Martian 2000 by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

Time to test out a new profile pack from Live Ready Sound – Martian 2000! This pack recreates the sound from a Marshall DSL100 JCM2000 and yes, it keeps the usual high standards we’re used to see from Live Ready Sound!

The first version of this pack comes with 57 studio profiles and 11 direct profiles, created with a bunch of different mic’s and speakers… check out the link below for more information on this profile pack.

The Marshall JCM2000 seems to be well regarded by guitarists by looking at the discussions online. Judging from these profiles, well I can just concure – it sure sounds sweet to me!

Hope you enjoyed the video – feel free to support my channel with a subscription if you did! (Sub-link provided below…) Forever and ever a Big Thanks to all of you who do subscribe!!

Flux-Drive by Mesa Boogie (Pedal review / test / demo)

Review by Have Guitar!

The Mesa Flux-Drive is the overdrive pedal for those who want more of all the best things from an overdrive, according to Mesa themselves. Is that so? The Cambridge dictionary states that the word “flux” means “continous change”. Well, that makes no sence what so ever…

As an overdrive the Flux-Drive surely makes the job you’d expect from an overdrive, it really helps shaping what you already got soundwise rather than recreating the tone. The bass and treble controls gives you additional control over the sound, which is always welcome. These EQ controls are just set enough according to me, they will change the sound but not drastically so.

Also I must add that some of the sound demos in the video actually sounds better now, when listening to the video than what I felt about them whilst playing. The Flux-Drive was nice pedal to try out but for me personally – it is not a pedal that I will buy in the future (the pedal in the video was borrowed).

Thanks for watching my videos! If you wanna support my channel, I have provided a subscription link below. As always, directly from my heart – Thank You, to all you who do subscribe!!

Unchained by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

Time for a closeup demo of the Unchained Kemper profile pack from Live Ready Sound! These profiles recreates the sound from a Metropoulos DVL-1 amp head and in my ears, this is the way it should sound!!

The Metropoulos DVL-1 is in fact the signature model of William DuVall (Alice in Chains) and the vision was to “build the ultimate plexi-style 100-watt amplifier with maximum flexibility and functionality and zero compromise in components, signal purity, and tone.”. The amplifier features four modes :

’65 Mode – “maximum R&B” tones of 1965-era Pete Townshend up to the full-throated JTM-45 growl of AC/DC’s Angus Young
’66 Mode – heavier blues-rock tones of Cream and The Jimi Hendrix Experience
’68 Mode – inspired by the 1968 Marshall plexi amp used by Edward Van Halen
Mod Mode – Think Metallica or Alice in Chains. Mod Mode offers maximum heaviness but with a clarity, musicality, and harmonic richness

The descriptions above directly qouted from Metropoulus webpage for this amp. Link provided below if you wanna check out more information about this fantastic amp!

Hope you liked this demo, buy the pack if you wanna support Live Ready Sound – subscribe to my channel if you wanna support me! Thanks to all the subscribers, you’re the best!

Great Expectations by KISS (Lesson for guitar & bass)

Lessons by Have Guitar!

Time for a lesson on how to play Great Expectations by KISS. Both guitar and bass! Not overly comlicated but what a great song, if you ask me… this track comes from Destroyer and was released in 1976. As it happends it was the first rock album that I got my hands on and after that there was no turning back, whatever the current trends says (grin).

Some people might say that Destroyer was ‘over-produced’ but I think the sound of that album is fantastic, it kinda captures the image of KISS – especially in the new costumes they got for that album. From what I know the song has only been performed live once and that was during the recording of ‘Symphony Alive IV’, understandable as it kinda feels a bit empty when scaled down to just guitars, bass and drums.

Anyways, I hope you liked the lesson and maybe even had some use of it… if you wanna support Have Guitar – subscribe, see the link below. Big appreciation goes out to all of You who do subscribe, Thanks!!!

Riot Drums by Ugritone (Review – Demo – Showcase)

Video by Have Guitar!

Riot Drums from Ugritone is a 64-bit VST/VST3/AU/AXX plugin, inspired by the classic 90’s hard core albums. This drum plugin has many great features like adjustable mics (close, room close/far, overheads…), great routing possibilities and freely adjustable midinotes for the drums.

In this video we’ll go through this drum plugin; looking at the features but of course giving some sound examples as well, standalone as well as “in the mix”. (By the way, the sound of the guitars in the song featured in the video comes from Kemper profiles from ReampZone, bass was recorded with a profile from Live Ready Sounds Traced Bass for Kemper.)

Top 5 2019 Kemper profile packs! (Kemper profiles demo)

Top 5 by Have Guitar!

Another year passed and here is my top 5 list of the packs that I have demoed during 2019! It was not an easy task to pick out only 5 of the 40 something packs that I have had the pleasure of testing. It’s a dirty job but someones gotta do it! I have taken all sorts of things into consideration when chosing the five; number of profiles, tweaking of the original amp, sound, feel, effects, price and so on. In the end it’s my own experience from the packs that counts, how fun was it to play? How inspirational were the tones?

So thanks again for the year that has passed, hope you’ll keep following Have Guitar for 2020 as well! For 2020 I’m planning on doing even more varied videos and I would to do some more practicing and recording of songs. If I will have the time for that, time will tell. I’ve also been thinking on doing some album reviews – starting on the Have Guitar Facebook page but maybe and just maybe that could be something to do in video format as well? We’ll see…

Wishing you all a fantastic 2020 and again thanks for the subs, the views and your comments!

Quick Spawn Mini Pack by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Here’s a rather fresh release from Live Ready Sound – the Quick Spawn Mini Pack that recreates the sound of a Splawn Quick Rod amplifier!

So the original amp features 100 watt, 2 channels (clean & overdrive), three different “gears” (Hot Rod Plexi, Hot Rod 800 & Super Hot Rod 800), solo boost and more. Check out the link to Splawn amplification below for more information.

The amp in general has a good rep online amongst guitarists and the sound of these profiles will not make you disappointed – unless you’re looking for clean tones. Gain is the keyword and that seems to be where this amp shines! It’s not really modern metal gain style but more classic hard rock / metal if I may say so. All in all you will get 30 studio profiles and 6 direct profiles in this pack, ready to rock your Kemper!

I included some riffs from Dokken and RAT in this video – check the the index at the bottom of this description for that. These profiles sure seems to fit right in that 80’s hair metal sound…

Thanks for watching Have Guitar and I do hope you’ll like it! If you wanna support me – subscribe, doesn’t cost ya a dime! And to you who do subscribe – Thank You! You’re the inspiration as Chicago put it so poetically.

Parasite by KISS (Guitar & Bass Lesson)

Let’s Play! by Have Guitar!

Time for another lesson in the noble art known as guitar playing! And if you guess it’s a classic KISS song – you’re absolutely right! This one has been requested and as a humble servant I hear and obey, this is Parasite from the album Hotter Than Hell! Lessons for rhythm guitar, lead guitar and bass included.

Parasite was written by Ace Frehley for the KISS-album Hotter Than Hell, recorded in August 1974 and released October 22 the same year. While written by Ace, it’s Gene Simmons doing the lead vocals. There are some small differencies between the studio and the live version, especially in the guitar solo – it’s the Alive! version I’ve used as a reference for this lesson.

I do hope you liked this video and that you might have some use for it! If you wanna support Have Guitar – subscribe!! A Big Thank You to you who already do!
