This amplug is a little bit unusual to me. I know they meaning Vox are trying to capitalize on the Joe Satriani fans by marketing this pocket amp but to me it sounds nothing like Joe's tone. Also it doesn't fit in with the tone from the rest of the pocket amps by Vox. The other ones have a very usable and natural tone to them especially when plugged into the computer but this one seems a little on the thin side tone wise for me.

Out of all the pocket amp from Vox this one is a bit of a disappointment for me. I really like the acoustic and the classic rock the best because they have really captured a solid tone, but this is very thin. Joe's tone is not thin by any stretch and for them to put this thing out with his name on it is a bit bizarre.

You probably want to use a Ibanez signature Satriani model guitar otherwise why would you buy this thing. Even coupled with a Joe signature guitar it doesn't even come close to any sound that I have heard him play. The voicing is close to his sound but the tone is lacking in depth and warmth that I find in the other pocket amps.


Unless your are a huge Joe fan and even if you are not this is not the best of these units. It has almost half the battery life and the tone is just sub par. At new these units come in at around $50 which is ten bucks more than most of the other pocket amps. With a higher price tag and a lot less battery life this is a must PASS for me. Pick up the Lead or the Classic rock one if you want heavy distortio. If you can't help yourself because you are such a Joe Satriani fan then this is the only person that is going to buy into this amp. I do not recommend this amp.
