    I have other people tell me that theirs does not do this (I actually returned the first one I got and got another from a different Amazon seller)... Like I said, I haven't checked into it too much to try to see why, mine does this...

    I kind of want this but it sounds like it can get too aggressive pretty quickly, for an overdrive? I think I want both and overdrive and a fuzz, since they do different things. This seems like it gets into distortion mode pretty quickly. Hence I'm considering a different overdrive, even though it will be wayyyyy more expensive.

    Mine just came in the mail. BTW, hats off to USPS...the company that sold it is in Cali, and I got it within 2 days. Not only that, but they did a crap packing job on it and it still arrived undamaged.

    So the pedal...LOVE IT! Very easy to get a sound quickly, and as John said, no low end loss that I could hear. Plus it's got a tremendous range. Won't quite do fuzz, but honestly, it's so close to the sound that I use on my Team Awesome Fuzz Machine that I may forego the TAFM and just use the Joyo. Won't know for sure until I have another gig (tomorrow), but I think I could get by without it (EDIT: changed my mind about that, I think...not quite as heavy as the TAFM on the high notes...still will try it in its place, though).

    Anyway, call me a happy camper. Time to velcro it up and stick it on the board!

    I am saddened....mine bit the Big One last night :( Just ordered another. I'd rather have an actual Fulltone OCD but I just can't swing that even at used prices.

    Went to click it on and sound disappeared. Band stopped playing and a rapid pulse beat was coming from cabinet. Light on pedal would not illuminate. Unplugged pedalboard, straight to amp, everything fine. Removed Joyo from pedalboard, everyhing fine. Conclusion: Joyo pedal dead.
