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.

Pedal Frenzy from Have Guitar!

It’s Saturday nite special bonus bonanza Pedal Frenzy from Have Guitar!

Looking for a cheap distortion stomp box? Well, maybe you should just turn your head in another direction then. No, I got some descent sounds out from this NUX HG-6 distortion pedal but it sure did not go well with the Kemper.

And the HG-6 is cheap, I got it for around 20 Euros (24.6 USD) from China and be sure not to pay a penny more than that! It has some features that sounds promising like true bybass, analogue circuits and Tube simulation… and as said, it is not completely useless unless you have a Kemper – in that case I would rather recommend you to use the Kempers internal effects. but anyways, it’s red and you might have a chance of winning this pedal in the future so look out!

Friday Fun – Unboxing the Neunaber Immerse

Have Guitar! presents a fast n fun Friday video – the unboxing of a Neunaber Immerse. Yes, this is just me babbling away for 10 minutes while unboxing the stomp box – if you think that sounds boring then go and pick another video. (But make sure you pick one from Have Guitar, OK?!)

The test / review will come later, I need some time to test out and get to know this reverb pedal before I do a video about it.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar, hope you like it! Please do support me by subscribing or a leprechaun gets crushed under a tree somewhere. Thanks to all of you subscribing already, you’re leprechaun heros all of you!

Pedal Frenzy: BOSS PS-3 Digital Pitch Shifter / Delay

Have Guitar proudly presents a new feature on this channel – Pedal Frenzy! Stomp of the Month!

Yep, that right. I’m gonna try to present a demo video with a stomp box at least once a month from now on. I have featured effects pedals before so this is a continued effort but more structured if you like…

First out is the Boss PS-3 Digital Delay / Pitch Shifter. Not a new pedal, rather even a vintage one as I’ve had it since at least the early 90’s. So take a look, a listen to this demo to see how it sounds and how it stands up to modern effects. The Boss PS-3 is still for sale in used condition every here and there so I am pretty sure people are still using it!

Index:
05:04 – Mode 1 Delay 32-125 ms
07:49 – Mode 2 Delay 125-500 ms
12:43 – Mode 3 Delay 500-2000 ms
14:12 – Mode 4 Single Pitch Shifter: Detune
16:09 – Mode 5 & 6 Single Pitch Shifter: +/- 2 octaves (Fast & Slow)
18:59 – Mode 7 Single Pitch Shifter: +/- 2 octaves (Inverse)
20:41 – Mode 8 Dual Pitch Shifter: Detune & Detune
22:09 – Mode 9 Dual Pitch Shifter: Detune & +/- 2 octaves
23:01 – End/Conclusion
