Joyo is sold under the Harley Benton brandname by one of the biggest traders over here in Germany. They sometimes differ in the name and colour of the Joyo's, but they're exactly the same. I own the AC Tone which is a Tech21 Liverpool copy and the Micro Stomp Clean Glass (designed as a Fender amp simulator) and the Micro Stomp Golden Face ( supposed to be a Marshall amp simulator). The AC Tone may loose to the original Tech21, but it is an excellent pedal - as are Clean Glass and Golden Tone. I can highly recommend them. That is, if you have no general objections against products from a chinese manufactory. But then, most companies (for any given or imaginable industrial product) produce their products or parts of them in CHina. This may mean supporting horrible working conditions or even (unwillingly?) supporting an oppressive regime. But then we shouldn't start arguing about an openly mysoginist and lying gouvernment in times of Trump, shall we? Today China doesn't necessarily mean bad quality; it depends on how serious an american/european company is about quality control. There are lousy products and there are some with ZERO difference to american/european standards. Anyway, it is simply beyond me to expect a pedal from the USA or an european company for a price of a Joyo.
