I bought a couple of Joyo pedals after reading all the good words here last week. I bought the flanger and compressor. I've never had a flanger before so I can't really compare (still have to figure out how to dial in the real big swooping sound). I do have a keeley compressor that I wanted to compare the joyo with. I'm not a big compressor guy but I have to say the Joyo holds up nicely. It's not as transparent as the keeley but it does sound nice. Much better then some of the cheaper compressor pedals which seem to give me a headache. For as much as I use a compressor, I think the keeley might have to go up for sale. I was wondering if the Vintage Overdrive is worth getting? I have a modified tubescreamer that is great, but if the Joyo is close.... Are there any other similiar (damn Chinese knockoffs) makers out there?
