Product Description

Product Description

JOYO ultimate octava pedal audio gives the guitar player some really cool options to work with. The first of these is the standard fuzz distortion, which adds tons of layers of harmonics, which remaining smooth enough to satisfy jazz and country players. The second is the out-of-this-world octave effect, which can be engaged independently of the distortion effect. This sound is really different, and it's perfect for cool sound effects or alien-sounding tones being blended in with the raw signal. The other features of this pedal aid and abet when it comes to reserving a permanent place in the pedal chain. The mid cut allows you to scoop out some of the body, which works nicely when thrashing out some crunchy power chords, as does the tone knob, which will be the reins on your dark, nay, bright horse - the highest notes with the octave pedal on - that sounds like tin cans falling from the sky and breaking into glass figurines on marble flooring. Best part is there's no clean up. The JF-12 allows rock, blues, jazz, funk, fusion and even country guitar players to access creative sounds from an affordable, spicy pedal.

4.0 out of 5 stars a bargain 17 Feb 2012
By nick
Real Nice for that 60's/70's funky worm guitar fuzz lead sound. The octave up is ok. But for the money a total bargain. Top build quality and no noise or sound colouration due to the true bypass when switched off. I will be trying some more of these joyo pedals. I've played profesionally and produced records for over 15 years.

Yes there are better fuzz pedals out there and I have used a few, but for value the joyo takes some beating.

Tone - 4.5 star
Value for money - 5 stars
Build Quality - 3 stars
Versatility - 4.5 star

I have played over 10 years and the Hendrix/ SRV tone is something I have studied for as long (this does not make me an expert but I want you to have some confidence that I am aware of what a good octave Fuzz sounds like). This Joyo pedal is a clone of the Fulltone Ultimate Octave without the USA build quality.

At first this Joyo octave pedal sounded rubbish to me. I could not get a decent fuzz tone out of it in a year of trying and found it so harsh sounding. The only time I heard a good tone was when I turned the fuzz down to its lowest setting and ran the octave part of the circuit with a separate hand built germanium fuzz. Many people recommend doing this anyway but then what's the point of the fuzz part of the circuit if you can't use it seperate from the octave? People normally do this so as to only use the octave part of the pedal when their octave pedal only has 1 foot switch, i.e. octave fuzz on or off. I wanted separate octave or fuzz and that's why I bought this pedal so after a year of fiddling around with this pedal I thought it was one for the heap until I ran it with a tube screamer clone (MJM Phantom overdrive). WOW - where did that come from? Running Guitar, Joyo Octave fuzz, Overdrive sounded naff but Guitar into overdrive then Joyo Voodoo Fuzz is in my opinion awesome. Hendrix silicon tones galore. Set the fuzz and overdrive low and use guitar vol and tone controls for a vast palette of tones. For the octave use the classic set up of neck pickup, vol 8 to max, tone zero and holy cow. I am now getting such great seperate fuzz and octave fuzz tones from this pedal blended with an overdrive which was so unexpected after its initial disappointment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Average Compared To Others 18 Feb 2012
I bought this alongside the Vintage Overdrive wanting a fuzz pedal to give me more mids than my Big Muff Pi. The appeal was the price, the reputation of other Joyo products and the Mid cut switch.

If I did not own the Big Muff, I think I would have really liked this pedal. However, the Big Muff is industry standard and it really takes some beating. The Joyo fuzz in comparison has more mids yes, but a less defined fuzz sound.

The dials are incredibly touchy and are just plain harsh past about 3pm - the fuzz sound is very harsh generally and to retain some of the bottom in the sound I had to keep the tone knob very low. The volume is also way too quiet meaning I couldn't use this alongside any other pedals live. The only time I would use this is when recording for a specific part and not as a basic sound as it is just not good enough for that.

One thing to mention is that the Joyo appears to have been copied from a bad schematic - there are caps that are wired incorrectly and some other changes had to be made to make this pedal more useable. Easy for someone used to circuit boards, but not the lay person.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend this pedal, and for another 25 or so you can buy the industry standard Big Muff Pi which even with it's drawbacks is still the pedal to beat.

Don't let it put you off any of the other pedals though as Joyo are making some good stuff - their Vintage OD and Ultimate Drive are so good that I would recommend buying them regardless of what other gear you have and incorporating them into your set up (as I have done).

2.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for 25 Sep 2013

Good: robust construction, lots of controls, cheap
Bad: fuzz is poor, octave effect almost unnoticeable, power socket on the side so daisy chain needs to be very long.

Maybe I've been spoiled by my AKAI Deluxe Distortion but this just has fuzz and it's not good. The sound is unsophisticated so you'll need to work hard to get a playable tone / fuzz from it.
