Rob Maramonte (November 2018) by ToneCrate (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Disclaimer: October or November? Slightly confusing here, but Rob is listed as the October featured artist and the pack arrived early November. So from now on I will list it as when it arrives = this IS the November pack. For me at least.

Time for a new surprize pack from ToneCrate and this month its tweaked by Rob Maramonte from The Zenith Passage. It’s 9 really heavy profiles (and one clean!) and so far this is my favourite from ToneCrate!

So, the amps included here is Peavey Triple X, EVH 5150 III, Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier, Peavey 5150, Marshall JCM 800 and Bogner Uberschall. As said, most of the sounds are hard and heavy except one clean tone. It’s good…

God of War by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

God of War by Live Ready Sound (KRS Ares 50)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Time for a closer look at the God of War pack from Live Ready Sound. This is a pack that is based on a KRS Ares 50 amplifier and it brings a long 95 Kemper profiles (8 direct profiles), of course ranging from clear to gain dripping sounds. I’m pretty sure the pack will grow over time and there will surely be at least a couple more updates from Live Ready Sound.

The KRS Ares 50 seems to be a really versatile amp with lots of options through voice switching and much more. If you are interested take a look at the detailed description provided by KRS on their website. The link is of found further down in this description.

As usual I do hope you enjoyed the video! Feel free to support Have Guitar by subscribing to the channel – it’s free for you and gives me the support I need. To all you who sub – Thanks, couldn’t do it without You!

V40 Deluxe Pack by Victory Amps (Kemper profiles demo)

V40 Deluxe Pack by Victory Amps (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Here a new Kemper Rig Showcase – welcome! So, Victory Amps got Rebea Massaad to make them some official Kemper profiles packs, that is a stroke of genius if you ask me. This is a typical example of creative thinking that will allow you to stay in business by adopting to the changes that will occur. I’m kinda surprised noone has cracked this idea before, but I guess someone has to be first!

So, I figured I’d do a mini series that will “air” on sundays here at Have Guitar and first out is the V40 Deluxe, an amp for the “feel players” as Victory puts it. Sure is no gain monster and it’s described as “expect classic American cleans through to pushed tweedy grit and on to driven British blues-rock” which I think is about right.

In the video I mention a bit about the dark character of the profiles. After this session I hooked up my Kemper to the Boss Katana and I must say that gave a different sound. So, that is not included here but will most likely be in the coming Victory videos!

Shock Me by KISS (Guitar Lesson)

Shock Me by KISS (Guitar Lesson)
Let’s Play by Have Guitar!

Here’s a lesson on how to play the song “Shock Me” from KISS’ album Love Gun, released 1977. It’s a great song, not very complicated but since when has that been a prerequisite for good song? 🙂 The song was inspired by an accident that happened on stage 1976, Ace got electrocuted and the rest is Kisstory as they say.

The tuning on the song is a half step down, so when you see me taking an A chord, it’s actually in G sharp and so on. The rhythm parts are like they play on the record whilst the solo is close to but not perfectly like on the album. Like I say in the video, it’s not like Ace always played it live exactly like on the album either. So, if you wanna do it exactly like on the album this could be a good start but you’ll need to polish some details to get it “perfect”.

All guitars recorded with a Kemper Profiling Amp, the profiles comes from Live Ready Sound’s Plexed for Kemper pack, see link further down.

DiMarzio Norton vs Seymour Duncan JB – pickup shoot out!

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:

01:49 – Fender SuperRev Clean (low gain)
03:44 – Fuchs Blackjack 21 MKII (crunch)
04:59 – Wizard (Mid-gain)
06:33 – Marshall JVM410 (High gain)
08:39 – Peavey 5150 (High gain)

Guitars used in this video:
ESP Phoenix II (Seymour Duncan JB / ’59)
ESP Eclipse (DiMarzio Norton / Air Norton)
