VOX is pleased to introduce the first pedal in an ongoing collaboration with guitar icon Joe Satriani. 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.

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, 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.

“The Satchurator is the most musical, most dynamic, multi-function distortion pedal I’ve ever played through” says Satriani. “This little red box is a monster tone generator. Following my specifications without compromise, and adding design innovations I never thought possible, the VOX team has delivered exactly what I need for the stage as well as the studio: a distortion pedal that responds to my touch, and produces a big, natural, harmonically rich tone compatible with any guitar/pedal/amp configuration.”

      Comments about Vox Satchurator Distortion Pedal:

      The most sensitive pedal I have ever played. It responds to slight movements of the dials. LOADS of tone and tremendous playability. It picks up every single nuance of your playing. HUGE FEEL. Little movements of the dial have large changes in the tone/distortion so you can easily find any sound. Besides the versatility, it has really usable features such as the "more" switch to boost your distortion (kind of like a lead switch but it offers wide variation depending on where you have your distortion set). The "pad" toggle is handy for putting hot pedals in front of it without overdriving it. Love it, hands down my favorite distortion pedal.

      Comments about Vox Satchurator Distortion Pedal:

      I love the More switch idea but Im not able to move the tone knob past 10 o clock without the pedal sounding very thin and buzzy.. ive tried this pedal on the clean channel of a 6505+ and also through the clean channel of a Hot Rod deluxe with the same results. I think this pedal has some very innovative designs to it(more button and pad switch) but overall its a really limited pedal and sounds terrible with the tone knob past 10-11 o clock.

      Comments about Vox Satchurator Distortion Pedal:

      This product is probably my favorite distortion pedal. The tone and gain controll is phenomenal. Every time you move one of those knobs it's a whole new sound. If you move the tone to the left it is thicker. If you turn the gain to the right it's definately more distorted.

        Comments about Vox Satchurator Distortion Pedal:

        I use this product as my main sound and I couldn't be happier with it. I've been through a lot of distortions and this one is by far the best one for me. I play a lot of lead guitar. The distortion is great, I don't use the gain all the way up for rythm, and when I hit the "more" button, the gain turns up and it's time to shred!!!
