In the UK JOYO has a growing number of UK music shops & retailers who can hook you up with a little JOYO in store.
The number of music shops who stock the JOYO products in the UK is increasing, we now have over 60 music retailers in England, Ireland, Scotland & Wales. Please take a look on our JOYO retailer map and support your local music retailer. Try the pedals out in person & in confidence from our authorised dealers.
If your local store is not on here, ask them to get in touch and register as an authorised 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 JP 05 Power Supply features, 8 DC outputs, 4 x 100ma 9v, 3 x 500ma 9v and 1 switchable to 9v, 12v or 18v at 100ma. The power supply also features a 5v USB, perfect for power USB devices & charging your phone.
To top off the feature list, the power supply has a built in 7.4v/4400 mAh rechargeable lithium battery pack which charges fully in 2.5 hours making sure that you are never without power.
Each output of the power supply features independent filters, output overload & short-circuit protection protecting your pedals and filtering out any unwanted noises.
Battery Level indicator - The Power supply has a 4 stage battery indicator, you can use the supply when it is in charging mode powered by the supplied JOYO 9v 2000ma adaptor.
The level of battery power will be indicated by the LED display on the top of the pedal.
0% - Red flashing (charge it up!)
0-30% - Red
30-60% - Yellow
60-100% - Green
Charging - Flashing above colour to show status
Who doesn’t love a LED to show off your gear, the JP-05 will shine brightly, 8 LEDS can light up your board in a bright cool blue glow. A word of warning, don’t press the on/off button to toggle these lights on and off whilst looking at them like I just did. They are very bright, much brighter than the LEDS on the JP02, the option to turn them off or on are a nice touch. If you are using the supply as a portable unit, it would make sense to turn them off.
- DC Outputs 1-3 are 9v centre negative with 500ma each, suitable for many high end digital pedals requiring more oomph and suitable for many standard pedals too requiring less. In theory you could even run a daisy for 5 100ma pedals of each output, that's 15 pedals! If you are thinking of doing that, read our guide on power supplies for best practices.
- DC Outputs 4-7 are also 9v centre negative with 100ma, suitable for the most guitar pedals at 100ma or less.
- DC Output 8 can be switched from 9v,12v or 18v at 100ma.
So that makes a pretty versatile power supply, useful for guitar effects and other electronic instruments. The JOYO JP-05 is even supplied with a polarity converter for instruments/effects that require a centre positive supply.
