    The One Control Silver Bee OD 4K Mini is a customized version by BJF himself based on the legendary amp-like pedal, Honey Bee OD.The mini size makes it possible to install it on various pedal boards without taking up much space.BJF's long-term research has made it possible to reproduce the original tone even with mini-sized SMD parts.The design method differs between conventional handmade pedals that use through-hole parts and mini pedals. Mini pedals have the effect of "ghost components" that do not exist as "parts" and do not appear on the circuit, so if you simply make the same circuit diagram, the sound will be different.BJF has taken into consideration all the effects from the characteristics of the parts to the ghost components to reproduce the sound of the BJFE original pedal.With the sound that BJF himself was completely satisfied with, we were able to release it in a mini size.The pedal design also uses the BJFE style.The Honey Bee OD features a high response that can be easily adjusted from clean to overdrive with the touch of your hand. A brighter tone has been achieved.The flat low end and sharp, taut top end create a tone reminiscent of the characteristics of an American combo amp.A gorgeous tone that goes sharply forward despite its thick presence. Its tone, which even feels noble, is flexible enough to be used with a low gain and always on.It has the same gain range as the Honey Bee OD, but it's also great for more modern rock.The 2-band equalizer installed in the Silver Bee OD 4K Mini is widely controllable, allowing you to freely control the balance of the tones.The T knob controls the brightness, high frequency components, and overtone components of the tone, allowing you to create a drive tone with a beautiful metallic sound.The B knob is centered around the low mids, allowing you to adjust the tone to match the stage, the connected amp, and the characteristics of your guitar.A high-response overdrive can sometimes feel difficult to use, but the Silver Bee OD 4K Mini has a solid presence in the tone itself, creating a sound that is easy to play while maintaining a high response. It has the expressive power to freely control the tone at hand, as well as sharpness and speed in cutting.And under the Output terminal is a VINTAGE/MODERN switch. This is a switch that changes the appearance of the overall sound, especially near the low frequencies.Originally, it was a switch to switch between the current sound and the earliest sound of the Honey Bee OD, on which the Silver Bee OD was based. When Silver Bee OD was first developed as a circuit, it was already based on "modern" HBOD, but if it was based on early HBOD... it is a switch to select the sound.This switch is a very sensible switch, and depending on the guitar and amp you use, you may feel that the sound does not change at all.However, you can make the overall sound a little thicker or just a little cleaner.● ControlV: Adjusts the overall volume.D: Adjusts the intensity of distortion.T: Controls the tone with a focus on the high frequency components.B: Adjusts the tone balance according to the characteristics of the amplifier, centered around the low-mid range.MODERN/VINTAGE switch: Switch to switch headroom.The upper side (MODERN) is a little thicker, and the lower side (VINTAGE) is a slightly cleaner tone. Depending on the combination of amp and guitar, you may feel that you can't hear the sound at all, but you can make sensual fine adjustments with the switch.●SpecInput impedance: 270kOutput impedance: 25KDrive voltage: 9V center negativeCurrent consumption: 3.6mAS/N ratio: -90dBmSize: 39Wx100Dx31H mm (not including protrusions) 47Wx100Dx48H mm (including protrusions)Weight: Approximately 160 grams (200 grams with batteries inserted)*Batteries are not included.Type: Overdrive (for guitar) Adapter: 9V center minus Battery drive: 9V battery Control: V, D, B, T, MODERN/VINTAGE switchOne Control Silver Bee OD 4K min
