    Distortion Pedal Joe Satriani signature
    Tone controls, gain, volume
    Selector "pad" which preserves the dynamics of the pedal when placed behind a wah
    Switch "More" for more gain
    Robust metal housing
    Nice red finish with knobs "chicken head"

    Very good build quality and great price (bought € 85 on a well-known German website)

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use, plug into the clean channel of an amp (preferably tube, but I'll come back ...)
    The manual is not essential, little more is found in the setting used by Joe (which is perfect, for once I find a recommended setting that sounds really :))

    SOUND QUALITY

    The manual is not essential, little more is found in the setting used by Joe (which is perfect, for once I find a recommended setting that sounds really :))

    SOUND QUALITY

    Here are the most important: the Son!
    Well it's a signature pedal therefore necessarily typical ... and that's exactly what I wanted, the sound of Satriani of the great time, that he has now found since he came back to Marshall! (I was not a fan of any sound he had with his peavey jsx, more modern but downright colder ...)
    Plugged into a clean amp Marshall typed lamps with an Ibanez JS 1000 it sounds warm, full sound enough, surprising for a distortion pedal in ... on the other hand I've been testing in a small combo modeling, it does not make all the same, its just a little while to narrow ... or the importance of testing this pedal on your gear before you buy it because the sound quality depends a lot on what it is connected!

    In terms of gain, it largely what it takes to play satriani, but mostly it sustain ... something that I just have not found with most pedals I've tried or owned!
    The pedal is silent with the gain until 14h after it blows a little, I use it in the loop of a boss ns-2 which completely eliminates this breath.

    The tone knob is very (too?) Reagent. Its range is roughly between 9am (satch boogie) and 11 (crushing day), below it is too dark, too loud above.

    The switch is more useful to have a surplus of gain medium and in the transition from rhythm to solo.

    In terms of versatility, it remains in the rock / instrumental rock records, do not expect to play metal with it has a lot of gain but rather voicing his medium is not suitable ;)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have this pedal for a few hours, and it has inspired me to post a review live as I liked it (although the stuff I've seen past lol)
    To compare several other pedals I've owned or had a test: ds1 boss (or never understood was the sound of Satriani in there ...), different blackstar (DistX, dual HT, HT not metal ... bad at all, a very good rhythmic sound but lacked a little something for his lead), Wampler Pinnacle (not bad, but a little synthetic I preferred the sound of the distortion channel of my amp), I find the Satchurator more credible and a good complement to its saturated my jvm!

    Nickel hardware, very good. No breath, knobs that respond exactly as desired.

    UTILIZATION

    config could not be more simple, you plug your sound you seek and hop is ok!

    Ah yes, there is a small manual, I have not read the thing is not helpful.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Top quality in every respect.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Few months of use, a good rate of a little more than 100 euros, but it's worth it if you want quality.

    Yes I do it again this choice.

    A truly versatile distortion and singing.

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple, this being so, we must understand that our friend Joe a key of its own uses two delay simultaneously, and the rest lark! Short n not imagine her just have her with it.

    SOUND QUALITY

    C is I would say that it was made by a musician for musicians.
    The highs are beautiful. Tone The minimum gives the impression of playing a vox lamp.
    Harmonics kinds alone ... I play a lot of blues and good old rock well retro
    When I play with a bit more of a long delay to one enters the university of satch and c is really nice.
    I play it with a Parker fly and a custom fender strat, peavey branch or on a turn, or a Laney VC15.

    J QQE have another distortion including a French handmade ..... arf
    This one is really serious it gives you the impression of having the distortion of a big lamp pushed into your little house amp, c that's how she was thinking of aillor.
    Tien as I plug in my iPad to save m garage band!
    If she had a fault it would be that it can not be just the overdrive, drive min.
    Now it is found to occaz everywhere, go for it! The real gear for 50 euros c is superb.

  • Versatile Distortion Pedal for Modest Price

    Vox SatchuratorPublished on 09/20/12 at 15:52
    A signature collaboration between the legendary Joe Satriani and Vox, The Satchurator is housed in a durable, sparkly crimson metal case.Two modes labeled ON and MORE, along with Drive, Tone, and Volume controls that affect both modes. Circuit is pure solid-state analog, utilizing a familiar classic distortion circuit with a few tweaks according to Joe's specifications.

    A "pad" switch is also included, which is described by Vox as a way to maximize dynamics of bright guitars or effects placed before the Satchurator. I run my setup fairly dark, so perhaps that's why I noticed no audible effect on the tone when it was engaged.

Circuit is pure solid-state analog, utilizing a familiar classic distortion circuit with a few tweaks according to Joe's specifications.

    A "pad" switch is also included, which is described by Vox as a way to maximize dynamics of bright guitars or effects placed before the Satchurator. I run my setup fairly dark, so perhaps that's why I noticed no audible effect on the tone when it was engaged.

    Controls are Creme-colored Chicken head knobs, allowing for precise positioning and a classic look. LED's are reasonably visible, though perhaps not on an outdoor stage during daylight hours.

    UTILIZATION

    The setup of this pedal is extremely simple. The Satchurator, like all Distortion or overdrive effects, is best run in front of the amplifier (as opposed to in the effects loop). GAIN controls the level of distortion in the pedal (though let's be clear, gain is usually not equivalent to distortion), TONE controls the amount of treble response, and VOLUME controlling...you guessed it... the volume of the signal at the pedal's output. In this way, it's set up much like a certain classic yellow distortion pedal for which it is reputedly designed after.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I tried the Satchurator through the clean channel of an Egnater Renegade 65 head using a Charvel So-Cal Model 1 with stock Dimarzio Evolution/Tone Zone humbuckers. The Satchurator does not appear to color the tone of the guitar and amp when bypassed, and when engaged it dishes up copious amounts of distortion and harmonics without changing the base tone of your setup.


    The MORE switch enacts an instantaneous boost of distortion, which is most evident when the Gain is set at noon or below. This allows a nice instant-access setup to crunchy rhythm tones and searing lead tones without adjusting the gain. When the GAIN is maxed, however, what I encountered was a slight push over the edge which resulted in too much distortion that compromised clarity and cut.

    The Satchurator has the ability to be EXTREMELY bright, so judicious use of the TONE control in conjunction with your amp's own treble settings is mandatory. Bright switches are the enemy here.


    OVERALL OPINION

    The Satchurator is tremendously versatile. Dialing back the GAIN control elicits some classic plexi-like sounds, while cranking it brings out the Satchurator's true intended nature, reproducing Satch's classic precision high gain tone with a mere hint of fuzz.
    The pedal exhibits a rather scooped midrange, which may not be favorable for fans of mid-heavy, overdriven Marshall-style crunch. The pedal does, however, a fine job of illuminating cleanly laid, virtuosic single-note and lead passages, lathering on the sustain and harmonics that helped make so many of Joe's compositions memorable.

    For those who value dynamics, the Satchurator has the uncanny ability to render its effect almost inaudible, even at full-bore, when the guitar volume is rolled back. When I turned down the volume on my Charvel, my tone sounded almost completely bypassed. I was thoroughly impressed.

    One as-of-yet unmentioned point of versatility with the Satchurator is how altering the difference between the TONE control on the Satchurator and the treble control on your amp's EQ effects the feel of the pedal. Rolling back the treble on my amp slightly and boosting the pedal's TONE control gave the pedal a more top-end aggressive, modern feel, whereas rolling back the Satchurator's TONE control and boosting my amp's Treble control rendered a more classic feel reminiscent of classic 80's Marshall amps.

    Build quality of the Vox Satchurator is respectable given its price point. I was amused, and slightly bummed, however, to find that upon removing the bottom plate, the footswitches that appeared heavy-duty on the outside gave way to springs that triggered tactile switches on a mounted circuit board. No Carling switches here, folks. But don't let this deter you. If one of the switches ever goes out, or if you desire something more road-worthy, the switches and board are easily replaceable with proper, heavier-duty switches that will accept the flying leads coming off the main circuit board.

    Overall, the Vox Satchurator is an excellent pedal for the price, offering capability, versatility and portability for those who want inspiring rhythm crunch, coupled with blistering throwback high gain tones all in one low-priced package.
