Want a classic Tube Screamer that’ll get you all those wonderful tones that have sold millions of records? Well too bad. They’re expensive. But wait, you CAN buy a Joyo Vintage Overdrive pedal for around $25 bucks on Ebay! Made with a rugged aluminum housing and the same controls as a classic Tube Screamer, this pedal is no-nonsense, vintage gain goodness. It works well providing all the gain, on a clean amp, for a warm Classic Rock sound, or you can boost an already cranked up amp to get some singing, stinging sustain and a blistering lead tone!
I’m playing my increasingly modified Ammoon Strat through my Blackstar ID Core 10 for this review.
