On top of all those effects and preamp models, the Gem Box III has 300 preset tones, plus 26 impulse responses already loaded. But it also has has the ability to load your IRs, too. The effects are arranged in nine effects modules, which are then adjusted via nine individual buttons. The internal effects chain can be re-ordered.
The unit has a built-in 52-second looper and a drum machine with 40 drum patterns, plus 10 metronome rhythms for practise use. Joyo’s Studio software is included too, letting you upload new amp models to the Gem Box III, That makes for a flexible ‘all-in-one’ solution for guitar players.
With two XLR outputs as well as USB recording it should be suitable for both live and recording duties. There’s also a headphone output, a stereo pair of mono jack outputs, a mini jack Aux In and an Expression output as well.
Earlier this week saw the announcement of the new adding to the wealth of existing products in this category like the , , or the board, to name but a few. Now comes the Joyo Gem Box III. The competition is certainly heating up in the multi-fx pedal market! Joyo’s new Box is retailing at a competitive price of USD 366, undercuting most of the competition.
In the end, it will all come down to the sound and build quality. I think this is where it will struggle head to head products like the Line 6 Helix range. But at this super-low price you know it will sell well. Perhaps it will punch well above its weight.
