Guitar stuff isn't our usual fare, but we like to throw one in once in a while to see what it's like in the stringed world. Plus we got to work with the talented Rob Chappers, guitarist extraordinaire.
The VOX Satchurator is a collaboration between top guitar legend Joe Satriani and the boffins at VOX, who made this pedal to Joe's specifications. This was no small challenge, aparently it went back and forth many times until it satisfied the "Satch" as he is affectionately known.
In the hands of Mr Rob Chappers, you can see that it is capable of some great tones and as Rob puts it: "It's more like another channel on your amp than a pedal".

Controls for Gain, Tone and Volume
'More' gain boost switch enables two foot-switchable distortion sounds in one pedal. This gain boost is dramatic when gain knob is set low, and is a subtle solo boost when gain knob is set to maximum.
'Pad' switch pads down input to allow for high gain pedals (such as modern wahs) placed before Satchurator. Up is pad 'ON'. Down is pad 'OFF' for full Satchurator effect.
High gain, low noise design provides vintage to modern distortion sounds
Dynamic circuit is highly responsive to rolling off the guitar's volume and preserves the guitar's high end when the volume is rolled off.
