Recaptures sought-after vintage and modern sounds in a powerful, versatile, and extremely musical pedal design.

Drawing on Joe Satrianis knowledge accumulated from decades of groundbreaking performances, both live and in the studio, VOX unveils a breakthrough in guitar tone in The Satchurator distortion pedal. Designed to Satrianis exact specification, the Satchurator produces Satrianis signature tone and adds 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 effects pedal. The Vox Satchurator is capable of very high gain levels, but operates more quietly and musically than many other modern distortion pedals. It also preserves the tone and pick attack regardless of style, while providing distortions from subtly distorted blues tones through classic rock and shred.
"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 and studio—a distortion pedal that responds to my touch, and produces a big, natural, harmonically rich tone compatible with any guitar/pedal/amp configuration."


  • Analog distortion pedal designed under the complete supervision of Joe Satriani
  • Controls for Gain, Tone and Volume
  • 'More' gain boost switch enables two footswitchable distortion sounds in one pedal. This gain boost is dramatic when gain knob is set low, and is a subtle solo boost when gain knob is set to maximum.
  • 'Pad' switch pads down input to allow for high gain pedals (such as modern wahs) placed before Satchurator. Up is pad 'ON'. Down is pad 'OFF' for full Satchurator effect.
  • High gain, low noise design provides vintage to modern distortion sounds
  • 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

The sound of Satch - it's a natch. Call or click today to order.

Comments about Vox Joe Satriani Satchurator Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I've had this pedal for about 9 months now and I really like it. It's flexible in that you have a wide range of tone you can get from it and the distortion sounds GREAT! Would highly recommend it for someone looking to get a new distortion pedal.

Excellent distortion


from Tucson, AZ

Comments about Vox Joe Satriani Satchurator Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This pedal is probably one of the best analog distortions out there. Great tones, Ok price, AMAZING DISTORTION. You can achieve great bluesy overdrive to massively crunchy hot rodded distortion. Metal-heads...beware...this isnt a metal pedal. Its pretty much great for everything but super heavy hardcore death metal. This thing rocks.
