DSL20 HR by Marshall Amps|Review & Sound demo

Let’s have closer look at the Marshall DSL20HR… again. Last time, it was just me and a buddy having at it in the rehearsal room. This time I have mic’ed the amp and will go through all the controls in more detail.

When it comes to record an amp through microphones I am the first one to confess that I am very far from being any good it. Might be practise will make perfect, who knows?! With that said, it came out pretty good besides the high-gain stuff, that feels a bit over-saturated compared to “the real sound”. Maybe it’s the proximity effect? I just dunno…

Anyways, the Marshall DSL20HR is, according to me, a fantastic little amp. It just sounds great and of course it sounds like a Marshall. The two channel is really separated with the ‘classic gain’ goes from close to clean to classic rock/hard rock gain, the ‘ultra gain’ goes from gain to metal. So, if you’re looking for a good amp for a nice, tame clean tone – look somewhere else.

Hope you liked the video and for future adventures – subscribe to Have Guitar! I will be grateful!!

LC-107S Love Rock by Tokai|First Impression

Here’s my first impression video of the Tokai LC-107S. Tokai Guitars as it’s known in out part of the world (actually the name is Tokai Gakki Company) was started 1947 but didn’t start manufacturing electric guitars until 1975. Tokai is part of those Japanese brand known as “lawsuits guitars” due to the fact that they produced copies of American brand models.

From the beginning the Tokai Less Paul model was called “Reborn Old” then changed to “Les Paul Reborn” but in the 80’s the name landed as “Love Rock”, a name that is commonly used nowadays. Generally if you search for opinions about Tokai you will find positive views.

So, I first heard about Tokai in the mid 2000’s and have been looking for an opportunity to try them out since then… No luck as I have never seen one in a Swedish store. And as my old Gibson Les Paul needs some expensive fixes I took the leap and ordered a new one from Finland! The LC-107S seems to be, as I say in the video, the low end of the high end Tokai’s. Still it’s around 1460 Euro’s (or about 1740 USD) so it’s not low budget buy.

A full review of this Tokai will come when I have had some time to really try it out, until then you will have to settle for this first impression. Of course it will pop up in various videos as time goes by.

Thanks for watching, hope you had some use for this lesson! If you wanna support my channel and see more content – subscribe! You can use the link provided below! To you who subscribe – Thanks a bunch!!!

Odyssey Boundary Series by FGN Guitars|Review|Sound demos

Review of the S-style FGN (Fujigen) Odyssey from the Boundary series, equipped with a Fujigen humbucker and two single-coils. It’s not an expensive guitar at just above 700 USD, but it’s not the absolute low end of the budget guitars.

The Fujigen Osyssey comes with a body of Japanese basswood, Gotoh tuners and coiltap for the humbucker, which is a nice feature. It weighs in on approximately 3.4 kg (~7.5 lbs), comes in two colors and is stringed with D’Addario EXL110 (.010-.046).

So for this review|demo I have used both my Kemper and the Marshall DSL20HR, so you’ll get both sounds from both the digital and the analogue world… I’ve also arranged the sound demos after type and source; see the index provided below.

Grindmachine by Audio Assault (Review / Sound demo)

A closer look at the VST amp sim Grindmachine from Audio Assault! I stumbled across an ad on Facebook where I saw this for sale – only 3.99 USD. That’s worth a try, I thought to myself and how right was I!

Grindmachine comes with 15 different amps and 22 different cabs, it’s available for both Windows and Mac (in both 32 and 64 bits versions!). I’d say if you are looking for soft nice sounds… just forget about it. This is fist-to-your-face-hard metal high-gain stuff! And it sounds good!!

For those who wonders how it was recorded… Guitar > Sound card > Reaper. Screen capture by OBS studio.

That’s it! Hope you’ll like the video and subscribe if you wanna support Have Guitars future video’s! A special, big and fat Thanks to all you who subscribes!!

Revalver 4 by Peavey – First impression/Demo/Review

Time to have a look at another “guitar software” – Revalver 4 from Peavey. Now this has been out for a long time, at least since 2014 from what I can tell. Still worth it? Could be.

So, Revalver 4 features most of what you should expect from a modern software for guitarists; you have a multitude of amp sim’s, pedals, rack units and cabs to choose from and add to that, they are highly customizable. You can combine amps with cabs, choose what microphone to use and the placing of that mic and there is also the possibility to add 3rd party VST plugins via a hosting component.

Revalver 4 is available for both Windows and Mac, it can be run both as a VST plugin or standalone. If you wanna buy it; the fully fledged Peavey Revalver 4 producer pack comes at 99.99 USD or you could buy an update from Revalver 3 for 49.99 USD. There’s an option to buy more amps, pedals etc if you fancy that, personally I would rather have seen that included or added as free updates but that is my personal opinion…

Thanks for watching Have Guitar, hope you’ll like the video. If you wanna support the channel – subscribe! Thanks ever so mch to all of you who already doing that!!!

TH-U by Overloud – Demo/Review

Time for a review and demo of Overloud TH-U! TH-U is a software that holds almost everything a guitarist (and a bassist) could ask for – amplifiers (authorized models of real amps as well), cabinets, up to 4 out of 18 different microphones on the cab’s, effects, possibility to tweak the amps in high detail, rig player (kemper-like!) and more! It’s available for both Apple and Windows user, works on many different DAW:s and can also be run as a standalone software!

Pfew, that is a lot! But does it play well? That is the question that I am trying to work out in this review/demo video. It’s a looong video so I have included an index, see further down this description. And still I could have made it longer as there are some features I haven’t included like the built-in looper, the Amp Tweak technology and more. This is more like an overview where I really more concentrate on how it sounds with plenty of sound demos thrown in.

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!!

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.

Riot Drums by Ugritone (Review – Demo – Showcase)

Video by Have Guitar!

Riot Drums from Ugritone is a 64-bit VST/VST3/AU/AXX plugin, inspired by the classic 90’s hard core albums. This drum plugin has many great features like adjustable mics (close, room close/far, overheads…), great routing possibilities and freely adjustable midinotes for the drums.

In this video we’ll go through this drum plugin; looking at the features but of course giving some sound examples as well, standalone as well as “in the mix”. (By the way, the sound of the guitars in the song featured in the video comes from Kemper profiles from ReampZone, bass was recorded with a profile from Live Ready Sounds Traced Bass for Kemper.)
