Following on from the modded Ruby Red Rooster, Mad Professor has announced its second custom pedal during the lockdown, the Sweet Honey Overdrive with Fat Bee mod.
Since its production line factory has been operating at somewhat reduced capacity due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the team utilized the time freed up to manufacture a limited run of custom stompboxes.
Mad Professor has unveiled a new mod for its limited-edition custom series Sweet Honey Overdrive. The mod follows feedback regarding the unit’s bass character, as the company puts into words:
“Everybody knows that no one pedal can marry happily with all amps. A few times Mad Professor’s headquarters got a message that Sweet Honey Overdrive could use more bass with this and that amp.”
The brand had already created a Deluxe variant of the Sweet Honey Overdrive, which includes a bass control acted before the drive section. The Fat Bee mod injects an extra bass character after the drive circuit; hence preserving the character of the drive.
“The sheer dynamics of the Sweet Honey Overdrive make it one of those pedals you have to own before you die. Like a great valve amp, it cleans up when you ease off your attack on your guitar’s strings and then unleashes glorious harmonically rich overdrive when you dig in,” Mad Professor CEO Harri Koski remarked.
The Sweet Honey Overdrive with Fat Bee mod is already available for €208.
