High End Fizz – rid it!

High End Fizz – rid it!
A video by Have Guitar

Here’s a little something that I for some reson don’t do too often in my videos – shaping the sound with the equalizer of the Kemper. But I do know a lot people writing about having problems with high gain and “fizz”, a disturbing bi-sound that makes your tones a lot less appealing than it could be. The fizz is often (perhaps even always!) located in the higher frequencies of the EQ-scale and it’s doesn’t really take magic to get rid of it.

So I thought a small video on this topic could be in place and this it. If you wanna skip to a particualr section here’s a (very small) index:

02:39 – Friedman BE100 with a Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019
06:42 – Victory Kraken with a Gibson SG Standard HP 2016

And that’s it! Hope you liked the video and had some use of it… feel free to support my channel with a subscription! To all you who already do so – Thanks!!!

Sir PT One Hundred by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

What’s this? A new Rig Showcase of course! Here’s the Sir PT One Hundred by Live Ready Sound – a pack that recreates the sound of a Suhr PT100 amplifier. An amp said to cover both Fender as well as Marshall typ sounds. The pack has, as I write this, already 6 updates out so if you can’t find something that suits your taste here I don’t know where you should look.

The original amp is a signature amp for guitarist Peter Thorn: “The Suhr PT100 Signature Edition features a 100 watt, three-channel tube amplifier head loaded with a custom “Plexi-style” output transformer, four EL-34 power tubes and six 12AX7 preamp tubes, a solid-state series/parallel effects loop, 4-button programmable footswitch.” Quote from Suhr’s information – for more take a look at Suhr’s webpage!

I wanna Thank Live Ready Sound for letting me do this Rig Showcase, had a good time time playing these sweet profiles. As I recorded I saved the profiles with the effects that I added and these has been sent back to LRS, who might add them to the official profile pack.

Clean Gain Kemper Bundle by ToneCrate (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

It’s time for another Kemper Rig Showcase and here’s TonCrate’s Febuary Kemper bundle – Clean Gain! So previsously there has been a slight focus on the heavy stuff but here is the opposite just as the bundle name suggests. Here you will get a bunch of profiles on the low gain area, from clean to crunch I’d say.

As ToneCrate recommended I have added in the Electro Harmonix Soul Food overdrive. For those of you who don’t know about the Soul Food it’s practically a clone of the Klon Centaur – that means transparent overdrive. And what’s that? Well, I’d say it takes what you got soundwise and boosts that without too much coloration. It doesn’t mess around too much with EQ.

And that’s about it, hope you liked the video! Feel free to support my channel by a subscription… we’re closing in on 2000 sub’s, once that is reached there will be a (pedal) giveaway to celebrate. Thank you goes out to all the already subscribers!!

Fulltone OCD Overdrive (Stomp pedal test)

Fulltone OCD Overdrive (Stomp pedal test)
Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar

It’s time to take a closer look at the Fulltone OCD, is there any guitarist that haven’t heard about this pedal? It should “replicates the dynamics and harmonics of a fully-wound tube amplifier with its typical output stage distortion” and I’ve seen it described both as an overdrive and a distortion effect. I guess it has the characteristics of both.

I guess the Fulltone OCD doesn’t need any closer introduction, it’s a classic pedal and for more info check out the link to Fulltone’s webpage provided below. I’ll add a link to a fantastic video from ToneJunkie that compares all the different versions of the OCD, go see it – it’s really worth the time watching it.

Hope you liked this video – feel free to give me some support by subscribing! And you know what comes next… that’s right, a Fat Big Thanks to all you who do sub!!

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar

Time for another Rig Showcase and now it’s to take a closer listen to ToneCrate’s January 2019 Kemper profile pack! This time around they have work together with Justin aufdemkampe (Miss May I) to create some fat and juciy tones for your pleasure…

ToneCrate has a subscription service that works pretty much like those lootcrate’s where you get different stuff sent home every month, but with ToneCrate you’ll get a bunch of Kemper profiles. These profiles are created in co-op with an artist and it’s not too expensive and quite fun and interesting to try out. For more info about ToneCrate follow the link provided below. If you don’t want to subscribe you can buy separate packs as well.

This pack has 10 profiles for your Kemper from some different amps and well, it is on the heavier side of things. Take a look and a listen, sure sounds good to me!

ReVerend G 120 Experiment by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

ReVerend G 120 Experimentby Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Let’s take a look… or rather a listen to Live Ready Sound’s The ReVerend G 120 – a profile pack for your Kemper Profiling Amp that recreates the sound from a Revv Generator 120 MKII!

The Revv Generator 120 is a 120 watts tube amp with 4 channels – clean, crunch and two variable gain channels. You can operate it at 10 or 120 watts, it has MIDI capabilities and each channel has a 3-band EQ. For more details on the actual amp see the link to Revv amps further down this description.

The profile pack from LRS so far contains 141 profiles, created with a bunch of speakers and microphones – it also contains 10 effects presets from Have Guitar, and that is what I based this Rig Showcase on. So you’ll get to hear the profiles as they come and then with my changes applied (and this FX addon is now included in the official pack). In addition the full pack also contains an additional 35 effects presets from Eltzejupp so yeah, you’ll have some fun going through this great pack!

Marshall DSL20H – Test & Review!

Marshall DSL20H – Test & Review!
…by Have Guitar

In this video we’ll take an extensive look at the Marshall DSL20H tube amplifier – can you get a better tube amplifier in this price range?! This little head can do most styles and let have a look at the spec’s:

2 Channels (Classic gain and Ultra gain)
20W switchable to 10W
Outputs: 3 x 1/4″ (16/8 Ohm load) + 1 x 1.35 mm jack emulated line out
Inputs: 1 x 1/4″ instrument jack, 1 x 1,35 mm jack aux in, footswitch
FX Loop w Send/Return
Digital Reverb built-in
Preamp valves: 3 x ECC83
Power amp valves: 2 x EL34
Weight: 9.7 kg / 21 lbs

So this is small and light, can go from close to clean to screaming gain, has loads of EQ options and can be bought brand new for less than 390 euros / 440 USD. I was totally impressed by this little power pack and would not mind getting one myself.

Would also like to throw in that this was the first time we recorded at this location, the light was worse than I though so next time I’ll bring my studio lights. Also the sound is picked up as we hear it in the room but, next time I think still I should place the microphones close to the speaker.

ToneCrate December 2018 Jamie King Pack (Kemper profiles demo)

ToneCrate December 2018 Jamie King Pack (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Apparently the bonus Sundays continues! This is the December 2018 pack from ToneCrate and it’s a (mostly) heavy pack created together with the guitarist Jamie King! The pack contains 25 Kemper profiles all in all, most of them are high gain stuff but there are also a couple of bass profiles and some clear to crunch profiles here.

In my ears this is a great sounding pack that contains profiles from various amps like Marshall JCM800 & 900, Peavey 5150, Ampeg SVT and more.

ToneCrate is a subscription service where you will get a new profile pack for your Kemper every month and every month a new artist is featured. Pretty much like the “LootCrates” where you get a box sent home with different trinkets every month. It’s not that expensive (and if you pay for a year it’ll be cheaper) so go have a look at ToneCrates webpage for more information. Just wanna add I didn’t find much info on Kings bands when I Googled them, so I don’t know if my search-fu is bad perhaps…

VX the Kraken by Official Victory Kemper Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)

VX the Kraken by Official Victory Kemper Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

So here it is – the last Sunday Special Rig Showcase of the official Victory Kemper profiles Rig Showcase! And last out is the heaviest of these official packs from Victory amps – VX the Kraken! The profiles are created by Rabea Massaad, if you haven’t heard of him check him out on Youtube – a great guitarist well worth following! He was also involved in designing the original amp.

VX the Kraken is small 50 watts amp with two channels; Gain I is classic British-inspired rhythm tones and Gain II is tight, aggressive American high-gain grind. The profiles contains clean to quite heavy sounds (though I must say I have heard harder and heavier sounds from the Kraken than what these profiles brings… possibly they can be tweaked more toward that sound if that is what you are looking for).

And there we have it! I do hope you liked this demo & thanks for watching Have Guitar! Support my channel by subscription – it’ll be much appreciated! To all old and new subscribers – Thank You, your support keeps me motivated!

The Gentleman (MESHUGGAH amp) by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

The Gentleman (MESHUGGAH amp) by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Here’s a “bonus” Rig Showcase – Live Ready Sounds The Gentleman! Could it be that LRS is the first profiler to do the Fortin Meshuggah Signature amplifier? I think so! And it’s not only expensive (3333.33 USD!) it is also limited to 100 amps made. Ain’t that crazy?!

So I got a hands on tryout of the first release from LRS for this pack and what can I say? Love it. I have no idea how the profiles stands against the original amp as I’m likely to never even be in the same room as one, but the profiles have a great tone – it’s brutal, it’s metal, they djent – and much more! As I’m writing this the pack has not gone on sale yet but it should any day now.

Thanks for spending your time with Have Guitar, much appreciated! If you liked the video – feel free to subscribe to my channel, your support is needed! A Big Thanks goes out to all you subscribers – you rock!
