Mad Professor Sweet Honey Overdrive Factory
Same tone, same look, but we did design a new pcb that helps us build these lot faster and for better price.
The quality is the same, same parts but now pcb mounted pots, jacks and switch.
The box is also not the same Made In Sweden Elfa box that is made for heavy industry but a high quality pedal box that is bit lighter but very durable. That helps us to save a lot of money.
The only complain we have heard about the pedals have been the price, this is our answer to that.
We still make the handwired pedals for those who prefer them.
Mad Professor Sweet Honey Overdrive (SHOD) is a touch sensitive low gain overdrive pedal hand made in Finland.
It is designed to overdrive distorted amplifiers and give dynamically controlled light overdrive on clean sounds.
Distortion level can be controlled by pick attack and pickup strenght. Harder picking for overdrive and softer for cleaner tone.
With the unique Focus control you can adjust the feel and dynamics of the pedal as well as overal EQ.
Turning Focus CCW you need to play harder to get distortion and the tone is softer, great for jazz and blue.
Focus turned CW gives a slight treble boost and earlier distortion.
This type of overdrive has previously only been found in the BJF Honey Bee but is now presented in Mad Professor version. The Mad Professor SHOD has a tighter sound and is more versatile as it was designed to work with all kinds of guitars and amplifiers.
Like all Mad Professor pedals, SHOD is hand made in Finland using only premium components, to give years of trouble free operation with superb musical tone.
