I know a rush job when I see it. We're talking about my trade here.


Only if you would have opened it up when you first got it and noticed the rush job, and sent it back to get one that wasn't rushed would have been ideal. I really don't mind doing it for the price, it takes 5 mins.

I'm giving you advice about something I am qualified to comment on. Take it or leave it as you will. I did say right at the start that if you are willing or capable of rebuilding it they are ok based on the cost of components. If you think of them as an incomplete kit then power on with that.

I've worked on electronics a long time ago for a few things and also automotive parts. Building pedals is quite easy. I see your advice and thanks for the concern but we are getting passed the point of advice if I already have 2 pedals that work and are built correctly.

You made a choice to hate that company which is fine everyone can make up their own mind. My advice would be to open it up right away when you get it to make sure it's made correctly and plays correctly, so you have a chance to send it back in case it isn't up to par.

It sucks that you happened to have experience with some bad apples but I've seen more people happy with theirs than not.

There is no cost of components if you do what I suggest because you would get a new one in the mail.

I meant that to build it from scratch would cost more in parts. So if you are prepared to rebuild it as if it was a partially assembled kit then they are ok. As a finished product it's a pig in a poke.

I might aswell as bump this thread up for us Joyo collectors. I finally got the cables so I could really put the Joyo Noise Gate through its paces in FX Loop where it belongs.

It works but there is unfortunately a tone loss. I only noticed when I used a lot of gain through my Valveking but it is there. If I would have to describe it there is a slight loss of crunch with it on, sound gets slightly duller. Its very subtle but noticeable when you concentrate on it. When just playing around you will propably forget about it fast but when you turn it off you will notice that the sound bites more again.

So my verdict unfortunately is, I do not recommend it unless you are on a budget and you really need to pacify that noisy amp/pedal.

Sorry to hear that. That's one of the pedals by them that got terrible reviews.

Yeah. Unfortunately the reviews surfaced after I had ordered the pedal several months ago. Before that there was nothing but assumptions that this may be Decimator clone. I guess it can be safely confirmed that it is not. Its something else or maybe even Joyos own design but its not particularly good pedal. Noise gate should not cause any tone loss when the gate is wide open.

I can notice slight tone loss even with my decimator. It's very subtle, though.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

I think arby has the fuzz? If he doesn't see in here you could ask in the WTLT thread.

You need a Super Fuzz clone for Black Keys tone. Black Cat will get you there.

That and a deluxe reverb would be good for that kinda sound? I just like that old dirty blues tone of theirs.

Looks like my Classic Flanger has finally kicked the bucket

I used it for the first time in a month yesterday. When I switched it on there was no flanging, it just distorted the signal. It turned into a cheap distortion pedal! I thought the battery might be flat and changed it. There was some modulation and a little but of distortion like before, but still no flanging. Instead of flanging the pitch just went up and down like an out of tune slow chorus or something alone the lines of that. The battery I placed in was an old battery that I didn't use much, bit it could have been flat anyway (due to being in the sunlight or something), so I decided to replace it with a brand new battery. Just as I took the old battery out one of the wires connecting the 9V battery terminals snapped off!

I don't know if the previous problem was due to a weak connection to the terminal or it was just coincidental Hopefully it was just a loose connection. It's still under warranty but I don't think it's worth sending back a £30 pedal to the seller.

^ that sucks

it's up to you, really. if things are pretty new the seller should really pay return postage, but if it's a bit older it's maybe a bit of a grey area. i suppose it depends on how much you like it (and how long you trust the replacement to keep working for).

Apparently the Classic Flanger is an MXR M117 (the EVH flanger) - unconfirmed



From my personal experience having owned all the recent MXR Flangers, the Grey one, the White EVH and now I am using the Micro Flanger which I've had on the board for about a year or two. Today I got a Joyo Flanger with the Jet on the front. With the knobs all at 12 o'clock it totally nails the sound of the MXR Micro Flanger. I would say it is indeed like the Micro Flanger but with the extra delay time and width knobs. They both run on 9V. In any event it may well just be the 117 but at 9V or either way it doesn't really matter, I'd have to say it's an MXR type flanger.

Any of you guys tried the Joyo D-Seed Delay? I'm pretty happy with my Vintage Overdrive and have been looking for a delay to play around with. I like the tap tempo feature. Thoughts?

I have the Fuzz. I think it is so versatile it would get you really close to practically anything that uses a fuzz tone on it. The Black Keys aren't really massive Fuzz users. Which song did you mean specifically?

From the most recent album at least, the lead lick of Gold on the ceiling uses fuzz (or so I think?)

I think the classic flanger does a nice watery chorus when regen is set to zero

Impulse bought the analog chorus yesterday (damn you Amazon and your free prime trials!).

Immediately after opening it up I knew my classic flanger was from a bad batch. The build quality here was top notch for a dirt cheap pedal. My classic flanger had blobs of glue smeared everywhere, whereas this chorus was all nice and clean I'll try and post pics to show what I mean.

When I first tried it, my heart sank. It wouldn't work! I thought to myself "oh god, not again, not another faulty Joyo pedal". Turns out the old unused battery I had on my shelf was a bad one . After replacing the battery I tried it again and it sounds great

I was a little worried about the lack of level control (unlike the Boss CE) because I wanted something more subtle rather than 'in your face', but it's not too 'wet' and sounds great both with clean and high gain

So um, that's all there is to it I guess! If this fails on me like the classic flanger then I'll probably end up getting a Boss CE, but for the time being it does the job very well.

(I'm itching for a compressor, but I don't want to get carried away and get the Joyo Comp )
