    I'm interested in picking up a honey bee. So far the only online retailers I've found are Tone Factor and Musictoyz. Anyone have experiences with these retailers; good, bad or indifferent?

    Thanks!

    I've had nothing but good experiences with Tone Factor.

    MusicToyz- just call first to make sure something is in stock and you'll be all set. I've been frustrated a couple times when I ordered something that did not show "Not In Stock" only to find out a while later that there is a monthlong wait. But if you just take the time to call first, there should be no problem. Best to use the phone and not email if you want a quick response.

    Both ToneFactor and 'Toyz are out of Honey Bees as of when I called this morning ;)

    But Teddy did say that he is literally expecting a batch in any day now... I think he mentioned that they shipped out a month ago or something like that.

    Thanks all! On your advice I called Musictoyz and the honey bee is expected in about 1 week. Although online it shows in stock. Also tone factor shows in stock until you try to place an order, then the website shows temporarily out of stock. Oh well, I'm getting an Eternity any day now and need to back off the GAS a little.

    He's probably the quickest method. I got my EGDM in about a week directly from BJFE.

    his email is leomuser@aol.com

    Thanks for the info JofZ and pacomc79!

    And Da5Id - I just got my Eternity today... SWEET. It took the best attributes I really liked in several pedals I'd sold and combined them in just the right way. I'm sure you'll love yours. The bad thing is that it makes other ODs around it that you thought were good sound 'pedal-y'.

    For those about to Rock... I would have received it already, but asked Sean to do something different with the paint job. He sent it somewhere on Monday to customize it. I'm looking forward to the pedal, but also sort of jazzed about what it will look like (lame, but I thought it would be fun). Thanks for the feedback and inspiration to wait for it...

    Yeah definitely Dean (pinkstrat)......I had a SBEQ in 6 days and a HB in 5. And he is utterly pleasant and very, very helpful.

    Da5Id - interested to see what your Eternity looks like! Mine's got the 'tobacco sunburst' kind of finish, but matte, not glossy. And there's nothing wrong with having cool cosmetics! Enjoy it!

    And to Mojoman, JKoeth, pacomc79, and JofZ - I emailed and paid Dean last night ;) - said the wait is about 10 days. Thanks again for the info!

    FYI, I changed my mind on the Honey Bee (since I already have overdrive pedals I like) and ordered a Sea Blue EQ from Pinkstrat. I'll probably get the addiction and order more BJF pedals as I'm a bit compulsive. :) I'm interested in using the EQ to supplement my tone when the Carr Mercury has the boost engaged and tone stack removed.

    I'll post a picture of the Eternity when it arrives. Sean let me know today that it's still being customized and should be here in a week or so....

    I'm interested too. The Lovepedal website shows the pedal as a cream? color. Kinda ugly or even "fugly" compared to the Tobacco burst that I'm use to seeing.
    I'd like to pick an Eternity up to stack it with my Timmy that just arrived. I hope the T-burst is still standard.

    Anyone want to suggest what BJF pedal would stack nicely with a Timmy and a Hayseed 30? OD pedal that is.

    I'm pretty sure Steve's Music still has an Eternity or 2 in stock... ask him what paintjob they're available in. I just ordered and received mine from him this week, and here's a link to a pic of my pedal:

    Although, I have to say I think the cream color looks pretty cool too. Kinda like a bathroom fixture or something.

    I think the Eternity and Timmy would stack really well together (how off am I getting in this thread?)... I had a Timmy, and I think the E's girth would help to thicken the Timmy and smooth out some of the grit.

    As far as BJF pedals- I've only owned the BBOD so far, and thought it was a bit too fuuiizzy. High hopes for the Bee!

    The Little Green Wonder is a great stacker as it has less compression and more EQ variation than most drives - it can go from clean boost to big bottom OD - its headroom and distortion complexity also make it ideal for stacking......
