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.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
