Be advised, the effect of this pedal is very subtle... I use it with my mustang V, which already models other amps, this pedal just makes it sound way more realistic and adds some dynamics to your playing.
Totally worth it for anybody that wants to improve their tone... You have to have a good ear though.
I've read some reviews of people hooking this pedal before their amp input... since this pedal has it's own pre amp, this way of hooking it up will produce some noise.
Connect it to your FX send return.
I also own the American sound .... both great... depending on my mood I play them both equally... You just can't go wrong with Joyo
To me, the most notable differences between the pedals besides physical size is that the CM is a little more naturally compressed with a little bit more sag to the feel. The CM does not clean up like the Joyo so if you are wanting the chimey tones I spoke about above, then the Joyo is the way to go. However, the Joyo will dirty up and compress also. As an analogy, if I relate them regarding feel to my Fender Twin and my Mesa Road King combo, I'd say the Joyo 'feels' more like the Twin and the CM more like the Mesa.
My message is this... If you are wanting a slightly or even heavy driven Vox tone for blues or rock, both will do the job and make you smile. If it's important to also get that semi-clean Vox 'Chimey' tone (see examples above) then the Joyo Actone is what you want - even if you could get the CM AC-Tone for the same price as the Joyo. I was so impressed with this pedal that I ordered the American. It also sounds great and if you want the 'Tweed' sound I'd highly recommend it also. At any price, the Joyo Actone is a bargain!
Listen...It's JOYO. You get WAYYYY more than you pay for (I mean they're only like $20) but it's not a boutique quality pedal. I gigged whis this bad boy for a couple months. It never once gave me any issues whatsoever. They're built to last.
As the sound:
It gets the point across - that you're using a trem. I used it for songs like "No headlight" in my coverband. It's not like crazy flexible or versatile, but again, it gets the point across. Highly recommended as an intro to tremolo or if you, like me, play live covers in front of a bunch of drunk college kids.
I can't bash on JOYO. They make their pedals with heavy duty construction and they've never failed me. They get the point across, and the price is always right.
I believe some context is very important. Yes, if you plug your Mexican made Stat into a 15W Mustang amp you probably won't be overwhelmed with the results. My setup is a Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul reissue thru either a Rivera or Mesa/Boogie amp. I am an obsessive compulsive tone freak and have accumulated as many stomp boxes along the way as the next person who reads this. And with my FT OCD pedal if I spend a lot of time tweaking it sometimes I can get pretty close to the coveted '60s Brit sound. That is the sound I'm usually after. The OCD is a pretty flexible pedal. The Joyo Brit box may not be as flexible but I can dial in that '60's Brit (will go so far as to say Marshall) sound right out of the box, with just a little fine tuning of the 3-band EQ. It's got that darker, thicker, what I call "round" sound, what Clapton called his "woman" tone (am still wondering why he called it that) or for more modern ears, the Warren Haynes with Allman Bros. tone, spot on. It even reproduces the minor degree of compression characteristic of Marshalls and I usually don't like to add compression. In sum, the distance from my basic setup to vintage Brit is not a great stretch. I next substituted in a Gibson Lucille (think ES-355) and voi-la, there's the Clapton "Crossroads" tone. The physical construction of this box, as others have commented, is totally top notch, as finely finished as my OCD which I thought was put together pretty well for $150. Last experiment, moved guitar and pedal to a Fender Blues Jr. This is the old kind with only one channel that stays pretty clean even when you crank it. Hugely different results here. My personal conclusion is that you'll get more out of this box if it's plugged into an amp that already provides pretty good natural break up. That doesn't mean that if you use this pedal in tandem with a solid state amp and a telecaster and you don't sound like Jimi Hendrix the box is a piece of crap. My only categorical criticism is, what are you doing playing with a solid state amp?
