(PRESS RELEASE): Fredric Effects are proud to announce the new Deeply Unpleasant Companion bass fuzz pedal.

The Fredric Effects Deeply Unpleasant Companion is an improved version of the Shin-Ei FY-2 Companion Fuzz. Following requests from bass players, we've modified this circuit to preserve more of the low frequencies and added a clean blend function. So you can 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 Unpleasant Companion, this pedal also features a volume boost circuit to avoid the volume drop characteristic of vintage Shin-Ei FY-2 pedals. Although designed with the bass player in mind, this pedal also sounds great on electric guitar - especially when used with distortions and overdrives.

The Deeply Unpleasant Companion is priced at £95RRP. It is available direct from Fredric Effects and from selected shops and online retailers.
