JOYO Overdrive guitar effects are the mildest of the three distortion guitar effect types, producing warmer overtones at quieter volumes and can achieve a harsher distortion as gain is increased.
JOYO guitar effects "Distortion", "Overdrive" and "Fuzz" are similar in effect, but they each have subtle differences in tone, ranging from warm mild overtones to an extreme manipulation of the guitar signal.
Distortion effects produce approximately the same amount of distortion at any volume, and its sound alterations are much more pronounced and intense.Fuzz effects alter the audio signal until it is nearly a square wave and will open up a whole new experience when playing the electric guitar.

One way to power up more than one guitar pedal is to use a daisy chain power supply.

No, but you must add up the total mA of your pedals to use a daisy chain and have a suitable mains power supply that exceeds that total.
