Guide - How to power your guitar effects and pedal board
There are a number of ways to power your guitar effects and choosing which method you use can make a difference to your board.

Whilst the 1st series, 2nd series of JOYO pedals and DrJ pedals all can be powered with a 9v battery, this is not the best option to power a board, it is primarily convenient. Your pedal board will only sound as good as your cheape..

Guide - What do Guitar Effect Pedals do?
You may have heard some of these pedal types banded about, but want to know a little more what they sound like. Joyo has a huge range of guitar effects that cover a wide range of guitar effect types. So we thought we would give you a brief explanation of what the effects are, what these types of effect pedals mean and what they might just do for your guitar tone. If guitarists all had the same pedals on the same settings, we would all sound the same, so there is no right, no wrong, no ultimate pedal, the result of tone is subjective, a personal quest. You are the one who decides i..

All about the Fuzz.
The Fuzz guitar effect was the first effect to ever be made into a ‘pedal’ form for guitarists. The sound, or what we recognise as the fuzz tone has been around for over 50 years, but is still one of the most used effects today. Through the years some people have altered and tweaked the early fuzz circuits into massively different effects while others have maintained the original circuits whilst shrinking them into smaller enclosures.For a long time guitarists had been trying to get their amps to distort by either turning them up or by poking/ripping holes in the cones of their amps speake..

MIDI has many more uses than just sending messages between keyboards and guitar gear. Mix Consoles use MIDI to store and control automation. Lighting systems also communicate via MIDI as well as many other devices that have adopted this language.MIDI is an 8 bit language, which b..
