More about the Joyo JF-09

The Joyo JF-09 is of decent dimensions to fit most pedal boards, but not so small you step on other multi-effects pedals such as a looper pedal or distortion pedals, in the process, a pet peeve of most pedal board users. The speed can be adjustable from hardly noticeable changes all the way up to the high speed thrum of a modern choppy stutter.
