The Satchurator is first in a series of stompboxes in collaboration with the guitar icon 13/03/08
VOX Amplification has introduced the Satchurator , the first in a series of guitar pedals in an ongoing collaboration with guitar icon Joe Satriani.
Drawing on Joe Satrianiâ€™s knowledge accumulated from decades of groundbreaking performances, both live and in the studio, the Satchurator has been designed to Satrianiâ€™s exact specifications. Vox tell us that the Satchurator produces Satrianiâ€™s signature tone and adds new features and improvements never before combined in a distortion pedal.
After almost a year of painstaking experimentation and road testing, Satriani and the VOX R&D team discovered the secrets to capturing the ultimate distortion tone in a modern-day pedal. They say that the Satchurator is capable of very high gain levels, but operates more quietly and musically than other modern distortion pedals.
It also preserves the tone and pick-attack of the guitarist plugging into it, regardless of style, from subtly distorted blues tones through classic rock and shred. The result, say VOX, is a professional-quality pedal that recaptures sought-after vintage and modern sounds in a powerful, versatile and extremely musical pedal design.
Satch and Satchurator
Joe Satriani had this to say, â€œThe Satchurator is the most musical, most dynamic, multi-function distortion pedal Iâ€™ve ever played through. This little red box is a monster tone generator. Following my specifications without compromise, and adding design innovations I never thought possible, the Vox team has delivered exactly what I need for the stage as well as the studio: a distortion pedal that responds to my touch, and produces a big, natural, harmonically rich tone compatible with any guitar/pedal/amp configuration.â€� Pricing and Availability:
