Tym Guitars Fuzzilla

This is my homage to the GREAT Companion/Shen-ei FY2 using 2 old stock C945 transistors. This pedal was THE original Japanese fuzz pedal also sold as the original Univox Superfuzz in the US in the metal wedge shaped enclosure.

This effect would be on more recordings than it is given credit for. It was an early full bodied transistor fuzz that gave way to the AWESOME 6 transistor Shen-ei/Superfuzz of the early 70's but this is still a GREAT fuzz in it’s own right.

I have added a toggle switch for “Mothra” or “Gamera” which goes from std FY2 with a slight boost to bring it up to bypass volume (the original dropped in volume like most early fuzzes) to an FY2 with tone control and more boost. Volume and gain are the only other things you’ll need.
