While I was at Musikmesse I took all the risks to provide you some good content, and to satisfy my thirst for gear. When I went to Vox booth I heard some rumbling sound coming from an soundproofed booth. Yeah… A demo of the brand new Ice 9 overdrive the result of a collaboration between Vox and Joe Satriani. I’ve put my earplugs, and entered the soundproofed room, and believe you me it was still very loud. The demonstrator played it with a Vox Series 55 guitar (I’ll post about these new Vox guitars later) and a Vox amplifier.
The least I can say is that the Vox Ice 9 tone is insane… I love that kind of rumbling, and angry tone! That’s typically the type of sound I would achieve… Here is a short video from inside the isolation booth from which I left a bit quickly because I feared for the flip cam microphone! But the mic made it… Luckily!
