Super Octaver OC-3 by BOSS|Guitar pedal review & Demo

Let’s have a closer look at the Boss Super Octaver OC-3, why don’t we? With three modes that also includes a drive/fuzz mode you do get some more variation in this stomp… Some will like it and some will not, it’s just that effect an octaver has on people I guess.

The Super Octaver OC-3 has one in for guitar and one for bass, so of course I test both even though I don’t really know why you wanna use an octaver for the bass (the sub-bass audience boo’s wildy). And just because I love it so much I also add the Morley Bad Horsie 2 wha – just to make fun even funner.

A big thanks for watching this video. If you wanna see me grow as a guitarist, hopefully, and support that (eventual) progress – subscribe! As always – T H A N K S – to all my subscriber so far, you’re the Best!

Dr. D MiniStomp by Harley Benton|Pedal review & demo

Time for another pedal frenzy and let’s continue with the Harley Benton MiniStomp series – Dr. D! This is a mellow overdrive that should sound like the famous Dumble amps, well, let’s keep that anticipation level low now.

Not that it sounds bad but I always doubt it when a pedal is said to emulate a very expensive rare amp. Heck, I’m dubious even if it’s supposed to emulate a cheap common amplifier!! So let’s put that aside and just have a listen to how it sounds – good in my humble opinion.

Also to add, seems these inexpensive pedals are selling like crazy over at Thomann. This pedal is currently not available, among many others of the ministomp series. But I’m guessing it will be again in the future.

DSL20HR by Marshall|Lined recording

Demo of how the Marshall DSL20HR tube can sound when do a lined recording. In this video I record the Marshall DSL20 both through the emulated out and the FX Loop send. For the latter I use some IR:s (cabinett files) becasue otherwise it would sound like crap.

That’s is really just what this video is about, and it’s actually my first try… it’s how it sounds without any after production, except for adding those IR:s for the FX Loop recordings of course.

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!!

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…

Marshall JVM410H by Radek|Kemper profiles demo

Got a mail from a guy called Radek who asked if I wanted to test/demo his Marshall JVM410-profiles. Didn’t expect anything but was positively surprised! I like these profiles a lot so, well, here’s the video of them!

What Marshall themselves say about this amp: ” This mighty 100W head has every trick in the book up its sleeve and simply can’t be beaten, with three modes available on each of the four channels. ”

Are you interested in buying these profiles? There is information in the video about how to do it, it comes in at around 00:24. Just don’t wanna print his mail here for various reasons, maybe I’m a bit overprotective but… but what!

So, thanks for watching! If you wanna support my follies go ahead and click the subscribe-link provided below. As always a very big Thanks to all you who sub!!!

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!

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!!
