“Roland BeeGee fuzz pedal from the mid 70s. It comes from the same Roland/Boss series as the BeeBaa (fuzz), BF-1 (flanger), Funny Cat (fuzz/filter/thing), AP-2 (phaser) and a slew of other goodies. I had been on the hunt for one of these for a while thinking it would be some kind of thick octave fuzz like so many of its Japanese counterparts. I was happily mistaken!
The BeeGee definitely has its own sound to it. There is this overall rubbery quality, not unlike the Ibanez Standard Fuzz (but without the upper octave and heavy low end). At the same time it has this raw and raunchy tone, almost like an Italian Vox Tonebender but with a soft organic edge. It is very reactive to changes in guitar volume, pick attack and tone adjustments. This pedal is really great for leads too. It almost plays for you! I was able to liven’ it up a little bit by throwing a DOD 250 in front for a boost, which also pumped out quite a bit more gain and overall thickness.
This pedal is configured interestingly with a Toshiba OpAmp plus two 2SC1000GR silicon transistors:”
