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!

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

It’s been awhile since I featured a profile pack from ReampZone so here’s the Randall Satan (120w) Kemper profile pack! The pack is packed (pun intended!) with fat metal tones but flexible enough for other styles as well. Contains both direct and studio profiles, some boosted with stomps like the Fortin 33 for an extra tight nice boost!

The Randall Satan is the signature amp of Ola Englund, comes in two variants (120 and 50 W). The 120W version comes with 2 channels and of course loaded with features… for more details, check the link to Randall Amplification provided below.

I hope I made this sweet pack from ReampZone justice and that you’ll like this demo. Feel free to support Have Guitar by a subscription! A bag of “thank yous” is handed out to you who subsscribe as always… you make it worthwhile to keep it up!

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!

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

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

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
