What are the differences between the OC71/OC76 vs. OC83/OC76? Also, how close to the Super Bee pedal is the more muscular Super Bee setting on the 2010 '66?

More so. I would think. I don't have a R&G '66 myself.

OC71/OC76 - smoother, a little less gain.

OC83/OC76 - mote bite, s'more gain.

T'is only subtle but its there.

The Super Bee pedal has more midrange drive. The Super Bee setting a'la 2010 has more low end push and shove.

If you wanted a real Super Bee then you shoud have got one From Hoochies. That pedal is pretty damn special and would be one of the last things I would ever sell.

I have a '66 but this true Super Bee has some Savoir Faire that I don't know if you can get with a '66 :party:

Peace,

Mine 1966 landed yesterday. I only tried it on bass so far, but I must say that super bee mode is very bass heavy :crackjam:

Just received an Orange one from Joe loaded with Mullard OC71/83 (1 of 5) and, wow, it's a monster! :badlove:

Run to your local DAM dealer (I mean Joe) and order one right away. Callers standing by :hihi:

My Orange 66 landed a week or so ago :hihi:

The email from Joe was a very nice surprise as I'd forgotten about putting my name down on the beggars banquet list.

Now David if you have any (DAM Professional) Mk II's lying around I am still on the beggars list for that little box of fun ... :marx:
