One Control Introduces the Honey Bee Overdrive

One Control Introduces the Honey Bee Overdrive

A dual-mode overdrive designed in collaboration with Björn Juhl.

Montreal, Quebec (December 4, 2017) -- This pedal needs no introduction. If you have been a long-time fan of BJFe, then you know that this is one of his best creations. The Honey Bee Overdrive is renowned for its warm overdrive crunch. Over the years, there have been several revisions of this sought-after pedal.


"We are proud to announce that this version from One Control, is the best version yet, as it contains all the revisions and improvements from previous models." - Franco Caruso, Brand Manager for One Control

The Honey Bee is an overdrive pedal that resembles a guitar amp that is set to a "crunch" setting. It integrates flawlessly with other effects and distorted amplifiers, giving your overdrive a warm tone. Switch from a clean to overdrive tone by simply twisting a knob. No matter what setting you prefer, enjoy the free headroom-ish response, just like your favorite broken-in amplifier.


This pedal is especially unique due to the Vintage & Modern mode switch.  Users now have the choice to choose between the original voicing of the Honey Bee (Vintage Mode) or the new and improved voicing (Modern Mode).

Vintage Mode (Original sounding Honey Bee OD): With a mild and classic overdrive tone, expect the renowned and unique high frequency response.

Modern Mode:  Compared to the Vintage mode, you'll notice a gain increase, especially in the low ends.  When Modern mode is selected, the 'Nature' control range becomes wider.  Additionally, we have compiled all improvements from previous revisions. It's important to note that basic tone color characteristics have not changed.
