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.

Full OC vs Fulltone OCD|Kemper Profiling Amp

So this has been out some time, the Full OC overdrive effect in the Kemper Profiling Amp but I wanted to wait until I had an actuall Fulltone OCD pedal to compare it with. Also the title is slightly misleading as this video is not only comparing the emulated pedal to the real deal, it’s also a sound demo of how the Full OC can sound.

When it comes to the actual part of the Full OC vs Fulltone OCD, I decided to make it like a blind test. That way you can test your own ears and see what you think about it… Don’t forget to check out the video index if you wanna skip to any specific part of the video!

Anyways, thanks for watching and I do hope you liked the video! If you wanna support my channel – subscribe! A Big Fat Thank You to all of You who do!!!

Top 5 Kemper profile packs of 2020

Another year passed so it’s time to chose the five best packs of Kemper profiles that I have demoed here on Have Guitar! Or is that Top 6…? Kinda, as I have included a “bonus pack” that was really worth mentioning.

I say it in the video but it’s worth repeating; it is ridiculously hard to pick five pack out of the 35 or so profile pack that I have featured during 2020. All of them have had something that appeals to me in one way or another. Perhaps that’s a testimony of the quality you should expect from a commercial profile pack these days!

Well, that is it for this year, let’s wrap up 2020 and hope for a better 2021! I wish You a Happy New Year and I hope this evening will be great for You and your loved ones… See ya next year!!

Cameroon CCV by Mattfig (Kemper profiles demo)

JTM45 by Mattfig (Kemper profiles demo)

Is it a bird? Or a plane?! No, it’s Mattfigs new Kemper profile pack – the JTM45! Based on a classic Marshall amplifier model this is bound to give you a genuine Marshall sound. The first iteration of the Marshall came out in 1963 (according to Wikipedia, Marshall claims 1962!), more or less copying the Fender Bassman. Now that is a cool amp but Marshall is Marshall, like it or hate it!

You will find a good variation in this profile pack, if I should give you my personal recommendation it is to try raising the Clarity (amp)parameter. That is not exclusive for these profiles – many times when I feel I am a bit disatisfied with a profile, if the Clarity parameter is set to zero; boosting it gives a good return in many cases.

Well that is it. I do hope you like the video, if you do (and even if you don’t!) feel free to support this little independent Swedish channel with a subscription. Thank you to all of you who already do. Close to 3000 subscribers? I didn’t believe I would get 100 even, when I started this channel! You’re all awesome!

West Avalon by Mattfig (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Time for Have Guitar Rig Showcase #2:20 and here’s a rare beast profiled; West Laboratories Amplifiers Avalon by Mattfig! This pack packs some serious vintage raw power and brings 131 profiles (both studio and direct).

So what about the amp behind this sound? Well, it’s West Amps and it’s kinda hard finding much information about them. These amps were built by David West and made their clame to fame by being used by Grand Funk Railroad (on their first four albums).

West stopped making these amps full-time at the end of the 70’s and by the end of the 80’s he closed business to go on other ventures. Or did he? I have found other sources that states he left the business already in 1972 and that reissues of the classic West amps were launched around 2013. I don’t know which of the above is true, the information is scarce…

Anyways, this pack recreates the sound from a West Avalon amp, 50 watts and I would say it covers all lot of ground… nice warm cleans up to quite heavy (pedal boosted) tones.

There we go! Hope you enjoyed this video, if you wanna support my channel please subscribe! Thanks to all of you who already do!

SLX900 by Mattfig (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

Another ‘bonus video’ – and it’s a also a brand new pack from Mattfig – the SLX900. This Kemper profile pack recreates the sound from a Marshall JCM900 SL-X and you’ll get 30 studio profiles and 10 direct profiles.

The amp seems to be very much about high gain and as such you will get some fat tones with that classic Marshall sound included. All in all a good pack of beefy sounds that you might not wanna miss out on…
