Beebaa alternative

Post by Sk10 » Fri Oct 05, 2018 6:39 pm

I'm looking for a not so expensive alternative for my crusty Roland Beebaa.

A pedal that doesn't take as much real estate as the original would be nice.
I don't need the treble boost circuit.
I need a lot of volume... way above unity gain...
Any recommendations?

Maybe the Stomp Under Foot Son of a Bee?

I think John at Basic Audio did a few versions as well, although I could be wrong. :hmm:

I'm in the same boat! Absolutely love the BeeBaa!

Been considering trying a Maxon Fire or an Anarchy Audio Baa Bzz for ages but haven't gotten around to pulling the trigger...

And the possible reason for that is that I currently use an Analog Fox Tone Machine clone on my board and it has - way above unity gain, a similar gnarly fuzz character about it, and the octave up as a separate footswitch, it's a great board alternative for that type of fuzztone and doesn't leave me wanting a whole lot more! I love it with the Bass VI

^ You're right, John Lyons did a couple. My brother used to have a Black Cat version which (as I remember) was pretty good.

Wasn't there a CreepyFingers too? I could be wrong of course...

You can talk to Jimmy Behan (Super Electric Effects) who made a killer Beebaa pedal (I have one). He has shops on eBay and Reverb, and also is a forum member here.
