Many Chasidic groups have a particular siddur that is used by most in that group. Does Satmer have such a siddur?

Something tells me it's not this one. – Double AA May 18 '12 at 3:33

I believe Satmar Chassidim use סידור ישראל דוד.

A visit to any Satmar Shtiebel in NY could provide a more solid answer. I didnt pay attention to the siddur I used at the kever of the Divrei Yoel in K.Y.

Now if I could just figure out where to buy a copy for my ever-expanding siddur collection... – yoel May 18 '12 at 3:40

Davening in a Satmer shul in Boro Park, I noticed the siddurim used there were not the typical dimensions I was used to seeing. On the first page the publisher explained that it was made that way in order to fit the (pretty narrow) shtenders (pews).

I don't remember seeing anything unusual about the siddur itself.

On Yomim Tovim many of them use the Machzor Divrei Yoel which details all the customs of the Divrei Yoel.

The Rebbe Reb Yoilish ztz"l himself used to daven from the Siddur Tefillo Yeshoro we-Kesser Nehoiro.

Welcome to mi.yodeya Motti! Thanks for the inside information. Why do you think the chasidim don't use the same sidur as the Rebbe? – WAF Feb 13 '14 at 17:53

Satmar in Montreal (R' Zalman Leib's) use Siddur Yetev Lev which indeed has a strange format, as mentioned by Shmuly.
