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.

Great pedal. Quiet. I put it in the effects loop of my Fender Studio Lead (50 watt, solid state) amp on the clean channel, and I can dial in the Vox AC-30 coolness, the hollow mids and that distinctive crunchy gain sound. My new and improved tone made me so excited to play again that I couldn't tear myself away from the front of my amp. I wanted to give this pedal 5 stars, and yes, I love this pedal. I got lucky with this one. But, I have issues overall with Joyo quality control. I have two other Joyo pedals that I like but have noise issues, and one that arrived dead in the box (but was replaced easily and promptly by the seller). So as not to over rate Joyo I thought a 4-star rating would be more fair. That being said, if this pedal were lost or stolen, I'd order another one immediately, despite Joyo's quality control problem.

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 :-)

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.

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.

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.

Good: Plenty of gain on hand. Lots of sustain! This thing can get really loud. It gives your inexpensive tube amp that Marshall crunch. Built well, it's casing is made out of metal, not plastic. Inexpensive but performs and sounds just as well as boutique boxes costing 3 times as much. If you're looking for your first cheap distortion pedal, forget the Boss DS-1 and get this one! Well worth the money. Bad: Adds a little noise & hiss specially to single coils (strats & teles). You might need to use a noise gate to tame the noise. Quieter with humbuckers but hums when I use it with my Xotic EP Booster which I always keep on. It doesn't happen when I boost my overdrives (OCD & Hardwire CM-2). If you move farther away from your amp, the hum disappears but you can still hear some noise. I guess this is typical for distortion boxes. No need to boost it though, it already has that thick & big sound to start with. It didn't come with a 9V battery as shipped, not a big deal 'cause I use a power adapter anyway.

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.

After a few months' use, I would say I am happy with it. As to the build of the pedal, no complaints. Everything is adequately sturdy, and the aluminum is solid and sits well on the floor unlike lightweight plastic pedals. As to function, this pedal is EXTREMELY noisy, lots of buzz with no input plugged in. The octave feature does not sound good to me at all, it is somewhat clear that it is an octave up on the high strings at specific frequencies, but overall it just sounds like noise. Compared to an EH octave pedal, this is a stinker. The fuzz sounds very good, though, thick and with good sustain. Playing LP with humbuckers through a Dual Showman or a vintage Kustom solid state.

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.

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

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.

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 bought this pedal to use with my acoustic for live shows in order to even out the dynamics, ie avoid large jumps in volume and slightly boost quieter moments. For that it works perfectly. I have a few other compressor pedals and this one sounds different from the others, it's much more subtle. If you want to get a squished chicken-pickin' sound, this probably won't do it for you. Even on max settings this does not give that kind of sound. But I'm OK with that. I like how it sounds and to my ear it's entirely transparent. I don't notice any change in my acoustic guitar's tone. So yeah, this thing is awesome. I'm only giving 4 stars because I'm interested to see how the thing holds up. Most likely culprits would be the switch or the jacks. We'll see.

It's not a Maxon or an Ibanez, but for thirty clams, it's probably the best clone out there as far as tone, quality and construction. Solid aluminum housing, nice build quality, and clean interior. Quiet switch. Looks and reacts like true bypass to me. No noise unless the knobs are dimed out and even then it's mostly feedback, which doesn't bother me. If you've ever owned the real deal, you realize right away that this pedal comes pretty close to matching a lot of the same tones of an 808 or a TS9. (Includes the JRC4588 chip that tubes creamers are renowned for.) The drive and volume knobs provide good variation and work together well. The tone knob gets about a 12 o'clock setting and everything to the right of that was way too bright and thin for my liking. This is the point of separation between this well done clone and the real deal. I dropped it on my main pedal board rig between the EQ and distortion pedals... plays real nice with the Pro Co RAT at low distortion levels... jumped between driving blues and AC/DC riffs nicely, which is straight up how I measure a good overdrive. Sounded great through my Blackstar head (clean channel) through Celestion V30s. Put it alone on my modded Ampeg R212R and drove it into pretty sweet blues territory. Gets real dirty if you amp up the drive and volume. Sensitive tone dial is going to take some time to get used to. Bottom line. It's a quality cheap fix for replacing a TS. It doesn't stop me gassing hard for a Maxon OD 808, but it will serve as a great back up and a standalone for my second rig. I'm happy in between tube screamers, let's see how long it lasts.

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.

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...

Does it have a huge range? No. Does it increase and decrease the volume of your signal with reasonable variability like a tremolo pedal should? Yes. For a $40 pedal it does what you need it to do. Very sturdy design. Nice and compact. My only negative criticism is when you turn the pedal on or off there is a distinct click that gets sent through the rest of your chain. If you're in the back line of a band and you want to inconspicuously turn this pedal on or off (i.e. during a moment of silence or a quite time), you'll need a mute of some sort after it otherwise everyone will hear you click it on or off... especially if you have a reverb and/or a delay pedal on after it as well.
April 13, 2016
Nice, durable casing. The only issue I had with the pedal is that the plastic knobs are a bit sticky, and seems like they'll probably strip soon....but the metal posts in the knobs are fine. Nice fuzzy tone. It seems to be true bypass, which is a plus. May just be buffered, but it doesn't suck tone. The standard fuzz sound is a bit shrill to my ears, but with a little eq'ing of the tone knob you can make it work. The octave option is kind of an afterthought. If you are buying this because of the octave option, my advice is don't do it. It really makes little to no sonic difference to me, just adds a little fizzy metallic ring sound, like a dim ring mod, and really only cuts through on single notes or power chords, which is true of a lot of octave fuzz pedals. In my opinion, this pedal excells with the mid-cut engaged. It gives you that nice, fat, fuzzy sound that is great for big, fuzzy walls of sound when ran through some reverb, while leaving those mid tones open for lead guitars, vox, etc. It also is a warmer, fuller tone with the mid-cut on. Some people would disagree 100% with this, and tell you the mid cut sucks and the standard sound is fine. I suppose it depends on your sound and what you are going for. I bought this pedal for MBV/JAMC Shoegaze fuzz/wall of sound and it does the job. I only use fuzz on a couple of my songs, so I didn't want to spend more than I needed. All is in all, this pedal does what it is supposed to and does it well, and the price is right. I would suggest trying one out on your own prior to buying, but if you just can't wait then give it a whirl. I got mine for about $40 and it's well worth it.
