    When the Honey Bee first came out I saw a wait time listed of around 2 weeks, but it is not listed anymore on the website. Is there still a wait time on these direct, or does Donner have stock built up?

    Also, I'm really looking for a good low gainer, but I mainly play Fender style guitars with single coils. Would you recommend the Honey Beest instead?

    I don't think there is on right now. The website doesn't say anything.

    I ordered one around the holidays and it arrived in five days. Great pedal, and good service.

    You totally should. It's truly amazing and lives up robots reputation.
    I'd there's a "Sunny Bee" finish one still available in the custom shop - you should get that one, it's amazing.
    You could also consider a Beest if you want higher gain. The 4knob seems pretty versatile.

    It has turned into my #1 overdrive over the past few months, especially when paired with the MP Forest Green comp (PCB version).

    I agree. The HBOD & the Ecstasy have become my #1 OD's.

    The HBOD is at least for me not even a pedal per se. It is an instrument to enhance what is there to a very large degree. I NEED one!!:p

    Mine is a Sunny Bee and it always goes in front of my original version Forest Green Comp. What a combination! Abandoned, your posts were the ones that pushed me over the edge on the Honey/Sunny Bee. Thanks a bunch! I knew in the first minute of playing it that it was a perfect fit for my playing style, ears, and tone taste.

    I'm so glad it worked for you and that I didn't lead you astray. :)
    Yeah I REALLY like that pedal, and that finish... Finally an OD pedals that looks as good as it sounds. :)

    Ya know, it's amazing how long of a wait time 3 days for shipping can be when you're waiting on a honey bee.

    I think Jet City Music is a dealer now. They might have some in stock.
