Vibe Queen by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Here’s a demo of the Vibe Queen Kemper profile pack from ToneJunkie! This profile pack recreates the sound from a Fender Vibro King amplifier and it contains both studio and direct profiles for your Kemper Profiling Amp.

As always with profiles from ToneJunkie you can expect some well profiled sounds from an amp that is quite capable. You won’t get any chuggy metal here but there’s dirty driven tones included of course! If you wanna get into the more heavy side of life you’ll need to drive it up with an overdrive or similar. I should mention that some of the profiles are boosted with a Klone overdrive pedal.

I do hope you will like this demo, I tried making an overview of what this pack has to offer. If you wanna support my channel a subscription is of course more than welcome… (see the link below!). A Big Thanks to all you who subscribe already!!

Krank Rev 1 Ultimate Kemper Pack by Gold Lion Studios (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Time to try out a brand new Kemper profile pack from Gold Lion Studios – the Krank Rev Ultimate Kemper Pack! This is a gain best of an amp and (I believe) mostly used by metal bands. But it can do more than so, if you ask me…

This pack from Gold Lion Studios comes with studio, merged and direct profiles, 55 profiles all in all and it ranges from clean to drippin’ gain! I really liked the variation that this profile pack offers, the profiles are tweaked with a good variation to’em and there’s also effects included from the start. I had a blast when doing this demo and I hope that comes through in the video…

Fulltone OCD vs Tone City Dry Martini (Comparision / Blind test!)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

The master and the contender… maybe. So I have reviewed the Tone City Dry Martini, without comparing it to the pedal that it’s based on; the Fulltone OCD. I saved that for this video and after some thinking I decided to make it a blind test. Who doesn’t love a blind test?!! It’s scientific, fun and… well, a somewhat fair way to do an A/B-test.

I don’t think the Fulltone OCD needs a detailed introduction. It’s a classic overdrive pedal, available in many different versions and made in the USA. This pedal is said to have been sold in over 250000 units since it came around in late 2004. A sensitive overdrive, something that can create those overtones from a driven tube amplifier.

The Tone City Dry Martini is a smaller sized ‘clone’, made in China and cheaper than the OCD. It do have the same controls (Volume, Tone, Gain and a hi/low gain switch) but the spec’s are not excatly the same… and I do believe you can hear that – in my ears they do not sound the same. And that’s why I figured a blind test would be a good way to go about!

This way you can check out which sound you prefer, it might… or might not… surprize you. Let me know in the comments what you thought sounded the best! And did you get it right, pedal by pedal?

Dry Martini by Tone City (Review / Demo / Showcase)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

The American writer E.B. White said about the Dry martini; “the elixir of quietude”, which of course is something you couldn’t (or maybe shouldn’t) say about an overdrive pedal like the Tone City Dry Martini… (yes, he was talking about the drink).

So this is a demo/review of the Tone City micro pedal Dry Martini. This is a clone of the Fulltone OCD pedal and features about the same controls as the OCD; Volume, Tone, Gain and a high/low gain switch. The gain is best described as low to medium with a punchy character (think a tube amplifier at its ‘sweet spot’). It should be noted that the latest version of the Fulltone OCD has some features that the Dry Martini hasn’t; like the ‘Enhanced bypass’ for example.

This video is all about the Tone City Dry Martini on its own, no comparison with the Fulltone OCD. If not already out, I will soon release a “blind test” video where you can test if you can spot which is the original pedal (or which of them you would prefer). I’ve used one clean sound and one slightly overdriven sound for this review, should be noted that due to a malfunction the sound in the overdriven sound part of the video is captured by room microphones.

Hope you like the video – support Have Guitar! with a subscription! I’m very grateful to all you who already do, Thanks!

Dummble Pack by Top Jimi (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Here’s a demo of the Dummble Pack from Top Jimi – it’s a great pack of tones here according to my opinion and taste! It’s a big pack with over 100 profiles and it’s not very expensive.

So, Dummble you say? Seems there’s a lot of various Dumble sounds floating around. And I guess that isn’t surprising considering a used Dumble amp can cost way over 100 000 USD!! So these profiles comes from a Ceriatone Overtone Special (100 watts), and that should be a ‘clone’ of an original Dumble amp (and a lot cheaper by that!).

Clone may sound a bit degrading, I don’t really care because it sounds great! Rich tones, great gain sound and various styles of sound is what this pack from Top Jimi will get ya and I hope my demo shows that. Me? I really digg this pack, it is a keeper for sure!!

This profile pack contains both studio as well as merged profiles, profiled with three different speakers; 12″ Celestion Vintage 30, 1970 12″ Celestion 25W Greenback and 1967 12″ Celestion 20W Greenback.

Trident by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

It’s not every day ToneJunkie releases a pack based on a Mesa Boogie amp, but this is it! The Trident Kemper profile pack recreates the sound from a Mesa Boogie Stiletto Trident and in ToneJunkies own words – “If you are a fan of British EL34 amps but enjoy want a less vintage and more hi fi flavor and tightness…this pack is right for you!!!”

The pack contains 18 studio and 11 direct profiles, not the largest pack but sometimes that is good thing, you know… decreases the risk of decision agony! The profile pack has good variety but don’t expect any metal style tones out of the box. The original amp is said bring both Marshall and Mesa tones and that is pretty much how I experienced these profiles.

JCM800 2203 1995 Ltd Red by Katzbach (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Someone mentioned Katzbach as the no 1 Marshall profiler and of course I had to check them out! So this is the first time Katzbach is featured at Have Guitar and let’s start it off with the JCM800 2203 1995 Lrd Red-pack!

So this is a limited edition of a Marshall JCM800 2203 – there were 200 of them made and the color of choise is red, just as the name suggests! EL34 tubes and 100 watt… that is the info I have and it seems like a good Marshall tone right there. However, note that the profiles are kind of meek in this pack, you will not get a fist full of Marshall energy from this pack. But of course if you want that kind of tone maybe you should look for another pack…

I liked the pack – let me know what you think about it in the comments! And if you wanna see more from Have Guitar – subscribe! That support will be very much appreciated! To all you who already do – Thank You!!!

DP Durple by Tone City (pedal review – demo – showcase)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

Here’s a new guitar overdrive pedal from Tone City – DP Durple! So it is not a signature pedal but it’s collaboratively designed by Tone City and “Danish Pete” from Andertons. The DP Durple is based on Tone City Mandragora OD but modified to suit Danish Pete’s tonal taste.

So the Tone City Mandragora is based on the Kalamazoo Love Drive and the DP Durple is as said based on the Mandragora, with some modifications. The Mandragora’s ‘Pre’ (presence) has been replaced by a ‘Mid’ control that let’s you cut or boost the amount of mid-range. The ‘Tone’ control has been adjusted to be less bright, offering a more moderate amount of treble so it’s not too shrill at the higher settings.

Otherwise it’s a small but sturdy analogue pedal; metal casing and true bypass. The dimensions are 4.2 x 5.2 x 9.3 cm and it needs a 9VDC power supply, no battery compartment. The controls are gain, volume, mid and tone.

West Avalon by Mattfig (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Time for Have Guitar Rig Showcase #2:20 and here’s a rare beast profiled; West Laboratories Amplifiers Avalon by Mattfig! This pack packs some serious vintage raw power and brings 131 profiles (both studio and direct).

So what about the amp behind this sound? Well, it’s West Amps and it’s kinda hard finding much information about them. These amps were built by David West and made their clame to fame by being used by Grand Funk Railroad (on their first four albums).

West stopped making these amps full-time at the end of the 70’s and by the end of the 80’s he closed business to go on other ventures. Or did he? I have found other sources that states he left the business already in 1972 and that reissues of the classic West amps were launched around 2013. I don’t know which of the above is true, the information is scarce…

Anyways, this pack recreates the sound from a West Avalon amp, 50 watts and I would say it covers all lot of ground… nice warm cleans up to quite heavy (pedal boosted) tones.

There we go! Hope you enjoyed this video, if you wanna support my channel please subscribe! Thanks to all of you who already do!

Riot Drums by Ugritone (Review – Demo – Showcase)

Video by Have Guitar!

Riot Drums from Ugritone is a 64-bit VST/VST3/AU/AXX plugin, inspired by the classic 90’s hard core albums. This drum plugin has many great features like adjustable mics (close, room close/far, overheads…), great routing possibilities and freely adjustable midinotes for the drums.

In this video we’ll go through this drum plugin; looking at the features but of course giving some sound examples as well, standalone as well as “in the mix”. (By the way, the sound of the guitars in the song featured in the video comes from Kemper profiles from ReampZone, bass was recorded with a profile from Live Ready Sounds Traced Bass for Kemper.)
