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.

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.

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 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.

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 love this pedal. It is clean and clear. I've not noticed any hiss or distortion from this peal being in my effects chain. This is most certainly not the worlds number 1 digital delay, but for the price it can't be beat. Though this does not have a port for an expression pedal, the Joyo digital delay is great for adding some delay to any mix. Personal I use this along side my tcelectronic flashback and use it to add some ambiance. I would like to have seen a expression port for adding the option to have tap tempo, though this would raise the price. When toggling the pedal on and off, there is an evident click (the same as all other Joyo pedals). This makes it easy to feel (and hear) when the pedal has been toggled. Its personal preference but I prefer smooth non-clicking switches like those found in tcelectronics pedals. All in all, I am very satisfied and would recommend this pedal to anyone looking for a budget friendly digital delay.

I have tried many Joyo pedals and they all seem to be amazing values for any level of player. I think this does a good job of the metal distortion tone, especially with the mid tone knob for scooping mids just to the degree you want. I tend not to overdo the ultra heavy scoop tone, but you can. It also can behave at lower gain values like a more traditional distortion. It would never be my only dirt pedal, but it is perfect for the heaviest songs in my playlist. One gripe though is that it is not true bypass as stated in the Tomtop long description. (This becomes obvious if you experiment and try to play through it "off" without any pedal power... no signal at all...which means that this pedal is never completely out of the circuit when "off" as true bypass implies). Many Joyo pedals are true bypass. Then I noticed that Joyo may be hinting at this with the pedal graphics... if you look it actually says "bypass" and not "true bypass" like several of their other pedals. (For example, I verified the vintage overdrive and crunch distortion are true bypass and they say this next to the button, but the ultimate drive is not, and it just say says "bypass" like this pedal.) Anyway, it is not a deal breaker for a decent pedal (many great pedals are not true bypass), but you should be aware they are not the same. Joyo button labeling may be more telling of the bypass wiring than the description if this is important to you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 . 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.

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.

I bought this Compressor on a budget, hoping to give a better dynamic 'feel' to my playing. I was 'hoping' for a nearly endless sustain effect, as i had gotten with compressors in the past. The first setting i tried was with the level control about half, the attack control low, and the sustain nearly all the way up. It did NOT produce the 'tube-like' compression i was 'expecting.' i played around with several scales and chord shapes and i could definitely 'feel' something was different. it didn't seem to, at first, noticeably do MUCH though, until i switched it off and compared it to the 'clean' sound. as soon as the pedal was turned off the sound was very thin, as if muffled somehow. i checked all my cables, amp settings, (turned the master up a bit) and everything was fine. Playing with the clean sound a few moments made me realize just how thin my old telecaster's tone really is, and how much this compressor 'fattens' every note played, a much more 'THERE' dynamic feel, (How else to describe a guitar effect xD) it does add SOME sustain, though it wasn't the endless sustain i expected.

I've been playing guitar for about 30 years and have gone through many pedals, guitars and various types of gear. Currently I play a 2007 Les Paul through a THD Flexi-50 and a 2x12 Avatar cab. I've played a number of overdrive pedals in the last few years and I can say without reservation, the Joyo Vintage Overdrive would probably be the "go-to" pedal if I had to choose only one. What strikes me most about this pedal is the smoothness. Many of the "boutique" pedals, like the OCD, are harsh and brittle. This thing is as smooth as silk. It's also perfect if you want to turn the gain down to "zero" and just add a little "hair" to your sound. My only complaint with this pedal is that the tone knob isn't linear in sound. When you get up to the 3-6 o'clock position, it spikes sharply. Other than that, it seems built well enough. I don't currently gig out so I can't say how it would old up on the road. I have it on quality pedalboard and I take care of my gear.

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!!

First off, I have heard and played an OCD pedal, but never owned one. I bought this pedal instead, after hearing of its unique Marshall amp big mid to low darkness. I play a fender HRD with an matching extension, and have used this pedal with a Tele Thinline, A Gibson LP and an Epiphone 335 pro. This is not a subtle overdrive pedal. this is huge and dark and big and will color your sound and beef up the bottom end. The build and controls are good, and the high end/low end switch is dramatically different in tone, but make no mistake- this is a distortion pedal- for big, 90's style wicked bottom end. It's not super versatile, and is the furthest thing from a transparent overdrive- but if that's what you want, you cannot go wrong. this is a mid range to low end booster. You want to use this with a scooped amp with a lot of head room, the same way you would use a tube screamer(except for the extreme distortion)- so if you play a Fender style amp great, if you play a Marshall style mid-hump amp, be aware, its overkill mid boost wise- it might not sound terrific.

Was a little skeptical about purchasing this pedal, reading all the reviews it really sounded like a great pedal for the money tho... I had to buy a number of pedals to complete my pedal board: EQ, Patch chords for 8 pedals, Compressor (2- bought 1 comp for my guitar player buddy also)and Bought the Fuzz Moo (which I returned cus it was noisy). To my surprise AMAZON didnt send me my purchased compressors (2), instead sent 1 compressor/1 Ultimate Overdrive by mistake! Well i was gunna return it with the fuzz, (annoyed i didnt get my compressor) but after hearing it, I kept it. Its options, sound, and quality was a nice surprise. I still have to get a compressor, but if your on the fence about this and need or cld have a 2nd distortion/OD (this is a great smooth to aggressive quality distortion, '70s to Mod distortions) get this for the money its a home run period. Ive been playing for yrs,

Mine had the same drop some have mentioned...and if there is enough room on the 10k trimmer I could see how an increase could be a problem on some too...try adjusting the 10k trimmer to compensate (NOT THE 20K trimmer...that is used to bias the optoisolator!)...if you cant get enough sweep on the trimmer, swap the internal 10k trimmer out with a 100k trimmer and set it to unity gain...you can also mount the replacement trimmer so you can access it by removing the bottom plate...SUPER easy mod that makes this a completely passable cheap copy of the Supa-Trem ;) you can also add a hard/soft switch with a little work.... Also worth noting that the amount of volume/boost changes with the intensity control...less intensity, less volume drop...I found that using a dB meter on my phone was the quickest way to set this...dial the Intensity control into a range you are likely to use the most and set it for that. Just ordered a backup. As cheap as it is even 2 are cheaper than buying what it was copied from....the jacks are super cheap as is the switch and the wiring is not so hot, but for the price you cant really beat it...

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.
