Gibson Government Series I Explorer – Test / Review

Guitar review by Have Guitar

So… back with Gibson Government Series I and this time it’s of course the Explorer! Again, a fat Thank You to Klas – without him these nice guitars would never had passed through my hands! The Government Series is a limited run that seems to have gone unnoticed even by some guitar connoisseurs that I know, so story in short; the US government siezed some materials from Gibson but the company later got back that and well, they built the Government Series I & II with that wood. Cool story!

So, the specifications of the Explorer is in the video, I think I actually found more on the Explorer than I did on the SG. I believe that while Gibson built 300 SG’s they only built 100 of the Explorers… and that is that. Now watch the video instead, index can be found below. Thanks for watching Have Guitar and I hope you’ll like this video. A big thunderous Thanks goes out to all of you who support me by subscribing!

Behringer FX600 2K Giveaway!

Giveaway by Have Guitar

So the day came – over 2000 subscriptions on Have Guitar! When I started I doubted if I would get more than a 100 sub’s if even that… so my Thanks to all of You for keeping me motivated to keep on playing and doing my videos!!!

As I did some giveaways at 1000 sub’s it seems natural logic to keep up this habit at every 1K increase. My hope is that as the channel grows (hopefully!) I will be able to do better and better giveaways. Free is always nice of course but I’d love to be able to giveaway some more highend stuff in the future!

This time I am giving away the Behringer FX600 – a Digital Stereo Multi-Effects Pedal. Just watch the video and follow the easy instructions and this pedal could be yours with some luck! There is no hidden stuff going on here, you don’t even have to subscribe to the channel to join in… but of course that would be appreciated if you do that! The only reservation I’ll make is that any taxes or fees that is required for winning something that applies to your countries laws, well that is up to you. Also I will mark the package as a gift and I can’t really take any responsibility if something happends to the pack while it’s being shipped.

So c’mon now and watch the video and join in! The deadline for this giveaway is the Friday 26th of April 2019, 23.59.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar and your support, very much appreciated!

FX600 by Behringer (Effect pedal demo)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar

This time around we’ll have a look the guitar multi-effects pedal FX600 from Behringer. This stomp pedal is an alternative for those who are on a tighter budget as it only costs around 20 euros (about 22 USD). The FX600 comes with no less than six different effects: Flanger, Chorus, Phaser, Delay, Tremolo and Pitch Shifter. Maybe I should add this is a 24-bit digital effects pedal as well. (There isn’t much more technical spec’s available than this!)

Alright, so in this demo/review I will playing a Fender Stratocaster, through the Kemper Profiling Amp – the Behringer FX600 is hooked up through the Kempers FX loop. And if you didn’t – the Kemper takes pedals as well as any tube amplifier. I have chosen to use Kemper profiles from ToneJunkie’s 67 Supery Verb pack – Kemper profiles taken from a Fender Super Reverb from 67. I have consistently used one all clean profile and one slightly overdriven profile for all of the effects in the FX600.

Due to user failure all the closeups of the FX600 while playing with the clean profile was shot in timelapse mode, so there will not be any close-ups of that – sorry!

Index:
02:00 – Profiles used
03:19 – Flanger
05:12 – Chorus
07:33 – Phaser
09:23 – Delay
12:23 – Tremolo
15:06 – Pitch Shifter
17:06 – Conclusion
