Purple Platypus Octidrive MKII Limited Edition by Way Huge/Jim Dunlop (Guitar effect pedal)

Another pedal frenzy from Have Guitar – let’s have a closer look at the Purple Platypus Octidrive MKII from Way Huge! So this pedal is based on the Way Huge Red Llama overdrive but with an added frequency doubler and a hi-cut-control that will let you fine tune your sound.

This pedal is limited to 1000 units but I really don’t know if that is a really small number of units when it comes to pedals… But, it isn’t listed at Way Huge webpage so that makes me guesstimate it’s a lesser production.

So what can you expect from this pedal? Well it’s basically a fuzz but with that doubler it’s kinda different from a any ordinary fuzz. When you hit the gas with this pedal you might notice that it doesn’t always handle multiple notes at the same time too well. Or maybe you’ll like that, who knows?! For me it’s not too useful on an everyday basis but you can get some really fat weird noises with it, that might have it’s place where you’re going.

That’s it, hope you liked this demo/review! If you wanna support my channel – subscribe! Anyways, thanks for watching!! A very sincere Thanks to all you who subscribes!!!

Flux-Drive by Mesa Boogie (Pedal review / test / demo)

Review by Have Guitar!

The Mesa Flux-Drive is the overdrive pedal for those who want more of all the best things from an overdrive, according to Mesa themselves. Is that so? The Cambridge dictionary states that the word “flux” means “continous change”. Well, that makes no sence what so ever…

As an overdrive the Flux-Drive surely makes the job you’d expect from an overdrive, it really helps shaping what you already got soundwise rather than recreating the tone. The bass and treble controls gives you additional control over the sound, which is always welcome. These EQ controls are just set enough according to me, they will change the sound but not drastically so.

Also I must add that some of the sound demos in the video actually sounds better now, when listening to the video than what I felt about them whilst playing. The Flux-Drive was nice pedal to try out but for me personally – it is not a pedal that I will buy in the future (the pedal in the video was borrowed).

Yngwie Malmsteen Overdrive by Fender (pedal review/demo)

Yngwie Malmsteen Overdrive by Fender (pedal review/demo)

This video is a review / demo of the Fender Yngwie Malmsteen overdrived pedal. I suppose everyone knows who Yngwie is, a guitarist who was part of creating what became called “neoclassic metal” and he has had a huge influence on guitar players all over the world. So… this is his signature overdrive pedal!

Now I say it in the video and I’ll repeat it here; don’t expect me playing anything like Yngwie in this video! I’m not that kind of guitarist and frankly I don’t wanna be (said without bashing the man himself in any way!).

As for the pedal it-self – it has true bypass, metal casing, can be run with a 9-volt-battery or external power supply. It has only two controls – volume and gain. I know some people consider this the best overdrive out there, everyones taste is different! Me, I like it, but it is not my favourite overdrive pedal. Let me know in the comments what You think about it!!

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!!

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!

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 Coast Killer by Live Ready Sound – Revisited – (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

This is Live Ready Sounds Kemper profile pack West Coast Killer revisited! This profile pack has grown exponentially since I did the first demo of it and it’s certainly worth another video as it now contains 300 profiles for your Kemper!

The West Coast Killer pack aims to recreate the sound from a Fortin Cali, according to the Fortin website “a 3-channel tube amp bringing you sweet lush cleans to crushing gain brutality”. Read more about the original amp over at Fortins website, link included below.

The profile pack, as said, contains 300 profiles created with a bunch of different settings, gain stages, cabs, microphones and bunch of different drives. It’s a crazy display of versatility! I have tried to pick out a varied bunch of profiles to display what this pack has offer and yet there is more once you have this pack available in your profile collection.

I do hope you like this demo, thanks so much for watching. If you wanna support my channel, please subscribe, comment and like! To you who do subscribe – thanks, it is really appreciated!

Dirty Surly by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Just decided to release this video today as it’s the last day of my vacation. Not that I wanna celebrate that but… well, here we go!

Well, I’m pretty sure I call this pack ‘Dirty Shelly’ or something like that in the video but the correct name is of course Dirty Surly! And watta pack it is! I was very impressed by the tone you could squeeze out from this ToneJunkie release – and it sound great with that overdrive, Sweet Cream, and reacts very nice when you push back the volume control of your guitar!

So, this pack aims at recreating the tone from a Friedman Dirty Shirley (see a link provided below), all I can say is I would looooove to do some reviews of the real thing when it comes to Friedman amplifiers. More or less every Kemper profile pack of Friedman’s are very impressive and the real deal would be a dream to play!

The original amp (40 watt) was designed for those looking for a classic rock tone, think Marshall JTM45 but with some extra gain available a’la Friedman. I’d say that is quite clear while playing with these profiles. It’s a profile pack that is up to par with what you can expect from ToneJunkie – bleeping good!

I do hope you like this demo – if you wanna support one guitar lunatic from Sweden (that’s me!) then subscribe to Have Guitar! My eternal gratitude to all You who already subscribes – Thank You! Watch out for a new video every Thursday!

Fuchs ODS SLX by Pete’s Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

A new Rig Showcase and this time it’s time for Pete’s Profiles Fuchs ODS SLX! This is a fairly big pack with 60 Kemper profiles that recreates the sound from a Fuchs ODS SLX Concert 75. About the amp itself I don’t know much but the profiles sure sound good. The range from crisp breaking up to almost fat fuzz style tones. No lack of variation here!

Seems to me the Fuchs amps are considered ’boutique’ – which most likely means they are handmade and quite expensive. So what, isn’t the perfect tone worth it? Yes, it is. Anyways, this pack give you an opportunity to try out an amp that you not even see at your local music store and that is a great thing. Well, you know, might not be the real deal but as close as it currently gets.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar – hope you like this demo! A subscription to the channel will be most appreciated. To you who subscribe – Thank You!!!
