Joe Satriani

Joe Satriani Amp Vault gives you instant access to the private collection of one of the most influential electric guitar players. These 59 Tone Models result from Joe’s relentless pursuit of great tone and commitment to capturing his favorite amps precisely. Joe handpicked each of the 27 amplifiers from his personal collection, dialed in his favorite settings and captured them using IK’s Advanced AI Machine Modeling at Sammy Hagar’s Red Rocker Studios.

From sought-after vintage gems to his modded signature amplifiers, these guitar tones have appeared on iconic albums like “Surfing with the Alien” and “The Elephants of Mars,” along with being on stage with his supergroups Chickenfoot and G3. The Joe Satriani Amp Vault Collection covers over 35 years of soaring melodies, layered soundscapes and soulful sounds.

All your favorite British rock tones are represented in a rainbow of tones, reaching far and wide, from early '70s crunch and clean tones to Joe’s modern high-gain sounds. The collection features Tone Models based on multiple Marshall® amps, including 4 versions of Joe’s signature JVM410H amp: stock, C83 Mod, KT88, and 6L6, each with its particular character and feel.

These British amps alone cover a vast territory from clean to high-gain that will keep you inspired for years to come.

Marshall® 6100 30th Anniversary

Time Machine

Joe hops in a time machine and returns to the 1950s and '60s with Tone Models based on 9 classic Fender amps from his private collection, including an original '53 Tweed Deluxe, which he has owned and used on almost every album since the early '90s.

Joe’s layered rhythm guitar tracks often feature a variety of American-style amplifiers. Sparing no expense, he chose 9 of his favorite Fender amplifiers featuring captures based on Fender’s Hand-wired series, including a '64 Custom Princeton Reverb®, '64 Custom Deluxe Reverb®, '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb® and a '57 Deluxe® with an Alnico Cream Celestion speaker.

Also included are captures of late '60s reissue amps: a '68 Custom Pro Reverb™, '68 Custom Princeton® Reverb, '65 Princeton® Reverb and a '68 Custom Vibro Champ® Reverb.

In addition to several bell-like clean captures, many amps were turned up to produce thick, throaty crunch tones perfect for rhythm tracks or as the ideal “edge-of-breakup” platform for your favorite boost and overdrive pedals.

Beyond the Supernova

Joe could have stopped at the Fender and Marshall captures, but being “The Extremist,” Joe wanted to include Tone Models based on several amps that have been part of his touring and studio work. He included his trusty Peavey 5150®, a staple for almost every album. Joe brings his SLO-30, Friedman Small Box, and newer 5150III models for high-gain fanatics. Joe has been using his Wells amp (only five made) since '91 and includes this rare amp, a blend of VOX, Fender and Marshall-style circuits.

To top off the list of clean tones, there are captures of Joe’s Hiwatt and Roland Jazz Chorus that have been vital to Joe’s album work.
