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.

Frederic Effects has been planning this one for a while, and are very proud of the result. They measured the last Shin-Ei (actually Kimbara branded) FY-2 to pass through their 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

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