Joyo JF-314 Husky Drive

Doggone good drive

  • £49
  • $89
The Husky apes Fulltone's famous OCD overdrive

Our Verdict

Good with single coils, but works OCD-style wonders with a humbucker-equipped guitar.

Pros

  • Decent aping of an OCD. Excellent value for money. True-bypass.

Cons

  • Not much.

The Obsessive Compulsive Drive is the basis for a wealth of pedals, and the Husky Drive - an addition to the IronMan range from China's Joyo - is no different.

"Joyo's IronMan apes the sound with a sweet, fat amp-like drive that covers all styles of rock and blues"

It's a much-imitated design for a reason, and Joyo's IronMan apes the sound with a sweet, fat amp-like drive that covers all styles of rock and blues, while the high/ low peak switch offers aggressive clipping and softer drives respectively.

It'll thicken up single coils a treat, but we preferred the sounds with humbuckers for beefy barre chords and slick, sustaining solos.
