For the money spent, this pedal is nice. I will start by saying, however, that is is not a total digital delay. In a digital delay, there is no decay of notes played- it keeps repeating perfect copies of the note played. With analogue, there is more decay with each repeat (a copy of a copy of a copy, etc). Analogue delay is great and the pedal sounds good, but as a matter of technicality the title is a bit of a misnomer. The construction is solid and I have no complaints about durability. It is (as advertised) true bypass and does not color your tone. The sound is good- other than the fact that it is actually analogue it sounds good. It is reasonably versatile and can get a decent range of delay tones. Maybe not ideal for the 800MM "Edge" sounds, but it can give anything from slap-back to Floyd-esque sounds. the pedal is good on it's own, but I feel it works best stacked with other pedals on your board for extra delay, ambiance or texture. Not amazing, but a very good, usable pedal at an affordable price.

Thank goodness for internet reviews which steered me towards trying this pedal. For the price I don't think anything out there can beat it. Has a very good range of distortion from alternative crunch to metal insanity. The high/low switch is a nice touch although I'm hard pressed to find a reason to take it off of "high". The build quality seems very solid. I only use the pedal to mess around with at home and in my project studio so I can't attest to it's road worthiness but it seems like it would hold up quite well. My only complaint is that I did run into the radio interference problem some other have spoken of. I live about 15 miles from a primary radio hub in the area and at different times of the day (can't figure that one out) I've picked up a slight, but noticeable, signal from one of the stations. Normally a problem like that would knock it down at least two stars but it's such a good sounding pedal, at such a great price, I can live with a faint hint of Taylor Swift coming through my amp on occasion. Highly recommended.

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

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.

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 normally don't write reviews, but I like this pedal. I does not sound exactly like a Marshall, but we all know that the only way to accomplish that is to buy a Marshall. I have never used the Tech 21 British pedal that this is a clone of so I can not say how close it comes to that, but I won't be dropping $170.00 anytime soon to find out either. I bought this to run on a VHT Special 6, which is a single ended tube amp. I am running Mullard re-issue 12ax7's and a NOS RCA 6V6GT. With that set up this pedal does a pretty good Marshall tone. Gets even closer if I swap the 6v6 for a EL84. In fact, it does the best $35 worth of Marshall tone I have ever bought for $35. The settings are very close to the Tech 21 setting guide, at least to my ear. I can get a fairly decent vintage Plexi out of it. The true bypass is also clean, unlike other clone "true bypass" pedals I have tried that were not actually true bypass and sucked the tube tone right out of my amp. It's not a high gain pedal, more of a boost and voicing/foundation pedal. I liked it better than my tube screamer clone as a boost so I don't even use that pedal now. It works good in my effects loop too which is actually touchy on that amp. The EQ is nice if you have a small tube amp that has a fixed tone stack like mine. This pedal also does not take away from tube amp responsiveness to touch and attack like my tube screamer clone does. It does get noisy like other reviewers have stated, especially when you start to crank the voice knob past 12:00 or dime the drive.That's why I only gave this pedal 4 stars. Otherwise, for value for the money I would have gave it a five. I'm impressed at what Joyo put into this for the price, and I will try their other pedals in the future now.

As far as sound quality and delay capability, the D-Seed is very good: quiet, clean, and the feedback options make it very flexible. The negative I have is fairly universal to most digital products: operation can be confusing due to too few buttons and/or LEDs. I had to dive into the owner's manual to interpret the program options as indicated by the single LED. Having one LED try to convey different modes is just plain confusing and unnecessary since another LED or two would add literally pennies to the manufacturing cost. And I would know, as a co-founder of an audio electronics manufacturing corporation. Give us an extra pushbutton and/or LED to take the frustrating ambiguity out of operating a product!! I'd pay many dollars extra to have a digital product easier to use and obvious in its mode status.

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

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.

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 wanted a basic, cheap compressor to provide some sustain and to even out rhythmic playing. I've seen a review where someone said the compression was too subtle, but that's exactly what I wanted! I set it up with a fast attack and mid sustain (about 12 o clock) and set the level so it was the same volume on or off. You can crank it up to saturate the sound too. I found I basically left it on for most of the songs in our covers set. For some songs, like U2 or Police I whop up the sustain and the compression is more evident. I have a Line 6 M9 modeller with compressors based on the Boss compressors and I find it sucks the tone and level such that I don't use them. I'm thinking about putting this compressor in front of the M9, but I might check out the Xotic compressor as well for something more high end.

If you want a decent tremolo, I can't think of any real reason not to buy this one. The price is good, it nails the "Gimme Shelter" type quaver, and can be applied to either subtly changes your guitar sound or that makes it sound like your are under water. Because tremolo pedals tend to be one-trick ponies as far as pedals go, I can't really see how spending 100 dollars or more can make a huge difference. I put this pedal in the effects loop of my Egnater Rebel 20, behind a TC Hall of Fame Reverb. I haven't noticed any significant signal boost there (as mentioned in some reviews). I run a simple pedal line up: Vox 845 Wah into a Joyo Vintage Overdrive (a really good Tube Screamer clone) into the amp with this Tremolo and the Reverb in the loop. I play mainly blues based rock/classic rock/blues/and the like. This pedal fit my needs perfectly, from "Gimme Shelter" to "Howlin' For You" I get the tremolo I need. This is a more attractive pedal than some of the other Joyos. It looks better than my Vintage Overdrive (again, great pedal). Only the real tone snobs would point to how cheap these are in a negative way. They definitely don't sound cheap, and I've had no issues with Joyo pedals in the past. They seem both sturdy and reliable. I do recommend that anybody who depends on pedals get a one-spot or similar power supply to solve the battery issue.

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. ***Remember- 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 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've been playing around with different effects setups and came across these cheap pedals by Joyo. This one is my first purchases from them and I have very satisfied with this choice. Of course it's not built with the high-end components and a brand-name boutique style, but it sounds very comparable to other tone/od style pedals. The price might be cheap, but the sound is certainly not cheap. At the end of the day, if you don't care what people think of your "non-boutique" pedal, no one else really cares either. No one else will know the difference. Save your self a few hundred dollars and grab one of these guys.

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.

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.

This pedal can be useful, especially if you want a really old school early 80s crunch and have an amp that is lightly distorted. If you want a more modern or thrashy sound, I think the Digitech Bad monkey does that better. I think the Bad monkey is better at tightening up high gain amps and playing mid scooped old school metal. If you just want to boost a JCM800 or something, then the Joyo might work better because its more transparent with better gain. If your amp is not tight at all, very flabby, terrible sound on the low E, get the joyo Ultimate Drive instead. It has a lot more high end available and can turn the muddiest amp into a tight mid-range heavy metal monster. The distortion on its own is decent, possibly better than the Digitech. I tend to run these pedals at gain 0, volume unity, tone as close to transparent as possible. The reality is these pedals fatten up the mids. Echoing what someone else said, Joyo sounds better recorded than the Digitech. Get the joyo if you're thinking Iron Maiden, Saxon, Scorpions, etc Get the bad monkey if you want to do modern metal or get the Ride the Lightening tone.

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.
