    Glad to hear it is working out for you. I was kinda worried as I had not seen a follow up to the thread you posted a while back... (I'm sure it's me and my sporadic presence here). But, anyhow, Yeah! I'm glad we didn't steer you off course on that one. :D

    Truth is...( note: and I actually got a JOYO JOYO British Sound/ Marshall amp emulator too, from 11 Gauge)

    .... and this could just be how the Joyo AS interacts with the ONE amp I have tried it with, my Fender Frontman 25R-

    but this pedal's Drive knob does NOT sound good to me past 9:00 clock, and the same with Voice knob past 10:00- but sounds GREAT right there! - if I'm making sense.

    Funny, I kind of feel the same about the British pedal- A/B-ing them at these identical CLOCK settings:
    Low 11:00, Mid NOON, High 1:00
    Level 2:00, VOICE 10:00, Drive 9:00,

    * I can't tell the 2 pedals apart- BUT at these settings they do make amp sound better.

    ( I just crank amp EQ knobs, and adjust Volume and Reverb knobs)

    Edit- I have other great sounding amps- this whole 'experiment ' is just an attempt to make a cheap, portable ( and powerful) SS/10" Fender amp sound better for ' Winery gigs' - love the size and basic sound

    The MIII really does have a good DR tone! One of the best of its presets.

    I have an original ‘66 Deluxe Reverb and a Mustang III, version 2. The Deluxe Reverb model doesn’t sound the same to me. The Mustang sounds deeper and woolier and less lively.

    That said, it’s a good, clean Fender sound and I like it. Just different.

    I'll chime in in favor of the Mustang III; mine is a v.1 with an Eminence "Swamp Thang." Nowadays I only use it for outdoor gigs or when I'm backing a particular tribute singer we've been working with who insists on a clean but loud and aggressive lead guitar sound. For any other gig, I'm currently using one of these-- The volume and fullness of this little plastic box will blow you away:

    Well, until I get all of my research done... THR10II incoming, I know, this will be my forth experience with this series of amps. I have 5F2 sound in spades but, too much of a good thing, well you know. The timing will be perfect... the amp is due in Friday and, The Money Pit should be about ready...

    Strymon Iridium, plus you get a great VOX sound and good Marshall included.

    If you love Fender clean sounds, the GTX does all the Fender amps really well, and Tone masters are amazing.

    I love my Katana for clean sounds, no outboard fx,

    this is one of many beautiful clean tones, I love that it is solid for soloing yet remains a delicate light sound.
