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 this pedal for fourteen smackers and that included prime two day shipping on a special that tomtop had. I sanded it and took off the demon picture and repainted it. I still don't understand the devil thing and hard rock music. What makes people want things that represent evil? Anyway, it is a decent pedal. It is very much a distortion pedal not an overdrive. Even at the lowest setting it is mildly distorted. There is NO clean sound from this pedal. It can't be used as a clean boost. At about 8 o'clock on the gain knob you will notice a fairly quick jump from "not much" to "noticeable" distortion. It is not real gradual as you might think. The tone knob can give you shrill treble when dimed out and at about 12 oclock it becomes very muddy. It can cause some serious feedback when turned up, and that can be fun.....or not. Next to my Klon it sounds very compressed and therefore can get lost in the mix. Having said all that, it's not bad for the money. I would not have it on my board as a standard, but for the occasional Hendrix song it can scream.

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? 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!

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,

Tested this pedal with a 58 Gibson Les Paul Jr and a Fender 212R amp. The chorus effects from this pedal were good. They would have been good on an acoustic guitar too. This pedal gives good quality ranges on both rate and depth. My only complaint is that there's no compartment door for the 9v battery. You need to use a small Phillips screwdriver to take the back plate off the pedal. Make sure you check your battery during practice and change it then when there's no pressure. I was provided this item for review.

I bought this to replace the Boss compression pedal I had. I don't do a lot of metal and wanted a pedal that would tighten the sound weather I was using my electric or acoustic and the Boss just made too much noise. I really like this pedal and run my acoustic through it pretty often. It helps to bring a little more sustain through even when using my feedback buster and if I really get at it while I'm playing it adds a little crunch and sharpens the acoustic sound. It also works great with when I'm playing electric and evens the sound across my other effects combinations. Best of all, there's no extra noise when it's sustaining or when I'm playing lightly. It's a great pedal and I'm very happy with it!

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

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.

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'm a bassist... I can play guitar, keyboards, a handful of other instruments too, but I'm mostly a bassist. Low notes tend to sound kinda questionable bumping into each other, so I'm not going to use this often-- especially live. That being said, I like chords ringing out a little longer during chord melody pieces on my 7 string. How often am I asked to do that instead of hitting eighth notes? Not often. So... I didn't want to spend much on a very simple pedal. 30 bucks was great... so I went for it. There's three knobs here. Do you need more? I didn't. The level worked smoothly, the time is a bit inexact (click against muted strings for a quick glimpse of your effect tempo when you have to), and the repeat can give you a wave of static feedback at faster delay times if you need or want it. I needed dotted quarter notes, mostly, with the level about three-quarters up, repeat count low... works like a charm. Two complaints. The 9V battery that came with the pedal died within twenty minutes of putting it in. I figured this would happen, though. I could disregard that and only complain once here, sure... except that: The battery compartment is quite tight. So tight in fact that I have a little bite taken out of my right hand's middle knuckle from wiggling the battery out. I might be bitter about the personal injury, but I'm deducting a star for that-- and warning the next potential buyer. If all of Joyo's pedals have this cramped a battery space, I would be aware but not really wary of it. Just something to consider... or get a power supply. I won't be using the pedal that often, but it is superb at the simple task it does.

This was my first guitar pedal ever. I was not able to afford an Ibanez at that time, and since people had a lot of good things to say about this pedal, I decided to give it a try. I was quite satisfied with the tone and did not care to get an ibanez. This is the pedal, that I spent countless hours practicing with my stratocaster for about a year. But then I got the $$ to spend on an Ibanez Ts808 and its an improvement over the joyo, but also costs 6 times more. The ts808 is smoother and less muddier. Apparently, the joyo is a ts808 clone but I think it sounds more like a ts9, with a little more gain and mids. If Ur on a budget, don't hesitate to get this one. You can't get a better bang for ur buck.

When opening the box I pulled the pedal out it well exceeded the quality I expected from a 35 dollar pedal. The knobs turn well, the casing is heavy, It just felt good. The switch is definitely cheap. you can hear an audible click when it turns on but replacing the switch isn't a huge deal and since it's just a lighter overdrive, you likely aren't going to be turning it on and off. Now, The plugged in details... The Overdrive is very expressive. as you turn the volume up, it gets louder but doesn't really change the sound. The drive knob has plenty of functionality. It sort of caps out the grit around 12 o'clock but the rest of the pot really shapes the tone. I kept mine pretty low and really dug the tones. The tone Knob has a wide spectrum but the treble end of it is pretty unusable and the bass and is not very bassy. I set it pretty low and it was a very clear and defined tone. You're not going to get any bass-ey tones out of it but it definitely thickens up your sound... As for the treble, you can crank it all the way over and it's going to sound like a chicken' picken' players dream, but to the rest of us it's going to sound very harsh. I run a Walrus audio mayflower on my main board and I AB'd them together. You're obviously going to see a noticeable difference in quality between the two in an isolated environment but I think most of the differences would be lost when you got it up to gig volumes. Overall, Great pedal, Can't believe how much value you get for the price.

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 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.

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.

This is an edit of an earlier more negative review where, it seems, my third-party power supply introduced considerable unwanted noise into the overall effect. That problem's now been remedied with a new pedal power adapter, and the Joyo chorus effect is indeed a joy. This pedal performs best as a mid-depth chorus effect and not for the deeper underwater effect of other big-name pedals. The Joyo seems well suited to this more moderate purpose and does not add excessive treble to the signal, either. I still hold that there's no easy way to access the battery compartment and, I swear, the back screws were tightened to the point I was unable to remove them. Maybe some units ship with an easily removable back panel, but certainly not mine. Recently I purchased the Joyo American Sound amp emulating box and the Joyo Tremolo pedal, both of which have an easy opening rear plastic hatch. Why not the Analog Chorus? Anyway, I'm now enjoying this pedal and appreciate the hole it fills in between the high-depth and low-depth positions of the name-brand small clone chorus. Thanks, Joyo.

I really like this little pedal. I tried it at my band's rehearsal and it sounded great. I've been playing guitar for 50 years and very familiar with all sorts of equipment. I was concerned about the toughness of the pedal and if it added any line noise when it was in bypass mode. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the pedal at the price point. It will have to be seen if it holds up to the rigors of regular gigs. I couldn't detect any substantial change to line noise after I added the pedal. If you're looking for a quality pedal at a low price and want the old style tremolo sound I would recommend this product.
