Unpleasant Companion MKII


The Fredric Effects Unpleasant Companion MKII is an improved version of the classic Shin-Ei FY-2 Companion Fuzz, modified with a volume boost circuit to avoid the volume drop characteristic of vintage units and a scoop control to add to the versatility of the effect. It accurately captures the sound of the original, but also adds a bit more. The Unpleasant Companion lives up to its name, and is a harsh transistor fuzz unlike any other!


Many thanks to Christian of Magnetic Effects for this demo.
