About this Joyo JF02 Guitar Effects Pedal - Ultimate Drive Distortion

Modelled on the Fulltone OCD pedals, the Joyo Ultimate Drive gives you a rich overdrive, bordering on distortion. This will surpass what a diode tube amp can provide. Open the tap on full and find the kind of spacious harmonics and response that a big overdriven valve amp will bring. This has a normal bypass method (it's not true bypass). Features a super tough aluminium alloy casing - Built to last!

From mild to wild

A very good clone that goes from overdrive to distortion at an excellent price. I have a few of these for different pedal boards, and one that I plan to mod. It is a 'must have' pedal and much cheaper than the brand name pedal it is based on - I have both and like the ultimate drive as much as the original pedal.

I’m very happy with this pedal. A quality build, what I really like about this pedal is when you increase the gain it doesn’t change the level volume much and it’s very easy to control with your guitar volume. It makes everything sound better and I leave it on all the time. Just increasing the gain if I want it dirtier. I always have the tone set about 1 or 2 o’clock. It can get a bit muddy before 12 o’clock. Everything works fine and I’ll never need any more overdrive or distortion pedals.. and yes I’ve had quite a few very expensive ones over the years.

Hi All I purchased this pedal about 5 or o years and it is still going strong. I love the features on it and how it responds to my picking sound and the way it cleans up when I turn the volume down. I can get a cool blues sound from it to that typical hard sound. This pedal has never let me down. Tony

Order this for Artist - shipping time excellent - and pedal sounds real good. Lots of flexibility and at an amazing price. Build quality is outstanding for the cost of the pedal

Fantastic overdrive pedal but no flow through

By: on 1 August 2018
I loved this pedal but when I put it on my pedalboard it doesnt allow for "flow through" so I suppose it is a pedal that needs to be used by itself, and it does that really well but buyer beware.

Great. Buy One

Hidden gem

Been researching for a distortion pedal for my bass and come across some great reviews for this pedal. Never thought you could get a good pedal at a cheap price. Really impressed with this pedal

Great pedal, goes from clean boost to saturated over drive with a slight Marshall tone. Very responsive to the touch and cleans up nice when the volume is rolled of. It's got a lot of gain and volume and still has definition in notes and chords and is really punchy. Highly recommend this pedal at a unbeatable price.

Great pedal, the sustain is mad, you can go and have a bite to eat, come back and its still going.

Best pedal I have bought

By: on 28 July 2017
Hi I have already done a review of this pedal which I found to be a remarkable pedal. Yesterday I put the Joyo British pedal then the ultimate drive and into my Blackstar HT-5R tube combo guitar amp and what a sound from strong sparkling lows through to British Plexi (aka Angus Young) tones. I was totally blown away by the sounds I can get out of these two pedals both brought from Artist Guitars of course. Don't think that just because this gear is cheap it is cheap in quality, I find the quality to be up there with pedals that are 6-8 times the price of one Joyo pedal. Grab one of these now whilst you can. Great service too. Thanks Mick H

Love this pedal

I play a tele through a blues jr. Great clean sound but sometimes I want some distortion. Got this pedal and I couldn't be happier. Great sound. Great price. Artist were good to work with also.

Fantastic must have overdrive pedal

By: on 2 July 2017
Hi I purchased the Joyo Ultimate Overdrive effect pedal about 10 days ago. I have only ever used a better overdrive/distortion which sounded nearly exactly the same it cost $500 Australian dollars as it was handmade and in USA so it was too expensive for me eve though it was a great pedal. That was over a year ago I have been listening to pedals for over a year and then I found the Ultimate Drive pedal. It sounds just as good as the American unit actually I think it has more flexibility that the other unit. It can handle heavy distortion and yet can be very clear and flute like as well depending on how it is setup. This pedal is worth five times more than Artist are selling it for, if you have a tube amp, you need this pedal. 10/10 great work guys. Now I need a 1968 Plexie Pedal please Joyo make one can you please stock it?

Joyo JF02 - Ultimate Drive

Very effective overdrive/distortion pedal. It seems to be able to stand between a smooth overdrive & a snarly distortion that very few pedals can manage - they are usually one or the other. Solid construction of the case, looks like it will last a while. Silly graphics but the sound is there - plenty of variation when the guitar's cotrols are used in conjunction with the pedal's controls. Great low price for what you get. *Gerry, Wollongong*

It delivers everything it promises

My Joyo Ultimate Drive Distortion pedal arrive today. It is very very good and delivers in spades. Love the easy to use and understand controls, and the rugged construction. It even came with a battery. This is my first Joyo product, It will not be my last. And having said all of that, just check out the price!!. The only small disappointment was the time it took to arrive. Sorry guys. I know that I live in country WA but having read elsewhere countless times just how quickly goods arrived I expected more. That'll teach me to live in the sticks. Other than that well done and you'll be hearing from me again. Ian Albany Western Australia

Fantastic pedal. Hard casing (not plastic like some other brands) and they sound great :) It's about time someone went back to basics with effects pedals. Very happy.
