VOX Satchurator Joe Satriani Signature Drive.
Drawing on Joe Satriani’s knowledge accumulated from decades of groundbreaking performances, both live and in the studio, Vox unveils a breakthrough in guitar tone – The Satchurator distortion pedal. Designed to Satriani’s exact specifications, the Satchurator produces Satriani’s signature tone and adds new features and improvements never before combined in a distortion pedal.
In 2008, 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. 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 with the “Input Clipping” system, regardless of style, from subtly distorted blues tones through classic rock and shred. The result is a professional-quality pedal that recaptures sought-after vintage and modern sounds in a powerful, versatile and extremely musical pedal design.
From smoky blues to screaming leads, the Satchurator delivers rich analog distortion, with all of its creamy warmth. Gain, Tone and Volume knobs let you dial in your signature sound quickly. The dynamic circuitry preserves the essence of your sound, even as you turn down the volume of the guitar feeding into it. A pad switch has been thoughtfully added, allowing you to use the Satchurator with other hi-gain pedals – without adding noise or clipping artifacts. But there’s more, literally. When you need it most, stomp down on the More switch and take your tone over the top.
