Not too sure what we are talking about? Well here is a list of commonly used phrases we use on the JOYO website that might help a little bit. If you look at Guitar Effects by type you will find lots of demos, more details, some reviews of all of our pedals and guitar amps. If you need any help, pleask ask.
Amp sims recreate the sounds of classic guitar amplifiers made, but instead of a heavy amp to lug about or take up room, the tones are recreated by a guitar effect pedal.
Its all about the bass, whilst modulation and spacial effects work very well across all types of instrument, overdrive and distortion really needs to account for those lower frequencies.
Chorus divides the original signal and adds it back into the original (lightly modified) adding richness to the sound. Its a classic and sounds as good now as it did in the 80’s.
Even out volume of notes, or add sustain, compression is the most subtle guitar effect but will become one that can improve the sound of your playing.
Delay generates an echo that returns and repeats depending on the setting. The repeated sound is a precise copy of the original that you play, and the volume of the echo weakens with each repetition. Achieve Shadows slapback styles with a short time setting, or go for pink floyd echo trippy-ness.. Distortion Distortion is even more aggressive than overdrive, has a longer reverb and can be reliably found in all metal genres.
You definitely know equalisers from HiFi players. They serve to amplify or reduce certain frequencies such as bass, midrange and treble. These effects strengthen/weaken the frequency in the given range of roughly o +- 12 to 20 decibels.
Sounds like a plane whooshing about your head.
Fuzz is a more aggressive style of compressed distortion using an excessive amount of gain to push your guitar signal beyond its limits
A head is simply the name for an amplifier without a speaker. Your friends won't have heads on top of amps, they'll have heads on top of speakers (with the head driving the speaker). The "basic guitar amp" also known as a combo tends to be an amplifier and speaker combined in one cabinet.
Record, overdub, play along with yourself, repeat.
Modulation is a category of effects that do not intend to change drive or distort but manipulate the sound in a particular way so phaser, flanger, chorus, tremolo etc would all be considered modulating effects.
A multi effect pedal will contain many guitar effects inside one unit that can be adjusted and saved.
In simple terms it is the opposite of a compressor, which squashes signals above a threshold, such as loud attacks from the start of musical notes, noise gates squash out signals that register below the threshold. So reducing noise from noisy pedals or high gain amps.
These pedals can drop your notes down or push them up higher where your fingers cannot reach. The Octave pedal mixes the input signal with a synthesised version whose musical tone is an octave lower or higher than the original. ... Hendrix used an octave-fuzz pedal
Overdrive effects simulates the ‘overdriving’ of a tube amp, with the resulting sound of the electric guitar being characteristically a bit ‘cracked’ and ‘gritty’. Overdrive took hold in music during the 1960s, it warms up your clean guitar tone without distorting it.
These are the shorter cables that join your guitar effect pedals together. They are a 6.35mm mono cable, exactly the same as a guitar lead.
A lot of pedals? Try changing 5 pedals at once without falling over. A pedal controller allows you to program all of that in.
Phaser effects change the volume in the chosen frequency band while also adding to the original signal its phase shifted copy. In practice, it seems as if the phaser is breathing.
That thing with a plug on it, you can get a single power supply, a daisy chain, a multi power supply, filtered, isolated...
Reverb is one of the most frequently used effects in music, guitars, keyboards, vocals the effect delivers a spacial sound ranging from a small room up to a large hall.
Tremolo is one of the oldest effects, and thanks to its simple technical realisation, it is often built into guitar amps. The effect regularly adjusts volume and strength of the signal, the speed of which can be adjusted. When set properly, a nice, swinging and pulsating effect is achieved without changing the resulting character or height of the sound.
Fade in, Boost it, crank it up, okay turn it down…. Fade out… in stompbox pedal format or wah pedal style..
A wah-wah pedal (or simply wah pedal) alters the tone and frequencies of the guitar signal to create a distinctive sound, mimicking the human voice saying the onomatopoeic name "wah-wah". Auto wah or manual wah wah to get your funk on.
The JOYO Vintage Overdrive pedal introduces warm overtones when used as a clean volume boost and when cranked to 11 the thing has the searing tone and warmth of a classic overdriven tube amp.
This is a great live pedal, the simple controls make it really easy to use when you're up against it at a gig and don't have the time to tweak your sound. And once again a great sound, from subtle to 'in your face', possibly the quietest overdrive/distortion pedal I've ever used.
A great pedal to use on its own or use it to stack with another overdrive pedal, or push your amp to make the sound of a screaming tube! .
The pedal features three control functions: volume (output), drive (gain) and tone (treble boost or cut, focused around the 2-5k range). The circuit features true-bypass wiring, and the world-renowned jrc4588 chip provides a full sound.
From gobs of thick midrange to a modest top-end boost, this pedal is versatile, yet consistent between guitars. The vintage overdrive pedal is one of JOYO's most popular pedals. The smooth tones and rich harmonics it creates have made it a favourite among blues, rock and fusion guitar players. Without sacrificing anything in terms of quality, this modern construction pedal accurately reproduces the original soul, bite and growl of the classic 'screamer overdrive series, but at a fraction of the price. Whether you play classic rock, modern or hard rock, country, blues or rock-a-billy then this pedal will rapidly become a must have on your board.
Here is Shane from In The Blues the Joyo Vintage Overdrive Pedal. This pedal features an amp like "natural clipping" tone when a clean channel is cranked up to the maximum. It's super smooth, sounds great and has three simple controls including a Drive, Volume, and Tone knobs.
