Valentine's Bee Buzz from Black Cat

Check out this limited edition Valentine's Bee Buzz from Black Cat Pedals! A manufacturing mishap left us with five red Bee Buzz pedals with a PINK silkscreen. There's a story behind this one that's sure to leaving you feeling warm and fuzzy.

When we got our last batch of Bee Buzz powdercoated and silkscreened, the red ones had a bit of a problem - the white paint on the silkscreen turned out pink! So we had a bunch of red and pink enclosures. Greg jokingly said that they looked like they could be Valentine's pedals. I thought that was actually a good idea, so we saved five of them and had the rest rescreened.

It seems I didn't learn my lesson after my attempt to do the graphics for the Black Cat Halloween pedals. So what you see here is yet another of my forays into stompbox arts and crafts. Sure, it's not for everyone, but I think it turned out rather well.

So the five red and pink enclosures were transformed into Valentine's Bee Buzz pedals, complete with heart-shaped rhinestones, and were offered to our mailing list subscribers. Each of the Valentine's Bee Buzz pedals came with a box of Russell Stover chocolates. I thought I may have gone a little overboard with the bling, but all five pedals sold within three hours.
