Boss Katana & Effect Pedals

Boss Katana & Effect Pedals from Have Guitar!

Finally an answer to a question that has been plaguing savvy Internet guitarists since the Boss Katana was released: how does the Katana take pedals? And here is the answer: as any other guitar amplifier. But. If that is not enough for you – ye of doubtful minds – then watch this video.

So yes, in this video I have selected a few gain pedals from my vast collection (read; four out of five pedals) – EHX Green Russian Big Muff (Fuzz) & Soul Food (transparent overdrive), Suhr Riot (Distortion) and the MXR Zakk Wylde Berzerker (Overdrive). They go into the front of the Boss Katana, which is setup with a “sneaky amp”: Clean Twin. And then… noodling is on. Anyways, if you are interesting in a particular pedal here’s a small index for you:

03:32 – Clean Twin w/o pedals as a reference
03:53 – EHX Green Russian Big Muff
05:16 – MXR Zakk Wylde Berzerker
06:27 – EHX Soul Food
08:33 – Suhr Riot

Friday Fun – Unboxing the Neunaber Immerse

Have Guitar! presents a fast n fun Friday video – the unboxing of a Neunaber Immerse. Yes, this is just me babbling away for 10 minutes while unboxing the stomp box – if you think that sounds boring then go and pick another video. (But make sure you pick one from Have Guitar, OK?!)

The test / review will come later, I need some time to test out and get to know this reverb pedal before I do a video about it.

Pedal Frenzy: BOSS PS-3 Digital Pitch Shifter / Delay

Have Guitar proudly presents a new feature on this channel – Pedal Frenzy! Stomp of the Month!

Yep, that right. I’m gonna try to present a demo video with a stomp box at least once a month from now on. I have featured effects pedals before so this is a continued effort but more structured if you like…

First out is the Boss PS-3 Digital Delay / Pitch Shifter. Not a new pedal, rather even a vintage one as I’ve had it since at least the early 90’s. So take a look, a listen to this demo to see how it sounds and how it stands up to modern effects. The Boss PS-3 is still for sale in used condition every here and there so I am pretty sure people are still using it!

05:04 – Mode 1 Delay 32-125 ms
07:49 – Mode 2 Delay 125-500 ms
12:43 – Mode 3 Delay 500-2000 ms
14:12 – Mode 4 Single Pitch Shifter: Detune
16:09 – Mode 5 & 6 Single Pitch Shifter: +/- 2 octaves (Fast & Slow)
18:59 – Mode 7 Single Pitch Shifter: +/- 2 octaves (Inverse)
20:41 – Mode 8 Dual Pitch Shifter: Detune & Detune
22:09 – Mode 9 Dual Pitch Shifter: Detune & +/- 2 octaves
23:01 – End/Conclusion
