Joe Satriani and push/pulls...

(mods - plz delete if already posted - couldn't find it)

i always wondered: does Joe ever use push/pulls on his JSs? i've seen many Satch's live DVDs and likes, but i really can't find a moment where he's using them. never. both the knobs are always pushed down, but probably it's just me?

i'm wondering this as all the JSs (except the 900, IIRC) have push/pull knobs while he "seems" not using them. though, in the Satriani LIVE! DVD we can see Mike Manning doing a soldering job on Joe's 1200CA and there's a push/pull knobs in there, i'm pretty sure.

just out of curiosity... thanks

Nuno, I've seen Joe used them live, he's just very sneaky and quick when he does it. Also, on the live dvd, you can see him using them on cool#9.

I think he uses it in studio more, there's a few solos of his that sound very single coil-y. I'm thinking its probably the push pull thing.

Re: Joe Satriani and push/pulls...

I had Push-push on a guitar. Unsure which I like best, push pushing, or push pulling. I use my push pull's ALL the time on my JS. It's what makes it a great guitar. Every guitar should have a high pass. I just had a p/p installed on another single knob guitar. It reverse phases the Bartolini (effectt is single coile tone) and had high pass installed that's always on.

For what it's worth, I think push push is a little better because it's easier to sneak in a pinky tap than using two fingers to pull up. In my experience this is especially true for knobs farther from the bridge, like a strat's second tone knob, and exceedingly so when you're already gripping the whammy bar and a pick.

Joe talks about using the Push/pulls on "Asik Veysel" off of his new album in an interview with Guitar World.
