Fredric Effects

This is a clone of the Shin-Ei FY-2 Companion Fuzz, modified with a volume boost circuit to avoid the volume drop characteristic of vintage units. The Unpleasant Companion lives up to its name, and is a harsh transistor fuzz unlike any other!

All parts are the best quality available. Neutrik jacks. True bypass via Alpha or Cliff footswitch, powered by battery or standard center-neg DC jack, red LED.

Small, MXR-sized enclosure finished in custard yellow with scary Tengu graphic.
