I have played guitar for 20+ years. Used to play live weekly, but currently 10-12 times a year. Until recently I used a Live 6 POD HD 300 for club gigs for ease of switching between tones and plugging directly into a PA , but recently it developed a problem and I've decided to go another direction. I've decided to go back to floor stomps, but I don't want to break the bank on boutique pedals that are going to get some abuse on a stage. I have quite a few random pedals, but needed a phaser. The amp used is a Bogner Alchemist with a variety of guitars. I grabbed this because of the price point and the positive experience with another Joyo pedal, the Ultimate Drive. Is it an MXR Phase 90? No, but it isn't bad either. It's a fairly subtle phase and you can turn the knob quite a bit without a massive change in tone or sound. If you are looking for a phaser that dramatically changes your tone this may not be the one, but I'm actually quite pleased with it since I like my effects to be fairly plug and play and a subtler phase was what I was looking for. It does get close to the early EVH brown sound phase, but isn't quite as thick. Works well with other pedals, but not the quietest pedal when engaged which is to be expected with a phaser. Doesn't seem to overly suck tone or volume when bypassed as part of a chain. I can't speak to the durability yet since I have only had it for a week. The other Joyo product I have has worked fine for three months. The battery leads seem flimsy and I don't think any Joyo pedals would survive long term abuse and serious neglect, but I think this one would be just fine for causal live playing and bedroom use. The one I received didn't have the horse graphic, but is orange. Overall my two experiences with Joyo pedals have so far been positive. You might not impress tone purists with any Joyo pedals but value seeking guitarists will appreciate them and 99% of people listening to you won't notice any difference. If I needed a chorus or delay I would consider other Joyo pedals, but right now this pedal finishes my board.

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.

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 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.

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.

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've had enough pedals to pay off my home. I love hard rockin crunchy guitar tones. This pedal delivers a good solid crunch. I have a recording studio so I AB'd it against a few other non tube pedals I have at stage volume. Running into an isolated miked amp /cab set up it did well but not as well as my Tech 21 GT2, my Seymour Duncan Power Grid or my Digitech Hardwire TL-2! These three pedals just sounded better. The JF-03 had a bit of muddiness in the midrange and didn't have the amp like sag that my better pedals have. I recommend using an eq with this pedal to clean up the mids. I have never owned a MI crunch box so I don't know how well it replicates it's sound. You do get what you pay for and there are better pedals out there for not a whole lot more but the JF-03 is hard to beat for the money. Cheers!

I bought this pedal a while back, maybe a couple of months... I waited to write a review about it because i didnt want to leave some hyped up garbage and have it fail miserably after a short while... Im happy to say that after a few months im still very impressed with this pedal. The hp lp switch makes it very versatile and it doesn't lose the bottom end the way my other overdrive pedals do(Boss Blues Driver, and BBE Green Screamer). It keeps the bass frequencies right where they should be and just overdrives your signal in a sweet way... Im not ususally a person to write reviews but this pedal inspired me to do so. The one thing i will say about the pedal thats a little different for me, is the volume is very high to start with... i keep mine about half and half on the volume and gain... It has a lot more headroom but im not really up for blowing people away with my mind melting solos. Overall the build quality is really impressive. I looked at the Fulltone OCD and compared the idea of spending another hundred bucks for it but ultimately decided to pass. If your in the market for a cheap pedal that performs and you aren't overly concerned with a "Brand Namer" Then this is probably the pedal for You... Im very happy with mine.

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 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.

For this price, it would be stupid for me not to have purchased it. If you play in churches or just go direct with your band, this is a great backup to an amp. It has a wide variety of tones and thickness to use. It doesn't get super heavy, even with a metal distortion without sounding pretty bad, but if you stay away from metal, this thing can be your ace in the hole. Here's an example where it saved me. I played at an event that would be hard to describe so I'm going to simplify it to this: There were a lot of musicians that jumped in and out for various songs and we quickly ran out of XLR spots and that all they had for me was a quarter inch aux jack. What this meant was that they told me that I could not use my usual rig of an Orange Micro Terror amp (20W tube preamp) into a direct box with cab emulation. The headphone out sounded terrible so I was pretty much without an amp. So I went to my bag, took the Joyo JF-16 British amp simulator out and plugged my pedal board into it and then the mixer. I dialed in a decent tone and saved the day. Of course, an actual amp is better, but in a tough situation or for practice, this pedal is great. Just don't expect it to revolutionize your tone like I did when I got this before I got my orange micro terror.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 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 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 (with Amazon Prime 2 day...yay Amazon! Love you guys!). 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.

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.
