    My local store had a special this week.

    Buy one Joyo, get one free.

    I just bought four of them.

    How can you go wrong at that ?

    Well, are you going to tell us which four you bought?

    I recently bought the US Dream and the Deluxe Crunch. I use the US Dream with my Deluxe Reverb. I haven't played around enough with the Deluxe Crunch yet. I bought them because I needed distortion pedal, as I had mostly overdrive pedals and could get a good distortion sound at lower volumes. The US Dream is bright, but works really well with my Deluxe Reverb.

    I bought the Analog Delay, Ultimate Drive, Dynamic Comp, & Noise Gate.

    I hear good reviews on the Joyo stuff so this seems like a steal.

    Might pick up a couple more if they are as good as I'm led to believe.:)

    I have three of those four. The Comp, UD and Analog Delay and they're all very good sounding pedals. You should be pleased with them. How did they price them?

    I've been using the Joyo tremolo for a couple of years now and love it.

    They normally retail at my local guitar store for $49.95 each which is cheap anyway I reckon.

    The last three days only, buy one, get one free.

    I couldn't resist at that. So I got the 4 pedals for $100 plus $10 shipping.

    They only had this as an online special for some reason that's why I had to pay ten bucks shipping and now waiting (long weekend here too) to get them.

    The store is only 10 minutes drive away !:confused:

    Might look at that one too.

    Sounds cool from the demos

    I've been to Melbourne, I didn't know anything was a 10 minute drive... :)
    That is one of the most spread out cities I have ever visited in my travels...

    Not complaining, I sure enjoyed my time there ...

    You did good, Brett Fuzz.

    I picked up the Pedal Tuner, Sweet Baby Overdrive, Ultimate Drive and Analog Delay @ $40 apiece.

    I think you'll be very pleasantly surprised with the Joyo pedals. I love mine!

    The Ultimate Drive is a sweet pedal, but definitely a high gainer. Check out the Sweet Baby as a low gainer or boost.

    It's a nice Tremolo. Supposed to be a copy of a Diaz Tremadillo.

    I like mine a lot.

    The Joyo stuff is good as well as the Biyang and Caline! If you don't care about the name on the pedal or how cool your board looks and care more about getting good useable sounds for great prices then go hard.

    My Joyo Digital Delay quit working after a few months. I haven't bothered trying to fix it. The experience kind of soured me on them.

    I liked the ones I had sound-wise, but the quality was not that good.

    They all broke and I dont even gig out.

    I hope yours do better!

    I've had a number of them for over a year, and they are all working fine.

    That's an excellent price from a local. Usually they got for anywhere from $30 to $40 each from US dealers.

    I'm not sure what players are doing with them that they break. I've been running some of mine for over two years using them daily for practice and playing both a full rehearsal and a jam once a week and a few gigs in between and never had one break.

    Some folks must wear lead boots or be putting them on taking them off their boards a lot. The jacks are a bit of a weak point with these so I'd keep 'em connected as much as you can. Even permanently if possible.

    The only issue I ever had was a sticking switch on the analog delay and all it took to fix that was to dribble a little tuner lube down the switch shaft and that took care of it.

    I've had mine for almost a year now - no issues thus far. They don't leave my PT Mini and I'm very careful with them.


    That said, if I ever do encounter issues, I think I'd give the Biyang Baby Boom! Series pedals a try - about $50 a pedal and a step up in materials/workmanship.
