JOYO JF-307 Clean Glass Amp Sim Ironman Mini Guitar Effects Pedal
The JOYO JF-307 Clean Glass pedal is a miniaturised version of our JF-14 American Sound pedal. While there are definitely some differences between these two pedals, the Clean Glass is definitely made in the same vein as the American Sound. The Clean Glass is designed to emulate the classic tones of some of the greatest Fender Amps there have been. It produces a huge sparkling clean tone that belies it's small size (Don't let it fool you, it really is a tone monster). Start winding the gain up and you get into a brilliantly 'Tweedy' territory.
The Clean Glass works best used as either an excellent overdrive pedal or as an always on tone enhancer to really get the sparkle and shimmer you've always craved for your clean tones. Turn the tone control to 1 'o' clock and you start getting some great twangy tones when using single coils. With the drive and voice controls up at half way you've got an amzingly sensitive low gain drive. Pick lighter and it cleans up a lot, dig in and you're starting to get some great low gain crunchy rhythms.
With the drive and voice controls at 2 'o' clock you can get some really 'vintage' inspired lead tones when using single coils (think of a certain Mr. Clapton). With the drive and voice controls fully turned up you get a really nice high gain drive like you've dimed a good old Tweed Deluxe and are letting it wail.
Compared to the American Sound the Clean Glass is quieter overall, not that the American has ever been accused of being noisy. But we'll happily take the fact that it's even quieter than its predecessor. Again like the Rushing Train the Clean Glass has a little more gain available than the American Sound, not by much but it's there. The Clean Glass is also a little more focused and slightly less bassy than the American Sound. Due to the fact there is only a single tone control on the Clean Glass (rather than the full Treble, Middle, Bass compliment on the American Sound), having slightly less bass is not a problem, in fact it stops the pedal getting muddy and helps keep great note definition and clarity through all the dial settings.
The Clean Glass Amp Simulator lets you re-create many of the crystal clear tones that the classic vintage amps from California are known for. But it can do more, it packs a nice dose of gain and can deliver amazing lead sounds as well. Whether you use it direct into a mixing console, audio interface or in front of your amp, the clean glass will make you tone sparkle.
The JOYO Ironman pedals are very compact, versatile and housed in a solid metal case, with no compromise on the huge tones crammed inside this tiny pedal.
Flip your lid to keep your preferred tones protected, activate TRUE Bypass and the LEDs shine through, a very nice touch. The Ironman mini guitar pedal range are all supplied with 3M velcro and rubber pads for securing in place on your board.
