A fine alternative to the amazing Boss LS-2 Line S

By: on 14 June 2024
This is an incredibly useful pedal. Everyone should have at least one. It has the same functions and layout as the Boss LS-2, but with larger controls and clearer print for more confident usage. It is less expensive. These allow for one input to a choice or combination of amps; or two instruments to the same amp; effect loop selection, parallel combination or bypass, with volume control of each loop. Once you get one, you will wonder how you managed without.

An excellent LS-2 Clone

By: on 12 April 2024
Joyo JF-24 Orthros Line Selector ….. “ORTHROS”??? What on earth is that?!? Orthros is a kind of religious service in a monastery, or a boss in the Final Fantasy series, but I struggle to see the relevance of either to this pedal. I’m thinking Joyo perhaps meant to call it “OrthrUs” which, in Greek mythology, was a two-headed snake-tailed dog owned by a guy with three bodies — still a nebulous connection, but at least it would evoke the idea of multiple I/O points! LOL :-) Anyway, on with the review ….. Let’s get the obvious out of the way first ….. As a previous reviewer alluded to, this box is pretty much a blatant clone of the Boss LS-2 Line Selector, right down to the knobs, the green/red lights, the Input selection options, the I/O jacks, and so on. Mind you, that’s no bad thing, since the LS-2 is something of a little-known hero in the Boss stable, given the versatile possibilities that make it a real Swiss Army Knife when it comes to signal routing. As I already use two LS-2’s (on multiple pedalboards), perhaps a user comparison of Boss vs. Joyo might serve as my review ….. (1) PRICING: The Joyo wins hands-down here, at around 40% of the Boss new price. (2) FEATURES: Pretty much line-ball — both do the same job (which was obviously Joyo’s intention!). (3) DESIGN: (a)The Joyo has the Send/Return jacks at the sides, with the Input/Output jacks at the top end — that’s less “crowded” than the Boss, which has them all very close together on the sides, so the Boss is more of a logistical pain if you’re using right-angle patch leads. The Joyo’s more “spacious” design comes at a small price, as the JF-24 is wider than the LS-2 by about 25 mm (the height and length are pretty much the same) — not a deal-breaker, but perhaps relevant if you’re very tight on pedalboard space. (b) Personal preference, but I like the clean lines of the Joyo better — the knobs are larger and easier to see at a glance. (c) Both can be battery powered, or (more likely) run from your usual 9V pedalboard supply. (d) Oh, and despite another overseas seller of this pedal claiming that it’s True Bypass, it’s not. (The Boss LS-2 isn’t, either.) That means, of course, that the pedal is Active/Buffered Bypass, meaning that it needs power for your guitar signal to pass through it, irrespective of whether it’s on or off. Mind you, IMO, that’s not a bad thing — while we could argue all day about the advantages/disadvantages of True Bypass, the fact is that it can be more prone to cause “popping” sounds when buttons are stomped on, and that’s something you don’t want in a switching pedal. (4) BUILD: Of course, Boss quality is fairly legendary, but Joyo also builds some pretty good stuff, in my experience. Knobs are plastic, but robust enough, and the momentary-type activation button is solid. Look, I haven’t tried drop-kicking the JF-24 around the stage, but I’d say its metal frame will handle normal usage for years to come, particularly if it’s just sitting on your pedalboard. (5) DOCUMENTATION: The Joyo “manual” is very sparse (basically, one side of a tiny A5 sheet, with the other side in Chinese), but then the Boss one isn’t exactly a Shakespearean work either (just one side of a larger sheet, really). That’s a pity, because their capabilities go way beyond the most obvious connections. Boss at least provide a separate “Sample Settings” downloadable PDF (in addition to the manual) that outlines a range of other possibilities — if you buy the Joyo, I suggest it would be worthwhile looking at that PDF as well to give you some ideas. ………. As an owner of both the Boss and the Joyo pedals, which would I choose? I’d go for the Joyo — less than half the price, better design (IMO), albeit taking up a bit more pedalboard space. If that (slightly) larger size isn’t an issue for you, I’d say the JF-24 is the pick of the two.

Limitless potential - every pedal board should hav

By: on 7 March 2024
Been in the market for a "Line Selector" pedal for some time now, so I was thrilled to see Artist has stocked this JOYO version for half the price of the market alternative! Insane amount of potential for routing pedals/guitars/amps in your setup, it's the must-have pedal you didn't know you needed. I use it as a parallel mixer to blend two overdrives/distortions/fuzzes to create brand new tones.
