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.

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.Read more ›
The tone range is unbelievable - manipulated by a tone knob and mid cut switch. It can go from thick and low ‘muffled’ sounds through to high end ‘squealing’ with the ‘Octave Up’ feature, which works best on higher string lead/solos. Whether you’re playing classic Hendrix, Zep, Kravitz or more modern and heavy stuff like Fu Manchu, Kyuss, QOTSA or Clutch - this pedal will give you the tone you’re after, providing you’re willing to spend some time finely tuning it.
At under £30 this is unbeatable value and great build quality. My only niggle is that - like all Joyo pedals - the footswitches are quite harder than most other pedals. Way cheaper, way smaller, sturdier, and way more versatile than my Big Muff Pi.
2. Octave does essentially nothing (I really struggle to hear a difference when it is on/off)
3. Playing more than one string at a time causes some extremely muddy sounds which are unusable
4. Tone itself is extremely harsh, although this could be alright in very certain circumstances
5. Build quality seems alright, but this shouldnt be a selling point...
It really, really, really isn't worth getting this if you want a fuzz tone despite the appealing price tag. Trust me, you'll be happier spending twice as much on something like a muff.
The final assembly is where it falls down - the wiring to the switch on mine was a mess and whoever built it paid no attention to polarity, but inserted the electrolytic capacitors seemingly in random directions. I didn't particularly mind, I fixed mine and I think it sounds fantastic. What most people miss with this pedal (assuming you have one that is correctly assembled) is that you really need to run it into a Wah Wah, an Envelope filter, or into a fixed filter. Otherwise it is a bit harsh.
I recently got an invitation from JOYO as a previous customer for several of their pedals, to enter a competition by going to their new web site and writing some reviews, which I did. I mentioned the incorrect assembly (I also have a JOYO Classic Flanger and that didn't work at all when I received it. It was fine after I soldered the bucket brigade chip back in) and ... they did not publish my reviews, at least they haven't yet.
I'm noticing this is perhaps a common thing for manufacturers - they invite customers to write reviews, but then don't publish anything that contains any hint of criticism of their product. Which is partly why I'm posting this review to Amazon.

I heard a band use this pedal shortly after making a Foxx Tone Machine clone and immediately spotted the screaming octave fuzz totally flying above the rest of the live mix. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Mr. Paul D. Maher
The pedal creates a severe overdrive/fuzz effect and the octave switch just makes the sound even harsher. This is not a quality pedal then again it was cheap!Published on 11 Jan. 2014 by Andreas Colasanto
Yes there are better fuzz pedals out there and I have used a few, but for value the joyo takes some beating.Published on 29 Nov. 2013 by EF
