For the money spent, this pedal is nice. I will start by saying, however, that is is not a total digital delay. In a digital delay, there is no decay of notes played- it keeps repeating perfect copies of the note played. With analogue, there is more decay with each repeat (a copy of a copy of a copy, etc). Analogue delay is great and the pedal sounds good, but as a matter of technicality the title is a bit of a misnomer. The construction is solid and I have no complaints about durability. It is (as advertised) true bypass and does not color your tone. The sound is good- other than the fact that it is actually analogue it sounds good. It is reasonably versatile and can get a decent range of delay tones. Maybe not ideal for the 800MM "Edge" sounds, but it can give anything from slap-back to Floyd-esque sounds. the pedal is good on it's own, but I feel it works best stacked with other pedals on your board for extra delay, ambiance or texture. Not amazing, but a very good, usable pedal at an affordable price.

This is a good pedal for getting the basic character or AC15 or AC30 amps in an easy package. It's a little noisy at higher gains, but it's smooth and useful. I like it best into a clean amp. It produces useful and pleasant growl and grind at moderate volumes without having problems from that jittery club manager who wants everything at minimum volume. The low end is a little loose, but not enough to really bug me. Overall pleasing, useful and a great value. For picky types, the Tech21 version may be more to your taste, but the Joyo is a fine little box.

This pedal is awesome! I play my guitar through a PA system, and my sound was definitely missing something.this totally does exactly what it says it does, it gives you a full range of Marshall tones.a lot of other reviewers seemed annoyed with the voice control, but I think it's awesome and really lets you sweep through the spectrum of different Marshall amp sounds. what I like the most about this pedal is that you are able to add a generous amount of Drive before the signal starts to actually distort, which is awesome for using it as a preamp . I picked up the joyo overdrive pedal to put in front of this one, and use it as an overdrive channel, to great success! this panel looks awesome and is built like a tank, and the on board Eq lets you completely shape your sound. I have to give this product four stars however, because like mentioned in other reviews, the unit is very noisy. for the money and the tone though, I don't regret this purchase at all and recommend it to anyone looking to use it similarly to how I do.please note that this is an amp simulator, not a dedicated distortion pedal. this is my third pedal from this manufacturer, and I have been nothing but pleased! Joyo is known for shamelessly cloning other gear, but that's okay! I will continue 2 purchase Joyo products in the future :-)

Thank goodness for internet reviews which steered me towards trying this pedal. For the price I don't think anything out there can beat it. Has a very good range of distortion from alternative crunch to metal insanity. The high/low switch is a nice touch although I'm hard pressed to find a reason to take it off of "high". The build quality seems very solid. I only use the pedal to mess around with at home and in my project studio so I can't attest to it's road worthiness but it seems like it would hold up quite well. My only complaint is that I did run into the radio interference problem some other have spoken of. I live about 15 miles from a primary radio hub in the area and at different times of the day (can't figure that one out) I've picked up a slight, but noticeable, signal from one of the stations. Normally a problem like that would knock it down at least two stars but it's such a good sounding pedal, at such a great price, I can live with a faint hint of Taylor Swift coming through my amp on occasion. Highly recommended.

I bought this pedal a while back, maybe a couple of months... I waited to write a review about it because i didnt want to leave some hyped up garbage and have it fail miserably after a short while... Im happy to say that after a few months im still very impressed with this pedal. The hp lp switch makes it very versatile and it doesn't lose the bottom end the way my other overdrive pedals do(Boss Blues Driver, and BBE Green Screamer). It keeps the bass frequencies right where they should be and just overdrives your signal in a sweet way... Im not ususally a person to write reviews but this pedal inspired me to do so. The one thing i will say about the pedal thats a little different for me, is the volume is very high to start with... i keep mine about half and half on the volume and gain... It has a lot more headroom but im not really up for blowing people away with my mind melting solos. Overall the build quality is really impressive. I looked at the Fulltone OCD and compared the idea of spending another hundred bucks for it but ultimately decided to pass. If your in the market for a cheap pedal that performs and you aren't overly concerned with a "Brand Namer" Then this is probably the pedal for You... Im very happy with mine.

I'm very happy with this pedal. I mainly bought it to use directly into the PA system at band rehearsals. It sounds very good going directly into the PA. It can get a little noisy when the gain and voice are turned up all the way, but this isn't any different from an amp with the gain turned up high. I really like the sound of this pedal. It's feels like a pre-amp in a pedal. The EQ knobs make a huge difference in the sound of the pedal. It's easy to dial in great sounds with the level/voice/gain knobs. The sound through our PA is very good. It sounds even better through the clean channel of my practice amp (Bugera V22). I put this at the end of my pedal chain and it seems to play very nicely with my other pedals: Blues Driver, Joyo Chorus, Joyo Delay, Cry Baby. It's very easy to get a Hendrix sound with this pedal and the Cry Baby :) I'm surprised by the quality of the pedal build. It has a very sturdy metal enclosure that seems very solid. The knobs all rotate easily but have a little resistance so they aren't accidentally changed. I like to Velcro my pedals to my board but this pedal has a rubber back. The Velcro tape doesn't stick to the rubber very well. It will hold for a while, but any time the pedal is removed from the board, the Velcro peals off the pedal.

For this price, it would be stupid for me not to have purchased it. If you play in churches or just go direct with your band, this is a great backup to an amp. It has a wide variety of tones and thickness to use. It doesn't get super heavy, even with a metal distortion without sounding pretty bad, but if you stay away from metal, this thing can be your ace in the hole. Here's an example where it saved me. I played at an event that would be hard to describe so I'm going to simplify it to this: There were a lot of musicians that jumped in and out for various songs and we quickly ran out of XLR spots and that all they had for me was a quarter inch aux jack. What this meant was that they told me that I could not use my usual rig of an Orange Micro Terror amp (20W tube preamp) into a direct box with cab emulation. The headphone out sounded terrible so I was pretty much without an amp. So I went to my bag, took the Joyo JF-16 British amp simulator out and plugged my pedal board into it and then the mixer. I dialed in a decent tone and saved the day. Of course, an actual amp is better, but in a tough situation or for practice, this pedal is great. Just don't expect it to revolutionize your tone like I did when I got this before I got my orange micro terror.

Love this pedal! FYI- there is a ton of volume on tap, so start out low. Read all the other reviews for tone. I just want to tell you about the inside's of this pedal. Great build quality on the PCB. Two red 5mm led's for clipping. true bypass switch is just fine. Jacks are pcb mounted, but they are pretty solid. 9V jack is about the same as Boss pedals...just fine. Now for the bad......the ribbon connector going from the pcb to the true bypass switch is HORRIBLE. I recommend replacing this asap. The ribbon connector's wires are super thin and break VERY easily. I removed it and soldered six 22awg wires in place of it. Much stronger, and I swear it sounds better. This soldering job is not for the novice...you need a very fine tip on your soldering iron and quick soldering skills. These Joyo PCB's are good...but not so good that you can really heat them up....the pads will lift. I used a 40w soldering iron and was quick with my connections. I am attaching a pic of the PCB for all you DIY geeks out there. Notice the broken ribbon connector at the bottom of the pic! Other than the ribbon connector, I love this pedal! Well worth the money....been using it live for a year now. Cuts through the mix nicely. Also has a presence control trimpot on the solder side of the PCB to tweak the mid's to your liking, if need be.

I needed something to take my rock amplifier into metal territory. The first thing I tried was an MXR Prime Distortion, but it didn't have enough oomph. The next thing I tried was the MXR Fullbore Metal, and that was good, but I felt like it took complete control of my tone. I lost the sound of my amp. It was also had a high end that was difficult to tame. So I thought I'd try an OD pedal instead. I don't dig Tube Screamers, and all the reviews said this was an OCD clone. I don't actually know - I've never played an OCD pedal. Too rich for my blood. I tried this one because it was cheap and true bypass. Well, the tone is perfect. Combined with my amp's tone, it's enough to push my tone from hard rock into metal, but without losing the core elements of my tone that are so important to me. I don't use it for solos or boosting or any of that. I use it strictly to thicken up my rhythm tone for my heaviest songs. It's perfect for that. In fact, I'm surprised that an overdrive pedal - one that sounds pretty "overdrivey" when the amp is clean - has the capability of taking me into metal territory. But this does the trick. Saved me from having to get a new amplifier. Truth be told, it is a little noisier than I expected. It is probably less noisy when the amp's gain is lower, so I'll assume most of the noise is due to my own rig's settings. I can live with the noise. When the whole band is playing, you don't notice it. Overall, just a great overdrive. Not too trebly, not too gainy, not thin. Worth twice what I paid for it. Well done, Joyo.

It's a good OD pedal. I set it up with OD at zero and level at 9. The boost certainly did an excellent job of pushing my amp into some thick overdrive. It doesn't take much from the OD knob to get the breakup you want. Using it past 6 or 7 would suit some, but it gets a little fuzzy for anything I'll need. Pushing the level knob up to 9 did create some noise when the pedal was engaged, but it was less than I expected. Bringing it back down to 6 negated much of that anyway. Pulling back on the level to 6 and increasing the OD to 3 seems like the right spot...for me. It gives me just enough boost and added overdrive to get the hard rock that I like. Of course, we all want something different, and your settings will be different. But the pedal has a wide enough range in each knob that you should be able to get what you want. It's not a distortion pedal, but it does get pretty aggressive. Not sure how it will sound as a standalone gain tool for a solid state amp, but it certainly does an excellent job of driving tubes. The paint job...that's my one dislike. Not that it matters to me all that much, but I think it can affect expectations of people considering it. It LOOKS like a heavy distortion pedal. But it's not. As for hints...I've seen a review from three years ago where the switch wasn't activating, and the red light was staying on. I bought mine "used" through Amazon. When I got it, it was doing the same thing. Maybe it's the same pedal, but I doubt it. All that needed to be done was to tighten the nut on the switch. It was a little loose and was allowing the switch to sag into the pedal. Tightened it up and all was well. As for other complaints about definition and clarity in chords...I can't speak for them, and they may have different ears than mine. For me, everything sounded very clear and defined. It's always possible that tweaking settings between the guitar, amp and pedal can make some difference there. It's also possible that this pedal is being compared to a considerably higher end option. I don't know other than to say that all situations are different. Bottom line is that there seems to be widespread love for this pedal, and the price point is amazing. I'd take this easily over the Boss Super Overdrive, Bad Monkey, Screamin' Blues and many others in its price range. To be honest, for me personally and what I like to hear...ill take it over a TubeScreamer too.

This thing sounds amazing- except for one small problem: At higher gain settings it hisses like a mother. I'm not talking about extreme settings, just gain and "character" (thats what Tech 21calls it- forgot what Joyo calls it) at 3 o'clock. It has a beautiful WARM singing lead tone-better than any pedal that I have owned ( and that's probably 20-30 distortion/overdrive pedals) If only it didn't hiss so much it would be my main lead pedal. If you have a Rocktron Hush or other noise gate pedal, it is worth considering. The Joyo is an EXACT clone of the Tech 21British pedal, which costs $189 (?). I don't know it the tech 21 has the same hissing problem or not.

I bought this after reading numerous good reviews while looking for a good, affordable, true bypass overdrive pedal. The pedal I received does not say True bypass around the switch like the picture shows, it only says Bypass. I am not sure if this was old stock from before they updated the pedal circuit or an older graphics layout and I do not know how to tell by opening up the back of the pedal. The quality seem pretty good and the pots all have uniform movement. The when engaging the pedal there is a slight pop. The battery just BARELY fits in the compartment. There is a surprising amount of distortion available so I only have to turn the gain to about 9 or 10 to get where I want to be. Overall I am very please with the performance and quality of this pedal. When I do upgrade to a high quality pedal it will be perfect for my son!

This compressor does the job simply, but I will definitely upgrade to something with more squish & not as subtle as this Joyo Compressor. I would like a compressor with a bit more range & compression on hand as well as a blend function. The Joyo is very subtle with not much discernible difference in sounds on hand. Click it on, twist the knobs and there it is. The level knob adds a pleasing gain boost that I may keep the pedal for as a dedicated boost. The compression is pleasing, but seems too subtle for me. I have sustain max, attack max & level approx 9:00. If I twiddle the attack to zero the difference is barely noticeable, but still pleasing. I guess I would like MORE please. All in all, I like the pedal & will keep it, but am planning for a more substantial compressor pedal in the future.

This is a solid economy delay pedal. For $40 you're getting a great deal: It sounds good, comes in a heavy duty enclosure, and is made with higher quality components that other pedals at this price-point. I work for a company that makes boutique effect pedals, so naturally, I have a habit of taking everything apart to see under the hood. I was expecting to find a bunch of crap but was surprised to see metal film resistors (much better than carbon film resistors), good jacks, and a 3PDT true bypass foot switch. Another person made the comment, "there's no way this pedal is true-bypass," because of alleged noise. I can assure you from taking it apart, it is. That other individual may have something else mucking up his/her signal path. Another thing that I like about this pedal is all the components are through-hole instead of surface mounted, so it's very easy to mod. I added a "Slam" switch to mine and did other minor tweaks. So if you're a modder, check this one out. As with any delay, I would recommend running the pedal off a power supply because delays and chip-based pedals (chorus, loopers, etc) tend to eat batteries like a hungry Pac-Man. In fact, I would recommend using an isolated power supply (Voodoo labs, etc) because daisy chaining will give you noisy and sometimes unstable results depending on how much other stuff you're running off the chain. I only stated that because that is usually the noise culprit people complain about, not the pedal itself. Totally a good enough pedal to use on your board, but 100% a fantastic back-up to keep in your backpack in case something goes awry, or if you don't want to fly with your expensive gear (we all know how terrifying that can be). Bravo.

If you want a decent tremolo, I can't think of any real reason not to buy this one. The price is good, it nails the "Gimme Shelter" type quaver, and can be applied to either subtly changes your guitar sound or that makes it sound like your are under water. Because tremolo pedals tend to be one-trick ponies as far as pedals go, I can't really see how spending 100 dollars or more can make a huge difference. I put this pedal in the effects loop of my Egnater Rebel 20, behind a TC Hall of Fame Reverb. I haven't noticed any significant signal boost there (as mentioned in some reviews). I run a simple pedal line up: Vox 845 Wah into a Joyo Vintage Overdrive (a really good Tube Screamer clone) into the amp with this Tremolo and the Reverb in the loop. I play mainly blues based rock/classic rock/blues/and the like. This pedal fit my needs perfectly, from "Gimme Shelter" to "Howlin' For You" I get the tremolo I need. This is a more attractive pedal than some of the other Joyos. It looks better than my Vintage Overdrive (again, great pedal). Only the real tone snobs would point to how cheap these are in a negative way. They definitely don't sound cheap, and I've had no issues with Joyo pedals in the past. They seem both sturdy and reliable. I do recommend that anybody who depends on pedals get a one-spot or similar power supply to solve the battery issue.

When opening the box I pulled the pedal out it well exceeded the quality I expected from a 35 dollar pedal. The knobs turn well, the casing is heavy, It just felt good. The switch is definitely cheap. you can hear an audible click when it turns on but replacing the switch isn't a huge deal and since it's just a lighter overdrive, you likely aren't going to be turning it on and off. Now, The plugged in details... The Overdrive is very expressive. as you turn the volume up, it gets louder but doesn't really change the sound. The drive knob has plenty of functionality. It sort of caps out the grit around 12 o'clock but the rest of the pot really shapes the tone. I kept mine pretty low and really dug the tones. The tone Knob has a wide spectrum but the treble end of it is pretty unusable and the bass and is not very bassy. I set it pretty low and it was a very clear and defined tone. You're not going to get any bass-ey tones out of it but it definitely thickens up your sound... As for the treble, you can crank it all the way over and it's going to sound like a chicken' picken' players dream, but to the rest of us it's going to sound very harsh. I run a Walrus audio mayflower on my main board and I AB'd them together. You're obviously going to see a noticeable difference in quality between the two in an isolated environment but I think most of the differences would be lost when you got it up to gig volumes. Overall, Great pedal, Can't believe how much value you get for the price.

I needed a phaser, and saw that the Joyo Vintage Phaser was rated well, and super cheap, so I bought it. I was EXTREMELY impressed with it, and did some further research into their pedals. This was one of their top-rated pedals, so I figured I'd give it a go. I have to say that I am fairy impressed! I get a wide range of tones coming out of this little box - anything from a light fuzz to a vintage-style high gain. You won't get a modern metal crunch from it, so if that's what you're looking for, look elsewhere. If you want a nice distortion to replicate stuff from the 70's and 80's, then this is a great bet. This pedal is currently plugged in, and I suspect that I'll keep it as part of my rig (unless I happen to get rich and find a nicer, boutique pedal, or get around to modding my other pedals.) As a reference: I own several Boss distortion/over drive pedals (Japanese DS-1, SD-1, OD-3 and MT-2.) I The Joyo JF-02 and OD-3 are the two drive pedals that I have hooked up, since they are by far the best sounding and most versatile drive pedals that I currently own. A side-note for the tone-freaks: The peddle does seem to be a bit muddy. It's great for jamming out power chords, but not so articulate when you're arpeggiating chords. (Still noticeable when you back off the gain on the pedal but crank the volume on the amp.)

I bought this based on price first and then reviews. This was intended for playing around at home and not professional use. I usually read through the 3 star reviews and just tally the 5 star and 1 stars because the 2-4 stars stand a better chance of being honest (in my opinion). Anyway, for the price there wasn't much chance of becoming enraged should it turn out to be junk. After ordering the JF-08 I saw another unit that looked promising as well so I went back and did a closer scrutiny of the reviews to determine if I should try to cancel the order and order the other unit. On this closer scrutiny I noticed that almost none of the reviews for the JF-08 were applicable to the JF-08. They were for compressors, distortion, reverb...everything except a Delay (which is what I am writing about!). What the heck is that all about? I was getting torqued just because of that, but I realized I must share the blame for not reading close enough to see that. Anyway, the unit arrived the next day . I unpacked it, plugged it in and it worked great. I was a bit concerned at the lack of a Mix control because I was looking for some subtle slapback, not a rambling echo.echo.echo... As it turns out, the Level control is not really a gain compensation but it actually controls the wet/dry mix so that made me happy too. As far as induced noise, I didn't notice any at all, and I used a 9V transformer instead of batteries. Yay again. I was able to dial in the exact effect I was looking for so what's not to like. For the price, this was a winner for me.

The reason this is only getting 4 stars and not 5 is due to an issue I only discovered yesterday - yes - almost one year after I purchased it. plugged it in and played with it. Loved it. Around 12 o'clock position just worked for me. Yes - that early EVH sound is there but playing around also gets you Gilmour and Hendrix as well. Sounds great with distortion, or without. But a word about distortion - I place it in front of my amp and after distortion pedals. If I place it before distortion it is more subtle and when placed in front of amp, and with the amps overdrive channel on, it is very subtle. I point this out because of some reviews and comments about this being far too subtle of a pedal and it really isn't - and if you open it up there is a small "sweep" knob you can access and adjust - people have reported finding it set too low. I would suspect opening it would void your warranty - but it is an super easy tweak if you think your pedal is not working correctly. Now onto the issue I found - in trying to reduce overall noise I discovered, by process of elimination, the pedal causing a lot of buzz is the JF-06. So I removed it from my chain and put in the battery - and guess what? Does not work. When the battery is in and pedal off the signal passes through but when I kick on the pedal it outputs buzz and nothing else. Hard to think I never used this with a battery before yesterday. So I suspect this buzz is some sort of miswired/faulty connection having to do with the internal 9 volt battery clip. I did do a look over inside, looking for anything obvious such as loose solder. Nothing jumped out at me. So for now living with it, but because I love this so much I will get another - although technically this is still under the one year warranty I really do not want to pack it up and send off to China for a replacement. But if any of the official US JOYO distributors reading this would send me out a new one that would work too.

I don't know if it lives up to all the hype and mystical powers of the all-mighty vintage tube screamers of Ibanez, but it is an exact clone including the same component values, potentiometers, ICs (JRC), etc. For proof that it is exactly the same, I was able to modify it for different frequency response (corner frequency), and add asymmetrical clipping with the exact same components in exactly the same spot in the circuit as seen in TS9 mods. Of course the board is layed out a little differently. The only reason I gave it 4 (really 4.5) stars was because it does produce some noticeable noise (hiss) at higher gains, but this is expected given the boosting stage acts like a high pass filter (this gives it the characteristic mid-range boost). It can be cut with the tone control, but it also may have been due to a poorly shielded amplifier, and or a one-spot power adapter.
