Some guitars have lots of it, some have less. It is perceived that a guitar will sound better if it has lots of sustain compared to one that doesn’t. When you hear about Sustain it simply means the length of the string's vibration, how long the note lasts, so a long sustain means the string or note can vibrate or ring out for a longer time, then a short sustain means the string can't vibrate for a long time.
There are a number of things that will traditionally change sustain on a guitar, the wood, strings, the material of the nut & saddle and pickups. A combination of changing these things will change the way your guitar sustain behaves. But ! What if you do not have lots of different guitars, what can you do to adjust your guitar sustain?
A classic way to adjust the sustain of your guitar tone is to manipulate the tone by adding a compressor pedal or an overdrive set on low gain with compression built in. The compressor takes all the highs and lows of the signal and squishes it together, so all the highs and lows of its output are the same, this results in a longer note.
Some pedals do this better than others, so here are the top JOYO pedals & devices that will give you the best sustain guitar effect to dial in on your existing gear and make you sound infinitely better.

Preamp tubes do not need to work as hard as a power amp tube, but they can fail at any time.
So how do you know if you need to change your preamp tube your JOYO Bantamp ?
Some of the most common signs that tubes need replacement are a c..
It’s been 2 years since JOYO launched the BanTamP series of guitar amplifiers and we always knew that these amps would be popular at home, in practice and even in performance. They might be small but they are extra mighty in sound.
Many of our users have taken them along for performance, connected them up with 2 x 12 & 4 x 12 cabinets and have been praising them ever since. The demand for the little tube guitar head amplifiers from JOYO has often exceeded supply!.
We listened to our users playing on the amps and also their feedback (no pun intended) and we are now..
Whilst in isolation Dave is having a conversation with himself about the use of XLR outputs on the newer JOYO Revolution series and for recording guitar in the home studio.
Hey Dave, I noticed on some of the latest JOYO gear like the Cab box, the DRj Sparrow bass DI and the new JOYO Preamp House that they all have XLR outputs, why is that? Its not a cable you usually see on a pedal board or associated with guitars is it?.
no not historically, but JOYO are catering more and more for guitarists in the studio and for those who are recording at home, If you look at the succ..
