BJF Honey Bee Overdrive gives you the overdrive sound of vintage Supro amps, which were used on Led Zeppelin's first albums. Sounds and reacts just like a small tube amp with worn tubes and speaker. Special edition pedal handmade by the designer Björn Juhl himself. One of the best overdrive pedals ever made.
In the 2020 model Björn has put a lot of emphasis on getting the controls to work together better so that you can get more useful sounds out of the whole range of the pedal. "The magic setting on a Honey Bee is every knob at 11 o'clock.
In some scenarios you might have wanted to add just a little more treble
but this often results in a loss in that elusive low end thump that has
become this pedal's signature. I have now extended the range of the
tone control to let you dial in that extra high end shimmer while
keeping those bass frequencies overdriving in all their golden glory."
Volume: Sets output volume level.
Drive: Sets the amount of overdrive. Good starting point is at 12 o'clock so that you can get a feel for the dynamics of the pedal. Honey Bee follows your playing dynamics and volume control changes just like a tube amp, even at the highest gain settings.
Nature: Tone control. At 7 o'clock you will have more bass and low mids. Towards 5 o'clock the focus moves to higher frequencies.
