JOYO JF-15 California Sound Guitar Amp Emulator Pedal
JOYO JF-15 California Sound - Amp Emulator Pedal
The California Sound guitar pedal is designed primarily to be used in place of an amplifier when you are recording direct into your computer, or plugging straight into the mixing desk in a PA system. Replicating the Californian sound of a Mesa Boogie MKII played through a Mesa 4 x 10 cabinet, this pedal is a great time and space saver when you need to capture that true So-Cal rock flavour in your recordings, but don't have the facilities or budget to spend on mic'ing up the real thing at the high volume to produce the same tones.
3 Band EQ with Level, Drive and Voice controls
By using a combination of EQ and tonal adjustments, the JF-15 pedal enables you move from the classic old school, slightly thinner Mesa tone through to more modern overdriven depth and tone of the rectifier series of Mesa's. Whether beginning with the cleaner tone with the Drive down or with an overdriven tone for solo's (Drive up), you can adjust the Voice control to find the most suitable setting for you. No matter what Mesa style you are after, or what your musical taste, you will find the California Sound amp emulator pedal to be a highly impressive unit.
True Analogue - No Digital Clip
The advantage of using a pedal like this, apart from the impressive and versatile tones, is that it is a true analogue build. So unlike most digital guitar amp emulators found on computer software, this pedal will not produce the annoying digitised clipping sound when overdriving to the max.

Build quality is good but I wouldn't record with iBy: Ange Varthalis on 27 August 2016Build quality is good but I wouldn't record with it. Its noisy with my pedal board daily chain and there is no linearity on the voice knob. I dont think I'd buy joyo again.
By: AARON DYSON on 19 March 2016Great pedal at a great price. <EOL>Really nails that American over the top distortion and is very versatile at tone shaping. Cleans up really nicely as well.
