VOX - Joe Satriani Ice 9 Overdrive Demo

PG's Shawn Hammond is On Location in Frankfurt, Germany, where he visits the VOX Amplification booth. In this segment, we get to check out the newest effects pedal from VOX - the Joe Satriani Signature Ice 9 Overdrive. The Ice 9 overdrive pedal is fourth in a series of effect pedals created in collaboration between world-renowned guitarist Joe Satriani and VOX. With two distinct overdrive modes, versatile tone-shaping, and the ever-popular 'More' switch, the Ice 9 delivers a wide range of inspiring tones, yet remains remarkably easy to use. The Ice 9's controls are Gain, Tone, Bass Volume and it features the aforementioned More switch. In addition, it has another switch that goes between Vintage and Modern voicings. The Vintage mode employs a special op amp and premium diodes to offer overdrive effects that are sweetly warm and classic, with just the right amount of sparkle and sustain. In contrast, the Modern voice utilizes a Germanium diode to kick up a cutting-edge overdrive that is altogether new and aggressive.
