Black Cat Pedals Introduces the Bee Buzz

June 2, 2011

imgBlack Cat Pedals is pleased to announce the Black Cat Bee Buzz, a dual channel fuzz/boost pedal based on the original Roland Bee Baa. The project began as a limited Custom Shop run of 50 pedals. The Black Cat Custom Bee Buzz was an instant hit and sold out quickly, so the folks at Black Cat have made it a permanent part of their line. In addition to retaining the expensive, upscale features of the Custom Bee Buzz, the new Black Cat Bee Buzz is now available in five custom colors - Coppertone, Limeade, Candy Blue, Candy Red, and Denim Blue.

From Black Cat:
The Black Cat Bee Buzz is our version of the original Roland Bee Baa, one of the classic icons of great vintage fuzz 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. 
Bee Buzz Features:
* Transparent color brushed aluminum enclosure
* Elegant top-grade knobs and hardware
* Cool black glass epoxy PCB with yellow silkscreen
* Metal film resistors and audio grade capacitors
* 3PDT true-bypass switches and Switchcraft jacks
* Uses 2.1mm Boss style power jack, or internal 9V battery
* Bi-Color LED to indicate Fuzz/Boost modes
* Based on original Roland Bee Baa design
* Hand-wired, Boutique quality, Made in USA

The new Black Cat Bee Buzz retails for $225.
