Bearfoot Honey Beest

Been awhile since a new post on the main site. Life can get in the way, but here's a new one. Keep an eye out for more, we still here and going strong.

From the Source:

Descended from the Honey Bee, this one is capable of more dynamic dirt and quicker and thicker honey. If that’s what you’re after, the Beest can help.

The Honey Beest is an extension of the classic Honey Bee, adding saturation and treble to a much loved design. The heart of the Beest is the addition of a pregain booster controlled by the Pregain knob. The pregain booster is not a simple linear booster, but has an intentional upper mid and treble accent that lets you mix the two gain stages to get just the right saturation and treble. The Nature and Pregain knobs make a wide-ranging EQ section. The Drive and Pregain knobs give full control of the distortion saturation and compression. This also makes the “big bottom” part of the Nature control more useful. Turning the Nature knob full left and the Pregain full right creates a full range overdrive…sort of like if you’ve got a 50-watt 4×12 Supro.

  5. It still indicates "unverified" in the tags section. It will show up as verified there after someone builds it and verifies. There will typically be comments from whoever builds it as well, indicating whether it worked or if there were/are issues. Keep checking in.

  9. Should the input go from the 22n and 14.7k to the gate of the first 2n5952? It is going to the source in the layout. Just wondering....

    1. my screw up. i had to actually change a few other things, both transistors were set up wrong (made it for pinout "DGS" instead of "DSG" when i realized i had the wrong pinout originally and found an error or two. stuck with 1 standing resistor so I don't have to make the layout any larger. it's all fixed now.

    3. And wouldn't you know it. Out of the thousands of parts I have sitting around, I'm missing 2 components. Gotta make an order. Thanks again for the layout. I suppose I should finish the other 3 that I have partially done but, might as well add another...

      Thanks
