Joyo JF23 Argos Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal

The JF23 Argos is a powerful utility for high-gain distortion, with impressive and versatile controls to suit any modern metal musician.

Joyo have analysed several classic drive tones to create a dynamic and responsive high-gain overdrive. The Attack control knob changes the drive characteristics, allowing you to shape your tone to suit your rig! Every amp reacts differently to overdrive, so this makes for a very flexible range of drive tones to suit any amplifier! You can colour your sound further and control the gain structure via the Tone, Level, and Gain knobs. 

The JF23 is tuned to suit high-gain amps already on the edge of breakup or pushing into distortion territories, and can help refine the character of any amp to craft a tight, aggressive, modern drive sound. Ideal for Djent and modern metal tones, the Joyo Argos is the perfect pedal to fine-tune a raucous, feedback-heavy amp tone into much more usable, contemporary metal tones.

The JF23 features an inbuilt Noise Gate to tame the hissy fizz typical of drive pedals, allowing you to craft an articulate and sharp drive that won’t feedback or buzz during your stops and between chugs, plus it is perfect for saving space on a crowded pedal board! Using the Gate control will also attenuate the low-end frequencies, so you can blend in a thicker sound and additional depth, or keep things tight, modern, and crunchy.

Love, love, LOVE this pedal! Gives me eq, clean boost and a noise gate all in one pedal. Saves a ton of space on my board too. Might just buy a bunch of them, absolutely perfect for metal on a budget.

If you know the original pedal this is emulating, it's a fantastic representation. And let me tell you, it's the best boost pedal I've ever used. You wanna get your distorted tones nice, tight, and chuggalicious (I know that's not a word lol), look no further than this pedal. Excellent work Joyo, as always!!
