Rumble Drive Overdrive Pedal by Mooer (Pedal sound demo & review)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar

I’ve been aware and curious about the Mooer pedals since I tried their mini-wha, The Whater, a couple of years back (it was good!). All I know really is that it is a Chinese company – for me that doesn’t mean it has to be crap. Anyways, so I had a couple of giftcards at the local music store and I came back with 4 Mooer pedals, three of them I got at reduced price.

This video is about the Mooer Rumble Drive Overdrive pedal. Seems most of Mooer’s pedals are based on other wellknown pedals and I did find a webpage that lists them all (the link provided further down). The Rumble Drive is no exception – it’s based on the Hermida/Lovepedal Zendrive. I’ve never tried the Zendrive but I have read some good stuff about it.

And I can tell you; this little green metal box contains some magic tones! I was honestly impressed by the possibilities and the sounds that this pedal brings to the table. It just would not sound bad – especially when you keep volume control up. This one IS a keeper, no doubts about that – just listen to my demo/review of it and judge for yourself!

Schecter E-1 Custom Special Edition VSB (Guitar review)

Guitar review by Have Guitar

High time for a review of the Schecter E-1 Custom Special Edition VSB electric guitar – I’ve had this guitar for about 1½ years now and it’s just time now for a thorough test/review video of it.

In this review video I will go through the specifications, how it is to play and give you loads of different sound demos – see the index below if you wanna go to a special part of this video. There is no information more than the pure spec’s on Schecters webpage but that seems to go for all of their instruments. The E-1 model comes in a few different variations that share the same ‘Explorer/Iceman’ style body. For more info about Schecter Guitars see the link below to the Wikipedia page about Schecter.

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!!

Fulltone OCD Overdrive (Stomp pedal test)

Fulltone OCD Overdrive (Stomp pedal test)
Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar

It’s time to take a closer look at the Fulltone OCD, is there any guitarist that haven’t heard about this pedal? It should “replicates the dynamics and harmonics of a fully-wound tube amplifier with its typical output stage distortion” and I’ve seen it described both as an overdrive and a distortion effect. I guess it has the characteristics of both.

I guess the Fulltone OCD doesn’t need any closer introduction, it’s a classic pedal and for more info check out the link to Fulltone’s webpage provided below. I’ll add a link to a fantastic video from ToneJunkie that compares all the different versions of the OCD, go see it – it’s really worth the time watching it.

Hope you liked this video – feel free to give me some support by subscribing! And you know what comes next… that’s right, a Fat Big Thanks to all you who do sub!!

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.

Have Guitar premiere: Pedal Frenzy

So, Youtube has given me access to a new feature called “premiere” and as it has been awhile since I did a Pedal Frenzy / review and as I have changed the format a bit I thought I’d test this feature…

The premiere will take place on Have Guitar’s Youtube channel the 15:th of November, 06:00 PM (1800 in 24h-mode) US Central Time. So this is an “early warning” and I have no idea how this will work out… but I gotta try it right?

The Pedal Frenzy video will be live at the above given time/date on this URL. I suppose that won’t work until a couple of minutes before the video starts.

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!!

Boss Katana & Effect Pedals

Boss Katana & Effect Pedals from Have Guitar!

Finally an answer to a question that has been plaguing savvy Internet guitarists since the Boss Katana was released: how does the Katana take pedals? And here is the answer: as any other guitar amplifier. But. If that is not enough for you – ye of doubtful minds – then watch this video.

So yes, in this video I have selected a few gain pedals from my vast collection (read; four out of five pedals) – EHX Green Russian Big Muff (Fuzz) & Soul Food (transparent overdrive), Suhr Riot (Distortion) and the MXR Zakk Wylde Berzerker (Overdrive). They go into the front of the Boss Katana, which is setup with a “sneaky amp”: Clean Twin. And then… noodling is on. Anyways, if you are interesting in a particular pedal here’s a small index for you:

Soul Food by Electro Harmonix (Guitar overdrive pedal test / review)

Soul Food by Electro Harmonix (Guitar overdrive pedal test / review)
Pedal Frenzy from Have Guitar!

It has taken me some time to do a proper demo of Electro Harmonix “transparent” overdrive pedal Soul Food, but I can tell you already – it’s one of my drive pedals that I use most for kicking in a sweet boost to the tones…

So what does “transparent overdrive” mean anyways? I believe that started with the legendary Klon Centaur pedal in the 90’s – what is basically does is taking what you already got and boost that. Yeah, that’s it – it doesn’t totally take over the sound, instead it can boost a good sound to something a little bit more pushed but it keeps the basic character.

As the original Klon Centaur goes for ridiculous prices, a pedal like the Soul Food from EHX is a welcome alternative with a price tag much nicer for your economy. There are other alternatives as well, in different price ranges but this video is about the Soul Food so lets keep focused on that now.
