A man that needs no introduction is a man to be revered (or despised, depending). Joe Satriani is one such man. You might have to introduce him to your non-guitarist friends, but you’d be surprised – I’ve met many a non-musician (girls even!) who love Satch – and who couldn’t? His expressive, outside the box tone, virtuoso mastery, and accessible compositional style have been at the forefront of instrumental music for years.
After working with DiMarzio for several years on the design, they released his signature mini-humbucker, the Satch Track, last year. He recently sat down to give some insight into his mindset and thoughts on the design of the pickup, and give us a taste of what they sound like in different contexts.
