Tone City pedals unboxing: Golden Plexi, Sweet Cream, Mandragora & Dry Martini

Unboxing by Have Guitar

Here is another pedal unboxing video and time it’s about another batch of Chinese mini pedals, Tone City Golden Plexi, Sweet Cream, Mandragora and Dry Martini. Yeah so I was very impressed by the small Mooer pedals I got and well, I have heard a lot of good things about the Tone City pedals… why not get a bunch of these as well? Said and done and now I have a load of pedals to review!

And that is it. I did toss in some quick sound demos of these pedals as well, just to make the video a little more watchable. Unfortunately you will have to wait awhile for the full-size demo videos even though I’m gonna start recording them as soon as I can.

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Here’s a video that features TMS Profiles new Kemper profile pack – RKR30 – recreating the sound of an Orange Rocker 30 head. This pack contain 40 Merged profiles that according to my opinion really captures that Orange sound – fat and creamy just like you should like it! And… I’ll throw in this video as a “bonus” as it’s also a giveaway! Watch the video to see how to enter – a very Big Thank You to TMS Profiles for letting me do this giveaway.

Deadline for the giveaway:
April 27th 2019, 23:59

Throwing in a footnote here that this is the first video that I have created/edited in Davinci Resolve, a video editing software that is available for free in a light version. It should not make any difference for you as a viewer and the reason for me changing software is that I am tired of seeing the Magix Movie Studio Platinum series not improving with the new versions. And also that I don’t wanna pay for those not so good new versions…

Thanks for watching Have Guitar and the support from you who subscribe is something which I am very grateful for! If you wanna support my little independent channel do subscribe, it’s free! 😉

Schecter E-1 Custom Special Edition VSB (Guitar review)

Guitar review by Have Guitar

High time for a review of the Schecter E-1 Custom Special Edition VSB electric guitar – I’ve had this guitar for about 1½ years now and it’s just time now for a thorough test/review video of it.

In this review video I will go through the specifications, how it is to play and give you loads of different sound demos – see the index below if you wanna go to a special part of this video. There is no information more than the pure spec’s on Schecters webpage but that seems to go for all of their instruments. The E-1 model comes in a few different variations that share the same ‘Explorer/Iceman’ style body. For more info about Schecter Guitars see the link below to the Wikipedia page about Schecter.

Index:
02:38 – Talk: head/tuners, General info etc
03:37 – Clean/low gain sound demos
(ReampZone Killer Cleans, ToneJunkie 3P Double Agent, TMS Profiles 6100 Marshall & ReampZone Freedman JJ100)
07:00 – Talk: neck/fretboard
08:39 – Crunch/mid gain sound demos
(ToneJunkie JMProto1, Live Ready Sound Plexed for Kemper, SinMix SplawnPM, Gold Lion Studio Sovtek Tube Midget 50H & BM Profiles F-man)
13:15 – Talk: body, balance, electronics etc
15:35 – High gain sound demos
(Mbritt Diftwood Mini Nightmare, Live Ready Sound The Gentleman, SinMix 2JpC & Deadlight Studio Piwi Perspective)
17:39 – Conclusion/End words

Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed this video! If you like it and wanna support Have Guitar do gimme a subscription. A big appreciation shout-out to all you who already do!

V90 Mesa MK V by TMS Profiles + Giveaway! (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase and Giveaway by Have Guitar!

Time for another rig showcase and this time it’s the brand new profile pack from TMS Profiles – V90 Mesa MK V! Now this was a pleasure to try out, loads and loads of great sound profiles… and the pack is cheap too! And to add to that, if you watch this video you could have a chance of winning a copy of this profile pack for free! That’s right, TMS Profiles was so kind that they let me giveaway 5 copies of this pack! Ain’t that grand?! So the instructions of getting into the giveaway comes at the end of video.

DEADLINE for this giveaway: 21st of March 2019, 23:59!
(The Winners will be presented in a video a couple of days after the DL!)

The V90 MK V pack comes loaded with 99 merged profiles for your Kemper profiling amp – some of them has effects included from the start and do believe all of them has inactivated effects included. A tip, that I also mention in the video, is to lower the Noise Gate – seems ALL the profiles has quite a high setting and lowering the NG helps to make the tone feel a bit more dynamic in my opinion.

So that is it, I do hope you like the video AND the giveaway – once again thanks to TMS profiles for being so generous!! Also, feel free to sunscribe to Have Guitar to support my channel, it will be much appreciated. And as always to all you subscribing – thanks for Your support!

Gibson Explorer Vampire Blood Moon – Review & Test

Gibson Explorer Vampire Blood Moon – Review & Test
A review by Have Guitar!

They mostly come out at night… mostly… So the Gibson Explorer Vampire Blood Moon is obviously horror inspired, I guess it’s from all those teenage vampire flings that were so popular some years back. This model came out in 2011 and it was a limited run of 400 Blood Moons. Well, the name and the theme of this Explorer might put you off but the guitar itself is really good, plays well and those active Gibson pickups and sounds good with most styles… clean is no problem, add some gain and it responds well all the way up to brutal metal style sounds.

Allright so the Vampire Blood Moon has some features not so common for a stock Gibson Explorer… like the Gibson GEM active pickups and the Schaller Floyd Rose locking system that stands out. And then, as said, the theme of the guitar. Cough, cough…

So for this review I’ve used a slightly different technique than in my previous review videos. Rather than having me reading out all the specifications of the guitar, I’ve included the spec’s together with closeup clips of the Blood Moon during the sound examples. I really think that creates a better flow in the video and if you wanna read all the spec’s of the guitar take a visit at the link provided further down. Feel free to let me know in the comments if you like this new style!

Also note the sound demos are created playing through a Kemper Profiling Amp, unless otherwise stated it’s lined recordings (Kemper-SPDIF-Focusrite Saffire 6i6-Reaper) but I have included some examples described as “In the room” and that means the sound is recorded by microphones in the room, which pretty much sounds like what I am hearing while recording.

Index:
01:43 – ToneJunkie MatchC30 (Matchless amp), clean sound
02:25 – ReampZone Dumble ODS, mid gain
03:03 – TMS Profiles Marshall 6100, mid gain
03:40 – ReampZone Bogner Uberschall Twin Jet, high gain
04:07 – Live Ready Sound Eddied EL34 (5153), mid gain & volume test
06:12 – Blood Moon vs Explorer Tribute 2019 comparison starts
07:20 – BM Profiles F-man Pack (Friedman BE100), mid gain
07:59 – Mbritt Mini Nightmare (Driftwood), high gain
08:51 – Comparison conclusion
10:42 – ReampZone Diezel Einstein, high gain
11:25 – SinMix SplawnPM, high gain
11:57 – Guidorist Pvy JSX 2.0, high gain/backing track

And there we go! I hope you liked my review of the Gibson Explorer Vampire Blood Moon, if you wanna see more and support me feel free to subscribe to Have Guitar! A Big Fat Thanks to all you supporting me through your sub’s!!

6SOS by TMS Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)

6SOS by TMS Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)
Kemper Rig showcase by Have guitar

So here’s a demo of the 6SOS Kemper profile pack from TMS Profiles – and yup, that is of course based on a Peavey 6505 amplifier. And yes again, this is a brute made for harder side of the force. Still it’s a brute made affordable, you can get the 120 watt head for under 1000 euros – and in tube amp territory that ain’t that expensive!

This profile pack comes loaded with 77 studio profiles and 7 direct profiles, profiled using seven different cab’s and some even boosted with TS808 or MXR Badass OD. Variety and brute force joined together, but it’s not all metal… there some cleaner sounds to be found within TMS Profiles pack as well. Anyways, have a look at the video to hear them with you own two ears.
