    Man, I thought I'd have to wait months & months for this pedal but I'll be damned if I didn't just get notification that my pedal is READY!

    Wow!

    Only took 2 1/2 weeks! Thank you Bjorn & a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS to you too!

    Awesome! :D

    That is amazing! I had to wait over 6 months for mine. You are very lucky indeed or you must have caught Bjorn at a very good time.

    What really sold me on this pedal was in fact your Youtube Video Bobby D.

    well........it's an amazing pedal, and has become my favorite guitar overdrive pedal of all that i have ever owned.

    enjoy it! the honeybee is really quite special, and also goes REALLY well with a nice Dyna Red stacked into it :rockin

    yeah BJ still makes them all with his own hands, and it makes the most sense to make them in batches since he makes lot of different models - so they come in waves ~ sometimes you have to wait and sometimes they smack you in the face right away :rockin

    I've placed my order on 12/01 and got the notification on 12/22. Nice surprise! Now I have to wait until the postman recovers after Christmas party... And based on my previous experiences it will be 'round 01/14/2010. Man, I hate holidays!

    I couldn't agree more on both counts. The Honeybee is simply incredible. It also stacks very very well with an EDGM. This is a dream board for me, it can go from Marshall to Vox in a heartbeat.

    Amazingly it sounds 1000 times better than she l@@ks!

    Damn this thing is everything & more than I've read about & heard. Incredibly versatile & I've barely played with the damn thing. Can't wait till I've dialed it in!

    WoW

    How much does a Honey Bee cost if you just get on the wait list for one? I'm actually very interested in this now. If someone could give me more information on getting on the wait list for a Honey Bee I would really appreciate it.

    The HB is a great platform to run (stack) pedals into. It sits at the end of my chain and makes every OD pedal in front of it far more dynamic and touch sensitive. It's a nice gain pedal on it's own, but being pushed by an Eternity or TS808-type into a Marshall and POW! Magic.

    Set the volume just above the bypassed signal, set the nature to noon or 1 o'clock and the gain to taste and you've the start of a nice tone recipe.

    Good luck with the HB!

    congrats on the HBOD. BEST OD I've ever had.... ok, some are more high gain, some are more well known, etc.... but none of then sound and do what this baby does. the real beauty is when you stack other into it. The HB acutally places that OTHER pedal on steroids. BION, the HB can make another pedal and a mediocre amp very gigable!!!... I have a HB after an MP LGW(same circuit build as the BJF LGW) and DRD and it absolutely kills!!...
