I have the vintage OD and absolutely love it to death. I'm already thinking about getting more joyo pedals. Have hardly heard a bad word about them, I was told by a salesman at a music store in Melbourne that the crunch distortion was so similar to the pedal it's copied off there was a stop on selling them until the courts decided if it was a copyright infringement.

Some Danelectro stuff honestly isn't so bad. The FAB chorus is passable, and surprisingly the CoolCat tremolo is one of the best out there IMO.

I have the Fab Echo - apparently modding it makes it sound loads better. It's the next project I have on the go, but from videos I've seen, end result puts my $110 delay to shame for the low cost of about 30 bucks.

I've got a couple of questions I'd like answered
Does anyone have experience with the roll boost as strictly a clean boost? And what do people think about the chorus? And do they sell a vibrato pedal?

I've noticed Amazon's selling the Korg Pitchblack for 59 bucks. Do you think it's worth it to pick up the Joyo tuner for 45 dollars? I was looking at putting a Joyo tuner at the beginning of my board and one of their 6 band EQ's in the loop. Either way, the 6 band looks great!

I haven't seen much about the Joyo tuner, other than its a straight rip off of the Korg - honestly I would spend the extra $15 to get the real deal. Im all for clones when there are big savings to be had but when were talking about >$20 its wise to go for the tried and true product with a solid warranty IMO.

Really keen to hear about the 6 Band though... let us know if you get one!

Yeah those were my thoughts exactly regarding the Korg. Always wanted a pitchblack and for 60 bones, you can't go wrong! And yeah, I'll definitely be getting the EQ soon... I've been going on a spree with gear and such recently after saving some money and coming back from college (I've actually got a crunch lab and a t-rex fuel tank junior on the way to my home right now and I'm in the process of building my own pedal board from scratch ) so there will hopefully be a bunch of stuff to talk about

I was going to get one myself but ended up ordering a fuel tank junior which is on its way now. They aren't isolated output units so it's essentially a one spot in a nice little box. If that's what you're looking for, it's a cool like item (from when I was researching, I found a thread on a forum elsewhere where the poster dissected it to look at the internals and it looked fairly well constructed). As a backup supply or simply an alternative to a one spot or something of that nature, it looks promising!

The one spot is a power supply that daisy chains multiple pedals together off of one power brick. Isolated outputs are generally quieter (as each pedal has its own independent 9V power source) where as a non-isolated system relies on daisy chaining the signal from each pedal before it. It isn't as bad as people say but there is often more chance for noise with such a system although they are usually much cheaper than isolated units. For example, the Joyo will power 8 pedals (if I'm not mistaken) and is around 50 bucks. A Fuel Tank Jr will do 5 and is 100 and most of the larger supplies are upwards of 150 dollars. There isn't a huge difference but if you're going for most quiet operation, you'll be better rewarded with an isolated system. Plus, there's a limit to the amount of pedals you can daisy chain. The Joyo unit is essentially a One Spot in a box (look up the item on google, it looks like a DC wall adapter with a bunch of cables on it). They're good, don't get me wrong, but they're more prone to noise than isolated units, which is their main selling point.

I don't suppose anyone has tried their california pedal? I love the idea of having a mark and that awesome mark sound, but I hate the idea of paying mesa boogie my first born's blood for a real one. Does anyone know if it's any good? Which mark it's emulating? Or if it would even be worth it since I already have a dual rectifier?

Not tried it, but according to Davemc's link on the first page, it's meant to be a clone of the Tech21 California pedal, which according to their website is meant to sound like the Mark II.

It more than likely won't get your amp to sound exactly like a Mark II, but it might be worth a try. =)

I'd like to eventually grab this thing, but I'd probably rather work on grabbing some of their other pedals first to help improve my main sound. But thanks for the info.
