The Gradiente JS-2 is a joystick that was sold on the Brazilian market. It is actually the same joystick that was sold for the MSX by many different vendors in different colors, and as such is widespread. The actual OEM manufacturer is not known.

It features two separate trigger buttons, one on the top of the stick, and the other on the base. The stick offers little resistance, and the suction cups harden or deform over time. Button 2 may be difficult to press, and require fixing.

Near identical versions were available from the following brands:

Note: Gradiente used the same box for the JS-1 gray/green model and the JS-2 black/orange model, the appropriate reference appears only on the box. The Expert logo was also used on some boxes.
