    I have a DRD, and BBOD. I play an AC30 and a Fender Deville - the pedals go well with each, but really shine with the Vox. The DRD can be a little bright through the vox though, so you might need to tame the treble control.

    I have the HB, DRD and the EGDM, and I use them with either a Mesa Lonestar Special 1x12 combo or a 65 Amps Soho Head and 2x12 Combo. Pedals go well with both amps (both EL84 amps), but as Nibus pointed out, working the treble control really helps (especially with the DRD).

    VOX AC15, Vox AC 30, Fender 64 Deluxe Reverb.

    HBOD, EGDM, Model H.

    These pedals are a cut above all others. They work well with the Vox and Fender.

    These are keepers.

    up to this point I've only has the BJFE Honey Bee, I play through a super reverb and Les Pauls/Strats/Teles. Wonderful tones.

    BTW sort of off topic but i strongly urge you to go for a non reissue super reverb... you could grab a blackface super for the price you would pay for a reissue.

    I have 7 of them, with 2 on the way. I'm not gonna' list 'em all.
    I use a Bruno UG30 reverb, a JMI AC-15 twin and soon a Komet Concorde.
    The AC-15 is a picky mother when it comes to pedals, though some of the BJF's sound iight through it.

    DRD with a Fender DRRI. It's one of my favorite pedals.

    i have checked the Honey Bee and Baby Blue with 69 super lead 100w and 68 super bass w/ yellow jackets, about 15w not too long ago.both pedals worked well with these amps.HB was my favourite with the Marshalls.

    My JTM45 absolutely LOVES my BJFE Honey Bee... And with a Klon hitting the HB for leads, I couldn't be happier!

    Honey Bee with Jamison combo (a bit Vox-y) and rarely with my old 4 x 10 Bassman. It really kills though the Basssman but that amp is so loud that it doesn't get out much.

    BJFE pedals sound great with both my amps (Fender Twin & AC30)...the Twin is more pedal-friendly but doesn't break up quite as nicely as the AC30. I've always preferred a clean amp sound (or maybe slightly overdriven) as a base, and then using pedals to color the tone...for this reason, I don't think Marshalls would work as well with Bjorn's stuff.
