Hello everyone, my name is Zach and I have just recently joined tdpri. Anyways, being a reader of this forum, especially the stomp box section, I have decided it is my turn to contribute to you people who have helped me learn so much. So, on that note, here is my review on the very-much-hyped Joyo Vintage Overdrive. I began my quest for an overdrive shortly after I witched to full tube. All of do at some point (at least most of us). I first had a Bugera v22, which I hated, and then moved on to a Fender Champ 600 and a Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissue. Something about playing a fender through a Fender produces some kind of magic. My fender combination complete, I searched for weeks for the overdrive tone I wanted. I loved, and still do love, the John Mayer bluesy OD that is warm but has a bit of a mid range sparkle to it. I went down to my local Guitar Center, played on everything from a TS9 to an OCD and came home. I loved the TS9 and the TS808. They gave me what I wanted, sort of. I found the 808 to be more warm, the 9 to have that midrange sparkle. It was frustrating, but I guess I was going to have to buy both. But wait, after searching the depths of the internet I found out about the Joyo Vintage Overdrive, how it was suppose to be a tube screamer clone at an affordable price. I had just got a big check in the mail so what the heck, I ordered it. I got it int he mail four or so days later and plugged it into my Vox AC30vt (so I could hear just the tone of the pedal, the same thing I did at guitar center) and I was blown away. It had all of the amazing qualities of both the TS9 and the TS808 for about $40! And, on top of that, it could get even more snarly cranked up. Seriously guys, this pedal rocks. Go try one out.
