Joyo Ultimate Drive

A cheap Chinese overdrive which I bought after reading that my Freekish Blues Alpha Drive is ‘cloned‘ from it.  Amazing sound for under £30.  Get one.

But nb – they’re not true bypass despite he on-case legend. After a while. I found a loss of bass through my pedalboard when it was switched out – but not anymore as my good friend Doc Ika modded one of the caps in the circuit. No loss of bass and a further improved od sound too. Brilliant.

    I have one of these, but it’s marked as bypass only. It’s not bad for £30, but it’s not a pedal that’s regular on my board. And yes, it does suck a little tone, but not so much that it bothers me.
