I’ve had a thing for the Sovtek amps. Don’t ask me why, but they have always seemed to be very cool in some way. Just the fact that they’re made in Russia makes them kinda unique…

So, if I have understood this correctly this model loosely based on a Marshall JCM800 and that it has a lot more gain than the other Sovtek 50 watter. All picked up from Google so don’t take my word for it. But this is a nice pack with its own character, if you like it get it!

Backing track by Have Guitar (Style: Hard rock/metal)

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!

These profiles recreates the sound from a Friedman BE-100 amplifier (see the link below), a hand-wired 100 watt amp that should and could do anything from blues to metal. As said in the video there’s a bunch of Kemper profile packs based on this amp – have a look at my Rig Showcase-playlists and you’ll find a bunch of demo’s from other profilers.

New Reverbs for the Kemper Profiling Amp (5.7.0.14092 Public Beta)

New Reverbs for the Kemper Profiling Amp (Kemper profiles demo)
Showcase by Have Guitar

Finally here – the new reverbs for the Kemper Profiling Amps! What kinda Kemperist would I be if I didn’t make a video of this?! So the old Reverbs goes into a new cathegory called Legacy Reverbs while we in return get some new one: Echo Reverb, Natural Reverb, Easy Reverb, Spring Reverb and Cirrus Reverb. All of them with their own characteristics. There is also one more called “Space” – according to the updated manual: “The Space effect is identical to the global version of Space in the Output Section. It produces the natural reflections of a small, neutral-sounding room.” Just didn’t make much of a difference to the sound in my ears so I decided to leave that out.

All in all this is great addon to the KPA – to get to keep the old Reverb possibilities and get a bunch of new one for free! Thank you, Kemper! So if you wanna hear anything specific – check out the index below. Appologies for the somewhat fuzzy close-ups of the KPA display – I will experiment some with the new action cam to see if I can improve on that. It takes baby steps to get better…

Index:
01:46 – Spring Reverb
03:44 – Natural Reverb
05:18 – Easy Reverb
07:09 – Echo Reverb
08:15 – Cirrus Reverb
10:14 – Conclusional ramblings

Top Cap Club Loyale by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Top Cap Club Loyale by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Welcome to what could be the first Rig Showcase from Have Guitar in 2019! (Not sure about the release order as I’m writing this…). So this is the Top Cap Club Royale from ToneJunkie – 30 studio and 6 direct profiles for your Kemper Profiling Amp – recreating the sound of a Top Hat Club Royale amp. What’s that? Well, I don’t know about you but I sure didn’t know anything about this amp before I tried out this pack. Gotta give the hat off to ToneJunkie for being able to pull out stuff like this from their magic hat! (Alright, enough hat jokes for now!!)

The amp is a 20 watt combo that comes as 1×12 or 2×12 and if you want more info there’s a link further down to Top Hat Amps webpage. This amp has it’s character and sound pretty good if ask me but the range would be from clean to classic rockand no further. As always it’s great to try out an amp I will probably never even be close to even if it’s in the profile shape. Hats off to ToneJunkie for that! (Oops, sorry… no more hat jokes from. Promise!)

And that’s about it! Hope you enjoy the video and feel free to push that subscribe button to give some much appreciated support to me and my channel! A big, fat Thanks to all you who subscribe, couldn’t keep it up without you!
