Ian Paul on 04/07/2019 Purchased: JOYO JP-02 Guitar Effect Pedal Multi Power Supply
Bought this as a replacement for a Harley Benton powerplant junior, basically because I needed more than five outputs. The Joyo unit is neat, compact, quiet and does what it's supposed to do. I'm powering a Boss tuner, noise suppressor, Ibanez tubescreamer, Boss chorus and TC Electronic flashback delay with no issues at all. Great value for money unit and comes supplied with all cables.

George on 30/11/-0001 Purchased: JOYO JF-01 Vintage Overdrive Guitar Effect Pedal
Absolutely fantastic value for money, this pedal. Cheap but does not lose out on quality. Perfect for a subtle, softer overdrive effect with a good tone. Can be adjusted to give a heavier crunch to your sound.

The Joyo Dynamics Compressor is a great compressor, low noise, and doesn't colour your tone, great budget compressor that works well in the studio and live

Joe Morgans on 30/11/-0001 Purchased: JOYO JF-01 Vintage Overdrive Guitar Effect Pedal
I've had one of these for a few months and I can honestly say its the most used pedal on my board.It sounds just like a tube screamer pedal but for a fraction of the price. The only down side is that the tone adjustment is a bit 2 dimensional - aka doesn't have much of an effect on the sounds (unless you wind it right around, then it sounds very harsh), but it is still a useful function and the pedal produces a really good, all round overdrive sound.Anyone who is thinking of getting it... GET IT! For the price and quality, you can't go wrong.

Very versatile pedal. Their sound is crispy and hot with a lot of profit. Their advantage is sii is played with the treble control and presence many sounds are achieved.It can also be used as overdrive. Very good

It is the best pedal I have. everything works properly and its sound quality is 100%. You can not ask for more.Pedals brands have higher quality and continuous with it, since years ago

andy butler on 30/11/-0001 Purchased: JOYO JF-16 British Sound Guitar Effect Pedal
The 'British' is an amp simulator, meant to enable you to produce the sound of a Marshall amp and speaker when DI'ing your guitar. It has buffered bypass (unlike most other Joyo pedals) which makes a lot of sense in when using as a DI, you can easily compare with the dry sound. The buffer is of good quality, I didn't get any 'tone suck'.It can of course be used in front of an amp as a distortion/boost.I wrote a long and complementary review...but the website here only accepts 100 characters max so you'll not see it.

Justin Bradford on 30/11/-0001 Purchased: JOYO JF-317 Space Verb Reverb Mini Guitar Effect Pedal
This Space Verb is a beauty!The tiny size of it leaves great for room on my board, the knob-guard is great for saving your position (not that I'd ever worry about bumping the knobs) the pedal has a nice weight to it, too!Four knobs, Decay (Room size), Mix (Blend), Tone (Frequency) four reverb settings on the last knob; Room, Hall, Plate & Church. I'm a huge fan of the Church / Hall sounds for those massive reverb sounds, I like to increase the decay and lower the mix to blend the huge sound with my original signal. Another handy feature is that when you turn it off it trails the reverb so it sounds more natural during play.I actually leave it on at all times instead of using my amp reverb as it is too subtle even at maximum volume, and I do love having the option to switch it off should I want or need to with certain sounds.I love the option of velcro/foam adhesive for the bottom. I went straight to velcro and it hasn't left my board since I got it.10/10 would recommend

Rory Haggart on 30/11/-0001 Purchased: JOYO JF-11 6-Band Equalizer Guitar Effect Pedal
What a fantastic pedal for such a great price! Very versatile and allows for such a great range of sounds from complete bass, treble and mid cuts or boosts, and anything in between. The notches in the slide scale are very handy for finding the level of no boosting or cutting. I couldn't have wished for better quality of build and versatility for such a price. The only flaw for me would be that the sliders feel a tad flimsy.

This pedal will give you all the classic fender tones from silver face thru black face and on to tweed. Just use the voice control to set it where the tone takes your fancy. All the way to the left and you are in silver face territory, all the way to the right and it gets lovely and tweedy. the 12 'o' clock position gets you blackface.Once you have your tone flip the lid over and you are good to go every time. I have two of these, one clean and one crunchy. I have a wah and overdrive feeding into the clean which then cascades into the crunch. Fantastic tone which is then fed into a series of stereo pedals (sadly not JOYO) which then give me a left and right directly into the PA.Great tone and I don't have to lug my amp around any more, I have gigged with this set up many times and I always get complimented on my tone....

I've had a PXL Live for some time now and I've nothing but good things to say about it. It made my effect switching sooooo much simpler, I dont know how I got by without it. Super-simple to set up and program and no noise or discernable lag when switching. There are more fully-featured switchers out there but at twice the price. This switcher be can't be beaten for VFM. Highly recommended. If it got nicked, I'd buy another without hesitation.

Glenn Mayo on 30/11/-0001 Purchased: JOYO JF-02 Ultimate Overdrive Guitar Effect Pedal
Buy this instead. It has more gain than the OCD and it completely rocks. Brilliantly aggressive little overdrive pedal and it more than hangs with other much ore expensive pedals on my board. Remember, just because it's cheap, doesn't mean to say that it's bad. And this one definitely isn't. I acutally recommened the UD to a lot of my friends. Some of them bought one and they feel like I do about it. Awesome value for money.

I bought D-SEED 2 years ago because I wanted delay, and as this delay is offering 2 channels and 4 mods, it was must have.I'm using it every since and I'm happy with it.I've modified my footswitch 2 buttons, one for changing channels on my amp, other one I've connected to D-SEED, so it's easier to change channels.Only thing I don't like is when it's in bypass, you can't switch channels.

I bought this pedal for my father.

We both love the sound!It's little warmer and there is less drive then AC tone, but still pretty good pedal!Recommended!

Logan M on 30/11/-0001 Purchased: Dr.J D-52 Soloman Bass Overdrive Effect Pedal
Great little overdrive for pushing my 'hot' bass solos (not my words, honest). The knobs are big enough to see under romantic lighting (or stage lighting) and can be adjusted using your foot when you realise you forgot to set the levels before you started the song.Only two knobs for those of us that desire something simple and true bypass so you don't lose any sick bass tone.Not standard shape, but if you place it in "portrait mode" then it fits a standard sized pedal spot and your foot is less likely to hit knobs when switching. Cabling is then just in the top and out the bottom.
ProsPros
  • Big knobs
  • "Simpel"

Johnny Green on 30/11/-0001 Purchased: JOYO JF-10 Dynamic Compressor Guitar Effect Pedal
I have the 'green' compressor pedal that has been on the market for quite a while now. I use it with my Vintage Bass guitar when I play with my band 'Tunky Pig'. What can I say, it does exactly what a compressor should and more. The 'dynamic' boost is instantly noticable, because we play classic rock, (Surprise, surprise...lol.) Zepplin, AC/DC, and Hawkwind amongst them, I need a variety of 'sounds and tones' from clean/smooth right through to gritty/dirt. I like a quite 'steep' attack and this pedal does it better than any other pedal I have ever used, including my old Ashdown Dual, and a Keeley, (That I borrowed of a friend) When pushing the 'sustain' up, I can sometimes make my notes ring for longer than our lead guitarist on his Gibson going through his Marshall and a Vox valve amplifier, and his pedal board which is just a little smaller than a battleship...lol. I wouldn't swap it for any other compressor out there on the market regardles of cost and plan to add some more JOYO pedals to add to the versatility of my sound...(Not too many, no-one likes to see a bass player with a pedal board...lol... I will be looking at a flanger and an envelope filter) I couldn't recommend this pedal enough, I get complimented on the tone all the time, had it for over 3 years and never had the slightest bit of trouble with it, and, to be honest, I don't expect to. Great job JOYO, looking forward to owning more. As for a star rating, you don't say how many stars it is out of. If it was out of five stars, I would be giving it a five without doubt.

David Hunter on 30/11/-0001 Purchased: JOYO JF-02 Ultimate Overdrive Guitar Effect Pedal
Bought one of these at the same time as the Vintage Overdrive. Ended up using that as a cleanish boost since the Ultimate Overdrive is just that. Massive range of available sounds, tones and drive levels. Work very well with the volume pot on your guitar, will clean up nicely when you drop the volume and then go to scream with the guitar flat out.Only downside is the graphic, which pushes it into metal territory, and this pedal is so much more. Buy with you ears, not with your eyes

Had a JF-10 Dyna Compressor first, not bad but when I read about this pedal and the fact that it is a parallel compressor, allowing you to mix more of less of the original signal in, I was sold. Pretty much a leave on pedal, works really well with my single coil equipped guitars, but can still tighten up the sound of my Ibanez, especially cleanCombined with my JF-10 it gives a great clean slide sound, a la Lowell George

Eoin Jennings on 30/11/-0001 Purchased: JOYO JF-02 Ultimate Overdrive Guitar Effect Pedal
LIke most home users I sometimes struggle to get the tone I am looking for when playing on small practice amps at home. I bought this having read some positive reviews as a secondary OD pedal. I have been blown away. It is more than a match for my considerably more expensive waza Boss super drive giving me a more hi-fi thicker tone. Very impressive at the low volumes I play at. Highly recommended.

Eoin Jennings on 30/11/-0001 Purchased: JOYO JF-01 Vintage Overdrive Guitar Effect Pedal
I was looking to try a tubescreamer but wasn't sure about shelling out for the Ibanez TS as I'm mainly a Gibson player and with a number of overdrives including the BD I wasn't sure about how much use it would get. Then I came across this and thought I would give it a try. It has more than exceeded my expectations usually working it through a clean channel on my amp when using modest distortion playing blues with my strat. Ideal for this use. Recommended.

Eoin Jennings on 30/11/-0001 Purchased: JOYO JF-09 Tremolo Guitar Effect Pedal
I had space on my board for one more pedal and though I have a tremolo effect on one of my amps was never happy with it. Felt it could add something as an effect on some Dire Straits and Blues I have been working on. I have been very satisfied with this. Have been able to dial in a subtle level of tremolo which adds a shimmer to those more laid back songs. Maybe could have done with an on pedal volume control but being picky. When I'm looking for a new effect or pedal Joyo is now my first port of call. I have been using a lot of Boss and had tried Behringer as lower cost options for some effects with mixed results (hissy and dulling of tone). Joyo gives much better quality at a great price. Have a couple more on my wish list!

Excellent pedal, built like a tank. Nice smooth sweep on the pots with a very useable range of tone. I use mine as a bass overdrive with a Boss LS2 to blend in the clean - if Joyo included a clean blend on this then it might be the best bass overdrive out there. Bravo Joyo.

I wasn't sure whether to buy a "big name" reverb pedal or a more budget friendly one so I bought both. In my honest opinion your stock room, hall etc settings are as good on this pedal as the one that cost almost 4 times as much. True, the expensive pedal has more settings and its stereo but I hardly ever used these features so I sent it back and kept the Joyo! If you want the fancy modulated stuff look elsewhere, but if all you want is a good sounding standard reverb you won't go wrong. Its not just good for the money its good full stop. The knobs can be a bit fiddly but its an affordable micro pedal with 4 different reverbs on it so there has to be a downside somewhere, but once you've found your sound just flip the guard down and your sorted.

Great! Thanks

This is the first looper pedal I have owned so I'm still getting to know how to use it, but so far, I love it! I'm also new to joyo and again I'll say I'm impressed with the value for money they offer. For such a tiny little thing it can make a big sound and with the drum machine you really can be a one man band. It's simple to use and the instructions are concise. I like the metal body and it feels quite solid. The flashing lights I can take or leave but at least you can turn that off. I'm realising that unlimited overdubs sounds like a good idea but in practice after about 3 or 4 tracks things can start to sound a little crowded, the drum machine is a great feature but for me I'd have liked a few less options but maybe make them sound a bit more authentic or "useable". The biggest flaw in the pedal is only being able to remove/replay your most recent track. So if you record track 1 then 2 then 3, you can only remove or reinstate track 3, what would have made this perfect for me is to be able to remove each track one after the other because what I am finding is I record my tracks and then am unable to really end the song. But I guess that's a feature in much more expensive units and for less than £85 I really can't complain. This thing is great and for lonely guitar players like me it's transformed my jamming and practice sessions. If you're thinking about it, I'd get it.

Clean glass.I bought this as i put my guitar through a boss bcb60 loaded with various Boss pedals through my Bose L1 PA.These joyo pedals are incredibly robust for their size and great if you are short on board space. Note they require a power supply. They dont take batteries. I only have two concerns really. It is not the quietest pedal in the world even at the end of the chain. Indeed i now have to engage a noise gate. Second to get sufficient clean volume is difficult. You have to engage some drive and voice to get sufficient volume which may compromise the tone you want if your looking for ultra clean scooped tones. Almost perfect. Almost.
