Kemper through the Katana FX Loop – test!

Kemper through the Katana FX Loop – test!
…by Have Guitar

Might be this video is slightly overdue but now it’s here. As you might know I already did a video where I test running the Kemper through the Boss Katana, using the aucoustic channel on the Katana and hooking up the KPA straight into the front of the amp. And back then I promised to do a similar test but with the Kemper through the Katanas effects loop and this is it!

In this video you will get the following examples for the four different profiles that I tested out:

* Recorded straight into Reaper (Kemper-SPDIF-Soundcard-Reaper)
* Kemper through my studio monitors, Event ASP8
* Kemper through the Katanas FX loop; Cab on and Cab character set to 0.0
* Kemper through the Katanas FX loop; Cab on and Cab character set to -5.0
* Kemper through the Katanas FX loop; Cab off

I was a bit surprised that the last test did not work that well, sounded a bit harsh to me… I’m open for suggestions if I maybe did some mistake there so feel free to lecture me. Otherwise I still feel it sounds good. So the Katana is not a real FRFR speaker and I’m pretty sure one of those will do the jobb even better. But, then we have the price factor! A Katana costs around 1/3 of a FRFR solution and considering that, well I think it performs pretty darn good as an inexpensive solution. Also as I stated in the video, if the Kemper would fail you – the you have a backup right there in the Boss Katana as that works well on its own.

I do hope you liked the video – support my channel by subscription for more and better videos! To all you who subscribes – Thank You!

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!!

Gibson 2019 Explorer Tribute – Test & Review

Gibson 2019 Explorer Tribute – Test & Review
Guitar Review by Have Guitar

Heeeeello Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019! Yeah, I know… Gibson isn’t what they used to be and the financial problems and quality issues with some years. Still, old habits die hard and I have been into Gibson way back. So far back it actually started when I was kid – many years before I even got a chance to pickup an electric guitar. For me, they just have a special place in my heart – but that doesn’t mean I can’t be critical when needed.

The original Explorer model has been one of my favourite models for a long time, I have played a few but the only one I actually bought was an Ibanez Destroyer (reissue of the original Destroyer). I had also promised myself not buy any more gear for good while ahead… and then came the Gibson 2019 lineup. Uhm. And Andertons had the Explorer Tribute in stock. Did you hear a breaking sound? Yup, that was my promise to myself that broke.

Well, there you have the some background to why I bought this guitar, unplayed and untested from the UK. The rest of the review and my rants are in the video – of course together with a good bunch of sound demos. Also see the index below for your convinience, if you wanna skip to some specific part of the video review.

Index:
00:38 – What’s in the case
02:54 – Specifications Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019
05:48 – Clean to Low gain sound demos
08:30 – Ramblings about the purchase
10:49 – Mid gain sound demos
13:30 – High gain sound demos
15:52 – Conclusion (yep, it’s long!)

If you think the conclusion is too long (and some people will think just that!) just read the below. Just warning you, this is a very compressed version of it:

Pros:
Cool looking guitar unless you like fancy stuff
Plays great
Sounds great
Quality is good, no dead frets or fret buzz
Great service from Andertons

Cons:
No fancy details if you’re into that
Extremely ugly softcase
No hardcase
Somewhat pricey for a Tribute model

Freebie Metal Pack by ReampZone (Kemper profiles demo) + competition
Kemper Rig Showcase from Have Guitar!

Yay – ReampZone has just released a sweet free sample pack that contains ten Kemper profiles – the Freebie Metal Pack. Let me tell you, this is high quality profiles for your Kemper! As far as I can judge, none of these profiles are bad, actually they all sound bad ass. So, if you don’t have any commercial profiles this is an excellent opportunity to add some great sounding profiles to your Kemper. If you do have commercial profiles it’s still a great opportunity. Yes, mostly aimed for metal but that doesn’t mean you can’t use them for other styles as well.

And guess what? It’s time for a little “competition” here at Have Guitar! Or a give-away… but let’s call it a competition. So, I have a discount code to give away from ReampZone and that code will give You a discount of 100 dollars at ReampZones webshop. Yeah, that is right… it’s worth 100 dollars so you can buy a crap load of profiles from ReampZone. A very Big Thanks for ReampZone for this!

So how do you enter this competition?! It’s easy. In this video I have “hidden” four classic rock riffs/leads, identify at least one of those and send me an email: admin (at) haveguitar.com. Everyone who has identified at least one of those four licks correctly has an equal chance of winning the discount code. Two winners will get a Have Guitar t-shirt as runnerup price but if you do not want one please state that in your email, so I know. This competion is open until the 26th of April 2018, 00:00 CET. Good luck!

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Have Guitar is very pleased to be able to bring you a spanking new Rig Showcase where I demo the new Kemper profile pack from ReampZone – the Diezel Einstein 100 profile pack! This is ReampZone’s favourite Diezel amp and the sounds you’ll find here is smokin’!

This ain’t a one trick pony, you’ll find anything from clean sounds up to brutally fat and tight high gain screamers here. Some of the profiles are boost with pedals like the custom Mental overdrive or the Fortin 33. All in all it’s very pleasing to play with and the fun never ends… until you turn off your Kemper.

Kemper Rig Showcase from Have Guitar!

Sorry to nag but please do subscribe to Have Guitar so I can be part of Youtube’s partnership program… The new criteria is a load of viewing hours (which I got) but also 1000 sub’s which I currently do have but it’s uncomfortable close to lower limit. So, on my knees begging here, help me stay over the 1000 subs and there will be free beer. Well, at least if you ever see me in real life, otherwise you will just have to be pleased by the good feeling of helping someone out …and my eteral gratitude.

So, it’s another Kemper Rig Showcase and this time it’s brutal and it’s humongous – it is the Mesa Boogie Dual Rec REV F from ReampZone with a whopping size of 158 direct and studio profiles for your Kemper Profiling Amp!

I’m pretty sure the Mesa Boogie amplifiers doesn’t need an introduction and this profile pack from ReampZone is a monster! It is a wide array of sounds packed into these profiles – if you’re looking for aggressive, hard hitting tones you need look no further! Not that you couldn’t use these profiles for other music but clearly they are designed for metal side… or hard core… or punk… or… nah, you got it, I guess.
