    That's just a rebadged Harley Benton, and I'd be down with that if I was in the market for an amp.

    A poop in a poopsock still stinks of poop, a scam with a fancy website is still a scam.

    https://www.scamdoc.com/view/275521


    Paraphrasing the Monty Python skit : Scam scam scam scam, scam scam scam scam, SCAAAAM, luvverly scam.


    The Harley Benton is a rebadged Monoprice, which is a reboxed Laney. The Joyo JTA-05 is similar in that it's a Champ-a-like, but it features hi/lo inputs, valve rectifier and no tone control, unlike the LaMoHaBe. They're very different beasties. Both cool.

    Realistically, that's less than twice the price of one of their pedals, which are already inexpensive.

    I'm thinking this is not legit.

    Seriously?

    Don't you think it's odd that:
    The main things for sale on the page are Switchplates, Lanterns, Night Lights, Boxes and Bins and Hats?

    That their office is located in Nebraska but they ship to UK mainland addresses?

    That switchplates, Bass guitars, and hats all sell from between $50 and $70 ?

    Like it was just pasted over and over again

    Items color: “joyo amplifier......”
    Items height: “joyo amplifier.....”
    Country of origin “joyo!”

    I know that area of Omaha, and visited there in November 2019. The "Office" is in a multi-business office building, basically a one door, one room place to get mail. The phone number is an North Alabama area code. This is probably some University of Nebraska-Omaha student sourcing product from China to raise tuition money...a glorified Junior Achiever.

    Early in this circumstance that we're in right now I was looking for toilet paper online and came across a website I'd not heard of that has some listed that could be delivered. I went ahead and made a purchase, and begin thinking about it and searched the website and it had only been registered for a short amount of time, and people on Reddit said they thought it was a scam.

    Turned out it was just a guy's house and I called up and had my credit card cancelled.It was a very similar site, just had a variety of different things listed for sale. The credit card transaction was just under his name by the way. I would avoid this site.

    No it's not. For some reason that address shows up time and again for website scams. All of the scam guitar sites that sell Fenders Gibsons and Martins for one low price usually 99.99 use it.
    They steal pictures and content from websites like Sweetwater and then sit back and collect valid credit card numbers for resale.

    It's a scam, it's always a scam when you see these sites. Look at the front page and tell me if you find any reason to think they sell joyo products?

    It is a Google sponsored add. I just did a google search and it's there. I already have a 5F1 clone or I'd take a chance...not.
    Edit...never mind. I did a quick search and it's a scam site. you would think google woundn't feature it then.

    The scam site I ordered from that was less than 6 months old was featured on Google as well. People were saying the same thing about it, they were listing items that should have been way more expensive for really cheap prices. I was just looking for toilet paper:D
