    DOD Gonkulator reissue. A ring modulator and a Grunge pedal all packed into one pretty enclosure.

    The pedal you seek is called Black Licorice made by Danelectro. They were thoughtful enough to put an octave and a Metal Zone in one enclosure.

    It’s like a cross between distortion and fuzz. You can make it sound BAAADDD if you want.

    I came here to say this. Gonkulator rules.

    Or maybe try a bit crusher. That might help get your point across.

    Basic Audio has more than one pedal that could meet your needs.

    If you're really going for beehive/bees in a can sound then nothing brats the Tech21 XXL. Basically it copes the Beatles Revolution Number One sound and that's it. Turning any of the dials makes it louder, softer, muffled or brighter but the distortion is nothing but bacon frying in a pan.

    Yes, it does make some craptacular sounds.
    And no.
    The XXL by itself is pretty “meh”. But stacked with other fuzz pedals, things can get “interesting”.
    My vote is for the Boss Metal Zone.
    Especially if you run it into the front of the amp. nasty.

    Use any fuzz pedal (set to max) and follow with an eq, rolling off the low end, and boosting the highs.

    TWA Dynamorph gets no traction hereabouts, but it is an interesting pedal with quite a spectrum of nasty, buzzy, fuzzy sounds.

    Really salivating in anticipation of the release of that Beetronics Swarm. Two months or more, Filipe said in a NAMM interview. :(

    The BumbleFuzz narrowly misses the $269.99 pedal threshold and sells for $250.

    TWA Dynamorph exceeds the $269.99 criteria! It sells for $299.

    I'll throw in a different solution. ANY distortion, but after it put an EQ pedal, like a 5-band. Then just turn the top band(s) way up, the others way down. Easy to disengage, and can do way more than just bees if you want it to.

    While we're all naming our fav pedals, I'm not a fuzz guy but the Function F(x) ClusterFuzz can be dialed up to chaos levels. What are you recording into? There are several plugins that make nasty...
