JF-03 Crunch Distortion = Mi Audio Crunch box
JF-04 High Gain Distortion = Marshall Shredmaster
JF-05 Classic Chorus = Boss CE-2
JF-06 Vintage Phase = MXR phase 90
JF-07 Classic Flanger = ?
JF-08 Digital Delay = ?
JF-09 Tremolo = Diaz Tremodillo
JF-10 Dynamic Compressor = MXR Dyna Comp.
JF-11 6 Band EQ - MXR 6 Band EQ
JF-12 Voodoo Octave (Fuzz Ultimate Octave) = Fulltone Ultimate Octave
JF-13 AC Tone = Tech 21 Character, Liverpool

JF-17 Extreme Metal = EHX Metal Muff

Not sure you've got the JF-10 Dynamic Compressor right.

I'm basing that solely on the fact that the Dyna Comp only has 2 controls (output & sensitivity), whereas the Joyo has 3 (level, attack and sustain).

i think a few of those are wrong.

far as i'm aware:

You said:

JF-05 Classic Chorus = Boss CE-2- I think someone on freestompboxes said it was an ibanez CS9 clone.

JF-07 Classic Flanger = ?- I think it's the mxr flanger

JF-08 Digital Delay = ?- i don't think it's a clone as such, but i think it's a fairly stand pt2399 analogue-voiced digital delay type of thing.

i thought the ross compressor was pretty close to the dyna comp? might explain that (don't quote me on that, though).

JF-31 Noise Gate = ?- I dunno for sure (I haven't tried it), but i'm guessing by dint of the fact it only has one knob it's gotta be either a decimator or mxr clone, right?

JF-32 Plexi Drive = Wampler Plexi-drive (???)- I strongly suspect it's a carl martin plexitone clone. Its colour scheme is the same, the knobs match up, and the clips i've heard of the carl martin (I haven't tried it) sound almost identical to my joyo.

JF-35 Pocket Metal = ?- I haven't tried it but i've heard people say it's a boss metalzone (more or less).

JF-37 Analog Chorus = ?- I haven't tried it, but if the other joyo chorus is indeed an ibanez clone, this one could well be the ce2 clone.

JF-38 Roll Boost = ?- I've heard people say it's a catlinbread Super Chili Picoso clone.

JF-39 Deluxe Crunch = ?- I've heard people say it's a fulltone plimsoul clone.

i am quite shocked. i youtubed a few of these vs the real pedals and they seem to sound quite similar. i know a youtube isnt that great, but i expected to hear any form of tonal change and really didnt.

are these things legit?

You are right. And what's the JF-10 clone of?
#11
^ no problem

I'm guessing the jf10 is either the ross as they said or the dyna. I think they're pretty similar. the other thing is, not all of them are one to one clones, sometimes they're slightly tweaked. the shredmaster clone has no bass knob, for example, but that doesn't mean it's not very, very, very closely based on one.

yeah.

don't get me wrong- they're made to be as cheap as possible. whether i'd want to rely on one for an important gig is a whole other question. but they do sound pretty good, especially considering how cheap they are.

they aren't the only cheap clones available, though.

well right. but other comparable pedals like behringer should be smashed immidiately with a sledge hammer upon opening the package.

are joyos made of metal?

That's a bit harsh - if you're only practicing at home some of them are OK, but I definitely wouldn't gig them. I had the Behringer Delay/Reverb pedal a while back and it was acceptable.

However, I once tried a Rockburn branded pedal (made by Belcat) once, it was the absolute worst thing I'd ever used. Even when it was off, the "true-bypass" was so poor it completely ruined my tone, even to the point where it distorted my clean sound.

I don't know how internationally available they are, but another good but cheap brand is Artec (sometimes branded as Guitar Tech). I've tried a few of their pedals & they're pretty high quality & are built really solidly.


EDIT: For your entertainment, here's the review of the Rockburn pedal I tried.

that poor effect seemed to be there when i was using behringer pedals. it was so bad the owner took it off his board and never used it again. it was at a gig.

behringer pedals aren't bad at all soundwise but they won't take a beating. metal enclosure doesn't mean tha the footswitch isn't crap etc so don't be fooled by that.

The plastic on Behringer pedals is actually quite sturdy. You can smash the thing to a floor and it stays intact.

Same cannot be said of the knobs and the insides however.

yeah I had a few and they held up ok but as has been mentioned they probably wouldn't hold up well for gigging. kinda my point as just because the casing is better the guts r still cheap and may not hold up. footswitches tend to be the most notorious for that.

just to add to that list, I strongly suspect the hot plexi is the carl martin plexi tone, not the wampler. I haven't opened mine up, but it sounds almost identical to the soundclips on the carl martin site, the case is the same colour, it has the same knobs, etc. etc. etc.

i've heard (on freestompboxes) that the chorus (the older one) is the ibanez one, and the flanger is the mxr. i think i heard somewhere that the pocket metal might be a tweaked MT2, but I'm not sure about that.

JF-39 Deluxe Crunch is same as Fulltone PlimSOUL / and EHX Soul Food /and KLON KTR

KLON KTR and JF-39 sharse same knobs and colourway resemblances too... Pics here...

(Invalid img)

This has been a subtle pedal just doing its thing - a play and a listen will convince you. Are also YTube cross references to support this.

As i said over at the fretboard, from all i heard the deluxe crunch was a plimsoul clone, not a klon clone- the plimsoul isn't a klon, as far as i'm aware. I could be wrong, but

My 2 minutes search revealed nothing that makes me think about the plimsoul being a klon clone.

Plus, since I'm already here, the JF-35 is a stripped down version of the extreme metal which is a clone of the metal muff, so if maths' with me tonight, the pocket metal is a stripped down version of the metal muff.
And even if it's not so, it's not a clone of the metal zone for sure.
