Joyo R05 Revolution Series Maximum Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal

From smooth & crunchy vintage overdriven tones to producing immense distortion sustained tones, this pedal delivers it all. Definitely a pedal for those who are obsessed with bands that are of the style of The Rolling Stones, Pearl Jam, Cream and the like.

This pedal is a great all rounder offering sonic options that stretch from vintage to modern soundscapes. It features a volume. tone, gain and boost control. It has a toggle switch which allows you to control the brightness of your mid-frequency and another toggle switch to change the circuit clipping mode from MOSFET or Diode.

While the R05 is a designated drive pedal it does offer great versatility between rhythm and lead guitar playing. Firstly it is a great riffing machine but if you need to switch from playing chunky riffs to launching into a ripping solo simply add the boost side of the pedal to your existing signal and your lead will sail over the top of any mix with sublime ease!

The R Series or Revolution series is the 4th generation of guitar effects from the Joyo brand and all of this series feature very cool ambient LED lighting that guarantees that your pedal will stand out on stage. The lights can be toggled from a switch on the rear of the pedal with 3 modes of lighting available via simple adjustment.

  • 'Sync' to the footswitch - The LED ambient lighting on the front and rear of the pedal with shine bright when the footswitch is pressed, also illuminating the LED effect indicator on the top of the pedal.
  • 'Always' - The lights are always on, but the pedal is only activated when you press the footswitch and the LED effect indicator comes on.
  • 'Off' - The lights are off, the LED effect indicator comes on when you stomp on it and activate the pedal.

This is certainly a cool pedal that really rocks and would be a great addition to any pedalboard. Check it out !!!

Great Distortion Pedal

By: on 16 January 2020
It's a great overdrive/distortion pedal. Great sounds, very diverse. Easy to use and smaller than I expected.

Outstanding product

The Maximum Overdrive is a great pedal. The variety of sounds it produces is amazingly diverse and for the money, you'd be hard pressed to find a better overdrive/distortion pedal. It won't do the heaviest of sounds, but it'll get heavy - I don't use it as a heavy distortion frequently, but when I do it's better pedal than I am a player. Actually, it's a better pedal than I am a player in general. Can't think of anything that would make it better, really.

Cool pedal that offers overdrive & boost at a price that is very affordable. Once again, excellent service from Artist Guitars.

Full-Drive 2 Circuit - It's Amazing

If you know about the Fulltone Full-Drive 2 Mosfet drive pedal, you'll understand this pedal immediately. It's reasonably-well made (knobs are a bit cheap) with a very sturdy chassis. Sounds very good (as you'd expect) and it's a joy to use. A bit cramped in the R-series enclosure (the bigger chassis of the R09 Vision would have enabled a more faithful Full-Drive layout) with the volume knob a tad too close to the drive switch. All in all, it's brilliant.

Fantastic Pedal

I'm contstanly using this pedal now. I used it to get the tone on the following guitar cover Using a clean tremolo setting on my MUSTANG GT40. The boost function is so nice as well.
