The Fredric Effects Super Unpleasant Companion is a combined Shin-Ei FY-2 Companion Fuzz and FY-6 Superfuzz clone in a single enclosure that's exactly the same dimensions as the original Companion Fuzz.

We've been planning this one for a while, and are very proud of the result. I measured the last Shin-Ei (actually Kimbara branded) FY-2 to pass through my doors and recently got round to reworking the plans and having a new batch of enclosures professionally fabricated. They've improved upon the vintage boxes by using 1.2mm steel (still not heavy, but no longer bendy!) welding the joins, and using treaded inserts for the side screws. The enclosures are powder coated for a hard-wearing finish, and the classy 'Super Unpleasant Companion' name plates have also been professionally manufactured.

The circuit is a faithful reproduction of both the FY-2 companion fuzz and FY-6 Superfuzz. Choose either with the big toggle switch and the controls are:

  • FY-2: Fuzztone, Volume (little switch does nothing)

  • FY-6: Gain/Sustain, Volume, tone switch
