The folks at Fredric Effects have 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 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 and the controls are:
FY-2: Fuzztone, Volume (little switch does nothing)
FY-6: Gain/Sustain, Volume, tone switch
