I'm a bassist... I can play guitar, keyboards, a handful of other instruments too, but I'm mostly a bassist. Low notes tend to sound kinda questionable bumping into each other, so I'm not going to use this often-- especially live. That being said, I like chords ringing out a little longer during chord melody pieces on my 7 string. How often am I asked to do that instead of hitting eighth notes? Not often. So... I didn't want to spend much on a very simple pedal. 30 bucks was great... so I went for it. There's three knobs here. Do you need more? I didn't. The level worked smoothly, the time is a bit inexact (click against muted strings for a quick glimpse of your effect tempo when you have to), and the repeat can give you a wave of static feedback at faster delay times if you need or want it. I needed dotted quarter notes, mostly, with the level about three-quarters up, repeat count low... works like a charm. Two complaints. The 9V battery that came with the pedal died within twenty minutes of putting it in. I figured this would happen, though. I could disregard that and only complain once here, sure... except that: The battery compartment is quite tight. So tight in fact that I have a little bite taken out of my right hand's middle knuckle from wiggling the battery out. I might be bitter about the personal injury, but I'm deducting a star for that-- and warning the next potential buyer. If all of Joyo's pedals have this cramped a battery space, I would be aware but not really wary of it. Just something to consider... or get a power supply. I won't be using the pedal that often, but it is superb at the simple task it does.

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 Tomtop'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.

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 :-)

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'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.

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 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.

I bought this pedal recently after seeing the reviews here, and others elsewhere. I've been looking for a pedal to replace my much loved, but unreliable TubeWorks Real Tube. I've tried quite a few pedals in this price range, and above, including a Cool Cat Distortion, a modified DS-1, modded TS-9, and a Visual Sound Jekyl and Hyde. All of these listed failed to approach the crunchiness and squishy mids of the Real Tube. This pedal, however comes the closest. The mids are a little more pronounced than I would like, but it's within the range of what I can easily dial out with my amp's EQ. There's tons of gain on tap; I've read several reviews stating otherwise, and I cannot agree with them. Into a mostly clean amp, I have the gain set to roughly 10 o'clock, and I have enough gain to play Van Halen and the like. Above 12 o'clock, the gain gets kinda mushy. There is plenty of volume on tap. Unity is around 9 o'clock, 11-12 o'clock provides a nice boost. Above that it will overdrive your amp's preamp pretty hard. The pedal cleans up when I roll the volume back, and it is a very defined distortion. There's plenty of clarity here (and I have not yet messed with the internal trim pot). So far I am very happy with it.

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.

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.

Guys, this is a really good sounding pedal. It has enough highs-lows-mids to make you smile. The sound is similar to pedals costing much more. Of course, everything is based on taste and the kind of music you play. This is not a super scooped metal pedal. It's best for strong overdrives and smooth grudge sounds. The big factor about this pedal compared to more expensive pedals is that it doesn't like HEAT. I had a gig in Detroit on a metal stage with a 100 degree PLUS day. The pedal didn't like it at all. My BOSS Blues driver was just fine. Of course the Blues Driver is a $100 pedal. It took the temps just fine. So, that is, in my opinion, the big difference between what you get with JOYO vs other, more expensive, pedals. Keep in mind, if you are not playing in 100 degree temperatures you have nothing to fear. So, rock on and enjoy your music!!

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.

I bought the Joyo Ultimate OD mainly because it was cheap and I wanted something to stack with my Bad Monkey, which would have a little more drive. Very pleased. Now for a deeper look. I keep the mini toggle on LOW as it compresses the signal and creates a bluesy tone. The HIGH position is looser and louder-not bad at all, just not my style. Most folks will probably prefer HIGH over LOW. Build quality is as good as anything else. Not sure what's under the hood, but the pots and switches are good quality as are the jacks and 9V connection. The pots all have easily discoverable sweet spots. I had it dialed in to my preferences in minutes. It IS gain-y. With the drive at 10 o'clock it provides what I'm looking for. Higher gain settings are nice, too. I use the Bad Monkey to push the U OD, setting the Monkey's gain very low and the level up to push the volume and clarity of the U OD for solo work. Great results with Fender tube amps, a red stripe Peavey Bandit and an assortment of tube and SS modelers. If you are looking for that "in between drive" tone straddling OD and Distortion...this will make you happy. Plays well with stacked pedals and is tube and SS amp friendly. Downside....? That hideous devil face graphic. It's embarrassing! Woulda got a 5 without the devil face...LOL.

Honestly, I just bought this a throw-in to bump an order up to get some small items shipped, but for the price, I was surprised... I had heard that the Joyo stuff was great value, but I didn't think I'd be as in love with this little thing as I am! As you can tell from the name and the colors, this is essentially a budget clone of the venerable Ibanez Tube Screamer (it even uses the same chip as the orginal.) It's got three controls like the original (Drive, Volume, and Tone.) The bright yellow knobs are easy to see, even in a darkened room. It claims true bypass on the pedal... now I've heard varying accounts as to if the Joyo Pedals actually are true bypass (some things I've read say they use Millenium Bypass, and I haven't cracked this open and ogled the board) but what I can say is that this pedal seems pretty transparent when it's off. It can be powered by 9V batteries or a 9V DC center negative adapter. It seems very solidly built, despite being stupid cheap. As for tone: it's classic moderate-gain Tube Screamer stuff, with the mid-hump that the originals were known for. Sounds great to give a clean amp a little bit of dirt (using a strat with the neck pickup on a clean tube amp gives a very nice SRV-type tone) or for driving an already crunchy amp further. Even with the tone knob dimed, it's fairly mellow in sound, not shrill or grating at all. It's not an incredibly versatile pedal -if you're looking for super-hi gain or Big Muff type tones, this won't be your bag- but what it does it does well. There is a slight bit of noise, but nothing out of line for a gain-based effect. I've heard much worse. You can't go too wrong with this pedal for the price, really.

I bought this pedal for fourteen smackers and that included prime two day shipping on a special that amazon had. I sanded it and took off the demon picture and repainted it. I still don't understand the devil thing and hard rock music. What makes people want things that represent evil? Anyway, it is a decent pedal. It is very much a distortion pedal not an overdrive. Even at the lowest setting it is mildly distorted. There is NO clean sound from this pedal. It can't be used as a clean boost. At about 8 o'clock on the gain knob you will notice a fairly quick jump from "not much" to "noticeable" distortion. It is not real gradual as you might think. The tone knob can give you shrill treble when dimed out and at about 12 oclock it becomes very muddy. It can cause some serious feedback when turned up, and that can be fun.....or not. Next to my Klon it sounds very compressed and therefore can get lost in the mix. Having said all that, it's not bad for the money. I would not have it on my board as a standard, but for the occasional Hendrix song it can scream.

This pedal I find pretty darn good. I use it with gain at 12 o clock or less. It really cuts through the mix for me. It can go from mild to bombastic, and that was nice for my new board build that is only sporting two od/dist pedals. I like setting it for crunch rhythm than drive it with my joyo vintage overdrive pedal for soloing. Those two pedals works nicely together. Simple, tough design, good tone, great price! Time will tell how it lasts? They test before shipping which is nice! Most the time their price is cheaper at than their own site. I've called them for questions, got a human and some good advice as well. Don't get them shipped from China, too long and you don't really save more than 2-5 bucks. I love all my joyos, biyangs and donners. Got a moen shaky jimi gen. 3 on the way, that one was a whopping 63 bucks, lol ,the gem of my board hopefully! I currently have 6 joyos, 2 biyangs, 1 donnor and a moen on the way. Yes I support the no tone snobbery way, but firmly support good tone!

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.

This box really does make some nice AC-15/AC-30 sounds. It's also very nice as a booster or overdrive when turned down a bit. The Low, Mid and High settings are nice too. I turned the High knob down a bit to roll off some ice-pick sounds and it didn't kill the fun... but the real action is in the Voice and Gain knobs. I think maybe it puts out more gain than you'd really want wide open. It sure sounds wicked, but stop playing with the Gain cranked up and it really is a hissing beast. I think shielding could be better done or maybe it needs a noise-gate...but it's still a very cool pedal. All in all, it's a bargain pedal with some unique properties. I'm not sorry I bought it, just which it was a little quieter.

This is an edit of an earlier more negative review where, it seems, my third-party power supply introduced considerable unwanted noise into the overall effect. That problem's now been remedied with a new pedal power adapter, and the Joyo chorus effect is indeed a joy. This pedal performs best as a mid-depth chorus effect and not for the deeper underwater effect of other big-name pedals. The Joyo seems well suited to this more moderate purpose and does not add excessive treble to the signal, either. I still hold that there's no easy way to access the battery compartment and, I swear, the back screws were tightened to the point I was unable to remove them. Maybe some units ship with an easily removable back panel, but certainly not mine. Recently I purchased the Joyo American Sound amp emulating box and the Joyo Tremolo pedal, both of which have an easy opening rear plastic hatch. Why not the Analog Chorus? Anyway, I'm now enjoying this pedal and appreciate the hole it fills in between the high-depth and low-depth positions of the name-brand small clone chorus. Thanks, Joyo.
