It feels like Joyo was one of the first guitar pedal manufacturers to produce entire ranges of stompbox clones. Plenty of companies had based their range of pedals on an established brand’s collection, such as Boss. But as far as focusing on trying to ape famous guitar effects without doing much else, it seems like Joyo was one of the leaders.
Although they’ve always had a bit of a reputation for looking ugly (it’s common for people to sand down and/or repaint the Ultimate Drive clone of the Fulltone OCD, for example). Joyo pedals are regarded as sounding anything from pretty good to down-right great.
See our list of Joyo pedals and their clones to see how you can get top-end tone at rock-bottom prices.
