"Like its predecessor, The Sweet Honey Deluxe responds to your picking dynamics very much like a real tube amp would. Many overdrives try to replicate this experience, but few succeed as well as the Sweet Honey. Even toward the upper limits of its gain range, softer picking will yield clean-ish notes, while heavy downstrokes will become fully distorted.

This delicate balance of clean and dirty is further enhanced by the Sweet Honey’s unique Focus control that I mentioned previously. In short, this knob tweaks how easily the circuit distorts. When fully counterclockwise, the grind is mellower and considerably less aggressive. Turing the Focus knob clockwise will create earlier distortion, as well as add a pleasant sizzle and a slight treble boost.

Thanks to this clever implementation, both the original SHOD and the Deluxe are excellent tools to push an already driven amp to the breaking point. They’re great to use as a standalone drive, too, and clean up well with your volume knob. But where the two part ways is in the EQ section. The Deluxe adds a post-distortion treble cut-boost and a pre-distortion control that shifts how the bass and low mids are distorted. These controls combine to add an ideal level of tonal customization, helping you match the pedal to whatever amp and guitar combination you have.

On the whole, the Sweet Honey Deluxe delivers a very solid low-to-medium-gain experience. The Deluxe version is a significant upgrade from the standard version and well worth the extra cash. And if you’re someone who’s obsessed with dynamics and want an overdrive to match your style, listen closely—this is it."
