are you sure you guys are not confusing the availability of the jemini with that of the satchurator?
I thought the jemini had been available a few months now....
the satchurator is due to be dispatched mid august.....


lol im confused.

I tried to put a video up, but the thing i have for recording video is bad. The one min video i tried to put up was 760Mb. so.... i didnt, plus the sound on the video wasn't great.

I also noticed that the swirl on this jemini, is different to mine. which is good.

You can try to compress it with memcoder or another tool like it. 760Mb for 1 min : It seems that you recorded it it a TV card or something like so the video is encoded raw ( series of bitmaps ).

Oh God, say it ain't so! The "Ibanex Dave Eye Pegal" on the box, did get me suspicious. lol

After plugging in, i have noticed it to be fairly buzzy at the highest gain settings. especially the right side. i was playing with single coils, because that's all i use, but in my set up they dont suffer with any major hum usually.

but that being said, drop it back a fraction from the max DRIVE setting, and the buzz disappears very fast.

The Tone of the Distortion on both sides, is nice, i really like it. The low strings are really bassy even when the tone is in the middle, id prefer it a little brighter, so ill be turning the tone up a nice bit.

I put up a very rough demo, but you can hear my camera focusing and stuff.... just a little idea of what it's like(i play close enough to the same riff, for a reason)

Thanks for posting the video.
I have been wanting a demo for a long time.
What kind of amp are you running it into?

It would be nice to here it with some humbuckers through a half stack.

This is the second demo I have heard with this pedal and right now I have to say I am leaning a little more towards the Vox Satriani pedal. What do you guys think?

I can't wait to here Vai's demo of the pedal.

So far, it's not impressing me at all...The Satchurator sounds like a much better pedal, and it's 2 distortions in one at half the price...

satchurator by far......affordable and yes sounds simple yet versatile!
