The Joyo Dualklonz Multipath Amplifier...

There's a number of YT videos & demos for this. Some very informative; some annoying; some very informative but still annoying...

But in a nutshell (as I understand it) this amp is a dual channel analog 25w tube amp that can:

^ can use *any* power tubes (6L6, 6V6; EL34 etc)
^ provide multiple gain stage configurations
^ take multiple speaker loads & configurations
^ *replicate* multiple amp types (not digitally modelled)
^ be controlled via bluetooth with an app
^ it slices/dices/makes julienne fries

OK, so I lied about that last bit...

Is it too good to be true?
What are your feelings/opinions about the concept?

I know many of us may think "MIC gear (Joyo; Nux; Mooer etc) cheap crap".
However I'm not so sure that is a fair and accurate assessment anymore. They all seem to have upped their game in recent years.

FWIW, this amp is Italian design but mfd for the designers by Joyo.

So what do you all reckon?

Looks and seems very cool.

I'm not a person that needs this flexible of an amp. I have multiple amps to use when I want these different tones.

"Heck of a price tag."

Yeah they're going for $1600AU here, which works out to approx. $1250US.

Not chump change but, other boutiques go for as much or more. Guess it depends on ones wants & needs.

Me, I don't need one :^)

For me, this sort of thing falls in with amps like the Kemper Profiler: if you have a studio and need a lot of versatility in the tone department and don't want a bunch of different amps, this may work for you. Also, if you're a knob twiddler (NTTAWWT) this may provide inspiration for your musical adventures.

As a gigging amp though, there are too many bells and whistles. In general terms, the simpler an amp is, the more reliable it will be. Tone-wise, the fewer components there are in the circuit, the better the tone and response will be.

No amp maker has yet cracked the code on an amp that is all things to all players. A good amp and a few good pedals is still king.

How different is this from the Mesa Boogie Triple Crown?

Nothing really compares.


I've never even seen a Joyo amp (or dealer), and the "app control" aspect will be obsolete someday.

All good points.
And just FTR, I'm not advocating this amp and would never own one. I just thought it might make interesting FDP fodder.

The thing will probably initially sell well to millennials because apps broadly appeal to 'em.

"There's an app for that."

But it better have a cute logo.

No thanks! I've had a dozen amps throughout the years and I'm back to a single channel amp. It's where I'll stay.

Still not sure what an app is. Don't even own a phone. I'm definitely not a millennial.

It's the new buzzword for a program or software that's accessible via an icon, whether it be a phone, PC, amplifier, etc.

It makes my head spin but then my Mesa Boogie Mark IIc+ feels complicated to me. Eighty percent of my playing is through a '57 Fender Champ with an OD or Fuzz pedal in front. I think it's cool but if I bought it I'd never take the time to really utilize it.

I would be knob-dickin’ with it instead of playing songs.

"Tone-wise, the fewer components there are in the circuit, the better the tone and response will be."

After years of "experimenting" I finally came to the same conclusion. Always "sounded like me" no matter what I was playing....until I purchased my first Marshall. Now, I finally sound like everyone else! ;)

I'm guessing that's not a euphemism ;^)

But yes, it would be a tweakers' delight.

If I wasn’t forever fiddling with this amp I’d have it set up like a Marshall and leave it there - which drives home the most salient point.

I should just buy the amp I’m trying to recreate with this one.

IMO, etc.
