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!

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!!!

Another Brown Eye pack?! That’s right, BE100 4.0 from Mattfig is another profile pack for your Kemper based on the Friedman BE-100 amp. A different signal chain used for the profiling process, read more about those details on the link below to Mattfigs webshop.

This is a big pack counting 159 profiles, both studio and direct profiles. In that also 45 profiles ‘dedicated’ for single-coil guitars, a nice feature if you ask me! I’ve tried to make an overview of the pack, even if that is hard with the sheer number of profiles included!

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.

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!!

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!!

Thanks for watching – hope you liked the video! If you wanna support my channel, feel free to use the subscription link provided below. A very Big Thank You goes out to all new and old subscribers, play hard!!
