Great pedal, gives an authentic AC30 sound. Very happy, this pedal is permanently on, and gives no unexpected 'hiss' -

Some reviewers complain about the 'hiss' on this pedal - the AC30 is a valve amp, turn up the gain, voice and treble on a valve amp or this pedal and you will have hiss. If you play at a low output level of the guitar - then turn down the gain and voice levels on the pedal, then the 'hiss' factor will not be there.

The overall tonal range and dynamics of this pedal are very good. Set at low gain and voice levels there is a tonal quality of 'chime' (U2) that the AC30 produces, and on this pedal it does that very well.

Set at the higher gain and voice levels then the overdriven sound kicks in with a singing tone that has grit without being over harsh.

The tone controls - low, mid, and high when set and 12' give the same tone as your guitar, turn up and its a boost effect, turn down and its reduction. Excellent tonal ranges are possible.

Level, is the level, it also acts as boost.

The overall action and dynamics of this pedal is directly related to the output setting on your guitar. When you first use this pedal set the pedal controls so its the same as bypass and when its on, then turn up the controls to get the sound you are after.

Do not consider any of the negative reviews of this pedal. The pedal is well built, the knobs are well made and strong. This pedal produces a quality AC30 sound.

Bypass switch is not too loud to press down, and signal remains clean.

At this price its worth collecting a few of these True Tones - quality of sound equal to pedals costing 3 or 4 times the amount this one costs. Of course it is a Joyo.

Great pedal for (almost) free!

The HM Ac True tone aims to reproduce the legendary AC30 chime and put it in a pedal-sized box. It won't replace your real amp in terms of sound, but it does sound great. Just a bit different. However, it retains the characteristic chime and breakup of the ac30. In terms of sound sculpting, it has a very sensitive 3-way eq and a voice knob, which affects the mids and the gain of the pedal and can take you from perfectly clean or a tad dirty classic ac tone to a modern hi-gain version of the ac's tone. Very versatile pedal. It's produced in china and has all the pros and cons that comes with this fact. The wires inside this beast are thin and don't seem sturdy. It also produced quite some noise if you crank the gain real high (and its got more gain than anyone needs). However, the casing is solid and made of metal. It could take some serious beating and still be intact. The price, however, for this good sounding pedal, is a steal. All in all, a great pedal. I recommend it to anyone looking for an ac tone in a convenient box to use live, with a wide range amp or with a guitar amp to add that special chime.
