Another installment of things Robert likes that most people don’t...
I recently read one more complaint about the name of the first pedal in the collaboration between Joe Satriani and Vox: The Satchurator.
(Satriani’s nickname is “Satch”. The type of sounds the Satchurator produces are sometimes described as “saturation”. Seems like a perfect name to me.)
It’s also interesting to me that—despite all the hype about tube amp distortion being the holy grail—despite Satriani’s signature amp having two channels dedicated to tube distortion—he actually uses the solid-state Satchurator into his amp’s clean channel.
