I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality, workmanship, and sonic output of this little inexpensive pedal. I was almost ready to sell a 2009 American Strat after replacing the Texas Specials with DG-20's, because I couldn't get the depth of tone or sustain I was looking for. Whether played through Peavey VYPYR 30, VYPER 60, or VOX AC 15 the tone was thin....compared to Les Paul Studio Lite with Pearly Gates humbuckers. Added the JOYO, and the Strat instantly started singing: rich, full midrange particularly, but in general, the presence just rings like a bell. Sweet!

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. (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 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.

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

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!!

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.

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 Tomtop 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,

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 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.

It's a tremolo pedal. The amp I'm using these days (Quilter Aviator) does not have tremolo so I bought a pedal. I have owned one other considerably more expensive tremolo pedal but sold it because it was too big. For the record...I don't hear much difference between the expensive one and the Joyo. The Joyo pedal appears to be well constructed and does the tremolo thing nicely and it's pretty quiet. The controls for "rate" (speed) and "intensity" are what I've been used to on Fender amps and are adequate for my purposes. I'd recommend this pedal.

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 F*****e 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...

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 Amazon. 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 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've had the Joyo JF-09 tremolo pedal for a few months and have sufficient time on it to provide a fair review. I'd give it 3.9 out of 5 stars. Pros: Simple, cheap, good battery life. Cons: Not quite as intense as a tremolo should be. A good, strong tremolo should penetrate much deeper than this one, to the point where your ears and body really feel it. If you've stood in front of a Fender Twin Reverb with the tremolo cranked you'll get the picture. Or listen to "How Soon Is Now" by the Smiths. I can't that level of thick, throbbing, pulsating sonic thrust that engorges the room from this tremolo. Overall, for the price it's not bad. I'd rather save the money for other effects because tremolo is pretty low on the effects chain. If your not a dedicated tremolo snob, then get this one, but don't expect earthshaking tremolo. There are videos and DIY mods for this unit. If I undertake it I'll post an update.

If you're looking for that vintage TS tone, this is a solid buy. This is the second Joyo I've bought (also have the tremolo). In general, they deliver as promised at a very nice price point. You'll find that the range in variation for the knob settings tends to be a little quirky on the Joyos -- for instance, the tone knob will not do much for several ticks and then suddenly the sound will change significantly. Same with drive and volume. But with just a little patience, I'm still able to nail down good settings. I use this for both my strat and my weissenborn lap slide, going into a '62 Fender champ. I suspect any good tube amp will get along well with this pedal. The distortion sound is mild, mid-rangy and smooth, pretty much the TS profile. Don't get this if you want heavy distortion or fuzz -- there are other pedals for that. This pedal can give you a nice tube-y sounding boost with a smooth breakup on power chords. For soloing on higher strings it's mainly a boost with a little sustain. Doesn't kill your tone, but it does have a mid-rangy EQ profile, so you're not going to get a big bass boost with it. Build quality seems solid, but I haven't gigged with this guy yet. Huge value for the money.

I needed a phaser, and saw that the Joyo Vintage Phaser was rated well, and super cheap, so I bought it. I was EXTREMELY impressed with it, and did some further research into their pedals. This was one of their top-rated pedals, so I figured I'd give it a go. I have to say that I am fairy impressed! I get a wide range of tones coming out of this little box - anything from a light fuzz to a vintage-style high gain. You won't get a modern metal crunch from it, so if that's what you're looking for, look elsewhere. If you want a nice distortion to replicate stuff from the 70's and 80's, then this is a great bet. This pedal is currently plugged in, and I suspect that I'll keep it as part of my rig (unless I happen to get rich and find a nicer, boutique pedal, or get around to modding my other pedals.) As a reference: I own several Boss distortion/over drive pedals (Japanese DS-1, SD-1, OD-3 and MT-2.) I The Joyo JF-02 and OD-3 are the two drive pedals that I have hooked up, since they are by far the best sounding and most versatile drive pedals that I currently own. A side-note for the tone-freaks: The peddle does seem to be a bit muddy. It's great for jamming out power chords, but not so articulate when you're arpeggiating chords. (Still noticeable when you back off the gain on the pedal but crank the volume on the amp.)

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 needed something to take my rock amplifier into metal territory. The first thing I tried was an MXR Prime Distortion, but it didn't have enough oomph. The next thing I tried was the MXR Fullbore Metal, and that was good, but I felt like it took complete control of my tone. I lost the sound of my amp. It was also had a high end that was difficult to tame. So I thought I'd try an OD pedal instead. I don't dig Tube Screamers, and all the reviews said this was an OCD clone. I don't actually know - I've never played an OCD pedal. Too rich for my blood. I tried this one because it was cheap and true bypass. Well, the tone is perfect. Combined with my amp's tone, it's enough to push my tone from hard rock into metal, but without losing the core elements of my tone that are so important to me. I don't use it for solos or boosting or any of that. I use it strictly to thicken up my rhythm tone for my heaviest songs. It's perfect for that. In fact, I'm surprised that an overdrive pedal - one that sounds pretty "overdrivey" when the amp is clean - has the capability of taking me into metal territory. But this does the trick. Saved me from having to get a new amplifier. Truth be told, it is a little noisier than I expected. It is probably less noisy when the amp's gain is lower, so I'll assume most of the noise is due to my own rig's settings. I can live with the noise. When the whole band is playing, you don't notice it. Overall, just a great overdrive. Not too trebly, not too gainy, not thin. Worth twice what I paid for it. Well done, Joyo.

This thing sounds amazing- except for one small problem: At higher gain settings it hisses like a mother. I'm not talking about extreme settings, just gain and "character" (thats what Tech 21calls it- forgot what Joyo calls it) at 3 o'clock. It has a beautiful WARM singing lead tone-better than any pedal that I have owned ( and that's probably 20-30 distortion/overdrive pedals) If only it didn't hiss so much it would be my main lead pedal. If you have a Rocktron Hush or other noise gate pedal, it is worth considering. The Joyo is an EXACT clone of the Tech 21British pedal, which costs $189 (?). I don't know it the tech 21 has the same hissing problem or not.

I don't know if it lives up to all the hype and mystical powers of the all-mighty vintage tube screamers of Ibanez, but it is an exact clone including the same component values, potentiometers, ICs (JRC), etc. For proof that it is exactly the same, I was able to modify it for different frequency response (corner frequency), and add asymmetrical clipping with the exact same components in exactly the same spot in the circuit as seen in TS9 mods. Of course the board is layed out a little differently. The only reason I gave it 4 (really 4.5) stars was because it does produce some noticeable noise (hiss) at higher gains, but this is expected given the boosting stage acts like a high pass filter (this gives it the characteristic mid-range boost). It can be cut with the tone control, but it also may have been due to a poorly shielded amplifier, and or a one-spot power adapter.
