I think this would make a great first time fuzz pedal for anyone. I just replaced my Russian Big Muff Pi with a Fulltone '70 BC Fuzz and had I not bought the Fulltone this would stay on my pedal board. I would think side by side you'll notice the difference between the two. The Fulltone being a little better sound and full but I could easily swap this in and most people would probably not be able to tell the difference. The Octave portion is what I wanted and it's ok but I've only heard them before and never used them so maybe it just isn't for me. I haven't spent a lost of time with. I don't feel slighted in the least with the price. I've spent $150 on pedals that I hated so there it is. If you have good tone between just your amp and guitar then everything else should just enhance it and this will do just that. Now we'll see how long it lasts.

When I first fired this pedal up and started turning the knobs I hated it. Then I found the presence pot inside and also started using some unconventional settings. Most distortion pedals I own sound best with their volume knobs past 2 'clock, tone around noon and distortion 3' oclock. Not this one folks. At least not for me. The magic really happened for me when I dialed the presence pot back a little bit, turned the tone knob all the way up, volume around 9'oclock and gain way down around 7'oclock and MAGIC!! Excellent AC/DC type rhythm sounds (but it does have it's own thing too kind of) and outstanding lead tones when engaging the gain channel on my amp. Bump the volume on the pedal up a little if you want a volume boost for leads but make sure to compensate with the clean channel amp volume. I paid under 30 dollars for this pedal brand new and it's better than some of my pedals costing double or more. My only gripe with it is the audible "pop" it makes when engaging it but I am keeping my rating at 4 stars because it's going to be an "always on" pedal for me. So if you buy this pedal be sure to take the back cover off and adjust the presence pot to your liking. Me I liked it dialed back some, you may like it turned up some. As I said at first I thought this pedal sucked until I started to dial it in with some unusual settings. now it's going to be a mainstay on my board and will be my main rhythm crunch. I'm even going to buy another one as a backup. Great job on this one 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 Tomtop. 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.

Great clone of a much more expensive Crunch Box pedal. True bypass. Knobs and switch are sturdy. Great for amps that have only a master volume and no gain knob because you can dial in the dirt at bedroom levels. This is a Marshall type distortion (more mids, less scooped). No Brutalzzz - there are better pedals to cop the scooped 5150 or triple rectofier kachunky palm muting downtuned type thing, but you can get close with the right amp EQ and this thing dimed. I agree with another reviewer- this thing has a very high output- so be forewarned the first time you plug in. Unity is around 8 o'clock on the level knob. It gets thumbs up for the sound/price ratio. If you don't mind a longer shipping time, these pedals can be found more cheaply by searching the web. This was my fourth Joyo pedal and I believe Joyo and the Dano Cool Cat line are some of the better deals going these days in terms of price/quality.

I wanted to experiment with one of these, read lots of reviews and settled on this one mostly due to price, and the fact that I've had good luck so far with Joyo pedals. If I was going to use this effect a lot, I might have gone with a more expensive pedal, but right now, I'm glad I didn't. The octave effect is strong if used properly; I am setting (Fuzz) it at 8 o'clock, using the neck pickup, and accepting the fact that any of these only have a strong effect on certain parts of the neck (around the 10th to 15th fret, listen to Blue on Black; he's playing it there). The fuzz is a little too over the top for my tastes, but I think all of this type effect has something similar. I wish you could turn on the octave with a little less (or no) fuzz; the fuzz button has to be on for the octave to work (I think they all work that way though). That's why I'm giving it a 4, along with the fact that it is a big pedal. Construction seems fine, bypass seems to work. Overall, a good buy for the money, fun to goof around with, and something I will probably use twice in a night.

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.

I wanted a basic, cheap compressor to provide some sustain and to even out rhythmic playing. I've seen a review where someone said the compression was too subtle, but that's exactly what I wanted! I set it up with a fast attack and mid sustain (about 12 o clock) and set the level so it was the same volume on or off. You can crank it up to saturate the sound too. I found I basically left it on for most of the songs in our covers set. For some songs, like U2 or Police I whop up the sustain and the compression is more evident. I have a Line 6 M9 modeller with compressors based on the Boss compressors and I find it sucks the tone and level such that I don't use them. I'm thinking about putting this compressor in front of the M9, but I might check out the Xotic compressor as well for something more high end.

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.

I've probably got too many distortions, overdrives and dirtboxes. Right now, I've got my trusty MXR script Logo, a BOSS OS-2, a Boss FZ-5, a home-made distortion based on the shredmaster, and now, this little number. I got this one because i heard the hype about it, and about the OCD that it supposedly rips off, and well, yes, it's a really good distortion pedal. It does have some overdrive character, but it's got more of the hard clipping distortion. A TS9, this is not. In that respect, it's definitely able to do the "Marshall in a box' thing that people like. But, by bringing the gain down, setting it on the high switch, and bringing the level knob past noon, it's a really solid Boost pedal. By bringing up the gain ( and bringing down the level) you can get some really saturated distortion- but it does get a bit fizzy on the really high gain settings. I've only had it a few hours, so I've not yet dialed in the settings I'll stick with, but they are definitely there. It can get a bit boomy with a neck humbucking pick up, but, on the bridge humbucker, and on the neck with a single coil, it pretty much instantly goes for a great mid range voiced distortion. It's worth the 30 or so dollars, at least.

I was a bit skeptical at first because of the price and the fact it's from China but it's working out even better than expected. First off, I run an Am. Strat through a 40watt boutique tube amp (ChromeDome) so I'm very conscious of tone loss when things are added to the signal chain. Tube screamers and the like (digital pedals with no real bypass) are literally useless when you have a high-end amp; why invest $1500+ on an amp and then choke the signal with a digital pedal? This JOYO pedal has TRUE BYPASS that means when the pedal is off the signal is pretty close to what it would be if you plugged straight in to the amp. This is why I can say this pedal beats the Tube Screamer hands down. This cheap knock off pedal actually works better with higher-end amps than a Tube Screamer but on the flip side, if you have an entry level amp save your money for a Tube Screamer. If you have a good amp and a good sound you'll want the JOYO because of it pretty much just 'boosts' what is already there. If you have an entry level amp you'll want a true Tube Screamer because you don't want more of your amp's sound you want to disguise it. The JOYO's gain is minimal but it's extremely useful if you already have the sound you want and just need a little more juice.

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 I would suggest it to anyone looking to get a pedal that would do overdrive and distortion it is a little more on the gain side and has a fizzy characteristic not to fuzzy however imo. Its fairly responsive too and the eq is opposite of say a tube screamers pronounced mids so rather flat eq. Plenty of volume and is a clone of the fulltone OCD if you want overdrive that doesn't sound like a tube screamer than this is for you. And botique quality at paupers price.true bypass so no tone loss props to joyo. P.s. crunch distortion is also an awesome pedal by joyo which does plexi tones well and is very crunchy.

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.

Pretty cool knock-off of the Schaller trem or Diaz Tremodillo. This is my 2nd or 3rd Joyo pedal, and my favorite thus far. I don't care for the cheap jacks, but you get what you pay for, and I can always replace them if they break (I work on pedals all the time). I've got a scratchbuilt improved EA Trem (with two footswitchable speeds) and a cheap little Danelectro Tuna Melt. Other than the crummy bypass and plastic construction, the Tuna Melt is my favorite since it has the hard/soft switch. The improved EA has a great preamp for guaranteed unity gain (or more), and the footswitchable speeds that I added gives it extra flexibility. But I think the Joyo trumps it by just a little bit in that the core trem sound is a nice blend of the Tuna Melt's hard and soft settings. So part of this is really a subjective take on this flavor of trem, but suffice it to say if you've tried a few, this one will probably satisfy you at least a bit. No unity gain issues, and the speed and depth have a good sweep throughout their ranges. And it's just a niggle, but how hard would it be to get the word "tremolo" silkscreened so that it's centered on the box? At least there's no skull and flames like on the High Gain Distortion.

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.

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.

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 normally don't write reviews, but I like this pedal. I does not sound exactly like a Marshall, but we all know that the only way to accomplish that is to buy a Marshall. I have never used the Tech 21 British pedal that this is a clone of so I can not say how close it comes to that, but I won't be dropping $170.00 anytime soon to find out either. I bought this to run on a VHT Special 6, which is a single ended tube amp. I am running Mullard re-issue 12ax7's and a NOS RCA 6V6GT. With that set up this pedal does a pretty good Marshall tone. Gets even closer if I swap the 6v6 for a EL84. In fact, it does the best $35 worth of Marshall tone I have ever bought for $35. The settings are very close to the Tech 21 setting guide, at least to my ear. I can get a fairly decent vintage Plexi out of it. The true bypass is also clean, unlike other clone "true bypass" pedals I have tried that were not actually true bypass and sucked the tube tone right out of my amp. It's not a high gain pedal, more of a boost and voicing/foundation pedal. I liked it better than my tube screamer clone as a boost so I don't even use that pedal now. It works good in my effects loop too which is actually touchy on that amp. The EQ is nice if you have a small tube amp that has a fixed tone stack like mine. This pedal also does not take away from tube amp responsiveness to touch and attack like my tube screamer clone does. It does get noisy like other reviewers have stated, especially when you start to crank the voice knob past 12:00 or dime the drive.That's why I only gave this pedal 4 stars. Otherwise, for value for the money I would have gave it a five. I'm impressed at what Joyo put into this for the price, and I will try their other pedals in the future now.
