JOYO JF-14 American Sound Guitar Amp Emulator Pedal
I ordered this excellent little pedal after seeing it reviewed on YouTube in a comparison review with its JF13 and JF16 stablemates. At the price, I decided there was little to lose by ordering all three, even though the review only showed the sound with a modified Telecaster. Ordered on a Wednesday night, the JF14 was delivered by Australia Post the following Monday, a day ahead of the initial tracking advice. I have all three of the Joyos plugged into different channels on my mixer for recording and rehearsal, with the guitar coming in via a Boss LS2 line switcher (though now I've discovered Swamp, I see I could have saved money on line switchers there, too). The JF14 has become my clean sound preamp and has a gorgeous sound (I use a 'Jazz' preset on my Presonus mixer) that I prefer compared with the Fender Twin clean sounds on my Line6 and Boss devices (whose programming I had found tiresome and whose sounds were prone to break-up). It does an excellent job with high-output humbuckers in clean form, as well as with a Telecaster and Stratocaster. It also does a very good Fender Bassman when cranked up, as per the review video. I have also tried using the clean sound with a Fender Precision Bass and it makes a good alternative to a DI box for getting the bass into the mixer. Clearly, if I had a pair of JF14s hooked up to a line switcher, I could get both Twin and Tweed sounds within a single song. A very satisfied customer.
