Vox Amplification expands the Vox & Joe Satriani guitar effects line with the introduction of the Big Bad Wah dual wah pedal and the Time Machine delay pedal.


The Big Bad Wah is a dual wah pedal that enables switchable access to two completely different onboard wahs. Wah 1 is described as "classic Vox through and through, with an unmistakable British tone hot-rodded to Satriani's specifications." Wah 2 can be customized to the user's desired wah tone with the pedal's controls: two selectable inductors (UK-style and U.S.-style), a Drive knob that delivers a wide range of gain, mimicking the Wah 1 gain at its lowest setting and delivering a 10 dB boost as the maximum setting for aggressive overtones and soloing. Wah 2 has a Voice switch that can provide traditional wah voicing, as well as "a dark, resonant tone reminiscent of a vintage talk-box," according to Vox.

The Time Machine offers a mix of tonal colors, wide delay range and musical dexterity that sets it apart from other delays. It comes complete with two delay modes: Mode 1 is "Modern" — mirroring the player's original sound with full clarity and fidelity. Mode 2 is "Vintage" — limiting the frequency response and adding in soft distortion, along with subtle analog-accurate tape warble.
