You've got what I believe is the two modes of the 1966
I was assuming 1 of them was an MK1.5, thanks for clearing that up. And congrats on the score!
Yeah.....I had some help when I made that pedal, ay. :bong2:

The circuit called 'Super Bee' is basically a MKI.5 and the circuit that would be the stock 1966 (the Angry Wasp) is actually closer to the 1966 in Super Bee mode :smashed: All three circuits run into the same output pot, 100k me thinks, so the stock Vox/1966 board running into this gets a mighty kick in the bass regions, as stock it would be 50k. Confusing shit is confusing.

Nice read though, man!...wicked pics too!! :badlove:

Nice one!.... I'm genuinely glad to see that it went to you. Congrats! I didn't actually see what it went for in the end, but of all the pedals that have sold for a high premium, this appears to be the most worthy.

D, that was an excellent write up for this pedal. i'm picking up one of the 66/super bee pedals next week and i cant wait to compare the that version of the super bee to my yellow stand alone super bee pedal. Should be fun.

I'll bring it with me to the Show. Wanna use it onstage?


hey D, i was just putting a feeler out to see if you might make it up there, i'm super psyched to meet you and JP!!! :crackjam:

i wasn't really asking you to bring it, though i'd love to check that beast out....

maybe for soundcheck if you're there a bit early.... but live? you've seen my pedals.... with half the paint scraped off! :paranoid: i think i'd be way too freaked to have it around my stupid feet!! :smashed:

I'd love to hear some clips of that beast!

What does the filter control do? Is it pregain, or a bias or something?
