    - This is a pedal built in collaboration with Vox Satriani. Vox would have responded at the color of his, a former Satriani pedal, and would have slightly expanded the switch "more" and a switch called "pad".
    - In settings nothing complicated, a gain, EQ, and volume, basta.
    - The housing feels solid, is pure metal.
    - The color will appeal to some and maybe not to others.
    - Pedal bill fairly simple and robust, its not feel the gas plant is more one branch, three are adjusted knobs and playing. (Thank goodness we are in the format pedal).

    - Pedal bill fairly simple and robust, its not feel the gas plant is more one branch, three are adjusted knobs and playing. (Thank goodness we are in the format pedal).

    UTILIZATION

    - The manual tweaks used by Satriani, and explains the function of the switch "pad", which is supposed to act on the frequency when it is active and that is coupled with a Satchurator Wah. In short nothing transcendent, I do not see too much difference with or without. The second stompswitch acts more like a boost pedal reserve. Grossmodo when you activate it you will gain and volume gain, but it remains proportional to the basic settings of the pedal. Let me explain, in depth with the settings you will not gain more by activating this switch. By adjusting the pedal against a rhythmic sound, you will easily lead to her, so practice, even very practical.
    - Otherwise you turn the knobs and singing.

    SOUND QUALITY

    - Well I use this pedal with two guitars, a Gibson Les Paul tradition (classic microphone 57) and Jackson Matt Tuck (micro emg 81 + 85), all plugged into a Mesa Transatlantic Ta-15. (I use that Tweed mode for who knows)
    - With Gibson's spit, you can have a bluesy crunch, but must not attack the strings like a horse and push the gain on the pedal. After you come back quickly in the area of ​​distortion, and there ... how to say it is very large, you can cover the Guns, the Maiden, Black Sabbath, Metallica's ...
    The sound is still a bit dirty, like rock n 'roll, in fact it complies with the guitar.
    - With Jackson we are right now in the big sound. To lower the level of distortion in a crunch rather singing, it is best to lower the volume of the Great. By pushing the distortion and no matter the microphone is its own fuse harmonics, mutes the palms are heavy and pests, in short, that dun happiness.
    - The big point with this pedal is the equalizer, I'd say go big ten hours max is more playable, as are more acute, and there made his ears bleed.

    OVERALL OPINION

    - It must be two years that I have at the beginning I bought it for a reserve under the foot to release a solo, after she married not too well with the amp I had at the time (A Marshall). I come from out of the closet because I am the acquisition of Jackson, and I wanted to throw her a "metal" on the TA-15 (which is not at all for her), while waiting for an amplifier. In the end I'm pretty satisfied with the report and I even know if I'll look for another amp. J'obtient the sound is a bit like a Peavey 5150 with still less gain.
    - I would say that overall it is a good pedal, easy to adjust with a guy who's not too respects the guitar used. The gain is sufficient, and the switch "more" super practice.
    - The problem is the equalizer, only one third of the race the knob is exploitable, and the switch "pad" does not add anything significant.
    - I would say that Vox offers us a right foot, without revolutionizing the world of distortion. Can be a bit too expensive when it came out (around the 110-120 euros), just for signing Satriani and Vox brand. Otherwise the price / quality ratio is really good on occasion.

    The boost is also good rev, it increases lgrement gain and volume, just enough to bring out the rhythm of the solo, but not that.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For two years I use, I like his versatility as long as you change the SETTING THE amp and guitar.

    I do not know if I would do this choice, but it is good that I would keep probably pedals.

    * 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.

    * Cream chicken-head knobs for precise positioning and high visibility on dark stages




    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use, it's a distortion pedal with 3 knobs, a pad switch and 2 switches. One is the on/off switch, the other is sort of a boost function.

    The only slightly difficult thing about functioning this pedal would be the pad switch, some people may not know what it's for without reading the manual, but it's basically just to lower the input level to match other high-gain type pedals you'd have in your chain.

    The more function as I mentioned is like a boost and pretty much just overall boosts the previous settings you'd already have set on the satchurator and add more harmonic content, more volume and a tad more gain.

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is where I'm a little skeptical. I'm not a big fan of Satch's tone, though I love his tunes. I've found this pedal to be very dynamic as it's stated, pick attack is key to change the dynamics. It also cleans up decently as a distortion pedal. The more button is almost always on for me since it brings the pedal over the top and sounds aggressive but great!

    The sound however is where I think this pedal falls short. It's a very bright pedal, just starting with the tone knob at noon I get a very ear-piercingly bright distorted sound, any further and it would become completely useless and sterile. I had to tame the tone knob a lot to balance the sound. This is most likely just the nature of the pedal which is fine, but doesn't suit me, but may suit others that have dark sounding amps. Therefore this pedal is generally too brittle for me. I can see it working well with either a dark amp or maybe a downtuned guitar that demands clarity when playing rhythm.

    To me, generally this pedal sounds like a modified ds-1, a more dynamic ds-1, but still has the same general bright character and modern-type distortion. I know satch has been a long time user of the DS-1 and maybe he's gotten so used to it that this has been reflected in the satchurator.



    OVERALL OPINION

    overall it's a very dynamic pedal, yet very bright. And like I stated before, reminds me of a modified ds-1. Which some people hate and some people love. It's definitely a modern type of distortion, not vintage. However, it still sounds like a pedal, though a very good one since it's so dynamic, but not very amp-like. And I am not a big fan of the overall tone.

    Is it satch in a box? Probably. Is it the best distortion pedal ever? no.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Satchurator is rather transparent ... at the start! It does not color the sound. on the other hand, with the gain goes up, we're moving more and more towards his typed in March .... It works for the SRV, Hendrix, Guns. She is beautiful and good "signature" Satch: I found myself back riffs worship (there are rather the sound of the album "Crystal Planet").
    The knob Tone is used on the first half, staying pretty late. But after the half, we will instead hear a DS1, but at least usable (the sound of the 1st albums satch with "crushing days").
    The "More": it acts differently depending on the level of earnings. With the gain to zero, the "More" will be the gain to 3 / 4. After that, the "More" will boost the volume above and a little more body.
    The mini switch "pad" seems a little blur the attack, especially if you put a wah before ... It is not super obvious.
    Finally, Volume, and although it serves only to adjust the output level, no action on the grain or gain ...


    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for several months, I had been able to compare with other distos the same price range, and I have not hesitated to quality and sounds fab. For cons, the signature is not misused, we will be happy if you like Satriani, typed or saturation. In any case the quality is really there, and saw the bargain price, I think that is an excellent choice. For once I have not had the feeling of paying only "signature". I would do this choice, yes, but beware, not for the versatility of saturation.

    This is an analog distortion I think, equipped with a boost. Alim 9v battery or standard. Fairly light and very well finished.

    UTILIZATION

    Configuration very simple: a volume, saturation and tone.
    A switch pad that should mitigate his sometimes aggressive attacks of the strings.
    Finally, two switches, one on and one more. The effect is put on and more boost.

    This pedal is a distortion pedal but not a pedal or overdrive crunch. The saturation rate is therefore faster.

    The controls are very precise and really influence the sound except the pad function. Personally I can not see the difference.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 6 months, I've had a lot of distortion pedals and I find it interesting. It sounds good, not transistor (depending on the amp of course). It is also well finished and seems well assembled.
    For the price I would do so this election is all convincing.

    The Vox Satchurator is a distortion pedal that was designed together by Vox and guitarist Joe Satriani. The pedal is made up of analog components, with 1/4" connections for input and output. It requires power from either a nine volt battery or power supply, and isn't going to be rackable as it's a foot pedal.

    UTILIZATION

    It's not hard at all to use the Vox Satchurator, as the parameters are ones that you'll find on virtually every distortion pedal. There are a few added features, but nothing that isn't more or less self explanatory. The pedal has three knobs for gain, tone, and volume, as well as two buttons for engaging the distortion and another labeled 'more' for adding, you......

    UTILIZATION

There are a few added features, but nothing that isn't more or less self explanatory. The pedal has three knobs for gain, tone, and volume, as well as two buttons for engaging the distortion and another labeled 'more' for adding, you guessed it, more volume to your sound. The pedal also has a pad switch for helping to compensate level wise to match pedals put in front of the chain. I haven't had a need to look at the manual for this pedal, so I can't speak to it's worth.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The Vox Satchurator is a pretty powerful pedal as it's got a huge sound. You can get a nice array of tones with this pedal, all of which are quite thick and huge sounding. Of course they say that the pedal is supposed to give you a sound like Joe Satriani's, but realistically, that's not possible unless you're Satriani himself. Having said this, I can certainly see the resemblance between this pedal and Joe's sound, as it's a very rich distortion with a nice amount of low end presence, much like Satriani's signature sound...

    OVERALL OPINION

    The Vox Satchurator is definitely a pedal worth knowing about and trying, whether you're a Joe Satriani fan or not. Certainly fans of Satriani will take a liking to this pedal more than others, but it's a great overall pedal that can be useful regardless of your personal opinion on Joe Satriani. It's probably a bit overpriced, but still not too bad considering the great sound. Definitely a must try for Satriani fans and beyond!

    Bodeneffekt von Vox.

    UTILIZATION

    Nichts für Vintage-Freaks, dieses Pedal will schon richtig durchgestossen werden und ist zum Shreddern sicherlich perfekt geeignet.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Kompromissloses Distortion mit Charakter. High-Gain, schön warm und voll, sahnig und mit viel Sustain. Eben ein Sachurator.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Warum auf dem Gerät VOX steht, habe ich dann doch nicht richtig verstanden, VOX ist britisch, crunchy, dreckig und bluesig warm. Dieser Treter klingt dann doch eher nach Terminator oder eben Sachurator, aber sicherlich nicht nach VOX..??
