SuperBee for Teh Hevay?

Anyone using their SuperBee for heavy rockin? From the description on the blurb it sounds like the Bee could be a Sabbath-worshippers dream!!!

I don't think it's that heavy. yeah it is buzzy and raspy but the Titan or Meathead is a lot more heavy. I've never tried the Bee though but I have a 1966 with the Super Bee mode. I would say that the Meathead would be the ultimate pedal for heavy distortion/fuzz. But I have no idea what black sabbath used for pedals.

If I'm not mistaken the Super Bee pedal has a lot more bass than the Super Bee Mode.

I think the Super Bee could be quite Sabbath based on the home page clip.
IMO: SG + Red Rooster (rhythm) + Super Bee (lead) + Faustone Value Klipper + Dark British Amp = Sabbath.

Cheers D. Thats pretty much what I was hoping to hear, and enough to persuade me to chase one! Its the subtle differences that count. Its great that there are folk on this forum who understand what I mean by 'heavy' too. Thanks! Now some fucker sell me their Bee!

I'm really looking forward to getting ahold of a Super Bee to use for heavy stuff too. I really like the Super Bee setting on the older '66 that I have already, so a superer version of that would definitely suit me. I'd love to hear what you guys could do with one David!! BTW, got the EP in the mail yesterday.. great, great stuff as usual!!

I have one of the yellow super bees and it is a fuzz sound that is matched by no other fuzz pedal i've ever heard. It is its own beast. Big D described it perfectly. Can't really add much to what he said except that i just love the tight bass fuzz response and when the fuzz is dialed back, it lands somewhere magical. THIS IS A MUST HAVE PEDAL. I love cranking this through my early 70's vibrolux reverb>my first amp bought back in 1973. :smashed: :party: :tu:

Cheers justin, glad you like it! We're recording a session for the bbc next week so I guess the Bee will be used and abused then. Gotta say i am really looking forward to this wee beast!

Hey Slo, I did a clip of a Super Bee with my Orange amp it's in the "Sounds & Videos > Us" section.
I think it is great for heavy stuff. If you use high output pickups I would recommend a booster after the pedal if you want to get to unity gain. Unless you leave it always on. :zgrin:
