Satchur8™

DP273F

These days, you can get humbuckers tuned for just about any specific sound — modern, vintage, warm, bright — from blistering harmonics to hammering chug. The Satchur8™ was designed for guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, and it has an expressive attack with a warm, sweet singing lead tone. It can go big when you need it, and get quiet when you back off.

When we started this project, we chose an Alnico 8 magnet because it has lots of output, with a buttery smooth mid-range, deep, full-bodied bass, and a warm, singing solo tone that suits Joe’s playing style. Additionally, the coils were tuned to Joe’s sound. The rich output of the Alnico 8 magnet makes the Satchur8™ great for hot humbucking tones.

The Satchur8™ is smooth yet bright, with plenty of clarity and distinction. It’s loaded with dynamics, and notes have weight and authority. Joe says the Satchur8™ is the richest, most complete sounding pickup he’s ever used. “I wish we could just say, ‘This pickup sounds effing great!’”

The Satchur8™ is available in F-spacing only.

Tech Talk

The Alnico 8 magnet can be touchy. It’s powerful, but it has a tendency to produce a clogged, nasal sound – all bark and no bite. The Satchur8™ avoids this. It uses the power of Alnico 8 to create a broad attack, with a powerful impact and a big sound.
