DiMarzio Releases the Satchur8 Humbucker

Designed with Joe Satriani around an alnico 8 magnet with tons of output.

Staten Island, NY (January 22, 2018) -- DiMarzio, Inc. announces the release of the Satchur8 (DP273F) hum-canceling pickup for electric guitars.

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 midrange, 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.

DiMarzio’s Satchur8 pickup is made in the U.S.A. and may now be ordered for immediate delivery. Suggested List Price is $114.99 each (MAP $79.99). For more information about the new Satchur8™ pickup, please visit our website at www.dimarzio.com.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
