Have Guitar is uber-excited to present a new Kemper Rig Showcase – ReampZone’s Bogner Uberschall Twin Jet!
Yes, it’s a (almost) brand new rig pack from ReampZone and it’s brutal! So what the heck means uberschall anyways? It’s german and it means super sonic – it’s designed for heavy and aggressive music styles. According to Bogner themselves it works especially well with detuned and baritone guitars. I’d say it works quite well with ordinary guitars as well and not only for extremely hard music.
So, don’t confuse this amp with the ordinary Bogner Uberschall. The Bogner Uberschall Twin Jet was introduced in 2009 and the Twin Jet part of the name implies that it has two channels: one clean that can go from semi clean to hot rodded high gain and one super high gain channel and to this added controls. This amplifier has some really interesting tones and a sound of its own. Just listen and judge for yourself!
And… this is the first Kemper Rig Showcase where I use the new lights. Still dialing in the settings to make the video better but I would say goodbye to those dark videos we’ve seen in the past!
Also – this is the first (but not last) Rig Showcase where I use the Ibanez Destroyer – a killer guitar, watch out for a review of that guitar here at Have Guitar in a near future!
And don’t forget – Fret Nut… Have Guitar! And watch out for those pesky jet’s.
I do hope you liked the video and if you want to support Have Guitar! for it’s everlasting struggle against boredom – subscribe! Doesn’t cost ya a dime but every subscriber counts! Thanks for watching my videos and a very BIG thanks to all of you who already subscribes!
Have Guitar is excited to present a pickup shoot-out: the DiMarzio Norton vs Seymour Duncan JB! As I’ve seen some on-line discussions about these two pickups I just thought it could be interesting make a comparing video now that I just happens to temporarily have a guitar with a DiMarzio Norton in the studio. Gotta grab the opportunity when it knocks…
The DiMarzio is described as a pickup designed to “extend the tonal range and power without going over the top”. It has an Alnico 5 magnet and is rated by DiMarzio with treble 5.0, Mid 7.0 and bass 6.5. The Seymour Duncan JB is described as being able to handle any genre from blues to thrash with a hot output. It has an Alnico 5 magnet is rated as treble 7.5, mid 5-6 and bass 4-5 (roughly estimated by me as there are only staples at Seymour Duncans web page!).
In this video I will compare the two pickups through five different Kemper profiles, from log gain to very high gain rigs. And if you don’t wanna hear me talking here’s an index that you can use to jump between the actual playing:
Have Guitar is boldly revisiting the dragons den in this (bonus!) Kemper Rig Showcase – ReampZones Framus Dragon rig pack!
ReampZone is about to update their Framous Dragon rig pack and Have Guitar! got a chance of testing out a preview pack of that update. It’s fat, it’s wicked and it screams… viciously. Very mean and very metal, if you ask me – or just have look at this Rig Showcase and judge for yourself.
Just wanted to say; the video starts out a bit dark but it gets better. Had some problems with my low quality light setup but no more! I recieved my new lighting kit today and it works really well so that will most likely cure any problems like this in the future, it’s getting better.
Have Guitar heavily presents ReampZones Randall RD 20 – a Rig Showcase for the wicked! In this pack you’ll get both clean and hi-gain profiles and also both direct and studio profiles. This profile pack contains some seriously sweet profiles, profiles that has That tone – the one that just keeps you playing ’til your fingers bleed.
It’s all there and while this amp is mainly directed to metal heads I really do believe others can enjoy it as well. Have look and a listen to my rig showcase and judge for yourself!

Guitars used in this video:

Gibson SG Standard 2016 High Performance (490R/498T)
Have Guitar is proud to present ReampZones Orange TH30 (Modded) profile pack for the Kemper Profiling Amp! This is one rockin’ good profile pack for yer Kemper – it would definitely get a place on my Top-10 rig pack for the KPA! So, as the name suggests this is not a standard Orange TH30, it has been modified to sound even better than the original amp does and that also makes this rig pack unique.
This is a pack that is flexible when it comes to the sounds it can produce, I think it could be used for any genre really. The Orange has a great tone and sustain and even the more high gain profiles have a fantastic string separation. OK, so enough, you got it – I really do dig this rig pack from ReampZone… the pack includes direct profile (23), merged profiles (35) and studio profiles (30).
Guitars used in this Rig Showcase:
Gibson SG Standard 2016 High Performance, Fender Stratocaster American Standard 2014 (Shawbucker) and Harley Benton TE70 Black Paisley (Fender Texas Specials).

Have Guitar is happy to be able to present – pictures at an exhibition! No, wait, that’s not it… ah, yes – ReampZones Engl Savage 120! Oh metal, you think but think again! This is a really flexible profiles pack for your Kemper, containing profiles that sweep from clean to raw gain and anything between. Or as ReampZone says it on their webpage: “A highly versatile 120 high gain monster with a fantastic natural tight bottom end , this head can do it all from crisp cleans to blazing metal at the tip of your fingers.” I could not agree more!
In this Rig Showcase from Have Guitar you will get a varied selection from these profiles – mostly lined recording but also some samples from live in the room. For a couple of these Kemper profiles I’ll be adding delay and the infamous transpose effect but otherwise all profiles are dislayed as they come when you buy this pack (that contains 53 Direct Profiles and 28 Studio Profiles for your KPA). Also included are some backing track demo’s so who can hear the profiles “in the mix”.
Guitars used in this rig showcase: Gibson Les Paul 1976, Harley Benton TE-70 Black Paisley (with Fender Texas Specials pickups), Fender Stratocaster (Shawbucker) and an ESP Phoenix II.

Have Guitar is proud to present a Kemper Rig Showcase for ReampZone’s Marshall 2555X Silver Jubilee. In this rig pack you will get 29 Direct profiles and 33 Studio profiles with gain from 0 to 8. The profiles in this pack really reflect the original amp, that was redesigned for more tonal flexibility than (at the time) the previous Marshall amps.
As Marshall puts it on their webpage for this amp: “The Bass, Middle, Treble & Presence controls, although shared between channels, were re-designed and offered more tonal variation than any other Marshall product had before.” My opinion is that there are some really sweet tones to be found in this pack and well, it certainly sounds like a Marshall should!
In this Kemper Rig Showcase I will demonstrate a selection of these fine profiles, the examples will be mainly lined recordings but I included a couple of “live in the room” samples for comparisons sake. I’ve also included some samples where the profiles are used together with backing tracks, a good way to showcase how they work in the mix.
Guitars used in this Rig Showcase: Gibson Les Paul ’76, Gibson Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S., ESP Phoenix II and Harley Benton TE-70 Black Paisley – a good selection of guitars with very different sounds for a wider aspect of how these profiles sounds.

To all of you who already subscribed – Thank You! It’s very much appreciated!!
Have Guitar proudly presents a review video of the Gibson Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S. – a guitar you won’t find every day as it’s a limited edition model. Now matter if you like Ace Frehley or not this is one fine Les Paul Custom, there is no doubt about that. The Budokan Les Paul Custom V.O.S. was manufactured in a stricly limited edition of 50 hand-aged (reliced) and signed by Ace Frehley, 100 hand-aged/reliced and 150 guitars treated in Gibson Customs VOS process (Vintage Original Specification).
According to Gibson “the Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom is a painstaking recreation of Frehley’s modified Les Paul Custom, based on intimate examination of the instrument’s current condition.” Well, I can tell you with that Dimarzio Super Distortion pickup you will get that sound that you can hear in the live videos from the mid seventies when KISS performs live.
In this video Have Guitar will showcase the Gibson Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S. in 4K video and of course there will be sound examples both live in the room as well as lined recordings. Something that I personally really like about this Les Paul is that it’s a real signature model, in that aspect that it’s an authentic replica of a vintage Gibson Les Paul Custom. It’s not like “the 300” signature model that was released in 1997, that had Ace Frehley’s makeup on the headstock – sure they are also a limited run and probably highly collectable but it’s not a guitar that is historically correct in that aspect. The Budokan Les Paul is much more the real deal according to me and whilst this is not my guitar I can tell ya – I would love to own one…
And that’s it! I hope you like the showcase of this Gibson Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S. – a very big thanks to Klas, who was so generous as to lend me this rare Les Paul – that is very much appriciated!!! I never thought I would even get close to one of these but thanks to him I did… so if you liked the video, there’s more where that came from!

Time for another Kemper Rig Showcase and in this episode Have Guitar! takes a look at the Peavey JSX rig pack from ReampZone. Described by ReampZone as a monster of high gain, tight and fierce – designed for metal heads and that’s right but it doesn’t stop there. This amp head (or rather these profiles) will not stop at metal, it’s fully capable of dirty rock to raw blues and it does it all very well. So far this JSX pack offers 16 direct profiles and 20 studio profiles for your Kemper Profiling Amp with a promise of more profiles coming. So, in this Rig Showcase Have Guitar! will give you a bunch of sound examples, mostly lined recordings, side-by-side comparison of profiles in the same gain level and in-the-mix examples – played with a Fender Stratocaster American Standard (Shawbucker and single-coils) and an ESP Phoenix II (Seymour Duncan JB / ’59), two sound wise very different guitars to bring you a wider perspective of how these profiles actually sound.
The original amp is a signature model for Joe Satriani, designed to offer lots of sound possibilities, from vintage to modern triple XXX-style. The three channel 120W amp produces sounds from clean to heavy/hard rock, offers high gain and low gain inputs together with a “fat switch” that changes the timbre of the crunch and ultra channels. It also features a built-in noise gate for those screaming high gain sounds.
A big thanks to ReampZone for letting Have Guitar! try out/showcase these profiles – I hope you will like the video as much as I enjoyed this profile pack!
