    its been a few years now since the joyo vintage od has come and has been touted as one of the best ts clones. how many are still using it and how is its durability, specially the switch?

    thanks, ldr

    I like mine a lot. It’s not on my board right now, cuz I don’t use it with my current project.

    I like it more than the TS9. I sold the Ibanez and kept the joyo.

    planning to get one as a booster to the ultimate drive in my second board. the nux od3 i was using had some intermittent switch problems and id like to make sure the joyo vod doesnt do the same since i use it quite heavily

    I stomped on mine a lot and it’s never gave me switching trouble. For the price, it’s definitely worth a try.

    No probs with mine. All my Joyo's have lasted. I'm selling them off now though, and a Vintage Overdrive is about to be next. Good pedal, but I've gone to a multi.

    Don't have the VOD, but have 7 or 8 other Joyos going on 8 years, not a problem with a single one. The 2nd gens, w the slightly smaller, more rounded enclosures (Sweet Baby, etc), seem more flimsy to me, but again, all still working 100%.

    Can’t really speak to this as I bought mine used, but it has developed an extremely bad switch pop. Unusable at this point. I’m going to try the resistor trick when I get time. Great tone, though.

    Just got a Celine Pure Sky. Can’t wait to try it out tonight.
