The Bearfoot Honey Bee has been a staple of the overdrive landscape for years, and finally after much experimentation, the Uber Bee is the third in the Bee series and was it ever worth the wait.
The Uber Bee is kind of like the Honey Bee and Honey Beest in one. Where the Bee is especially tuned for lower gain, such is the Beest for higher gain applications. The Uber Bee stretches from the cleanest cleans of the Bee to the raunchiest crunch of the Beest. It really is the next logical step in Bee canon.
For players unfamiliar with the Bee series, the original is meant to sound like the gentle breakup experienced when cranking up a tiny vintage combo amp far beyond reasonable levels. The resulting sound is a crisp saturation that many players have found to be their final overdrive purchase. The unique Nature knob serves as a sort-of EQ that accentuates harmonics in either upper or lower registers. This knob is also found on the Uber Bee, as well as a Treble knob for pleasing frequency interactions.
Make no mistake, the Uber Bee is definitely an overdrive, as turning the Drive knob fully clockwise will attest to. The full sweep of this control will cover any genre you could hope to explore.
