The Joyo High Gain Distortion is based on the Boss Heavy Metal circuit. The main difference is this pedal only has one clipping stage opposed to the three clipping section in the Boss pedal. The resulting sound is less compression and more head room. In my opinion this pedal is good at two sounds; fuzz (crank the gain, highs and mids) and overdrive (crank the volume, treble and add a little bit of gain). In general I find it's more versatile but less aggressive than the original. I'm happy with purchase. UPDATE- according to freestompboxes.org this is actually based on the Marshall Shredmaster. I did some research when I noticed that the Boss tone controls are for bass and mids and the Joyo's controls are mids and highs. Anyway, this is becoming one of my favorite pedals it's perfect for old school punk and metal, it sounds real amp like.

Great pedal and was veryyyy pleasantly surprised. I also tried a high end $200 AC30 pedal and for what I was looking for - clean sparkly AC30 spank a la beatles and Edge and Petty sounds it is great. It can get a bit muddy at the very high end gain settings but most of the time with this pedal (and any distortion really) I am somewhere between 9-1 o clock on settings and its very much in the sweet spot there. I also like it as a slight boost/pre into my amp or other overdrives too. Kudos and phenomenal value at this price. Even if it only does half the gain range as the expensive boutique guys this is a must buy from a pricing standpoint. I will be looking at more joyo gear ....

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. Going back to October, 2014 - 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.

This is a great pedal, especially for the price. I was expecting to receive plastic casing but it's thankfully more durable. The most important thing here is that dope ass dog on the pedal itself. Frankly, that's kind the reason I bought it. Not really but it helped my decision. Tremolo is obviously a simple effect designed for the one use. I needed this effect and didn't want to spend a ton of money. This pedal offers exactly that in comparison the the higher tier, higher price pedals. The only drawback is not being able to choose the waveform. It is what it is with this pedal and that's what you get. It wasn't designed for more contouring but it works well. As they say only a poor carpenter blames his tools. Though, I'd hope you aren't trying to cut wood with this pedal. That'd be dumb. Anyway, great pedal, and I look forward to using it.

By itself the pedal doesn't have a whole lot of gain (either that or I have a somewhat faulty pedal, cause I've turned the gain up all the way and its doesn't give me much to work with). I have however, combined it with some overdrive from my amp and it comes out with a sweet rockin' sound, although there is a somewhat decent amount of fuzz in the background. I'm going to continue to fiddle with it and see what I can do, but I would recommend this pedal if you don't plan on doing any lead guitar playing, and just wanna rock out with power chords and such.

First of all I'm grateful for JOYO. They make a great sounding durable pedal for a great price. The pedal has and awesome cranked amp sustain, tone and response. Which makes it exceptional already. But you need to know what you're getting before you buy it. If you're looking for a TS clone then this is a great option, especially because of the price. BUT keep in mind as a TS copy this pedal will take your bottom end out boost the low mids and compress the highs. Alone it doesn't sound like "gold" but in a mix you can truely appreciate why this pedal acts the way it does. Great pedal! Just be informed before you buy so you aren't confused.

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.

This is a very good, usable pedal. Not the most brilliant and not the most characteristic compressors out there, but I like how subtle and noiseless this unit is. Really it does not color or bias the tone, it does not impose anything on the signal except for adding a little sustain and compression. The attack knob is very subtle, I wasn't even sure that it was working when I first tested the unit with a single coil guitar. Then I plugged in a humbucker axe and the effect of the attack knob became clearly audible. There is an extra pot on the hard to access side of the circuit inside that controls the attack, once can drill a hole on the front panel to get easier access to it - I have not tried it yet, but I will. All in all, this is a keeper and I can recommend if you want subtle organic compression. If you want heavy, tone coloring compression, go for the red box (dyna comp).

I don't use all that many pedals, and the ones I do use are fairly proven/reliable standards for the most part: ISP Decimator II Boss Chorus Ensemble Morley Vai 2 Wah Boss DD-3 Delay and or Boss DD-7 Delay (each on different settings rather than changing one back and forth) Hardwire reverb Tuner pedal And for occasional use some other thing might jump in for a project, a flanger or whatever. Now while I can get by with what's on my amp, I wanted to re-add an OD to the board. I've had decent enough results with TubeScreamers, Blues Driver & Super OD sin the past and could use any of those for my purposes and make it work, but for what this cost I figured I'd take a shot based on reviews. I have a Joyo Tremolo set aside as one of my sometimes pedal and like that well enough. To get down to it I think this is a fine-sounding pedal. It's definitely a vintage OD style as advertised, used as a boost in front to push the signal with some drive. I know we guitar folks tend to split hairs about every piece of gear but I would say this is as good as the other options I mentioned. I do like the Boss-Hardwire-ISP style footswitch mechanism better but other than that there's no reason a good player couldn't go to work with this one, assuming everything else is straight on the guitar and amp ends of the chain. The shop had a few other Joyos I tried out that I didn't care for. I thought this and the red-and-black OD were great, and I mentioned the tremolo, but not so much luck with their modulation effects. Unfortunately they were trying to get 50 bucks for them and I saw this first.

This is an excellent sounding pedal. great high gain distortion/overdrive for cheap. For the price you won't find better. I own about 8 joyo pedals. some are the older style and some the newer style such as this one. although I love the sound of this pedal I question the quality of these newer pedals. they do not appear as solid as the older style pedals and in particular the switch seems of a lesser quality. That being said it functions perfectly and sounds great. lots of great tone can be found in this baby. I just hope it holds up over time. check out the older style joyo crunch. about the same price with a more solid switch. sound is similar although the deluxe crunch is more tonally versatile

Gotta admit: For 33 bucks one should never expect much. So for it to have this many features for a fuzz pedal, one should be grateful. Why? Because it has got to have at least one setting for you that is workable. I did the 10uF "reverse polarity" cap mod and the the Octave Up effect is far more pronounced. I probably wouldn't keep it if it weren't for that, but not because it's a crap pedal. It actually sounds quite good. The tone is quite bright and I usually have to set it to around 9 o'clock, but if you do that, there's fuzz (and actually, tone) there in spades. You can get very good results. Supposedly it's copied from one of the Fulltone Fuzzes, which is a copy of the Tone Bender, so there you go. It's a fuzz pedal. It's cheap. It works. And there's pleasant surprises to be had.

I really like this pedal. I'd say a good starting point for a nice overdrive sound is everything set to 12 oclock. The voice knob is quite useful--turn it up a bit for leads or for a more mid-rangey sound. I dial it back for rhythm playing. Personal preference. With my single coil pickups the box is noisy enough that I've considered betting a noise gate. Noise isn't that noticable when I'm playing. I use this with a Blackstar amp that has a crappy distortion channel. I set it to the clean channel and let the ACtone determine the overall tone. I have found that it sounds similar to the Vox settings on my Fender Mustang II, which is a little too small for gigging. Points off for noise, but excellent sound, especially if you prefer grit over fuzz.

First off, the cost of this pedal is super cheap. Secondly, the sound is great. You can get really thick distorted tones for metal and heavier music or just a nice crunch tone for anything from punk to progressive music. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend this to anyone considering a cheap distortion pedal. Especially if you are going for a Boss DS-1. Those pedals are classic but I think the Joyo Crunch Distortion gives it a run for it's money. The only reason I did not give this item 5 stars is that there are definitely better distortion pedals available. Typically, they are much more expensive brand new.

I've had enough pedals to pay off my home. I love hard rockin crunchy guitar tones. This pedal delivers a good solid crunch. I have a recording studio so I AB'd it against a few other non tube pedals I have at stage volume. Running into an isolated miked amp /cab set up it did well but not as well as my Tech 21 GT2, my Seymour Duncan Power Grid or my Digitech Hardwire TL-2! These three pedals just sounded better. The JF-03 had a bit of muddiness in the midrange and didn't have the amp like sag that my better pedals have. I recommend using an eq with this pedal to clean up the mids. I have never owned a MI crunch box so I don't know how well it replicates it's sound. You do get what you pay for and there are better pedals out there for not a whole lot more but the JF-03 is hard to beat for the money. Cheers!

I like this pedal enough to keep around. I don't really need a distortion right now since I have a two-channel amp (Egnater Rebel 30), but this sounds nice. It's similar sound to my amp's distortion but with a bit different EQ, which is a good thing as I like tube distortion not gainy grit. I try to run my power tubes hot (generally the EL84s on the Rebel) and just put a bit more breakup on top (if I want something different I throw on the fuzz). I never push the gain past noon as it gets plenty distorted by that point, and I prefer a little less gain nowadays (my death-metaller former self would never believe I'm saying this). When you do go higher than noon, it does get hissy. Below that it's adding noise of a different character than my amps gain channel, but no more or worse noise. Seems well made, but the hiss could be rather annoying for someone looking for high gain sounds. If I want high-gain sounds I'll break out the Mesa.

Very good pedal - While I don't believe it sounds exactly like a "Marshall" it has some of that character and it IS a GOOD sounding pedal - I use it for live performances along with a compressor and few effect pedals (rev, dely, mod) and it works really well. I don't like the heavy drive settings at all and it can get noisy at higher gain and/or with VOICE control (as you turn it clock wise) - I like it for adding charcater/punch to my live rig - the tone controls allow you to make quick changes just as if you had an amp and I can now just plug into a board and use monitors instead of lugging my amps. I also have the "American" model for which my review is identical to this one. They are BOTH very good pedals and great tone shaping tools. Great unit overall.

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.

Truly great tones if you are going for that Marshall sound. You can use this with an amp, but it is most useful as an amplifier emulator going direct. I was at a music store and A/B'd this against 5 other pedals (each that were over $80 used), and the only one I liked better was the Box of Rock that I ended up picking up. But then I got home and the Box of Rock did not sound as good with my Tele as this one did so now I am regretting getting rid of this. The only problem is that it is NOISY when you crank up the gain (the BOR is definitely quieter). Lots of hiss. So I could only turn the gain up about halfway (with the voice control at about 3:00) to make the noise tolerable but I was still able to get some really good crunchy sounds out of it at that level. And if you want light grit this does that very well too. Took a little tweaking with the Voice control to get it where I wanted it, but was really happy with the result once I got it there. So for the price I don't think you can do much better. I cannot confirm how much of a tone sucker this is as I had two Joyos and had either one of them on all the time so I wouldn't really know the impact on my clean signal.

I'm not a professional musician by any stretch of the term, but I do know quality when I play it. I picked up the Joyo comp pedal just to try out...it's price is low enough to try out just for he heck of it...I thought a 2nd comp pedal might be handy. As a comparison to this pedal, my other comp pedal is '74 Dyna Comp...'73 pots, from the first run of their production. The Joyo isn't better or worse, but it's just as useful and provides a very smooth tone. Owning them I can tell the difference, but I doubt anyone elsem could if I A/B'd them for them. The Joyo is slightly quieter than the Dyna Comp, if you've never used a compression pedal...you will hear some noise, it's just the way they work. I play a 57AVRI Strat w/ Fender CS 54 pups and a 62AVRI Strat with stock pups thru a Hot Rod Deluxe. I'm VERY impressed with the Joyo comp pedal. Now here's the downside. Sound wise this is to my ears a 5 star product, build wise it's a 3 star. These pedals are not as well made as the other pedals I own, it's not build like a tank. I had also bought the Joyo Sweet Baby OD pedal, and it didn't work. Thankfully Amazon's return policy is great. Don't expect a top tier make, but the pedal's sound is great. If you're looking for a pedal to play around with, it's worth it. If you're on a budget or are new to playing this pedal is a good buy. My first comp pedal was a BOSS CS-3 and it was an awful sounding pedal compared to the Joyo.
