IMHO Joyo has done a nice job with most of these pedals. Quite a few of them clone the originals very effectively for a fraction of the price. Longevity may becomes an issue but so far my experience with them has been positive.

Out of the six I've bought so far only the analog chorus had an issue and that was simply a sticky footswitch that disappeared after I sprayed it with a little tuner lubricant. Tonally I like the sound of it as well as that of the others I've bought.

I'm sure there are better sounding pedals out the but how much better is the question. Is it worth paying $150-$200 for an overdrive that's only marginally better sounding or quieter than one that goes for $30-$40? I have no problem paying twice this for better features or tone but that's where I draw the line. Paying 5x that for little or no gain seems over the top to me.

So I'll hand the Joyo folks a compliment. As it stands they've produced a very nice line of pedals that do the job for the average guy who only plays at home and can still be effective on the pedal boards of pros and semi pros.

I own the American Sound pedal, which I will have to say is fantastic. I can easily play anything from Eric Clapton through to Metallica through the pedal. Or I could, if I had enough talent. Let's just say the tones are there.

I just wish Joyo would make a reverb pedal, or had a reverb knob on their amp modelling pedals.

I picked up a crunch distortion recently. I like it. It does the Marshall in a box thing pretty well. It's solidly built. Great buy for $30.

There were a few high end pedals back then but not like the selection of boutique stuff we see today. There's big money to be had from big profit margins and the turn over is huge. You spend just one day around here reading threads on guys tone quests and looking that their boards or the list of their backups and discards and you can see that.

Back then Boss was pretty much the top of line stuff but now they're simply a mid priced line. One of the more expensive lines back in the '80s was tc electronic. Their Stereo Chorus + Flanger sold for around $300 then and still does today. I had one of their original Line Driver + Distortion pedals and it was also a $300 pedal as was the later Red Classic version of it that I have now. $300 was a lot of dough for a pedal in the mid '80s but they were better than most anything else out there.

Love my ACTone!
I still can't believe it was only $40.
If it lasts a year, it was worth it.

Tremolo is uneventful. Not to fussy on the vintage OD or the ultimate. Just not my thing. Nothing wrong with them if you like that sound. But the Sweet Baby is the best dirt pedal I've owned. Love it.

My favorite thing about it is I know I have to set the rate to exactly 3:00 to get my sound from it.

I just got a Joyo JF-14 American Sound and i am very impressed !

But i have a question:

i bought it from Amazon and on the photo on their webpage the pedal has "true bypass" written on it. The one that i got delivered has only "bypass" written.
Does this mean that there was a previous generation that was not true bypass or is it only a cosmetic difference, like they thought they would sell more if "true bypass" was actually written on it ? ?
I compared the signal with the signal without the pedal connected and it seems that there is no tone loss.
What's the deal ?
Thanks

I wouldn't trust anything written by Joyo on or about these pedals to be accurate. ymmv. If the bypass sounds fine then what's the worry

Ive got the dyna compressor. It is fantastic. I do not use pedals a lot. But this is getting very close to an "always on" pedal. Great value IMO. Ive heard the switches can be crappy and they are hard to replace, i think if this one died I would definetly go buy another one.
