I thought I was done trying EVERY boutique pedal known to man. Ultimately I settled on a Timmy as my fav into my Bruno UG30. And for my BFDR I could not find anything that worked as well as an original Marshall Blues Breaker. Others were too bright, didn't tame the brittleness, etc as well as the Marshall. Well I'd read somewhere here that the HB was really nice into BF Fenders so I got one off of Dean at SOS Strings. This pedal is right up there with the Timmy for me. Absolutely killer. Does not have that 'pedal' sound at all, smooth but dynamic and sparkly. This is just at apartment levels so far, the true test will be with our band at VOLUME. But I know the only other time I connected with a pedal this thoroughly was with the Timmy so I'm pretty sure it'll hold up. I still like the Timmy a bit more into the Bruno as that amp is smooth to begin with so the brightness of the Timmy works well there. But into the BFDR the Honey Bee is best by a WIDE margin. I'm very impressed.
