This little guy arrived in the mail yesterday - almost missed it but found it in the greenhouse. It's a Joyo vintage overdrive, which is essentially a clone of a ts808, they make no effort to hide this fact, they even say it on the website. Anyway I'd been looking for a tube-screamer for a while to tighten up the high-gain stuff on my Blackstar HT-20.

It most certainly does that very well, gives a much more focused sound with volume max, gain pretty much at zero, and the tone just past noon. Aside from this, it gives a bloody fantastic general overdrive tone when used on the clean channel. I feel it really nails the Dire Straits tone.

If I can motivate myself to do some recording tomorrow or if it's not too late when I get home tonight, I might do something little for soundcloud - I'll link it if I do. I highly recommend this pedal, £30 off of amazon, I can't ever see the need for replacing it in the od department. All in all very happy, and I'm sure I'll be ordering more from this little company in the future.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Dunnow, maybe I should get one too...

Let us know how that works, and happy NPD

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

There are side-by-side A/B demos of this and a variety of od pedals on youtube, it's honestly hard to believe how good it sounds. The gearmandude vid has it with an ibanez ts9 and you can barely hear the difference.

And yeah at this price...
HNPD! They're really good, especially at the price! Perfect for boosting AND for a mild drive tone through a clean amp
