    A first-octave fuzz quality!

    Joyo JF-12 Voodoo OctavePublished on 03/06/14 at 02:44

    This is probably a fuzz-octave analog of Joyo brand (you know, the drive pedals and amp simulation stamped Harley Benton? Them is). I had never heard before I turn to the topic of fuzz and octave-seen price references, sometimes more than 200 € ...
    In short, no way to edit anything, no PC connection, it's classic. A beautiful green box that looks more like TS, but ultimately it's harder! It was therefore all three knobs, a mini-selector, and 2 footswitch. Therefore giving retail from left to right: fuzz (gain), tone (frequency filter) selector mid-cut (cutting of medium frequency) and volume (ben er ... volume), both Finally footswitches allow respectively to enable or disable the octave,…

    In short, no way to edit anything, no PC connection, it's classic. A beautiful green box that looks more like TS, but ultimately it's harder! It was therefore all three knobs, a mini-selector, and 2 footswitch. Therefore giving retail from left to right: fuzz (gain), tone (frequency filter) selector mid-cut (cutting of medium frequency) and volume (ben er ... volume), both Finally footswitches allow respectively to enable or disable the octave, and enable or disable the pedal. Obviously indispensable in and out, the pedal can be powered by plugging the mains or with a 9V battery.

    Oh and there is a true bypass.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is more elaborate than on-octave fuzz that merely for the most volume and fuzz. In fact, it would be a clone of the Fulltone Ultimate Octave.
    As regards the knobs 3, no distraction is known of. Is adjusted roughly in terms of what we branch. Everything works fine, we have a good headroom and the tone is very efficient and progressive and the mid-cut switch allows cutting mids. The true bypass is great (it is not is a "false true bypass") in relation to two footswitches, this is where we really picks up the line pedals "volume-gain" in having the can activate or not the octave. Understand that this is a very special effect like that off in full set (we'll see about that below).
    In short: everything is functional and great quality for the price, everything is to find settings that suit you and not too touch.

    SOUND QUALITY

    When you buy a fuzz is generally where you're going, do not you know? This is a "classic" Big Muff fuzz type (ie not a "real fuzz" in the technical sense), but that's very similar, and as the sound is more "wild", then it is illusion and think more.
    The level of fuzz is available also impressive, we will crunch atypical (but not lower, and what crunch!) Until the storm fuzz and impressive sustain. The tone as mentioned above is very effective and can make a sound completely muted until fuzz vicious way Maestro Gibson through all grades, and everything is to qualify! The volume does not suffer from any complaint of problems at this level then.
    The mini switch provides a more modern sound by cutting the mids and give her more loaded bass with a hollow in the mids frequencies (normal ...) that completely changes the style of play because the sound is more prone to large powerful rhythms (not my type, but must say that not resist sending a few riffs of Black Sab 'occasionally!)
    Finally octave footswitch to activate the octave and there is Neil Young riffs that takes! However, it realizes we're not going to sculpt anything with this sound brothel! With two octaves (bass and treble) simultaneously we will have to make concessions and although the sound quality is, it's still very rough drafts agreement is purely a solo sound. Too bad we can not adjust the volume of octaves separately and not necessarily damage the octave is not activated regardless of fuzz. But it's all good though!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for over a month and I have not had to complain. I have great difficulty with distos so I chose rather fuzz and adds a slight crunch on my Vox AC15. Everything is falling! No need to put the fuzz too strong, and it adds to the sustain powerchords.
    I love all the sonic palette of fuzz, excellent. For now I have a lot wrong with the octave, but it will allow me to play something else! Play notes from 12th fret really make out two octaves simultaneously, before that, I only hear the bass octave.

    And all for € 35 on occasion, not much more expensive new ... we tend to forget but when you think about it is really crazy! With the experience I certainly would take a more expensive model just to see what may well justify the price difference.
    This is a fuzz that I recommend for players with experience as well as for beginners or curious about € 40 to test both effects (fuzz and octave fuzz) it seems perfectly reasonable to me!
