The Beetronics Royal Jelly is the latest unique design from the California company, pairing a couple of top notch Overdrive and Fuzz circuits together for an extremely versatile gain pedal that covers all bases. By putting the two circuits in parallel, the Royal Jelly allows for both independent footswitching and seamless blending from one tone to the other.
The Royal Jelly is split in to two halves - Queen and King, and each has a set of controls unlike most other dual gain pedals. The central Honey control sets the overall gain of the pedal, while each side of the circuit has its own knob for blending between the Overdrive and Fuzz circuits, resulting in a huge range of distinct gain tones across two channels, that can be used independently or blended together for a fine tuned tone. The Royal Jelly also features a Dry mix control knob for blending in your clean signal, making it perfect for people looking to experiment with effects on bass guitar, synths or even drums.
The Royal Jelly also features separate controls for high and low EQ, allowing you to cut or boost those frequencies by up to 10dB, allowing you to further dial in your dream tone. The Royal Jelly also features a vintage style Buzz footswitch, adding a piercing treble boost style thrust that kicks the Fuzz up a notch.
Beetronics pedals are all lovingly handmade in California, and their range boasts some of the most aesthetically and tonally exciting boutique pedals we have heard. With a focus on unique sounding gain pedals, Beetronics are a cult favourite for players looking for fuzz and drive tones that you won't find anywhere else. On top of this, their distinctive aged metal enclosures and bee themed PCB layouts ensure that they ooze cool, while their handmade design means no two are exactly alike.
