$189 is your total cost.

Fredric Effects are popular British guitar pedals from the UK, handmade in North London. Their Classic Super Unpleasant Companion is a combined Shin-Ei FY-2 Companion Fuzz (made famous by Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood's bass sound on "Exit Music for a Film"), and an FY-6 Superfuzz clone in a single enclosure. It's exactly the same dimensions as the original Companion Fuzz.

Fredric Effects has been planning this one for a while, and they are very proud of the results. They measured the last Shin-Ei (actually Kimbara branded) FY-2 to pass through our doors and got these new enclosures professionally fabricated to the same dimensions.

They've improved upon the vintage boxes by using 1.2mm steel (still not heavy, but no longer bendy) welding the joins, and using threaded 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.
