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?

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.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar – hope you liked this video! If you wanna support the channel – subscribe! A very Big Thanks to my subscribers as always!!

Sweet Cream by Tone City – overdrive pedal review & sound demos

Demo by Have Guitar!

Intrigued by the sound a fellow Swedish guitar player got out of the Tone City Sweet Cream, I just had to get me some of these pedals. He was actually using the Tone City Sweet Cream together with the Tone City Golden Plexi, a great pair! (I do think it was Rob Chapman who started pairing them up!) However this video is just the Sweet Cream, I’ll publish another one with bort later on.

The Sweet Cream is an overdrive pedal that will serve you a fluid and creamy sound. It can do that lovely just breaking up tone but it can also generate some bite – but not like an aggressive metal tone. As mentioned above it works fine together with other pedals as well.

The pedal is small and very easy to use with only three controls – gain, volume and touch. The touch control isn’t like your normal tone control, it alter the sound in a little more complex way. As for the volume control, well it feels like it does more than just alter the volume, higher settings seems to add more bite and punch to the sound.

So the pedal has a simple and effective design and comes at a very affordable price. According to various sources it is based on the Mad Professor Honey Overdrive, so you can compare the price difference yourself… I do wish I had one of those so I could have made a side by side test but unfortunately I don’t.

I hope you like this demo, there will be a bunch more Tone City pedal reviews coming up here at Have Guitar! Feel free to subscribe to Have Guitar!, your support is needed! And as always; Thank You to all you who already subscribes – much obliged!!!
