Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz MKIII by Way Huge/Jim Dunlop|Pedal demo/test/review

A fascination for fuzz pedals, that is my condition doc. That’s right and in this video I am going to take dive into the sea of fuzz to examine the Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz MKIII from Way Huge. I still haven’t figured out why it is called a jumbo fuzz when the size of the MKIII is actually smaller than the previous versions? Well, life is full of mysteries…

So fuzz pedals seems seldom to be about a nice sound. Some people might think that distorted guitars are never fun to listen to but a fuzz almost makes it even worse… but still in a good way. They have a broken character to them and they, according to me, make you fight a little to play those shrimps that goes so easy with an overdrive or a distortion pedal. That might be where fun kicks in!

Anyways, I hope you liked this video. I had some problems to fix the sound so that it sound like what I experienced while playing but I think it came out quite well in the end. Still, just because of this I actually bought a ribbon microphone (SE Electronics X1 R) in the hope of fixing that issue for the future…

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.

There you go, I hope you’ll like this video – if you wanna support my channel, feel free to subscribe to the channel… To all my subscribers – Thank You!!!

Turbo Tube Screamer TS9DX by Ibanez (Pedal demo/test/review – Part II)

This is part II of my review/demo of the Ibanez Turbo Tube Screamer TS9DX, I decided to splitt the video in to two parts as it would have become over 40 minutes otherwise… In this part the presets and testing the pedal on the Classic Gain channel of the Marshall DSL20HR, also more singlecoil action here!

The part of the review contains tests of all four different modes (TS9, +, Hot and Turbo) plus I go through the three controls (Gain, Level and Tone), all done on the Ultra Gain channel of the Marshall DSL20HR.

I have included both the mic’ed amp and sound from the room mic’s as I think that gives the most honest sound – they do sound slightly different but I’m not sure it could be done better (ny me!). If you want to see how I set up the mic for the cabinett see the last part, Roundup talk, where I show that with a couple of pix!

Hope you liked this video – feel free to support my channel with a subscription if you wanna see more. A first (of the year) Big Fat Thank You to all you who do subscribe!!

Turbo Tube Screamer TS9DX by Ibanez (Pedal demo/test/review – Part I)

Turbo Tube Screamer TS9DX by Ibanez (Pedal demo/test/review – Part I)

Let’s kick of the new year year with a premier! What’s new, you ask? A pedal frenzy but this time I don’t run the pedal through the Kemper but through my new tube amp – Marshall DSL20HR! Shock, surpize and hurrahs – finally!

So this is the first part of my review of the Ibanez Turbo Tube Screamer TS9DX. When I was editing the video, I decided to split it in two parts when I reached 20 minutes and had about the same amount of material left… I don’t know if that is a good idea or not but I just felt around 20 min’s are enough for one video. This first part contains tests of all four different modes (TS9, +, Hot and Turbo) plus I go through the three controls (Gain, Level and Tone).

I have included both the mic’ed amp and sound from the room mic’s as I think that gives the most honest sound – they do sound slightly different but I’m not sure it could be done better. Part II contains the presets given from Ibanez in the manual and some additional tweaking by me and in Part II I also include the Telecaster so you’ll get sound from both humbuckers and singlecoils.

Hope you liked this video – feel free to support my channel with a subscription if you wanna see more. A first (of the year) Big Fat Thank You to all you who do subscribe!!

69 Silver Lowman by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Here’s another fine pack from ToneJunkie’s neverending effort to profile every amp in the world: 69 Silver Lowman! These profiles aims to recreate the sound from a 1969 Fender Bassman “drip edge”. (And if you like me don’t know what “drip edge” means; it’s a silver lining around the cabinet of the amp).

So this is obviously a vintage amplifier and according to me the Fender Bassman’s are great amps. Not if you wanna do Meshugga (laughs) but I’d say they can handle most musical styles quite well. From sweet clean tone to screaming classic gain! The profile pack comes with 29 profiles; 25 studio and 4 direct’s.

Also, someone might wonder why I’m using the black Gibson SG when I’m doing the “2 guitars, 1 profile” comparision. Well, I recorded the first part with the Yellow SG before I went on vacation… so when I got back home and started recording again, 8-10 days had passed and not really thinking before acting I just picked up the black SG instead of the yellow one. Forgetful? Me?! Nah…!

That’s it – hope you like the video and support ToneJunkie and buy the pack if you like what you hear! If you wanna support me you don’t have to buy anything, just click the subscribe button. A great many thanks to all you who subscribes!!

Black Box MKII by Riot (power supply test / review)

Test / Review by Have Guitar

Need a power supply for your pedals? Short on money? Then the Riot Black Box MKII might be something for you. I got tired of my bulky adaptors that takes up more than one space in the power strip so I went to the local music store to see what they could offer. I had planned to spend some more money but then I got greedy and thought I could try this one out.

Seems like this model is quite new and there is not much info to get about it. Heard a rumour that it might be Harley-Benton who’s making these but that is nothing but a rumour so far. It is made in china and the build of the unit seems more than descent for the price. Metal casing and 10 outs for less than 60 Euros? Great. Have a look at the video for my ‘verdict’.

I certainly hope you will like this video and please do support Have Guitar with your subscription if you do. Just wanna scream Thank You to all you who do subscribe, appreciate it!

Serenity Gain by Live Ready Sound (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Time to take a look at a new profile pack from Live Ready Sound – Serenity Gain! This pack recreates the sound from a Mezzabarba Trinity amplifier – I must confess I had never heard about this brand before! But the Kemper profiles from Live Ready Sound rocks… as always!

So, the original amplifier is a handbuilt three channel 100 watts head. Seems to designed to handle whatever you want, from crystal clear to high gain Nirvana (that’s Mezzabarbas own words!). It’s midi programmable, can hold 48 different settings with 128 presets, FX loop and so. Packed with functonality for sure!

So this profile pack is already massive, counting over 200 profiles for your Kemper! Very cool, sounds great and well… just watch the demo. I hope you’ll dig this demo, feel free to support me with a subscription to Have Guitar! A massive Thanks goes out to all of you who already do!

By the way… I could not watch this video via Chromecast, very confusing! Let me know if anyone else experience similar problems.

Marshall DSL20H – Test & Review!

Marshall DSL20H – Test & Review!
…by Have Guitar

In this video we’ll take an extensive look at the Marshall DSL20H tube amplifier – can you get a better tube amplifier in this price range?! This little head can do most styles and let have a look at the spec’s:

2 Channels (Classic gain and Ultra gain)
20W switchable to 10W
Outputs: 3 x 1/4″ (16/8 Ohm load) + 1 x 1.35 mm jack emulated line out
Inputs: 1 x 1/4″ instrument jack, 1 x 1,35 mm jack aux in, footswitch
FX Loop w Send/Return
Digital Reverb built-in
Preamp valves: 3 x ECC83
Power amp valves: 2 x EL34
Weight: 9.7 kg / 21 lbs

So this is small and light, can go from close to clean to screaming gain, has loads of EQ options and can be bought brand new for less than 390 euros / 440 USD. I was totally impressed by this little power pack and would not mind getting one myself.

Would also like to throw in that this was the first time we recorded at this location, the light was worse than I though so next time I’ll bring my studio lights. Also the sound is picked up as we hear it in the room but, next time I think still I should place the microphones close to the speaker.

Vintage Overdrive by Harley Benton (Thomann) Pedal Test

Vintage Overdrive by Harley Benton (Thomann) Pedal Test
Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

Wow, it’s been way too long since I did a Pedal Frenzy (review) here! So this feature is now back AND in a revamped presentation. I do think this format is better, as it’ll show you in real time exactly what I’m doing with the pedals settings… and yeah, it is a long video and you might or might not like that. I however got tired of some pedal videos where you hardly get to hear the pedal so I set this up with two very different guitars and three different “amps” (Kemper profiles!); Fender Bassman, Revv 120 & the mighty PRS Archon. And I’ve also included an index so you can jump around as you please. In the video that is but sure if you wanna jump around whilst watching this video, go ahead!

I’ve had my eyes on the Harley Benton Vintage Overdrive for quite some time now, actually I heard a lot of good talk about it, from other guitarists. Gotta say after I had a go with it, I was pleasantly pleased with its performance. It’s cheap, it’s green and it’s a Tube Screamer clone – also well built for that sake! In my ears this low budget stomp box sounded much better than one might expect and well… I guess you just have to watch the video to hear it for yourself.
