Rig Showcase: ReampZones Engl Savage 120

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.

Rig Showcase: ReampZones Marshall 2555X Silver Jubilee

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.

I hope you like this video from Have Guitar as much as I enjoyed playing with this fantastic pack from ReampZone… if you like it, please consider subscribing to the channel – it’s just a click on the subscribe button for you but it will support the channel and enable more videos.

Test/review: Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom V.O.S.

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!

Rig Showcase: ReampZone Peavey JSX

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!

Rig Showcase: ReampZones Krank REV 1

Have Guitar is back with a new showcase of ReampZones Krank REV 1, one monster rig pack for the Kemper Profiling Amp! This pack is based on the Krank Revolution 1 tube amplifier and contains 30 direct profiles and 19 studio profiles – in this showcase you will hear all 19 of the studio profiles played with my ESP Phoenix II guitar. It sounds great and heavy and it’s a blast to play…! Krank it up!!!

(OK, so that was a mistake – the Krank Revolution 1 is not the same amp as the Krankenstein… but it’s still a monster according to Have Guitar!)

Rig Showcase: Reampzone’s Diamond Spec Ops

OK, so here’s a Rig Showcase from Have Guitar: ReampZones Diamond Spec Ops – awesome rig pack that comes with studio-, merged- and direct profiles. Fourtyfive profiles of pure rockin’ happiness!

The original amp is a 100 watts head that has been owned by one of Alice Coopers guitarists, Keri Kelly! That fact alone could make anyone wanna try this Kemper profiles pack out… but it also sounds fantastic. And I hope you’ll like the video – if you do, please support Have Guitar and subscribe; it’s free and there’s content added every week and you’re doing a good deed that’ll positive karma for ya. I promise.

Sidenotes:
Still not happy with the video … the mobile is not a much better option, especially as it cuts recording the video for some reason, just at the end but still! Also, I really need to plan my vid’s better. In this one I didn’t even warm up before I started the recording and that’s kinda shows. Well, it can only get better! 🙂

Rig Showcase: ReampZone Hughes & Kettner Trilogy

Allright, I went up early this morning to get the time for a quick recording and this time it’s a first: Have Guitar Kemper Rig Showcase (originally called rig rundown). First out is the excellent Hughes & Kettner Trilogy rig pack from Reampzone. I hope you’ll like it! Still experimenting with both light and sound to get it as good as I can – this time the sound comes from my Zoom H4n, which certainly captures the sound better than my video cam.

This rig pack from Reampzone contains 8 clean channel profiles, 10 crunch channel, 11 lead channel and 13 ultra channel profiles. In the latter three some profiles are boosted with TS808 stomp. You’ll also get 9 Merged Profiles (Clean, Crunch, Lead and Ultra)! It’s a very nice collection of Kemper profiles and there are also five try-for-free profiles on Reampzone webshop.

Rig showcase: ReampZone’s Fryette / VHT Sig:X

The Fryette Sig:X rig pack from Reampzone – featured on todays Rig showcase. I had a whole lotta fun with these Kemper profiles that ranges from clean to high gain. This amp/These profiles really has some versatility to’em, and they have a nice bite allready at low gain levels. In this showcase you will get some opinions from me on them and of course sound examples as well, using the Fender Stratocaster and the ESP Phoenix II here, both live in the room and lined signal!

Rig showcase: ReampZones Framus Dragon

So, you’ve been looking for a fat bottomed gain monster with an aggresive attitude? Well, then the Framus Dragon amplifier could be something for you – or try this Kemper rig pack from ReampZone, which recreates the sound of this metal mayhemic mutilator. And, yes, I think is one of those amps that is kinda aimed for a genre – but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it for other genres.
