We are starting a list of Joyo pedals. Please give some information about the pedal, the price, sound, what it is a possible clone of, etc. Any other pertinent information is welcome. Let this be a list to help others making decisions buying these pedals.
I will start, others feel free to chime in and add as needed. Thanks in advance and Cheers!

Vintage Overdrive-$39.99 USD, appears to be cloned after the Ibanez TS9. Great overdrive pedal, can be used as a boost. Works like any tubescreamer or overdrive pedal. When put after distortion can tighten up the sound, when added to clean can give a nice added blues-y punch to the mix.

Ultimate Overdrive-$39.99 USD, appears to be cloned after the OCD. Many people have said that they are just straight replicas of the OCD. Great pedal!

Digital Delay-$39.99 USD, has adjustable delay sounds and has the ability to change the level at which the delay is prominent in the overall sound. Very rich sound, some think it sound very analog rather than digital. Can be blended very well with other sounds to create unique sounds, at a lower tempo it can even sound like a reverb.

Thanks Dave, also for pictures and other pertinent information here is the link directly to Joyo's website, http://www.joyoaudio.com/en/product/fl_26.html . I am not trying to sell these pedals at all, just trying to inform and to cut down on all the countless Joyo threads.

Thanks for that link, Dave! I've been wondering about what some of the pedals are cloning! =)

Might give a couple a try...real tempted by their ultimate drive.

It would be great if we could get audio samples of the real thing vs. the clone, to make accurate comparisons. Granted this would take some work, but it would be informative. Just a dream. I know a lot of people are interested.

China is all sorts of ****ed up. Or badass depending on how you look at it.
Joyo lists job requirements depending on the gender of the employee. Do that state-side and you will be out of business faster than Gloria Alrad can call a press conference.

I'm using a Cornford Roadhouse 30, not exactly a Fendery sounding amp!

I don't really need them, but I think I'll order the Vintage Overdrive and the Ultimate Drive in the next month or so. €60 won't ruin me if I don't like them. It's barely more than the price of a DS-1.

It sounds nothing like an Ibanez Flanger. I had an FL9 for many years, it was my only mod pedal for a long time. I could do anything with that thing. The Joyo aint an FL9, that I can be certain of.

I'm not certain it's an MXR but that is the chatter around the water cooler. It's believable. I've never owned one though so I can't be sure. That's just the chat. I probably should pull mine apart and compare it to a schematic of an M117. I hate tracing pcb's though. Maybe one day when I've got nothing better to do.

if you're ordering a couple you might as well get them on thomann, as you get the 3 year warranty (and if anything goes wrong with them they probably won't even ask you to return them).

Fish, get a delay and a flanger, spice the ambient sounds up a little more. If i had money right now I would go for the flanger and possibly the ultimate drive, I am a sucker for some overdrive.

Seems like a relevant place to post this (because I assume it's better than starting ANOTHER Joyo thread).

I need to power some pedals (currently 2, a decimator and a TS9, with room to expand in the future) and I noticed the Joyo JP-01 power supply. I assume it's better than running batteries and/or running multiple separate DC power supply/bricks and it's also quite a bit cheaper than some of the bigger supplies I've seen which are bigger in comparison. Is it worth the buy? I assume it's fine for ~$50 but does anyone know of any glaring issues with it?

EDIT: This is the item in question just to clarify. I assume it should work fine with the TS9 and Decimator since they're both 9V DC correct?

It might be worth a shot. If it's no good you can return it, if you can't return it you aren't exactly broke from a Joyo product! =P

But personally I wouldn't want to cheap out on a power supply, unless of course I'd heard it has no problems/noise and works well.

If I were to look at a cheap power supply, I'd personally probably go with a OneSpot. But who knows? Maybe Joyo copy real good power supplies as well as pedals?

If you do go for it, be sure to let us know how good it is! =)

EDIT: Taking a quick look at some opinions on that power supply, people say it's pretty good, so I guess it might be worth a purchase! =)

it's cheaper because it doesn't have isolated outputs. it's basically a one spot in a more convenient form.

i recommend a t-rex fuel tank junior. best value power supply ever. solid and quiet.

Isn't it like £10 shipping from Thomann though? =/


true (more like £8 at current exchange rate, though it depends how badly your CC rips you off on the exchange rate) but if you buy two it cancels out the shipping and you get the 3 year warranty and "probably don't have to even return it if something goes wrong" return policy.

For what its worth I picked up a Joyo Classic Chorus the other day for all of about $40 - No idea what it is a clone of but I'm really impressed.

Straight up solid unit that gives all the shimmery watery goodness you could ever ask for. Only has rate and width control which does restrict tweaking but for >$50 you really cant complain. Only other criticism, the location of the 9v jack is ridiculous, pretty much right in the way of where your patch cable would sit - but again its something to overlook for the price.

Just debating the vintage phase at the moment or whether I shell out the extra cash for a MXR - honestly its a hard sell.

I think the Joyo Classic Chorus is meant to be a copy of a Boss CE-2.
I use a ToneRider CE-2 clone which is great, if the Joyo is anything as good I can imagine it's a great pedal.

I'm also contemplating the "MXR or Joyo" thing for a Phaser. Cos on eBay MXR phase 90s can go for peanuts. But I have heard that the Joyo is a clone of a Script Phase 90 as opposed to the block phase 90, and I much prefer the tone of Script 90s. So I'm not sure whether to wait for a good deal on a script or a Joyo.
...that or I could get both...one to be usable and one to dime for crazy sounds. =P

This is probably the computer-builder in me, but I'd NEVER cheap out on a power supply. You only need it to develop a fault or short out and you've got the potential of incorrect voltages going to your electronics, which in my general experience tends to fry them.

the tonerider's better than the joyo chorus (unless the one i have is dodgy, i've only tried mine). But the joyo phaser is very nice. never tried the mxr so i don't know which one it's a clone of.

Ah, well, the Tonerider is a great pedal. It'd be surprising for another company to beat it for a similar price. =)

There seems to be mixed opinions on what the Phaser is a clone of, I've read more accounts of it being "script"-like, but there are a few who have suggested it's a Block clone. But it's cool to know that the phaser is good! =)
