The bypass switch has just the right feel, as well. So the knobs themselves are plastic but I took one off to see how they are put together. There is a metal set screw into a threaded metal insert that is embedded in the knob.
The performance is an overdrive with a capital OVER. The manufacturer states, "It is intermediate between distortion and overdrive.." For my taste, I run the Gain at less than 9:00, the Level just under 10:00, and the Tone between 1:00 and 3:00 when I play my Les Paul. I haven't tried this box with my Telecaster yet. Plenty of gain for any shredders I predict.
This is not the first Chinese pedal I have bought (I will leave the moralistic guilts to others as well), but it is by far the best made, even better that some USA made boxes. That is, if the Joyo Ultimate Drive endures. Only time will tell on that. In the event of any failure I will do a follow up. But so far I would say for 30 bucks this is the bargain of the year.
Here's an example where it saved me. I played at an event that would be hard to describe so I'm going to simplify it to this: There were a lot of musicians that jumped in and out for various songs and we quickly ran out of XLR spots and that all they had for me was a quarter inch aux jack. What this meant was that they told me that I could not use my usual rig of an Orange Micro Terror amp (20W tube preamp) into a direct box with cab emulation. The headphone out sounded terrible so I was pretty much without an amp. So I went to my bag, took the Joyo JF-16 British amp simulator out and plugged my pedal board into it and then the mixer. I dialed in a decent tone and saved the day. Of course, an actual amp is better, but in a tough situation or for practice, this pedal is great.
Just don't expect it to revolutionize your tone like I did when I got this before I got my orange micro terror.
