The Joyo Dyna Compressor JF-10 is a re-creation of the early classic 80s Boss compressor, with very low noise. A relatively mild compressor effect, this is not a "clicky" type compressor pedal. Use the Sustain, Attack, and Level knobs to find your ideal tone. Attack can be raised for more definitive picking effect or lowered for a rounded guitar sound.
You're not going to find a better compressor for the price.
At first don't believe people people telling this is fake. This is vintage compressor. It is very low everything, low ratio(I'm not sure it is constant), low speed, low output (unless you max sustain knob). Some people love this type of compression and similar boxes can be very expensive, but for beginners it is like wanting to buy cheese and getting feta cheese. Raising sustain adds also some blur to playing. side effect of being mild everything it has no noise on all settings. What I really don't understand setting sustain 3 o'clock and level 9 o'clock give less compression than setting level on 12.
Anyway it's interesting as always on compressor for silent playing. I placed pedal last in chain. It removed fizziness from my DS-1 without adding much noise.
The build is not the best. On off switch works very hard and loud.
If you want a serious comp, check out the Wampler Ego or Diamond Comp Jr. This is a "light compressor" in the vein of the MXR M132. Quality is good and the only issue was playing nice with some of my Fuzzes. Best Comp under $100.
It does what it says. You can find them under $50. If you've never used a compressor and want to find out how and why, try this one first. If you like it, hooray, it was cheap. If you want a better one later, at least it was cheap. It's footprint seems slightly larger than your average pedal, and you'll have to rip off the rubber bottom if you want to velcro it to your board. Whatever Joyo used as a foot does not like velcro to stick to it.
Based allegedly on the MXR Dynacomp, this is a great pedal, it sounds fairly transparent but can add a little 'squash' to your tone as required and enhance sustain too.
Nice subtle squash - perfect for single coils, it's a compressor, is it worth going nuts on such a subtle effect? it does the job very well, I leave it on the whole time, it's tonally transparent and doesn't suck too much unless you really turn up the attack.
The pedal is pretty straightforward and has all the features you get on all the major name compressors and in some cases more. Good pedal, good features, and good sound, definitely a solid buy and unbeatable at under $40.
It's a nice, cheap pedal that does its job. I only really use it when I'm looking for tones for tight riffs and to smooth out lead tones. I like to keep my cleans and lightly driven tones free of compression.
