Black Cat Bee Buzz Fuzz
The Black Cat Bee Buzz is our version of the original Roland Bee Baa, one of the classic icons of great vintage fuzz pedals. The Bee Buzz began as a Custom Shop project at the request of our Japanese distributor, who preordered twenty pedals. Our first prototype turned out so well, we decided to extend the run and made a total of fifty Black Cat Custom Bee Buzz pedals. We started by examining an original Roland Bee Baa, to be sure we would have an accurate reference for the original circuit. But we quickly noted many areas in the Bee Baa that needed improvement, such as excessive noise and lack of balance between the tone settings. In addition, the "Treble Boost" in the original Bee Baa was not a feature that most players found useful - so we worked on making a boost mode that would appeal to the modern guitarist.
