Fredric Effects release Deeply Unpleasant Companion

Fredric Effects have announced the Deeply Unpleasant Companion bass fuzz pedal.

The Deeply Unpleasant Companion is an improved version of the Shin-Ei FY-2 Companion Fuzz. Following requests from bass players, Fredric have modified this circuit to preserve more of the low frequencies and added a clean blend function, allowing the user to mix the clean signal with the fuzz according to taste. The buffers used in the blend circuit also have the added bonus of bringing a touch more clarity to the fuzz than the standard Unpleasant Companion, while retaining its uncompromising character.

Like the company's Unpleasant Companion, this pedal also features a volume boost to avoid the volume drop characteristic of vintage Shin-Ei FY-2 pedals. Check out the Fredric demo here:
