The number of music shops who stock JOYO guitar effect pedals in the UK has increased, now with over 60 music retailers in England, Ireland, Scotland & Wales. JOYO products can be located at UK music shops found on the JOYO retailer map
Find your local music shop & try the JOYO guitar effects. Try the pedals out in person & in confidence from JOYO dealers.
If your local store is not on here... Ask them to get in touch and register as a JOYO retailer, it would be great to hear from them.
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 Vocal Lab is JOYOs first vocal processor and has many features that will appeal to live performers and to all in the home studio. Whether you want to apply subtle harmonies to keep your singing in key and add a little reverb, or maybe you are seeking to apply some live harmonised pitch shifting effects to create something very unique.
9 position vocal harmony selection
3 position vocal reverb - small, medium and large
12 Keys are available with Major/Minor toggle switch
Selectable 48V phantom power supply On/Off for microphones
Harmony and Reverb Footswitches.
Harmony Mix control
Microphone Gain control with response indicator
The Vocal lab has a Microphone Balanced XLR in and out perfect for connecting up to a mixer, a direct recording interface or a live PA system.
There are 9 options of harmony vocal processing effects available:
1 Unison - Vocals are processed in unison, the pitch remains the same but is delayed slightly, in effect it creates a chorus effect.
2 Low - Vocal Pitch is processed to a 4th below
3 High - Pitch is processed to a 3rd below
4 Low & High - A 3rd above and a 4th below
5 Lower - Pitch is processed to a 6th below
6 Higher - Pitch is processed to a perfect 5th above
7 Lower & Higher - a 6th below & a 5th above
8 Low & Lower - a 4th below & a 6th below
9 High & Higher - 3rd above and a 5th above
All of the Harmonising effects on the JOYO Vocal Lab can be mixed, adjusting the ratio of dry sound (natural) and applying the wet signal of the selected harmony. The more you turn the mix to the right the dry fades away and more harmonics are applied, mixed together or removed away this is where the harmonising fun begins!
With a rotary encoder the vocal lab can process your vocals to 12 different keys, select C,D,E,F,G,A & B and by pressing the dial you get the # (not for E or B though!) A Major / Minor toggle switch to adjust your scale. The LED Display indicates the selected key.
The controls to adjust the microphone gain has a useful LED overload indicator built in enabling you to adjust the input. When the microphone is active and this dial lights green the signal is clean and there will be no overdrive, yellow is a warning and red will be overdriven and potentially distorting the vocal input..
A 3 mode Reverb control can be adjusted and turned on or off with the footswitch on the right. The footswitch on the left activates the Harmonic selection, both can be used independently of each other and each will light when active.
On the side there is a switch to turn off/on 48v phantom power for using condenser microphones
On the rear of the pedal there is a 1/4” mono instrument input, perfect for connecting your guitar or keyboard. This also has the feature of using the reverb effect, but will not process the harmonic of the instrument.
The Aux in 3.5mm stereo input will allow you to connect up your phone/tablet or mp3 player to sing & play along to. What is special about this is the centre silencer button that will strip out vocals (from the centre) from the music, giving you a vocal free music experience. Whilst this is not suitable for all tracks, the principle is that when the centre silence is activated the right input of the stereo aux in is sent out of phase, its put back together and is removed from playback.
The 3.5mm stereo headphone is a great feature, allowing you to monitor and fine tune your vocal processing.
Let's not forget the LED ambient lighting that you find on all JOYO R series pedals, this is one pedal that looks great and makes you sound greater!.
