On Super Colossal, Satch mentions a very small amp in its first stages of construction being used on the track 'A Cool New Way'

And in the credits he thanks Fargen amps and Wizard amps??

Anyone got the lowdown on what Satch has his hands on?

cheers

I never thought that I'd see the day when Peavey made a $500 5 watt amp!!!

I never thought I'd see the day when a guy who is famous for getting his signature tone from a $40 pedal would have 2 signature amps.

If there's any player out there that's sat on his laurels for the past 15 years, it's Satch. I think his tone has progressively improved on his records, however I understand that in the studio he uses Confords, Bogners and modded Marshalls rather than his signature Peavey. Personally, my favorite lead tone from him is featured on the track "Until We Say Goodbye" (from "Engines of Creation"), on which used a Bogner Ecstasy.

really?? I would think that's more vai territory. I don't particularly like Satch, but his music is really progressing. Its not more fulfilling or anything, but the theory aspect of it has gotten much more interesting. All the pitch axis stuff i think is really cool. that said, i still can't listen to him for more than 15 minutes or so.

for what its worth I was at the plant studios for a day and got to meet him. and appear on his record. I was shouting not playing my guitar. All I saw laying around there were his JSX amps. they were in a bunch of different configurations, heads, combos, etc. he is a really cool dude and treated everyone really nice.

after watching various videos and seeing him live several times.....

I think Satch always sounds like Satch, no matter what he is playing through.

wish I could find those 80% first though....

Most people here cant listen to satch..either cos there are not enough changes or cos he doesnt sound like robben ford....both satch and vai know what they are doing...and 10 years from now...on hearing a new song...I would immediately know if its satch or vai.....now thats a brandname....plus both of em can PLAY!!!!

You know, in my efforts to be as PC as possible, it was hard to put this out. I've not really been moved by Satch for years now. I don't think his stuff has progressed nor improved since his 'Flying in a Blue Dream' record, which (when released) demonstrated innovative guitar anthems, compositional prowess and good old rock n' roll. Since then, it seems to me that his music is re-hashed over and over. It kills me to say this, because Satch has been such an important influence in my development as a player but one thing you can count on is an honest opinion from me.

I guess now, I get a lot more out of listening to Blues Saraceno, Michael Landau, Jeff Kollman, Joe Bonamassa and Andy Timmons.
